CP EP 203 - Hawley-ing Ass Out Of Congress

July 25, 2022

Been a couple weeks which means Jacques went on another trip with his sons (this one to Six Flags in NJ and Maryland and lunch in DC with work pals from Armed Forces Ent) and management went to another European city to see Duran Duran (London this time) … two weeks means more Jan 6thhearings and wholly shit are we all Fcked!! 

 

Hey … at least Steven Bannon is gonna be wearing a jumpsuit pretty soon.

 

Joe joined the podcast and while he doesn’t officially do a “self-indulgent theater” he sort of does and it’s brilliant.

 

Biff breaks down more crime clip from Japan … gosh what I wouldn’t give for those to be lead stories on US news!

 

Talk a little TV and some parenting tips and … a lot of giggling.  Not really … listen for a grown man giggling.

CP EP. 202 - Roadtrips and Treason

July 11, 2022

It’s been a few weeks since Biff and Jacques chatted … which means Jacques took another road trip (this time a drive to Chicago with his boys and dogs to surprise Management on her birthday) … it also means it’s been a few weeks so there’s been more mass shootings. USA USA USA

 

Course Japan isn’t without shootings … well one shooting … assassination of former Prime Minister Abe Shinzo with home made gun.

 

In more - “It’s Fine … Everything Is Fine” category (aka world is on fire) they chat Row V. Wade nightmare ruling, the Jan 6 treason trials and covid is the new herpes that won’t ever go away.

 

Biff talks Avs winning Cup, Jacques chats watching 9 Nick Cage movies in one night (sort of) as well as parenting tips and … stuff.

June 20, 2022

Let’s address the awful nightmare first … the missing 3-year-old Harry from Lowell last week that drowned … happened just houses away from Jacques.  Hug your kids.

 

Joe joins Biff and Jacques which always makes the show 614x better.  We talk the Carlin special and Ian Bagg special on Amazon Prime from a few years ago … Ian was a one time hockey pal of Biff and Jacques.  Great comic and really good hockey play … totally check it out!

 

We follow up from las show chatting the BBC show about folks who choose to disappear in Japan (as well as a fun crime Japan story from Biff)

 

Pretty long episode but each minute is as great as the last … just listen on 1.5 speed … it makes the medicine go down!

CP EP 200 - Fertilizers To Phoenix

June 6, 2022

After a couple years off (thanks Covid) Biff, Jacques and the FNH crew comprising the John Taylor Fertilizers Hockey Franchise Club LLC Inc returned to the annual Memorial Day Phoenix tournament.  And the one on-ice highlights has to be Jacques 2nd assist on the ONE goal the team (AST) scored last in game 3.  Off the ice … the highlights were pretty endless.  Jacques enjoyed the drive with Biff from LA and rooming with John… unknown if Biff and John feels the same.

 

Jacques’ week in LA including visits with former podcast guest Ronak and Renatezky as well as MANY visits to In & Out and Universal Studios!

 

Another week in the US means another mass shooting and looks like Jacques might have Biff convinced the GOP is a terrorist organization. 

 

Biff chats NHL Playoffs and funny crime in Japan.  Parenting tips, streaming reviews and much much more … well, more.

CP EP. 199 - Kids In The Hall Are Still Gods

May 23, 2022

After a couple weeks off, Biff Joe and Jacques are back.  After 30 years off … so are the Kids In The Hall. And their still Gods.  Season 6 is streaming now on Amazon Prime as is “Comedy Punks”, a 2-part gloves are off and tissue boxes are on documentary with and about the KITH.

 

Seems a dying and in Covid lock down Norm MacDonald left us all a going away present in form of a new special that will start airing in a few weeks … and now - two-part George Carlin documentary is on HMO Max!

 

Lots of great comedy to distract us for few hours from the nightmare the GOP Crime Syndicate is holding us hostage in … same week cheering the forthcoming SCOTUS over turning Row Vs … and simultaneously voting AGAINST the emergency to help get baby formula back to the store shelfs asap!  Clarence Thomas Wife tripling down on trying to overthrow the country (no, really, she is) and another horrible mass shooting in Buffalo by a proud white supremacist who targeted a supermarket in a predominantly black neighborhood.

 

Biff chats the 5 NHL games 7s played in a 30-hour span and crime in Japan.

 

Biff, Jacques and the FNH … John Taylor Fertilizer Hockey Franchise is off to Phoenix next week to play (for the first time in 3 years) their usual annual hockey tournament… they’re hoping to play well but NOT have to play in finals to be able to get out of AZ a day early.  Priorities.

CP EP 198 -Biff’s Morning Jog

May 2, 2022

We start of on a real somber not as Jacques chats the passing of college buddy/occasional band mate/amazing song writer/musician and one of the nicest guys you could ever meet, David Mirabella (front man and lead guitarist of The Rationales.) Dave was guest way back on CP (Ep. 7).  You’re missed and loved Dave. May the force be with you brother.

 

Biff chats his Batman like crime fighting skills as at 4am he chased off some thieves trying to saw off and steal car parts from his neighbor’s car!

 

Jacques chats seeing friend of the podcast Gene Dante and The Future Stars play with Death Metal Bee Gee’s cover band Tragedy.  Jacques brags (truly brags) handing with Joe and watching Arthur (a family viewing with Jacques sister and his 14 year old son) and then them watching Animal House!  Jealous?

 

Crime in Japan, Girl fight in GOP and Biff does a deep dive into his NHL playoff predictions and hopes!

April 25, 2022

Before Elon buys Twitter and ruins it for everyone … Biff and Jacques figured they’d chat their favorite twitter follows now!

 

They had a couple of the same on their list and a couple pretty interchangeable ones. 

 

This was a fun one to prep for … was NOT easy getting the list down to 10!

Sideshow # 86 - Gilbert … He Had A Hat

April 18, 2022

Joe and Jacques have ANOTHER bitter-sweet chat about yet ANOTHER comic they LOVE who BAMB … GONE.

 

The GREAT (now late) Gilbert Gottfried past last week and we’re gutted.  From Joe and Jacques’ early (maybe 1994) collaboration … Joe did a Gilbert impression that Jacques LOVES (Joe down plays it but it’s pretty great) and some of the best CP Self-Indulgent Theaters involved Joe’s Gilbert!

 

Joe from day one was a fan of Gilbert’s podcast … which serious was always good but sometimes depending on the guest … GREAT GREAT GREAT.

 

We HIGHLY suggest you fall down a Gilbert YouTube rabbit hole … gotta see the YOU FOOL – Hollywood Square clip, spend an hour watching Gilbert on Howard Stern and totally check out the 2017 documentary Gilbert.

 

It’s been a rough time losing so many great comics … this one really hit close to home.

April 11, 2022

Taping on Biff’s birthday they chat Biff’s birthday fishing story … THIS really is a good one.  Oscar’s suck and Grammy’s suck.  Will Smith slapped Chris Rock at Oscars … and Grammy’s slapped the times up movement giving Lewis CK an award … WTAF.

Hey despite the GOP pulling out all the racist and crazy cards they could … Judge Ketanji Brown is NOW the first black woman on the SCOTUS!!!!

Seems Covid is still a thing … seems Putin is still a major war criminal … and there is still crime in Japan … but don’t lose hope … there is still Moon Night, Ted Lasso and parenting tips on this weeks podcast!  You’re welcome world!

April 4, 2022

Actor, Front-Man, Writer … and over all good guy – Gene Dante chats with Joe, Biff and Jacques about his love of acting, writing … and Paul Lynde!

 

From his European touring roll in Rocky Horror, to his Bauer hockey commercial, to his band (Gene Dante and the Future Starlets) new double album “DL/Ux” – it was a real fun and funny talk.

 

Is Gene the hardest working man in show business … maybe … but he really works pretty fucking hard and we’re jacked to seeing his band play Friday April 29th at Sonia in Cambridge with world famous Tragedy!
