This week, Ira Sternberg spoke with comedians Maddog Mattern and Shuli Egar.
Shuli Egar and Maddog Mattern (right) will be performing in Downtown Las Vegas at the Backstage Bar and Billiards, Saturday, August 24th at 9 p.m. See link below for ticket information.
Maddog, before he started headlining New York’s best comedy clubs, touring the country with the One Mic Comedy Tour and the Ronnie Mund Block Party, and appearing on a weekly sports argument show on MSG called “The Bracket,” was a young comedian trying to get Las Vegas barflies to listen to him.
Shuli, born and raised in the Los Angeles valley, made a minor pit stop in Arizona before packing his things and heading to Las Vegas to begin his comedy crash course.
It was his drive to learn performing and his joining the Howard Stern show, first as a caller, than as a staffer, that set Shuli on a comedy career course.
