Podcast episode 196ish: Irwin Barker tribute
This is the first episode of its kind on What's So Funny? and, it is hoped, the last. It's not fun mourning the loss of a friend and comedy icon. But I have to admit I liked putting the show together just because I got to go back over the two times Irwin Barker paid a visit to our little show, cull select segments and arrange them thematically. Barker knew so much about comedy and loved talking about it. Comedy nerds everywhere should love listening to his expertise in this tribute to the man. And we also touched on the disease that would eventually take his life on June 21, 2010, at the age of 58.
