Welcome to the launch of Joe Sib’s new live show, Complete Control!
For our very first episode we’re excited to have two amazing guests.
First, the long time bassist for the legendary punk band Bad Religion, Jay Bentley, sits down with Joe to talk about the band, its history, what life’s like now and whats coming up next.
Then, the beautiful and talented comedian Iliza Shlesinger joins in to talk about what she’s been up to and what to expect in the near future. Iliza and Jay both share personal and funny insights of what its like touring and performing on stage.
Get ready for the exciting launch of TheLip.tv’s newest show Complete Control!
Jay Bentley has been a key member of Bad Religion since their start over 30 years ago. Jay was also an instrumental component of the band’s imprint, Epitaph, until the rigorous touring duties of Bad Religion prevented him from keeping his ‘straight’ job.
Iliza Shlesinger is a one-woman juggernaut of comedy, having won “Last Comic Standing,” released her own stand-up record, and hosted “The Weakly News.” She also hosts “Excused,” the reality dating show and has recently released “Iliza Live.”
