  • These Things Matter - The Road

Comedian and musician Sam Tallent is a force of nature. He is a reluctant leader of men. He is a comedian who lives up to his surname. He is punk rock, through and through. All of these aspects contribute to him being one of the road doggiest road dogs you’ll ever know. Kevin and Taylor had a fantastic trip of a time hearing road stories, both comedic and musical.

If you are lucky enough to have Sam come to your town on one of his many trips across the country, don’t miss out. Whether he’s playing with his two-man punk band Red vs. Black, or part of his comedy troupe, The Fine Gentleman’s Club, or as a solo gentleman (check out his debut album here), he is not to be missed. You can also see him most Wednesdays at Too Much Fun above City ‘O City at the Deer Pile, on TFGC’s podcast, aptly called ‘Too Much Funcast’, and in this video clip of Sam with the awesome Chris Gethard.

  • These Things Matter - Ben Kronberg
  • These Things Matter - The Lovin' Spoonful

Oh, comedian and bon vivant Ben Kronberg. As Hunter S. Thompson once wrote: “There he goes. One of God’s own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.”

We talk to Ben about Summer songs. You know – “Summer in the City” by The Lovin’ Spoonful, “Hot Fun in the Summertime” by Sly & The Family Stone… and anything by Zeppelin, of course. Plus Ben tells lots of tales of New York City and ladies. Lots and lots of ladies.

If you want to know more about Ben, go to his website and check out his
web series, Ted & Gracie.
