First Day Back

On May 3rd 2017, stand up comedian Jason Weems collapsed from an asthma attack while performing on stage. His heart stopped beating for a full 5 minutes. He was lucky enough to be revived by a member of the audience. Now, he's using his onstage death as a springboard to becoming the next big name in national comedy. For the last year, Tally has been following Jason Weems as he attempts to reach comedy greatness. Named one of New York Magazine’s “Ten Best Podcasts of 2017” and “an enduring classic” by the Guardian, First Day Back is a documentary podcast series about people facing and trying to overcome life’s most challenging moments.
