If Tig didn't move to New York, would hurricane Sandy be there? Discuss.

Sweet Holy Christ I don't think I have ever laughed as hard as I did during the first 10 minutes of this podcast. I second the request for a Tiny Calves, Beach Poop and The Wig T-shirt. Yes please.

A whole episode with just using the morning zoo voices would be amazing!

David's gentleman laugh trails behind as a very close second! Nothing makes me happier than to hear them laughing.

Seemed like Tunnel Guy was the only character missing also Aaron's morning zoo name should be morbot.

Loved the moment when they were talking about makeup in the 20's and David said, "Yeah, right after the Civil War they wanted to start feeling happy again." Nice.

Kyle insisting on getting Elvis in at the end was awesome. And completely warranted. Good lord, when will the guests stop offering their learned opinions so Kyle can engage in a ridiculous derailing character?

I know that sounds sarcastic but honestly Kyle's characters are the best. I also enjoyed the elderly Mrs. Trump, but I don't think Tig understands that you have to use the words "huge," "luxurious," "solid gold," and "the best" at least every five words when impersonating a Trump family member. Soon Mrs. Trump will rival the old-timey clown horn in Tig's hilarious cast of impersonations.

also "huge" is pronounced "ewuge" in Trump's case.

Aaron is silly. I know his birthday without even wanting to! He mentions it on his CD.

Just thought I'd mention, Elvis actually loved comic books, apparently his favorite was Captain Marvel Jr. So Kyle's impression was more on the nose than I think he realized! And I think the speculation of his cape and costumes being like a superhero are also right on, as it's thought that they were based on that love of Capt. Marvel Jr. (even his hair is similar).

This show is actually going to kill me someday. It's harmfully funny.
Return of Sascha Cohen! One of my personal favorite guests.

Aaron makes a Seinfeld-esque yelp at about 10:11 in response to Kyle saying that Jefferson was president. It is the best thing that has ever or will ever happen on the internet.
