Jan. 17: Ivan Decker
It's hat-trick time for Ivan Decker as he makes his third appearance on What's So Funny? tonight. We're both going to see the great Bill Burr earlier tonight so I'm sure we'll talk a bit about that. There's plenty more to talk about. The standup comic is on the rise. He plays festivals all over the country and has a new CD coming out in the next couple of months. I saw him opening up for John Mulaney last year and he killed. That was a perfect pairing. Both are bright, hilarious, dapper young comics. No word yet on if he's opening up for any big hitters next month at the JFL Northwest festival here in Vancouver but maybe we'll get a scoop tonight. He's so busy, apparently he has no more time for his science-based comedy podcast Science Us!, which seems to have ended last April. Last year Ivan was named one of Vancouver's most eligible bachelors. Is he still? We'll find out.
We're on the air at 11 pm on CFRO 100.5 FM in Vancouver. Or listen in anywhere else in the world via livestream at coopradio.org or through your fancy radio streaming apps.
