|Today, I'm very excited to be kicking off a feature that is 1.) my first real jaunt into original content as a staff member, and 2.) going to be a big player as far as comedy coverage on the site goes when looking into the future. I got the chance to have the wonderful Paul F. Tompkins be the first interviewee for my column Behind The Bits, which hopes to gather an in-depth look at the world of stand-up comedy. Head over to my blog to get more of a lowdown on this segment & to read the first half of our chat, and be sure keep an eye out here every Wednesday for future installments.|
