The first issue of “Fair Enough” is about Danny Lobell’s experiences growing up in an Orthodox Jewish yeshiva, drawing comic books, and eventually becoming friends with the late Harvey Pekar (“American Splendor”), who told him to start his own publication and follow his dreams. In the comic, you see Danny’s journey with his publication, The Comical, which eventually became one of the first comedy podcasts, Comical Radio, in 2004. On Comical Radio, Danny interviewed 1,000+ entertainers and comedians including George Carlin, Chris Rock, and Larry King.
A little about Danny: Last year, he received glowing reviews for his Edinburgh Fringe debut, “Broke As A Joke,” he’s been on This American Life, Ari Shaffir’s Skeptic Tank, WTF with Marc Maron, Dr. Drew, Fitzdog, Sirius XM, and The Artie Lange Show, and he gave a very popular TEDx talk about raising chickens in his Brooklyn backyard with his gangster neighbor.
He also runs “Modern Day Philosophers,” a podcast in which he discusses philosophy with comedians like Bill Burr, Maria Bamford, Aisha Tyler, Jackie Mason, Carl Reiner, Gilbert Gottfried, and Brian Regan.
