An epically nerdtastic, semi-creepy episode of Straight Riffin awaits you within! Marvel at the in-depth discussions of the future of media consumption and Mitcz's hair-brained plan to save the world. Gasp as comedians describe the ongoing self-doubt of being onstage. Scream your head off during the last half, where we discuss the creepiest possible thing to uncover in an apartment - a TRUE story! All this and more.... you're gonna love it.
Lance Paullin brought the riff and the madness to our humble studio. There was much geekery to be had in the early part of the show, then we move on to a new reality show about dating comedians and we all take turns doing mock auditions. We discuss a woman who aged 50 years in a matter of days, why Mitcz could never get married, the ins and outs of being personal onstage, Scarlett Johansson's Tom Waits cover album, and a whole lot more.
Well this was a loud, crazy riff. Humberto pulls no punches and the riff never halts. We discuss the finer points of 80s heavy metal (much to Teddy's chagrin), funny laughs, typing out laughs in IMs, Jamaica, homophobia, world policy, America, racism, fetish clubs, and much more.
Comedian/Actress Victoria Avalon swings by the House of Riff for pure madness. Teddy's back in good health, and the energy is high. Both Victoria and Mitcz have "I almost got mugged" stories from a few days prior, we talk about a peculiar craigslist post involving a date going awry and a missing flash drive in a precarious location (which frightens Teddy to no end). Also, an ice cream mascot mistaken for a KKK member, some fascinating research about hallucinogens, and Teddy & Mitcz try their hand at convincing a theoretical girlfriend to agree to a 2-year wedding.
