Podcast episode 424ish: Jessica Holmes

It's the world podcast premiere of Canada's darling, Jessica Holmes! Right here, right now (or whenever you download and listen to it). Holmes was in town from her base in Toronto doing a corporate charity gig so I nabbed her for the program. Holmes started in standup (well, improv in high school) before getting known as a sketch performer on television with the Royal Canadian Air Farce and her own vehicle, The Holmes Show. These days, she doesn't hang around comedy clubs much and she tells us why. We also get into her background as a missionary for the LDS church in Venezuela. What?! Yes, it's true. She also talks about depression and the importance of having different interests from one's spouse. Oh, and because WSF? is a Celine Dion-free zone, I didn't get her to do her most famous impression. Sorry about that.

So here you go. Have at it. Click below and start enjoying this world premiere. Or go download the show on iTunes or Stitcher or wherever else you download fine podcasts.
