Marty returns after a brief depression-cation to get back in the ring with Drew Michael. Marty’s old buddy is in town and stops by to talk about all things depression, comedy & sex. Let’s podcast.
I talk about outer space, the unlikelihood of existence, innate cognitive dissonance, the power of marketing, and my two cents on the fucking Oscars.
I talk about not having anything to talk about, a lot of very silly riffs, fingering, squirting, and many things I have forgotten since recording.
I talk about mispronouncing words, why I choose to fail, getting "oooh"ed at an open mic, and the Jason Isbell concert.
I talk about annoying Jewish voices, ugly Russian voices, silly Blink-182 voices, a herpes dating website, and why Bill Cosby is like a serial killer.
Snow day! I talk about airplanes not crashing, why dating is a waste of time, the terrible no good very bad USPS, and more!
I talk about why I am both the best and the worst date, some Charlie Hebdo free speech dissemination, and why it's difficult to think what I think and also be in entertainment.
I talk about acquiring @drewmichael on Twitter, people's horrible topic suggestions, and Bill Cosby and why it's important to look at the bigger picture. Happy New Year!
I talk about The Interview and the phony Sony (!) free speech debate. Also lots more Fred Hampton and why we shouldn't be over that. [Recorded on an iPhone so the audio quality is low.]
I talk about how everyone embraces shitty qualities, getting herpes, why everyone is wrong about the CIA torture report bullshit and much more!
I talk about having nothing to talk about, new fun holiday ideas, the problem with rewarding the wrong qualities, the existential problem of being single, and the things that get in the way of LIFE.
I talk about not having anything to talk about, dating your parents, and a general mess of randomness.
I talk about people who eat suckers, my first trip to Vegas which was unlike anyone else's, and ISIS. Yes, I caved and fucking talked about ISIS.
I invent a new philosophical concept of time then I talk about sports bar idiocy, the commoditization of laughter, comedy audiences, and love vs. commerce. They're all hits!
I talk about seeing Mark Kozelek (Sun Kil Moon) in Newtown, CT and what it means to be a struggling artist and the feeling of being under-appreciated. I'm sure there's a sex joke in there for you simple-minded goblins.
We're back! I talk about... fuck, I forgot already. It was a good one. Oh, how I wish I were better at everything, the plague of self-doubt, questioning the value of certain processes when compared to more satisfying life experiences. You know, the "hits." It's all here. Get it!
No show this week. A few quick updates and plugs. I'm taking a brief summer break and I'll be back with new episodes soon! Get this update in your ears in the meantime.
I was a guest on a live taping of Pete Holmes' podcast, "You Made It Weird." It was a crazy fucking show and I had so much fun. Kumail Nanjiani, Emily Gordon, Cameron Esposito, Whitmer Thomas, and Brooks Wheelan were on as well and they were all hilarious.
