Evan Shaprio, President of National Lampoon joins us to debate Philly vs NY/NJ sports and to rehash some old wounds. He is a man with a plan, bringing the Lampoon back to the forefront of comedy.
Totally the most fun we can have over Zoom with the hysterical, Marshfield, MA native, Dancer, model, retired professional drinker and amazing stand-up comedian we chat about getting fired on her birthday from the worst jobs she had.. Her semi biographical short film Sh*tfaced, coming up stand-up, amazing roast battles, and a zillion other things predictably, unpredictable

The legendary Jackie "The Jokeman" Martling has no idea who we are yet agreed to come on and was such a great sport and pegged us pretty good. We got a ton of stories on his early stand up, helping to start Long Island comedy club Governors, all his years on the Howard Stern Show, and great stories about The Gregalicious' comedy idol, Rodney Dangerfield
We uncovered Erica went to college as a chelo major and that her entrance into comedy was pitching a comedy agent before she even did stand up. spoiler alert...it worked! She has had a number 1 iTunes comedy album, was on NBC's Bring the Funny, grew up on the A Prairie Home Companion radio show and is one of the funniest working comedians out there now.
If you know Anthony, you know nothing was held back. If you ever wanted to listen in to what a conversation over some beers sounds like with The Mooch, this is the one to listen too. Politics, stocks, hip hip, the virus, family and some less than honorable people, we touched them all.

It truly is our Holy Sh*t moment.
Larry The Cable Guy stumbled into our virtual studio clearly by mistake and sat in with us for an incredibly funny time. On the verge of his new comedy special coming out, 10+ years in the making, we talked about how he got started in stand-up, the origins of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, some great advice for aspiring comedians, and of course, what's going on in virus lock down. git-r-done we did.
So take a look at us now....we're still standing here... Sitting around against all odd's shooting the breeze with Brenton from the All Things Comedy family. Stand-Up comedian, Podcast host, content creator and fantasy football pro, we touch all bases on this episode with a comedy ringer.
No better way to ring in 2020 than with the hysterical, bad a*s, fitness junkie and fellow Italian, Liz Miele. Asking the burning question "how did I get myself into this", she joins TMD to start the year off with a bang. Spoiler alert....don't mess with her mom. For the rest, you're going to need to listen.
TMD seemingly hits its stride, and jams into this one thanks to fellow Deadhead, Phishhead, live music fanatic and joker, Mike Finoia. This one is too good to throw spoilers at you here, but we talked about everything from getting his breaks in Stand-Up and great advice to up and coming comics, to our incredible shared obsession with The Grateful Dead and all things live music. Let's twirl.
TMD is getting the funk out!! Joining us for a healthy dose of Alphabet Soup is Greg Ormont. Vocalist, guitar player, scrambled not stirred, funk master general of the band Pigeons Playing Ping Pong. If you like to party or have a good time of any kind, you need to get familiar with this band as they bring. it in the funkiest of. fashions. We got the inside scoop on how the name really came about, 10 years worth of "over night" success, growing up on Long Island
TMD may have met their match with this one. Steph & AJ called in to pop their podcast cherry and light the place on fire with laughter. Reality TV junkies, and risk takers alike will love this one for sure. We talk everything from "what were you thinking?" to "when did IT happen?" and literally everything in between. Our sides still hurt. We may have outdone ourselves with this one...
Thank you for blessing me with a mind to rhyme and two hype feet.....TMD scored another hot one welcoming firecracker Punkie Johnson to the 900# Mangina call-in hotline. How lucky are we to grab The Comedy Store paid regular while she is in the process of blowing up. You can see her on Crank Yankers, Light Out with David Spade, and some upcoming film with super star we cant tell you about....
Buckle the f*cK up and get with TMD for the wildest ride yet with Harley Flanagan, founder of the hardcore band, Cro-Mags. No horsing around, we talk about the impossible sausage (?) available at Dunkin, Lemmy coming to us in dreams, the discipline of jiu-jitsu, jail, touring with the Misfits reunion shows and most importantly, setting the record straight on the legal battles over the name Cro-Mags.

We talk everything from hip hop puppet videos, Vic's book "Wait For The Corn" to all aspects of "the business" and what sites to "support". Strap it on, and come join us to see what's in the box with two of the funniest people we have had the pleasure of chatting with.
