Reed Holm, Who is this guy?
If the Village of Whistler was a majestic medieval kingdom with kings and queens and dragons and wizards, there is but one man who could lay claim to the title of court jester. He is not your ordinary man, but truly one in 6,769,593,359, which of course, is the current population of the world that he has effortlessly made funnier. His unwavering and unpredictable brand of humor brings blissful joy to the entourage that constantly and happily surrounds him, and his raw and rough freestyles, comical facial expressions, and grandiose entrances are simply unmatched. He is a legend in the minds of all those who’ve had the utmost pleasure of basking in his presence. He is Reed Speedman International Nothing. And you want to know him. - Jeff SchmuckSpeedman

Reedo turned to Speedo to Reedman and then to Speedmanâ¦ And Bibby addressed me as my business title. Reed Speedman, International Nothing. How are ya.

What is with your hair cut? Do you gel it?
Itâs fly. And when I went to get it some super hot chick was cutting hair and I was super stoked. In my head I already had her number and was rounding first base. She asks if I want a cut after this other dude. I nod stoked. Then some busted ass chick old and fat comes out so you can hate her or hate her. And now I look ten. Yes gel.
What do you do for a living?
Describe how you would pick up a chick in the bar? At a coffee shop? At the lake?

Tell me your favorite story that best describes who you are, really?
During Telus Festival I got tan lines on my dimples from smiling so much. Iâm happy a lot. I wanna tell a better one like âu are now,â but that might be a little gnarly and show how awesome I am.
Whatâs your relation to the ski industry?
Ummmm well I grew up skiing with TJ and Bibby (whatever not a big deal whatever) and some other Vernon cats and Iâm from Kimberleyâ¦big ups Dude Ranch Frat. I was good and shared podium with those handsome hunks then fell really good and shattered my shit hella hard before it was cool to do it. And then I consistently have not been able to get good ever. AHAHA, so I went to COLLEGE!!! Got bunch of it paid cause Iâm brainy as hell. And now Iâm back in Whistler thinking about dropping in on the industry bizzz styles like Ferg and Cody, theyâre fly. But for now Iâm just super funny and everyone whose PROOOOOOO can just steal my jokes and use them in their next yearâs segmentsâ¦idiots. But now I make tons of pals from it so thatâs good stuff.
Tell us about your new hit single, âMe and My Joe Friendâ that is gonna put âMy Friend is a Proâ to shame.
Ummmm well the track is to the beat âMe and My Girlfriendâ with my good friend Sean Carter aka Jay-Z and his shorty B. And itâs Bibby, Chug and I verbally slaying shit. But it took like five minutes and we kinda got over it. But hopefully it turns out funny for at least us. Itâs about Joe âCheese Bellyâ Schuster and how he kills it soooooper hard but donât really got dem papers yet mannnnn. As far as the second part goes, my friends are actually pros but as far as pro visuals it probably will be a huge let down in comparison but I will laugh harder at mine, cause I think Iâm really, really funny. And ours will only be funny to 10 people but those 10 will think itâs a hundred times better than âMy Friend is a Pro.â This is how Pac and Biggie died.
How did you break your ankle earlier this year?
I was braining. I had just got off my shoulder brace and just locked down three weeks of private lessons. Then some super brain chick pissed me off and I kicked a pylon. Then I tried to put it back in my ski boot and it kinda cracked. But I just told everyone it was from skiing, cause Iâm so good. So I judged the ski shit at WSI in a cast with bunch good dudes with handsome Mike Atkinson as the boss and had to pee in a bottle cause I couldnât climb down the judgesâ ladder booth. JEEEA!
Who is your favorite country singer?
Alan Jackson. He has dope blonde hair, a fly-ass moustache and tight jeans with the hottest chick ever. And unlike most rap songs I can relate to that guy, âWe were fogging up the windows in my olâ Chevy, I was willing but she wasnât ready, so I settle for a burger and a grape snow cone, dropped her off early but I didnât go homeâ¦down by the river on a Friday night, pyramid of cans in the pale moonlight, talking bout cars and dreamin bout women.â Thatâs real shitâ¦
What place did you get in batchi last year at July Fest?
Hahaha, itâs bocce u mathemagician. We screwed up at the Bocce Nationals in my hometown so we started a Frat so we could enter a team. STEW LABINE AND I are the original castâ¦Berny and my boy Sleazy T are in there and Pinhead has been trying and Bulf may get on sometime too. And we just wear little boy outfits and play bocce party so hard and chirp old-ass men. But we played early Saturday morning and I was the only one who showed up, haha. Ricketts Rip Curl guy and long time friend hopped on board and it was dope. We also have teen heartthrobs Ty Spence and Margetts pledgingâ¦and that reminds meâ¦when you read this Marg ten push-ups yelling Dude Ranch and that youâre a scientist of butt cheeks. Itâs coming up in two weeks so I hope we win…Gibby will lose for sure.
Who gave you the nickname Reedo and what is the story behind that?
Well me and one of my best friends JOSHUA ROBERT BIBBY were on the chair going up to the glacier three years ago. Lilâ hung over and Bibbyâs Dad Bob who is the man calls us and then for some reason calls me Reedo. And we laugh about it. Then we start using it and now itâs more common than regular Reed. So thanks BOB-O, cause he is the creator.
