Reason Gone Mad is a companion podcast to our 2015 season! According to Groucho Marx, “Humor is reason gone mad.” Comedy Suitcase puts that quote to the test as Joshua and Levi along with special guests examine the work and influence of classic 20th century comedians. Our first episode focuses on comedy legend Lucille Ball and her groundbreaking work in I Love Lucy!
Shanan Custer, Twin Cities comedian of some note, joins Joshua and Levi as they discuss two classic episodes of I Love Lucy, “Lucy thinks Ricky is trying to murder her” and “Lucy does a TV commercial.” Wordplay, physical comedy, a brilliant straight-man, and perfect comedy timing, I Love Lucy has it all and Joshua, Levi, and Shanan can’t get enough of it. Watch both episodes of the show if you haven’t already and then listen to this funny and delightful conversation.
Let us know in the comments if you’ve got a favorite episode of I Love Lucy and tell us if you Love Lucy.
