Steve Cooper talks with comic Ritch Shydner. Ritch made numerous appearances on TV in the 80s, including Late Night with David Letterman and The Tonight Show with both Johnny Carson and Jay Leno and he did an HBO half-hour special, One Night Stand.

He wrote material for Jeff Foxworthy’s Grammy nominated comedy albums, Totally Committed and Big Fun and he has written for Ron White and Jay Leno. In 2006 he was co-author of a book on stand-up, I Killed and in 2010 he produced and performed in an award winning documentary on the world of stand-up comedy, I Am Comic. Currently he is writing a movie adaptation for HBO of Bill Maher's book, True Story and performing around the world.
