Succotash, The Comedy Soundcast Soundcast


Succotash, the Comedy Soundcast Soundcast, was launched in 2011 with the idea of promoting comedy soundcasts in what was then a marketplace still trying to find its way. By featuring short clips of shows being produced by funny folks both known and unknown, we like to feel that we maybe had a little tiny, eeny weeny, itsy bitsy bit to do with helping to ignite the torch of soundcasts across the globe! (But then we've always had a rather high opinion of ourselves...)

Original show host and executive producer Marc Hershon, along with booth announcer Bill Heywatt, engineer/producer Joe Paulino, associate producer Tyson Saner, musical director Scott Carvey, and booth assistant Kenny Durgis have kept the flame alive o'er these many years. In 2018, Hershon abandoned the host chair and anointed Saner to the position, with nary a notice from the legions of listeners. Typical.

Fight The Conspiracy Keeping You From Seeing This Movie Premiere!

May 13, 2011

Truth_poster THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE follows actor-artist-inventor-improv comic Dean Haglund (best know as one of the computer-hacking Lone Gunmen from "The X-Files" and their own spin-off series) as he travels the world, hoping to learn what it means to search for the truth in a world where conspiracies, or conspiracy theories are everywhere.

(IS there a conspiracy to keep people from going to the U.S. premiere on Saturday, May 21st, at the Retro Dome in San Jose? If this is the first you're hearing about the movie, maybe so...)

A true epic that is equal parts comedy, consciousness and conspiracy, the film had its World Premiere on 30 April at the British Film Institute in London.

"This is one of those films that you will have to watch more than once. It's a timeless piece of work and destined to become a legend." - John Bryan, SlideTV

"All in all, THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE is a call to all eager for more knowledge and new insights: They should dare to think beyond current boundaries and not let anyone limit their power of imagination. It is not THE truth that is out there, but rather several truths that wait to be discovered." - Anastasia Hansen, The Junction (Germany).

"THE TRUTH JUST MIGHT BE IN HERE - Examines the world of conspiracy theories in a refreshing and novel way." - Marc Hershon, The Huffington Post (Hey, that's ME!!!)

On Saturday 21 May, at The Retro Dome in San Jose, California, we will be having the US Premiere of the film. The screening will be followed by a brief intermission, and then Dean Haglund and director Phil Leirness will take the stage to do a live installment of their weekly podcast show, Chillpak Hollywood Hour. They will answer questions from the audience and share stories of our adventures on the road.

Because Dean, Phil and producer Lyle Skosey are completely self-distributing the film, they are relying on the help of kindred spirits to help get the TRUTH out there.

If there is anyone you know in, or near, the San Francisco Bay Area, who might enjoy what I expect to be a really fun night, I'd greatly appreciate you helping the guys spread the word.

Tickets can and should be obtained in advance exclusively through Everbrite.
