Ken Cuperus is an award winning screenwriter and producer.
We met decades ago when Ken approached me after a performance at the Winnipeg Fringe festival, asking if I'd help his comedy troupe.
A few years later Ken and his pals, known as the Brave New Weasels, were performing to sold out crowds at Fringe Festivals.
We talk about the gutsy move to leave the comfort of being a big finish in a small pond, Winnipeg, to start with nothing more than one month's rent in Toronto.
We also touch on working with Gene Simmons and Ken's worst pitch meeting.
