Channel Description:

BLAND IS BORING is a foody, boozy late-night romp through the intermingling worlds of food and comedy. With Montreal comedians (and self-described foodies) Ali Hassan and Massimo, and new guests every week. Standup stories, hilarious confessions and embarrassing comedy adventures set against a back drop of all-night diners, greasy spoons and famous Canadian hangouts. From pub grub to fine dining, they've done it all.

  • 07/06/15--20:13: Episode 1
  • Pilot episode! Massimo is already MIA. But he'll be back next week. (And to be fair, we actually recorded these out of order) Co-host Ali Hassan (CBC's Laugh Out Loud, Just for Laughs) is joined in studio by fellow Montrealer and food-destroyer Patrick Hakeem for food porn, standup stories, and Maple-glazed comedy talk.

  • 07/13/15--19:31: Ep 2. Meat Season
  • Ali & Massimo are back together, at last! This week, it's summer time and the sizzling is easy. We know that was lame, but its BBQ season and the bros have some smokin' hot meat stories to share. Patrick Hakeem bails this week (it's a game of Montreal comedy musical chairs!) And Ali lands a big gig (hint, it's international)

  • 08/07/15--18:21: Ep. 3 - Expiry Dates
  • This week's episode is a little past it's expiry date... but we think it tastes just right! This was Ali & Massimo's first session in the @TALKHOLEpod studio. So, the introductions aren't needed. We say we don't have an intro yet - but as you can hear, we do! And we plug two locations of a restaurant that has since opened up a 3rd. (Hint: this week's network ID is brought to us by an artist who is definitely NOT starving)

  • We're back from summer break with an all new Bland is Boring. Ali Hassan is a real big shot, fresh from his gig as the in-house announcer at a certain international sporting event held in Toronto. And, as usual - food talk. Gooey, sexy, mouthwatering food talk. And a good gentle ribbing from Massimo

  • This week on Bland is Boring, Ali Hassan sits in solo while Massimo gigs back home in Montreal. And man, does Hassan pack a punch! Part year-in-review, part Bland is Boring stump speech, part New Years Resolution. Hassan gets real on Syrian refugees, the state of America, Racism. And Massimo's own recent successes. It's a raw one, and its dryly funny.
