  • Episode 194!

    Hello! The lovely and talented Tim Wick joins us this week for his three-peat appearance on the podcast to talk about the Fringe Festival and all kinds of wacky theater hijinx! As you have grown to expect, we find a few distractions along the way, but we have a ton of fun. Speaking of distractions, Salsa went camping for the weekend and found his new choice in Mariokart:

    Blue shell this bitch!

    As I mentioned earlier the MN Fringe Festival is gearing up and that means there’s all kinds of wacky shit to see! The best way to keep track of what shows happen when and where is on the MN Fringe Festival website. For instance, there are Jena’s shows, And Still They Move or Fringe Orphans 3: The Legend of Orphans Gold. Or Tim’s shows, Jumpin’ Jack Kerouac, Power Point Karaoke, and Top Gun: The Musical. (Did we mention is has a Kickstarter?) Or Fearless Comedy Productions Fringe Sponsorship shows, First Draft Last Draft by previous guest Kyle Dekker and All Night Radio by David Walbridge.

    Salsa is Stage Manager for Dick & Fart Jokes in the Key of F.

    Matt is also in Stop Talking: The Game of Talking

    Courtney is also in Stop Talking: The Game of Talking, as well as Bump in the Night, and The Education of Murray Sanderson.

    Don’t forget to check out the first Fringe Production to be sponsored by Fearless Comedy: Jakey Emmert’s They Shoot 25-Year-Old Gay Men, Don’t They?

    Lastly, here’s why we want Salsa to paint eyebrows on his baby:

    Seriously, how great is this?

  • Episode 95!

    This week we are joined by the mighty Jen Scott! Jen Scott is a performer and improvisor extraordinaire in MPLS and taught Matt much of what he knows. Seriously, Matt would suck even more if not for Jen Scott.

    We have fun talking about Glory, a tiny bit of Fringe, and performing in general. This one was a blast, come on in, the water’s fine.



  • Episode 94 – Part 1!

    Once again we prove we can’t shut up and I have a two-parter for you. This week we’re joined by Pedantic Eric, the inspiration of the “knighted” game we’ve all been having so much fun with.

    Did I mention that this week the drink was lit on fire? Yeah, that might have had something to do with the not shutting up.

    Anyway, enjoy the first part!

  • Episode 70!

    Much like Oregon Trail, Matt has caught dysentery, so Jena and Salsa are forced to forge on without him. It’s noted in the episode that without Matt’s presence, Salsa is finally able to complete a thought. Continue reading  Post ID 1200
