Jake Johannsen is such a great comic. You’ve seen him. I know you have. He’s been on Letterman 42x. And he is a New Orleans Jazz Fest Dork. VERY Specific. Very fun… and, at one point, kinda emo. Tune in; love it and him.

DONATE folks… I’m working over here. or (Show schedule, t-shirts, and standup CDs too). is the umbrella podcast host. If you go there… you can find a lot of OTHER great pods.

Another way to support the show is to shop at THROUGH my website. So… go to and click on the “support the show, shop amazon” banner. You are brought to Amazon to shop like NORMAL and it’s all the same except that I get some sort of kickback from Amazon. Bookmark it. What the heck. Costs you nothing and supports the show. Thanks!

Comments and talk about the show is best done, at this time, on the Ranger page on FB if you want to talk to other Rangers.
