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.

FROM THE ARCHIVES

We recorded this episode in November, 2016 but never published it.  Right before Thanksgiving and just after the election we got together and recorded a 3 hour session.  A lot of our conversation dealt with Trump and the election and aftermath.

Although still relevant, I've cut all the Trump stuff out since it's a bit dated and I'm tired of hearing about Trump everyday.  What is left is just over an hour of our conversation which features a hilarious story by Josiah James about his trip to Saginaw, Michigan.

comedy

Josiah has a funny story about his trip to Saginaw Michigan where he was working on-site at a hotel that eerily resembled The Overlook Hotel from Stanley Kubrick's The Shining. Josiah and Ryan listen to Dave Chappelle's opening monologue from November, 2016 when he hosted SNL.  It was Dave's return to standup after being away for over a decade.

entertainment

Ryan talks about a look book that he was requested to put together for a tv show his pitching to Hollywood.  Josiah helps Ryan with the design and presentation in hopes that Hollywood gives it a pass.

technology

What's with the NOTE 7?  This device is so lethal you can't even bring it to airports.  Josiah talks about this and a girl he saw on the plane that he wished he was fortunate enough to sit next to.

GOOD HEADLINES

Josiah and Ryan close the show with Good Headlines.

Acute Angina

COMEDY

It's open mic week!  Josiah James and Ryan Rossell share their open mic performances from earlier in the week.  Josiah resurfaces some older material for his set and Ryan opens with a hilarious new bit about stage time, before crashing and burning with a Halloween bit (his words, not mine).  

We were graced by a very unusual stand-up performance by a local hack comedian that went up on stage wearing a Peter Pan leotard.  We play a bit of the weirdest set ever and add our colorful commentary.

We also discuss the Barry Crimmins stand-up special 'Whatever Threatens You' that was released earlier in the month over on Louis C.K.'s website.  We review the hour special and play a few clips from Barry's performance.   

ENTERTAINMENT

What do NFL players and dildo's have in common?  They're both better when they're black. We discuss the white dildo that was thrown onto the field during the Bills vs. Patriots game.

Josiah and Ryan discuss two very powerful short films that came out recently on Vimeo.  The first is The Present, by Jacob Frey.  The second one they discuss is Borrowed Time, a very profound and unusual animated short by some Pixar folks.

Halloween season has just left us and Josiah and Ryan discuss the movie Hush, which is available on Netflix.  This movie has maintained a 100% rating over on Rotten Tomatoes, and after watching it, it's evident why it is so liked.  

Good Headlines are back this week and all of the hosts take turns reading some fake headlines.

CLOSER

Ryan closes the show with a classic joke about a slutty grandma...my favorite kind.

Baum Shelter

Open mic performances, Mascots, Nintendo Switch, and Josiah reads an email he gets from Louie C.K.

COMEDY

Josiah James and Ryan Rossell share their open mic performances with you.  Enjoy Josiah rant about his wife for 5 minutes and roll with laughter as Ryan walks you through Sky Mall magazine. Both comics agree they did better than their last time on stage, so hip hip hurrah for progress. We close the segment with Ryan finally sharing a dating story on the show...it's about time Ryan!

SKY MAGAZINE PRODUCTS (as mentioned in Ryan Rossel's open mic set this week)

 

GOOD HEADLINES

Good Headlines are back for a second week with 3 brand fake news headlines.  Josiah shares two while Coco reads the last one.  

ENTERTAINMENT

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.
