Also, Joel eats good at his holiday party, comedians as holograms, and 8 Mile vs 7 Mile. Five big shows with Melanie to head into the holiday. Get your tickets now!
Nick Griffin speaks about the human condition in an angry, nihilistic way. And yet, he is the most relatable comic that you’d ever hope to see, and you’ll leave his show feeling that he’s just like you. Joel certainly felt that as the two bonded over old guy bars, rock and roll concert stories and the devastation of the pandemic. You’ll also hear their mutual love of the great comedian Bobby Slayton, and how Joel’s near-miss with NYC’s The Comedy Cellar could’ve changed his life forever. Nick has five shows this weekend – don’t miss them!
K. Trevor Wilson is an accomplished stand-up comedian, ad probably be best known as “Squirrely Dan” from the Canadian TV show Letterkenny. Before his headlining weekend at The Comedy Castle, he tells Joel about the origins of the show, developing his style in Toronto’s “pot shows”, appearing on the wild Last One Laughing TV show, and why the Letterkenny guys – live – are very different from The Trailer Park Boys. Plus, lots of pro-wrestling talk! Hear about Trevor’s early love for the sport and how his fame has helped him enjoy it more. Just don’t work with The Iron Sheik! There’s five shows with Trevor this weekend, get your tickets now!
