On this episode of The AUXORO Podcast, Derek Gaines and Zach chat about the set on shrooms that changed the way Derek thought about comedy, words of wisdom from the late legend Patrice O'Neal, situations with hecklers that have turned violent and how comedians have reacted, the way short form video (IG Reels, TikTok, Shorts) has changed the timing and approach of stand up comedians, the meaning behind Derek's 'Stage God' tattoo, and more.
