Don’t you sometimes want to get a way to a place where everybody knows your name?
That’s what the Somethings did this week as we take on another episode of THE END – did one of the historically beloved and remembered sitcoms hold up decades after it went off the air? How funny can dudes sitting at a bar really be?
Well hang out with PCR and Hatton, Mayday Malone, Carla, Cliff, Norm, and Woody as they talk about not just an episode, but a phenomenon in Cheers
Sure, it’s early, but we’re taking next month off – so we gotta get it in somewhere.
And since everyone is getting themselves all stuff prepared, we decided to hit a a movie that had a strange beginning, but has found its place as a Christmas Traditional for weirdos… it is the scariest Christmas Carol ever put to film – SCROOGED! (I heard an old lady had a heart attack)
So join in the festivities as the Somethings discuss whether this was a well-received holiday tradition (like cranberries in a can) – or the kind of thing you tolerate just because it’s the holidays (like hugging the weird aunt that always smells like cat pee)
It’s time to be visited by three ghosts and two Somethings, so you best change your ways…. Scrooged!
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!
