Dec. 17: Ivan Decker

A young fresh-faced Decker.
Take two! A couple weeks ago, a Vancouver standup comic made his American network TV debut. Ivan Decker did a set on Conan, which is a big proverbial feather in his proverbial cap. And then we had him all set up to come on the show and talk about it... last week. But when you're a big star, big gigs fall into your lap and young Ivan had to postpone our rendezvous to go entertain Albertans in their natural habitat. But he's here with us tonight... fingers crossed! He was in town on Wednesday, I know, because I saw him performing at the Cobalt (see big gigs, above) and he reconfirmed his appearance on What's So Funny? tonight. Other Vancouver comedians have done late night talk show sets (Phil Hanley on Craig Ferguson, Lachlan Patterson on Jay Leno's Tonight Show, Darryl Lenox on Conan, Dino Archie on Jimmy Kimmel) but Ivan is the first one who's done it while still living and working in Vancouver. Because he still lives here, we can have him on our show again so he's here tonight and he's going to tell us all about his Conan experience, from how he got it, to the day of the show, to the aftermath.

We're on the air at 11 pm on CFRO 100.5 FM right here in foggy Vancouver town. You can livestream us at or find us on the TuneIn Radio app.
