For some, movies can be a big, ugly, expensive exercise.
In the case of Craig F. Watkins, they can be sharp, funny, and a real life experience thru and thru.
Writer/comedian Watkins drops by the Barber Shop Podcast to talk about his life as a movie maker, stand up comic, and one man film company.
Craig’s latest movie THE STORE is a dark comedy about a couple of friends who hatch a plan that takes them to places they didn’t see coming. Much like his own life where destiny and design dance together in uneasy time, THE STORE is a unique piece of independent film making that has been making waves across Canada. Using his fiends from the world of stand-up-comedy as talent, Craig F. Watkins does it his way – and we like the results!
Tune in – sit down and relax – you’re amongst friends at Kevin’s Barber Shop

Life without Steve Sinnicks would be a lot more boring, less funny and nowhere near as good musically.
Hamilton-come-Niagara Sinnicks always delivers a wry, insightful performance walking the line between lore and life with the winking eye of your best pub mate.
Long, tall and lean, Steve has been a member of some of the coolest bands and played internationally with some of the best.
Always a showman, Steve spins from his latest CD The Last Irishman In Corktown, plays live in studio and makes us laugh and think in between.
Good stuff in the shop as the hair flies, ears get lowered, and a few tattered magazines are enjoyed in the back. http://sinnicks.com/
Lee Reed is a nice guy. So when you see a “LEE REED OR FUCK OFF” t-shirt you might be forgiven in assuming this is not a thinking, feeling man. Break Dancer, B-Boy, writer and rapper, Led Reed spits the truth with the conviction and fury of any legion. Small town Ontario soaks up a culture new and dangerous, while a skinny kid starts his own journey as a voice steeped in the hip hop hierarchy.
Lee likes it close to the wood, not a lot of fluff.
The Barber Shop aims to please.
