The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 173: John Branyan

[display_podcast]One of the most powerful voices of the internet and the entire world of media joins the show this week… comedian John Branyan! (seriously… if you Google him, his name actually shows up!)Not only does John make people laugh all around the country, but he also takes on culture, stands firm in his Christian faith and doesn’t mince words. Which is difficult when people who disagree with him take him on. Yet, John is perpetually filled with grace and panache… as he volleys wit … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 172: My Birthday, Dustin Nickerson & Stephen B

[display_podcast]I celebrated yet another birthday last week. Thank you all for the Facebook messages, Tweets, texts, sky writing and other well-wishes! One email that I received seemed to stand out from all the others, though. It came from my buddy, Ken Davis. Fans of the show may remember that Ken got me and several of our comedian friends lost in the woods a couple months ago. Now, Ken just turned 70, so that may explain his birthday salutation, but nevertheless, this is how it … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 171: Mike Goodwin

[display_podcast]My buddy Mike Goodwin calls into the show this week – a man on the mend.Recently, Mike thought he was Michael Jordan instead of Michael Goodwin. Then, suddenly, unsolicitedly and unpredictably, Mike’s Achilles tendon reminded him who he was. And, according to Mike’s doctors, at a certain age, they don’t even repair Achilles injuries anymore. “Sorry, sir. If you were younger, you’d be worth doing surgery on. But, since you’re so old, you’re just going to have to limp arou … [Read more...]

[display_podcast]Merry Christmas!!Every year, Christmas makes me feel like a kid again. In fact, years ago, I was a kid. And, as a kid, my mom would ask us to circle items in the JC Penny catalog in order to give her gift ideas of what we wanted. Well, I wanted everything.I’d circle toys, swimming pools, draperies… EVERYTHING. I think the only thing in the whole catalog that wasn’t circled was on page 918 – cologne. I could even find a use for a Diaper Genie (disposing of any radishe … [Read more...]

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...]
