Paul F. Tompkins compliments you with a sincere “good job” since you made it to this place called SPONTANEANATION! This week, Paul’s special guest is comedian, actor, writer Bob Kerr of This Hour Has 22 Minutes! They chat about Bob’s dream career of being a musician, why revisiting Thunderbirds as an adult is not a good idea, and being terrified of driving in Los Angeles. Paul is then joined by Shulie Cowen, Matt Gourley, and Jean Villepique to improvise a story set in a Clown Cemetery. And as always, Eban Schletter (only the best) scores it all on piano!
