Ep 61 - Rick Overton is Here to Teach and Help!

Rick Overton is a comic I’ve looked up to for a long time. He’s hilarious, he has an amazing perspective born of a long and storied career, and he’s optimistic. The last part of that fascinates me, because it’s something I’ve been grappling with a lot lately. Everything around us, news-wise, seems to veer towards being a shitshow, and it’s hard to hold on to hope. Before I had Rick on, I was reminded of a bit he had about laughing in the face of death. Doing that, he asserted, robs death and darkness of their power. Looking back, it wasn’t even a bit as much as him making a point before he started his jokes. Anyway, it stuck with me. It was a blast to have Rick on, and our conversation veered hilariously all over the place. I was in a rental house in Provincetown holed up in the bathroom recording this episode. Listen and find out why! THE CALLS: 1) A guy who lost his father says his wife wants him to move to another state so she can be closer to her best friend. The problem? Neither of them have any other friends or contacts there. WORTH IT? 2) A young fella can’t imagine going out without ketomine in his system. Is there a way to get rid of THE URGE? 3) A lady asks, HOW DO YOU STAY MOTIVATED DOING SIMPLE TASKS? 4) A guy asks, IS IT OKAY FOR A GROWN WOMAN TO BELIEVE IN SANTA CLAUS? Ooooooooooooookaaaaaaaaaay.
