5 Words with Sean Patton

They say that all great stories can be boiled down into just five words. Who are they? They are Sean Patton, host of the podcast 5 Words. And obviously, he is out of his mind. Each week your host challenges his guests to tell a story in just five words, and from which, ridiculicity ensues. Is ridiculicity a word? It is now, and it would be one of the many words we’d use to describe 5 Words with Sean Patton.

    76 - Ali Clayton

    WARNING: Discussions of suicide. Holy cannoli, this week’s episode is a barn burner! I met our guest a decade ago at the Nutt StreetComedy Club (now called Dead Crow Comedy Club) in Wilmington, NC. We’ve gotten bender-level drunk in every timezone in North America since, and now she’s sober and living it up as one of the funniest comedians in the country that you haven’t heard of yet. It’s Ali Clayton! From the hills of North Carolina to the streets of Chicago and the boroughs of NYC, Ali has been on quite a journey. We dig deep in this episode: Ali got through a very dark time and is in a much better place now. We are very happy to still have her voice in the world. Here are five words to describe this episode: don’t trust your dad’s girlfriend.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    75 - Myq Kaplan

    What an episode we got for you right here! A wise man once said “It’s not about arriving at the destination, but experiencing the journey.” and this episode is the epitome of such wise words. My guest? Myq Kaplan! He’s been everywhere comedians can be, and he just dropped another album called “AKA” (get it here http://myqkaplan.com/buy/). Myq and I talk about everything from the NYC comedy scene back in 2010 to how you can get good at taking ayahuasca. From dealing with hecklers to getting to know your shaman, this episode is a wonderful journey, and we arrive at a destination that Myq is quite the hilarious comedian.

    73 - Sam Tallent

    Good day, dear legends! We’re sure many of you have thought, “This podcast is not only great, but also really appreciates the art of storytelling. I wonder when they’ll have another published author as a guest…” And the answer to that is RIGHT NOW! This week’s guest is the spectacular Sam Tallent. Sam is not only a force of nature onstage, he is also the author of the novel Running the Light. It is an awe-inspiring piece of literary masterwork. Here’s what Doug Stanhope, the jedi road warrior himself, has to say about it: “had to stop so many times to read passages aloud to people that I feel like I'm doing theAudible version. Brilliant writing. Astounding.” It’s amazing from start to finish, and you can buy it at www.samtallent.com (do this instead of going to Amazonk, this way Sam makes more money and Jeff Bezos makes less).You know what else is also great from start to finish? This episode! Give it a listen! Here are five words to describe it: your mom can throw hands.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Hello there, Legends, let’s dive right on in! This week our guest has achieved a feat very few people have, and pretty much no other comedian has: she swam on the US National Swim Team. Twice. And now she’s a comedian living in NYC! It’s Laura Sogar! We talk all about her swimming career—which spanned 20 years—how she once trained with Michael Phelps, how Baywatch would’ve played out were it set in Rhode Island, and the most harsh “Welcome to New York!” moment of her life.

Aside from his hour special on Showtime (which is a hilarious special), you’ve seen him on Netflix’s Disjointed, Fam on CBS, and have heard him on Bojack Horseman.

When people think about great comedy clubs, they rarely ever think about the people behind the scenes keeping it all running and preventing the liquor license from being revoked.
