This week’s guest on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show is Edmonton comedian, Patrick Danger. In this first of two parts, Danger spills all to Nick “Don’t be a Superhero” McQuik, Jamee “David Duchovny’s in my pocket” Nall, and Tom “Tom” Brent on where and what he consumes. Burgers? Yes. TV? Absolutely. Movies? Is there any other kind?! This episode tiptoes on the edge of a Tinder date where listeners decide why they didn’t swipe right sooner. The show crests just at the end when the pizza arrives. Stay tuned to next week when we find out what toppings were ordered!! Thanks for stopping by and stripping down.
With the NFL draft right around the corner and a lack of fresh talent in the northern hemisphere, the Quik & Slow Comedy Show invited Alex Fortin and Ben “I left my leg in my other pants” Proulx to discuss Fantasy Football. That’s right, this week on the show James Ross and Nick McQuik get schooled on what it means to manage a fantasy football team. These are real Canadians with real opinions regarding the National Football League; a league that is represented in a completely different nation. This episode has all the excitement of a fantasy NASCAR league. It’s not all sports, fans. There are also funny jokes that create joy like when we learn the real reason for Easter. Whatever the outcome, we blame the refs. Thanks for tuning in!
Today on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show, slow-host, Aaron Maslow, interviews St. Paul comedian and former armed forces trigger hound, Luke Borchardt. Originally from Wisconsin, Luke currently resides in a Minnesotan RV. He took a little vacay to Denver, CO by way of aerobus on what no one is calling the Mile High Tour. While in Denver, he made a point to visit the show and discuss life in an RV, open mic comedy cliques, birth control vs. roadside bombs and assisting homeless veterans whilst being one. Luke is a stand up guy and has some great insights on what it’s like to work different comedy scenes. Thanks for tuning in.

They’re not special.” All this plus how to make a Subway brand sandwich! Stick around…this is a great show. Enjoy!
This week on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show Whitehorse native, Steve McGovern, talks about life in the Yukon and elsewhere. McGovern is one part comedian, one part teacher-in-training and, when mixed well, well, let’s just say, history/math has never been so fun! Get ready for this delicious treat as James makes the order, Tom questions the order and Nick keeps the order while Jamee orders pizza. Today’s episode features conversation about the saddest joke battle ever, league bowling, meeting the Irish drinking quota (it is a moving target), doing comedy at funerals and the Golf Dome, scoring in Tom‘s bro-point game, and how Nick‘s house stays impeccably clean when his butler, Scott, is on the road. Oh, the irony! Stay tuned for this super duper, fun filled, sock-of-soap lathered edition of the Quik & Slow Comedy Show.
Steve is not available on the internet because the children cannot handle it.
This episode of the Quik & Slow Comedy Show is part two of, well, two.

Some of today’s highlights include relationship advice from Dan; when the sex is bad, it is the canary in the coalmine. Focus on the Family’s film evaluation including The Wolf of Wall Street. Meagan‘s patented (patent pending) hangover cure through intense exercise. A resurgence of the Star Wars debate including Star Wars v. Star Trek: science based or science fiction. And concluding is an interesting introspective of comedy etiquette which delves into the appropriate time is to leave a show and how to respect the audience. Then Scott Porteous shows up! Wow! That is a lot. But just enough to keep listeners coming back for more. Thanks for tuning in. Enjoy!

Meagan is a kick-boxing killer* (*proverbial) on the mic from Calgary who always shows her work doing “fight math”.
Everything starts well enough; entertaining stories about emceeing and how not to threaten your audience with murder. Then we find out about kids fighting. And the time a truck full of oranges tipped over and everyone had oranges to eat. Then the digression into Star Wars where the stories of murder, fights and oranges unite under the guise of intergalactic politics. All this and more on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show!
This week’s edition of the Quik & Slow Comedy Show features budding comedienne, Tamara Appleton. Although new to comedy, Appleton is making a quick transition into the hard knock life of stand up. From road trips to Vancouver to backwoods basements of Alberta, this jokeslinger is quite funny all over. She raps with Nick “Nut Bustering” McQuik and company including James “Hero Man” Ross and Jamee “Flaky Pee” Nall about comedy, pugs dying in their drinking water, explosive couponing, and the big old sass master himself, Ross from the Friends show. And uh oh. Someone leaves the toilet seat up and everyone falls in. Well just Tamara, but still. Ick. Enjoy the show.
Find Tamara on the internet. Because it’s important.

This week on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show, Aaron sits down with Casey Flesch at a coffee shop in St. Paul, Minnesota. Casey is a hilarious comedian in the Twin Cities who carefully breaks down the fundamentals of comedy after spoiling Matt Damon’s movie, “The Martian.” It is a truck-stop-on-the-moon kind of episode as the slowest part of the Quik & Slow, Aaron, draws on about dinosaurs, the differences between the United States and Edmonton, and what it’s like driving for Uber. Go see Casey and his monthly show at The Driftwood Char Bar in Minneapolis.

From Acme, to the Monday Night Show, to Acadia, Aaron gives the play by play that every amateur is not getting paid to hear.

This week on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show, Nick McQuik and Jamee Nall dive deep into the workings of Oberon Zell-Ravenheart.

Welcome to the Quik & Slow Comedy Show where comedians interview comedians about comedy in a basement! This week, hosts Nick McQuik and Jamee Nall rap about a comedy show Nick performed on at Average Joe’s in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, North America, Earth, Milky Way, Universe. Although the events leading up to this show are super hilarious and include stealing cookies and a lack of fitness that can be had in a hotel fitness room, the real lesson here is that social skills are under rated and under utilized especially by the socially inept (i.e. comedians). James Ross shows up with another dude to talk about Hulk Hogan watching his ex-wife’s sex video and Jared Fogle; an easy tie in by all accounts. Enjoy the show!
Liam Leroux is on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show to discuss one thing: Isaac Asimov’s calendar reform initiative from the essay “The Week Excuse“. Imagine a world where every year, January 1st fell on a Sunday. The Super Bowl, Sunday. The day after Christmas, Sunday. Kill Day, Saturday. Liam outlines Asimov’s perspective on a world where every season has 91 days, every year has an extra day, and every four years, a leap-year. How fantastical! Join hosts Nick McQuik and James Ross on this timely adventure where farmers cease to exist and Ethiopia is still living in the year 2013…BC. Enjoy!
Every once in a while, the Quik & Slow Comedy Show opens the basement doors to real talent. This week is just like that. Sitting in with the dashingly dark Nick McQuik and his cantankerous panel of halfwits (Simon “Cleft Palate” Gorsak and “James” Drunk On Rumplemintz “Ross”) is Derrick Johnson and Byron Martin; writers, directors and performers of Fringe Fest’s hit sketch-comedy show, Blackout. They are in studio not only to promote their show’s air conditioned theater, but also to talk about improv as a sport, comedy as a thing and Google Drive…the most collaborative tool since legalized marriage. All marriage. Take the chance and go to the show. It has scored huge success and is, by all accounts, hilarious. Links below. Also, enjoy the podcast.
