OMG, this one is late too…
Hey, Ladies and Gentlemen!
Welcome to the first show of the new year. We had some technical issues this week and it pushed back the podcast a little, but we have a fun show for you. The whole gang’s here and Chewie brought in some great tapes of the Great Old Ones of the Reno scene. Joining us also are Sam O’Brien and Victoria Velasquez.
Sam O’Brien is a leading comic and writer at Empire Improv, making audiences laugh since at least a couple of days ago. A busy man, Sam is also a teacher at Rainshadow High School and very involved in the Reno arts and education communities. He joins us this week mostly as a comic, but has some upcoming events related to the high school that he is really excited to promote.
Victoria Velasquez is also in the studio with us. A fellow teacher at Rainshadow, Vicki is also involved in the Reno art scene as a resident artist at Reno Art Works. You can find her there most evenings as well as her work hanging on the walls of her studio space at RAW.
I could say more about what they’ve got going on, but that’s for you to find out when you listen. Again, a big thanks to Sam O’Brien and Victoria Velasquez for being on the show!
It’s the quiet ones that you gotta watch out for… they’re usually crazy.
This week on the Worst Little Podcast in the World, b
ullshit artist comedian Tim Dufrisne joins us in the studio. Tim has haunted and stalked open mics in Reno for over ten years in Reno, focusing on his comedic skillz in the last five years. He’s an integral part of the Empire Comedy and Empire Improv groups and teaches in their improv classes. On this episode he keeps Chewie’s seat warm while the big man toils away in a mine. Check him and Empire Comedy out this Friday at 10:30 at the Good Luck Macbeth Theater.
We’re kind of all over the road on this one, talking about Nick’s recent nuptials, Tim’s disturbing childhood, and even current events! I mean, really, how could we not talk about Seal Team Six bringing back the World Hide and Seek Championship Ring? We also have yet ANOTHER first – our first phone interview! Since he couldn’t make it in town to the wedding, we called up Steve Fot, long-time Reno rockstar and good friend of the show, to bust his balls about not being in town. The phone is very exciting… who knows… maybe the next person we call is YOU!!
