Guest(s): Grant Lindahl, Bryan Preston, & Mike Finazzo
Hola Digheads! Similar to a group of sweaty juggalos in a field in the mid-west of America, we have quite the gathering on this show! Mike Moran was shampooing his hair, so Josh had Mike Finazzo and Bryan Preston take up co-host duties to interview the young, the wonderful – comedian Grant Lindahl!
Grant’s stand-up style is a mix of traditional joke telling, musical integration, dramatic intros (ie being carried on a stage in a papoose), possessing spirit animals, and sometimes – he takes his shirt off (ladies!). For instance, Grant shares a story of orchestrating a ninja fight at the DC Improv and pretending to be in throws of an acid trip on stage. You can see that here.
Grant is also freelance animator and director based in Baltimore, Maryland. He is currently working on his BFA in Animation at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Grant recently published, “My Expensive Hobby,” a book about his experiences in the Baltimore comedy scene over the course of four months.
We also discuss a number of topics for this episode including, but not limited to: growing up on a farm, cursing in front of grandparents, pogs, ninja stand up, alt comedy, art students, and so much more!
