Show Summary

Adam opens the show complaining about a last minute line-up switch at his performance over the weekend. He also talks about Natalia’s ice skating performance, and emphasizes the importance of pushing yourself and having butterflies in your stomach. Dave Dameshek is also in studio, and the guys joke about a senior circuit for boxing. Adam then brings actor Rhys Darby into the studio, and the guys talk the New Zealand military, rowdy standup crowds, and integrating sound effects into your comedy. Bald Bryan then reviews the new Captain American film. Dave Dameshek returns as Rhys slips out, and the gang talks more about superhero politics. Shek then reveals the Creep of the Week, and talks about a chance encounter with Jack Silver at the Superbowl. As the show wraps up, Alison reads news stories about Adam getting the field goal posts raised, and violence in Isla Vista.
