What's Up Fool? Podcast
All Things Comedy | Wondery

Comedian Felipe Esparza talks with random people he finds interesting. It might be somebody kind of famous or it might be that homeless guy at the end of your street who you walk past every day without saying hello. Everyone has a story to tell about how they got where they are, no matter who they are.

Our pre-Thanksgiving episode with a few old friends - Adam Murray (currently in the brand new movie "Hillbilly Elegy"), Momo Rodriguez (talking about some secret project he's filming) and Martin Moreno (talking about the new Slautter before Slaughter album coming soon).
