The third in our JFL42 2018 interviews we chatted with Matteo Lane, I was lucky enough to catch him perform twice at the festival and it was a real joy. He joined me for a phone interview after his return to New York from Toronto and we discussed one of his favourite comedy albums Ellen Degeneres' special Here and Now.
The chat was a blast, we talked about his work as an opera singer, painter, graphic designer, comic book illustrator and a comedian. If you want to see more of his amazing work check out his instagram. Also, those topless pictures are real life goal inspirations! Thanks again to Matteo for taking the time to chat with us and if you have a chance catch him live!
We had the pleasure of sitting down with Chanty Marostica, the first out trans performer in JFL42 history and a finalist in the SiriusXM Top Comic competition. They just wrapped their solo show at The Comedy Bar last night and will be recording their set for the SiriusXM Top Comic special this evening. It was a great converation about comedy, creating spaces and the process of taking part in SiriusXM's Top Comic competition (and the plus side of getting to stay in a swanky hotel).
Hi everyone, this is Matt Ardill the co-producer of Comedy Album Book Club. I had the pleasure of sitting down with our guest Adam Bailey three weeks ago following his turn on the panel where we spoke about Eddie Izzard's Force Majeure. We got to talk about his process of writing and all the influences that go into it.
A lot has happened since this interview including the addition of Adam's show The ABCs of Love with Adult Baby Cupid to the Toronto Fringe Festival running from July 5th to July 15th and the Hamilton Fringe Festival running from July 19th to July 29th. If you are in Toronto or Hamilton for either of these dates, do yourself a favour and make time to see it.
Please enjoy this interview and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Having had such a great time with Derek Forgie (The Ten Minute Talkshow) and Adam Kenneth Wilson (@adamkwilson) we decided to release this from the Disney vaults. It involved a heist led by Bill Murray, the elite hacking skills of Hackerman and the dry cool action hero wit of Jason Deline (@jasondeline). As usual Andrea Miller runs the show from behind the desk back at the Social Capital Theatre (TheSoCap). So join us as we enjoy discussing a moment in Toronto sketch history.
Patton took time out of his busy schedule to sit down with Jason and discuss Werewolves & Lollipops, comedy and helping bring Michelle McNamara's project I'll Be Gone In The Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer to the public.
Thanks to Patton for his generosity and kindness in sitting and speaking with us.
