LSQC155 - Cee Jay Jones

Buckle up for tech issues!! The Westview kids are on full alert today.

A “Punchliner” Comedy Club favorite, Cee jay Jones joined us for Lenny Schmidts Quarantine Comedy ep155.

Cee jay sounds like he’s in a tine can. Sound issues reared their ugly heads again courtesy those stupid Westview kids. We discussed “Old shitty cars we bought and for how much” with several of the Patreon members. But the big topic was the big meeting many of us entertainers had with Carnival execs. The return of cruising!! The return of Live comedy… all good things today on LSQC. Cee Jay is a great guy. Even greater for dealing with the shitty audio thing the Westview kids screwed up.

Catch Cee Jay live this weekend (4/9-11) hosting the Springfest at “Two Witches Winery and Brewery” in Danville, VA. Keep in touch with Cee Jay: FB: IG: You’re Welcome.

Lenny Schmidts Quarantine Comedy — LIVE!!!

2nite LSQC155 brings you class and style.

LSQC154 - Charlie Hughes

Charlie Hughes on LSQC154.

Very cool catching up with Charlie Hughes. I met him as an entertainment host on Carnival Cruise Lines. Now, he runs his own Personal Training business and is a working actor in the Vancouver area. Young guy playing it smart. Has himself in a great position to pursue and further his acting career. Spent a lot of time talking about the acting. How to deal with the roller coaster ride that is the acting world. Casting directors, auditions, classes, how to make money and keep it coming in during the “slower” times. This means before and after Covid. There’s gonna be some changes to the whole approach. Charlie is ahead of the curve on all of it. He works a lot because of it.

Charlie takes a select handful of applicants on board as personal trainer. Check out his site at:

LSQC153 – Dobie Maxwell

LSQC153 - Dobie Maxwell

LSQC153 featured Dobie Maxwell just before the break.

I’ve known Dobie for years. I’ve worked with him. I’ve worked for him. He opened for me. I opened for him….. He is a true veteran of the stand-up world. It was a treat to catch up with him. We touched on everything stand-up. Ships, clubs, the in and outs of the daily grind of stand-up. The behind the scenes of the business is, lets just say it’s a lot. A lot of it is fun, a lot is not. It can be a grind. Road comics need to keep moving. Kind of like a fish. They only way to survive is to keep moving forward. So, when Covid showed up…. it was a bit much for many of us. So much so for Dobie, he has “retired”. Moving in to the memorabilia business. Dobie isn’t the first guest we’ve talked to that has used the “Stupid Covid” year to reinvent himself. However, I put retired that in quotes because I think he’ll be back. Ya can’t keep “Mr. Lucky” down?

Why is he called “Mr. Lucky?” Check out CD and find out.

“Hard Luck Jollies”:

Oh, and he’s an author too. Check out his book while you are at it? “Monkey in the Middle”:

Mr. Rob Little. He’s like a giant toddler…. in a good way.

This was a great episode… and a long one. Almost two hours. Rob and I talked about his new house, being electrocuted, anger, parents, abandonment, ignorance,….. and all the neuroses that come with family. Touched on cruise ships, and his upcoming Podcast “A Little Tom Foolery” and his #DryBarComedy

We talked about happy stuff… the road opening up, getting back on stage, family, dogs, Dale and Jodi are gonna be grandparents!!!! Dale and Jody also talked about the feeling of having our “soul ripped out”, A feeling shared by so many live performers who had their passion and livelihood taken away a year ago. Dale and Jody also told us all about their T-shirt business. Shirt, coffee cups, signs…. you can have just about anything printed by going to their website.

Thanks for Dale and Jodi…… and thank you for watching.

LSQC149 – Don Barnhart. Where do I start with Don Barnhart….? Comedian, Hypnotist, Producer, Actor, Filmmaker, Teacher, Writer, Entrepreneur, Business Owner, Booker, Club owner, Author, Husband…….. sleeps occasionally. ….and, Salsa maker. This guys insane.

As a business owner in Vegas, Don was a great guest to give yet another POV as far as COVID and entertainment goes. He also is another guest that just finds a way to keep moving forward, keep creating, keep on keeping on. Covid is just another speed bump in this road called life. (I’m leaving the last line in even though it sounds lame)

(****Since this recording, I booked a week at Don’s Delirious Comedy Club in Vegas May 6-9…. and he did send some salsa. I suggest you order some asap.)

LSQC147 – Dave Stieve

Lenny Schmidts Quarantine Comedy
LSQC147 - Dave Stieve

LSQC147 – This is David Stieve. Screenwriter, Producer, of the film “Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon” Funny, scary movie. He’s also a Packer fan. Just as scary.

We talked about horror films. His plan moving forward with “Leslie Vernon” and other horror projects. I was reminded how absolutely great “Behind the Mask” was. A brilliant combination of humor and horror. More people need to see that movie. (Link below).

We also got to talk about Hollywood and production moving forward after Covid. As well, as career change and quality of life. Covid has given us all pause to step back and re-evaluate what’s really important. David had some great insight about that. Also, had a chance to have a mini “Packers v. Bears fan” battle. A battle I quite often lose. As I did here. Touche, David. “Stewie” and I have actually been friends for years. Haven’t seen much of each other the last few years. It was great to catch up.

Great guy, great show.

“Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon” on Amazon.
