Everybody seems pretty eager to forget that at one point 21 years ago, there was a concerted effort to call sleeping with other people “Humpin’ Around.”

Before You Were Funny Episode 22 - Scott Chernoff, Eric Martin

Hey hey, I guest on this show along with Conan writer Scott Chernoff! Listen here to the sketch that DIDN’T QUITE get me into Thousand Oaks, CA’s premiere (and probably only) comedy group back in 1999. Justin Michael and Jacob Reed reveal their would-be Channel 101 past, and Scott channels Bob Dole’s ‘96 campaign. It’s a powerful hour of audio. I produce this show, and was thrilled that they asked me to get behind a mic - check it out!
