0209 Tom Green

podcast

This episode starts on a lonely tip because Joel isn’t sure Kevin is going to call. And, as to not ruin the surprise, I’m not going to say whether he calls or not here.

After that cliff-hanger, Joel and Kevin discuss what they’ve been up to for the last month. It’s a very interesting journey Kevin has been on and certainly very sad not journeying that Joel’s been doing.

After the commercial break, they reach into the hat to get the name of the comedian: Tom Green! He’s a Canadian comedian. A lot of very good comedians come from Canada. Tom comes from Canada too. More interestingly, we discuss changing the format to a three act structure.  Also, can you talk Tom Green without discussing Interstellar in conjunction with Freddy Got Fringered? No.

Next up is Kevin’s Klassic Kranks and this one is pretty wild! Listen to it.

As an assignment: What was the most Klassic or the most Krank about this week’s segment? Describe where the funny was. We want to know that you know why it’s brilliant!

0208 Kevin James

podcast

This episode begins with a discussion about the EchoBox Kevin uses to speak to Joel and record the ‘cast. Then they get the 411 (information) on where in the world this Kevin guy is anyhow. He’s doing comedy in a shanty town and boy, some of those jokes are drop dead hilarious!

They they talk about an excited DVD release that is upcoming! I’m not going to spoil it here, but it includes “Kevin’s Grand Slam”.

Then we pick the name of the comedian and it’s Kevin James. He’s the king of comedy, hamburgers and Queens. He inspires a discussion about likability. Kevin James is like the milk of comedy.

0206 Aziz Ansari

podcast

This week’s episode features an in-depth discussion about whether comedy is magic, art or science right off the top. This stems from Kevin telling me about a wizard and a faun in the Enchanted Forest. Joel wonders if maple syrup on cereal could be the catalyst to finding their elusive answers.

Then they give a impromptu tribute to the famous Jerry Miles, a very famous Nation comedian. You always miss Jerry, the grandfather of comedy.

Then they dive into the hat ‘o comedians and find the name of Aziz Ansari who is used to illustrate how to make hilarious comedy jokes, even as an Indian person.

The segment this week is our famous “What’s the Difference” segment. This one is very enlightening.

0205 John Ritter

podcastOur episode kicks off this week with a little back story about the beginning of our ‘cast. We were so excited to start talking about the Comedy Tree.

Everyone will be happy to hear that Kevin is safe out of the desert and he’s now on the outskirts of the Enchanted Forest. We go into great, interesting detail about what that forest is and how it’s like.

Of course, the meat of the episode arrives and we discuss the comedian John Ritter. He’s dead. But that doesn’t stop them from going over his credits: Three’s Company, Rules for Dating my Teenage Daughter, Big Bang Theory with Kelly Cuococo. This leads them into a conversation about “straight men (people)” in comedy.

Assignment This Week: Thank us!

Then we do the enlightening segment of “Can I Be Your…”

0202 Tracy Morgan

podcastThis week’s episode starts out with a discussion about how exciting it is when we post these podcasts and the post podcast ritual we partake in. Then the conversation turns to Kevin’s ongoing travels and the fun week Joel is looking forward to as it is Kite Week in the Nation.

Of course, the conversation turns to Kevin’s new “yo’ mama” jokes. We get really deep into the classic, timeless “yo’ mama” or “blonde” jokes. They also let language breathe and grow by changing the definition of “diverge”.kite week

Joel then digs into the Hat ‘O Comedians and pulls out Tracy Morgan! This brings up the big comedy question of girl’s names on boy comedians. This leads to the laugh and then follow up laugh rule of comedy. The discussion turns again, but this time they discuss The Fault in Our Stars film which was an unlikely comedy to come out in 2014. Christopher Guest and his Best For Show, Waiting for Guffman films are mentioned and diverge with comments on Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Fred Willard. We touch on the Production King of Comedy: Seth Rogan and his lackie James Franco.

0201 Richard Pryor

podcastWe start the year out with a bit of a different thing from last season. Kevin has left Joel in the lurch, so to speak, by deciding to do the 199 days of travel. This week he’s in the Westernmost Mountains. They talk about his Sherpa (Korojo), Joel’s photography website and other intriguing travel related things. Joel asks some stirring questions about New York City and how traveling there really is the only place a comedian needs to go as his/her pilgrimage.

Then we get into the comedian of the week as picked out of the Hat O’ Comedians! This week, as the title says, it’s Richard Pryor.  Before really getting into it, we discuss Mike Birbiglia’s rise to fame due to our support.

We let our students know that the Pry guy is dead, but he lives on in many other famous comedians’ voices and eyes: Chris Rock, Dave Chapelle, Eddie Griffin, Eddie Murphy, Steve Harvey, Kevin Hart, Bill Cosby. Basically all the black comedians. Who was the white version of Dick? Well, it was Gene Wilder in the Mel Brooks films.

Then we share a new segment: Kevin’s Klassic Kranks!

Joel also mentions his accidental podcast: voice memos.
