Stand Down

Dan Telfer somehow fares worse than a mime-and-clarinetist duo

What's a recipe for disaster? Indian casinos, a mime, and his wife who accompanies him on clarinet. Also, crossbows. 

About This Episode

Back when we first conceived of the idea for Stand Down, we called in our comedian pal Dan Telfer to do a pilot. Telfer, who's toured with the likes of Patton Oswalt, Maria Bamford, and Brian Posehn, had a variety of tales of gigs gone awry to share. Just the setup of this one portends rough times ahead: Indian casinos. A mime. The mime's clarinetist wife, who accompanied him on stage. That doesn't even include the crossbows.

Check out Dan's fantastic new album for AST Records, Tendrils Of Ruin.

Next week: Stand Down concludes with Natasha Leggero and Jell-O wrestling at a Christian college.
