One of the reasons I like Sam Ike so much is that he can have the smartest room in Cambridge rolling but also kill it in a bar 20 miles from the nearest highway. We sat down in the bar of our favorite Chinese food place/Comedy club to talk about his improv career, moving into stand up and the shows he produces that are somewhere in between. We also see if we can save a bomb about a friend dying and how Kickstarter really works!
Something a little...well, very different this week. A handful of comics, including your weekly Bombing tour guide, arrived for a show that the audience forgot to attend. What happens when the show doesn't go? You get half a dozen comics, a live mic, and some very NSFW storytelling including the great Boston Comedy Death Hoax!
This week we are live on Commonwealth Ave with Rob Crean (and a guest appearance by John Paul Rivera who was only vaping tobacco!). We discuss the difference between being a comedian and a humorist, producing shows and albums, and we do it all while celebrating a very special Allston Christmas!
I love talking to comics who've been writing jokes for a while and can look back on their old jokes and compare them to the new, but I thought it'd be fun to mix things up little bit. Luke Touma was getting ready to leave for a tour of Hawaii when we talked about his brief but action packed career in Boston and his plans for the future in Hollywood and a bomb that's still fresh enough to feel the singe marks!
