Podcast episode 565ish: Dwight Slade

We can't leave the house, but new episodes keep on coming. This week in the What's So Funny? Isolation Studio, we've got Dwight Slade! He joins us from his study in Boise, Idaho, surrounded by toilet paper. We talk about the situation and whether it's covid or corona. We also talk about his days as a 15-year-old standup comedian in Houston with his partner and best pal Bill Hicks, moving to Los Angeles, then steadily moving farther and farther away from show business: first to Portland for 23 years, and then on to Boise. We even talk about UFOs. Or at least, one specific UFO.

To help keep you from going stir-crazy, have a listen. We're here for you. You can click down below to listen, or simply go download us wherever fine podcasts are handed out. We'll be there, too.

Podcast episode 564ish: Eddie Brill

We're doing things a little backwards this week. Usually we start with our radio program, then release it later as a podcast. This week, and maybe for the next little while, we'll release the podcast version first. Yesterday, Sidekick Sam and host Guy MacPherson talked with Eddie Brill, live from New York! It was all done through the magic of Zencastr, a nifty little tool that maybe doesn't sound as good as an in-face conversation, but it sounds a lot better than Skype or a phone call. We asked Eddie what it was like in New York in these sci-fi times. Then we started the great diversionary talk of all things comedy, from how late night TV stacks up today versus the early days and the 17 years Eddie spent with David Letterman's show, his salad days at Emerson college, his mullet-days performing on the Comedy Club Network in 1990, doing drugs with Sam Kinison, and more!

Eddie has three podcasts of his own, including OG Talk, which you can listen to the regular podcast way or watch on YouTube (OG stands for Organic Grill). There's also 11 episodes of The Break with Eddie Brill and Relationships are a Motherfucker.

As for this episode, you can listen below or check out all the podcast platforms. We're there. If you find us on a place you can leave a rating or a review, please do so.

Podcast episode 563ish: Carl Turnbull

Got nothing to do? Thank God for podcasts! Here's one you haven't heard yet. It's Vancouver standup Carl Turnbull talking with good pal Sam Tonning. Just the two of them, face to face, heart to heart. Turnbull talks about his dad's standup career and all the greats he worked with south of the border. They also touch on 90 Day Fiancé, Jay & Dan, misbehaving in school, and giving relationship advice to senior citizens.

You can click below to get things rolling, or go download the episode (and any of the other 562 you haven't heard yet) at Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, PodBay, what-have-you. Actually, I think those sites only include the latest 250 or some such number. If you want some of the early shows dating all the way back to 2004, go to Maybe even Libsyn has them all.

Podcast episode 562ish: Paul Myrehaug & Damonde Tschritter

Oh, the fun we had on this episode with old pals Paul Myrehaug and Damonde Tschritter. Former Vancouver resident Myrehaug now plies his trade based out of the south of France. He tells us about that lifestyle. Tschritter, the only Canadian to have won the Seattle International Comedy Competition (as he's quick to remind us), was on fire on this night, ripping into all of us with reckless abandon. Laughter abounds.

Have a listen below or, better yet, find us on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. And leave a review, why don't you? We need them.
