Happy Heatwave everyone!  New York City is so adorable in the summer time.  Our first guest in comedian Eugene Mirman.  Old friends, Shonali and Eugene, share their road stories from their rock n' roll comedy tour a decade ago.  Eugene explains how a polka dotted scarf and moustache can cause trouble.  Check out Eugene's new Netflix Special.  Our second guest is artist Karmimadeebora "Mima" McMillan.  Mima is a Taurus like Shonali.  She recently moved to NYC from NC via Boston.  Mima's personality is just like her art, colorful, exuberant and bright!  We talk Punky Brewster and the Black Panther coloring book. Mima is currently street artist Swoon's business manager.  You can check out Mima's art which is currently on display at Fringe Salon.  Our final guest is comedian Mike Denny.  Mike just got off of Tinder because it didn't feel right.  Christian asks about Mike's tattoo.  Mike spent his high school years exclusively on a skateboard.  Christian knows a little skateboard lingo and that's about it. Do you know the 5 P's.  Mike does.  Mike hosts a the Monday night hit comedy show Broken Comedy, at Bar Matchless along with perfect attendance Nimesh Patel (former WDEK guest) and Michael Che.  See you there!

Ep. 33:  Dave Hill, Brooke Van Poppelen and Ambrosia Parsley - June 23, 2015

Episode 33 of WDEK was taped on a hot and muggy day at HiFi in the East Village. Shonali has just returned to NYC from the even hotter and muggier city of Nashville, TN.  She was irritable earlier in the day and now Christian is late to the show.  Shonali makes friends in bathrooms and has tips for those who snore while awake.  Comedian/rock star Dave Hill is our first special guest.  Dave Hill explains what shredding is.  He knows how to do it well.  Shonali and Dave talk about John Mayer for entirely too long.  Dave, here's the video Shonali was referring to with Marty Balin spooning his guitar in jail.  Shonali and Dave talk bidets, the new wave that is sweeping America.  Dave has a new comedy album out now called Let Me Turn You On. Buy it now on iTunes or Amazon.  Just in time for the second guest, co-host Christian Felix joins the show.  Special guest comedian, writer and TV host of Hack My Life, Brooke Van Poppelen joins us on stage in gorgeous colors that pop.  She introduces us to the concept of Wikifeet and explains what a #LifeHack is. We talk bitchy band groupies, comedy nerds and women who would bang Craig Ferguson.  Guess who? Late Night TV hosts are so "psyched!"  We leave it at that.  Our last guest is musician Ambrosia Parsley who wears a #PinkJumpsuit on the night of her birthday.  Ambrosia has a new album out called Weeping Cherry.  Ambrosia was paid to sing in Russia for one night by The Client along with Kesha and Amy Winehouse.  Ambrosia comes to us with a story about 9 dildos and bed bugs.  Got your attention right? Ambrosia has an beautiful voice and she shares two songs accompanied by a WDEK former guest, Chris Maxwell.  She sings "Make Me Laugh" and "Rubble."  Special thanks to soundman Stephen Kurpis, photographer Daria Huxley, and bartender Tracie Matthews.
