Fish Out Of Water

Fish Out of Water is a comedy writing podcast hosted by Jeremiah Burton and Ryan Tweedy. Each week they have a new guest join them and talk about various types of comedy writing from television to the internet to live theater. It’s a podcast where comedians get to nerd out about writing comedy and talk about what makes them laugh.

    Joe Hartzler, the master of comedic suspense, joins us to talk about taking the audience on a laugh voyage, not just a laugh bus ride. Mr. Hartzler wants comedians to start using every part of the bit, not just the funny part. He helped us explore the nature of our comedy by showing us the many paint brushes that we have artists – not just the obvious ones.
    Joe has been a performer at UCB since 2007 and taught improv there for several years. He was a member of one of the first maude teams – Up Up Up. You may have also seen him helping sell xbox’s on your television, as well as all over youtube.com.
    Joe is a comedy genius and I don’t use that term lightly.
