It’s a busy time for comedian Mark Chalifoux, onstage and off. “I’m coaching 6-year-olds in soccer,” he says, “and I’ve been traveling a lot.”

He’s hoping to end 2019 on a high note. “I’m going to win my fantasy football league championship, then get a TV spot,” he states.

He’s also trying to get pal, fellow comic Josh Sneed, to reboot their popular podcast Detention. “I was somewhere and a guy said to me, ‘I love your podcast.’ I thought, ‘You’ve got the wrong guy.’” But the fan continued, “You had Jimmy Pardo and T.J. Miller on.” That was indeed Detention. “That’s a super fan,” Chalifoux says.

His album, Think Fast, which came out in 2018, continues to do well. Although you can buy it, Chalifoux recommends simply streaming it from your platform of choice. “I just want people to enjoy it,” he says.
