Episode #233 – The Comedian

We discuss the most accurate and hilarious movie about stand-up ever made, The Comedian. Meanwhile Dan starts off the show by being gross, Stuart reveals his favorite kind of turtle, and Elliott tells us about a few nursery rhyme comedians. Apologies for the continued low Stuart audio. We’re trying to get to the bottom of it.

    In early episodes of Married With Children, the show received complaints because Kelly owned her own sexuality, so they dumbed her down for future seasons.

    So, as part of Cagemas Creep, might I suggest August Disgust: where only the most disgusting flops are discussed.

  4. Erin says:

    The stand-up bits in Sleepwalk With Me work well. Also, surprised no one mentioned (or recommended) The King of Comedy; DeNiro is great as Rupert Pupkin!

  5. Sam says:

    The part about old Travis Bickle was awkward given the events of the day.
