91: The Last Polka (1985) with Ajay Fry and Paul Stachniak

Cam's been sent to the prairies for work, so Becky has invited former guest Paul Stachinak to bring on his old buddy, host and personality Ajay Fry to come hang out and talk about 1985's SCTV TV Movie The Last Polka

If you're familiar with Ajay Fry's work, you'll know he's a pretty funny guy, and we put his and Paul's comedic know-how to work, dissecting this little piece of Canadiana. We talk the pacing of modern comedies, how and when riffing is effective and what makes something an effective parody or satire. The Last Polka is available for viewing on Youtube.

This week's end credit music is Cabbage Rolls and Coffee, performed by the Shmenge Brothers themselves.
