Podcast episode 568ish: Colin Mochrie

As social isolation continues, our guests keep on coming. This week we invite the great Colin Mochrie into our isolation studio. Everyone knows Colin from his work on Whose Line Is It Anyway? (they should bring back that show!) or from just about any other TV show made in the past 20 years. I've interviewed him five times for the newspaper, but in this chat he really opened up (thanks in large part to the Malbec he was guzzling throughout). He's talks about politics, comedy, fate, Archie Bunker, The $10,000 Pyramid, Donny & Marie, mime, and his weirdest Hollywood night.

It's a good one so you're going to want to get started right away, which you can do by clicking below. Or you can find us on your favourite podcast server. Go download us there and put us in your ears. And then give the show a much-needed rating and review. You have no choice in the matter. It's fate!

Podcast episode 567ish: Michael Gelbart

This week on the program we've got the delightful Michael Gelbart, aka... well, let's just forget about all those nicknames. We recorded a great episode with the LA-based standup and writer back in 2013, episode #327ish. Now, some 240 episodes later, he's back. The bad part about all this isolation is not getting to speak to anyone face-to-face. The good part is that our guests don't have to physically be in Vancouver anymore. Michael is still a Canadian, even if he's forsaken the land of his birth for the bright lights of the big city down south. In this episode, he tells us about being the King of Tween Sitcoms, writing a hit holiday classic, unleashing his best bits with Byron Allen, and so much more.

This show was recorded Tuesday, April 14, 2020, and here it is already for you. Work your magic to get the show in your eardrums, either by clicking below or finding it wherever you usually get your podcasts.

Podcast episode 566ish: Marcus Ryan

We're back with another episode to get you (and us) through our social isolation. We talked to old pal Marcus Ryan all the way down in Wonthaggi. Where? Google it. It looks lovely. Marcus has been with us four times previous to this one, in 2009, 2011, 2013, and 2015. Seems we forgot we were working on an every-other-year thing. He is a comedian and world traveller. I mean, in normal times. These days he's at home for longer than he has been at any one time in the past 17 years. We talk about what that's like, what his part of the world is like these days, adventures he's had in the 60-odd countries he's visited. There's also talk about snooker and jailbirds.
