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.

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.

l-r: Larry Brown, Dana Carvey, Mark Pitta & Marc Hershon

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.
