June 30: Irwin Barker tribute (repeat)

Three years and nine days ago, on June 21, 2010, the great Irwin Barker passed away. Irwin was one of my all-time favourite comics and people. He guested twice on this program and soon after he died I cobbled together clips from his two appearances in tribute to the man. The thinking man's comic talked about the writing process, taming a crowd and living with cancer. And I throw in a couple of clips of his standup. It's great to hear his voice again. If you're a young comic and you haven't heard this before, I highly recommend it. Irwin is a fount of knowledge about the art form and he gives tons of great advice.

The show's been available in podcast form for a few years now but if you missed it or don't know how to download episodes, tune in tonight at 11 pm PST to CFRO, 100.5 FM or livestream the show at
