Pat Baer Fights Wolves, Finds Love
Our story this week: Pat Baer, creeped out by an awkward drug party around an unfamiliar campfire, escapes into the forest along with the beautiful, straight-edge subject of his unspoken desire. But if there’s one thing that history teaches us, it’s this: journeys into dark forests produce narrative crisis points via confrontation with representations of the bestial self. Should have seen this one coming, Pat.
Pat Baer is an improvisor and all around great guy who has helped with the production of A Funny Thing since its very beginning. Thanks Pat! He also hosts 404ing it: Breaking Down the Internet, a surprisingly moving love song to all things online at the UCBeast theater. It is a great show, and if you like the internet (you do) then you should check it out.
Doug Mand (How I Met Your Mother, Doodie Calls) joins Craig and unknowingly watches the post-Columbine episode of “Hang Time.” Learn what a “groat” is and find out why it’s not OK to make fun of them. And listen as Doug discusses trying to be cool as a teenager by smoking incense by himself in the privacy of his bedroom.
Oh man, I cannot stop snort-laughing while listening to this episode. I love Grammies.
In this week’s episode, members of Grandma’s Ashes Lydia Hensler (Ladies Night), Dru Johnston (Bellevue), and Winston Noel (Hear Me Out) join Abra to find out what happens after hours at Petco, how to hang up a party line, and the status of Moses’ pants barn.
EPISODE 103: SUE COSTELLO
This week, Sara and Nikki are personally invited to a Taylor Swift gig out in Jersey and neither snow nor rain nor violent food poisoning will stay these girls from meeting Swift herself. Comic and birthday girl Sue Costello (@suecostello, The Fighter, TV everything) takes the ladies through her one-woman show I Wasn’t Trying To Be Funny for which she’s currently raising money to bring to a broader audience through Kickstarter (help her out!). The show covers Sue’s entire comedic career thus far, from the highs of being discovered at an elderly bringer show to the improbably unlucky lows of jealous mentors and hindering home runs, and how through it all she’s maintained her trademark candor and zeal.
In closing, Nikki implores you to watch Nikki & Sara LIVE on MTV Tuesday at 11pm/10c. Trust her, she’s an expert in these things.
