You may or may not know his name or recognize his face, but if you're a fan of comedy you definitely know his work.

Neal Brennan found immense success in his 20s by co-creating Chappelle's Show and writing the movie Half Baked (1998) with fellow comedian Dave Chappelle. He's largely been behind-the-scenes as a writer and director in the intervening years, but more recently Brennan has been getting on stage as a stand-up comedian. He joins Stretch and Bob for a conversation about his days as a comedy club doorman in New York, why he's not concerned with PC culture and what to expect from his stand-up tour "Here We Go."
