What's So Funny? with guest Jacob Samuel
Jacob Samuel has had a great year, Covid be damned. His album, Horse Power, was nominated for a Juno Award. We talk to him about it, jokes, Zoom, cats and dogs, and Larry Sanders. Plus we play a track from his album – it's legit funny.

What's So Funny? with guest Jackie Kashian
Jackie Kashian has us in the palm of her hand in this episode. The former Wisconite comedian and host of two podcasts dorks out on The Dork Forest, extols the benefits of Zoom standup, talks of Kinison, Rickles, Burr and Bamford, and tells us where she got her optimism from.

What's So Funny? with guest Michael Teigen
Michael Teigen joins us from his cabin but it was the host's computer in civilization that wonked out for half the show. Still, we get unfiltered Teigen, which is always fun. He's an actor with 94 (count 'em... I did) imdb credits and a couple more coming soon. And he's a mainstay on the Vancouver improv scene. We talk about life without social media, William Shatner, Luke Perry, Bruno Kirby, and donating a kidney.

What's So Funny? with guest Jimmy Pardo
Jimmy Pardo lives up to his long-running podcast's name. The guy really is never not funny. In this episode, we relive his glory days doing community theatre, debate the term 'yacht rock', inform him on some great Canadian bands, draw a connection between Woody Allen and Chekov, discuss the proper way to hold a bass, and talk about his smart mouth in high school.

What's So Funny? with guest Sean Lecomber
Sean Lecomber has been with us from his hotel room, the host's car, and now from the comfort of his home in Alberta. He doesn't care how you pronounce his name. The stay-at-home dad talks about what he has in common with Ricky Gervais, Derek Edwards, and Amy Schumer, and why he prefers doing a podcast to doing standup. And more, of course.

What's So Funny? with guest Peter Kelamis
Peter Kelamis was last with us in 2010. We know him mostly as a standup comic but most of his work these days comes from acting. We talk about how Greek he is, Hallmark movies, voice acting, cosplay, Robin Williams, and Dane Cook.

What's So Funny? with guest Jon Dore
Jon Dore becomes the first guest of 2021 (we're a little late getting started). And what a great guest he is. He speaks with us from his home in Juneau, Alaska. He's here to shill his new TV program called Humour Resources with Jon Dore on CBC, but we also talk about his job in a butcher shop, his best memory at the Ottawa Bluesfest, his similarities to Chris Elliott, and we relive an old tweet of his.

What's So Funny? with guest Todd Van Allen
Todd Van Allen isn't above any pub in this episode. Todd is the host of one of the longest-running podcasts in the country, but we clear up that it isn't THE longest-running (ahem). We talk about butterflies, magic, cable access stardom, math, ICQ, voice-over work, and approaching celebrities.

What's So Funny? with guest Brian Aylward
Brian Aylward is big in Asia. But at 6-3 and 260 pounds, he's pretty big in all 28 countries he performed in. We speak to him from his home in Bangkok where he is convalescing from a scary motorcycle accident. The Newfoundlander and former Canadian Comedy Award winner has a new special, aptly titled Big in Asia, which he filmed in front of locals in Mongolia.

What's So Funny? with guest Dylan Rhymer
Dylan Rhymer, the old man of comedy, returns to the program in his 25th year of doing standup – even if he didn't do a whole lot of standup this past year. But he's okay with that. In this episode, we talk about Friday the 13th, watching movies all day and night for charity and fun, various other scary movies, his uncanny hack impersonations, and his State of the Week satire site. This episode is with 50 percent less Sam Tonning!

What's So Funny? with guest Kenny Robinson
Kenny Robinson is on the road again, bringing his special brand of blue comedy to the socially-distanced comedy clubs around the country. Yet he very thoughtfully censored himself in this episode. We talked about his early years in Chicago and Winnipeg, his brushes with racism in Canada, thoughts on a young Arsenio Hall, cheap millionaires trying to save eight bucks., and working swingers conventions.

What's So Funny? with guest Mike Wilmot
Mike Wilmot returns 13 years after his first appearance on the show. It's a new Uncle Mike now. He's lost a ton of weight, but is as filthy (and funny) as ever. We had a lot of fun on this one talking about lightweight drinkers, industry showcases, fears, Pete Tong, and, of course, his father's penis. Recorded September 22, 2020.
77 minutes | Sep 10, 2020
What's So Funny? with guest Bob Saget
Bob Saget is a prince of a man. He took time out of his busy (no really!) quarantine to talk to us. We even made him late for his own podcast, "Bob Saget's Here For You." In this episode, we talk about him forgetting me but remembered a bad review he got in 1978 from the Toronto Star – and the reviewer's name. We also chat about his penis, he tells stories of Richard and Rodney (Pryor and Dangerfield, natch), and my brush with greatness: Mrs. Miller.

What's So Funny? with guest Ian Bagg
Ian Bagg last joined us a decade ago, when he was deported from America and had to slum it in his home province for six weeks. He's back safely ensconced in Southern California . In this episode we talk about his early days in New York (and getting animated on Dr. Katz) and even earlier days getting started in Vancouver. Also doing crowd work at drive-in shows and abusing cyclists at beach shows. Recorded August 20, 2020.

What's So Funny? with guest Shirley Gnome
Shirley Gnome marks her fifth appearance on What's So Funny?, but first remotely. The songstress has always played for us in studio in the past, and she doesn't disappoint this time, either, offering us two live songs. And we talk about depression, hecklers, Nickelback, and cunnilingus.

What's So Funny? with guest Jeremy Hotz
Jeremy Hotz has been miserable on-stage for 30 years, and miserable off-stage for his whole life. But boy is that misery funny. Hotz, who's been living in LA the last 23 years, is one of Canada's best standup comics. In this episode, we talk about being a curmudgeon, murder, and Ernest Shackleton.

What's So Funny? with guest bbno$
bbno$ is a rapper, not a comedian. But his songs are pretty funny. They make you want to open up TikTok, point your camera at yourself, and start dancing. Millions do that, anyway. Some of us have no rhythm. But we have a fun chat with Baby No Money, aka Alex, aka Gucci.
