Jakethis of Jake Johannsen

It's just you and me this week as I celebrate Christmas the old fashioned way: by rambling on for the better part of an hour about what's on my mind. Polar Bears, Super Models and Russian orphans.  I cover some ground from my hotel room in New York City.  Let's live a little for once in our lives.  Get the whiskey and some headphones. Find out where I am going next at jakethis.com and thank you all for another great year!

Nigel returns from Canada for an in house chat about a lot of things.  Wild moose, mechanical bulls and Santa Claus are all covered in this pre-Christmas spectacular.  Sometimes I wonder if anyone reads these things and if I am wasting my time.  I almost typed Santa Clause instead of Santa Claus.  There's your Easter Egg.  Thank you for listening.  Check my whereabouts at jakethis.com.

OK Joe is not currently a cheater. But he wrote a humorous book about cheating called "Cheat" with Robert Kelly and Bill Burr.  Joe De Rosa is comedian, a friend and an author.  We talked about all that plus drinking, eating and depression.  Check Joe out at his website http://www.joederosacomedy.com/  Check me aout at my website jakethis.com  Check us both out at a nightclub.  Enjoy the show and then buy Joe's book at Amazon  That was all a little bossy.  I apologize.  I am trying to help.  Thanks for listening. Would it kill you to write a positive review on itunes? That was rhetorical.

Tom Wilson phones in to save the day after internet snafus destroy a conversation between two lonely men in Canada.  Nigel and I were the lonely men in Canada and Tom Wilson is a friend of mine.  Tom is also an accomplshed actor and a musician and a painter.  Tom wrote a book and has his own podcast called Big Pop Fun.  He tours the Universe as a stand-up comedian and is a happily married father of four.  How does he find the time to talk to me on the phone?  He's my life coach.  It's his job.  Unpaid but still.  Please enjoy Tom.  And as always my whereabouts can be found at jakethis.com.

Nigel Skypes in from far Eastern Cananda and I sit down after a show in Sacramento to talk with comedian John Ross.  He is a funny man with a dark past. Lapsed Christian.  Born addicted to methadone.  He makes that funny onstage and we have some laughs backstage with his girlfriend Nanci and last week's returning guest Joe Klocek.  Here is a link to John's website.  Here is a link to Joe's website. You know I'm at jakethis.com.  I don't think that Nanci has a website. Also Nigel and I discuss the age old dilema of sword or hatchet plus crashing the renaissance fair dressed as robots.

On a recent gig in Sacramento, the State Capitol, I had some fun shows with my friend Joe Klocek.  So now he's on the podcast. You can check out Joe's comedy at his website standupJoe.com.  He's had some bad luck with the ladies and we talk about it.  Joe has never had a massage and he is a full grown California resident.  I think a good massage can really help you get through a tough time.  But I digress... as always.  Check me out at jakethis.com and I will see you at the nightclub.

My guest this week is Frank Gannon.  He is one of my most interesting friends.  We met when Frank was a segment producer on Late Night which was David Letterman's show on NBC before he moved to CBS.  We talk about his days working for Letterman.  We talk about a previous job he had working for Richard Nixon.  We also discuss bacon and ice cream.  There is something for everyone.  Nigel and I connect on the phone to discuss the possibility of doing the show entirely on the phone.  (Probably not going to happen.)  Check jakethis.com for my whereabouts and click here for a story Frank wrote about Bill Hicks last appearance on Letterman.

Nigel checks in from Canada to fulfill podcast obligations.  We drink some tea and discuss our survival strategies from my house to his mom's house.  At times it may seem like we are on a drug but that is not the case unless my wife and his mom rufied us.  That would be weird to say the least.  I can't remember if I had sex later that night or not though now that I'm thinking about it.  Please enjoy this week's talking and check jakethis.com for my whereabouts.  P.S. It is currently still impossible to dig to China.

I had a chat with my old friend Clark Taylor while I was down in Tampa.  He's the man that married my wife and I.  He can walk the walk and talk the talk.  He can also drink the drink and dance the dance.  He's a man's man who knows what the ladies like.  We covered Burritos to Blowholes.  We had fun.  I hope you like it.  As always check jakethis.com for my whereabouts.  I will see you there.

Two handsome men try to figure some stuff out.  OK, one of the guys is me so there's that but my wife's friends tell her that Nigel is handsome.  One of our biggest chalenges is to figure out how to bring "dial a shot" to the internet in order to videoconference online drinking.  Also discussed are the Olympics , the next Ted Knight, and that woman who washes your hair at the salon (barber shop).  Please listen and see if you can help. Check Jakethis.com for more information about me and my whereabouts.

This episode starts off with a brief contemplation of death at the hands of my colonoscopy doctor and then moves into a contemplation of current events.  Nigel was indisposed so I am forced to go well down the road of losing my mind conversing with myself.  There is also a conversation with my guest Pete who is the owner of the Funny Stop Comedy Club in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.  You can see a photo of the Lebanese Feast we discuss on my website: jakethis.com  Thanks for listening!

Well, I'm getting the hang of it.  Nigel has moved back to Canada. Minor speed bump. Joe Matarese stops by for a story.  There's a movie chat about "Big River Man." Plus I learned some tricks on the computer.  I had to listen to it to edit it and it made me smile.  I'm working on the next one as you read this.  So, Please: Listen.  Enjoy.  And as always... help me. Love, Jake.
