Jan. 13: Paul Hooper
We're back with our first live guest of 2013. Tonight we've got Paul Hooper back again for the very first time... What? Let me explain. The first time Hooper appeared on the show, it was recorded from his hotel room. Most out-of-town comics (Hooper is a Charlotte native now living in New York) leave town on the Sunday so we don't often get them live in studio. But Paul, after finishing a weekend headlining Laffline's Comedy Club in New Westminster, has lined up some gigs in Victoria (or Langford, to be exact) on Monday and Tuesday so we're lucky he's available to us tonight. I love talking to the guy. He's got a bucketful of neuroses and anxieties and loves talking about them. But we'll get to other topics, too, since we covered many of them the last time he was on. If you missed that episode, I put together a little video snippet of it. That'll give you a taste of what to expect tonight. I'm looking forward to it.
Paul Hooper on What's So Funny? back in March 2012 (the video says 2011 but it's wrong):
So tune in tonight at 11 pm PST to CFRO, 100.5 FM, for a live chat with our old friend. You can lifestream the show at coopradio.org if you're out of radio range.
