This week’s guest on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show is by day a day-trader, by night a night rider and all-around comedian, Adam Dyck. Dyck, not to be confused with Rychard, talks to Nick, Jamee and Scott Porteous about doing comedy for free until they they mention there is beer; crying in the green room with a gun in his mouth and a belt around his neck (oh, wait, that was Nick); and the secret word! This episode contains lots of goodies including a short list of rich cheeses, pulling out of the tail-spin that is bombing on stage, and the best coffee in Edmonton (hint: it’s Transcend and please tran-send the endorsement check to Jamee at Nick‘s house asap). Adam is running a variety show for charity like the Muppet Show but with more comedy, so check it out. Enjoy the show everybody.
This week, after hearing brand new intro music from bensound, six-year veteran of comedy, Jon Mick, joins Nick, Jamee and Scott Porteous on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show. Jon shares tales about working with Neil Hamburger, writing as meditation and lobster races. This chef turned electrician turned comedian turns it up when he discovers that he is a hip-hop Drew Carey with a Fred Durst attitude. Jon is a solid guy and an excellent comedian. His stories are funny and evocative. Happy listening.
In this week’s episode of the Quik & Slow Comedy Show, comedians play the drinking version of Cards Against Humanity. For those unfamiliar, Cards Against Humanity lets players respond to the dealer’s question card with the most appropriate or inappropriate response. The ensuing hilarity is laced in comical innuendo and wit. Ok, not wit. Vulgarity. Either way, it’s a surefire combo for fun!
Today’s guest on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show is musical comedian, Solly KP. He is here to talk to about playing the keyboard and singing songs. As a short, Jewish person, he is very soft-spoken. As a tall, Catholic, he’s loud and crass. Originally from Calgary, Solly resides in Lethbridge where he is working on a degree in “stuff” while pursuing a dream career as a comedian. After a year in the game, he tells Nick, Carina Morton, Josh Coss and Jamee Nall all about the dirt in Lethbridge comedy. Is there any? Find out as this boat-hating, curly-hair having, fast-tongue talking boy gives listeners a thrill! Enjoy.
There’s a good chance listeners spent last Christmas with their loved ones or a favorite pet. Unfortunately for Nick McQuik, Jamee Nall, Scott Porteous and Will Robson, pets are hard to come by…even around the holidays. This episode of the Quik & Slow Comedy Show is set on Jesus’s first day of a 33 year battle with life. There’s no cure. Wear a ribbon. It has a little bit of everything: hate for juice and WWII vets, drag queens, and throwing up blood. It’s funny if tragedy is giggle-able. Well, shit. Here it is.
When a person has a birthday, it’s usually special. Otherwise, why would anyone be born? The answer: horny dads and slutty moms and a healthcare industry that thrives on the blood of newborns and smokers.
Alex is back to talk to Nick McQuik, Jamee Nall and Will Robson about his comedic endeavors in comedy since the last time he came. In the basement. The last time he came in the show…on the show.
Life has been pretty sweet for this transforming youngster. He performed in Las Vegas with Nick. He used Tinder. He had a sexual encounter in Cranbrook, BC so sumptuous it’ll make listeners look up Cranbrook on a map. He has a podcast just like everyone else. He has an open mic that no one goes to. He has hope.
Any comedians looking to expand his literal/proverbial/actual horizons will certainly appreciate this delectable voyage as one man tells how he grows into an older man. It’s quite fascinating. So stick around and enjoy the show!

Brent Ehtun is “eh” ton–of fun–fffffff…it rhymes, guys…on this week’s episode of the Quik & Slow Comedy Show. Brent is new to comedy and talks to Nick, Jamee and Sam Wattertemple about starting off in comedy. Nick and the gang discuss the writing process, bombing for considerable amounts of time, committing to a joke and agreeing with Nick. This episode is chocked full of nuts. Enjoy.
Listeners will also hear who are the best new comedians in Edmonton, what it takes to have fun and eat pizza, what Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was doing in the CFL, and all about #gingersvsalbinos: The Night War…available where ever stuff that doesn’t exist gets sold. And, as it turns out, nothing cripples the Edmonton comedy scene worse than trampolines.
Tune in, turn out and let the hard tacos fly because this episode is as funny as it is hilarious and that’s the “truth”.
Nadine Hunt is the guest on this week’s episode of the Quik & Slow Comedy Show or, as Jamee puts it, the Ginger Whore Penis Show. Although relatively new to comedy, Hunt has learned a lot about being productive on and off the stage. She sits down with Nick and Jamee to talk about how a gay woman can find a supportive community in comedy. As Nick‘s father always shouted at the top of his lungs in the bare wilderness of the Arctic tundra, “Nothing is more supportive to a community than dick jokes.” Nadine is deep into the 90’s rap game and joined Twitter with the sole intent of stalking pop music icon, P!nk. She is in a comedy contest in Calgary on the 18th and talks about what it takes to prep for it. This episode is filled with great tools for comedians starting out as well as information about emergency penis surgery. Enjoy!
Howie Miller is visiting the Quik & Slow Comedy Show to talk about his 18 years in comedy and television. This episode features stories and advice for anyone starting in comedy or grinding his “hustle muscle” as Nick always says. This is as big a guest as the show has ever had in every way except size (see Matt Alaeddine, ep171-3. ) and he doesn’t disappoint. Stick around and enjoy this installment with Jamee, Nick, Sam and the whole Quik & Slow gang!
On a grim side note; former co-host and current webmaster, Aaron, has a brother-in-law, Dave, who is real, real sick. His liver is in bad shape and without a liver transplant it is dire. Please donate money to his family so that his remaining time can be spent focusing on things that are important and not hospital expenses. Thank you. www.gofundme.com/DaveLuedke
Today, the Quik & Slow Comedy Show is happy to host all around mover and shaker, Dan Johnstone. Dan joins cohort, Evan Charot, and a hodgepodge of loony tunes in Nick‘s basement as he discusses his charity, Can Man Dan, as well as a new movie release. Jamee is going to be there and so is Will Robson and Scott Porteous. All good people. Listen in because there is an audio clip from a film movie. This is one raucous episode full of funny stories and outrageous stories all in sonnet form!
Huge thanks to Benjamin Isaac for listening to the show and sending whisky!
Nick, Jamee, Dion, Sam and the whole group at the Quik & Slow Comedy Show welcome Pete Morley back from last week. He’s back. He has a back. He eats back meat. He is doll filled with gel. Listen. This is a great episode for anyone who asks…especially any committee members from the board of directors. Holy Smokes!
The Quik & Slow Comedy Show is happy to present this week’s guest, Pete Morley. Pete is first a man and foremost a comedian; formerly the latter and holds ladders for the former. This week, Nick and Dion and Jamee and Sam talk to Pete about everything except comedy.
In fact, Pete doesn’t really do comedy anymore even though he moved to North Hollywood to pursue it in keeping with his dream to be in the television business. They say, “There’s no business like show business except car washing and tending to the elderly.” They really do.
Listen, this is a fun episode but only because it is completely bonkers. Prepare to get a nerd boner for Pete and a turd boner for Nick. Jamee is awesome and Dion is there, too. And, who could forget Sam? What a Sam! Please enjoy this episode responsibly.
Humber student and stinky pits Dion Arnold swings by the Quik & Slow Comedy Show to talk to Nick McQuik and guest-host Victoria Banner about comedy. This week the show features a discussion about the comedy scene in Toronto; finding motivation in comedy; and dad jokes. Tune in to find out just how great Dion is!
Joining the Quik & Slow Comedy Show this week is Victoria Banner. She has been in the stand up comedy business for just a short time but has been performing as an improv player for many years. Banner is hilarious and quick off the cuff. Sit back and enjoy this episode as Victoria tells the gang about what it’s like being a funny stand up comedian in the thriving town of Calgary. P.S. Dion Arnold from next week stops in just a bit early to stimulate the olfactories of riotousness.
According to this week’s guest and host of the Quik & Slow Comedy Show, there is no one funnier than he. Nick McQuik couldn’t be more right by his account. He is, in his own words, “Interesting”. Here are some of his thoughts about himself:
Born in the wilderness, Nick killed his way through every animal to make it to civilization. A Jedi of the highest caliber, he lends his twisted mind to his sexy mouth to make an unstoppable combination of Talking/Typing words, sometimes they are funny.
Nick is a comedian, don’t expect too much from him. He hopes to one day fuck in a pawnshop so he can rub that smell of sadness and rip-off buyback pricing into his natural musk. Hopefully the surveillance cameras won’t catch too much of his weird Dick.
Nick’s favorite food is whey protein powder, not mixed with anything; just spoonfuls of raw milk by-product. He is allergic to asbestos and being stabbed. He has been observed drinking red wine or blood, but is more of a Gatorade kind of guy. Owning almost an entire suit he is a man of such class no one can’t even end this sentence properly.
Nick is a proud Ginger-raced man who stands between 5’10 and 6’ tall and does not enjoy being left in the sun light. With and athletic build and even more athletic penis, he is a charm to most people not around him, by comparison. He has often been described smelling of sadness and broken dreams (pawn shop), but tastes more like sweat. Nick’s other measurements are none of your business, and, frankly, you should feel bad for asking.
Most of Nick’s family is dead or wild dogs roaming the wild. When asked of his past, he killed five people. Take heed…this man is a force of nature ready to disrobe and violently bukakai all over you. He is not much of a cat person, and much more of a person because his mom didn’t fuck a cat. To summarize Nick in two words, you would use more. Obviously (see above).
In this 2nd part of 2, Nick is interviewed by some of his closest friends and sister. His life is incredible and weird. Please enjoy this episode as much as possible.
The Quik & Slow Comedy Show is proud to present guest and host, podcast namesake and overall narcissist, Nick McQuik. Nick chats up his buddies this episode (and the next) to bring the listening audience a little glimpse of his life. Find out how he started in comedy, what it takes to be a broken boxer and how to tame Mother Nature.
Born from the witchy cask his pagan mum called a uterus in the icy chills of the Northwest Territories, Nick broke the shackles of isolation and headed for the big city, Edmonton. There, he met people, a relatively new concept for the full-functioning autistic boy.
He joined the football team at an art school. He broke his ankles practicing parquor. He was hit in the head several times by an assortment of bricky objects. He was stabbed and slashed. He made friends. Then he went on to write and perform stand up comedy to the pleasure of many in the community including people. People who would go on to say that Nick’s comedy doesn’t have punchlines…in a funny way.
And in a lot of ways that sums up Nick…and this episode. It is funny without having jokes; a style many have attempted yet only one has achieved. So here is to Nick. Half comedian. Half diesel mechanic. All horse.

Brandon Craig is up from Calgary to get down with the Quik & Slow Comedy Show. This rookie comic lays down how to set goals in stand up comedy, building up a comedy room, his infatuation with octopus porn and baby robot boners. Along side Nick and Jamee is friend of the show, Morris Bartlett, and Cal Gary Ann comedienne, Brittnay Lyseng. Sam Watterwatterbingbang is in Bangkok eating the Ho Chi Minh out of a tranny. And Aaron had his ashes turned into a sapling. Episodes don’t get funnier than this. They get close. Just not too close. Enjoy!
Mike Dambra, a 30 year veteran of comedy, sits down this week with The Quik & Slow Comedy Show for a nice venting session. Most of his stories are either about getting taken or getting jumped. With good reason, too. Mike’s quick wit and ‘New York City’ bravado means his jokes are usually the first punch. Tune in this week because this episode is the teachiest ever done…but in a good way. Join Nick McQuik, Scott Porteous and Sam Watterworth in studio for this riveting episode.

It’s that time again! Time for what? Time for stand up comedy trivia. This week on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show is the conclusion of last week’s grueling trivia challenge. Join Simon‘s team, Josh, and JP‘s team, Gramiak, and Morris and Nick and SAM! And Konrad! Just join the game. Join in because it matters. It’s all stand up trivia and some trivial, petty victim blaming. Then the game ends. But the podcast continues. There is also a time when pizza gets eaten and pigs are defended. Plus learn every comedy show in Edmonton. This is the best kind of episode.
This week concludes the interview with The Dirrty Show on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show. In this second part get ready to laugh and cry as the comedy duo Kayla Williams and Melody Stang explain that good times and drugs can happen anywhere. “[We had] Good times at the bowling alley,” says Williams, “two meth heads and a bowling lane!”
Prepare to enjoy this Red Deerian iconoclast as they prepare for their last show in Canada before leaving for Australia. This show is exciting as listeners gain valuable insight into the reason Nick does poop scenes in porn. And how staying engaged in comedy helps the maturing process. Shout out to all the moms.
CHECK OUT The Dirrty Show TONIGHT (Oct 31)!!!!! THE Vat IN Red Deer!!! SEE THIS BEFORE THEY MOVE TO AUSTRALIA!!!!
The Dirrty Show is this week’s guest on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show. And boy are they dirty! The appropriately named Melody Stang and Kayla (Vanessa) Williams make up this hilariously talented musical duo. This episode covers everything from flying high on an airplane to a man who cuts off his wiener for the sake of becoming a Ken doll. He is called a nullo…Awesome! These ladies are great. Nick‘s mom gives the best sex advice. Breaking a penis in half is no way to finish in bed. Stick around and enjoy this uproarious episode.
Stick around for this amazing round table as Ian discusses his recent weight loss, getting shot in New York and his painful bout with arthritis. There is a good deal of information for any comedian looking to sign with a big club or making the transition into comedy as a full time professional. Thanks for listening. Enjoy!
Comedian Alex Fortin is today’s guest on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show. At just three years into his comedy career, Alex discovered that he is an angry person.
His outrage for things as commonplace as, say, Fiji bottled water, provides Fortin a unique persona that audiences across Canada are eating up! From Kelowna to Regina (that’s right, rye country!), Alex is destroying stages and leaving dead carcasses in his wake from killing audience members in cold blood. Jokes. He tells jokes.
Alex is delightful and fresh off a week long exhibition at the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, America. In addition to some amusing romps about his life on the road, Alex tells Nick McQuik and Jamee Nall about the horror stories of being a stand up comedian. Tune in and enjoy!
This week’s guest on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show is funnyman, Scott Porteous. Scott began as a comedian nearly twelve years ago at age 19 and has actually gotten younger. After, and not because of, taking a hit to the face with a pistol, Porteous opted for a less dangerous life and shipped off to Edmonton. A place, he decided, that is safer because the pistol-whipping is with knives…and is called stabbing.
Today’s guest on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show is the wonderfully charming and sensational, Dan Taylor. Dan has been a pastor his entire adult life and a comedian for all the other times. Nick, Jamee and Sam find out in this episode that Dan wins the SiriusXM’s Top Comic contest in Edmonton. As a result, Dan opened for Russel Peters and earned a spot on Just For Laughs 42 in Toronto. It is an exciting time for Dan and the everyone who listens to the show. Dan is testament to the fun that comes from taking a chance and exposing oneself…wait…yeah. Thanks for listening. Please share or like the Quik & Slow Show on Facebook or Twitter.
This week on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show is the hilarious comedienne, Lisa Baker. Lisa began comedy in karaoke bars in New Foundland after being motivated by a group of high school bullies that she called friends. When a booking agent told her that she shouldn’t tell her jokes because she is a female, Lisa decided to sign with Yuk-Yuks Comedy Club. Nine years later, she has become one of the best comediennes in Canada.
On this episode, listeners learn that Nick is a Jedi and not a Jew, the best way to deal with hecklers is not to give them ammunition and the benefit of telling jokes in a tough room is that it hardens a comic. Find out what a “minivan” is (think anal fisting) and that leaving on a high note is the best thing to do. In Baker’s words, “Let the bitch squirt and be done.” She is a champion for women’s equal rights.
Nick calls it repitar instead of repertoire. Aaron is absent and not missed. Sam Wattercannon is working the sound like a hound. Jamee aims high with her camera. Even Liam Leroux shares some thoughts on the vulgarity of certain words.
This is fantastic! Thanks for stopping in and enjoy the show!
