The Crowd Work Special...

Came across this "Crowd Work" video from Andrew Schulz, It's a few months old but probably still better than 80% of Netflix comedy specials. If your a big comedy nerd - this guy should be on your radar for sure.

Meet Tony Baker!

Keep you eye out for him in your local comedy club, or subscribe to his YouTube channel - which has a ton of new content.
