Never been much of a podcast-kind-of-guy.
Although I did always sort of enjoy AM Talk Radio (in a totally guilty-pleasure kind of way) so, once again, I’m a bit late to the party in discovering what could be the funniest G.D. podcast I’ve ever heard.
(Get it? Get the joke? I’ve only really listened to one podcast so I don’t have much to base this on.)
But I DO know funny when I hear it.
It’s called Uhh, Yeah Dude
And Gawd Dammit, Seth Romatelli and Jonathan Larroquette are the funniest pair of dudes I have heard together since…I don’t know… Chris Farley and David Spade? Vince Vaughn and Jon Faverau? Abbott and Costello?
Maybe more like Opie and Anthony if Opie and Anthony talked about intelligent topics rather than boobies and beer.
I was in my parents’ basement preparing to come home to fair-and-honest Harrisburg and decided to randomly download some podacsts. I wasn’t really in the mood for music but wanted something in my ears to drown the chatter of a train full of travelling holiday revelers with all of their coughing and texting and yapping and crying.
So naturally, I browsed the Comedy section of iTunes and discovered my happiest discovery in many moons.
You see, I like to laugh. But I’m far too cynical to really laugh hard much these days. Don’t get me wrong; I do see the humor in many situations but it’s more of a dark, bleak kind of humor.
Remember two sentences ago when I was bitching about the noisy, germ-spreading, whiney people on the train whom I wanted to block myself off from by listening to a podcast?
Well, I became the noisy douchebag sitting across the aisle who was laughing uncrontrollably at these two seemingly stoner-type dudes who, essentially, sit around and bullshit together for just about an hour once a week covering current events.
But they’re more like two just really funny guys who you probably know and listening to the show is like sitting at the bar with them as they go round for round – but instead of “the bar” going “round for round”, it’s more like being in a “living room” passing a “bong” back and forth.
It’s chock full of eff bombs. (Which I love) It’s chock full of sarcasm. (Which I adore) And it’s a nice change of pace to the normal hum-drum bullshit floating around the innerwebs and talk shows these days.
(If you do decide to check it out (which you totally should), pay attention to the cadence of how they say the eff word. I lose it every time they say it. It’s not like you’d normally sling that word. The emphasis is more on the “ck” than the “fu”.
So uhh, yeah dude. Go listen.
