LSQC95 – Jesse Campbell

Lenny Schmidts Quarantine Comedy: Jessi Campbell (LSQC95) If you’re tuning in at, please like the video. SUBSCRIBE to the channel to help keep us going.

We talked with Jessi Campbell today. First, I, I mean the Westview kids, misspelled Jessi Campbell everywhere… and she didn’t tell me. So I blame her. We talked about the parenthood, lots of travel, cruise ships, delicate balance of family with a two stand-up parent household, we even dabbled in politics. Usually that’s a “No-no”, but since we are bothe pretty hard core moderates…. we agreed on pretty much everything. That almost NEVER happens.

A great comic, whom I have worked with quite a few times. I was aware she was a writer as well. I was not aware that she cranks out 3-5 scripts a year. 3-5 A YEAR!!!! What the Hell? Another guest who’s better than me. I suck.

Catch more of Jess on her website.

Thanks Jess….

LSQC93 – Vince Maranto

Lenny Schmidts Quarantine Comedy: Vince Maranto (LSQC93)


LSQC93 was Vince Maranto night. Vince is one of a handful of people I’ve had on this show that I’ve known for over 25 years. Yeah, we’re old. We talked about alot of stuff you would expect from two Chicago guys. Sports and food. A lot of baseball, Trubisky, Rosatis, and the McRib. Ya know, the important stuff.

We also talked about the Chicago comedy scene. Vince is a Chicago Stand-up vet. Every comedy pro that has gone through Chicago knows Vince Maranto. They even used his name for a character on a sitcom. (His name, not him, so his name gets residuals… it’s a union thing)

He’s been around a while. Probably will be a while longer…. as long as he lays off the McRibs.

Check out more on Vince’s Facebook Page and his Website

Thanks Vince…. and Thank You for watching!!

LSQC92 – Jorge Solano

Lenny Schmidts Quarantine Comedy: Jorge Solano (LSQC92)

Jorge Solano is a Carnival Comedy Legend. He’s been performing on their stages years before the Punchliner was even a thought. He was even the Cruise Directer on the first cruise ship I ever worked. We caught up on old times, talked Carnival, cruising, comedy, and health. Jorge went through a long period of soreness and pain. He used the time during quarantine to get healthy. He owes it all to Protocol525 It changed his life. he feels better than ever, most important… NO MORE PAIN!! It enabled him to live his life again. He can walk, move, exercise…. he lost a ton of poundage and is down to healthier fighting weight. Jorge is ready to attack clubs and cruise ships when the fog is lifted.

LSQC89 – Marcus Anthony

Lenny Schmidts Quarantine Comedy: Marcus Anthony (LSQC89)


It was my pleasure to have Marcus Anthony on the show. Beautiful man with a beautiful voice. Marcus has been singing and performing live for years. I’ve seen him perform on ships dozens of times. We show a clip here, AND he leaves us with a song to close it out. He also let’s us in on his embroidered line of hats and t-shirts, that proudly display the words “Let’s Breathe Together”. A perfect slogan for these times. Marcus found a way to add a career, a business, and make a loving statement at the same time.

You can get much more info from Marcus, and contact him about where to by his merch at:
