Podcast episode 538ish: Scott Patey

We forgot to immortalize this episode with a photo, but it's immortalized anyway as a podcast. Scott Patey made a return visit to the What's So Funny? studios. He talks about the greatness of Newfoundland, bar fights, playing nerds, acting with stars, and bonding with Jim Carrey. And we couldn't have Scott on without talking about the greatest sporting event known to man: Rock, Paper, Scissors. Sam was away but Pal filled in admirably as announcer.

Podcast episode 537ish: Guy & Sam

What? No guest? How can that be? Easy. Guy and Sam just conversed for the hour in the episode, just like most podcasts do. Sure, they talked about comedy. But along the way they talked about lots of other things, too. It's an easy-breezy chit-chat. Have a listen; see what you think.

Download it at iTunes, or anywhere else fine podcasts are available.

July 7: Scott Patey

It's been three years since Scott Patey was last (and first) with us. He was a lot of fun then so it should be lots of fun catching up with him. Scott is an improviser, actor and referee. We'll talk about all three tonight, with his work with Vancouver TheatreSports League, his movie roles with names such as "Injured Nerd", and his hosting the weekly Rock, Paper, Scissors competition at Corduroy in Kits.

Tune in to CFRO 100.5 FM for all the fun and frivolity. We on the air at 11 pm (or 12 if you're in Lloydminster, his hometown).

Podcast episode 536ish: Ari Matti

So long, Ari Matti, we hardly knew ye. Ari spent a year in Vancouver perfecting his English comedy chops. Now he returns home to Estonia. In this episode, he comes in injured with a freshly separated shoulder. He explains how that happens, talks a bit about the magical Raptors post-season, and explains his country's fun sauna techniques. Enjoy it! Ari's a blast.

If you're listening from Estonia or elsewhere in Eastern Europe, leave us a comment on iTunes, give us a rating. Spread the word! We're also available on Spotify, Stitcher, and all the usual podcast places. Oh, and right below, too, if you absolutely can't wait.

June 16: Ari Matti

Ari Matti was last (and first) with us this past November, but he's back again tonight. We figured we had to get him back in before he leaves us for his home and native land, Estonia. Ari's been in our fair city for a year playing all the clubs and rooms. A farewell show will take place July 3 at the Rio, where he will close out after Andrea Jin, Ola Dada, Andrew Packer and our old pal Dino Archie. Should be a good one. We'll see how his year has gone and if he'll miss us.

Tune in to CFRO 100.5 FM tonight at 11 pm or livestream us on coopradio.org or on your TuneIn Radio app.

Podcast episode 535ish: Taz VanRassel

Better late than never, folks. Here's our episode with improviser extraordinaire Taz VanRassel. We recorded this so long ago, I hardly remember what was said. But I do know he was a bit late to the show since he was coming straight from his weekly Sunday Service show at the Fox Cabaret. I also recall he was curious to find out about Big Chungus. And his favourite animal is the beaver. Legit.

Have a listen. We're on all your favourite podcast platforms, including iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify, etc. And here, too, at the link below.

Podcast episode 534ish: Chris Gaskin

We've got Chris Gaskin here for you. Chris was our guest a few weeks back and this is proof of that. We quizzed him on his wrestling knowledge. He dropped some obscure, but very funny, comedy names. And we patched up a non-feud.

You can listen with that link below or go download the episode at iTunes or Stitcher or ListenNotes.com or Spotify, etc.

Podcast episode 533ish: Jacob Samuel

We're a tad late getting this episode uploaded. It's worth the wait. Jacob Samuel is our guest, a very clever young standup comic and single-panel cartoonist. It had been four years since his first appearance on the show. He joined us fresh off the plane from a weekend at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival. We talked about preparing for his shows there, being Jewish in Canadian show business, and Charlie Demers.

Get it while it's hot. Listen immediately below or take your sweet time by moseying over to iTunes or Stitcher or Podbay.fm or wherever you get your podcasts.

May 19: Taz VanRassel

My records indicate that Taz VanRassel hasn't been with us since 2006, but that can't be right, can it? It says he was with us those long 13 years ago with Alistair Cook and Ryan Beil. Well, let's go with the records until we can clear it up with him tonight when he comes on solo. Taz will be scooting over to our studios straight from his weekly gig, The Sunday Service, at the Fox Cabaret. You can also see him many nights of the week at the Improv Centre on Granville Island in various Vancouver TheatreSports productions.

Tune in to CFRO 100.5 FM tonight at 11. We'll start then even if Taz hasn't shown up yet. You can livestream us at coopradio.org or listen to us via the TuneIn Radio app.

May 12: Chris Gaskin

Can it really have been eight years since Chris Gaskin was last with us? Wow. Well, he's back again tonight, on Mother's Day. We've got lots of catching up to do. I ran into Chris during the last week of shows at the Comedy MIX a couple weeks ago. Sometimes that's what it takes for me to book a guest. I run into them and then ask. Just like that. If you visit his website, you'll learn that he's an avid video game player, he loves professional wrestling, and hates raccoons. I also know that he knows his alcohol without being a drunk.

Tune in to CFRO 100.5 FM tonight at 11 pm for all the talk. Livestream us at coopradio.org if you must or look for us on the TuneIn Radio app.
