Welcome to Season 4…sort of.
Season 1 was such a long time ago and we’d love it to stay that way looking back. Sound issues and a steep learning curve for everyone in the crew made for FORGETTABLE moments :). LOL. SO we propose this: if you’re new to CFS, start with Season 2, you’ll love out and thank us for it! And we will provide you in Season 4 with the best from Season 1.
Let’s start here in episode 1 with a tighter version of an interview we had with Liz Lockre and Adrian X. Adrian X, is a touring guitarist for Drake, The Weekend, Kylie Minogue and others as well as the soulful R & B singer/songwriter, Liz Lokre. We hear stories from the road and the studio and the play Liz’s hit single “Rise Up” live in-studio unplugged and totally raw; an amazing exclusive! Also in this episode, we chat B-Movies with our resident cult-follower, Rob; PLUS Thudman and I present our own B-Movie!!
This week Toph and the Thudman bring us a few of their favourite bits from Season 1. We get a fresh take on the Participation Coach of the Year! Re-written and recorded, this hall of fame master of nothing is even more ridiculous and actually more believable at the same time! We finish our time with the stunning soul and funk voice of Liz Lockre and the cool and steady master, Adrian X! We chat gigging, Spotify, the industry…and Adrian’s massive collection of priceless guitars. AND we get a tune from Liz that she swore she wasn’t going to play before it was released, so this is extra special on so many levels! All this, and “Judge Thudman” holds court over some of the most bizarre laws in history…this week, many involve animals. Uh Oh…here come the letters!!
The Thudman is on a roll this week and we are richer for it! He dazzles and amazes us with just how moronic we are as a species with TRUE stories from around the world. Then…in Canada, there is a Province, and that Province is Ontario. Ontario is vast and wonderful; rich with rocks, rivers, streams and big cities like Ottawa, the capital of the entire country of Canada….and Toronto, the capital of this particular Province. And it is here that things go to hell in a handbasket… Thudman elaborates in VIVID colour, and with a special guest!! We bring back the best of an interview with Canadian rock legend, Carl Dixon and HE has a row with the local operator. It’s all in one tight 30-minute package believe it or not 🙂
This week, The Comedy Fusion Show Original: “Bond 26th: ‘Never Get Hard Again’ is met with a diabolical new nemesis! Is Connery-Bond up for the challenge? More horrific and nightmarish than B-Movie horror is a real-life tragedy; we have both this week. Back from season 1 is part 2 of our time with Coney Hatch/The Guess Who/April Wine lead singer and solo artist, Carl Dixon. Man, this show flies this week!!!
This week we have it all! Toph and Thudman bring us more 100% true and published stories from around the world that human beings are actually guilty of doing or engaging in. We are a really stupid species, and this proves it! PLUS we have TWO guests this week; Rob joins us for another deep dive down into the depths of the b-movie sub-genre of film, and this week we wrap up HORROR! AND we revisit the time we spent with the famed funnyman, voice actor and puppeteer Frank Meschkuleit!! From his time with Jim Henson’s Muppets and his starring voice in Toopy and Binoo, he has stories from “behind the mic” that will have you rolling on the floor laughing. For those who watched “Fraggle Rock” as kids…yeah, you’ll love this!
Today Thudman and Toph cover a lot of ground and we are all richer for it! Professor Thudman presides over another laugh-out-loud lecture hall of Laws. The irony this week is that when we get back together with The Poddy Buddies, Tank is outed for being guilty of what could have been an error that likely needs a law attached to it to save future generations from themselves. Our in-studio guests this week are Canadian independent filmmakers Frankie and Julian Reale. They are the creators of the critically acclaimed indie film “SHAPES”, the WINNER of the “Best Narrative Mid-Length Film” at the 2019 Independent Talents International Film Festival. These guys really bring it so you need to catch this.
The world has gone stark raving mad and Thudman pushes our faces in it with another session called “The World and it’s People”. Then if that wasn’t crazy enough, wait ’till you hear the next edition of “Tank and His Dad”; a runaway cult classic already from our time with “The Poddy Buddies”. This true-life story takes what we are capable as a species to a whole new hilarious high! All this, plus part 2 of our time with indie filmmakers Julian and Frankie Reale. Somehow they survive the carnage left behind by the rest of this episode of Comedy Fusion Show…but just barely.
This episode of Comedy Fusion Show is a 3-ring circus of madness and mayhem!! Opening with a cameo drop-in by “Donnie Trump” should have been enough but NOOOOO! His distaste for the media prompted the Poddy Buddies to recount THEIR own foul-ups, bleeps and bloopers while members of that industry. And let me tell you…this is a lot like finding out what really happens behind the scenes in “that sketchy restaurant” we all have in our home towns that we know about and avoid. Then we close with heresy! YES, good old fashioned hilarious heresy because why not? This is a COMEDY fusion show after all :). May the peace be with you…(I think that’s how it goes).
Today on the big show, Thudman opens up about what Northern Ontario cottage living can be like in the Fall; and it is not as sexy and glampourous as we all might think…..if in fact we had ever given it a second thought ever in our lives that is. The Canadian National Anthem has undergone several lyrical changes over the years and the Poddy Buddies have one more. Musical guest is singer/songwriter Matt Zaddy. He has been a career touring musician and this week’s portion of his time with us leaves with a major plot twist!
