Comedy on us;
a news letter of sorts that lists the great comedy we have going on on and off the air. Be sure to check out all that we have to offer, from upcoming live comedy on Mondays On Blast to National and local guests on the Comics Corner podcast.
THE PODCAST: COMICS CORNER 8/28/13Dan and Bruce, sitting in their tower!
This past Wednesday was our first show back at our new time slot (7 PM) and this time we are inside the Tower of The Historic Pawtucket Armory, just under the rampart. So boss!
It is great to be back though while we were gone, Bruce and I stayed very busy. When we weren't doing shows we were fillming sketches for One Armed Bald Guy. Please subscribe for updates.
Our latest posts include a teaser clip called Dan Vs A Pool in a Tux as well as a recap of The Wolverine by my face and Dan and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.
RA Bartlett (Top Right) is getting to the bottom of it all.
Bruce talked about his progress in stand-up, a keen follow up to his past blog-u-mentary, "Standing Up On My Own." We were joined in Studio by comedians Kenny Nardozza and RA Bartlett. Kenny is a regular guest and host of our new segment; A Metal Moment with Moshing Maniac.
On the phones we had Actress and Comedian Erica Rhodes, who was featured in a photo bomb in Comedy On Us Vol. 1.
Erica talked about her career as an actress and her recent foray into stand-up comedy. Two things to check out would be the Radio Show turned Podcast she has been performing on since childhood, Prairie Home companion and a web series that she starred in on Youtube with over 80,000 hits, Upstairs Girls.
Listen Here and enjoy.
