May 19: Darrin Rose
It's a holiday tomorrow so why not celebrate by staying up late and listening to a very special edition of What's So Funny? OK, it's not all that special, but we do have a first-time guest so that's something. And he happens to be all over your TV set these days. Darrin Rose is a Toronto-based (soon to be Los Angeles-based) stand-up comic/actor/writer/game show host whose national tour made it to Vancouver last week so I sat down with him and we talked about his life and times. We hit all the major themes, such as rampant alcohol abuse on Match Game, the meticulousness of Mr. Dee, and family secrets. Sounds enticing, doesn't it?
Tune in to CFRO 100.5 at 11 pm here in Vancouver. If you're one of Darrin's Oshawa homeys, though, or a Rose fan outside the greater 604, livestream the episode at coopradio.org.
