Anthony Griffin puts marriage in perspective. Brian Holtzman tells everyone to get real. Chris D'Elia reveals his ideal superpower. And Eddie Ifft ponders the proliferation of Starbucks, and more.
Eddie Ifft always knew that his antics in school would pay off someday. If only his parents and teachers knew what the future held. After a brief stint in politics interning for a Senator in Washington DC, Eddie quickly realized that politics was way too serious for him. One random night when he gave stand-up comedy a try at an open-mike night at a Pittsburgh comedy club. Once the spotlight was on him, he knew that was the place for him.
Eddie Ifft has been both pissing people off and making people laugh his whole life. After a string of dead-end jobs, including being "asked to leave" his father's own insurance company, it was only then did Ifft step onto the stage at an open mic night in his hometown of Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, to see what "two double gin and tonics…a lot of childhood insecurity" and his gift-of-the-controversial gab could do.
