At the top of the show, Bald Bryan tells Adam how having a baby has supercharged his Christmas experience. Adam then rants about people who fight the ‘war against Christmas’, and talks to Gina about some interesting comedy facts. The guys also watch an awkward video from the charity event Adam attended a couple weeks ago, and Adam brings both Jimmy O. Yang and Matt Atchity to the studio. Adam chats with Jimmy about his role in the new film ‘Patriots Day’. The gang then discusses the Boston Marathon bombing, and how great the film really is. Before the break, Matt Atchity hosts a Christmas-themed round of the Rotten Tomatoes Game.
Kliph Nesteroff is in studio next, and Adam asks him about his encyclopedic knowledge of comedy. Kliph share some interesting facts about everything from the mafia roots of standup comedy, to behind the scenes tidbits of Dane Cook in Canada. He goes on to list great comedians you’ve never heard of, as well as how comedy has evolved through the decades. Next up, Gina reads news stories about The Barbie Movie, and a petition to get Donald Trump to appoint a porn star as an ambassador. The guys also discuss the upcoming college playoffs, and Adam tells a story about Sonny not understanding his sarcasm. As the show wraps up, the guys talk about a pardoned 100-year-old lobster.
