Hey everyone! This is a movie I made based on one of my stand up jokes that, out of 260+ people that submitted videos, made it in to the top 16! Now you can watch it because its awesome and hilarious and also because the more views I get, the closer I come to getting to screen my movie in Hollywood.

Do your part and watch it and reblog it and do all that cool shit thanks!!!

Hey hey ladies and gents we have a lot to talk about in this episode so we brought in TWO very special guests. Ben Kolina becomes our first ever returning guest and he brings with him comedian and creator of the Bay Area comedy blog Courting Comedy O.J. Patterson. This week we talk about Glee, J. B. Smoove, poop, BB spin offs, and of course the fate of dear old Mike.

Due to some weird technical glitches there’s a weird echo that develops during the course of this episode. We know about it and did as much as we could to fix it. Sorry.
