Tom Sobel has been putting comedians (and musicians) on the road for decades. On today's episode he slaps me in the face with some perspective. It was great.

Sean Patton (Conan, Comedy Central Presents) and I discuss Obsession, Compulsion, Animal behavior, Self-Diagnosis and Racism. It's Grrrrrreacist. Which is to say, it's great and about racism, not great and racist. I know, it's confusing.
Also, OCD looks like a few disorganized letters from the word Comedy, which is probably more annoying if you have OCD.
