This is our weirdest show yet. We wanted to record a quick podcast before our Toronto trip and thought “Why not do a ‘Best of’ episode and just make up the clips as we go?” And that’s exactly what we did. Thanks for listening and good luck!

This week features brilliant comedy wordsmith Paul Blinov! We kick things off by talking Tony Hawk, ripping on an iPad driven 0-Star Fringe show, and Word of the Week-ing with the word Nobby. Rory Learns about Prince Charles' white leather toilet seat and Andrew Jackson's swearing parrot.
Next, in a very special 'Breaking Paul', Paul is the owner of the world's most badass Booster Juice in Booster Joyce, Illinois. Joined by his juiciest crew, Perry, the swearing parrot, K-10, the talking dog scientist, and his inventory of bone boosters and Gob records, Paul strives to break records of his own. That is until K-10's health takes a turn for the worse!
Finally, in Two Truths & A Lie, Paul bamboozles the HUNKS with his history of working with scaffolding, having a non-fraternal twin brother, and attending a Sex Pistols concert. Can you handle the truth?!?

In this live podcast from the Winnipeg Fringe, we're joined by the riveting RobYn Slade! We quickly realize that RobYn may hold the title for most returned guest on the 'cast, beating out 'The Beast From The Weist' Fraz! Dana Learns some scintillating stuff about Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Tim gives us the goods on the Ferguli Delusion in a really cool version of Word of The Week.
In 'Breaking RobYn', RobYn steps into a mirror world where she is tearing up the MMA circuit. RobYn 'The Bird' Murderer saunters into the ring and shows us her epic finishing move!
Next, in Two Truths & A Lie, RobYn takes us through her day at the Fringe that day. Did she punch someone? Did she eat 3 servings of gelati? Did she witness someone vomit in a show? Tune in to hear the lie!

On this live podcast, we're joined by returning guest, the illustrious Graham Clark! We kick things off by riffing on Ravishing Rick Rude, arguably the world's sexiest wrestler! We all guess how a snake would carry luggage, Dana Learns about Otto, the light killing octopus and Ken Allen, the escapist orangutan, and we ask Graham, “Why be a vegetarian we wonder?”
Next up, it's Breaking Graham! In this hard-hitting segment, Graham puts together a crack team of the best wrestlers throughout history including a caveman, Jack the Ripper, a straight up Bison, and that's just the beginning! You won't want to miss the wrestling match of the millennium with Coach Clark!
Lastly, Graham's Two Truths & A Lie queries whether Graham petted a real killer of a whale, fell asleep during every one of the Lord of the Rings movies (for shame!) OR was a member of the ALF Fan Club!? Can you spot dat lie?
Come see HUNKS at the Edmonton Fringe Festival! See their website for all the details:
It's our first ever live podcast at the Winnipeg Fringe featuring amazing special guest, stand up sensation Graham Clark! First up, we take a short trip to Campbell's Chunky Beach. Then Matt Learns about the 1920s goldfish trend. Then we talk about what we're willing to eat for money. How much would you eat a plane for?
Next, in a very special Breaking Graham, we take an air trip in Graham's magic coat over the city of Blackpool. We smoke a little 'Waiting To Exhale', talk to a very sexy former English teacher, and Graham takes some Alice In Wonderland drugs to become a successful Squirrel King.
In the next segment, it's Two Truth's & A Lie where we try to suss out whether Graham has a tiny tattoo, what he was doing with Tracy Morgan's lucky hairbrush, or whether he is the Allergy Champion of Alberta. Can you spot the lie?
In Episode 66 (one third of the number of the beast) we start things off right by talking about the various ways HUNKS sneeze! Are you a 'Bless you' person? Next Dana Learns about ways to deter war elephants, other ways we've used animals in warfare, and we concatenate all of the meanings of this week's Word of The Week.
Next we tackle a BIG Issue by asking the age old question, if you could Being John Malkovich door inside anyone's head, who would you want to be? Some of our answers will SHOCK you!
Finally, we wrap things up with an email from our favourite Andrew, and talk shop about our many upcoming adventures!
Kick flip your senses into overdriving and set your spy porpoises to stun with this brand new episode of the HUNKS Comedy Podcast!
Ify Chiwetelu is a our guest for this live podcast recorded at Wee Johnny's. Our modest crowd was an absolute delight. We got off to a terrible start with Tim couldn't even attempt to say Ify's last name. But, as she said to Dana, "you gotta pick your battles." We start with some fun riffing and introductions, talk about giggle and dancing fits, home births, Winnipeg secrets and table linen.
In our 'Choose Your Own Adventure' section Ify gets magically transported from the Winnipeg airport to Winnipeg's own 'The Forks' where she meets R.L. Stine, eats a bunch of pancakes and sleeps through an unimaginable adventure. It ends with Ify making sweet, sweet love to R.L. Stine in the White House while president Pancakes strengthens diplomatic ties.
In our Two Truths and a Lie game the HUNKS crew have to determine whether Ify had braces for 7 years, is Muslim or has never seen Star Wars is a lie. It spins into some pretty heavy handed discussions about Star Wars and brief religion talks.
Now or Never airs on CBC Radio One's every Thursday at 2PM and Saturdays at 3PM. Also, look out for Season 2 of Baroness Von Sketch Show to see some of Ify's comedy writing.
It's episode 53, and we kick things off by travelling through time to an era where Transpontine was an actual word people used, dolphins were still creeps (because they've always been creeps), and Tim nostalgically waxes about the good ol' days of prank phone calls.
Here's the picture of former Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz kicking a kid in the head.
Then, we get ready to rumble in the jungle as Rory learns us some movie trivia about Predator and the incomparable JVDM!
We close with some Sob Stories from our very own Dana Smith as she challenges us to guess the reason for the last time she cried. It's a real nailbiter! Here's the scene from 'Enchanted' that made Dana cry:
Put your dog in his favourite Predator costume, stick a festive stick on your mouth, and cage your hawks, cause the HUNKS is a-comin'! And that right soon!!!
We're off to the Toronto Sketch Festival for shows on Saturday, March 4th and Sunday, March 5th.

H.U.N.K.S. Podcast turns 40! In this special live episode at Wee Johnny's Irish Pub, things kick off quick as we hash out some of our dad's goals. Then Tim Learns a little about lighthouses in a lack luster fashion, we get another sneak peak into the mind of Tim Gray, and we riff on the left-handedness of polar bears. Then, in Word of The Week, we completely ignore the meaning of Ukase!
Next, we quickly rail on "The Parade of Lies"; aka "The Santa Day Parade"; before getting real hands-on with our next segment Dana Explains Puppet Master. Puppet Master is an eye-boner of a groaner 90's B-movie that makes almost no sense save for the epic puppet murders. Dana loves hearing about 90's stop motion animation but hates every other aspect of this straight to video cinematic disaster.
In our final segment, we go back to the realm of Quinn Quest and take up the epic journey with Rory Fallis aka Roarer Felix, a half-dragon techno druid. It's Roarer's turn to face a horrendous fantasy monster called a beholder, and to solve some riddles to save his own skin. Will he best the foul beast and win the day? Find out in this fantasy tale featuring dire boars, rabid koalas, and a real life tale of Quinn throwing some poor soul through a glass coffee table! By accident of course!!! (Maybe, sort of...)
Come blow out some candles, and smash cake in each other's faces with this 40th episode extravaganza! This episode also features a live commercial by Rumors very own stand-up sensation Ryan Ash!

This week marks our 38th episode and we get real deep with our special guest Toby Hughes! Toby is a real pillar of pillars in Winnipeg and a member of OUTSIDE JOKE, a remarkable local improv group who perform live, improvised musicals!
In this episode, Dana gives us all the latest on the beautiful life of the perfect weirdo that is Tom Cruise. We learn the word 'mollify' and wax on what it would be like to jump across the world, observing whales and landing horribly. Then we break Toby real good by getting into a hot debate about a world where whales and humans miraculously switched places, a whale-based economy, and a whale-based space race. Finally, Toby hits us with some hard truths (and one lie), about loosing his lunch in the unlikeliest of instances. It's a whale of a 'cast that truly proves, 'In space, no one can hear you groove!'

The saga of audio issues continues! Dana's microphone cut out a few times throughout this episode. Since this episode was recorded we have completely revamped our recording process and we're trying out some new equipment, so please bare with us (RAWR!). The next few episodes should be better. For comedic effect, we have put the 'Technical Difficulties' music in when her microphone cuts out.
Episode 034 of the HUNKS Podcast find's the gang dipped deep in thick riffs. Could we live in a world where 'Cheese Gas' wasn't vilified? What you didn't hear around the 4:30 mark was Dana saying Tim's peen was out of his pants. We're so thankful for all of our lovely listeners who put up with Tim's talkin' peen interrupting people.
True story: Bruges, Belgium is home to roads that are some the biggest weiner's in the world. Surf the beer tunnels in Belgium with H.U.N.K.S. as Tim shares stories of Beer and Purple Carrots. Congratulations to all of those fancy pants cities with toilets in their basement. This episode also features our first installment of Talkin' Squat: Squat Talk.
New segment alert! New segment alert! Quinn Greene guides us on a new game he has created for the podcast called "Quinn Quest". Quinn guides us on a fantastical journey through a nerd world of his own creation. He's loaded it up with trivia, stories, and long-winded introductions (that we all LOVE).
Second new segment alert! Bare with us (RAWR!) as we work our way through the first letter we write to our government. We are certainly intending on writing more letters and I promise you we'll get better at writing them.
This is our 33rd episode! And it was released exactly 7 days since Quinn Greene's 33rd birthday.
It's a very special episode because we a very special guest - Kane Greene! Quinn and Kane Greene are brothers who are struggle with mental illness. Numan Films followed the two brothers and their family around for over a year filming the upcoming documentary 'Being Greene'.
In addition to discussions about mental illness, we also talk about Tim Gray carrying around a bag of hair that's from his ex girlfriends and is still growing. So, we pretty much covered all of the bases.
While you listen to this week's episode you might notice a whole new set of audio issues! Tim's microphone cut out a couple times, but I don't believe anything important was missed. If you enjoyed this episode and wanted to talk about it (or anything else) please email us. We'd love to chat about mental illness. OR bags of human hair.
