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 158: Tim Hawkins

[display_podcast]I am overjoyed this week to come to you directly from funnyman Tim Hawkins’ bus at 1:00 am! Traveling between the Dakotas, we are living out a country song and swapping stories. But, Tim doesn’t just tell stories so much as he orchestrates them, adding interesting musical soundtracks from a harmonica, pan flute, or any other musical instrument he may find lying around. This weaving together of music and comedy comes from his youthful introduction to the likes of Weird Al Yan … [Read more...]

The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 114: 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 110: Grandparent Rules, Bob Smiley & Tim Hawkins

[display_podcast] This week’s show comes from the stage of the Carnival Dream’s Burgundy Lounge! My good friend, comedian Tim Hawkins was a terrible apartment maintenance worker. So terrible that he got fired for not being able to properly rake leaves from the apartment complex’s sand volleyball court or turn rocks over so that they didn’t appear overly weathered… oh, those extremely complicated tasks!  But, in an odd twist of fate, the woman who fired him back then now works as Tim’s administr … [Read more...]

The Darens Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 95: Car Wash, Mike Goodwin & Tim Hawkins

[display_podcast]From ABCNews Sacramento: A California driver may have set a record for fastest car wash. A 94-year-old man is caught on camera speeding through the Quick Quack Car Wash in Sacramento at an estimated 40 miles per hour. If you think about it, this would save a lot of time! It actually reminds me a lot of how my kids would bathe themselves – “I did take a shower… see? My foot’s a little wet still!”The man paid for his car wash, but claimed he could not take his foot off t … [Read more...]
