Episode 115: Comedians Michael O’Connell, Mike Betancourt, Michael Calvin Jr. and Mike Sinclair (The Mikes!)
On this episode we chat with the four comics that make up the themed comedy show, The Mikes! Of course, the only "theme" this show has going for it is that all of the comics are named Mike, and that they're all really really funny! It was great to talk to Betancourt, O'Connell, Calvin Jr., and Sinclair (via phone) and see what makes each one of them tick, how they came to be together, and where they hope to take this show in the future. We also learn how they've changed as comedians since they started putting this show on nearly a year ago. Take a listen, and then support these guys when they roll into your area.

Robert Berry is more than just another bald head and a goatee. He's a pioneer, being responsible for one of the earliest pop culture websites, retroCRUSH! He helped pave the way for all of the unadulterated nostalgia and snark on the interwebs these days, so if you don't like that stuff, he's a great man to blame. We happen to love that stuff, and were thrilled to have Robert drop by the Big Z Broadcast Studio to chat with us about his beginnings on the web, his days in sketch comedy, and his ultimate foray into stand-up comedy! Junior also expresses his nerd inferiority in Robert's presence. Leo doesn't say much. Be sure to check out Robert Berry's website: retroCRUSH.com
What happens when life imitates art? Comedy of course! Real comedy. The sort of comedy you can both laugh at and be afraid of at the same time! Such is the life of comedienne, Janelle Murphey. Still only in her early twenties, Janelle has hit most of the stages in and around Sacramento, as well as become a booker, setting up shows in Midtown that feature some of the funniest women the Capitol City has to offer. Raised in a religious family in Lincoln, it was fun for us to talk to her about her first time venturing into Sacramento for the first time as a young adult, despite living just outside of it her entire life. We also talk to her about her process for joke writing thus far, and what her experiences have been like on and off stage working with the comedy community. Junior also steps in a giant pile of "DOH!" when the subject of a late relative is brought up, while Leo laughs maniacally at his faux pas.
