Paint or Pussy?

COMEDY

Josiah James, Ryan Rossell and Doug McHarris open Season 2 with discussing a Jim Gaffigan concert that Doug recently attended. Later on they play some clips from Sacha Baron Cohen's new show, Who Is America and discuss.  Afterwards, Josiah shares a brand new open mic performance from earlier in the summer.  Doug and Josiah tell a story about how they first met at the worst gig ever in Springfield, New Jersey.

PAINT OR PUSSY

The hosts play a brand new game called Paint or Pussy.  Josiah will announce a name and the other hosts have to decide if it is the name of a paint color or the name of a feminine hygiene product.  

IMPROV

The hosts close the show with two games of New Choice.  We will try to close every show of this season with some sort of improvisational game, so we'll see how that goes.

M. Night Shyama long a ding dong

In Episode 5, M. Night Shymalongadingdong, Josiah James and Ryan Rossell discuss comedians Kevin Hart, Carrot Top and Steven Wright.  In Entertainment, they discuss M. Night Shyamalan, Obama and Doritos Super Bowl commercials.  In Technology, they talk about David Lynch, John Malkovich, Squarespace and D.D.O.S. attacks.  

Social Shout out to @SiriouslySusan, who just recently followed @jokesbyjo on Twitter.

COMEDY

Is Kevin Hart funny?  Josiah and Ryan discuss this question that popped up over on Reddit.  
What's going on with professional teams that are named after Native Americans?  Ryan poses this question and the two hosts discuss.  Ryan shares a classic Native American joke and Josiah shares an original joke about his obsession with Native American porn.  Steven Wright gets a mention and Josiah and Ryan share their favorite Steven Wright jokes.  

Ryan talks about the time he met Carrot Top, and the hosts discuss his style of prop comedy. 

ENTERTAINMENT

Josiah shares a music video he wrote and directed called Obama Said Knock You Out.  Ryan and Josiah discuss the rap video and how it's still relevant in today's political climate.  With our current choices for the next President, Josiah suggests we should let Obama go a third round.

This political parody uses the instrumentals from LL Cool J's famous hit, 'Mama Said Knock You Out' to portray President Barack Obama rapping about how he's still the best candidate for presidency. Let's let him go three rounds and knock out the other lightweight contenders.

Josiah and Ryan share a project they collaborated on together for a Doritos Superbowl commercial contest that they still feel should have won them one million dollars and a contract at a major movie studio.  

This is my submission to the Doritos 2013 Crash the Super Bowl contest. It was inspired by a real life cardinal that flies into my living room window every morning.

For those that are interested, you can view the short film that inspired this commercial called The Crazy Cardinal.

Is M. Night Shyamalan back?  Josiah and Ryan watch the new trailer for his latest film Split, and how this may be the proof in the pudding that he is back to making great films again.

TECHNOLOGY

Squarespace, David Lynch and John Malkovich collaborate on a new project and Josiah and Ryan share clips and discuss the new website playinglynch.com.  The site is a collaborative meditation on the work of David Lynch.  

How fragile is the Internet?  Josiah and Ryan discuss the latest D.D.O.S. attack that targeted the DNS servers that brought down some of the most visited sites on the web.  Who was responsible?  How can we protect ourselves from future attacks?  

CLOSER

Josiah and Ryan discuss their upcoming open mic performances and dating Amy Schumer.
Ryan closes the show with his favorite classic joke about 2 old men playing chess in a park.

GOOD HEADLINES

Josiah and Ryan discuss the new movie by Christopher Guest, Mascots.  Both are huge fans of his work and this film certainly doesn't disappoint.  Josiah gives it a 5/5 with Ryan being safe and giving it a 4/5.  Be sure to catch all the comedy, exclusively on Netflix.

TECHNOLOGY

Nintendo has a new console coming out next March, and Josiah and Ryan watch the promo video and discuss the new gaming console, aptly named "Switch".  

 

CLOSER

Josiah shares an email that he received from his favorite comedian, Louie C.K.  Louie likes to write novels when he writes Josiah, so the closer for today's show is Josiah reading the entire email out loud for all the comedy fans out there.  It's certainly better than any of his dating stories.  To purchase Barry Crimmins stand up special, head on over to Louie's site and download it for $5 bucks.
