Dallas Comedy House Mentioned on This American Life

This American LifeShout out to This American Life for a shout out to the Dallas Comedy House (DCH). The mention comes by way of a story from Joel Lovell about Chris Gethard's new podcast, Beautiful Stories by Anonymous People. So, a shout out to Gethard, too. Gethard talks with strangers on his podcast for an hour about anything they want to talk about. In the episode featured on This American Life, a caller living in Denton says he wants to perform stand-up at DCH. The caller feels that his life is going nowhere and that he needs to do things to feel more alive. The mention happens around the 44:54 mark in the show. Here's the transcript:

Caller: [SCREAMS] Yeah. I'm 10 minutes away from Dallas Comedy House.

Chris Gethard: You're killing me. Do they have open mics there?

Caller: Yeah. Open mics. I've known for months. Open Mics Tuesday. I've got something ready.

Chris Gethard: You've got an act? You've got an act you want to try?

Caller: Yeah.

Chris Gethard: You're doing it tomorrow.

Caller: Yeah.

Chris Gethard: You're doing it tomorrow. What time is the open mic?

Caller: I think it's at 7:00 or 8:00.

Chris Gethard: You're doing it tomorrow.

Caller: Yeah.

Chris Gethard: You're going to do it. And here's what's going to happen, is you're going to go and it's going to go terrible. It's your first open mic. It's going to go awful. It's not going to be fun. You're not going to be funny and it's going to feel really uncomfortable. But you're gonna feel [BLEEP] alive, man.
