If you think Todd's twitter spam was bad, try following Norm Macdonald.

Todd nailed that add so hard. I'm so hungry for a hand-delivered, fancy-packaged, healthy snack-attack right now.

I am a HUGE Norm fan. It was a sad day when I unfollowed him. His twitter feed was just awful.

This is the second time I've heard Todd Glass saying that he is the actual writer of his book, and not the ghostwriter (the first time was on Comedy Bang Bang, I think).

I think it's pretty simple: if you didn't sit down and write down the actual words, and structured your writing (this is probably the most important), then you didn't write the book.

Yeah, he also talked about it on Norm's podcast.

M*A*S*H was really good for the first three seasons, while McLean Stevenson and Wayne Rogers were still on and the writers were not required to show us how sensitive and human everyone was at all times...there were scattered good episodes and bits in later episodes, but it got pretty dire, indeed (the only downside to the first four seasons was that the sexism and unintentional racism infrequently could get up the nose). The Mary Tyler Moore Show was great as long as you could take how everyone had to think Mary Richards walked on water, even while they were yelling at her (similar to the Alda ego trip in the latter half of M*A*S*H). Welcome Back, Kotter got real tired, real fast...like most of ABC's comedies. Dan Savage makes some fine points about the heterosexism of Barney Miller, the best of ABC's comedies in the '70s pretty much (maybe with The Odd Couple, amusingly enough), but I forgave BM a lot whenever Steve Landesberg was onscreen.

i love mr glass on other people's podcasts where he has to stick to a bit as it goes like with the naturebox "ad" on this episode, without resetting it over and over to try to get it perfect like he does on his show
i also like him on his show but structure can really help him sometimes. its like an author who starts selling millions of copies of whatever he writes so he can put out his vision without any editors, but ends up with several meandering messes. its very rare IMO that todd resets a bit on his podcast and it turns out funnier because of it
its his show though and he's the comedian with decades of experience not me, and its not like he's charging me by the minute for his podcast or anything, so i can go fly a kite
podcastsarewonderful.com: this week me and mike tyson talk about Hollywood Handbook episode 61 featuring Hayes Davenport, Sean Clements, and Pauly Shore in the first installment of the BAD BOYZ OF PODCASTING series. apologies are made to Kevin O’Brien.

"You think this guy was going to use the flashlight to finish off the bodies? Like, hey- this guy's close! This guy's got no legs. CLUNK!" I had to pause it and rewind it because I didn't hear anything for the next 30 seconds.

I made a clip of the Naturebox spot, you can listen here.

I just listened to this and had to pop in to mention possibly my favorite joke of the whole show, which no one there acknowledged and may not have even heard. When Jimmy was trying to guess the age of the celebrity that turned out to be Gary Cole, he asked "Is he a young guy? Is he 40, 48?" Killed me.

By recommendation from Greggy, I have come here from Episode 1521 of Never Not Funny, which happened to be my first NNF.

This episode ties in a lot with my first impressions of NNF and my early perception of the always-very-funny Jimmy Pardo.
In the more recent one I heard, I assumed the aggressive tone Jimmy was taking was mostly a combination of comfort established in being on his home turf and having the all-star, tip-top 1# podcast guest Paul F. Tompkins as a guest. More or less a bit, but with some genuine bite to it.(A bit has got to have bite!).
However, rage and aggressiveness plays a huge part in the proceedings of this episode by another gentleman whom I've always seen as a very kind and sweetly earnest dude, Todd Glass. It's a topic throughout the episode--- The anecdote about the guy 'laying on the horn', the complaint about the noise, Todd's spectacular Naturebox ad, the seemingly usual belting that Eliot gets, and even a very blunt discussion about getting upset and kindness. It would appear if there was any episode to better tackle this topic of 'angry' Pardo, this is it.
Regardless of intent, all those segments form a conversation about anger, each approaching it from different perspectives. The story and empathizing with the gridlocked driver while demonizing the horn honker highlights how petty these outbursts of rage can be, while conversely, when the podcast gets snipped and stopped concerning the compliant about the noise, they're understanding and somewhat apologetic. Todd's naturebox ad reels into the comedic nature of being critically upset and how funny it can be while later their ribbing at Eliot sanctions this kind of attitude as 'busting balls'.
I'm probably not the only one who has been surprised to find that the ever-cordial Jimmy Pardo has some aggression and can be quick(and incredibly proficient) at calling out someone as a jerk. He's not always nice, nor is the human incarnation of sunshine that is Todd Glass. They're both incredibly passionate performers and that's really their weapon as entertainers. However, this means when they feel upset, its not always able to be ignored or censored for the sake of being kind. In the same accord, that doesn't always mean they're going to be brutally honest because they feel obligated to, especially when it might be unnecessary.

It's impossible to be kind all the time and sometimes being angry can be funny. It's because we all can relate to it and sometimes its a very valid way to feel and express yourself. No two humans better illustrate this than Jimmy Pardo and Todd Glass in this episode save for Morrissey who sums this up very eloquently:

"It's so easy to laugh
It's so easy to hate
It takes strength to be gentle and kind"

So. Now where to? I'll take a recommendation for any podcast, any episode.
