An Examined Life with Jeff Allen: Not-So-Functional Alcoholism with Tori Taff

An-Examined-Life-Square-Icon

[display_podcast] Lawyers always say, “Don’t ever ask a question you don’t already know the answer to.” But I’m no lawyer. So, I should have consulted one when I recently asked my wife why she doesn’t listen to my podcast. Her answer? I’ve never had any women on. So, in the interest of growing my audience by at least one very important person – my bride – I have a dear friend as my special guest this week. Tori Taff and I have been friends for years, which I don’t understand how she finds the … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 91: Airport Security, Brian Bates & John Crist

dscs-itunes

[display_podcast] Adding to the list of phrases “Never to Say at an Airport”, as made famous by my friend Ken Davis: When the frustrated public speaker, aka flight attendant addressing the passengers, announces which one item is allowed in your pockets as you pass through the full-body scanner – absolutely NOTHING – not keys, cell phones, Kleenex tissues, Barbie dolls, combs, fishing lures, love letters, hate letters, dog treats, lawn ornaments, autographed pictures of Ed Asner… NOTHING! When y … [Read more...]

[display_podcast]From ABCNews Sacramento: A California driver may have set a record for fastest car wash. A 94-year-old man is caught on camera speeding through the Quick Quack Car Wash in Sacramento at an estimated 40 miles per hour. If you think about it, this would save a lot of time! It actually reminds me a lot of how my kids would bathe themselves – “I did take a shower… see? My foot’s a little wet still!”The man paid for his car wash, but claimed he could not take his foot off t … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 85: Puppet-phobia, Sara Shea & Phil Vischer

dscs-itunes

[display_podcast] Several years ago, VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer asked me to play a field reporter in his children’s show, JellyTelly. I thought this would be a great opportunity to do some work that my kids would enjoy watching over and over again. Who knows, they may even be impressed with their old man’s work! I mean, I have brought home DVD’s of my stand up routines, but they just ask to switch to Curious George, or something more their speed. So, when the JellyTelly opportunity arose, … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 84: Improv Class, Bone Hampton & Tom Isbell

dscs-itunes

[display_podcast] Several years ago, I attended Tom Isbell’s Improv Class, and it was weird. Most people who attend improv classes are actors; and actors are not like comedians. They’re happy people. I would walk in and they would be all socializing and happily talking to one another. I would just stand in the corner, cross my arms, and stare. Yet, I learned so much in that semester. These guys were remarkable! I even learned how to do “serious improv”, which I didn’t even know existed. It wa … [Read more...]
