The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 167: Tim Hawkins

[display_podcast]Tim Hawkins is an incredibly gifted comedian, a great guy… and an amazing friend! (And, I’m not just saying that because he joins me on this week’s show.)Lately, Tim and I have been talking about a show we’ve both been enjoying – The Crown, which is basically about Queen Elizabeth’s early reign and is quite compelling. Although, while it’s similar to Downton Abbey – but everyone gets along – the niceness of it makes us wonder just how historically accurate the show is. … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 166: Escalatorgeddon & Black Jewelz

[display_podcast]I recently performed at the Hearts at Home Conference – stand up comedy for 1,400 women. There’s nothing quite like being the only guy in a room of over a thousand women… I was the very embodiment of every stupid thing their husbands, fathers and sons have ever done.And, speaking of stupid things…I sold t-shirts after my performance, and when all was said and done, I had to get the boxes of t-shirts that were left unsold (not that there were LOTS of boxes… just some t … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 157: Race Relations with Comedian Mike Goodwin

[display_podcast]It’s my extreme pleasure to be joined this week with my hilarious and always impeccably dressed dear friend, Mike Goodwin! Mike’s comedy style is like no other. As Mike puts it, he provides quite a surprise to his audiences. People don’t expect comedy from a guy in a suit and bow tie. He looks more like an African American Studies Professor than Stand-Up Comic.In fact, while it’s not his main focus, Mike does often bring up race relations from the stage. He “enlightens” h … [Read more...]

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...]
