“You Were Born for This Role” with Nikki Smith

8/13/2018
More
“That person is a natural” is the thing you want to say when you are casting someone into a role. It is best when it is effortless, when you can’t tell the person from the role they are playing. That’s what you want as a casting director… unless you are casting for “Se7en”. Sketch Comedy Podcast show is an independent and completely improvised sketch podcast that is based on conversations with interesting people like YOU! We welcome all suggestions, and we are always looking for new and...

Conversation with Nikki Smith | Improvisor, Not-Good Advice Giver and Suicide Preventer

8/6/2018
More
This episode’s guest was so much fun to talk to. Nikki Smith is an improvisor, theater director, gives really bad advice on life (http://bit.ly/SCPSnikkitellsyou), plays the accordion (badly) and is now helping people who are having a hard time in life get through to the next day (hopefully very well). What I liked best about chatting with Nikki was how much we are similar… we are drawn to improv because we do not like to learn lines, we are both scatterbrained enough that we can’t settle...

“Ted Tudor’s Gallant Galloping Horse Contessa’s First Time on a Movie Set” with David Trotter and Tripp Fuller

7/30/2018
More
It is hard not to get excited by the glitz and the glamor of a movie set. There are the cameras, which you know are capturing the magic happening in front of them, there are the stars prepping for their craft, there are the film crew making sure everything is running smoothly and on-time and let’s not forget the most important, the caterers. And then there are the extras and the occasional animals that are involved, that bring death and destruction to all. Featuring David Trotter...

Conversation with David Trotter and Tripp Fuller | Progressive Christians and Creators of “The Road to Edmond” Movie

7/23/2018
More
I’m not going to lie, I had red flags. I watched “The Road to Edmond” and realized that it was a Christian movie about 15 minutes in. Let’s face it, I am a heathen and it’s a little intimidating when one is facing two theologians, one of which has a “Dr.” In front of his name. Fortunately, the movie was good, and not just good as in “it’s a Christian movie” good, but actually entertaining and endearing. More fortunately, David and Tripp are incredibly great guys and are progressive...

“Hey Dude, Unleash Your Inner Feminist, Yo!” with Tammy Leitzel

7/9/2018

We are truly embarking on a new path for the human race. At no time in our history has there been an opportunity for closing the gender and race gaps, for creating an environment of love and peace and equality… wait, who is president again? Well, shoot… maybe in the next 100 years. Featuring Tammy Leitzel, who uses bits of her fantastic material from her “Femessence” program in the sketch. You can find out more by going to https://tammyleitzel.com and take her 7-day challenge! Sketch...

Conversation with Tammy Leitzel | Former Amish Stripper*

7/2/2018
More
Okay, admittedly, the description of this guest is a little misleading. Tammy Leitzel is a former Mennonite, not Amish (and not really that connected), and she has performed stripping since that time, not during that time. Also, she was never a Mennonite past the age of 18, so maybe that isn’t entirely truthful either… I took liberties, but that is one hell of a headline! Tammy helps women become playful with their sexuality through exotic dance and pushing each woman’s individual...

"Equal X-portunity" with Miles Stokes

6/25/2018
More
Diversity is good. In fact, there are few times that having diversity is really bad. It’s good in your diet, to keep things working properly, it is good in education so that people can learn different things, it is good in superhero teams, because different powers can yield different results… about the only place diversity is really bad is in sexually transmitted diseases. Featuring Miles Stokes of the “Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men” Podcast. Disclaimer: I royally mess up in this...

Conversation with Miles Stokes | X-plainer of X-things

6/18/2018
More
Miles is one half, along with Jay Edidin, of the outstanding “Jay and Miles X-plain the X-men” podcast which explores the ins and outs of the increasingly convoluted and incredibly hard-to-follow X-Men comic book universe. Since Marvel and DC are basically the Bulfinches and Aesops of the modern age, understanding the stories and their impacts on our culture is becoming increasingly important and Jay and Miles do a beyond amazing job of helping us unravel their stories in a fun and...

“It’s a Marathon Production” with Nate Dern

6/11/2018
More
Twenty-six grueling miles of body punishment and for what? Glory? Accomplishment? Awesome selfies? Who knows what it is about marathons that attract us, but we love the spectacle of watching people in incredible shape make their bodies perform at their peak performance and watch as they poop themselves, collapse and nearly die as they cross the finish line. This sketch was performed with Nate Dern. You can catch the conversation where this sketch came from here!:...

Conversation with Nate Dern | Host of Comedy Central’s “The Creators Program”

6/4/2018
More
Remember that show called “Beauty and the Geek” where they took incredibly hot but maybe not mentally fit women and incredibly geeky and not-necessarily socially amicable men and put them in the same house together to see how they interacted and offered a boatload of money to the final two people that did the best? Nate Dern wishes you didn’t. Mainly because Nate Dern is now an accomplished author, was a senior writer for “Funny or Die”, is the director of content at the upcoming KnewQ...

Watch the sketch on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/rp9Rr1-lc2M Mysteries. We love them because they give us something our human minds crave... solutions. We love movies and television that explores mysteries, crime mysteries, medical mysteries, alien mysteries... we are fascinated by what we might uncover! Sometimes those mysteries uncover amazing secrets that will help benefit the world or bring someone to justice, other times we might wish we could put the cork back on the bottle......

Conversation with Shannon Milliman | Failed Supernova and Sensible Job Owner

5/21/2018

What exactly is a Failed Supernova? Well, a supernova is when a star collapses and releases all of it’s stored energy outward disintegrating everything in its event horizon… so being a failed supernova might be okay! I think what Shannon Milliman, this episode’s guest, means by it is she had the perception as a child she was going to be this incredible force of power and would have a huge impact on the world and instead works a relatively normal job for a normal amount of time and goes...

Well, whatever, it isn't going to be global powers, it will be technology powers. Apple vs. Google, US vs. Amazon or something ridiculous like that. Right now, the war raging in most 14 year old brains is which is better, Xbox or Playstation? Maybe it's more than just games we should be considering... Featuring Zombie Author Joseph "Zombie" Zuko.

5/8/2018

Joseph “Zombie” Zuko is the author of “The Infected” series of novels that tell of the exploits of Jim, his wife Karen, and a very large cast of characters in the days after the zombies attack. I know some of you probably read this as Joe himself was a zombie which is inaccurate, but for dramatic effect let’s just pretend that is the truth. My brains were still intact after this conversation because, according to every ex-girlfriend I have ever had, I sit on my brains because of where they...

"Forward Thinking In France" with Sébastien Roger de Nuñez | Multi-Multi Lingual Improvisor

5/1/2018

Language is tricky. Something said in one language might have the intention of sounding like something else in another language, but the subtleties of each word do not always translate from one to the other. It's a challenge that some people take on and can travel the world and experience new things. For others, it makes it really convenient that there is fast food internationally. Make sure to listen to the end of the episode, where you will hear Sébastien and Stuart recording the sketch...

That’s a pretty amazing feat, especially since most of the people I know can’t not even complete English sentences not too good.

Ronny Pascale has been bi-coastal and is really focused on poop. I don’t know why those two things are connected, or why this makes Ronny interesting, but it was a fun conversation to be sure! Ronny has the podcast “Shit Show: The Poopcast” (The colon is pronounced) where he has conversations with other comedians about bowel movements. Yup, you heard that right… the show is reaching new heights for content. Actually, Ronny and I do not discuss our excremental adventures (although, we all...

1/21/2018

Tony Starlight is no stranger to anyone who lives in Portland, OR. His name is synonymous with musical dinner theater and entertainment, an art form that is incredibly relevant yet is not terribly common. Tony’s shows are entertainment extravaganzas: there are songs, jokes aplenty, more songs, drinks, a delicious dinner, songs, dessert, and more songs. Everything in the show is choreographed, and Tony will have themes for the show, such as “Dead Legends” for Halloween or his incredibly...
