The Best Debate in the Universe - WAS 2016 THE WORST YEAR IN HISTORY OR WAS IT ANOTHER YEAR?
Monday November 28th 2016
This week I'm joined by comedian, writer and performer Joe Hartzler. Joe has been on a billion commercials and TV shows. I also forgot to mention on the episode, but we've both been in shitty horror movies. His is "Thankskilling 3." Very timely and a classic Thanksgiving horror movie, which there are probably more of than Thanksgiving comedies.
We also received this amazing fan art from Ali Hassanein for Rucka:
This week's debate was about the current year and how uncharacteristically bad it was for so many people. Was it your worst? I brought in heavy hitters like 1943, 1915, the 1860s and the decade of a little old thing called the "black plague." And before this sounds too much like an alt-right newsletter, it's also known as the "black death" and "bubonic plague." Sean chimes in with some wisdom about crotch-lumps.
And here's my Fidel Castro death-celebration video:
