The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 151: Wisconsin Cities, Joshua Jordan & John Crist

[display_podcast]I was driving through Wisconsin recently, and I discovered that if you are not a Wisconsin native, the names of their cities make very little sense… and this is coming from a guy from Minnesota!For example, Plover, Wisconsin is not named after the Plover bird. No, I learned this lesson whilst driving 26 mph through the city of Plover in an area where the speed limit was 25, when a cop pulled next to me and yelled, “PL-OVER!”It was an expensive lesson.Wauwatosa, Wi … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 138: Clothes Explosion, Karen Bankhead & Comedian Nazareth

[display_podcast]With Spring in the air, or as we call this time of year in Minnesota, “Sorta-Summer”, my kids end up wearing their winter clothes while outside, but it’s much warmer indoors. So, whenever they come home, they don’t just shed their coats and winter pants when they enter the doorway… there is a clothing explosion!“We’re home!” BOOM!! (coats fly behind the sofa, there’s a tasseled beanie impaled into to the wall).It’s truly frightening. And then, later, not a single one … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 77: Candy Is Named Wrong, Stacy Pederson & Brad Stine

[display_podcast] I think we need to start over and rename just about every candy product currently on the market. For instance, Snickers – while delicious, the name implies that there may be a secret ingredient in there that the developers don’t want us to know about; Mars Bar – are we really supposed to trust the ingredients that aliens from outer space placed in these snacks?; Babe Ruth – this candy bar tastes like a fat, sweaty baseball player (mmmm… good); Charleston Chew and Big League Che … [Read more...]

An Examined Life 3: Jeffrey Jena

[display_podcast] Comedian Jeffrey Jena, one of my closest friends on the planet, joins the show as we reminisce about our hazy early days in stand up comedy – which leads directly to memory loss due to getting older and frying brain cells when we were younger. You see, where some people have problems remembering things and simply blame it on a “senior moment”, Jeffrey and I know that there are entire sections of our cranium that were burned out at a Led Zeppelin concert in the mid-70’s. But h … [Read more...]

An Examined Life with Jeff Allen 17: Ron Pearson

[display_podcast] One of my favorite comedians, fellow “Apostle of Comedy”, world-champion juggler, and good friend - Ron Pearson - joins the show this week. Together, along with our host, Ryan Mischler, we talk about parenting, bringing up teenage girls and Family Game Night. By the way, according to Ron, Family Game Night sucks when you get teamed up with the five-year-old of the family. He doesn’t contribute to the effort in any way at all. He’s like the letter “K” in knot, the French in any … [Read more...]
