Veteran comedian Wayne Federman and his fellow student Andrew Steven host a rare live recording of their critically-acclaimed podcast, The History of StandUp. Federman (also an adjunct professor at USC) has spent his adult life practicing and studying the art of stand-up comedy. Utilizing rare short audio clips and interviews the two hosts weave together the fascinating and hilarious journey of comics from vaudeville to Netflix. The History of StandUp Podcast has been featured in The NY Times, Forbes Magazine, The A.V Club, Interrobang, Geekiverse, and Paste. Jesse Fox, Vulture Magazine's senior editor, stated: "Wayne Federman knows more about the history of comedy than anyone I’ve ever spoken to.” @Federman @AndrewSteven
