Kirk Saffle’s new “Pain And Passion” EP is one of the favorite collections of music I’ve heard this year. This is a short review/preview. If you’d like to attend the EP release party on 9/21 at the Acorn Theater, you can get tickets at the link below:

I’ve been doing some open mics when my schedule permits. In the process, I’ve met some very fun comics. I thought it would be a good idea to do something to showcase local comics in a panel discussion about stuff. This is that. I’ll be doing this on a semi-regular basis (as stated in the title) so that new local comics can come in and give their perspectives. My inaugural comedy roundup featured Chris Rahe and Jim Kliss, two very funny comics who both came from a good distance to be on the show.

This episode has mature language and mature themes. If you don’t like that kind of stuff, skip it and come back for my next interview.

You can find Jim Kliss and his podcast, 2 Guys, a Girl, & a Goblin here:

Everyone’s Got a Thing

You can find Chris Rahe at local open mics and as a featured performer at The Drop Comedy Club
