GST S3: Episode 151 - David Steinberg

David Steinberg's in the red chair. There's no shortage of funny Canadians south of the border. And the one who cleared the way for all of them is David Steinberg. He proved you could come from Canada - Winnipeg, in David's case -and become a successful comedian. David helped transform stand-up in the '60s, marking the shift from one-liners to personal stories and cutting social satire. Behind the camera he's directed 'Newhart', 'Curb Your Enthusiasm', and 'Seinfeld'. It was Jerry, by the way, who coined the title of a new documentary about David's legacy that premiered at the Hot Docs festival in Toronto. A film called 'Quality Balls'. Plus, we've got some Unsolicited Advice from Steve-O on the show, a dissertation on Guitar Heroes from Dragon (and axe-man) Kevin O'Leary, and a great story from Clara Hughes.
