My guest this episode is Jimmy Pardo, host and creator of the fantastic podcast Never Not Funny. He's such a fascinating comic that it took most of the show for me to get to the fact that he’s a Fantasy Baseball dork. Fantasy Baseball seems to be that you get a list of players and you WATCH their stats for the season. Fascinating! You will note how much I like Jimmy because I won’t let him talk. I beginning to see it as a symptom of something.

 

I sound like I still have some sort of head infection, don’t I? Boo. I had an ear infection and it’s moved to my sinuses (as my acupuncturist said - English not her first language – though MUCH better than my Cantonese, “behind your face is one piece of meat.” i.e. the infection has spread). My Ear, Nose and Throat doctor tested my hearing and I’ve lost 30% in my right ear. But he doesn’t know what to do about it. His recommendation? That I send a video to SNL to audition for them. i.e. I need a new ENT guy.

 

Topics covered:

Morning Radio: Bob & Tom, Dudley & Bob (Austin, TX), Todd and Tyler, Jim Johnson (Detroit), Dick Purtan,

Boy Scouts

Musicals: Spring Awakening, RENT, Gnomio and Juliet, Ponyo
Television and Movies: Flipper (old MOVIE) Flipper (old SHOW) Flipper (new adventures) High Society, Holiday Inn

Chromeo – MUSIC! …of a sort. The video for Hot Mess feels very 1983.

Jimmy’s website and links to his schedule and merch at the top of the page

 

I like that we think we’re done at 59min and then… we go for another 9 minutes… Because I like Jimmy Pardo. I hope you do too.

My guests this episode are James Urbaniak, (follow on twitter @jamesurbaniak) actor and the voice of Dr. Venture on The Venture Bros. and Murray Valeriano comedian and comedy writer (follow on twitter @murrayv). We talked the heck out of old Hollywood and acting. Animation and children’s music were lightly touched upon but the works of Charles Laughton were full on dorked out upon to the point that I’ve added some movies to my Netflix Queue.

 

Charles Laughton (Ruggles of Red Gap has been added, a fitting sequel to my OTHER Laughton experience.

New York comics Rob Stern (twitter @actionstern) and Abigoliah stop in to talk about their obsessions with Action Figures, Video Games, Dinosaurs and Yoga. And Abigoliah’s Mom let her change her name when she was about 13. How many of us can say THAT? They have a podcast called Pass the Carrots that I am going to be on at some point and, on that, they talk about stand up comedy – a LOT.

Andrew Deutsch and David Nett are this week's guests. They've made a dorky dorky show for the internet called GOLD - an RPG web series. http://www.goblinsandgold.com/csp/gold/.

We talked Dungeons and Dragons and Board Games and, in the end... found that another episode of TDF is going to be needed to talk about comic books and FONTS... the exciting world of Kerning MUST be examined!

Reccomended reading from David, George RR Martin - Game of Thrones and listening from Andrew, The Sountrack to How to Train Your Dragon. Which I cannot find for sale. Awww.... ask Andrew on Twitter (@rollandglass) and then for fun... @davidnett is on twitter too! Fun! I'm in Minneapolis this week at ACME Comedy Company Downtown if you're around. Come say hi.
