564: Too Soon?

Aug 14, 2015
When is too soon for that celebrity comeback; that joke that is either brilliant or full-on repugnant; that parent-child conversation? This week: stories about a fallen man trying to kickstart his career with a reality show, and an awkward moment between a mom and a daughter.
Note: the Internet version of this episode includes un-beeped curse words. You can find a beeped version here.
  • Harmon Leon is a writer and comedian whose cocktail party story about “the-weirdest-gig-I-ever-did” is more weird…by a lot….than anyone else’s we’ve heard. He answered an ad several years ago that called for a hilarious sidekick to a celebrity on a hidden camera show. (30 minutes)

    Harmon runs the storytelling series Tale. The gig he did on can be found here.
