“Life is a tragedy when seen in close up, but a comedy in long shot.”
Each week, comedians Sean Conroy, Jamie Flam, Amber Kenny, and Joe Wagner live this quote from Charlie Chapman. Together, they discuss their struggles and the general terror of everyday life… it’s a comedy podcast.
The Long Shot is a comedy podcast but it’s also, in no small part, about four engaging souls trying to figure out their personal and professional lives, and where they belong in the crazy-making world of show-business. It’s about comedy but more importantly it’s about people…
