Marc's talking with a San Francisco comic from the '80s who pioneered a stream-of-consciousness style of stand-up, survived a nasty drug habit, and emerged with his life in perspective. No, not Robin Williams. It's Steven Pearl, who is, in fact, one-of-a-kind.

    Great interview with a brilliant comic mind, but that comment by Stan, ugh, what an asshole!

    I\'m sorry. But Pearl, ugh, what a hack!

    Wow, I really struggled to keep up with the guest in this episode - \"a wit that goes 1000 miles a minute\" is damn spot on. Marc virtually can\'t get anything in, but still yet another highly enjoyable episode of WTF Podcast.

    Whew, I need a breather from the Pearl Storm. Ok, I\'m good now. I hope there\'s a live show episode on the horizon - as I\'ve been missing them dearly.

    DAMN! Steve Pearl has the fastest wit I have ever heard. 1000 miles a minute. Awesome.

    Regarding the boots I\'ve had similar buyer\'s remorse experiences sometimes. I try to chalk it up to life teaching me that I can\'t find happiness in an attachment (in this case to a brand that seems reliable, or on a more abstract level, to a judgment that I\'ve made and felt good about). River, twice, stepping in, see.

    Also, if perspective offers any help, after reading in Bill Mauldin\'s autobiography about GIs slogging through oily mud in Italy until their feet became gangrenous I find it hard to complain too much about my shoes rubbing or my socks getting a little damp.

    Great one! I used to listen to Pearl on the Alex Bennett morning shows out of San Francisco (on KMEL, KQKE and Live105) - Bob Rubin, Bobcat, Warren, Tom Kenney, and everybody else - that was great radio! I lived too far out in the suburbs to be going to the SF clubs much, but I did get to some of the shows - even in the \\\"Live Studio Audience\\\" a few times!
    I always wondered how you all could all be so funny so early in the morning - guess it was because you stayed up all night?

    Good interview...of course, rock and roll WASN\'T just R&B played by white boys, but R&B and country music and urban pop all mixing together, which is where Jerry Lee and Roy and Johnny and Buddy And Wanda (Jackso, that is) and all came out of, and why they were there.

    The Who were had had a few hits in the States, but not up to the Doors level during that pre-TOMMY (better) period.

    The Beatles, having been eclectic from before the Cavern, just got moreso, and could afford all the studio musicians and time they wanted.

    Wow, that was as good or better than the great Robin Williams one (I love Steven\\\'s rapid style & also I\\\'ve been selling records & cd\\\'s for a living for the past 25 years so to hear his past concerts he went to was amazing, but that was just icing on the cake). I have never heard of him but he is one of the top 10 you have had on here for my personal comedy taste, I wonder what the other WTF\\\'ers will think?
