In this episode, I sit down with Pro Gamer, Shinobi (Austin Kent), to see if girls not sleeping with me makes me a good video game player or if that was just a coincidence. (Probably my face.)

Shinobi plays Super Smash Brothers Melee and was on of the first inspirations for my podcast years ago when I met him on tour. While touring through Missouri again I caught up with him and filmed this episode.

KYLE - Sex and Super Smash Bros (Prod. By Deaf Heff)

People say "being a comedian is the toughest job in the world."

Comedian Andrew Rivers can think of a million things that would be more difficult, so he's going to show you. Follow along: facebook.com/nightjobpodcast

On this episode Andrew meets up Magician Louie Foxx. 

The Society of American Magicians voted Louie The Best Stage Magician and Best Close-Up Magician in Minnesota in 1996. He has also been featured twice in the prestigious Linking Ring magazine which is a magazine for the 13,000 members of the International Brotherhood of Magicians! Louie has also written several books about magic tricks for professional magicians, one of which has sold over 2,300 copies!

Louie is also a Two Time Guinness World Record Holder and has been on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, the nationally syndicated television show How ‘Bout That, Evening Magazine, New Day Northwest, Otra Movida TV in Spain, and in London’s Guardian Newspaper!

Louie is enjoying life as the rockstar dad. He now has a valid excuse to go to the zoo once a week and build forts out of the sofa cushions.

Check out the webseries on youtube as I interview Louie and then attempt to learn magic tricks and fool drunk people at bars :)

In this interview - I chat with my friend Beth Carpenter who was a teacher in Thailand for several years teaching the English Language. Then she got a job helping fight Ebola in Africa. I didn't crack a lot of jokes because I was just learning so much. 

This isn't a meant to be a political episode but if you listen to people try to create hysteria about Ebola or refugees it's just because they're lying. Just use common sense and research. Ask around. Instead of listening to Donald Trump. Ask someone who works with or around refugees. 

Make your voice heard and be engaged in Government: https://www.5calls.org/ 

Check out Beth's Thai Karaoke Songs about hand washing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DD42VAM384 "Than N'Su"

I was talking to someone who mentioned they were subscribe on iTunes but didn't know there was a video series on youtube. GET IT TOGETHER.

So I made this short clip with some BONUS FOOTAGE of me getting my face punched. This is completely different than the footage on youtube. That's how much fun we had making it. Anyway, if you like this, I'll probably make one for all of the episodes.
