I’m in Ann Arbor with Fritz Milhaupt, friend of the show. He asked if I’d like to meet his friends who (with him) play trains. They are part of the Operations Road Show project, an offshoot of Rails on Wheels. They’ve been modeling the Wabash Railroad between Layfayette, Indiana and Peru, Indiana between Labor Day and Sept 25th, 1964. Yeah. They are train dorks AMONG train dorks. Yeah.

This is a HUGE show. Margaret Cho and Ian Harvie are my guests. They are comics, actors, fans of tattoos and self empowerment. Mike Ruekberg and Sarah Cohen sing and play the theme song he composed LIVE. And then Garfunkle & Oates close the show  with their fantastic music/comedy. You really missed a great live show. Or. Did. You? It’s a very musical one. Enjoy.

Dave Higgins is a hilarious actor/comic. He does a sketch old timey radio show. I talk too much. I think I dorked out at him too much. He holds his own! It’s political, it’s reminiscing, it’s great. He’s great. Enjoy.

Brian Peck is a character actor that has been in so many great movies. From Return of the Living Dead to X2, and so much more, the guy works! But I was excited because he has what has to be the best Planet of the Apes props and memorabilia collection ever. My excitement as I tour his house causes some WIND issues. It’s worth it! He’s so charming. This is so great.

John Deboer is a great comic from Minneapolis.  It’s the last ep from Acme Comedy Company’s 20th Anniversary in Minneapolis. We talk about in car automotive entertainment… for a long time. Comedy lends itself to tinkering it seems. It’s fun. Enjoy.

I TRY TO EXPLAIN CHEERS TO ANDY

(patrick's response to the bonus, "It's hilarious to me picturing the difference between you and John Deboer talking about that one Coach scene and laughing, and then Andy sitting stone-faced while he listens to the exact same story. It's like a 5-second metaphor for all of stand up comedy." True). Get the APP: iPhone or Android

Tim Slagle is a great comic from Chicago.  It’s another ep from Acme Comedy Company’s 20th Anniversary in Minneapolis. We talk mechanical things and comedy and I learn about auto part stores shortcuts!! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Pete Leeis a great silly goof of a guy. He is often mistaken for gay. He and his wife, Jamie Lee, a woman… (and not the comic Jamie Lee, a person in her own right that I'll have back on the show) are the guests. It’s another ep from Acme Comedy Company’s 20th Anniversary in Minneapolis. We talk about selling merch at shows, making films, and we riff and it gets dark. Too much info is imparted. Good luck. I had a blast; I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
