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 168: Picky Eaters, Sara Shea & Peder Eide

[display_podcast]Thanksgiving has come and gone, and one thing that is revealed each and every year is how picky my kids are when it comes to eating. I can’t get my youngest to stop playing with his food, if my life – or his life – depended on it. As my oldest son, Producer Ethan, puts it, “It’s boring to eat. You have to sit there forever, doing nothing but chewing and swallowing.”But, my problem eater has no turned it into an art form. He is transforming mashed potatoes into Playdoh. Tu … [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.
