It's been a while since our last Friday Show. The Boys talk shit about a bunch of things. That is all. You can also tell who wrote the description.
Alexander Nelson has been working as a professional musician for a couple of years now doing double duty as a hired gun (guitar) and writing and singing in his own band, Walking Spanish. We talk with Alexander about what it takes to live his dream, where the desire came from, his musically inclined parents, and a whole lot more! Junior also embarrasses himself by constantly referring to Alexander as Andrew. Good times ahead on this episode of The Junior & Leo Show!
On this episode of the show we sit down with comedian, Stephen Frurey. We talk to him about starting in comedy, his process, what he believes it takes to succeed, writing under the influence, and hie style of comedy. We talk about bringing family to comedy shows to early, and pitfalls that can arise if you bomb in front of them. All this and More!!!
When we booked comedian Andrew Ouellette to be on our show, we were only expecting to talk to him about his journey as a stand-up comic, and eventual move to the River City. What we got was that, plus a big announcement about his brand new sketch comedy show called! It's called Sketch Suicide, and if you want to know any more about it, you'll have to take a listen. To talk about the new project, Andrew brought his co-horts on the project, returning guests Derik Bishop and Claire Fischer, and future solo guest, Bryant Tarpley! They also brought beer, which Junior really appreciated, and forced Leo to reconnect with his twelve steps.
It's our big 100th episode AND our 1 year anniversary! As fortune would have it, we were able to celebrate these landmarks at the same time at the place that first brought us together, the Sacramento Comedy Spot, in front of a mighty a crowd! Celebrating with us were spoken word poet and radio show host, Jovi Radtke, and stand-up comedian and friend of the show, Johnny Taylor! We also played a little Poetry Idol with Leo, Junior, and our one-man houseband, Hunter Hill, writing and performing a poem, with the crowd deciding the winner! Laughs were uttered, hearts were broken, and a good time was had by all!
We'd like to say THANK YOU to the Comedy Spot for allowing us the space and opportunity to host our live show on their stage. THANK YOU to all the beautiful people who attended. THANK YOU to all of our wonderful guests who've joined us on the show. And lastly, THANK YOU to everyone one of you who choose to listen to our show each week!
