This past spring my wife Heather and I visited the UK, on our trip we had the opportunity to sit down and chat with sisters Nicola and Rosie Dempsey also known as Flo & Joan. Fixtures of the Toronto sketch community who had returned to their native England sat with us over an initially sunny and progressively rainy brunch to talk about their influences both musically and comedically as well as the challenges and opportunities of performing in Canada versus the U.K., Fringe Festivals and some of their experiences performing. They are currently on tour and you can find more information on their facebook page. Thanks again to Nicola and Rosie for sitting with us and please enjoy the episode.
It may be a bit late but the wait is worth it, welcome to the first episode of The Comedy Album Book Club recorded in our new studio. I was lucky enough to have the pleasure of sitting with SiriusXM Top Comic finalist Chanty Marostica, comedian Kat Letwin and playwright and performer Adam Bailey. We dug into the album Jesus Is Magic by Sarah Silverman. It was a lively and fun discussion where we touched on Star Trek: Voyager, Drake, the 90s and drill down on growing as a comic.
