This week I continue to showcase everyone's favorite emotion of desperation! My guest is iron man of comedy slash co-owner of the Idiot Box Comedy Club Steve Lesser. We talk about his perceived nice guy demeanor and the 90s cartoon show "The Tick" then jump into a super hero epic! (which just happens to be an EXTREMELY marketable genre)
