05 Sep Michael Yo and Willie Robertson & Kay Robertson
Adam welcomes comedian Michael Yo and they both begin with some industry wisdom they’ve gleaned along the way. Adam shares early career advice from Jimmy Kimmel. Both comedians talk about childhood and their upbringing, with Michael divulging how he’d try and avoid beatings from his father. Both Adam and Michael say they’ve tried to be better parents than what they experienced growing up. Hilarity ensues as they debate certain black vs white criminals where some NFL players are discussed as well as the Danny Masterson debacle.
Chris starts the news beginning with some controversy around NASA and the naming of an extraordinary new telescope, which despite a petition, NASA will not rename this new ‘James Webb Space Telescope’. Next, we find Kanye back in the news alongside his new ‘wife’, as they vacation in Italy, and Italians are up in arms over the provocative manner in which the two are dressing. Lastly, a lengthy discussion ensues concerning a new method being used for the death penalty in Alabama.
We finish the show with Duck Dynasty’s Willie Robertson and mom Kay Robertson to discuss their new movie and talk about the show that made them famous. Mom and son banter back and forth and discuss Kay’s early life with details on being a teen mom and how she obtained her high school diploma. Adam entertainingly informs everyone of the path to his diploma, and why being a ‘nerd’ wasn’t a good thing on a construction site.
