Dave Foley and Radiolab joining forces can only be a very good thing. 

Dave Foley, of Kids in the Hall fame, joins us in Seattle!



We’re so excited to team up with Dave Foley for our live shows in Seattle on 8/24 and 8/25. We’re freaking out a little bit because we adored Kids in the Hall and we’re over the moon now that Dave will bring his legendary comedic chops, and his fascinatingly offbeat sense of humor, to bear on the ideas of lightness and darkness, and seeing and not seeing, for our live show In the Dark.




Dave will join Jad and Robert on stage with the shape-shiftingly dazzling dance troupe Pilobolus, and the irresistibly rocking singer-songwriter Thao Nguyen. You don’t want to miss it. In the Dark is the most ambitious live show we’ve ever done, and it’s chock-full of science, suspense, comedy, dance, and rock and roll.
Join us as we explore the evolution of the eye and the miracle of sight, listen in on a fiercely personal debate between two blind men, and relive the heart-pounding true story of one astronaut’s unforgettable spacewalk.
Tickets are on sale now for 8/24 and 8/25 at the Paramount Theatre.

Announcing my very first one-man show!On July 17, fab columnist  and former Kids in the Hall writer Paul Bellini presents his one-man  show, Flatus Maximus, at the Flying Beaver Pubaret.A mix of  songs and stories, Bellini uses his ten years as a columnist as the  basis of his adventures, culminating in some of his subjects returning  to be interviewed live. Throughout, Bellini talks about having a  fan tattoo his likeness on his arm, throwing a Genie party, meeting  B-movie starlets, wearing a white towel, demonstrating the use of a  litter box, getting fired, making a pen pal from Russia, going to a  lesbian baby shower, squeezing Enza’s tits, grilling Tab Hunter,  learning how to hold a gun from a Canadian soldier, and flirting with a  female stripper. The highlight of the show might be the first public  airing of the Elaine Stritch interview from 2003, which Bellini  describes as “the most nightmarish interview I ever did”.  A  vertitable Torpedo of Truth, Flatus Maximus brims with laughs, gossip,  useful take-away information, lots of biographical tidbits, and best of  all is entirely eco-friendly. Imagine if Bruce Villanch and Michael  Musto had a love child, and that child had the misfortune of living in  Toronto, then you have Paul Bellini’s Flatus Maximus. Which means  “greatest fart”, by the way. Paul Bellini’s Flatus MaximusSunday, July 17, 2011 at 6:00 PMThe Flying Beaver Pubaret488 Parliament Street, Toronto$10.00
