Good One: A Podcast About Jokes

Good One: A Podcast About Jokes is a podcast about - well - jokes, and the people who tell them. Each week, a comedian will play one of their jokes and then break it down with Senior Editor Jesse David Fox.


episode 85: Jo Firestone’s Seniors Comedy Class

On this week's brand new episode of Good One, host Jesse David Fox sits down with comedian and TV writer Jo Firestone!

Jo is a comedian whose work can be seen on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Joe Pera Talks With You, High Maintenance, Shrill, and more. She can be heard on Maximum Fun’s Dr. Gameshow, a podcast she co-hosts with Manolo Moreno and Comedy Central’s “Everyday Decisions,” a podcast she hosts all alone. Her album, "The Hits" is available on Comedy Central Records, and she co-hosts the weekly comedy show Butterboy at Littlefield in Brooklyn every Monday night.

Today, she's speaking to Jesse about her newest special, Good Timing With Jo Firestone; part documentary, the special follows Jo's weekly class at the Greenwich House Senior Center where she teaches comedy to a group of seniors who prove to be more provocative, political and unfiltered on-stage than off.

Watch Good Timing on Peacock starting October 15. Find Jo’s podcasts Dr. Gameshow and Everyday Decisions wherever podcasts are found. Follow Jo on instagram. Follow Jesse David Fox on Twitter and Instagram.
