This week we feature an interview with John Sheehan, a Newfoundland Comedian & atheist. We discuss the Mount Cashel Scandal (a Catholic orphanage that has come under scrutiny after 300 men came forward with sexual & physical abuse allegations). we also discuss the "Sainthood" of Mother Theresa.
John Sheehan is one of Newfoundland and Labrador’s hottest rising stars. He has quickly gained tremendous national recognition and exposure as a stand-up comedian. He has appeared at The Halifax Comedy Festival, The St. John’s Comedy Festival, CBC Radio’s The Debators, and in several television commercials. Then it was stand-up gigs with corporate clients such as Labatt Breweries, Royal LePage, and Sobey’s.
Throw in three kids, a patient wife, a mortgage and way too much CPR training (he is a firefighter too – check out MR. JANUARY) and the choice was obvious.
He has his own Youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/JSheehan02) where you can find some of his comedy and his new show known as the Panel.
He has preformed shows with Caroline Rhea, Gerry Dee, and Louis CK.OUR SPONSOR:The Crafty Free Thinker is our sponsor:Atheist, humanist, and secular jewelry for those who don't like the idea of wearing a torture device around their neck.
