Steve Goodie with a humorous tune about one
of the most boring racing events out there.
He makes it sound pretty mundane, which, of
course it certainly is.
Seriously, how can you call it racing when you
never make a right hand turn?!
Mess with the drivers a little, make them go
Clockwise around the track, I’ll bet the passenger
side perspective messes them right up!
I wonder if UPS drivers watch NASCAR in awe.
I wonder how many people will get that joke…

Constitutional Peasants

One of the finest scenes in all of the Monty Python flicks.
As smart as anything they’ve ever done, and that is
saying something.
Michael Palin, Terry Jones, Graham Chapman, and
Terry Gilliam loving the filth and chewing the scenery.
Help, help I’m being repressed has been a standard oration
for yours truly since this movie came out.
True comedic genius…

Mitch Hedberg 1998

This was right smack in the middle of my Just for
Laughs run in Montreal.
I hit that festival every years from the early 90’s
until they closed the border, a sad day indeed
for many reasons.
The Galas are always superb, the line-up is vast
and varied, this one had Mitch Hedberg in it.
Not one of the late, great comedian’s best shows
but it isn’t bad at all.
He was not a story teller, his strength was the
odd one liners he threw out.
His observations were interesting, to say the least.
An eccentric with a grand sense of humor.
We’re all a bit blurry at times…

Comedy 101 Radio Playlist 8.29.19

The last show before Labor Day!
Brings a tear to my eye, boy did it fly this year!
I threw out a few blocks that made sense.
A tribute of sorts to the late, great Kip Adotta.
He recently shuffled off this mortal coil at
the tender age of 75.
He was an interesting man, I interviewed him a
few years back (okay, many years ago) and he was
quite the character.
I played a rather obscure piece from him that
explains the origin of the capital of Thailand.
It’s corny as hell but quite funny, especially if you
are sick and twisted, like yours truly.
A topical piece by G. Xavier Robillard.
A magnificent piece by Paul Frees.
A lot of new material this week.

The is one of the first comedy sketches from The

From the perspective of prepubescent kids, with
all the stereotypical fixin’s!
These folks are the cream of the top, certainly on
the same shelf as Monty Python.
Canada has produced some great comedy over the years.
This is no exception…
