Sept. 29: Brian Regan

Got a real special episode airing tonight. I got a chance to speak to Brian Regan when he was in town a few weeks ago. I've interviewed him via telephone a few times over the years for the Georgia Straight, but this was the first time we met. He agreed to sit down for What's So Funny? for half an hour backstage prior to his show at the Chan Centre. What a great guy. My challenge was not to tread the same old topics he always gets asked about. Sure, you might have heard some of this before, but maybe there's some new info to put into the world, too.

Since we spoke for only 34 minutes, I decided to intersperse the conversation with clips from his act to fill up the hour. I tried to make the clips semi-relevant to the conversation, too, so I think there's a nice flow to it. (As an added bonus, there's even a short excerpt from the late Dennis Wolfberg, who we spoke about.)

We were given a very echoey room next to his dressing room so we sound like we're speaking from on high, but you'll get used to it.

As always, we hit the air at 11 pm (or minutes thereafter) on CFRO, 100.5 FM in Vancouver. You can also streamline it from any point on the globe at
