Comedy & Authenticity with Zane Lamprey, Part 1-Ep.17

The show gets off to a rough but hilarious start. Zane explains how he balances being a TV show host for Thee Sheets and Four Sheets, the head of an environmentally friendly clothing company, and getting ready for a nationwide stand-up comedy tour. Zane goes deep about how to stay real without coming on too strong with your personal beliefs (except that if you hate trees, Zane thinks you should go to hell right now). Chris tells Zane he refers to him as the "Anthony Bourdain of Drinking," and Zane shares how he approves and how Bourdain was a mentor to him, along with a few stories. The two and Zane talk about authenticity and its importance in all of Zane's endeavors. This leads to Zane talking about his preparations for his comedy performance and some lousy advice he got along the way. Jason gives Zane a "great" grade for his episode of Chug in Sydney because he gets to real Aussies and maybe taught them a thing or two. Then the three get into the inevitable discussion of the cultural difference between Americans and Australians. ...
