YMH Studios also produces Where My Mom’s At (a parenting podcast hosted by Christina),2 Bears 1 Cave (hosted by Segura and comedian Bert Kreischer), Dr. Drew After Dark (hosted by Dr. Drew Pinsky) and The Honey Dew with Ryan Sickler.

Segura is currently on tour with his new Spanish hour, and just wrapped his Take It Down Tour, which took the comedian to 11 countries with 183 shows and more than 335,000 tickets sold.

Not for the faint-hearted, in Ball Hog, Segura offers advice on how to handle emotionally fragile people, winning arguments with your mother, managing expectations, and following your dreams.
