The main theme in today’s episode is comedians with physical disabilities. All comedians have mental disabilities, but today we listen to a few comedians with cerebral palsy and discuss their performances. The first is a Roast Battle between Nicole Becannon and Joe Eurell. Later in the show, we listen to a more traditional stand up routine from comedian Josh Blue, winner of 2006 Last Comic Standing who also suffers from cerebral palsy.

Clips from one of our favorite comedians George Carlin make there way onto the show again to highlight our discussion around God being the number one cause of all death and destruction in this world.

Doug recalls a haunting story about the time he received a phone call at 3am from a mutual comedy friend of ours, Tyler Rothrock.

Doug shares a story about being heckled by his wife at one of his comedy performances and how he shot her the look of death. We then play that performance for our listeners, where Doug has the crowd in stitches throughout his entire set. Big laughs, as you would expect from the one and only Doug McHizzle.

IMPROV

We close the show with several improv games. We had a lot of fun playing them and we hope you have just as much fun listening.

The Job Interview

Doug gets interviewed for a job and accepts the position but then has to guess what position he was just hired for.

Doug tries to defend his title as the champion of our favorite game. Josiah announces a name and Doug and Keith have to decide if that name is a paint color or a feminine hygiene scent.

The Operation

To close the show, Doug has an operation and tells us all about it. The thing is, he doesn’t know what operation he had, and it’s up to Keith and Josiah to steer him in the right direction. This is hilarious and you don’t want to miss it!

COMEDY

Josiah and Doug discuss the new show by Norm Macdonald on Netflix called Norm Macdonald Has a Show. From there. we talk about our favorite talk show sidekicks, and hear a hilarious sound byte from Josiah’s favorite sidekick, Karl Pilkington.

Comedian Michelle Wolf gets an honorable mention and we play a clip of her lovely gig at the Correspondents Dinner in D.C.

Is Norm Macdonald gay? We play an incriminating clip, but maybe it’s a joke.

ENTERTAINMENT

Doug entertains the idea of sleeping with his favorite actress Halle Berry, while at the same time his wife fantasizes about Eminem.

HIP-HOP

Fantasizing about Eminem takes us into the very recent Rap Battle between Eminem and Machine Gun Kelly. We play the track off Eminem’s new album Kamikaze that disses Machine Gun Kelly. Then we get to hear Machine Gun Kelly’s rebuttal, Rap Devil. And of course, Eminem comes back with his reply with a song called Kill Shot. This is Doug’s first time listening to this track and it’s very enjoyable.

Then Doug gives us a fabulous walk down hip-hop memory lane, recalling all the famous rap battles that he enjoyed listening to when he was growing up. He talks about MC SHAN, KRS ONE and Nelly, just to name a few. Lot’s of samples tracks get played, so have a listen. We hope you enjoy it.
