005 – The Middle of the Set Recordings
Canadian stand up comedian Tim Kubasek and producer Elaine Elrod got together at The Cave Music studio and had a freewheeling chat in which Tim tried out some of his newer comedy material. This is mostly stuff that he has never performed. This is how a baby joke is born, and each time a comedian performs a new joke it is honed and eventually perfected. As Tim explains, a common strategy among comedians is to introduce new material in the middle of their set. Hence our title for this episode, “The Middle of the Set Recordings”. In this episode, Tim riffs about such topics as Heterosexual relationships and dating Planning his misbehaviour for when he’s famous Observations at Tim Hortons and Dairy Queen Stories from the Road Texting Truth vs. Fiction in his jokes Enjoy!
