Aug. 18: Sunee Dhaliwal

Sunee Dhaliwal appeared on What's So Funny? in 2011, 2012 and 2013. He was on a roll. Then... nada. Gonzo. Where has he been? We'll find out tonight when Sunee makes his triumphant return to the show! I know he left us for Toronto at some point (which may explain his absences, but we've had other Toronto comics on in those years) and we'll catch up with him about his official whereabouts. I ran into Sunee a few weeks back at an outdoor basketball tournament (we were spectators) and we reconnected. Hopefully he's more sober tonight!

Tune in to CFRO 100.5 FM at 11pm for all the trash-talking.

Podcast episode 541ish: Angela Galanopoulos

What a grand time we had with improviser Angela Galanopolous. And not just because she brought us edible figs. We had a great chat. She told us about living in Mexico City, visiting Athens as a kid (see figs above), improv training in Chicago, and performing in Vancouver. It's a world tour in one hour!

Listen to us talking here and now (see link below) or save us for later by downloading the episode on iTunes/Stitcher/Spotify/PodBay etc. And subscribe while you're at it! Give us a review. Good or bad; we can take it.

Podcast episode 540ish: Myles Anderson

Another newbie graces our studios in this episode. Myles Anderson is the only standup comic/piano teacher I know. We don't often think of classical music and comedy – especially since Victor Borge died. But Anderson doesn't use the piano in his act. Not regularly, anyway, although we encourage him to. We talk about his island upbringing, music school, his new album (Myles from Home) on 604 Records, and lots more.

You can listen here, if you wish. Or download the show at iTunes or Stitcher or listen on Spotify. Do what you like. It's available (almost) everywhere.


Podcast episode 539ish: David Thomas Newham

Sidekick Sam Tonning takes the reins in this one, both booking and interviewing first-time guest David Thomas Newham, a multidisciplinary theatre artist who acts, writes, directs, and lights at Seven Tyrants Theatre company and also runs the comedy lounge at The Penthouse. Sam gets to the bottom of it all in this episode.

Aug. 4: Angela Galanopoulos

Tonight on this holiday long-weekend our esteemed guest is a first-timer to the program. And it'll be the first time we meet, although I've seen her on the stage before at VTSL's Improv Theatre. Angela Galanopoulos is also a member of the Fictionals improv troupe and in the dramatic comedy soap opera-style web series Michelle's, which she created with former What's So Funny? guest Andrew Barber. We'll get the lowdown on everything else she does, both professionally and for fun, tonight.

So tune in to CFRO 100.5 FM tonight at 11 pm for all the fun and frivolity.
