If it seems like nearly every comedian has his or her own podcast, it's because nearly all of them do. Podcasts are easy to produce, provide content freedom and can be consumed the way we like everything to be these days: on demand. Plus, it just makes good business sense for comedians. It helps increase public awareness, puts butts in the seats at live shows and brings in some ad revenue, which doesn't hurt.
When they're gracing the stages of clubs and theaters across the country, most comedians are at their best when they're able to just riff conversationally in front of a microphone with their comedian friends.
Some cater to fans of improv, some attempt to dissect the mechanics and history of comedy and showbiz, while others are dedicated to simply letting conversation flow where it may. Regardless, here is a list of the best the comedy podcasting world has to offer.
Warning: Some of the clips on this list may contain some NSFW language.
