Episode 43 - Krissie Shelley



On this new episode of On the Mic I talked with comedian and podcaster, Krissie Shelley!

I first met Krissie at an open mic a little over a year ago, and we would see each other at WiseGuys Comedy from time to time, but we had never actually talked with each other until now.

It was great to talk with Krissie and learn about how she started in comedy, where she finds her comedy inspiration, trying to find her own identity, intentionally getting kicked out of BYU-Idaho, moving to Utah, her podcast The Totally Real Podcast That Is Real and so much more!

Is Bill Murray putting the jumpsuit back on in the Ghostbusters reboot?

The Ghostbuster rumor mills are swirling today with the news that Bill Murray will be returning in the Ghostbusters reboot.

When the Ghostbuster reboot rumors initially started a few years back, Bill Murray wanted nothing to do with the films, but it looks like he finally caved! 

We still don't know what kind of role Bill Murray will have, but whatever it is we can't wait to see it! One thing we do know, is that he WILL NOT be playing the role of his beloved character Peter Venkmen as the reboot is not a sequel to the previous two films. Whatever the role is that he ends up playing, Ghostbuster fans around the world can rejoice! Welcome back to the Ghostbusters universe, Bill Murray!

Thank You, Jon Stewart!

I've never missed an episode of The Daily Show since I first discovered it in 2003. It's been a staple of my comedy viewing for almost 13 years. It seems strange to think that after tonight's episode, Jon Stewart will leave us with his final moment of zen and retire from The Daily Show. Jon Stewart will forever remain a major influence to my comedy writing and a big part of why I chose to start studying comedy writing and eventually enroll with Second City last December. When I co-wrote the My House on The Moon book in 2013, Jon Stewart's book Naked Pictures of Famous People was a huge influence to my writing and insight for the book. Now with all of Jon's free time maybe we can get a fourth book out of him!

Without rambling on too much longer and making this sound more like a eulogy for Jon Stewart than it should, I really just want to say Thank You. Thank You, Jon Stewart for delivering top notch comedy for over 17 years and being an inspiration not just to me, but to millions of comedy fans around the world. I can't wait to see what's next for you and look forward to your next endeavor. Thank You, Jon Stewart. And Best Wishes.
