Podcast: RIFF-erendum with Steven Pearl and Al Clethen. Episode: Rick Overton. Download Link: Here. iTunes Link: Here. Official Link: Here.
Rick Overton is hands down one of the best riffers and kickass funny performers in all of comedy as well as being a regularly working actor. Whether tearing up the stage by himself or with Robin Williams (their comedy jams are legendary!) among others he’s worked with or appearing in movies like ‘Willow”, “Groundhog Day” and “Mrs. Doubtfire” and TV shows like “The Office”, “Seinfeld” and “General Hospital” (And that’s just a short list of his accomplishments!) he always brings his best game and you always remember him. I got to interview him when he was in town doing a show at the Throckmorton Theater with Robin and we had a nice talk.
[Papa Overton knocks the self-defeat out of Pearly’s palms in a very inspiring episode of the ‘Riff-erendum’.]
The Blackstronauts, encapsulated in the far reaches of the cold, dark vacuum, recall a recent simulation. This simulation had them half-intoxicated in AT&T Park, rooting for the San Francisco Giants – en route to a championship – alongside the premier Giant’s enthusiast, comedian Andrew Holmgren. Hologram recollection is often fragmented, especially at Mach David Gborie, but the trio does the their best to remember the Earth-day that once was.
Really good news for fans of delightfulness: Ron Funches (Conan, Montreal) is here!! We talk about the Black Mafia Family and the Lanford Mafia Family (Roseanne). He also reveals the secret to making him cry. Emily and Lisa are delirious and also still reeling from the terror that is Action Park’s Wikipedia page. Kara Klenk Yvette Bobalescu tells us how to rip the hair out of our crotches and other places.
