Today I was fortunate enough to be a part of “Canada Laughs” on XM Radio. Hosted by the very funny, and all around great dude, Ben Miner; who is also in the Top 50 for Master Chef Canada! Is there anything he can’t do?
It was great because most times as a comic, you feel pressured to be funny or act like you’re on stage while you’re doing radio. Thankfully, Ben is more about just conversing with comics. Very natural, just like we were hanging out somewhere. And that somewhere just happens to be a soundproof booth with professional recording equipment.
We covered a variety of topics from art, to Sudbury, to mutual friends and a bunch of other stuff that I don’t really remember because that’s just how flow-etic the conversation was.
I was pressed for time, but I saw Ward & Al recording their show and wanted to jump in and do a “walk on,” which is where you interrupt somebody on the air for your own selfish reasons. But it’s also kind of a dick move.
Tonight is the start of the full weekend of shows at Absolute Comedy Toronto for my DVD launch of “Make It A Double.” I need to get ready and get my DVDs together, so this is a short entry, but that doesn’t make it any less special!Tags: absolute comedy, Ben Miner, Canada Laughs, Make It A Double, Sirius, Sudbury, XM Radio
