Glad to hear reference and reverence for Brian Regan. His album is definitely what got me into standup comedy something fierce back in high school. I've seen him live several times and he's a blast, would love to hear him on pretty much any Earwolf podcast.
edit: oh god, "golden bishop"

P.S. Any Sklar fans in the Philly area better head out and see Randy and Jason at Helium tonight or tomorrow. I was at last night's show, and it was a blast. Helium's a great space, and the Sklars, as well as the two openers, were fantastic!

One digression: there were a couple oblique references to Men at Work's "Down Under," and I got the feeling it's probably a song that Colin Hay is sick to death of. While that is certainly an understandable sentiment, considering it's a 30 year old song that still (for better or for worse, deserved or not) defines the band's career, it's a fucking great song. It's something that puts a smile on my face every time I hear it, and how many people can say that? How many people have created something that has continued to make people happy for decades? Sure, it must be frustrating to have one thing be other people's reference point for a body of work you've spent a lifetime adding to, but it's nothing to shy away from. I'm not saying Colin Hay does shy away from it, as I don't know him like the Sklars do, I'm just talking in generalities, I guess.
