Hey hosers! Check it oot: Today we got comedian Tom Green, who comes from my hometown of Ottawa, Canada. You’d think it was just another boring government town like DC, but the punk scene back in the 1980s was really weird.
I had a band called Anal Chinook and Tom’s band was called Organized Rhyme. We both used more props than Carrot Top on stage and all that clowning around likely led us to our weird careers.
I also talked to Jared Swilley of The Black Lips about how hard it is for bands to get through the Canadian border. This is a problem I remember going way back to the '80s and '90s too. What are they so afraid of, some band is going to leave Canada with tens upon tens of dollars? Nice priorities, guys.
We also got ex-"Daily Show" correspondent Jason Jones, who has basically taken over TBS with his wife Samantha Bee. They’re both Canucks and both their shows are great. His is called "The Detour." (I think it’s on Comedy in Canada.)
Then we take some calls as we are wont to do, but remember: It’s all Canada all the time, so if you’re not one of us, you better be talking about something that pertains to The Great White North!
