Adam opens the show with another Mike August story from the road.
Brad Williams is also in studio right at the top, and Adam tells him about his quest to find good deviled eggs. The gang also talks about how good poor people have it, and why you shouldn’t bother with card counting. Brad then talks to Adam about working with Fred Willard in the new Christopher Guest movie, ‘Mascots’, and Adam rants about people who don’t wipe their feet. After that, the guys take calls for a Thanksgiving themed round of Tales from the Cheap.
Gina opens the news talking about Mike Pence’s visit to the show, ‘Hamilton’. The guys also talk about model Gigi Hadid impersonating Melania Trump, and then they ask Caelan if he knows what Neapolitan ice cream is. From there they digress into a conversation about Spumoni and their favorite types of ice cream cones. Later, the guys talk about the Pope permitting priests to forgive abortions, and Adam complains about the car the Pope rides in. As the show wraps up, the guys talk about an upcoming labor strike at Chicago O’Hare airport, and the insane retail schedules for Black Friday.
