Episode 145: Parker Newman

I’m chatting with comedian Parker Newman in Episode 145.

In this episode Parker and I chat about Liquid Television show’s like The Maxx and The Head and other shows on Liquid Television; beginnings of tribalism in high school football; the burgeoning comedy scene in Sacramento; falling in love with stand-up comedy at the age of 12; taking vocal lessons to sing death metal and learning to Fry Scream; and why his Twitter name is “@parker_tips”.

Thank you for listening, Listeners, and thank you for sharing, Sharers, to my conversation with Parker Newman. Be sure to follow him on Twitter and Youtube.

My girlfriend’s Uncle John passed away after a long and painful battle with cancer. He was not able to get life insurance because of pre-existing health conditions to help offset funeral costs. John was married to my girlfriend’s Aunt Lisa and the both of them love her like a daughter. Any donation you can make would be greatly appreciated by myself and the family.

I will be recording a live episode of my upcoming podcast The Anecdotalists on Tuesday, August 15 at the B Street Theatre. The guests will be Shahera Hyatt, Corky McDonnell, and Daniel Humbarger.
