Patrick Ramirez, a Salt Lake City comic that moved to LA almost two years ago returned to do a couple of shows at Club at 50 West this past week. Jason was able to do a few shows with him, so they recorded this short episode of Stupid Questions.

He is one of the reasons that Stupid Questions is a podcast. So please sit back and enjoy this episode. They talk about Patrick’s move to LA and some of the best and worst places he has performed since moving.

If you have ever seen Marcus live you have seen someone who appears larger than life on stage!
His energy and his ability to make a show unique and personal to those attending, make him stand out to me as not only a funny comic, but a fun performer that can transform a night of laughs into something more memorable. Marcus is a powerhouse of a performer.
Marcus is sharp, fun, and always delivers! Go see him live, you won’t regret it. He is all of this and he is the guest on this episode of Stupid Questions.
Marcus and Jason talk about collecting toys/figures/collectables, Wiseguys Comedy Club, the successes Marcus has had over the years, and how he is still happy to be able to perform live comedy.
Marcus talks a lot of what happened behind the scenes the year he was a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. He talks about regrets, learning and growing as a comic/performer and about how important it is to live in the moment, feel it, and soaking it in.
Give this episode a listen, it is a great one. Then go get tickets to see Marcus live.
Emmett Montgomery is a beautiful man. He was kind enough to invite Jason into his brother’s home in Salt Lake City to record this episode Stupid Questions. Jason and Emmett talk about everything from stand-up comedy and producing shows to festivals and feminism. The sum of this conversation is that Emmett Montgomery is a beautiful man.
He proves to Jason that not only is he a giver of hope, but also can take that hope right away. Emmett has a heart of gold and it shows in this episode. Give it a listen and check out Emmett online or if he is every in your city don’t miss seeing his comedy. He is hilarious and has very unique voice in comedy.
Once again we have some great guests on the show, Stuart Thompson and Krystal “The Pistol” two comics in from LA stop by and get on the mics. In classic Stupid Questions form we start talking about a subject and it quickly turns into something else. We talk about how you shouldn’t get to know your neighbors anymore, but then it quickly changes to maybe we should all just talking with our neighbors. Knowing your neighbors is a good way to all be on the same page with social issues. Also in this episode Stuart give my apartment the best name ever, “Helter Shelter.” Check out this episode it was a lot of fun talking with Krystal and Stuart.
