Marc considers Allan Havey to be one of the great club comics in America. Maybe that’s why he was so intimidated by Allan when they used to cross paths in the 80s and 90s. Allan sits down with Marc to talk about some of the other paths he crossed - JFK, Ted Bundy, mobsters - before finding success as a talk show host at the dawn of Comedy Central and becoming a stand-up with a lasting influence on many of today’s comics.
