The Scene Podcast With Jim Tews Talking Felines of New York and More

Posted By on Wed, Nov 11, 2015 at 5:43 AM

On this episode of Two Girls With Glasses, Brandi McElhatten and Nikki Delamotte talk with Cleveland ex-pat comedian Jim Tews (@JimTews). Locals may remember Tews as one of the original organizers of the popular comedy show, Chucklefck, which has since morphed into the Accidental Comedy Show run by Ramon Rivas. He’s since moved to New York City and has gone on to work at MTV, made an appearance on Louie and Last Comic Standing, and now regularly performs around New York, both as a stand-up comic and vocalist of Weezer tribute band, The Undone Sweaters.

Tews is preparing to release his book, Felines of New York (felinesofnewyork.com), a parody of the popular Humans of New York Facebook page, on November 24. First started as a Facebook page, Tews began posting the captioned photos earlier this year and has already amassed more than 10 thousand followers. He calls in from New York with his two cats, Bea and Arthur, to talk about putting it together.



On November 22 in Brooklyn, Tews will be hosting a book launch party at Littlefield with a handful of comedians including Cleveland’s own Mike Polk and Todd Hanson, writer for The Onion. He'll also have a veterinarian on hand answering any cat-related questions the audience may have.
