Book Description

March 2000 Dead Dog Cafe Comedy Hour (Book 2)
Welcome to the Dead Dog Caf Comedy hour. The talk is lively and the coffee's always on and you never know who will drop in.

For first time visitors, you'll meet the regulars at the Caf. There's Jasper Friendly Bear, the optimist of the group. We don't know what he did before starting the radio show, but since then he has talked about becoming paparazzi photographer and opening a bank at the caf. There's no end to the good that Jasper can do for the country as a whole. Then there's Gracie Heavy Hand, who is more pragmatic than Jasper. She's very "down to earth" and as a businesswoman she's very supportive of Jasper when it stands to make her some money. Then there's Tom King, who gets to play himself. He thinks he's cerebral. He also thinks that he understands both native and white culture, but he doesn't really understand either.

The Dead Dog Caf Comedy Hour currently runs 3 times a week on Radio One.

24 Episodes in Total
Duration Approximately 4 hours

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead Dog Cafe Comedy Hour Jan. 13 2002
Format:Audio Cassette
This is possibly the funniest audio recording I own, but if you aren't Canadian, and/or Native American you probably shouldn't bother. They are able to make me laugh even while harpooning me for behaviours I have been guilty of, and while making incredibly cynical comments on European treatment of North America's first residents. Because of the humour, they can make comments that would otherwise be harsh beyond belief. The cast also has a fine sense of the plain slapstick, and absurd presented with great comic timing. I've had to pull the car over several times while listening to it because I was laughing too hard to drive safely.

I'm Canadian (but not First Nations) and laughed so much during the first of these cassettes that I had to stop and buy all of them. The humour is consistent, the delivery is excellent, and the topics are hilarious - I keep listening just to find out how many different ways Jasper Friendly Bear can make Tom buy his coffee.

Absolutely hilarious, if your ego can withstand uppity Indians.
Audio File review is plainly and hopelessly clueless on this one.
