We’re joined by the lovely and talented Duck Washington this week! Duck is what is known as a legitimate actor. He’s also a Vilifier. We’re amazed someone can be both of those things.
Duck is a busy guy, he’s one of the producers of The Encyclopedia Show, which you’ve heard us talk about on the show before. He’s worked with CONvergence for years now writing and performing in the opening and closing ceremonies. He’s done Fringe Festival shows, including one that was made into a movie:
You’ll be able to see Duck in You’re Making That Up! at HUGE next Tuesday (along with Matt). Hell, Duck is writing the Fall theatrical production for Fearless Comedy as well.
Lastly, Die Laughing approacheth! For those of you who want to support the kinds of comedy we do, there is a chance to have your donations go even further if you donate before the event:
Our board of directors will match up to $500.00 worth of donations received before the event begins. You can go to www.dielaughingmarathon.com to donate and watch the live stream of the event when it begins on March 6th.
Lauren Haven returns to the podcast this week as we begin our ramp up to Die Laughing! Lauren is the Managing Director of Fearless Comedy Productions and a member of Apex Predators, the Fearless Comedy improv team. What we’re saying here is she’s cool and funny.
We discuss Jena’s trivial weekend, Matt starting therapy, and Salsa prepping for Febtoberfest as well. Join us, won’t you?
This week we learn that Matt actually left the house a couple times, Jena started her new job, and Salsa played some board games. All that clearly pales in comparison to THE TRIUMPHANT RETURN OF ST. MANNA THE DESTROYER TO THE FAST FIVE!
This week the three of us discuss Matt’s trip to the rodeo and eat some bugs Suzi gave him, Salsa’s weekend at MONDO and curiosity about meat-filled deserts, and Jena’s disappointing trip to the Winter Carnival and book recommendation.
Feel Better Friends makes custom dolls for children with long-term illnesses that are in the child’s own likeness. They are looking for additional crafters all over the world to help them in their endeavors. Take a moment and take a look, it’s really cool.
As we mention on the show, Matt has been making the rounds of other local podcasts lately.
If you want to listen to Matt talk about relationships and stuff, check out his appearance on Poly in the Cities!
We are joined this week by the lovely and talented Jon Stark of the Arts and Crass podcast which you can find on iTunes and Stitcher. Jon also has a one man show called The Insufferable Spiteness of Beaver at the Bryant Lake Bowl February 5th, 6th, 12th, & 13th. Follow the link to order tickets online. We talk about all kinds of nerdy cartoon stuff this week, comedy, and things to do with your ashes after you’re dead.
Speaking of comedy, you can find the clip of Bill Young’s “Dinner at SuperAmerica” bit Jena was referring to here. (I tried to embed it, but the player wasn’t working right when I did.
Oh yeah! Speaking of Stitcher, we’re on that now. For all you youngsters.
This week Matt is back and no one cares! We’re also joined by Jennifer of the Poly in the Cities podcast. We dork out for a while then get into how ethical non-monogamy works. Turns out, we couldn’t cover it all in one episode. I guess that’s prolly why Jennifer and her co-hosts do a whole podcast about it.
Matt will be a guest on Poly in the Cities on Friday the 30th of January. If you have a question you would like answered while Matt is a guest on their show, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with it, or go the the Poly in the Cities website and use their anonymous question submission form.
Charles Knutson joins us this week for a delightful conversation that asks the hard hitting questions like, who would you choose to replace Bill Murray in Groundhog’s Day to change the tone of the movie? Also, how much fun does an ARG/Ingress/assassins-style game set in the Minneapolis skyways sound like? Right? We also answer one of the toughest Fast Five questions yet.
This week we fall down a bit of a videogame rabbit hole. We blame the mind control of the ever-mighty Steam Sale. We also talk about owning vs. renting and mail carrier etiquette. Plus, weigh in on some important issues about words!
