Podcast: December 8, 2012

It’s another Wednesday Wiggle at Lizzie McNeill’s for Skinny & Houli as they re-cap recent fundraisers they’ve hit, including Marty McGarry’s on Sunday and Alderman Ed Burke’s on Tues. celebrating his 44th year in office. Then comedian Pat McGann (www.patmcganncomedy.com) drops by with jokes and stories. Pat is the house emcee at Zanies and gives us the lowdown on the life of a comic as he and Skinny discuss Irish cuisine, Bears fans, and then Skinny tells the prison joke. We continue to get after it with “Who Cares?” and “Who Died?” and then we’re joined by Irish American News editor & publisher Cliff Carlson, (www.irishamericannews.com), with all the craic in our community. Skinny & Houli are in the Christmas spirit and remind everybody that the South Side Irish Parade Store, (www.southsideirishparade.org), is open for the holidays at 10934 South Western where you can get stocking stuffers like parade shirts as well as Houli’s books and DVDs. Merry Christmas!
