The best dinosaur: Clever Apes’ Microscopic Comedy Showcase

We close out dino-week with a further appreciation of dinosaur philosopher and man of letters, Dan Telfer. We were so charmed by his passionate dino-comedy that we talked him into performing it here at the WBEZ studio. This took some courage on his part, as interactive stand-up comedy is probably best accomplished in a boozy club, rather than before an earnest, tote-bagging public radio crowd at 2:00 pm. But Dan, to his great credit, was game. (Warning- the video contains stronger language than we can play on the radio!)

After the gig, we sat Dan down to talk about the origins of his dinosaur routine. Hear our interview here:

Huge thanks to Andrew Gill for shooting and editing the video, Michael De Bonis for production and Mary Gaffeny for engineering. Dino palz 4 LIFE.
