Episode 11: The View From The Road

The crowning paradox of the touring comic’s life may be this: You have to leave home to make a name, but without the grounding and security of home you may not have anything to say. This week, three experienced comedians on striking the tricky balance between the road and home.

Music:

  • “Sophistication,” from the Complete Capitol Production Music
  • “Track 2,” from “I Love You Alice B. Toklas” (original soundtrack)
  • “Rythn,” by Podington Bear
  • “Pretty Simple,” by Podington Bear

Thanks to Cathy Ladman, whose one-woman show, “Does This Show Make Me Look Fat?”, opens soon; Brad Upton, whose upcoming tour schedule is available here; and Jackie Kashian, who can be heard on The Dork Forest and The Jackie and Laurie Show.

Episode 10: A Life At Sea, On Land

IMG_3135How far would you go to rescue the remains of a bygone world you’ve loved since you were a kid? Peter Knego went to Alang, India, and then did it again and again, to save what he could of the great ocean liners being scrapped there. But he didn’t just want to save the ships. He wanted to live in one. And to a remarkable degree he’s succeeded, filling his home in Oceanside, CA with a breathtaking array of maritime memorabilia.

This week: One man’s mission to recreate, in landlocked miniature, the great days of the oceangoing¬†ships.

Thanks to Peter Knego and Mark B. Perry. To learn more about Knego’s memorabilia business, visit midshipcentury.com.¬†
