Steve doesn't want to be funny on this podcast and Harry, his dummy, reminds him of the contract he signed at the comedy convention. If Steve refuses to tell jokes than he must be defrocked or they'll be dire consequences. Dragging out the Comedy Convention Handbook, Harry proceeds to do just that. No more propellor beanie, no more whoopee cushion, he rips off his epaulets and of course the big nose and mustache. Then things get really crazy.
And Steve's guests are Washboard Jungle. Very, very funny guys playing Ukulele Daily with delightful and funny back up singing.

Hester Mundis was the chief writer for Joan Rivers for years as well as warming up the television audience before Joan's show. She regales us with stories about those times. Also, Harry has become a plant therapist, which is as ridiculous as it sounds. The great fiddle and bass player Jay Ungar and Molly Mason are also guests. They sing Jay's original "Chicken in a Pot"

His inimitable voice and guitar playing is immediately recognizable. Barry has written other great songs, just from the titles you can tell how funny he is. "I wanna be a dog", "My brother threw up on my stuffed toy bunny", "I've got a dog and my dog's name is cat". Y Today he's playing a love song he wrote about his wife but with a twist. I love your eyes. But he loves a lot of other stuff about her too.
Steve's also featuring a traditional song from an album called "Silly Songs about Silly people" that was distributed nationally with the Troll National book club called "The Bold Fisherman" He recorded it with Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, two great performers in their own right.

Camille West, Steve's guest, is often compared to Christine Lavin. She's funny. Very funny. The song featured, that Camille wrote, is "The Nervous Wreck of the Edna Fitzgerald". As she puts it, it's a Yuppie seachanty.
And the Free Harry movement has started! Seems some folks are not happy with how Steve treats his dummy and are mounting a protest. Despite Steve own protestations he can't convince people that Harry is just...well a dummy.
Also featured is Steve's original "Cupcake Song". It's basically a list of the 52 ingredients Steve once found on the label of some cupcakes he was buying at the supermarket. It's a true story. I dare you to recognize five of them. For instance, what's carboxy methyl cellulose?

Peter Davis is Steve's guest. Peter has played in the house band of Prairie Home Companion and has mastered several musical instruments. His rendition of "Five Guys Named Moe" is exquisite. Harry helps with the scat singing.

And...Steve plays "Old Dan Tucker" from his album "Silly Songs about Silly People" with Jay Ungar and Molly Mason. You may remember Jay because he wrote the theme to Ken Burns' "The Civil War" and was nominated for a Grammy because of it.
