Comedian Carole Montgomery and her son, Layne, appear on this episode of the Based on Nothing podcast! Of course, Layne is a frequent guest but we've never heard from his very hilarious mother who has been a comedian for most of her life! Carole is known as the National Mom due to her involvement in Armed Forces Entertainment, which brings comedy overseas to the US military. In this episode, she talks with Jacob about her times starting out, the modern comedy scene, and how much Layne is a brat.
