About the Show

Comedian Colby Smith can’t believe he’s this un-cool. This is a man who comes home and mutters “My dogs are barking” after most days at work. It’s too late for him.Luckily, his guests are among New York’s most interesting and innovative writers, comedians, artists and more — you know, the cool kids. Together they’ll take calls, share stories, and maybe give Colby some hope about one day entering the world of the relevant.
