This week’s guest is Nick Youssef. Nick is a paid regular at The Comedy Store as well as one of the most stylish men in comedy. I’d known of Nick for a while and we’d followed each other on social media but had never met until the night I did my first stand up set. I took him out for lunch on New Year’s Day and we talked a lot about his choice to quit college and do stand up at the age of eighteen and the role The Comedy Store played in his development as comic. On the podcast we delve into the history of The Comedy Store and length and discuss how and why the dark castle has become such an iconic symbol to comedy nerds everywhere.
