There are many comedy podcasts out there, but if you are a student of comedy and want useful, actionable writing insights as well as good showbiz stories, check out my former Daily Show colleague JR Havlan’s Writers’ Bloc Podcast. Every episode has at least one solid gold nugget that helps you see your work in a new way.

This is the type of podcast and advice I’ve been waiting for. You cut straight to the good stuff, move with a sense of urgency, and it’s just great.

Currently on a @WritersBlocPod bender. To a wannabe writer, currently disguised as a suburban SAHM, it’s like manna to me. Amazeballs!

I’m a huge fan of the Writers Bloc. There hasn’t been a single disappointing guest. Every episode is consistently entertaining, and often laugh-out-loud funny.
— David, @LongOddNews
As an aspiring comedy writer, your podcast is extremely helpful. No one else is doing what you’re doing and I cannot thank you enough.
— Matthew Neimark, aspiring comedy writer
Absolutely loving the Writer’s Bloc podcast. It is slowly changing my attitude, output, and life (in that order). Please don’t ever stop doing it – it is too fantastic. Host @JRHavlan is giving away gold, ladies and gentlemen. GOLD.

I’M SO ADDICTED TO WRITERS’ BLOC!
— Laurie Kilmartin – writer, Conan, (@anylaurie16)
I found your podcast after your AMA. I devoured them all in a week or two, it has given me more information on writing than any DVD extra or website that I have ever seen or read.

Had to tell you how much I love your podcast! I work in production/am an aspiring writer, so it’s great to hear writers talk about writing.

HOW IS YOUR PODCAST NOT A TV SHOW…or at least a radio show.
