Tom Rhodes Radio is in New Zealand! After doing the NZ comedy Festival in Auckland I did a 2 week best of the fest tour going all over the country. With a small group of comedians we shared planes, van rides, and stages every night for 2 weeks. Of this great group of guys Jesse Griffin and I became fast friends. He is lovably smooth and his jokes are sharply funny. I thought him to be one of the best Kiwi comedians that I saw.
Aside from being a comedian, writing for television and making movies he has an American cowboy persona that he performs under the name of Wilson Dixon. As Wilson Dixon he has toured comedy festivals around the world achieving great success. Wilson Dixon is a philosophical wise cracking American Country & Western singer songwriter with thunderously good punchlines. Jesse Griffin is a man of many talents and he is good fun to be on tour with.
We recorded this at the end of our 2 week tour together in Timaru, New Zealand. Our days were so full of traveling and performing and in a town without much to do we had this chat where we talk about interesting facts about New Zealand, the extraordinary event of meeting his wife, the killer character he created with Wilson Dixon, killing his demons before making babies, the joy of comedy and a wide range of subjects bouncing off of each others ideas.
New Zealand is one of the heavenliest places on earth and one of the best gems I found there is Jesse Griffin.
