The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 111: Giving Thanks with Sam Beman and Kristin Weber


[display_podcast] It’s good manners to be thankful, so we have this holiday once a year to remember to be thankful. But, why not have other “manner-related” holidays? Pleasegiving. We could have it the day before Thanksgiving, and if you don’t do Pleasegiving, you don’t get to eat Thanksgiving. Other potential holidays: OpenTheDoorForStrangersGiving, NoInteruptingConversationsGiving, ForkOnTheLeftOfThePlatesGiving, CoverYourNoseWhenYouSneezeGermsNonGiving, NoBelchingInElevatorsGiving… just a … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 110: Taking Medicine, Daniel Woodrow & Michael Jr.


[display_podcast] When my five-year-old gets the flu, he gets beyond miserable! He makes you want to cry, just from looking at him. He says he would do anything to feel better. Anything but take medicine, apparently. Because, at this point, any reasonable human being would take their medicine and enjoy the relief that God has blessed us with through modern medicine. But my son is simply not reasonable.“Wait! Does this medicine taste like the world’s finest candy?”“No. It’s going to tas … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 109: Dads Can’t Read, Nick Arnette & Peder Eide


[display_podcast] If I ever decide to read a book instead of watch TV, and my family sees me reading… they fall all over themselves, trying to put a stop to my reading. I have no idea why. They see a man reading and then, at that moment, they have to throw every single distraction humanly possible at me. Now, if a child is reading a book, it’s treated like a holy occasion. Everyone walks on tiptoe, they lower their voices. Someone may light a candle in reverence and form a choir. Someone will de … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 108: Pastor Duncan, Jacob Danielson & Happy Fun Time


[display_podcast] My pastor just celebrated 25 years at our church. Twenty-five years! He’s a real funny guy and is always making me laugh during his sermons. Unfortunately, I attend a church that is mostly Scandinavians, so I’m the only one who laughs out loud. Sudden public burst of laughter just doesn’t seem to be in our genetic make up. Nevertheless, my pastor is one of my best friends. But, he’s always frustrating me because he perpetually dresses better than I do. For instance, if I go t … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 107: Asking Manipulation, Sara Shea & John Driver


[display_podcast] I like to help my friends. I just wish they would be more deliberate in their asking for my help. Here’s what I mean: If they need my help to empty their septic tank, they should simply ask, “Hey, Daren, could you help me dig up my septic tank on Saturday?” Then I can reply, “Oh. I’m busy.” And we can get on with our lives. It’s simple. Instead, I hear (too often):“Hey, Daren… ya got any plans for Saturday?”Why?“How’s your back and leg strength these days?” … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 106: Spying, Leland Klassen & Ori Hofmekler


[display_podcast] Once again, I am joined by my great friend, David Pendleton aboard the Carnival Dream Cruise Ship!There’s a lot of spying going on in this country. We spy on other people. We spy on ourselves. I could never be a good spy. I’m a mouth-breather and I have bad allergies. This combination proved to be terrible when I tried to spy on my sister when we were kids. She’d be talking to her beautiful friends on the phone in her bedroom; and I’d sneak into the kitchen and quickly … [Read more...]
