    What's So Funny? with guest Lachlan Patterson

    Lachlan Patterson was last with us in 2005, as far as our records go. It takes a pandemic to get him back with us, but oh the fun we had. We talk about why he's glad he lost on Last Comic Standing, his worst Zoom show experiences, his reminiscences of Vancouver, he pitches his surfer caveman script, tells us why he still surfs, discusses his lady, baby pockets, and standup subtitles. Download his new special, Dark White, at lachlanpatterson.com.

    What's So Funny? with guest Bonnie McFarlane

    Bonnie McFarlane hates earnestness, but we brought out some in this episode. She started her comedy career in Vancouver and we reminisce about the old days and the lessons she learned, the comics she dated. We also talk about living under Trump, living with Rich Vos, and performing for hecklers. She's also the only guest we've had who's been sung about by The Pursuit of Happiness.

    What's So Funny? with guest Colin Mochrie

    Colin Mochrie finally makes his WSF? debut! It was fate. The improviser opens up (thanks to a bottle or two of malbec) and discusses a little politics, talks about his accidental standup set, his intellectual pursuits, explains why silence is golden, tells us which 1970s sitcom star brought him to tears, talks about acting opposite Paul Giamatti, hanging out with Donny & Marie, playing the Pyramid, doing mime, and his weirdest night in Hollywood.

    What's So Funny? with guest Michael Gelbart

    Michael Gelbart (call him Michael) returns to the program, this time with 100 percent more Sam Tonning! In our Isolation Studios, Michael makes several pledges during this hour. He also fills us in on the ins and outs of leaving an 8x10 glossy at an establishment, discusses Byron Allen and Norm Macdonald, and explains the difference between being overly picky and just discerning. He also gives us a scoop!

    What's So Funny? with guest Marcus Ryan

    Marcus Ryan joins us in the social isolation studios all the way from Wonthaggi, in the great state of Victoria, in the wonderful country of Australia. We thought it was his third or time on the show. Turns out it is his fifth. We talk about what Oz is looking like under lockdown, what his new routine is, and discuss his myriad adventures in the 60-odd nations he's visited. This episode brought to you by snooker and jailbirds.
