JESSE THORN: It’s The Sound of Young America, I’m Jesse Thorn. My guest on the program is the comedian Greg Fitzsimmons. He’s not only one of the nation’s most popular standup comics, having appeared on basically all of the venues that are available to standup comedians, including multiple comedy central specials, almost all of the late night shows, and more; he also has his own talk radio program on Sirius XM Radio, the Greg Fitzsimmons show; his own podcast, FitzDogRadio, and he’s the author of the new memoir Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons: Tales of Redemption from an Irish Mailbox. It’s not just the story of his life told through his words, it’s also the story of his life as told through a giant pile of disappointing letters that his mother kept from his elementary school days all the way through his career as a standup comedian. Greg, welcome to The Sound of Young America.
