13 Oct Kumail Nanjiani
Today’s guest hosts a podcast about video games, and Adam jokes about a recent experience he had filming a video game commercial. He then talks about the problems with contemporary strip clubs, and the guys reflect on some of the better strip club bands. Alison also reads part of Rolling Stones’ Top 10 Worst Songs of the 80s, and talks about the latest Johnny Depp project.
Comedian Kumail Nanjiani then joins the podcast, and Adam asks him about being born and raised in Pakistan. They also discuss the recent explosion of Middle Eastern comics, and Kumail talks about his journey to Iowa to attend college. The group then asks Kumail about some of the Muslim practices he was raised to follow, and Adam complains about people trying to follow their dreams.
Returning to the news, Seth MacFarlane was recently on Piers Morgan to discuss reactions to the old writers strike. Adam was coincidentally on the phone with Seth just earlier today, and recalls the conversation they had about animators not understanding the jokes they are writing. Alison wraps the news with stories about a guy arrested for kiddie porn after burglars tipped police, and a new unicycling world record that was set.
