Jumping out the gate with a raucous, in-depth discussion of the current state of Standup Comedy, Mitcz & Teddy sit with the hilarious Ben Gonzalez. We get deep into the game of the standup comedy mindset, common complaints, and the irresponsibility of hecklers and heckler apologists, and more. We also dive into a discussion of the NYT piece on the "End of Courtship" which we unanimously agree is full of B.S., and we end on a very disgusting invention for your stomach.
Much ado about Phoenix in this episode, when Cody Kopp reveals he has a geographic similarity to Mitcz. We also discuss TMZ and celebrity culture, "the biz", Hollywood, and much more. We also get into the culture of Arizona, and why Sheriff Joe Arpaio still sucks.
Comedian John Basset comes to the House of Riff and the ridiculousness goes off the charts. After a brief discussion of Mitcz's roofie incident, we focus on CNN's faux pas of playing Coolio's "Fantastic Voyage" over a montage of a 103 black woman driving around. This leads to some love for Weird Al (as Teddy says "Weird Al is an institution") and his recent troubles with annoyingly dramatic Lady Gaga. When a man dressed as Gumby fails in his attempt to rob a San Diego 7-11, Teddy struggles to regain his composure, and we discuss other weird TV of the 80s (of which Mitcz is woefully ignorant about). The show closes out with a dissertation on the insanity of Souljah Boy.
