Listening to the my spot on Comics Talk Comedy, I noticed a few glaring mistakes in a few things I said. I wanted to correct them to straighten the record. I think it was the hangover, mixed with the nerves. I just wanted to make a few post edit corrections.
The book I had mentioned was the War of Art by Steven Pressfield, not the Art of War by some Laotian guy (What ocean?). A must read for those experiencing artistic resistance.
I said the Comedy Kumite Show was at Til Two when it is at The Kensington Club. My apologies to Gordon Downs, Robert Timothy and Damian Mercado for mixing that up.
I also made up a fun drinking game on this episode of Comics Talk Comedy. Every time I say “actually” or start a sentence or tangent with the word “no.”
Or at least corrections to things I had said. I was asked to name my favorite comics and mentioned, being a soccer fan, that I actually had a starting 11. I recounted as I listed them, that I only named ten comics. I had mentioned 1980′s Eddie Murphy earlier, but failed to mention him on the list. If you add Murphy to the lineup, you will have my starting 11.
In alphabetical order, the list of my main influences are Dave Attell, Bill Burr, George Carlin, Joey Diaz, Greg Giraldo, Bill Hicks, Jim Jefferies, Sam Kinison, Eddie Murphy, Patrice O’Neal, and Doug Stanhope.
“Great lineup… A lot of dark tragedy in that lineup,” said Jesse Egan. “You are a serious minded fellow Villarba.”
To that I replied, “That it is just the comedy that I gravitate to.”

I hope you enjoy the radio show. It definitely gives you a glimpse into the comedy act I am creating. Cheers!
Thank you very little,
