NEWSTALK 1010: IN DEPTH WITH TIM LONG AND COMEDIAN JESSICA KIRSON!

This week on the Richard Crouse Show we meet Tim Long. The Canadian comedy writer has been an executive and consulting producer on The Simpsons for more than twenty years, has written for The New York Times and The New Yorker and on July 30th, a movie he wrote called The Exchange, the true story of a socially awkward teen who discovers that a French exchange student is not as sophisticated and cultured as he hoped, will be available on VOD.

Then comedian Jessica Kirson stops by. We will talk about her feature-length documentary Hysterical, which explores the changing landscape of women in stand-up comedy… how she taught Robert DeNiro to be funny and her return to Just for Laughs.

JFL Pro calledRichard’s on stage Just for Laughs “In Conversation” with Trevor Noah “one of the best ‘In Conversation’ events ever.” Read all about it in the Hollywood Reporter! Some excerpts: “There are things to be angry about. There are reasons to mobilize. But some of this stuff Donald Trump does — hey, just laugh at that.” “The idea of him being in control of this country is a frightening thing. I also know you cannot be afraid when you’re laughing, but you also have to acknowledge there is a certain element of danger.”
