We went to a taping of this radio show tonight, and had a blast. It's much funnier in real life than on the radio--possibly because you get a lot more of his jokes because they're local.
He ripped on Greeley (the town hosting the show) for its feed lots and smell, and almost picked Jenine to play the quiz (I told her to flash him!). Someone won a shitload of rocky mountain oysters (bull balls), and another guy won 150 pounds of potatoes. It's a tossup which one I'd want least
If you ever get the chance to go see a radio show be taped, do it. We also saw an e-town taping last year, and it was a totally different experience. Lots of sound level checking on e-town (they edit and do a lot of post-production) whereas Whad'ya Know was very spontaneous and free-flowing, as befits a live show.
Oh, and someone was giving out books afterward. I now have a new paperback thriller to read on the plane. Hopefully it won't turn out to be some dreary Christian shit. Hmm, there's an idea for a business--writing novels that incorporate agendas. The novels can be handed out as freebies, subtly exposing the twelve people in America who can read to the agenda of a corporation or religious group.
If editing books with cute animals falls through, it's good to know I can come up with stupid business ideas that will probably sound good to a venture capitalist. Shame that petfood online has been done
