Hola DigHeads! This week we bid a fond farewell to a DigSesh regular and one on Baltimore’s best comedians, Tim Hoeckel! No, he’s not terminally ill, or being deported, or upset about Josh and Mike‘s blatant plagiarization of his patented “Tim Hoeckel Shuffle”, he’s just moving to North Carolina for some reason.
On this episode we talk about Tim the hardships of the comedian’s life, Sammy Davis and his relationship with the Church of Satan, and the hardships of pooping at the beach (sand not water).
We wish Tim well in his life in the South, where we assume he will be performing exclusively at tent revivals and Waffle Houses. Thanks Tim Hoeckel! Baltimore will truly miss you!
And if you’re nasty, can you please subscribe to Digression Sessions in Stitcher, or maybe leave a positive comment and 5 star rating on iTunes. Also, all of Josh and Mike’s stand-up and improv performance dates are in the “Calendar” section of the website! Come see us live! Love you!
Hola DigHeads! This week we speak to two of our favorite comedians in Baltimore, nay the milky way! That’s right, on this episode Josh and Mike get the distinguished pleasure to speak to stand-up comedians/improv actors, Josh Kuderna and Mike Moran!Josh mostly handles the Mike Moran questions, while Mike focuses more on talking about himself.
No, this is not some desperate attempt to scrape together an episode for the week due to a cancelation and inability to find a last-minute replacement; this is a desperate attempt to scrape together an episode due to a cancelation and lazy unwillingness to find a last-minute replacement!
Seriously though, this turned out to be a great conversation. We get silly and in-depth and barely quote The Simpsons randomly! We converse about our lives and where we are in the local world of Baltimore comedy.
Hola DigHeads! This week we have the very funny and interesting stand-up comedian Rob Farley! Don’t let Rob’s beard, tattoos, and having worked at the City Paper fool you, Rob is no hipster, as he makes clear in this ep! In just a year of doing stand-up, Rob has risen from the vacant depths of just being a funny guy to featuring at local shows and even opening for Doug Stanhope!
Hola DigHeads! This week Josh and Mike are joined by comedian, Nik Oldershaw. Nik is a very funny young man and (we’re pretty sure) the first teenager ever on the Dig Sesh (well, voluntarily at least).
Don’t let little Nikky’s age fool you. His standup is leaps and bounds beyond most, and not just because he exposes the unnoticed link between Stephen King and random homoerotica. Nik started doing stand-up at just 16 (when Josh and Mike were still learning basic shapes and farm animals, respectively) and in three years has made his way up to headlining comedy shows.
It’s a damn good thing modern science has proven the futility of drinking the blood of the young to inherit their talents and youthfulness, else Josh and Mike would be chugging viles of type Oldershaw product like Big Gulps!
On this week’s show we talk with Nic about his early career back in the dark-ages of comedy that was 2010. Also, things get kind of dark half-way through when Mike and Nic begin shedding light on their favorite closeted skeletons. Bout’ to get depressingly personal up in this piece! We also discuss Stephen King, how to treat ladies and of course Methods of Mayhem.
Mark and Kathy are both Baltimore based stand ups and improvisers. Mark has a dry wit, a penchant for one-liners and a delivery that relishes awkward silence. While Kathy has more of a story based approach to stand up, which mixes in a healthy bit of social commentary as well.
