f you ever share wrestling with an uninitiated fan, you gotta show them something with highspots, something like a car crash, or something funny, and on today’s episode we lean into the latter! Zak welcomes Lucha Libre & Laughs promoter Nick Gossert to Smark & Friends, and as you might tell about the company’s name, LLL brings together the worlds of wrestling and comedy.
We talk to Nick on how the idea of LLL came to be, times the comedians at commentary got the wrestlers to corpse, and how Nick responds to gatekeepers who say comedy has no place in wrestling. All this and more with Nick as he prepares for two upcoming shows; Day Drinking Demolition on May 22 and Hey Rube, their anniversary show on June 24th!
