Corey Mack joins the Highway Diary podcast. He talks being in the army and barely missing being deployed in the aftermath of 9/11. He talks about doing comedy in New York City during his last few months of duty, and how this double-life quickly turned into his full time gig.
After being interrogated in a study room in the Library of UNO, we take a break for some time on the trampoline. We're joined by his wife, Iina Ester, and have a great talk about comedy philosophy, and navigating cliques.
Here is my day with Corey Mack! Enjoy.

Host of Comedy Gumbeaux every Thursday night at the Howlin' Wolf in New Orleans, RedBean joins me for a great episode of the podcast. RedBean talks about his appearance opposite Sylvester Stallone in Grudge Match. How casting directors are always walking into comedy shows looking for talent. And the importance of social media.
Redbean's road-dog Carrey Bee joins the podcast, and talks about his second time performing stand-up was at the Saenger Theater to do a half-hour opening for Sinbad.
Kyle Smith, Lace, and Byron join the podcast as we wait for our sets. Kyle Smith tries to pick up a girl who walks by.
We wrap the podcast up after the show, again talking about the importance of playing to different crowds, and marketing yourself as a comic.
