Dying, as they saying goes, is easy – comedy is hard.
This installment of AudioFiles looks at folks who make the hard work of getting laughs look easy.
We visit Brooklyn’s Punderdome competition, where the pun is mightier than the sword. Our guests include Vine comedy stars Stacey Nightmare, Tony Oswald and Anthony Ciolino. The bawdy duo The Reformed Whores also join us for a live set in the studio.

It’s where the heart is. There’s no place like it. They have to take you in.
This episode of AudioFiles brings us stories of homes – the ones we leave behind, hope to find, and even the ones we never wanted. We look at all the different sounds, spots and people that can take you home again. We hear from a refugee community in Atlanta, the makers of a webisode in the depths of New Jersey and visit the African Day Parade in Harlem. Also: singer-songwriter Amy Regan joins us for a live set in the studio.
