It's amateur night at the Chuckle Hut in Willowick, Ohio. Headlining the show is everyone's favorite amateur, FMR: Comedy and Podcast Hero.

"Hello, IWA! I just flew in from Sandusky and, boy, are my arms tired! Take my wife... please! Why did the chicken cross the road? Because his iPod was over there and he needed to listen to my Podcast! Why? For I am the WORLD CHAMP, a milestone over five years in the making for Kevin Elrod. Speaking of Mr. Elrod, he told me a joke: 'What's a pirate's favorite letter?' The R, I say, but Elrod goes, 'No, it's the C!' Cut-It-Out. LOVE ME, PEOPLE! For I am your hero! Why? Because I said so! Okay, everyone in the Chuckle Hut, up on stage, all two of you!"

The couple looks at each other in disbelief, but relents.

"Selfie time! This belt and my two new besties at the Chuckle Hut. On three, guys, say, 'FMR BESTIES!' One... two... tha-REE: FMR BESTIES!!! I am the WORLD CHAMP, WOOO!!!"

Comedy and Podcast Hero proceeds to pull a Groucho Marx mask from a bag and does a Ric Flair strut across the stage.

"I don't care if you are the only two people here to see me! FOR I AM YOUR COMEDY AND PODCAST HERO!!! THE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD!!! (And the American champ, but who's counting?) And for all that is IWA holy... I thank you! #playbymailbesties #FMRBFF's"
