Vancouver Co-op Radio Host Guy MacPherson interviews a multitude of comedians from across Canada and the US.
REWIND: What's So Funny? with guest Bob Saget
It's been a tough calendar year, with the deaths of former WSF? guests Norm Macdonald and Matt Billon. We lost another one this weekend when Bob Saget passed away at the age of 65. He was a super guy and we were lucky to have him guest with us in September 2020.
What's So Funny? with guest Eddie Izzard
Eddie Izzard stops by the What's So Funny? virtual studio on her Canadian tour. We talk about the real names of Biblical characters, making humanity great again, gender fluidity, and gaming the system.
Norm Macdonald repeat from 2012
Norm Macdonald was just the greatest guest... and the greatest guy. In this, our most-listened-to episode, we had a semi-serious (okay, almost completely serious) 1.5 hour conversation ranging from family to science to God to comedy to literature to death to cancer. Some of it is especially hard to listen to now that he's gone. Recorded in 2012.
What's So Funny? with guest Darcy Michael
Darcy Michael makes his sixth appearance on the program. The break-out star of the Halifax Comedy Festival explains Tik Tok to us, talks about his High School Sucked podcast, we discuss who'd make the best Jeopardy host, and the host promises to get a new computer.
What's So Funny? with guest Jacob Samuel
Jacob Samuel has had a great year, Covid be damned. His album, Horse Power, was nominated for a Juno Award. We talk to him about it, jokes, Zoom, cats and dogs, and Larry Sanders. Plus we play a track from his album – it's legit funny.
What's So Funny? with guest Jackie Kashian
Jackie Kashian has us in the palm of her hand in this episode. The former Wisconite comedian and host of two podcasts dorks out on The Dork Forest, extols the benefits of Zoom standup, talks of Kinison, Rickles, Burr and Bamford, and tells us where she got her optimism from.
Liked the Norm Macdonald July 2012 interview. Good conversation. Well done
Touching Norm MacDonald
Thank you Guy for hosting the magnificent Norm! That episode is a gem.
Funny and Smart
Funny and smart criticism, interviews and chitchat with comedians. It's not "that was a great joke," but is good for a laugh and an insight to the lives of comedians (i.e., what makes the funny"). If you listen to his Norm Macdonald interview, they talk about colonoscopies and religion and it's oddly humorous. Keep it up Mr MacPherson.
