Vancouver Co-op Radio Host Guy MacPherson interviews a multitude of comedians from across Canada and the US.
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.
What's So Funny? with guest Michael Teigen
Michael Teigen joins us from his cabin but it was the host's computer in civilization that wonked out for half the show. Still, we get unfiltered Teigen, which is always fun. He's an actor with 94 (count 'em... I did) imdb credits and a couple more coming soon. And he's a mainstay on the Vancouver improv scene. We talk about life without social media, William Shatner, Luke Perry, Bruno Kirby, and donating a kidney.
What's So Funny? with guest Jimmy Pardo
Jimmy Pardo lives up to his long-running podcast's name. The guy really is never not funny. In this episode, we relive his glory days doing community theatre, debate the term 'yacht rock', inform him on some great Canadian bands, draw a connection between Woody Allen and Chekov, discuss the proper way to hold a bass, and talk about his smart mouth in high school.
What's So Funny? with guest Sean Lecomber
Sean Lecomber has been with us from his hotel room, the host's car, and now from the comfort of his home in Alberta. He doesn't care how you pronounce his name. The stay-at-home dad talks about what he has in common with Ricky Gervais, Derek Edwards, and Amy Schumer, and why he prefers doing a podcast to doing standup. And more, of course.
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.
