Dec. 10: Ivan Decker

A young fresh-faced Decker.
About a week and a half ago, a Vancouver standup comic made his American network TV debut. Ivan Decker did a set on Conan, which is a big proverbial feather in his proverbial cap. Other Vancouver comedians have done late night talk show sets (Phil Hanley on Craig Ferguson, Lachlan Patterson on Jay Leno's Tonight Show, Darryl Lenox on Conan, Dino Archie on Jimmy Kimmel) but Ivan is the first one who's done it while still living and working in Vancouver. Because he still lives here, we can have him on our show again so he's here tonight and he's going to tell us all about his Conan experience, from how he got it, to the day of the show, to the aftermath.

We're on the air at 11 pm on CFRO 100.5 FM right here in foggy Vancouver town. You can livestream us at coopradio.org or find us on the TuneIn Radio app.

Dec. 3: Darryl Lenox & Garry Yuill

I don't know who I've known longer: Darryl Lenox or Garry Yuill. But I've known each for a long time. The great standup comic, Darryl Lenox, lived in Vancouver for 14 years before moving back to the United States of America, where he went on to perform on Conan and headline everywhere. Garry Yuill I knew even before he became the Vancouver franchise owner of Yuk Yuk's. How weird is that? He worked with my wife and I babysat his kid. Next thing I know he's comedy industry! Darryl has been on What's So Funny? three previous times, but only once solo. He likes company, I guess. Garry, of course, has never guested with us before. Darryl and Garry are teaming up for something I don't quite know about. I'll let them explain things tonight. It could shake things up in the Canadian comedy scene.

We're on the air in Vancouver on CFRO 100.5 FM at 11 pm. Or you could livestream us at coopradio.org. Or find us on TuneIn Radio.

Podcast episode 472ish: Shirley Gnome

I had a front row seat for the Shirley Gnome show on What's So Funny? a few weeks back. As always, Shirley arrived with guitar in hand and proceeded to entertain us for an hour. Well, we talked, too, but she even entertained then as she discussed penis art and public nudity and all that. In this hour, she played 3 or 4 songs, and we played one track off her new album, Taking It Up the Notch. Word is, her jazzy Christmas song, which we also talked about during this episode, will be out on December 8, so listen for it!

But meanwhile, listen to this. Click below or go subscribe to What's So Funny? on iTunes, Stitcher, Podbay.fm, or wherever fine podcasts are handed out like free candy.
