Today’s guest… well he straight up makes me laugh. I’m a huge fan of the man – and I’m not alone! In fact if you’ve seen the man’s CHARMAGEDON stand up show you know – he’s non stop funny. Indeed he’s been cracking them up since he was just a little boy. He began his professional career as a teenager in Chicago as a part of the famous Second City Troupe and was declared “Funniest Teenager In Chicago” by the Chicago Sun Times.
I connected with wonderful comedian and actor Hal Sparks on the phone over the course of a couple of calls last week to talk about everything including his upcoming shows at Ha!ifax ComedyFest. I loved his run on E’s Talk Soup… as I confess during our chat so we talk about that as well as his many acting roles over the year’s – from his dramatic turn to the mega award winning and groundbreaking Queer As Folk, to his time as a Disney Dad on Lab Rats, to his big screen turns in films like DUDE WHERE MY CAR?. Plus we talk rock and his band ZERO 1, and his radio show (and after show), and charity work, and so much more! We even squeeze in fun FIRST THINGS FIRST and play an enlightening round of INsights IN 10. So with all that ahead – I say let’s get to it here’s my conversation with the one and only Hal Sparks!
