Actor/Director/Comedian Michael Rapaport grew his comedic styling a modeled after stand up comedians Richard Pryor, Lenny Bruce, George Carlin, Don Rickles, Eddie Murphy, Andrew Dice Clay and more but it wasn't until he appeared on comic Bill Burr's Monday Morning Podcast that he realized that this was the format he'd been waiting for. Unfiltered, unrestrained and unrated, the I AM RAPAPORT: STEREO PODCAST was born. These two best friends since 1982 have carved a specific niche in entertainment that has the show shooting up the iTunes charts. Michael and Gerald represent everyman, pride themselves on being the "Moral Compass" for the world with their comedic points of view and they're coming to do a live performance in your town!
