Eddie Brill, the long-time booker for The Late Show with David Letterman, had me over to his East Village apartment, where I was wowed not only by the plethora of photographs of him with everybody from Barack Obama to Paul McCartney but also by his captivating, on-going commentary on such a wide variety of topics. Aspiring and established comics alike should take note of this particular episode, as Brill shares what he looked for as he booked Letterman and still searches for as he books the Great American Comedy Festival in Johnny Carson’s hometown. Eddie provides us with food for thought as he shares his thoughts on food. We discuss whether comedy is a meritocracy – after we define that word. And this podcast episode itself closes the loop (after a near-record number of tangents). How so? Well, Eddie and I met as I took one of his renowned (and global) comedy workshops. And here I got to tell him about the comedy workshops we did this year in India as part of our US State Department-sponsored tour. Brill-iant. Enjoy.
