About this Episode

Listen to the sketch on YouTube here!:

Welcome to the first episode of Sketch Comedy Podcast Show! Well, not the first episode, but the first episode of the revamped Sketch Comedy Podcast Show.

Catch the sketch alone on YouTube here:


So what changed? Well, we found out that people like to hear the discussions that lead to the sketches, so we decided that should be part of the show. Then, we decided that instead of doing four sketches in a week, we went with one a week. Lastly, it felt like it was time to start inviting other people to be on the show finally, so we decided to do that.

Then, my partner on the podcast, Alisha, decided it was time to take a hiatus. It was a bit of a crisis, because I didn’t know what to do… suddenly I was forced to make a decision: Do I carry on and talk into a microphone on my own or do I wrap up the show and be done with it?

Then, I realized that the show could exist, but it couldn’t be the same. It never really will be, and I really love the show Sketch Comedy Podcast Show was, but to be completely honest, I love this new version so much more.

The reason? It’s about finding people, people who are not what you would normally expect to hear on a comedy podcast like scientists, lawyers, other podcasters, everyday people doing extraordinary things, and making them incredibly vulnerable by asking them to do something that terrifies most people: being funny. But somehow, they do it and it is fucking amazing.

So join me in applauding the people who decided to take the plunge and do so gracefully and, more often than not, hilariously. As you listen, if you feel like you could do this and you are also an interesting person, please let me know! There is a spot on the website (sketchcomedypodcastshow@gmail.com) at the top that states “Be A Guest” (https://form.jotform.us/71530480274149) Click on it, fill out the form, and let’s start talking!

This first episode, and there are a lot this season that continue to do so, stars the lovely, talented, and one of my best friends Alisha Holland. You will understand why she was so integral for the genesis of the show as you listen to this first episode and you will no doubt look forward to hearing her every time she is on the podcast.

And now, enjoy episode 1 “One Night Stand”

Alisha evidently really likes romance novels. Stuart no longer trust secondhand desks at work. Don't allow Alisha to housesit for you #OnOrOff. Alicia is the worst/best at Facebook. Spiders out your pee-hole or scorpions out your butt? Either way: #SpiderNudes #SpiderNudes! #ArachnoPussyPhobia! 911 dispatch sounds like a great way to find the next place to score. May the 4th might be the dumbest day for the dumbest jokes. Then, they finally record a sketch.

We don’t want to drudge up any bad feelings or memories, but we’ve all had that night. You know, the night that you meet that great person at the bar and then you go and have a great time with that person, and then NEVER TALK TO THEM AGAIN? Actually, that doesn’t sound so bad, but sometimes the feelings are the hardest thing to get over… and the required testing afterwards. This week’s sketch explores those feelings afterwards and tries to find the answers.
