Bob Maclaren

This episode was recorded in Amsterdam.

It is ass biting cold outside and miserable rain is expected. I am currently on a theater tour performing around Holland and I'm happy to see good friends who live here that I haven't seen in a while.

One of which is Bob Maclaren. Bob has been living in Amsterdam for 20 years and speaks fluent Dutch. He is from New Zealand and like me he does all the great world wide comedy gigs. 

I met Bob when I first moved to Holland. He and I were both considered as the host of a travel program for the Discovery channel and Bob got it which mildly irked me. In today's conversation I find out that Bob was up for the host of the Amsterdam Late Night talk show that I got and he was mildly irked that I got it. It's like when you are young, the people you have issues or competition with usually are the ones who become your closest friends. 

I have an infinite amount of respect for Bob because he not only is a naturally funny story teller and comedian, he is also one of the top comedy television writers for Dutch television. He now also is producing television shows that he creates the concepts of. He is currently about to finish filming a series for Dutch television that he created where he takes Dutch comedians of ethnic immigrant backgrounds back to their mother countries to see how that influences them as comedians. I think it is a brilliant concept and it should go world wide if the television Gods keep the universal balance right.

Bob is full of fascinating stories and the world knowledge of traveling the world as a comedian.

It's my pleasure to present to you the one and only Mr. Bob Maclaren.
