Oct. 14: Lynn Shawcroft
Lynn Shawcroft was in town last week for Thanksgiving. Maybe you didn't know she's Canadian. Well, now you know. Maybe you don't know who she is. Well, tonight you will. Here are the basic facts: she's an Ontario-born comedian who was married to the late, great Mitch Hedberg for the last six years of his life. Last Tuesday night, we sat in the mobile What's So Funny? studios (my car) down at English Bay and talked about her career and Mitch. She opened up about Hedberg more than she ever has publicly before, she told me. While you wait for the show to air (tonight at 11 pm PDT on 100.5 FM or livestream at coopradio.org), why not visit the website she started to help keep the Hedberg name alive. There's lots of great stuff there, including video, audio, writings and photos.
