I got the chance to catch up on Zoom with the charming and talented Sydnee Washington ahead of her appearances at the Toronto Just for Laughs Festival.
You can catch Syndee's solo show "How to Start a Fire" at JFL Toronto every night at Comedy Bar from September 27-30.
Summers in Toronto are magical, and the Just for Laughs comedy festival is a perfect way to end one with a bang. It's 10 days of your favourite entertainers, the weather is right, and last call stretches 'til the wee hours.
As someone in the funny business, I often struggle between the urge to see and be seen, and the pleasure of my couch + a cozy list of grievances.
The first time I saw Al Val perform, she was getting roasted by a vicious panel of her peers at one of Todd Van Allen's "Write 'em Up" shows at Comedy Bar; she was being torn apart by the zippers on her pants.
The order up crew chat with author of Mothers and Other Strangers Gina Sorell about the nature of pizza, it's literary value and the process of writing a book.
Dan, Layney and Matt sit with Ashley Cooper writer for Gotham Knights and the upcoming Iron Man video game to discuss Nightwing. We get into the history of the character, its origins and his growth from boy wonder into young adult wonder.
We let the Court of Owls build a little birdhouse in our souls as Layney brings us through The Court of Owls New 52 reboot on this episode of Detecting The Marvelous.
The Order Up crew sit with Cari's friend an amazing film actor Scott Schwartz seen sticking his tongue to a metal pole in A Christmas Story, palling around with Richard Pryor in The Toy and most recently tending bar in A Christmas Story Christmas. We hear about his feelings on pizza and his incredible career.
Dan and Layney follow Matt and the X-Men on an X-cellent adventure to space and beyond. This episode we chat about 1991's X-Men reboot. The episode has angst, it has X-Men X-Position, and pouches... so many pouches.
*Editors note: Matt was wrong; Proteus is not Charles' love child.
The Order Up team sit down with celebrity chef and awesome guy Chef Joe Gatto to get to the bottom of the pizza debate.
Dan, Layney, and Matt talk about the first four issues of Marvel's First Family, the interesting history of its creators, and how Ben Grimm would likely be in trouble with HR.
