July 1: Dwight Slade

Happy Dominion Day, Canada. (I'm old-school.) Seeing as it's the birthday of our nation, I couldn't get any Canadian comics. Thankfully, the Americans don't celebrate their big day until Wednesday so Dwight Slade came through.

Okay, so the holiday has nothing to do with our guest. This interview with Dwight was recorded a few weeks ago when he was headlining the Comedy MIX. It came about quickly, too I went to see him on a Thursday night and we decided then and there to meet the next morning to record the show. Easy-peasy.

It was wonderfully dark and poignant. Some of the themes we touch on are death, drinking, aging, comedic relevance, his dear departed friend Bill Hicks, forgotten Tonight Show comedians, and cruise ships. It's a good one.

So tune in tonight at 11 until about 12:15 PST (it runs a little long but it's worth it). Tomorrow's a stat holiday so you can sleep in. As always, we're on CFRO 102.7 FM in Vancouver but you can livestream the show at
