Hey, it’s me (again)!

I must not have stunk up the joint too badly when I was a guest on the Hey It’s TVA podcast last year, because I was kindly invited back to guest on its new incarnation, Comedy Above the Pub.

It starts going off the rails about 12 seconds in. I blame the fact that I brought beer with me, trying to be a gracious guest. (Hey, my intentions were good.) Lame jokes follow, I giggle annoyingly at the boys as they fight, and we manage to spend a cumulative 3 minutes talking about me, this blog, and my one-woman show An Inconvenient Truthiness.

Still interested? Head on over to www.comedyabovethepub.com to listen! And to enjoy the gorgeous photo of me taken after spending an hour in Todd’s combination studio/sauna.

As for that show of mine? It’s something I haven’t been (and won’t be) talking it up heavily on here, keeping with my policy of not promoting my own shows. That’s not what you came for. But if you’re curious about the show, and want to see it this summer in Hamilton, Ontario or Victoria, B.C., you can follow those proceedings over here.
