Jian Gomeshi, the standup comedian. Who knew?

Jian’s Q show on CBC Radio is so serious – despite the large smile on its homepage – that we missed this part of the man.

Luckily, he doesn’t hide it. This guy – my generation, and as a radioman myself I can’t help but like what he does – showed up last night at the CFC Media Lab‘s ideaBOOST project launch party (of the current cohort) and did a great MC’ing job. But the opening lines were the best.

Listen those lines below.

Listen (2 minutes):


I was moved by 2 of the 6 ideas presented last night, and will soon post more about those exciting people:

Idearadio – like Jian, I have a million questions for these guys. Some were answered by founder Kevin.

Wondereur – superb storytelling in support of art selling. Loving both ideas. Got some audio with co-founder Sophie Perceval, her French access was an audio delight in itself.
