Howie's High Sierra Comedy Vault

Radio regular ("Graham's Crackers" every Thursday) and the guy I went over to Iraq/Kuwait with, Graham Elwood is the comic in part responsible for me even starting a podcast. Here he talk about the emergence of ComedyFilmNerds.com, the documentary that he and fellow comedian & co-creator of their podcast, Chris Mancini started. Jackie Kashian also talk about her foray into comedy and like Elwood, talks about how her podcast has changed comedy and finding a niche audience.

 

 


Owen Benjamin and Frances Dilorinzo bring up an interesting topic about being confident in the comedy world and start debating on men versus women in our business and it gets a little heated at times in a funny, uncomfortable way. Good stuff from two very good comics. I call Dana Carvey and while he's driving around the bay area starts doing  improvised impressions on the spot that are hilarious. 


Political humorist Will Durst and David Gee cover a wide range of topics including the obvious discussion on politics but also about comedy as a career in general. We also talk about the history, the lineage if you will of comedy and how it has transformed into what it is today.


Allan Havey, Jodi Borrello and Kevin Nealon chat with comedian Howie Nave from Lake Tahoe about golf, classic movies, Hurricane Katrina, relationships, the business of comedy, golf, television series Mad Men, Weeds, Saturday Night Live, Louis C.K. and everything in-between.

Purpetual NewYorker Bobby Collins and Johnny Steele from 3 Still Standing, both comedian stage performers for more than 30 years, debate what the message is in comedy. Johnny thinks a message should be in the comedy while Bobby thinks its all about entertaining the crowd.

Author and Host: Howie Nave. Dan Finnerty of The Dan Band started out singing all women's music and wound up on the big screen in the movies 'Old School" & "The Hangover." Dan rocks the story on how that happened. Howie pulls Adam Ray from the comedy vault as he dishes behind-the-scenes on what it was like working with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy in "The Heat," as Erin Foley goes from being a stand-up in New York to getting cast in Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous," all this in-between the circumcised panini.
