Everyone has one of those friends who has you in stitches every time they open their mouth. For us, that guy is comedian and author, Charlie Berens. (He is also a journalist turned online content creator, kind of like us!)

We ask Charlie where he gets that comedic gift. Turns out, it’s not about sitting around dreaming up jokes; it’s more about paying attention to the world around you. As one of 12 kids, he got plenty of comedic material... bless his parents. His new book, The Midwest Survival Guide, is available for pre-order now and you can get dates for his upcoming comedy tour here.

About the Holderness Family: Penn, Kim, Lola, and Penn Charles Holderness create original music, parodies, and Vlogs for YouTube and Facebook to poke fun of themselves and celebrate the absurdity in circumstances most families face in their day to day life. They published "Christmas Jammies" in December 2013 and life hasn't been the same. Since then, their popular parodies, "All About That Baste", "Baby Got Class," and original music "Snow Day" have received national news coverage. Penn, the Dad, took a chance and left his job as a news anchor to join his wife Kim, the Mom, at their video production and digital marketing company, Greenroom Communications, LLC. Lola and Penn Charles are always happy, respectful and eat all of their vegetables (that last sentence is a lie).

The Holderness Family Podcast is Edited and Engineered by Max Trujillo of Trujillo Media.
