Podcast episode 219ish: Craig Campbell & Phil Nichol

What a blast I had when ex-pats Craig Campbell and Phil Nichol dropped by the studio a few weeks ago. It didn't take much to get them going. Craig is a former Vancouverite best known for being Ed the Sock's sidekick and Phil was a semi-regular on Mad TV with his former band Corky & the Juice Pigs. They both now live in jolly olde England, where comedy is king. Among an hour of highlights, the two told a cautionary tale about drinking with Mike Wilmot and railed against the PC brigade. Check it out. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll beg for more.

If you absolutely can't wait to navigate your way over to iTunes and download the episode there, just click below and it'll start filling the airwaves immediately. For some reason, the description has not been included in the last two episodes. Check for the one dated 3/14/11. (The one dated 3/9/11 is Larke Miller.)

Any thoughts on Gilbert Gottfried's earthquake jokes? I haven't heard them myself but it seems to me if the only acceptable humour is the inoffensive kind the world would be a sadder place.

On this particular episode, which predates the quake and tsunami, Craig and Phil talk about so-called offensive comedy. And in the latest episode not up yet, Paul Myrehaug talked briefly about it, since his cd is called Bad Things Are Funny.
