Episode 43: David Huntsberger, Part One

David Huntsberger is a unique voice in stand-up comedy. Drawing on his deep curiosity about science, technology, philosophy, and many topics in between, his comedy is intellectual, pointed, and self aware. This curiosity and openness has led to a number of interesting collaborations, including his latest film One Headed Beast and a monthly variety show he hosts in LA called The Junk Show.

A touring standup comedian, he has also appeared on major television networks including NBC, Comedy Central, and the SyFy Network. He has released several albums of standup comedy. The most recent, Explosion Land, debuted in the Top 15 at iTunes.

He was co-creator of the popular Professor Blastoff podcast (which is also my favorite podcast of all time!). Make sure to check out his current weekly podcast, The Space Cave.

In the first part of our conversation, we chatted about his background, making a career in comedy, and about his creative process.
