Yes, it's me - Marc Hershon - your host and flotation device for Epi154 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. This is a somewhat special (and impromptu) episode of Succotash Chats, featuring a trio of special guest comedians: Dana Carvey, Mark Pitta, and Larry "Bubbles" Brown.
Dana was back up in Northern California the past week or so to do some corporate gigs (he and his family have been living mostly down in Los Angeles the past couple of years), and we thought it would be fun to get together, along with old friends Mark and Larry to just shoot the comedy bull for an hour.
We cover a variety of topics during this chat, ranging from each guys' oldest "solid" joke and Dana playing answering machine messages that he left for someone in the voices of Jeff Bridges and Michael Caine, to favorite movies and remembering some of the old club days back in the comedy book of the 1980s.
This has got to be one of the least produced episodes that I've done with guests. I basically just hit "Play", toss in our opening and closing with announcer Bill Heywatt, a commercial for Summer Stock Slacks from our sponsor Hendersons' Pants, and that's it. No Burst o' Durst segment this time around (Will Durst had technical difficulties while vacationing in Greece this week), no Tweetsack. Just some jibber jabber which is occasionally funny, often curious and occasionally not very funny at all.
It's basically a conversation.
If you like what you're hearing with our soundcast, please remember to get up to iTunes to rate and review us - 5 stars would be great (if you like us less than that, don't bother, right?) And you can help us out financially now thorugh our new Patreon account, at https://www.patreon.com/succotash
You can catch us on iTunes, the Laughable app, Stitcher, SoundCloud, iHeartRadio and every YouTube. So tell your friends and thanks for passing the Succotash!

Yes, it’s me. Marc Hershon. Your host and corporeal being for Epi153 of Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast. And this is another installment of Succotash Clips, where we feature clips of comedy soundcasts from all over the place.
As far as this epi goes, we’ve got clips coming up in this installment from Chillpak Hollywood Hour, Crazytown, The David Feldman Show, Harmontown, The Jackie & Laurie Show, Nerd Poker, Nerds with Words, PTO Unlimited, and Studio 60 Sessions. In addition, we also have a double dose of our Burst O’ Durst segment, featuring political comedian and social commentator Will Durst. And this episode is brought to you by Henderson’s Pants CoverALLs.
Big thanks our Associate Producer Tyson Saner for harvesting half of the shows you’re going to hear on this episode – he does a great job finding new shows for this show and he also has his own soundcast, The Anti Social Show, along with Hunter Block, who is also a friend of this show. They just got their show up on iTunes so check ‘em out there, or on SoundCloud.
Speaking of iTunes, if you’d like to be a friend of this show as well and have not yet rated and reviewed Succotash on iTunes, please do so. It doesn’t cost you a cent and it really helps our visibility in Soundcastland.
For that matter if you listen to us on the Laughable app, or Stitcher, or SoundCloud, it would be great if you’d rate us using whatever system they’ve got going on. Same goes for YouTube and iHeart Radio, two more fab spots to hear our spew.
WELCOME US TO PATREON
I just popped the top on our new Succotash Patreon account. That’s right, we're now part of the Patreon soundcast life support system. I’m not quite sure what I’m doing with it yet, so I think the only option currently available is for you to kick us $1 a month, for which we will thank you every show in our Calvalcade of Gratitude. And I also think there’s a thing that’s live that if we get 250 followers on Patreon, I will commit to churing out an episode each and every week on a regular release day. So check out that page at https://www.patreon.com/succotash
The David Feldman Show
Chillpak Hollywood Hour
The Jackie & Laurie Show
Nerds With Words
The Studio 60 Sessions
If you're a comedy soundcaster and would like us to feature your show on our show, you can get us a 3-5 minute MP3 clip (no promos, please!) by uploading it directly to me via our direct upload link, at http://hightail.com/u/Succotash. And please tell us a little about you and the show itself, including the homesite, distribution points, etc.
Our next epi will likely be an installment of Succotash Chats, with a surprise guest who's actually making his fourth appearance on the show!
Until next time, thanks for passing the Succotash!
