Ever since I saw Henry Rollins give a spoken word performance in the mid-1990s, I’ve been a huge fan of his many talents. He walked out onto the stage with carrots shoved into his nostrils. I’m a sucker for a good sight gag, okay?
He’s truly a seeker and traveler of the world, and goes to many countries alone that most Americans and Westerners will never see. He’s also funny, interesting, introspective, and unnervingly polite. Pair him with the gruff, hurricane force comedian that is Joey Diaz, and it’s an hour-plus of pure podcasting delight. Check it here on Diaz’s Church of What’s Happening Now podcast.
