New York Comedy Scene

In this episode we welcome to the show New York based stand-up Shaun Eli.

Shaun tells us about the New York stand up scene both pre and post covid.  He also discusses writing for Jay Leno opening monologues back in the 90s, performing in 5 continents (not 7, yet), the ripeness of Netflix specials, auditioning for the first Last Comics Standing, Woke/Cancel Culture and his views on the Simpsons recasting.

We also consult with Shaun on his Irish sounding name, at least it is not Declan and you can find him on his website,

“Shaun writes the kind of smart comedy I like to use in my opening monologue.” – Jay Leno
