Portland, OR


It starts with a conversation and ends with a comedy sketch. Sketch Comedy Podcast Show starts with a conversation and ends with an improvised, comedy sketch starring the most interesting people in the world... YOU! Normal people do extraordinary things, and this show is all about uncovering what those things are and then creating comedy in the form of a sketch from it! Each episode features a 30-minute or so discussion with someone of great interest to the host, Stuart Rice, and from that conversation comes the idea that influences what the improvised sketch will be. Then, you get to hear the sketch highly produced with sound effects and really polished. After the credits roll, if you still want to listen in, you can hear Stuart and his guest record the sketch itself! Sketch Comedy Podcast Show can be heard weekly, with new episodes starting to air September 3rd!

Episode 26: Take Me to Church with Jimmy Asbell

Let me tell you about Jim Asbell. Not only is Jim one of the best people I ever had the pleasure to work with, he saved my tookus more than once and helped me realize I was probably working in the wrong place, but he is also just a fantastic human being. What makes him fantastic? Well, he is one of the last people to have polio… wait, that doesn’t make him fantastic, that just makes him have polio…. Well, he is also dying from stage IV colon cancer! What the hell am I talking about? That...

Episode 25: I Got That New-Time Religion with Jim Greenfield

Stuart invites the nororious radio host Jim Greenfield onto the podcast. Jim has been fired from the radio 7 times, which is the same amount of times that Rush Limbaugh has been fired, the biggest difference is that Rush Limbaugh earns $32M a year. Jim is also a conservative talk show host, but has decided to give up on radio and start his own podcast, called “The Jim Greenfield Show Podcast”. Let’s see if he can become the first person ever fired from his own podcast. Although Stuart...

The Sprocket Podcast (@SprocketPodcast) consists of Brock (@brockmon) and Aaron (@RdHareAmngHrses, Aaron is a bike in this… he was not very bike-like when we met, but maybe he was in disguise) . The Sprocket Podcast is a podcast about bikes, transit, life, and all sorts of good stuff in the wonderful world of Portland, OR. We had a lot of fun recording in their recording RV… I have to say I am a little jealous. We talk about all sorts of things: podcasting, Portland, management… the...

Episode 23: It’s All in the Bag with Katie BBB

Stuart invites his friend Katie BBB to the show and… holy shit it turns out great! We solve swamp ass, discuss artificial intelligence and how pissed off it will be when it awakens and realizes how much we have sexually abused them and foo foo bags… we will leave that to the episode to describe it. We then take all of that and create a sketch. Seriously, this might be @Stoopac’s favorite recording session. It was almost lost to the world, but somehow he found a way to hack his system to...

Episode 22: Wanna Join a Band? With Aaron Ryder

This week, Stuart invites his friend Aaron Ryder onto the show because Aaron Ryder is unique. Unique in a way that is delightful and refreshing. He wears two different shoes all the time. He wears a necktie regardless of whether or not he is wearing a shirt. He is not an actor, but finds his way to stages because that’s the type of guy he is. Aaron also has some AMAZING FUCKING STORIES! He shares a couple of these stories, one of which will be told on stage in this year’s “Mystery Box...

Episode 21: Foreign Culinary Delight with TJ Wichman

Stuart welcomes his friend and world traveler TJ Wichman onto the show. In his first meeting of TJ, Stuart knew that TJ was an interesting guy and he was not wrong. TJ has spent a lot of time circling the globe, knows a number of languages and has probably lived in whatever place you can imagine. TJ is also a big fan of reggae music and, quite honestly, is often the circle peg trying to fit into the square hole; but he is so disarming and interesting people are still drawn to him. Because...

Episode 20: Totally Appropriate Audition with Laura Welsh

This week brings the lovely and talented and… okay, to be honest Stuart has a little bit of a crush on this week’s guest. Here’s the story: after the episode with Kelly Guimont, who is also quite amazing, Laura Welsh liked the tweet and Stuart saw her red hair and was curious and checked out her profile for, you know, professional reasons, and noticed that she was a local actress in Portland. So, in the most non-creepy way ever he contacted her to see if she would be interested in doing...

Episode 19: There is No Cure with Alisha Holland

Alisha comes back and does a recap of 2016. We talk about people dying and how Stuart thinks it’s kind of ridiculous that people get all worked up about when someone dies. The sketch reflects how ridiculous our obsession with this is. As we get closer to the launch of Season 2 of the new Sketch Comedy Podcast Show, I offer a challenge! What is better, Apple or Google? iOS or Android? Blackberry or Windows Phone? Just kidding. Actually, here is what the challenge is: If you are an Apple...

Episode 18: Request for Leave with Tom Flynn

This was an interesting episode! What makes it interesting? Well, it was the first time Sketch Comedy Podcast Show made it onto the radio (okay, the first and only time), the final product was played at a fundraiser in front of over 100 people (and yes, it got laughs), and the entire thing was recorded and edited in one day for a podcast competition. It was also recorded, then lost, by yours truly and so I had to rerecord and re-edit the entire thing twice. It was may stressful, but the...

Episode 17: Nostalgia for Christmas with Joe Zuko

You know what you need in the middle of the summer? More Christmas! This week’s guest is Joe Zuko, who is an increasingly popular author of “The Infected” series of books (which is, unlike so many other of the other books released these days, about zombies. To be fair, this is a really good and really entertaining series of books that I highly suggest. Joe is a close friend of Stuart’s and was the other co-host of the “Shotgun and Scotch” podcast along with the guest from the 6th episode...

Hey Everybody! Fellow podcaster and #PodernFamily member Kris Keppeler joins me in recording.

Speaking of which, the new site is awesome! The...

Episode 14: (De)Motivational Speaker with Dave Bullis

Hey Everyone! Dave Bullis (@Dave_Bullis) of the, get this, “Dave Bullis Podcast” (DaveBullis.Com). I know! How amazing that he happens to host a podcast that has HIS NAME IN THE TITLE! That’s what I call Serendipity… which I would imagine Dave would agree with me is by far the GREATEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME! No, I doubt he would, but he would definitely tell me why it is not. Dave is a film maker and film enthusiast who has the highly successful Dave Bullis Podcast where he talks to filmmakers...

Episode 12: Everyone Loves the Goonies! with Kelly Guimont

Hey Everyone! This week’s episode features Kelly Guimont (@verso) who is a tech journalist, fellow podcaster and also one of the heads of an organization that I absolutely adore: App Camp for Girls. App Camp is a summer program for young women for the sole purpose of teaching them how to code… with no boys allowed. You can learn more by going to appcamp4girls.com and I wish very much that I would have forced my daughter’s to go. Unfortunately, they are both too old now, but it’s not too...

Episode 10: This Debate is Masterful with Margaret and Ali of the “I Can’t Even” Podcast

Hey Everybody! This week’s episode is a threesome! Now that I have your attention, this episode features myself as well as Ali (@ali) and Margaret (@marg) of the “I Can’t Even” podcast, the show that discusses adulating as an old millennial. They tackle such topics such as relationships, politics, women’s rights and even dick pics! You can catch their podcast on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/i-cant-even/id1163280696?mt=2&at=1000l8hH. I don’t know why people complain about...

Episode 9: I Dream of India with Amber Peeler

Hey Everyone! This episode was one of the most special and was ultimately one of the most frustrating episodes I ever recorded. After living on a farm in an intended community my daughter came back and had really opened her mind to a lot of things that allowed her to become one with the universe and really find herself at 19. I thought it was fascinating. Amber, my daughter, on the other hand was really uncomfortable talking about any of it. So, we recorded this episode 3 times and ignored...

Episode 8: The BEST Accommodations with Adelaide

Hey Everybody! Thanks for tuning in! Maybe you even did it from TuneIn Radio, which is great because you can tell Alexa that you want to hear our show just by asking for it! For this episode, I established that I really wanted to find interesting people for the podcast. In my humble opinion, there is no one I know more interesting than my friend Adelaide. Adelaide spent 20 years of her life traveling and not having a permanent residence, so she has a story about literally everything....

Episode 6: THOSE Two Dads with S. Anthony Thomas

Hey Everyone! This week has one of my personal favorite podcasters on the show: S. Anthony Thomas. His show “S. Anthony Says…” is one of the funniest, smartest and rawest shows on the internet. S. knows how to tell a story in a way that draws you in and makes you want to listen, and what he talks about is relatable for all of us. I loved having him on the show and would love to have him on again. He is going through a bit of a revamp of his show as well and I am very excited to hear what...

Episode 5: Did You Get That? with Alisha Holland

This is one of my favorite all-time sketches that Alisha and I did, I think it is fantastic and really just well executed. Sometimes some of my favorite humor is when a character gets into a really uncomfortable or awkward situation and sees his or her way through it, this is not one of those cases. Also, the punchline on this sketch was perfect. So we have finished migrating the podcast over to the new service, iTunes has been updated and now you can actually see our delightful artwork in...

Episode 4: The Tinder Games with Alisha Holland

This week, we go back to the laboratory and try something different with the format of the show, as was suggested by friend of the show Jason Marshall (@jasonmarshall2) who he himself has a great podcast called “We Don’t Have Cookies” (URL) which Stuart has actually had the pleasure of being on (you can listen to that episode here: URL). So we are going to call this the Marshall Initiative and see if you like it better. I think it makes the most interesting parts of the show front and...

Episode 3: We Won the Olympics! with Dr. Kiki Sanford

Hey Everyone! This week’s episode is the first time we had ever had a guest on the podcast: Dr. Kiki of “This Week in Science”. She was a fantastic first guest and hopefully will be willing to come back for more! Make sure to check out her show (http://www.twis.org) to learn and have fun! We are revamping our YouTube page as well as all of the other things we are doing! It’s really exciting, because it means that we are going to have more ways to connect with people. I’m hoping that the...
