John Hilder and Ben Dieterle’s Hang

John Hilder, a brilliant stand up comic from Las Vegas, joined me in the studio to talk about his first time, Robin Williams, and why comedy worries his mother.


Hilder keeps a busy schedule, touring nationally.  Connect with John here to find out where he’ll be performing next:

Have you ever heard of a Hang?  It’s pronounced “hong”, looks like a UFO, and is the youngest new musical instrument on the scene. The Hang was invented in 2000 by a couple of engineers. Despite it’s newness, it creates sounds that hearken to much older times. Hang player Ben Dieterle joined us to play the Hang and shared a lot of fascinating information about it.


Ben will be performing at Poplar Street Pub in Salt Lake City on Saturday, 23 Aug at 4pm.  242 South 200 West.
