This week on Cheers, Stomps & Whistles, Ryan chats with John Roiniotis!

They also talk about the sometimes polarizing LA comedy scene, compartmentalizing your life and trying to not indulge in unnecessary things. You can see John perform every other week at his show At First Sight - check it out at the Clubhouse on Saturdays at 10:00pm.
