This week I'm joined by my friend Brian Ariotti to discuss the intersection between the art of comedy and the art of professional wrestling.

In addition to sharing stories about working at Ringside Collectibles, Brian talks about his top five favorite wrestlers (which includes The Boogie Man), how he feels about maturing into adulthood, and he shares some useful insights on how to avoid becoming jaded and how "life experience" can positively affect the way we consume art.

This is fun, laughter-filled philosophical conversation that not only points out the similarities between comedy and wrestling, but how comedy can thrive in pro-wrestling. Brian's reaction to The New Day is a testament to that, as he becomes an instant fan of theirs upon seeing their "Country Music Sucks" promo for the first time.

I managed to get this picture while he was seeing The New Day's entrance for the first time.

This is a nice change of pace for the podcast that's sure to leave a smile on your face.

In the close you'll also find out more details about my plans for future articles on The Work of Wrestling podcast now that The Raw Review has ended.
