Stuart Rice grew up wishing he could be Jewish and Canadian... not because of any ideology or geographic preference but because he wanted to be funny and all of his comedy heroes were often either Jewish or Canadian. But, because it takes effort to become either of those things, and that doesn't actually guarantee that one will get laughs, Stuart spent much of his adult life just trying to find the funniest thing to say at any given time; he wasn't satisfied with that, but it was a way to get through his day. Then, he met Alisha. It was a modern romance story, they met on OK Cupid and timidly started dating. Then it got more serious. Then they both realized that they were way more excited about being funny together than they were about anything else; so the romance became a friendship and Stuart decided to put microphones in front of each other and try to be funny, with sketch, like Saturday Night Live for ears. After 2 years, Alisha decided to leave the show. It was sad, but Stuart had a decision to make... did he fold the show and just go back to trying to be the funniest guy in the room or did he change the show to make it so he could continue doing the thing that he really enjoyed for a growing audience? Stuart decided that the show must go on, and change "Sketch Comedy Podcast Show" into something similar but completely different: Interesting people having intriguing conversations then improvising comedy sketches based on the conversations. This new format has helped "Sketch Comedy Podcast Show" grow and become a destination for interesting people to participate and listen!

Dune DiCarnage | Your Friendly, Neighborhood Human Cyborg - Part 2
Last episode we heard about Dune’s birthday party while he was in the hospital being a quadraplegic (seriously, it was better than any of your birthday parties) and what got him there. This week, we hear about how much Dune’s doctors were complete dicks to him, and why it worked. We also hear about dating while immobilized, being in movies and why Zion from “The Matrix” was filled with a bunch of nipple-necked cliques.

Dune DiCarnage | Your Friendly, Neighborhood Human Cyborg - Part 1
To refer to Dune as anything less than a superhero would be a gross misrepresentation. Dune has defied every odd, has looked death and worse in the eye and laughed, and has even attended my funeral before I died… this guy is INTERESTING! It is not often that one gets to talk to someone who was a quadriplegic, destined never to walk again, who just literally willed himself back on his feet. I don’t know what you did this weekend, but I certainly didn’t do anything like that! Dune DiCarnage is hard to pin down, he has had so many careers and jobs in the past, and none of them could be considered ordinary. He has been a secret agent, a dancer at Zion (in the Matrix), and now patrols the city at night as part-man, part-machine seeking vengeance upon evil. Okay, that last part is not completely accurate, but I would not put it past Dune for that to be true. This is a 2-part episode, because the conversation ran long and it is all well worth listening to. Also, what better way to close out the year?!? You will hear up until Dune’s birthday party, which was like no other birthday party you have ever attended. Next week, you will get the rest of the conversation as well as the sketch we recorded. These are stories you will likely not forget! Sketch Comedy Podcast show is an independent and completely improvised sketch podcast that is based on conversations with interesting people like YOU!

Bunny Young | Addicted to Great Danes and Saving the World
This week's guest, Bunny Young, is a therapist turned consultant (you may be noticing a trend as of late...) who specializes in helping companies recognize work/life balance and become better at making the world a better place, which is sort of her life's mission statement. Her company, "A Better Place Consulting" (abetterplaceconsulting.com), is a place where small to large companies go for more direction and also hire her for speaking engagements. Bunny currently has 5 great danes at her house. That's a lot of dogs! I don't know if you realize how big those dogs are! They're huge! 5 of them! Not only that, but Bunny found a way to make me feel even more guilty about my extreme coffee addiction, and now I am sourcing fair-trade certified coffee and trying to find ways to make my Keurig machine not so... wasteful. Also, she did part of her college dissertation on the Joker being her client.

The End-of-Year One-Hour Holiday Special!
’Tis the season for endless holiday specials. I remember torturing my parents by requiring us to all watch the same crappy shows every year… “Here Comes Santa Claus” or “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” or watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade or seeing “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” for the upteenth time… it was really a sacrifice because back then we didn’t have more than one TV in the house and it wasn’t like my Dad could watch something else, or play on his iPad, while I watched “A Very Brady Christmas” again. I’m surprised I wasn’t abused. But now, you can get back at your kids by listening to this on the way to wherever you are going … Let’s start with a Thanksgiving sketch about everyone’s favorite holiday side dish… “It’s a New World Delicacy” Of course, Thanksgiving is great and all… especially when that one uncle with the confederate flag on his truck drinks a little too much and starts a good, healthy conversation about politics… but let’s face it, Thanksgiving only exists so that we can celebrate the holiday that really matters… Black Friday! Here are a couple of sketches that really highlight the pleasant memories of Black Friday’s past… “It’s More Like Brown Friday, You Know What I Mean?” “The Saddest Part of Black Friday” You know it’s time to really hit the holiday gas when Starbucks brings out their holiday cups. Really, how else are you going to know when to start drinking peppermint mochas and put a lid on the pumpkin spice for a year. That’s right, there has never been a year those cups didn’t completely disappoint and cause people to lose their damn minds. “Red Cups” Now we get to the part of the show that is all musical. I’ll just let these go uninterrupted. First up, we have a song about Santa Claus that may have been unexpectedly kinky, then we have another classic that features a celebrity that takes an already rape-y song and makes it more rape-y. After that, we have rock legend Don Henley send mixed signals with his holiday classic and that is followed up by an updated version of “The Grinch” which will likely give you reason to head to UrbanDictionary.com. “The Most Unintentionally Inappropriate Christmas Song of All Time” "Baby It's Coz In Here" “Don Henley’s Most Personal Song Ever” “How The Grinch Stole Innocence” Hopefully all of those wonderful songs got your toes tapping and your voices all prepped, because one of the best things about the holidays is accosting your fellow neighbors with your unprepared voices to regale them with songs that you likely don’t know while they keep their front doors open to the bitter cold. That’s right, caroling! “Carols of the Dumbbells” What is Christmas going to become in the future? Well, we know one thing that will never go out of style… nostalgia. What is nostalgia going to look like in 2036? Kids will be just as disappointed as they are now. “Christmas Nostalgia from the Future” Well, that concludes Sketch Comedy Podcast Show’s End-of-Year One-Hour Holiday Special. I hope you have had a fun time listening, had a wonderful year and have all of your loved-ones near and close to you. Stay warm and enjoy eating all the goodies! I look forward to bringing you more interesting people having intriguing conversations and then improvising comedy sketches based on what we talked about next year and hopefully many years afterwards. As a special special bonus, after the end credits there is a song performed by former co-host Alisha Holland where she purposely does a horrible rendition of Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas”.

Mark Whitney | Political Podcaster, Comedic Performer, 2020 Presidential Candidate
Look, it’s not every day that you get to talk to someone who is registered to be on the ballot as a presidential hopeful in 2020, and you have to hop on each one of these types of opportunities. Does it help that Mark Whitney is also a comedian? Well… maybe. Mark Whitney is, in fact, running for President in 2020. This is not a joke, he is serious, and I think it is wonderful that we could get a chance to hear someone like Mark debate the other two candidates on a national level. Mark has experiences, from starting as an Electrolux Vacuum salesman to becoming a Ben & Jerry’s kingpin, to losing it all and landing in prison which set him up to come back and start a very successful law website… this story has to be heard to be believed! Be on the lookout for more from Mark this year, and make sure to check out his website, markwhitney.com, to learn more about him (although, you will learn a lot in this show) and listen to his podcast “Mark Whitney - Civil Libertarian for President - Keep Banging”.
