Perhaps the nearest the USA has to a true “comedian’s comedian”, Andy Kindler has been railing at audiences (and his own supposed lack of performance ability) for nearly 30 years. A regular at the “Just For Laughs” Comedy Festival in Montreal, where he annually gives his scathing “State of the Industry Address”, Andy occupies a unique and hilarious position as the industry’s conscience. We discuss identifying and overcoming the many formulae of comedy detailed in his “Hack’s Handbook”, why he’s mad at Jerry Seinfeld; as well as exploring the lingering fear of abandonment that drives a comic to be “always on”… Support the podcast by pressing “donate” atwww.comedianscomedian.com, and see the show live at
