The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 98: Invisible Boyfriend App, Timmy Boyle, James Macneil, Evan Dunne, Jared Groenewegen


[display_podcast] So, I learned from The Guardian recently that there is an app called Invisible Boyfriend, where for a monthly fee, users can sign up and receive text messages from a “boyfriend” and thus avoid all the interrogatory questions from family members regarding why there are no suitors knocking down the door. Upon signing up, your “e-boyfriend” sends you texts on a regular basis, giving the girls (or their annoying family members) the impression that they have a relationship. The app … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 97: “The Test”, Dustin Nickerson & Taylor Mason


[display_podcast] Women are often testing their men these days. The age old “test” is when she asks him, “Do these jeans make me look fat?” And, the truth is, we men – regardless of how many times we have heard of such tests – are never prepared. It’s a lot like when we are driving along the highway on a hot summer day and running into a huge patch of ice. It’s unexpected and we don’t know how to react when the moment arrives. Think of it as “Relational Black Ice”. Experts agree that this “Rela … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 96: Hospital Stories, Dan Taylor, Dave & Brian, and Robert Paske


[display_podcast] My five-year-old son recently suffered a bout with RSV - or Respiratory Syncytial Virus – a really nasty, highly contagious bug that infected his lungs and breathing passages. We didn’t think it was that serious at first, but when he didn’t get over it for a few days, we took him to the nearby clinic. He hated it there: “When can we go home? When can we go home?!” I tried to calm him by reassuring him that we’d be home very soon… so I thought. But, after a blood test and a che … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 95: Beards, Comedian Zan & Bob Kilpatrick


[display_podcast] My oldest son recently began growing a bit of facial hair. Now, as most men know, the first couple years of beard growth consist mainly of “practice beards”. You don’t want to get very attached to them, because you shave them off quicker than it takes for them to grow in. You actually get rid of them about as fast as you cover up primer when painting a living room wall. Yet, for many men, facial hair is still very important to them. It’s hard to explain why. Perhaps its simply … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 94: Running Kids, Bob Smiley & Bob Stromberg


[display_podcast] Experts say that today’s youth do not get enough exercise, but I disagree… vehemently!  I have three boys and all they do is run.  They just sprint.  They never walk anywhere.  They never learned how.  We’ve tried to work with them for years, just teaching them to walk in a way that isn’t destructive. “Walk firmly, in a straight line.  Allow time for braking.  Assume five feet of braking time for each mile-per-hour that you are striding.  Double that on a slippery surface. In … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 93: Daren Is Sensitive, Matt Falk & John Branyan


[display_podcast] Women are often reported as wishing that their significant other were more sensitive. They want someone who will enjoy the latest Nicholas Sparks movie with them without complaining that no one is getting beat up, there are no explosions nor any robots… or exploding robots getting beat up! Yet, despite his affinity for superheroes, I am actually the sensitive type. For instance, while recently taking in a subtitled Japanese Anime feature, I found myself getting emotionally c … [Read more...]
