Podcast episode 588ish: Todd Van Allen


Todd Van Allen isn't above any pub in this episode. Todd is the host of one of the longest-running podcasts in the country, but we clear up that it isn't THE longest-running (ahem). We talk about butterflies, magic, cable access stardom, math, ICQ, voice-over work, and approaching celebrities.

Podcast episode 587ish: Brian Aylward



Brian Aylward is big in Asia. But at 6-3 and 260 pounds, he's pretty big in all 28 countries he performed in. We speak to him from his home in Bangkok where he is convalescing from a scary motorcycle accident. The Newfoundlander and former Canadian Comedy Award winner has a new special, aptly titled Big in Asia, which he filmed in front of locals in Mongolia.

Check out the trailer for his special on YouTube.

Podcast episode 586ish: Dylan Rhymer


Dylan Rhymer, the old man of comedy, returns to the program in his 25th year of doing standup – even if he didn't do a whole lot of standup this past year. But he's okay with that. In this episode, we talk about Friday the 13th, watching movies all day and night for charity and fun, various other scary movies, his uncanny hack impersonations, and his State of the Week satire site. This episode is with 50 percent less Sam Tonning!

Podcast episode 585ish: Kenny Robinson


Kenny Robinson is on the road again, bringing his special brand of blue comedy to the socially-distanced comedy clubs around the country. Yet he very thoughtfully censored himself in this episode. We talked about his early years in Chicago and Winnipeg, his brushes with racism in Canada, thoughts on a young Arsenio Hall, cheap millionaires trying to save eight bucks., and working swingers conventions.

Podcast episode 582ish: Mike Wilmot


Mike Wilmot returns 13 years after his first appearance on the show. It's a new Uncle Mike now. He's lost a ton of weight, but is as filthy (and funny) as ever. We had a lot of fun on this one talking about lightweight drinkers, industry showcases, fears, Pete Tong, and, of course, his father's penis. Recorded September 22, 2020.

Podcast episode 581ish: Bob Saget

 I had spoken with Bob Saget three other times over the years, but he had never done the show. He can cross that off his bucket list now. It's always a wild ride talking to the former star of Full House and America's Funniest Home Videos. And we didn't even mention either of those shows in this episode. What we did talk about, among other things, was his photographic memory of a bad review he got in a Toronto paper 42 years ago, including the name of the reviewer and his terrible memory when it comes to me. He also told us about his umbilical penis, told stories of Richard Pryor and Rodney Dangerfield, and discussed Johnny, Merv and Mike. We were into it so much, he was late for his recording of his podcast, "Bob Saget's Here For You."

You can listen to this wherever you find "Bob Saget's Here For You" (I assume) or any other podcast. If that's too much trouble, I've included a link below.

Podcast episode 580ish: Ian Bagg

How's your summer going? Fine? Great. Let's get on with the show. This week our guest is the esteemed Sir Ian Bagg. Ian's a powerhouse comic from BC but who has been living south of the border for 25 years. Watch his specials on Amazon Prime. I highly recommend them. Watch his podcast Around the Bagg on YouTube. That's a lot of fun, too. Listen to his old albums, sure, but do you know he has a brand new one out now on 800 Pound Gorilla Records? It's called Everybody Wants Some. But before you do, listen to our conversation wherein we talk about his days coming up in Vancouver, his early days in New York, and doing drive-in shows and beaches in Covid times.

You can listen at the link right here in this post. Or go find us on your favourite podcast server. You know the drill.

Podcast episode 579ish: Shirley Gnome

It's been three years since Shirley Gnome was last with us, but we've rectified that situation here. For her fifth appearance, we had her locked up in her home. But she had her guitar with her, so we got a couple of live tunes out of the songbird. We also talked about America, club music, hecklers, Nickelback, and cunnilingus.
You can listen here, if you like. But it's way easier to go find us on your favourite podcast server. We're there. Download us. Listen at your leisure.
