Welcome to Anchored in Asbury, a monthly music interview podcast that revolves around the rich musical culture of Asbury Park, New Jersey.
Each month we talk with musicians, promoters, and people behind the scenes about their journeys in the music industry and how Asbury Park has been and is such a vital part of it.
The podcast is hosted by Bill Bodkin, editor-in-chief of ThePopBreak.com, who not only has covered the Asbury Park music scene for 19 years but produced and sponsored live shows throughout the city for the past decade.
In this episode, we step away from the music scene to talk with comedian Angelo Gingerelli. Angelo is not only a comedian, but the co-owner of Ugly Pancake Productions which produces stand-up shows around the Jersey Shore, a published author, a father, husband and a senior staff writer for Pop Break.
Angelo and Bill discuss Angelo’s early foray into the Asbury comedy scene and how he ran Comedy on Cookman at The Showroom for years. They also discuss Angelo’s philosophy about scene over self, his book about stand-up comedy, the growing Asbury park scene, producing live events, his comedy goals and his biggest accomplishments.
