johnny beehnerMilwaukee-based stand-up comedian Johnny Beehner bought his Cavalier brand-new in 2005. Now it has more than 200,000 miles on it. If he can get there in 15 hours or less, he’d rather drive than fly.

Johnny started doing stand-up in 1999, then hit the road with his act in 2002. He’s been gigging full time since 2006.

Mark and Johnny talk about: the joys of stand-up, group and sketch comedy; why it’s important to know a little improv; hecklers; working with The Gentlemen’s Hour; and some of his worst gigs ever.
