On the 15th episode of "Too Long; Didn't Listen," comedians Rachel Feinstein and Nate Bargatze discuss their latest stand-up endeavors and everything from creepy memories about the Easter Bunny to dreams of being a criminal profiler.
Feinstein has a new stand-up album coming out this year, is currently producing a pilot for Comedy Central with Amy Schumer and will make a cameo in the movie "Trainwreck" this summer. And to think, all this after shirking college as a teenager to move to New York City with a band called Dicksister and getting fired from her first job "On Broadway" (at a store called Phat) after just four hours.
Bargatze's new one-hour special, "Full Time Magic," is premiering on Comedy Central on Friday, May 2, at midnight, the title of which is a nod to his father, who is actually a magician.
