Mike is renown for his sharp wit and ability to engage in unscripted banter with his audience. This was recorded in 2015, while Mike was on-air at CFRB NewsTalk 1010. He tells the story of how Program Director Mike Bendixen hired him.

Mike still does stand-up comedy, mostly for private functions.

I was a producer on Mike’s late night talk show. Mike and I spend some time reminiscing about the glory days of Canadian television in the 1990s.

Mike also shares the story of how, after his TV show was canceled, he avoided going out in public for 3 years and the lack of opportunities for comics on Canadian TV these days.

When Mike’s father passed away I attended the funeral. I’ve never laughed & cried so much, anywhere. Mike opens up about how he dealt with the heartbreaking death of his father.

Rick Miller interview, podcast, Boom, Machomer,, twenty thousand leagues under teh sea Rick Miller is an actor, voice actor, comedian and playwright. Rick has performed in five languages on five continents and Entertainment Weekly has called him “one of the 100 most creative people alive today”.

Rick and I met at a pastry shop around the corner from his home in Toronto.

We talk about his path from studying architecture to writing, directing and performing in theatrical productions around the world.

Recently Rick appeared in the critically acclaimed “Venus in Fur,” at The Canadian Stage and the Centaur Theatre, but it was the first time in ages that he had to audition for part, and he talks about overcoming his struggle to become the play’s bloodthirsty tyrant.
