Reefer Madness with Patrick Aiken

Musicals Taught Me Everything I Know

This week we chat with Patrick Aiken about which of life's truths can be learned from the propaganda-parody musical - Reefer Madness!"Viewed through eyes blurred by no substance stronger than cough syrup, the film is still mildly diverting, with its censorious, bespectacled narrator and its scenes showing wholesome high-school students transformed into monsters by a single puff. It even has a weird, sort of Expressionist power in its mad, jerky party scenes. But its humor, especially for head-movie fans, has always been in its somber, tabloid-style hyperbole."https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reefer_Madness_(musical)https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Murphy_(screenwriter)https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reefer_Madness_(2005_film)https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reefer_Madnesshttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morality_talehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_J._GasnierLike us on Facebook!

Lemon Pepper with Patrick Aiken

Wings with Friends

Patrick Aiken is a wonderfully funny and terribly handsome comedian from Phoenix. We social distanced over lemon pepper wings from Wingstop and talked about Patrick’s passions, including his friends, gay flag football league, and his amazing show at Los Diablos in Phoenix. We debate whether it’s better to be hot or funny while I outline Patrick’s perfect life and the pandemic single’s scene. Follow Patrick Aiken at @laughmissle

SEASON 2 Finale: Patrick Aiken

Life Coaching Comedians

In this session we talk about how to find Patrick's ideal partner and discover that he might be an alcoholic and is spiritually dead inside. Lexis Sharde attempts to help him.  Season 3 coming in spring 2020! Patrick doesn't eat, he relies solely on Grapefruit White Claw for his daily calorie intake. Quite frankly, it must be enough cause this perfect bitch is an all-star in the Phoenix Gay Flag Football League. He might be a bit a of jock but he is also quite the chess player. Mr. Aiken was a finalist in the All Star Comedy Throw Down at Sazerac. He hosts a very popular show called "Hell of Laugh" at Los Diablos in Phoenix every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month. He was also a featured comedian at PHX Pride 2019. When he's not doing comedy he's operating the globe and managing logistics...or something like that.   Created & Edited By: @LexisSharde  Music By: Mitch Weary Jr. Aka M-Status @YoungStats  www.lifecoachingcomedians.com --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/lifecoachingcomedians/message

Matilda with Jessica Kate Ryan and Patrick Aiken

Musicals Taught Me Everything I Know

This week we chat with Jessica Kate Ryan and Patrick Aiken about which of life's truths can be gleaned from Tim Minchin’s SMASH HIT musical - Matilda!"I suspect it will delight audiences for years to come ... [Kelly's] script actually improves and deepens Dahl's original ... [Minchin's] smashing score ... combines take-home melodies with delicious lyrical wit in songs that consistently develop both the plot and our understanding of the characters. There is an exuberant sense here of two writers who have clicked together ... [Matilda] so wittily excoriates the cruelty and crassness of our age ... Warchus’s thrilling, warm-hearted production, exuberantly designed by Rob Howell and with pin-sharp choreography by Peter Darling, constantly combines comedy with a sense of wonder. The children [and the adult performances are 'hilarious' (Bailey), 'memorable' (Walker and Kaye) and 'touchingly sweet' (Ward)] ... But the star turn is Bertie Carvel". - Charles Spencer- FURTHER READING -Wiki - Musical, Novel, Roald Dahl, Tim Minchin, Royal Shakespeare CompanyIMDbiTunes, SpotifyLike us on Facebook!
