The erudite Brian Earl: comedian, improv genius, and savant, guides Andy through the Willy Wonkian aisles of Standard Restaurant Supply in Salt Lake City. (Where all the restaurants get their stuff.) The perils of first dates for comedians, drinking out of shoes, Dad jokes as population control.
John Florence, host of KRCL’s “A Brand New Day” (weekdays 6-10am on KRCL 90.9FM), walks Andy through Sutherland’s, John’s favorite local hardware store. Andy picks up an Oklahoma accent, reveals the healing power of the “shath,” and the two explore the merits of the latest digital mousetrap.
Tim Duffy, comedian, writer guy for Comedy Central, takes Andy along on his daily commute from Staten Island into the city. It’s an everyday trip Tim’s been taking for years, but Andy still finds it exotic, which makes him feel a little like a hayseed. Also, on this Valentine’s episode, Andy gets into the thick of it re: what it means to be in love at 41 and how he’s worried he’ll have to start closing the kitchen cabinet doors when he’s finally living with someone for the first time. (Note: Staten Island Ferry is noisy so the audio isn’t perfect here.)
