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


[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


[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...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 84: Tough Dad, Isaac Witty & Sherri Shepherd


[display_podcast] Spring has sprung, which reminds me of a story of just how tough my dad is. The worst winter I ever suffered through was the mega-storm of 1991 in Minnesota. My dad, the toughest person I have ever met, was up shoveling the roof right after the storm (God only knows why). Now, in this particular storm, we received something like nine-feet of snow. My guess is that he was afraid that if left on our roof, the snow would cause the house to collapse. But, before getting on the … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 82: Taxicabs, Leslie Townsend, Keith Alberstadt


[display_podcast] I hate taxicab meters. From the backseat of a cab, I can’t take my eyes off of them, and It’s like watching my wallet die a slow death. I sometimes feel like my gaze is the only thing keeping it from running amuck!“OK, it says $12.95 right now, but if I look away and look back, it will read $20,000. And then what? It’ll be too late to get dropped off at that point and pay less!” Plus, I think cabbies have a sense about me. They know just by looking at me that I don’t have … [Read more...]

An Examined Life with Jeff Allen: Golf, Guffaws & God with Phil Glasgow


[display_podcast] From world-renown comedian Jeff Allen:The best experience for my own comedy career came out of the Knoxville Comedy Theater, started up by my good friend Phil Glasgow, where we performed three shows a day (talk about a comedic work out)!  It forced me to learn how to hone my act into a tight, consistent performance.But when I first met Phil, I had no idea that he was a Christian.  I just knew that he had access to some of the greatest golf courses, including Augusta … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 80: Skiing, Joby Saad & Tim Clue


[display_podcast] I’ve always been attracted to downhill skiing. Mainly because I was madly in love with a skier in high school, and I thought, “She loves to ski. And if I learn to ski, she will love me.” I thought that love doesn’t come from mutual attraction, it comes from mutual hobbies. All I had to do was learn to ski and she would see past my bad haircut, my clumsiness and overall awkwardness. So, we went skiing together. Now, she had been skiing ever since she was a zygote. And I had not. … [Read more...]
