LSQC183 – Tim Slagle comes in. Covering a lot tonight. Some good, some bad, hopefully some funny.

Tim is a great comedian who I have known for quite a while. Soild writer, risk taker, and creative. he’s fun to watch on stage and even more fun to talk to. We talked about the 10th annual “Crash and Burn” show live in Minneapolis this Sept 28 – Oct 2. Four comics work a whole week together. One rule, all new material. They start Tuesday with that new material. Each comic does twenty minutes every show. They work on that new material every show. They have writing sessions during the day, even one session with audience members. By that Saturday, they have a new twenty minutes. It’s a brilliant, creative, interactive, and original idea from Tim. Last years show was via Zoom (covid), which inspired Tim to have one of the shows on YouTube live (Sept 30th). See Covid wasn’t all bad. πŸ˜‰ Go to the “Crash and Burn” Facebook page and “Like” it. You’ll get updated on info.

Tim also has his very own TV show. “Stand-up Sit Down” airs in the Chicago area at 9:30PM CST on channel 59.3. You heard me. Not in Chicago? Fine go to VpodTV.com or get the Vpod app on Roku to catch the stream.

Used to do a podcast with this guy. It coming back. Let’s talk about it 2nite with Robert Robbins on LSWC182. . Looking forward to relaunching the “Not Your Fathers Show” podcast with Robert.

LSQC182 was about as close to a NYFS show as we’ve ever gotten. Kids, relationships, communication, mental health before during and after the lockdowns…. Robin and I cover numerous subjects form several POV’s. We are both parents. Both live in California, The big difference is he is a trained and licensed child and teen therapist, I tell dick jokes.

Again, you’re welcome. Look for the relaunch of “Not Your Fathers Show” in early September.

Thanks Robin

LSQC181 – Let’s β€œTalk to Cathy”. Cathy Katz joins us @6PST 2nite. People are starting to go back out and interact. Some of you forgot how to do that. I know I did. Let’s talk to a relationship expert. Figure it all out before we go back in to lock down and forget again. What a blast. Cathy is a communication expert, a relationship expert. Communicating with honesty and negotiation what you want and compromising with your partner……. seems to make so much sense. Whether you are an alpha, a beta, a decider, a follower… different types of people look for different types of partners. Cathy explains it so even I can understand it.

She even has a weekly Zoom class focusing on communicating. Want to join? You should. Go to https://talktocathy.com/.

All the info on Cathy and her classes can be found at her site.

Thanks Cathy…. ….. and Thank You for watching!!

LSQC180 – Jimmy Shubert returns.

Opened for Sam Kinison and Carl Labove as one of the “Outlaws of Comedy”. From Philly, lived in LA, now lives in Florida….. This is his second appearance on the show. The first one he set the ground rules on “swearing” and how far we were willing to go. So, there’s that.

It took almost 35 minutes for Jimmy to get worked up. But, he did not disappoint. We talked about the passing of Carl Labove, a mentor to him. People minding their business. We pointed out the difference between our discussions now and 20, even 10 years ago. What used to be cocaine, last calls, and late nights has turned to wellness shots, diet, and quality of life conversations. Bottom line, we are still alive.

Thanks Jimmy

Behind on the podcast yet again.

LSQC is dark until July 21. let’s mtake that opportunity to get caught up with podcast episodes, heh?

LSQC177 – A return for the hard working, talented, young, “I have my whole life ahead of me” Jarren Pointer. A natural born musician. It’s in his blood. Literally. His Mom performed while pregnant with him. So, that makes him a music baby…? I’m not sure. But, he is one of the most talented people I know.

We caught up on how much he got done during covid. A whole bunch of new music. Album is right around the corner.

Thanks Jarren….. and Thank You for listening.

LSQC176 has Scott Henry on Live Stream 2nite. Comic and all around classy guy. Live on YouTube – LennySchmidtComedy channel Scott and I go back a few years. He’s a great comic and actor. We covered a lot of bases 2nite. The stupid Packers, Aaron Rodgers, the unemployment lie, and everyones favorite most recent subject…. GETTING BACK TO NORMAL.

Scott moved to Kentucky. That’s right, you heard me. He and his wife were actually ahead of the game. They left Hollywood for the Midwest before Covid even reared it’s ugly head. The two of them were also ahead of the “building and sustaining a career in the entertainment industry outside of Hollywood, NY or any of the other typical places. That seems to be the norm now. Covid has pushed quite a few people in that direction. You can be anywhere in the world and do just about anything. The entertainment world has opened up, along with numerous opportunities and platforms. Scott and his wife Catherine jumped right in. Their platform of choice…..? Clubhouse.

Clubhouse is an “invite only” app. It’s live audio interaction with thousands of people on different channels, pages, platforms, etc. Scott and Catherine run “The Comedy Lounge”. They offer hours and hours of programming available to platform members world wide. I’ve been on quite a few times. Live/real time interaction with comics, or those interested in comedy 24/7. Comics can bring in new material and run by others…. Check in with entertainers world wide…. Get involved in “Guess the punchline”, “Insert joke here” or any other of number of shows offered on TCL. You can even catch top comedians and industry professionals popping in, or sitting in for a scheduled “Q&A”. Names like Jeff Fowxorthy, Craig Robinson, Eddie brill, Finesse Mitchell…. just to name a few. “Clubhouse” is a new game in town. Scott and Catherine got in early. Making it happen now.

Download the “Clubhouse” App. Search “The Comedy Lounge” and join in on something new and fun.

Thanks Scott

2nite we feature Mr. Spencer James on LSQC175. He’s a comedian and filmmaker. He makes me refer to him as Mr. Spencer James. Full name and a MR. He’s very strict.

Spencer reminded me last time we worked together that some guy had a heart attack during his set. DURING HIS SET!! It was insane. He moved during Covid, almost bought a house right at the beginning of Covid. He (thankfully) dodged that bullet. Naturally the housing market came up. We also chatted about starting out. Cruise ships.. and relationships. He is in one, I am not. His started as a threesome…. now it’s a twosome…. might be a threesome again….. It was a lot to take in.

Spencer took the “off” time during Covid to learn to work with a camera. Like a good camera. Really quality high end work. Shooting documentary style video. Beautiful high quality work that you cans see on his site and insta. In fact, he and I will be working together on a ship in August.

2nite on LSQC173 the one and only Seth Buchwald. Actor/Comedian/Mini-Batmobile driver. We talk comedy and the long awaited restart of Cruise ships.

So cool to see Seth. We did talk about ships and comedy. Seth is one of those guys who lets the show come alive. We are quite similar that way. Oh, he has an idea where he’s going when he gets there. However, it’s so much a script as it is numerous suggestions. He plays the room and lets whatever happens, happen. Ya really have to see him live and be “part” of his thing. In fact, His new CD “Zingity Zing” is all the best of his live crowd work. Want one? Yes you do, just just e-mail him – comedyseth@gmail.com and he will set you up.

We also talked a lot about parenthood. Seth has twins, who made a surprise appearance. Toddlers. YIKES!! The constant advice , input, and corrections, opinions, and input for people who don’t have kids. Always a treat. I’m a big fan of being told I’m doing it wrong by someone who has never been puked and pooped on every night at 4am for 6 nights straight by some one who can somehow project puke and poop out substances that are twice their body weight.

Seth is from Ohio. He does a lot of work with Milestones Autism Resources. A great Ohio based charity that works hard to improve the lives of individuals on the autism spectrum by educating, coaching and connecting the autism community with evidence-based information. You can find them at https://www.milestones.org/

Like he said in the show.. want a CD? Just e-mail him – comedyseth@gmail.com

Thanks Seth… and Thank You for watching.
