Episode 505 - Billy Wayne Davis

Comedian Billy Wayne Davis is in the garage to enlighten Marc on how the culture of the South closely alligns with the culture of standup comics.

Makin’ comments ‘bout how all them womenfolk are so manipulative because that’s just how they are. - If his comments regarding women are any indication of how he talks about race I could see how he might get the side eye from quite a few people when the subject comes up. http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/95/75/4d/95754df9b5958c18ea2d3a757e4acaa4.jpg

I grew up with girlsand I had the same experience. They use to get me in trouble and lie and then pretend like they were innocent. I don’t think all women are like that and I don’t think that most people think that all women are manipulative. Billy was just speaking from his experience. I’m sure that some women think that men are dogs but I wouldn’t get upset about it. It doesn’t speak for every man.  Overall, It was a great interview!

Dude is a relatively unknown comic with…. a toddler?
No offense to him because I liked him, but he might as well just strap a 30 pound weight on his back then jump into the deep end of a swimming pool.

^ not urging suicide… just making a metaphor

god, that was boring.

I liked Billy Wayne Davis.  Okay, I don’t agree with his views on women but I’m not all that smitten with men either so he’s entitled to his opinion.  And he’s funny and seems to learn from his mistakes.  I’d like to see him on stage.  Thanks for a fun interview, Marc!

women manipulate, out of their need for survival in a dangerous BS world. it’s not of necessity a judgment,it’s a reality. if we can’t understand that,then we’re in 1950’s TV land world. if you want PC self contained men,then you are going to get the same shit you’ve always gotten;the faux feminist, self serving sycophant male whore,who goes along to get along, to “get over”.

Smitty June 15, 2014 at 1:21 am


Marc: it’s a poverty/racial problem;there is no fucking either or.

Smitty June 15, 2014 at 1:30 am


Valley Cat-  you’re short sighted, foolish, and don’t seem to understand gender psychology.

Jordan June 15, 2014 at 9:12 am


After so many great interviews, that was one of the most boring.  The guy was so damn flat.  Even Marc seemed lost on how to pump it up.

Smitty June 15, 2014 at 11:42 am


forgive my over posting [or not], but i’m 45 minutes into this,and i think this is a great slice of life nuanced interview. i find this guy honest and really accessible. he’s not giving a performance when he talks,and his tonality might be a bit monotone;but good god, he’s a southerner with a different wrinkle from the other Dixie dudes that Marc has had on. i find him quite compelling.  perhaps, we Northeners should get our heads out of our assoholes, and appreciate a different life rhythm,a different communication style.

Oh geez. Here we go again. Michael Gowdy, a completely unknown, self-promoting hack comic coming on the board telling someone to kill themselves.

I knew his remarks on women would get some peoples’ dander up. Because, as we all know, women are perfect and men are jerks. That’s the official p.c. ideology of this day and age.

Joe Tily June 16, 2014 at 8:10 am


I had no idea who this guy was, but that did’nt stop me enjoying the episode.  The stuff about comedy clubs and Mitch Hedberg was really interesting.  I love it when Marc talks shop with other comedians . . .

Can anyone explain the difference between a manager and an agent?

As a child of the South let me say that was a fantastic interview. I didn’t know who Billy Wayne Davis was before this, but I’m a fan now.

Also Marc, South of the Mason-Dixon high school & college football is a religion. That is not an exaggeration. The local high school/college football head coach is Jesus (or Satan depending on their won/loss record). Billy Wayne mentioned the “murder” of the sacred Auburn Tiger trees by a “misguided” Bama fan. That story is well worth your time to look up online. I think Esquire did a story on it. An amazing true crime tale of deranged fandom.

Thanks for the interview!

It’s called a joke, women.
