"Wild" Bill Dykes breaks down the history of comedy in New Orleans from 1998-2016. I caught up with Bill at NOCAF festival 2016 at the La Nuit comedy theater amongst an outpouring of twitter and Facebook hate from a rival New Orleans comedy cliche.

Highway Diary Ep 144 - Mikey Swenson

Mikey Swenson joins the Highway Diary podcast to talk about the night he had to leave New Orleans. Turns out, the life of an impulsive comic can lead you into a cadillac for a night of smoking and selling crack and drinking and driving with a stranger. Perhaps a wake-up call can come at the best time. Mikey Swenson, a revealing interview, and a road-trip to Point Pleasant, NJ.
