“I’m not the coolest person. I’ve never been especially cool. When I was a kid, I once shoplifted a thesaurus. But then I felt so guilty, so remorseful, so repentant, so shameful, I brought it back.” – Jess Salomon, guest on the Department of Tangents Podcast EP54, who will be taping a new album at the New York Comedy Club on November 6 as part of the New York Comedy Festival.
