Finally, a beautiful story of hope and humanity from the late Mike DeStefano, recorded around the holidays in 2010.

It’s a killer Live WTF from Los Angeles unlike any other Live WTF, mostly because this one has Moby in it. Not to be upstaged by a Grammy winner, TJ Miller, Aries Spears, Dave Hill, Jake Fogelnest, Mike Bobbitt and Jim Earl bring the goods. And, as always, Marc brings the tension. This episode is sponsored by LegalZoom and Comedy Central.

From the “Best of WTF Vol. 1” album available only to Super Premium WTF Donators, this is a candid look at one of WTFs regulars, Jim Earl.

As the year comes to an end, WTF brings the house down with another live show at the UCB Theare in Los Angeles. Erin Foley comes clean about coming out, Jon Daly introduces us to Bill Cosby-Bukowski, Jim Earl shares his Cafe Diaries, and Eddie Pepitone has the last word, but not before Dr. Steve tries to help him solve some issues.
Get ready for a whole lot of weirdness. Bizarro comedy legend Charles Fleischer (he of Roger Rabbit fame) stops by for one of the strangest appearances ever on WTF. Plus, Australian warmth from Brendon Burns, hilarious passive aggression from Andrew Daly, and remembrances for the dearly departed from Jim Earl round out this live show at UCB LA.
Marc’s back at the UCB Theatre in L.A. to welcome one of the founding members of the UCB, Matt Besser, as well as veteran comic Ed Crasnick. Plus, as usual, Jim Earl and Eddie Pepitone will stop by. And Marc holds out hope that Craig Robinson will show up as planned. (SPOILER ALERT: He won’t.)
The fireworks fly at the UCB Theater in Los Angeles. The calming Canadian presence of comedian Jon Dore has little effect on explosiveness on display when Marc and guest Greg Fitzsimmons go at each other. The only thing to mitigate it is a bout of dark insanity from Jim Earl and a dose of righteous anger from Eddie Pepitone. Taped 3/19/10.
Back at the UCB Theatre in Los Angeles, Marc brings out the big guns for a special holiday show. Sarah Silverman will serenade you, Paul F.

Maria Bamford! Chris Hardwick! Whitney Cummings! Doug Benson! Jim Earl! Eddie Pepitone! It’s a show so big, only the stage of the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles could contain it. Which is weird because it’s not a very big stage. Taped in front of a live audience on Nov. 15, 2009.
Live taping from the UCB Theater in Los Angeles (10/16/09). Featuring podcast/public radio wunderkind Jesse Thorn; comedians Dave Anthony, Greg Behrendt, and Craig Anton; long-form improv with Jim Earl; and a moment of uplift with Eddie Pepitone. You can’t handle 15.
E! What the f#@! is E!???? Marc finds the answer to that question in the most embarrassing way possible. Good thing he gets to cheer himself up with a call to his old friend and co-host, Jim Earl. Plus, some movie talk about Inglorious Basterds and The Hurt Locker. It’s Episode 2 - Just like Episode 1, only second.
