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.
Here is the first episode for reference: Nick Part 1
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.
Here is the first episode for reference: Nick Part 1
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.

Ian Wallace is always hilarious, usually astute and once a comedian on this week’s episode of the Quik & Slow Comedy Show. Ian calls Calgary home but decided to visit with Nick, Jamee, Sam Watterstein, Aaron and the fill-in host who is better than great, JP Fournier in sunny Boca Edmonton.
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.
This episode is filled with stories about the human struggle. Listeners are going to love it!

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!
Liam has been a comedian for a long time. But he is also a man of expression. He creates on every level and enjoys the journey of living. Find out this episode what it means to be a comedian for the sake of the artistry. This is the second part of a two parter on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show.
Find the first part here.
Every once in a great while the Quik & Slow Comedy Show has an interesting guest to interview. This week is that mark. Comedian, writer, cartoonist, journalist, political activist, soccer enthusiast and not hooligan, Liam Leroux, shares his story. All of his story.
This may be the first episode where the funny business isn’t comedy. Today is more about football and football related facts. But do not be discouraged, chuckle monkeys. This show may have little to do with comedy, but that is exactly how Liam does his comedy. It is subtle and subversive. Liam is remarkable in every way. He embodies what it is to live a full life. Get out there and be a human; do as the humans do, he might say…he doesn’t say that, but he might.
Liam has been a comedian for a long time. But he is also a man of expression. He creates on every level and enjoys the journey of living. Find out this episode what hipster racists are and also what it means to be a comedian for the sake of the artistry. And stay tuned because there will be a second part to this episode next time on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show.
This week’s interview panel includes Nick “This Guy Interviews Himself” McQuik, Sam “I Ask The Questions Around Here” Watterman, Jamee “Taking Body Temperatures” Nall, and Aaron “America Man Is A Compliment” Maslow.
Oh, na huh? Matt Mellon was so hilarious that he has a whole second episode of ridiculous stories about hookers and junk? Well, yes, actually.
The Quik & Slow Comedy Show is pleased as sour cream to introduce the show’s guest, Matt Mellon. Matt originated in Ft. McMurray in the southern stretches of the earth’s polar Arctic. Matt has been a comedian for five years and started telling jokes to polar bears and other exotics like oil men. He is here on the show to talk about his experiences and beliefs.
Matt once performed on the Sirius XM Sound Exchange program and is now making in excess of $175. He is a fan of Nick‘s flame-less candle and once backed down from a fight to a man in a wheelchair. Apparently, just because his legs were broke, didn’t mean his mouth couldn’t run.
As a Charlie Day lookalike, Matt is a real pleasure on the show and in real life. He entertains the masses by attempting to send a Tweet via fax and examines the amazing things hookers could do if they were X-Men.
Sit back and relax for this whirlwind adventure as the whole gang at the podcast takes listeners by the hand for a guided mystical journey. Today the cast includes, Right fielder and centerpiece, Nick McQuik; Guest host and owner of dongfarts.com, Joshua Coss; Intern and pro-women woman, Jamee Nall; Torn pants wearing river boat steward and sound operator, Sam Jetroy Waterwoman; The man who can only stay for an hour more, Liam Creswick; and, I-barely-talk-because-there-are-moths-in-my-mouth, Aaron Maslow.
As a special treat to listeners, this will be a two part series as one part is too few and three is too many. Thanks for coming out. Stay tuned and enjoy!

The Quik & Slow Comedy Show along with the Egg Council is proud to have as a guest, comedian and modern Renaissance Man, Liam Creswick.
Liam is a 5-year comedy veteran. Stand up is just the tip of the iceberg for Creswick who says that successful comedians don’t just perform behind the mic. That mentality drives him to experience every aspect of comedy. Liam is active with the improv group yegDnD, writes and performs sketch comedy with the Debutantes, acts in plays (most recently in Edmonton’s Fringe Fest), is a voice actor, and hosts a variety show each month called Exciting Times. Sometimes he has time to stop and breathe, but only for a moment before getting back to knitting more “Who Farted” t-shirts.
Join the the team and their new sponsor, eggs, for this episode. Nick McQuik recovers from getting hit with a hammer in the liver. Josh Coss, guest host and Success 5000 back-up singer, earns his keep. Jamee “Proudly Sponsored By Cheese” Nall bottles tears of joy. Sam Watterworth produces the face off of the show. And, Aaron Maslow phones it in all the way from the Mid West.
This week is as interesting as it is funny. Listeners are sure to enjoy.
See Liam’s variety show Exciting Times every month. Show times at his website, www.liamcreswick.ca. Or, hire him because he does it all.

This week’s guest on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show is the wonderfully funny and talented Ryan Short. Ryan shares with the alley brute Nick McQuik, an audio specialist Sam Watterworth, a darling Jamee Nall and water-marked digital print-out Aaron Maslow what his comedy is all about.
What Ryan lacks in stature, he makes up with lispiness and shoe extensions. He gets a discount at the shoe store where he works. All height jokes aside, this episode is big. Short is one of the most driven and hard working comedians in Edmonton. His ability to take any (and every) stage he can with the sole purpose of making the audience roar with laughter makes Ryan a force to be reckoned with…or at least weckond with. He has a speech impediment.
This episode is full of foolhardy romps that the whole team here at the show think listeners will love! Thanks for popping in!

Ryan Byrne is a bustling comedy writer, comedian, director, editor, and producer. He is also the guest this week on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show.
Just finishing his award-winning web series, “The People Who Touch Your Food“, and in the planning phase of a second web series, Ryan walks Nick, Aaron (over the Skype), Jamee and Sam through creating and finalizing a creative project. Ryan is ambitious and his experience shines light on how stand up skills transfer over to other forms of comedy. The differences of working alone as a comic versus working with a team makes Ryan a better collaborator and performer.
This episode is enlightening and the whole crew down at the Quik & Slow Comedy Show think listeners will thoroughly enjoy it. Thanks for tuning in!
Ken started his career in stand-up when he was 46 and kicks the assumption that people have to be young to be a great performer. Always looking for the funny in life, Ken has no trouble finding it. After raising a family, surviving a severe car accident, and beating cancer three separate times, he believes that there is humor in all situations. For Ken, every stage is an opportunity to leave it all out there and become a better comedian.
This episode gives listeners perspective on how, as a comedian, being flexible for an audience doesn’t mean changing who you are. There is also a lot of mention of tit pics. Ken is wonderfully hilarious and gracious. This episode is definitely full of fun stories and insight. Enjoy!
The good news is that the Quik & Slow Comedy Show is going stronger than ever. The bad news. The ace of McQuik and MaSlow, Aaron Maslow, contracted Lyme Disease from a tick and is dead. Well, not exactly. He just lives in the exciting world of not Canada and also had a tick on him. What does this mean for the podcast? New host!
In this week’s episode of the show, Nick McQuik guides an entire cast of would-be interviewers through the grueling hell that is asking Nathan Semenyna a question. Nathan, as listeners may know from previous episodes, is an impossible person who derails natural conversation with his innate ability to be himself. Podcast regulars and previous guests will sit in and try commanding the wonkiest interviewer interview there ever was.
And what’s the prize for making it out of the gauntlet? The opportunity to hang out with Nick McQuik more often. Why anyone participated at all is unbelievable.
The attached audio is a mash up of all of the recruits doing their best. Join Nick McQuik, Jamee Nall and Sam Watterworth as Matt Labucki, Clare Belford, Hilton Patton, Neil Rhodes, Scott Belford, Brandi CK LaPerle, JP Fournier and Mark Robert McCue attempt to talk to Nathan Semenyna.
Follow the “annoying story arcs” as each host-to-be uncovers a little piece of Nathan and his comedy past. In addition to having cut his thumb on a mandolin, this cast finds Nathan is drunk, homophobic, angry and then sad as he realizes he has fallen out of favor with his pal, Scott Belford. Nathan talks about his impending suicide and even quits comedy to pursue a summer job in landscaping.

The Quik & Slow Comedy Show is excited for this week’s guest (even if he isn’t), comedian, Dan Clarke! Nick and Aaron along with last week’s guest, Craig Sherburne, and media expert/producer-still-on-LSD, Jamee Nall ask Dan the tough questions that no one ever thought to ask Dan.
Questions like: “Where are you from, Dan?”, “Oh, wow! Why did you leave Port Hope, Ontario?”, and “What is uranium enrichment?”
Dan claims that he has no hobbies and that he could handle the fame and fortune of being a celebrity just as well as the fame and fortune of being a regular person. Nick nearly comes unhinged when he discovers Dan’s general apathy is a lifestyle. “Why?” Nick pleads, “Why would you live that way? Why would anyone want to live that way?!”
“Because I don’t care,” Dan rebukes. Nailed it like a roofer. Dan was raised as a Mormon and works full time as a glazier.
Dan has been performing comedy for two years.
This episode is full of delicious nuggets. Please enjoy!
