Ivan Decker Talks Fatherhood, New Comedy Special, Popcorn & More 

February 26, 2024

Ivan Decker sits down with me to talk about his fatherhood journey. He shares the values he looks to instill into his son. In addition, he gives a great dad hack about cutting your baby’s fingernails. After that we talk about his new comedy special, Popcorn. I ask Ivan how he balances fatherhood and parenting material to his other content when it comes to creating new material for his stand-up shows. Lastly, we finish the interview with the Fatherhood Quick Five.
