Nov. 18: Lori Gibbs

Hey, look at this: We're back this week with a real guest! If you tuned in last week, we played comedy clips for the hour. The week before it was a special encore presentation of the Tim Rykert episode. But tonight, a brand new show and a brand new guest. In fact, I had never met Lori Gibbs prior to our meeting in her hotel room on Friday afternoon. And we went balls to the wall... No, wait, that doesn't sound good. In truth, I went balls to the wall and she went tits to the bricks... Um, well, if you know Lori's comedy, you'll get what I mean. We also had fun, which is a personal credo of the Vancouver native (who has lived in Calgary most of her adult life).

It was a good talk with a good person. She's like the Sally Field character in Punchline, although she always thought of herself as the John Goodman character. But she was a housewife who started comedy at the tender age of 40. And look at her go. Now she tours the country, with occasional forays into the US to open for former WSF? guest Iliza Shlesinger. And she's got a Comedy Now special to her credit.

Tonight's episode is a getting-to-know-you kind of affair. We get her back story as well as work out some personal demons. I think you'll enjoy it. I know I did.

So tune in tonight at 11 pm PST on CFRO, 100.5 FM in Vancouver. Livestream the puppy, if you're out of earshot, at
