Howie's High Sierra Comedy Vault

Episode 198 with comedians Bob Zany & Larry 'Bubbles' Brown who are the epitome of pain + cynicism with a tinge of bitterness that = great comedy. Bob is on my morning radio show up here in Lake Tahoe every Tuesday with The Zany Report.


Episode 197 with comedians Liza Treyger & Ken Garr. Recorded in South Lake Tahoe both talk about the opportunities that exist if you just go out and pursue them. There's hope folks.


Episode 196 with iconic comedian and actor Dom Irrera. I'd never chatted with him before. Oh, sure I'd seen him at a comedy club when I was down in Los Angeles but even then never caught his entire set. So to interview him was a real treat. and yes, I did get to see him finally perform down at The Laugh Factory in Reno.

Episode 195 with comedian Todd Glass breaking out into song with Chip Chantry & Howie singing backup. One of the more entertaining conversations ever and nice having Chip on making his debut up here in Lake Tahoe.


Ep194 brings back comedians Rocky LaPorte and Ron Morey with a coda of 'Carol' to round out the experience in what has clearly been a tradition that is always more fun with each meeting. Rocky of course was Best Man at my wedding (and said he'd be Best Man at my next weeding).


Episode 193 with comedians Raj Sharman, Rawle D. Lewis & David Gee (aka a multi-religious melting pot of humor).


Episode 192 with San Francisco bay area comedian Johnny Steele. I interviewed him earlier this month when he was hosting the SF Comedy Competition here in Lake Tahoe (& who has won it in the past). We talk about the craft but more importantly the mechanics & being smart in the comedy business promoting yourself and changing as the climate changes to keep up with the trends.


Episode 191 is up and loaded with comedian guru & spiritual advisor The Tommy Lama (aka Tommy Savitt) who helps comedian Avi Liberman & Howie find non-physical happiness.


Episode 190 with comedians Allan Havey, Rick D'Elia & Dana Eagle. Topics include power in Hollywood and those who abuse it (such as Harvey Weinstein), conspiracies and those who believe them (D'Elia, myself) and those who are skeptical (Havey, Eagle) and the dark side of comedy (that we all agreed on).


Episode189 with comedians Vince Morris & Michael Blaustein and this episode is by far the most extensive chat on racial relations ever. Vince has a very interesting take on this as he has seen and lived through people who were racist and also to his father who fought in Korea. Yes, it was a different time but when you grow up in that kind of environment yes, it does make a difference. It's a good one folks and it's all at Howienave.com
