“I still talk about things I’m interested in and things I’m curious about,” comedian Joe Zimmerman says of his current set. “Right now, I’m watching that documentary on Netflix called One Strange Rock.”
It’s narrated by eight former astronauts, as well as actor Will Smith. “On the one hand, I’m blown away by how amazing our planet is, and on the other hand, I want to be friends with Will Smith.”
Zimmerman has also channeled his curiosity into a new podcast called A Great Listening Experience in which he studies a topic and looks for what he calls the upside.
“Depression, for example,” he says. “Turns out there are some benefits to depression.”
When not satisfying his curiosity about certain subjects, he plays guitar. “I do that to relax,” he says. “I definitely don’t play with anyone watching, and I definitely don’t do it to impress any girls.”
