Jay Mohr joined the show this morning to talk about his show in Milwaukee on Friday, August 16th at the Pabst Theatre. For more information go to http://www.thebig1070.com/event_portal/view/calendar/event.html?event_id=305932
On how his comedy has developed:
Its a lot more story telling, impressions, and a lot more goofing off. In a good way though. Its real free flowing. I'll tell you one thing. If you come to the Pabst Theatre August 16th and you don't put this in your top two comedy shows you've ever seen, I'll hand you your money back on the spot.
On his show:
I do probably about 60 shows a year. Doors open at 7:00. I'll go for about an hour and a half to two hours. This is not a joke. Buzz Williams, Marquette Golden Eagle head coach, is my opening act. It is not a joke. You can tweet him yourself.
On Manziel vs. McCarron:
I take Johnny Football. Its easy. He went to Alabama and beat Alabama and AJ McCarron in his house. I think he can sling it, I can run more plays with him, I can roll him out a lot more, and I don't have to worry about him being a sitting duck if the pocket collapses.
