The show begins this week with a lot of questions for Dean. What is Sci-Fi Valley Con? Who is Julian? There is/was a TV show called “Supernatural”? Is Detroit really Canada’s Tijuana? And a listener wants to know if Dean got bit by a monkey on “The Lone Gunmen”! You will learn the answers to all these and many more, including what Dean and Phil think of the controversy surrounding Dave Chappelle’s latest Netflix special. You will also learn about one of the greatest voices in comedy, about perhaps the greatest Hammond organist of all time, and about one of the most groundbreaking indie filmmakers of all time in “Celebrity Deaths”. After the break, Dean and Phil offer analysis on the new James Bond film’s box office performance in the USA and put that performance into historic context. They will do the same with the film’s quality. Finally, they will reveal what upcoming movies might get them to go back into a movie theater in the coming weeks.
Dean and Phil traveled to Berlin for X-Con, a fan-run “X-Files” convention. While there, Dean performed one of his most hilarious improv comedy shows ever, mingled with fans, and took a tour of some of Berlin’s most historic, conspiracy-related sites, while Phil shot High Defintion footage of the entire trip for their documentary The Truth is Out There …
Oh, and they also managed to record this week’s show in front of a live audience from a hotel ballroom in the heart of downtown Berlin!
For the full hour, Dean and Phil answered questions from the audience members, who themselves came from as diverse an array of countries as Norway, Holland, the UK, Chile and, of course, Germany.
Unfortunately, due to a blown mixing board, the audio suffers from a bit of an echo and some of the audience questions are a bit tough to hear.
Still, you won’t want to miss it because this show is top notch, as it always is when we get feedback and questions from our listeners. That’s what we mean when we say that it is YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
Dean is back from the Eco Gift Fest with some rather sad news about the state of “Green” commerce in the face of the current “economic downturn.” That downturn isn’t keeping people away from movie theatres and Dean and Phil analyze the latest box office returns. They also get into some filmmaking nitty-gritty, discussing the importance of tone, as well as the art and business of choosing roles as an actor. Finally, they discuss a wide range of films, including a few you really need to check out! Sure, it sounds dull, but for some strange reason, it’s one of our funniest shows ever.
