Chet Wild has only been in the comedy game for five years, but in that time he's made extraordinary career strides. In his native upstate New York he was often MC at Buffalo comedy clubs, and became a frequent fill-in co-host on a legendary Rochester morning radio show, all while earning a Master's degree. Now in Los Angeles, he's trained in improv and sketch writing with top comedy troupes and performs before bona fide stars in clubs around L.A. He may currently best be known as co-host of The Dunk Tank podcast with former American Idol host, Brian Dunkleman.

Art catches up with Chet while the comic is in Atlanta for the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival. The interview takes place at the luxurious W Hotel in Midtown.

Then, stay tuned to find out why this episode was the most expensive to produce yet! 47 minutes.

Art's comments: "This is definitely one of our best shows to date. As a Holiday Inn Express/Toyota Carolla kind of guy I felt a bit intimidated by the W and the line of Lexuses and Porsches in the driveway, but had a blast with Chet Wild. To say this guy will be a big success may be stating the obvious. Also, stick around for a tale from my George Costanza-ish existence."

I personally have been delighted to see Chet Wild's getting on his feet in stand-up comedy. I believe it all started when he played drums with the Alfred University Pep Band. The AU Pep Band is known for its ridiculous running commentary during Saxon football games and Chet was certainly a part of the fun. All the best to Chet!
