Behind the Desk 72: Brandon Wetherbee An Erotic Life
BYT Staff | Nov 30, 2012 | 3:00PM |

Brandon Wetherbee hosts the talk show/podcast You, Me, Them, Everybody at the Wonderland Ballroom in D.C. and in Baltimore, Brooklyn, Chicago and Philadelphia. Listen to it online at He’ll be hosting the three-year anniversary of You, Me, Them, Everybody this Friday at the Wonderland Ballroom with house band Night Rockers, comedy person Adam Friedland, gift expert Michael Foody, advice expert Sara Armour, life expert Jamel Johnson and music from DJ Mikhail Z. (TNT!, D.C.) and Mattie Valentine (Ghost Town Social Club, Portland).

It’s three year anniversary of You, Me, Them, Everybody Live. The first show was on November 30, 2009 at the Hungry Brain in Chicago. Beth Stelling was a guest. She was on “Conan” this summer. The other guest from that show has not been on “Conan.”

SIDENOTE: I love how this video has 208 likes and 86 dislikes. That’s funny. The 86 people that disliked it, or one one weird dude that disliked it 86 times, thinks that his (It’s always dudes) opinion on YouTube clips matters. Like the marketing team behind the video game “Hitman: Absolution” gives a shit what you think about stand up comedy.

The show has been recorded in Chicago, D.C., New York City, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Baltimore and other places with professional sports team. We’ve done it in places without teams but those shows do not count. SPORTS!

This is an 18+ event. ~~~~ About Jon Dore: Named one of “10 comics to watch” by Variety, Ottawa-born comedian, host and actor Jon Dore is renowned for his offbeat humour and unique bait-and-switch style. Dore is a favourite on the comedy club and festival circuit in Canada and the United States. He has hosted the Just for Laughs Festival Homegrown Comedy Competition on a number of occasions and has enjoyed sold-out runs at the Festival’s Montreal and Toronto locations, at comedy festivals in Halifax, Vancouver, Portland and Washington, DC, and at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. From his humble beginnings as the co-host of the cable talk show Daytime Ottawa (Rogers Television) and the irreverent roving reporter on Canadian Idol (CTV), Dore recently starred in the critically acclaimed ABC-TV series How to Live with Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life) opposite Sarah Chalke, Elizabeth Perkins and Brad Garrett. Dore is the host of HBO Canada’s Funny as Hell, a series showcasing bold and uncensored comedy from the fastest rising comedians at the Just For Laughs Festival, currently shooting its fourth season. He is the star of his own award-winning ‘mockumentary’ series, The Jon Dore Television Show, documenting his hilarious and outrageous debates on life’s challenges and changes, from weight loss to gender. He also served as co-creator, co-producer and writer on the series, proving he is just as comfortable behind the camera. The series ran for a successful two seasons on IFC and The Comedy Network. Dore starred in the stand-up specials Comedy Central Presents...Jon Dore and Comedy Now! (CTV/The Comedy Network); appeared on a number Comedy Central’s specials including Live At Gotham, CC: Stand-Up: The Bonnaroo Experience and Mash Up; made guest-starring turns on How I Met Your Mother (CBS) and Scare Tactics (Syfy); and was the lead in the CBS pilot My Life As An Experiment. A regular on late night talk shows, Dore has the honor of being the first stand-up to appear on Conan (TBS). Dore's feature film credits include the indie drama Gus opposite Michelle Monaghan (Mission: Impossible III) and the comedy Stag, with Donald Faison (Scrubs) and Eva Amurri (Californication), which picked up two awards - Best Ensemble and Excellence in Filmmaking - at the LA Comedy Film Festival. TV Guide Canada called Dore one of the “rising stars of the future” and Toronto weekly NOW Magazine named him Best Male Stand-up. He is the recipient of four Canadian Comedy Awards including: Best Taped Live Performance (2010) for Just for Laughs; Best Performance by a Male in a Television Show (2009) for The Jon Dore Television Show; Best Writing on a Series (2008) for The Jon Dore Television Show; and Best Stand-up Newcomer (2006). He is also a two-time Gemini nominee (2008 & 2009) for Best Individual Performance in a Comedy Program or Series for The Jon Dore Television Show. ~~~ Thanks to our sponsor: More Bentzen Ball shows available at: Stay informed:

I lost track of the show count over a year ago, once we hit 100. So we’ve done a lot of this. It’s neat.

You know what else is neat? Erotic.

Not erotic film or cinema, but the word. Erotic. Erotica sounds like you have to be between 42 and 54 to enjoy people doing stuff in/around stuff, but the word erotic just sounds funny.

-What did you get your stepmom for the holidays?
-Some erotica books. My stepmom enjoys reading erotica.
-Yes. Stepmoms do enjoy erotica. That is a very nice gift.

-What did you get your stepmom for the holidays?
-A book.
-What kind of book?
-An erotic book.

See? The word erotic is the best/funniest word in the English language. Unless you work in an office and Google (FUCK YOU BING!!! Sorry, Bing. I meant Bing.) Image search ‘erotic’ with Safe Search turned off. I just did that. It was not erotic. It was father-less.

I’ve been working on tonight’s show for a few weeks. We have a special music act, Mikhail Z. (TNT!, D.C.) and Mattie Valentine (Ghost Town Social Club, Portland) will DJ, a special poster by Ned Drummond was made and there are surprises for the audience.

I should be working on polishing my monologue and preparing more guest questions, but all I can think of is my gravestone. I want my gravestone to read “An Erotic Life.”

Hahahahaha! Erotic!

We’re going to have an erotic anniversary show. Hahaha! I’m literally LOL’ing about the word erotic because YOLO.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful night.

    I would like to express appreciation to the writer for rescuing me from this type of incident. Right after researching through the internet and getting advice which were not beneficial, I figured my entire life was gone. Being alive devoid of the strategies to the issues you’ve solved by way of this write-up is a critical case, as well as the ones that would have in a wrong way affected my career if I had not encountered your web page. Your main skills and kindness in taking care of all things was crucial. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a subject like this. It’s possible to at this point look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time very much for this professional and amazing help. I will not be reluctant to suggest your web site to anybody who will need tips on this area.

    Absolutely amazing! I was thinking with regards to exactly this last evening, and I just stumbled through to it! – July 4. Statistics show that we lose more fools on this day than in all the other days of the year put together. This proves, by the number left in stock, that one fourth of July per year is now inadequate, the country has grown so. Mark Twain 1835 1910
