TAMPA, FLORIDA — The milestone 200th episode of the weekly “Now Hear This Entertainment” podcast was released today. The show that features interviews with guests who are having success in entertainment adds to its impressive guest roster with comedian Jim Florentine as the featured guest on this landmark episode.
“I’m both proud and humbled to reach this mark in the show’s history,” said Bruce Wawrzyniak, host and creator of NHTE. “In February 2014 when the show first launched I’m not sure that I envisioned 200 episodes and guests of this magnitude. I’m truly grateful to everyone who listens and subscribes to the podcast and am equally thankful to all of the great guests who have given their time to appearing on NHTE.”
He added that, “I’m also proud that for well over three-and-a-half years now, a new episode has been delivered on-time, every week.”
Having gotten listeners from 130 countries, spanning all five regions of the world (Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania), NHTE has featured guests ranging from the keyboard player for Aerosmith to the lead guitar player for Garth Brooks to the drummer for Joe Walsh to the trumpet player for Billy Joel, plus, a Grammy Award winner, a Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, a Las Vegas headliner, two Emmy Award winners, and even participants from “American Idol,” “The Voice,” “America’s Got Talent,” and “The X Factor.”
Jim Florentine appears regularly on stages around the country doing standup comedy. He has appeared on shows ranging from Jimmy Kimmel to Howard Stern. He has released CDs and DVDs and has a book due out in February called Everybody is Awful (Except You). He hosts a podcast called, “Comedy Metal Midgets” and was a host on “That Metal Show” on VH1.
