80 Interview with Andrea Jin & Ola Dada

Better (slightly) late than never! Today's episode includes two of Vancouver's best young up-and-comers, Andrea Jin and Ola Dada. At just a few years in, they've already accomplished a lot, and have much more on the way. Andrea records her album at the end of the month at Little Mountain Gallery and Ola Dada's show Blackout Comedy is part of Just for Laughs Northwest series, Best of the West. They sat down with me to talk about their beginnings, trying to stay social while doing stand-up, what drives them, and more. Check it out!

79 Interview with Jake Spencer

The first episode back! Jake Spencer is a hilarious and talented Vancouver comic making a move to Bristol in early February. As he gets in his last shows here, he took the time to sit with me and talk shop, bombing, wrestling, theater school, growing up amongst hippies, and why green means go. He's a good friend, and a good dude. Check it out!

75 Interview with Kurt Metzger (2!)

This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to once again interview one of my favourite comedians, the great Kurt Metzger. We talked about writing gigs, Sacha Baron Cohen's 'Who is America', the problems with social media and his past controversies, as well as Louis CK's return to stand-up and more. Some good news: Since recording this intro, Just for Laughs and Sirius XM have reversed their decision and channel 168 will remain 100% Canadian.

56 Interview with Kate Stables

I had the opportunity to interview Kate Stables, the multi-instrumentalist core of This is the Kit, after the band's soundcheck at the Fox Cabaret. We talk about jokes, Kate's writing process, the state of the world and our perception of it, and the issues of a small, indie band. Truly a lovely and thoughtful individual and I really enjoyed the whole experience. Enjoy.

54 Interview with Arc Iris (Zachary Tenorio Miller & Ray Belli)

I chat with Arc Iris members Zach Tenorio Miller and Ray Belli about comedy, their careers, the writing process, the state of the industry, as well as a whole bunch of other shit. We recorded outside the Central Saloon in Seattle before their show. It was really fun interview and thank you to the band. Arc Iris is an experimental dream pop band out of Providence, Rhode Island, founded by ex-The Low Anthem frontwoman, Jocie Adams. Zach plays keys and Ray drums, and they recently toured with New Zealand powerhouse, Kimbra.

24 Interview with Mike St. Jean

I sat down with the unfairly-talented multi-instrumentalist, "Two Turntables and A" Mike St. Jean to talk about the value and re-purposing of art, music, meditation and more. Oh, and taquitos, of course. He's a very heady and cool dude and I hope you enjoy it. I apologize for being a bit more wooden than usual; I was very tired. And still am. Do it up!

Pulling the Trigger 

Mark Hughes is a friend of mine; a Vancouver-based comedian, founder and producer of the Comedy Shocker, ex-convict and a former drug addict. He's been featured on CBC, Vice, and was the subject of a viral story about a little boy asking the then-Prime Minister for a gorilla. Last year, he came to my apartment…

43: Interview with Ché Aimee Dorval (2!)

The wonderful musician, Ché Aimee Dorval returns to the show for an hour-long interview. Since our last talk, Ché has been busy at work on her new album "Between the Walls and the Window," due out December 8th and it definitely shows in the singles that you can hear. We talk about music, the process of making this new record, her most recent foray into veganism, and social issues like the "Me too" campaign, sexual abuse, racism, and much, much more. I enjoyed the talk a lot, and am happy to say we have become friends in the last year. I hope you enjoy it too. Do it up!

An Interview with Kelly Carlin

In her own words, “ Kelly Carlin is a thinker, writer, talker and doodler. She’s funny, serious, silly and deep. Sometimes she wishes she were Carol Burnett, other days it’s Patti Smith, but mostly it’s Oprah Winfrey. It’s complicated.” She is also a performer and story-teller based in LA, and as you might have guessed,…

An Interview with Grace Savage

A four-time UK champion beatboxer, Grace Savage recently released her debut EP “Savage Grace,” featuring her incredible vocals, electronics, and, well…. Beatboxing. Self-effacing and thoughtful, Grace makes time in her busy schedule to work with children with special needs and teaches them how to beatbox. I’ve said ‘beatbox’ entirely too many times. It was an…
