Episode 29 – Dave Holmes on National Lampoon’s “That’s Not Funny, That’s Sick”

National Lampoon was, in its heyday, on the forefront of sketch comedy.  This album proves it, and for many it was the first time hearing some of these up-and-coming comedians who are now household names – Bill Murray, Christopher Guest, Richard Belzer, Laraine Newman – and the list goes on.

And the man who brings the album to our collective attention this week is one Mr. Dave Holmes.  Host of “A Drink With Dave,” and “How Many People Does it Take” on H2, to name just two of his many projects, Dave tells us how this shaped his idea of comedy, and we’re all the better for it in the end.  Take a listen.
