45: FUBAR (2002) with Peter Carlone
This week, Canadian Comedy Award Winner Peter Carlone joins Becky and a back from tour Cam! What would be a better choice for this Calgary-born sketch-comedy boy than the 2002 cult classic “Fubar”! We talk developing sketch and improv characters for long form projects, the mean streets of Calgary, budget allocation for destroying property, and early hipster mocking. Add to that a healthy chat about the inner workings of the Peter and Chris team, and you’re in for a good time. Check out Fubar on iTunes and turn up the good on your week.
