Episode 273 - Alyssa Sabo - After the Flood


Alyssa Sabo (@alyssa_sabo) rollerblades her way back into our lives with her truly unique style of absurdist comedy. Louis CK’s long known peccadilloes are finally exposed to the wider world. The iPhone X is finally exposed to the wider world. Twitter - the most perfect social media platform ever devised - has made itself (impossible to imagine) even more perfect with the expansion to 280 characters. Let the healing of the universe begin, one bloated tweet at a time.

Misha D (@NotRealMishaD) is a reformed storyteller, currently a stand up comedian, and a goddamn entertaining delight. He explains to us his decision to leave the world of spoken word for the more perilous one of open mic. There’s a bunch of new shows coming this month, so we test Misha to see if he can decipher the premise just from the title. Taylor Swift has once again pounced upon pop culture so, inevitably, we must discuss. Restaurants keep changing their menus on Will and he’s had enough of it.

Why is it so hard for people to figure out where their seats are at theaters and concerts?  You just sit down where your ticket tells you to sit - this shouldn’t be that complicated!
