#10 Can You Be Friends With an Ex? ft. Nikki Fit#9 Blake Pavey's Make-A-Wish#8 Nothing Is Off-Limits for Isaac Butterfield
Today's guest is the beard-bearing, Isaac Butterfield.Isaac is an Aussie comedian who has no trouble selling out shows when he tours. A large reason for this is because he isn't afraid of speaking his mind, which sometimes means being controversial.As I interview more and more comedians, I'm noticing a trend in the way that they see the world of comedy. First and foremost, they want to make people laugh BUT they also possess an inner child curiously wherein if they have a crazy idea for a joke, regardless of whether it is politically correct or offensive, they have to make that joke on stage. They just have to see what happens when they say what they are thinking. The thing is, if the crowd laughs, they have to make that joke again. When comedians get 'cancelled', you have to understand that the jokes they are telling on stage at their filmed and planned comedy special is likely the 100th time (if not more) that they have told that particular joke to an audience. It only stays in the show if it gets the laugh and to a comedian such as Isaac Butterfield, it seems like nothing is off-limits. Laughter is king.This is the sport of stand-up comedy. Pair that with the sport that is social media and Isaac Butterfield is someone who objectively plays the game very well.I took Isaac from a stand-up gig to his dinner plans for the evening and we got into some fantastic and even deep conversation. Enjoy!A special Thank-Q to Isaac for joining me today!

#7 The Problem With Being Politically Correct ft. Michael Shafar#6 The Greatest Job in the World ft. Rachel-Lee Anderson#5 She Broke Up With Me, So I Became Successful ft. Joe White#4 Did Steph Leave the Key on Purpose? ft. Steph Toussat#3 Lewis Spears Wants You to Cancel Him#2 Disappointment vs Regret with Angry Dad (Mark Orval)
Today’s guest is the legendary Angry Dad (aka Mark Orval). He got this nickname from a series of viral prank videos that his kids have uploaded online. Mark's reactions to these cheeky pranks are often…well...angry!Mark's story is super interesting. He was an up and coming Aussie rules football star who played 7 games for Collingwood until an extremely unfortunate injury ended his career abruptly and when his sporting dreams were shattered, it catapulted him into 25+ years of depression. By the end of this podcast you’re going to be able to appreciate that Mark is not only a stand up bloke with a great sense of humour but he also has a massive heart and life experience that we can all learn from. I love his explanation on the difference between disappointment and regret.Two weeks prior to recording this, Mark had undergone surgery to remove an aggressive form of prostate cancer. He told me that he had been crying every day trying to come to terms with it all and it was very apparent to me that as soon as Mark got into my car, although he’s a big strong bloke, everything had happened so quickly and he was still very much processing it all. He had a lot to get off his chest. I felt honoured that Mark was comfortable opening up to me while I took him to and from one of his first checkups after surgery. Special Thank-Q to Angry Dad for being a part of this!
