International comedian Tom Rhodes travels the world in search of love and laughter. Join him as he meets up with his favorite people around the world to reflect, share, and laugh about life and comedy.
Tom sits down with his long time San Francisco pal Dana Gould at the Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin, TX. They talk about his legendary career in stand-up comedy, dealing with hecklers, 911, UFOs & Area 51, Gearoge Carlin, and his time with the Simpsons.
[Gould (SF80s) and Rhodes (SF90s) are two comedy boomers with a naturalistic gift of gab. I’m new to this podcast but I recommend it on the strength of this episode alone.]
If the site looks a bit different, it’s because it is! We’ve included sponsorship, the first coincidently being my mum (huge fan of the blog).

Thanks to Andre Parker, Rach Shapiro, Frankie Castro and The Comedy Bureau (for doing it first)). Coming soon… Sonoma/Sacramento Open Mic Map. Cheers.
Also, if you’re not following them on twitter, get right with @SFStageTime, for the up-to-the-second updates/changes/cancellations.

There is a big announcement about SF Sketchfest 2013 that’s coming up this Friday, but we’re sworn to secrecy by the binding agreement of a press release to not say anything else. That being said, we have read that press release and it’ll be some damn fine news if you…

“I don’t want to be the guy that always put his finger in your butt, and I don’t want to be the guy that never puts his finger in your butt, but I don’t know how to be the guy who sometimes puts his finger in your butt.”—Scott Simpson @ Dirty Trix [Paraphrase]
