WIRE TAP LIVE!
Whether he is arguing with an ex-girlfriend about his lack of style, counseling a friend who’s recently become addicted to eating rabbit food, or trying to give his nephew advice about women, Goldstein gleefully welcomes all eavesdroppers. Each episode swings back and forth between his monologues and phone chats with a roster of some of the funniest story-tellers on the radio today.
About the Show
Enter the mind of Jonathan Goldstein. It’s a nice place to visit, but you wouldn’t want to live there. Part monologue and part telephone conversation, WireTap ushers you into the endearingly odd, funny universe of Jonathan’s friends and family. The Montreal Gazette calls the show “something between borscht-belt comedy and Franz Kafka” and the Toronto Star describes it as “[pitting] the absurd against the plausible. The sense is of a world not completely unlike our own that runs parallel… conversation, storytelling and introspection, culled from equal parts real-world experience and the warp of Goldstein’s imagination.” WireTap was awarded the Gold World Medal for Best Regularly Scheduled Comedy Program at The New York Festivals in 2006.
WireTap is produced by Jonathan Goldstein, with Mira Burt-Wintonick and Cristal Duhaime.
