Award winning comedian Brent Butt hosts a weekly comedy podcast in which he hopes each of his guests will teach him something he doesn't know, thereby making him incrementally "more smarter".
Ep.018 - Guest: JAMES HARTNETT
What a lovely and pleasant chat we had! By "we" I mean "myself and my guest James Hartnett". I also believe in my bosom that you'll have a lovely and pleasant time listening to our chat about the various things we have in common: stand-up, writing, acting, being the youngest child of slightly older parents and whether or not we got physically pounded by our older siblings.
Ep.17 - Guest: LAURENCE BROWN
Laurence Brown uses the term "Youtube sensation" as a joke, but in his case it's the truth, dammit! And I'm a fan. I had a terrific chat with him about how his online adventure came to be, why he moved from England to America, and why he has never deigned to set foot in Canada.
Ep.16 - Guest: ALLANA HARKIN
Hot off seven seasons of FULL FRONTAL WITH SAMANTHA BEE, the funny and talented Allana Harkin visits with Brent on this episode of TheButtpod, to discuss early live comedy gigs, an all-female sketch comedy troupe in the 1990s (outrageous!!!), no love in Vancouver, her push into the hairy world of directing, and her history as a fist-fighting arsonist. Fun and funny chat!
Ep.15 -Guest: MEREDITH HAMBROCK
Brent welcomes screenwriter and novelist Meredith Hambrock to the Gameroom Studio (but, like...remotely...not in person) for this fun and funny chat. A swirling variety of topics are discussed, from the structure of a story to the secret underground tunnel that connects Scotland's Loch Ness to Canada's Lake Okanagan. Wait - are you telling me it's the same monster in both places? Hey... I ain't telling you nothing!
Ep.014 - Guest: TOM BERGERON (Season 2 premiere)
After a ridiculously long hiatus, here's a fun and funny way to kick off the 2nd Season of The Buttpod! Brent sits down with TV legend TOM BERGERON to talk old showbiz, new showbiz, no showbiz, and the joys of bombing at The Emmys!
Ep.013 - Guest: ALICIA TOBIN
Brent invites comedian, writer, and multi-pod podcaster ALICIA TOBIN to the Gameroom Studio, high atop Sparrow Media Towers, to discuss superstitions, extreme weather, "Hank The Shape", her new podcast and projects, and the hilarious joys of chronic pain!
I’m so excited Brent is doing these again! They’re nice conversations between people sharing their stories and experiences. Looking forward to S2E02!
Please come back!
Please we need you these days!
Need more episodes
After binging through Corner Gas, Corner Gas Animated, the Corner Gas movie, and now the Butt Pod, I’m starting through the YouTube channel. But I sure hope there are more podcasts to come! Brent, if you ever come to Montana, my husband and I will be at the show for sure!
