    Ep 203 - If I Had a (Reasonably Priced) Hammer…

    Comedy is a shaky business, so could Paula shore up her career with some metaphorical 2x4s and some good carpenter nails? We mean: Could she run a hardware store? Aaron Lutz from Lutz Hardware joins us to measure Paula’s mettle for our Career Corner. Plus, in Toni’s absence, is it a good idea to have Bonnie go it solo and give us an Oral Report on our potential new listener base in New Zealand? You’re about to find out!

Great!

This is a great podcast! Don’t do any cold opens!

mojo running ,

Brilliantly funny, if your so inclined…

Paula’s style of clever, imaginative, improvisational and irreverent humor has me laughing out loud, with every episode! But keep in mind, this is not a podcast for children. Sexual topics (generally done with restraint) and four letter words abound, as well as a disdain for certain rich people, Republican leadership, Christianity and who ever runs afoul of her temperament. Her cohost Adam Felber does a great job in keeping the show flowing while being the perfect foil/co conspirator. Toni Anita Hull adds a youthful, and at times flustered, sweet perspective on topics. And, the guest are always good! I’ve listened to over a hundred and forty episodes and I still want more!
