If you remember some of Cincinnati's early comedy clubs like D.W. Eye, Giggles, or Aunt Maudie's, you may have seen comedians Michael Flannery or Alex Bernstein on stage.

John Kiesewetter has Alex Bernstein on the phone and Michael Flannery in the studio to talk about those clubs, some of the comedians they've met and worked with, and Alex's latest book, Plrknib, about his search for the perfect joke.

John Kiesewetter joined the WVXU news team as a TV/Media blogger on July 1 2015, after nearly 30 years covering local and national broadcasting for The Cincinnati Enquirer. He’ll be posting news about Greater Cincinnati TV, radio and movies; updating your favorite former local TV/radio personalities or stars who grew up here; and breaking news about national TV, radio and media trends. You’ll also learn about Cincinnati’s rich broadcasting history.
