Deep Night Season 10: Jim Tews

Dale sketches out a fine conversation with comedian and cat lover, Jim Tews. Dale and Jim discover they had similar upbringings full of flea markets, marching bands, and questionable parenting choices involving vans. The two take a Deep Night dive into the finer points of Jim’s summer gig as a caricature artist at a Pennsylvania theme park. They also discuss Jim’s time spent guarding the Northern Border in Cleveland and talk through a recent project involving the founder of MyPillow. Jim shares what it was like to compete on Last Comic Standing and how he turned a cat blog into a best seller. Over the course of the episode Dale suggests some essential truths about his guest and they end with some thoughts on meditation and keeping in shape. Plus Dale sails into some new scholarship with a recently revealed item about those new-age-loving Vikings.
