Dork on Dork Dialog with Jackie Kashian. I am interested in whatever dorky thing you want to talk about.

My guests were my traveling companions for the last couple weeks in Africa and the Middle East. Vargus Mason was the author of this tour and then got hurt and had to fly home before the end of the tour. So we're debriefing him a bit... April Macie and, not on this episode, our other traveling companion, Alycia Cooper kept on. Because, in the military, it's "no one left behind." In comedy, it's "sure. We’ll go on." and then, belatedly, "the show must go on." Alycia will have rebuttal time when I’m in NY or figure out to record via Skype!

 

Disclaimer… I express opinions about other people’s standup comedy and, as we know… all comedy is awesome and everyone’s journey is fantastic. But podcasts are people occassionally saying things they regret. When it was live there was all kinds of that... it seems cheating to edit it out. So, welcome to a less attractive part of my brain. I just love some things that were said OFF stage that I wish, and I get to wish, would be said ON stage.

 

Thanks for listening. Take care of each other out there, Jackie

    Too exhausted, for far less adventurous reasons, than you and your guests to make too many comments at the moment, but a fascinating discussion (if sometimes the slightest bit opaque, at least temporarily, to someone not on the circuit you weathered). Good to know why the tent abuse seemed like a valid option, and sorry it was (emotionally) necessary...fwiw, the guy playing the Diane Lane inamorato (well, the female form is correct, anyway) goes by Olivier Martinez, perhaps bowing to Sir LO. I gather he was in UNFAITHFUL, along with Richard Gere, but seem to recall them as ill-defined images that might distract one, however temporarily, from Diane Lane in that rather bad film (wherein Lane's performance is actually good enough to almost triumph over the script, quite aside from how easy she is to watch as a Rilly Pritty person).
