The Montreal podcast that asks the multi-talented Iris Bahr: “What are you doing to cope with climate anxiety?” That question asked by Montreal Fringe Executive and Artistic Director Amy Blackmore and Montreal Fringe Artistic Producer Kenny Streule in episode 296.

When I was telling people that we were going to be having Iris Bahr on the show, it only took mentioning “the chairlift scene” from Curb Your Enthusiasm to illicit an immediate reaction. Add the fact that Iris Bahr has published multiple books, performed in multiple films and television shows (including one of my favorites ‘Hacks’), performs stand-up, one woman shows, podcasts… well let’s just say that it can honestly be a little daunting as someone who by and large does just one thing.

Chris Venditto steps up to co-host this one (in the middle of a thunderstorm) and we talk about performing, doing comedy, mean old ladies and more. Iris Bahr’s one-woman show “Stories from the Brink – My Festive Near Death Adventures” comes to this year’s edition of the Montreal Fringe Festival from June 8th to 16th. Tickets and info here.
