POD Exclusive Interview: Mike Burns Talks About Alter Ego “@DadBoner”

posted by Oscar June 21, 2013

During last week’s Just For Laughs festival here in Chicago, we were lucky enough to meet up with comedian Mike Burns, creator of the hilarious @DadBoner twitter account and the Karl Welzein character behind it. We saw his @DadBoner and Friends, You Guys show as well as his reading of his awesome piece about Guy Fieri for the Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction, which he won of course. This guy is definitely someone to see if he’s performing at venue near you. See our exclusive interview with him (not bad for a last-minute effort) above.

Make sure to pick up his book “Power Moves: Livin’ the American Dream, USA Style,” starting July 9. Pre-orders are available now.
