On occasion, there are months that have a few extra weeks… sometimes up to 5! This just happens to be one of these months, and since our New Year Party got lost in the shuffle of hard drives, we had the time to put together a little hang out party of just two – myself and Rob, relaxing, chatting about the show and catching up on a bunch of topics.
So settle down with us on this extra week of January, grab yourself some pretzels and see what happens when we forgo a topic to just do what two friends with microphones do.
Hatton’s back! This time he’s bringing old time Somethingcast Alum Podcast Rob, remember him?
We have some show updates as well as we take it to the ring to discuss Netflix’s and Jenji Kohen’s big summer party. Driving in a wood panel van straight into the 80’s with the big hair, big gimmicks, and big coke addictions… that’s right – it’s GLOW time!
So what do the boys think of the squared circle filled with the ladies and Marc Maron? Well you should settle in and find out.
This week, the Somethings had the pleasure to hang out with Kevin Gootee, a stand-up who is doing something pretty original on Amazon Prime.
Every episode features one or two stand-ups doing a set while Kevin and his panel talk about what they did right and what they did wrong. From constructive criticism to out and out wrecking, for a fan of comedy, it is a unique take on the artform.
If you haven’t seen it, the new season is going to be appearing any minute now… but until then, catch up with Seasons 1 – 4 and then go follow Kevin Gootee (@KevinGootee) or go checkout the site at Comics Watching Comics.
Last but not least – if you are a stand-up comic who wants to give it a shot.. first, go watch the show. Trust us, know what you are walking into. Then, submit your information to firstname.lastname@example.org – you must have been a working comic for the last three years, but if you think you got it… you go get it!
So after putting the Patreon on pause.
After our Anniversary.
After our 100th Episode.
How could we put icing on that cake?
Oh, we got ourselves a badass guest to hangout with for a little while. Who, you may ask? Why Ralph Garman, co-host of the Hollywood Babble-Onwith Kevin Smith, actor in a lot of stuff you’ve seen, as well as the host of one of our personal favorite shows, The Joe Schmo Show!
So settle in and enjoy the conversation, and do yourself a favor and follow @RalphGarman on Twitter and Instagram to continue following his adventures and all of the big life changes in store for him now that we’ve hijacked his brain. And be sure to look out for him on Seth MacFarlane’s new sci-fi show, The Orville.
The Somethings are coming to you straight from the borscht-belt with a selection of other people’s fine entertainment. You see, you don’t just become as funny as the Somethings are by not examining the craft of comedy. To be the geniuses that they know themselves to be (and then implicate you in the knowing since you keep listening) you have to know who is damn funny… so basically two jackasses with microphones are going to tell you who is better to listen to than they are. Aren’t they swell?
