July 17: Dave Burleigh
In the last of our Las Vegas broadcasts we've got a guy I had never heard of prior to the day of the recording. Former Vancouverite Richard Kiss, who now resides in Vegas, suggested that Dave Burleigh would be a good guest. Who am I to turn down a recommendation? So Richard brought Dave up to my room at the Flamingo and a minute later we were sitting down talking into microphones. And an excellent recommendation it was. I had a lot of fun talking to Dave, a California comic who recently moved to Vegas where he hopes to put together a regular nightly show complete with band. We discuss the genesis of the idea, along with the stigma of doing impressions on stage, his worst corporate gig ever and Olivia Newton-John not talking to him. Along the way, we're joined by Mr. Kiss with cameos by Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Christopher Walken and John Travolta. So tune in tonight at 11 PST to CFRO 102.7 FM or livestream it here.
