Most comedians are reflexively pegged as downtrodden, unsentimental cynics—and rightfully so. Ryan Singer, however, takes a more wondrous approach. On his podcast, Me and Paranormal You, the widely respected comic’s comic suggests it’s more fun to believe. On the show, a variety of guests, including renowned standups like Shane Mauss and Kyle Kinane, share their most supernatural—or just plain weird—experiences. The podcast is more about fantastical exploration than revealing some grandiose hidden truths about the world. Fortunately, there’s plenty of levity to balance out the somewhat serious subject matter, thanks to Singer’s ease and waggish sensibilities. It’s this kind of comic relief that makes Singer’s standup so thoroughly enjoyable, making him one of the stronger crossover acts on the alt-comedy circuit.
