Succotash Chats Epi147: Kickin' It With Ritch Shydner
http://SuccotashShow.com

Howdy, howdy, howdy! It’s your ol' friend and audio neighbor Marc Hershon, host and rootin', tootin’ cowpoke for Epi147 of Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Roundup.

Yee haw!

This installment has nothing to do with cowboys, it's actually an episode of Succotash Chats, where we focus on interviews with soundcasters, comedians, soundcaster/comedians, and just plain ol’ showbiz folk. Although, come to think of it, once I get into this episode's conversation with our guest, it is like looking back on a kind of wild West.

I recently wrote a review on Huffington Post of Kicking Through The Ashes, a memoir of sorts by comedian Ritch Shydner. And then a couple of weeks after that review hit, Ritch was playing nearby at Mill Valley’s Throckmorton Theatre on a Tuesday night. After the show was over, we tried to get a bite to eat but the sidewalks roll up pretty early this side of the Golden Gate Bridge so we went to his hotel and chatted it up there for a bit and that's what you're going to hear.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE

We have a double dose of our Burst O' Durst segment with political comedian and social commentator Will Durst, a short visit to the Tweetsack to read your tweets and emails, and we're sponsored this episode by Henderson's Parka Pants.

STUFF IRL

I'm in the process of putting together April's Fools, a sort of comedy variety show on Saturday, April 1st, and the Throckmorton Theater in Mill Valley, CA. It will feature our own Will Durst, past guest Larry "Bubbles" Brown, Debi Durst, Dan Spencer, Al Clethen, and a few other surprises. We’ll have a bunch of comedian and funny people doing standup, improv, readings, music, and more. So if your around the area, be sure to check that out if you want some good laughs to kick off your April entertainment calendar. You can find out more information online at 142ThrockmortonTheatre.org

PICK UP RITCH'S BOOK!

Don't forget to grab a copy of Kicking Through The Ashes. Easiest way to do that is to hit the Amazon banner at the top of our SuccotashShow.com homesite, type in the title and get it in your hot little hands quick.

PLACES TO LISTEN / WAYS YOU CAN HELP

In addition to our homesite, iTunes, Stitcher, SoundCloud, and the Laughable app, you can hear each episode of Succotash on our Facebook page, catch us on iHeart Radio and even listen to us on YouTube - it's audio only, though but maybe you'd like looking at a still shot of Ritch Shydner for 56 minutes.

As far as what you can do to help Succotash, the easiest and cheapest is to hit iTunes and give us 5 stars and a glowing review. You can also go to our homepage, click on the Donate button and slip us some green. Then there's the Amazon banner at the top of the page and the link to our Succotashery on the right hand side.

Until next time our paths cross please remember to pass the Succotash!

My phodoodle in this week's Half Moon Bay Review: None too bright. Not sure if that describes incandescent bulbs or the Coastsiders who prefer them over LEDs.

Succotash Chats Epi146: Sketchfestin' in Frisco
http://SuccotashShow.com

Something a little different this time out — a live epi of Succotash Chats, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, presented as part of the 16th Annual San Francisco Sketchfest!

(For those who may be offended by my use of Frisco in the title this week - often an affront to some from the City By The Bay - please bear in mind this was a time-honored handle for San Francisco until Chronicle columnist Herb Caen decided to make it a "thing", including writing a book entitled, Don't Call It Frisco! But screw him. He was from Sacramento originally anyway. I grew up in and around this city and I'll call it whatever I want…)

We had a delightful show on a Sunday afternoon at the Piano Fight nightclub in the Tenderloin district with a slim crowd in attendance. (I like to blame the low turnout on the thunderstorm that was going on.) Our beloved booth announcer Bill Heywatt was there, live and in person, and went beyond simply introducing the show and reading a commercial for Henderson's Pants Hippie Hiphuggers — he sang a song, The President's A Trump, based on The Lady Is A Tramp. And he was accompanied on piano by guest Wayne Federman, co-host of the Human Conversation soundcast.

Special thanks to Wayne, who was performing the previous night and was due to fly home early Sunday, but stayed over until evening and paid the extra money to switch his flight just to join us.

In addition to Bill and Wayne, we had political comedian and social commentator Will Durst who read a live Burst O' Durst segment and also helped me host the event. And on our panel of soundcasters we also had Paco Romane, co-host of the Sup Doc show, and Cole Stratton, co-host of Pop My Culture (and also co-producer of the SF Sketchfest.)

Interestingly, both Wayne and Cole's soundcasts have dropped their last episodes. (Pop My Culture actually put up its last show the week before as part of the Sketchfest offerings.)

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Great question! To help us to keep the mics on, you can do one (or all) of several things to offset our production costs. 1) Visit SuccotashShow.com and click on the cheery Donate button in the upper right side of the page, OR 2) Visit SuccotashShow.com and click on the Amazon banner at the top of the page - we get a little taste of everything you buy from the World's Greatest Anything Store, OR 3) Purch some merch from our Succotashery which, oddly enough, is available at SuccotashShow.com!

Thanks so much for reading this, listening to the soundcast, and passing the Succotash!
