As I turned the corner, I noticed a lone man fidgeting with something under the text. As I got closer I realized that lone man was Shia LaBeouf himself. I asked how long he was going to be here and he said, “Until that motherfucker’s out of office.”

Driving across the country solo can be one of the loneliest parts of the life of a comedian, but the open road has recently become one of my favorite job perks. Letting the thoughts flow with the asphalt has the power to put me in the zen state I need for my creativity to come alive—and podcasts can really help.
