Sad Stories Told for Laughs: Dave Barnes

This week on The Habit Podcast, Jonathan Rogers interviews Dave Barnes, singer-songwriter, standup comedian, and cohost of the Dadville Podcast.

This episode, the 2021 finale of the Sad Stories Told for Laughs series, was originally released in video form as part of the Rabbit Room’s online conference, Hutchmoot: Homebound. In this episode, Dave talks about awkward radio promotions, disastrous shows, and doing standup comedy for patrons who thought they had come to hear music.
