Ep 171. Houston Home Grown, Ali Siddiq

Sep 24, 08:00 AM

I am joined this week by Houston Comic Superstar, Ali Siddiq and we discuss his mission to change the mindset of the Houston Comedic Fan Mindset.

He joins me this week to discuss why he never left Houston when he hit it big and of course, his next comedy special, filmed right here in Houston at the Improv.

We work through the mindset of comedy fans and of course comics on why they leave the city in an effort to make it big with many making no effort to support their hometown's talent.

Whiskey Neat is a Radio show on iTunes and ESPN 97.5 FM in Houston and is brought to you every week by the following sponsors.

SAGAMORE
This week’s episode is brought to you by Sagamore Spirit Rye Whiskey. They are reviving the tradition of Maryland-style rye whiskey at their Baltimore farm and waterfront distillery. Each batch of their whiskey is hand-blended for consistency in aroma, flavor, and texture, creating a balanced flavor profile with notes of warm cinnamon, vanilla bean, honey, and spice. Find them online at Sagamore Spirit dot com or visit your local retailer to pick up a bottle. Please drink responsibly.

Whiskey Neat is brought to you in part by Legent Bourbon - a first-of-its-kind
super-premium bourbon that melds Kentucky distilling tradition with Japanese blending excellence. Legent is a perfectly balanced yet complex and layered whiskey with a bright, smooth, unexpectedly long finish. Order a bottle in your area via Drizly.com. Drink Smart.
