Mar. 27: Lisa Lampanelli and Chris Porter

While I'm away this weekend, my trusty manservant, Kevin, will play two banked interviews I recently conducted. The first is a phoner, as we say in the biz, with comedy's lovable queen of mean, Lisa Lampanelli. It was my second time chatting with Ms. Lampanelli and right off the bat you find out just how meaningful our first talk was. But she was great. A nice mix between her on-stage persona and her real self.

Half an hour later, you'll hear an in-person interview with comedian Chris Porter. I feel I need to qualify which Chris Porter it is to differentiate him from the gay porn star Chris Porter. And since our chat took place up in his hotel room, I really wanted to make that clear. This Porter is the one who bears a resemblance to Willy Wonka and who finished a very respectable third on season 4 of NBC's Last Comic Standing. We talked about that and find out his opinion of alternative comedy, among other things.

So that's tonight at 11. Be there. I won't be, but you can be. CFRO 102.7 FM in Vancouver or livestream it at
