Ask a Professional Comedian: Jonah Ray
checkingtheinsanity asked you:Jonah, should I stay home and watch your special? Or see Hardwick tonight? I have tickets for Hardwick, but I want to support you too!!! Answer truthfully! 
DVR my special so you can come back home after seeing Chris and drunkenly watch me as you fall asleep!
Anonymous asked you:What’s your favorite opener you’ve ever used on stage?
A belt buckle bottle opener. 
sethdreyers asked you:Give your best argument re: waffles v. pancakes. 
Waffles provide “Flavor Buckets” for the butter and syrup. But! Nothing like a hotcake. It’s best to make a pancake then put it into a waffle maker. But then…by doing that, you’ll upset the breakfast gods.
Anonymous asked you:Jonah, how does it feel to have to live in two worlds so to speak. One where you are the drinking party-goer, and one where you are a nerd among nerds on the podcast. 
Some of the biggest nerds I know are drinking party-goers, and some of the biggest “drinking party-goers” I know are huge nerds. Nobody is ever one thing.
exbestfriend asked you:Jonah Ray … Other than the band fun., what is the one part of current pop culture you would like to get rid of? 
Reality shows that showcase and “celebrate” mentally challenged trainwrecks. 
Anonymous asked you:Licorice body butter, am I right? 
you are wrong… so very, very wrong. 
fangirlyconfessions asked you:What is the best thing about being a hipster? 
What’s a hipster? Like a jazz man playing bongos and wearing a turtleneck? PLEASE ADVISE. 
stardustmansion asked you:To Jonah, what was it like writing for the Andy Milonakis Show? Also Nerdist listener without the anonymous.
The best part about writing on the Andy Milonakis Show was hanging around all the maniacs that live in the lower east side of NYC. Also, it was a treat to learn from a great sketch writer like Eric Appel. 
Anonymous asked you:are you a-okay or is that just hearsay?
According to Annie Hardy from GIANT DRAG I am “A-Okay”. 
charlieshulman asked you:Hey Jonah. I’m a big fan of the Nerdist, JonahRadyio, and the Bing commercials. What are you most excited about in this Comedy Central Half-Hour episode?
You are a fan of the Bing Commercials? 
Anonymous asked you:Hey Jonah, Who was your first friend in comedy?
His name is Cash Hartzell #NEILEDIT 
Anonymous asked you:When are we gonna do a comedy in-store show at Burger Records. You headline, I’ll feature. I know the guys. Lets do this. -mike morales
Burger Records is an amazing record label/store in Fullerton. I would do a show any time there. As long as LEE NOISE is there. #TheeMakeOutParty 
Anonymous asked you:Minor threat or Fugazi?? 
Embrace
