EPISODE 104: AL MADRIGAL
This week, Sara and Nikki reannounce the renewal of their really great TV show Nikki & Sara LIVE (thanks for watching!) before quickly introducing their guest, comedian Al Madrigal (The Daily Show, @almadrigal). Al’s new standup special Why is the Rabbit Crying? premieres on Comedy Central this Friday April 26, making this episode the perfect opportunity to reflect upon the grueling road sets and iffy TV spots that have gotten him this far. It’s “gratitude and caution”, Sara points out, that keep a comic sane as he strives through those early days, dreaming of a time when he’ll have earned the respect and admiration of both his peers and his cussing kid cousins.

Josh Patten (SNL’s Weekend Update) drops by to watch a racial-barrier-breaking episode of “Quantum Leap.” Josh and Craig grapple with the idea of a white man leaping into a black man in order to start the civil rights movement. So grab your egg salad sandwich as we “Quantum Bounce” into the world of “Quantum Leap.”
In this week’s episode, Neil Casey (Saturday Night Live), Connor Ratliff (I’m Too Fragile For This), & Jim Santangeli (The Curfew) join Abra to create a world filled with bashful nudity, misidentified men, and jellyfish on peens.
My favorite moments:
- Jim’s (Rex) beach police song that mentions an apple tree
- Connor’s heartbreaking whimpers as Tommy
- Neil (Max) not wanting to show his body in the ocean and his “Oh, yeah” in response to going to the beach by himself.
I love Neil, Jim, and Connor dearly. Listen to this episode.
