Living On A Edge! Ben Schwartz just might be the Jeremy Lin of comedy: He comes from humble beginnings, he's worked super hard to get where he is now, and he is absolutely killing it right now! Writing movies, stealing scenes on Parks and Recreation and House of Lies and destroying audiences every week at the UCB Theatre, Ben Schwartz is making it happen and we loved him so much we recorded with him two weeks in a row! We also get our second Weekly Wahlberg and a visit from the beloved Racist Vin Scully. It's the kind of episode you'll want to inappropriately massage without permission!

Ben was a delight; I hope he becomes a regular guest on the calming shores. It was great to hear from Racist Vin Scully again, and I am absolutely loving these Mark Wahlberg voice mails!

"Pickled Hamm", not "Drunk Hamm".

I would have loved to hear Ben Schwartz interact with Racist Vin Scully. He's always great with racist characters.

Where are all the Sklarbro Country comments? I just finished this episode and it was one of the best ever. Are you out there? I know you are listening, I see the logs from the server!

Here is one just for CEO Jeff. Sorry, we were all busy grabbing piggy back rides.

I'm too busy buying stuff off Amazon through the links to make comments

The Morgana take was awesome.

Rochester Knighthawks play in the NLL www.nll.com

Racist Vin Scully was on fire this episode.

Sorry, Jeff. I was on a bender with Brad Marchand. Been chugging water ketchup to sober up.

I am a Hoosier fan!!!! Watford's shot against Kentucky was one of the best moments of my life. After all the suffering this program went through, this was great to see. Goosebumps every time! Long live the WatShot!

I am proud to say I went to a Shenanigan's Bar and Grill when visiting Tallahassee. Of course we went ironically because of the Super Troopers reference. Alas, according to Yelp, the place has since closed down.

Quick research shows that the St. Louis area itself is home to a great Shenanigans franchise - http://www.shenanigansinfo.com/

There has been a Shenanigans bar in Eau Claire, WI (home of Bon Iver) for years.

Oh boy! Another thread for me to gush about Ben Schwartz in!
seriously... I just want him to be a permanent guest on every show okay?

I really liked the way the water in the ketchup as an example of parents stretching a dollar just came back to bite him over and over and over. Every time he was like, "haha nooo. haha but really." killed me.

Kinda bummed Jeremy Lin didn't punch any babies to make this podcast an amazing prophecy. So selfish.

There's also a Shenanigans in Huntsville, TX. It's an atrocious, sleazy bar in a college town. Many of the students & locals refer to it as "She-nasty's" with good reason.
