Host: Johnny Athmann
Have you ever wanted to be a comedian or musician? Would you like to know how it is to start out? It's not comedy clubs, it's not theaters, it's open-mics and shitty road gigs. Johnny Athmann hosts talks with folks about living that life, talk with other open-mic comics about their influences, their voice, their experiences, their horror stories, and themselves...while I talk over them...at times. We also talk about mental illness amongst entertainers as this is "This Drug Called Life Podcast." This drug, because our life is comedy and the drug called adreneline is a lifestyle we live onstage (life). Without adreneline, we risk being boring onstage; we all need This Drug Called Life, for "T0 live a life of comedy is to live a life worth commenting upon" This is a podcast about talking to contemporaries about why they talk, make music, and art, living on a life onstage, and what it means to them and how it may make them feel better.
