Unfortunately this month Jason couldn't join us so I (Matt Ardill @commonperson) had the pleasure of hosting the podcast. I was lucky enough to sit down with Peter Hill (@peterjameshill) and Sharilyn Johnson (@thirdbeat) to discuss the Robin Williams album A Night At The Met! It was a night to relive memories of our youth and laugh out loud from The Social Capital Theatre (@thesocap). We hope you enjoy the episode and we miss you Robin.
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.
Our regular host Jason Deline (@JasonDeline) was under the weather and the intrepid Helena Marie stepped in to fill his hosting shoes while we discussed the multi-talented Ben Elton's album Motormouth. Joined by Neil Jones (Radio Project X), myself Matt Ardill (@commonperson) and Kyle Scott (@gkylescott) while we dive into the man who made Edmund Blackadder so delightfully evil and The Young Ones' plot make sense as he delved into the world of staund-up.
As always our amazing engineer Andrea Miller kept our show ticking along and please check out our home on Facebook for more information about future shows, leaving us a question or suggesting an album.
Welcome to the inaugural episode of The Comedy Album Book Club's podcast. Jason was joined at The Social Capital Theatre by guest panelists comedians Olivia Stadler and Jules Osen as well as video game and pop culture blogger Matthew Ardill to mull over the classic An Evening with Mike Nichols and Elaine May and discuss its impact on comedy history with thanks to engineer Andrea Miller for bringing the noise.
