Whew! It’s the live episode recorded at Die Laughing!
We sat down with Sean Monaghan in front of a live audience at 2:30 in the morning and recorded a show while raising money for Fearless Comedy Productions. The good news is, we raised a bunch of money thanks to the generosity of listeners like you. The bad news is, we did it by taking shots of horrible boozes. The worst news is Matt had to do a half hour of standup 30 minutes later.
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?
Hey kids! This week we have Amanda Luke, Marketing Director of Fearless Comedy Productions, on the show with us to share boxed wine, cupcakes and laughs. Do we talk about Die Laughing? Fuck yes we do! Tune in to learn all about the show and what’s in store during our first ever LIVE podcast recording!
In all sincerity, please come see the show if you are local, and tune in to the live stream if you are one of our out-of-town friends. It means the world to us.
We’re back from CONvergence with a show full of nerdery. We also have the triumphant return of the lovely and talented Engineer Corwyn! We talk all about the Fearless Comedy party room, Vilification Tennis, Matt’s drunken assholery, our favorite moments and more. We mention the possibility of a couple of extra interviews that Salsa conducted over the weekend, but as of now, we’re having file conversion issues. We’ll see if we can’t get it sorted out by next week. Check out some of the photos after the fold.
We are joined by the lovely and talented Tim Wick this week. You may know Tim from Vilification Tennis. Or The Dregs. Or Big Fun Radio Funtime. Or Geeks Without God. Or Fearless Comedy Productions. Or the soon to be released A Reel Education. Hell, by the time I finish typing this there will prolly be some other project he’s involved in.
Anyway, we had a blast recording this one and we give you guys a bunch of details about the forthcoming Fearless Comedy room party at CONvergence. If you are attending the convention, make sure you stop by and say hello.
Lastly, we talk about former guest Joseph Scrimshaw’s new kickstarter, which you can find here.
So, we gotta say, Porter and Steve and Trampy did a bang up job taking the reins for an episode. We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.
That being said, our egos wouldn’t let us give up the show for long and your lovable regular hosts are back in the saddle again. To make things even sweeter, we are joined this episode by the cast of the Geeks Without God podcast! Nick, Molly and Tim spend some time talking shit with us, and we discuss how our various New Year’s Eves went.
Happy Halloween everybody! Jena, Matt and Gretta took the kids trick or treating last night. Austin looked the scariest when passed out on Gretta’s shoulder:
Anyway, we spend some time telling you guys about the new theater production company we are involved in creating, Fearless Comedy Productions. You may have noticed the new banner on the website, the Fearless website goes live this weekend. More to come on that soon.
