Chris gives you advice for your annual performance review, surviving toxic holiday culture in your corporate job, and if you're going to be an axe murderer, choose your victims wisely.
Die Hard is a Christmas Movie.
Sam and fellow comic/new roomie/apparent boat captain, Brendan Olson, watched a gawd awful movie so you wouldn’t have to. But their review was almost as long as the run-time, so who are the real losers? Stop using aerosol cans. #OceansRising #RatingsFalling #ClimateChangeIsReal
Analicia runs late. Yale's not quite feeling the holidays...yet. The two share harrowing tales from the stage. Winter treats are rated and reviewed. Analicia gets a bit too attached to a borrowed vase. All this and more, including the independent comedy rundown!
Chris can't handle the Salvation Army bell ringers who block the ingress to every retail establishment he wants to go to this time of year. He spends a good part of the episode airing his grievances.
George H.W. Bush died this week. The general feeling ranges from "SAD" to "MEH". Chris points out that no president gets into heaven, and the Prince always had more power than the sitting president.
It's national cookie day. Eff cookies.
Yale has had it with the volume of complaints about "premature" holiday music. Analicia confesses her jelly donut addiction. The pair rehash their post-Turkey Day exploits. Yale presents a mini-editorial for no valid reason, just so he can make a stupid punch line. The two talk Route 66 and its role in Analicia's
family history. All this plus the weekly comedy rundown!
Chris gives a different take on Christmas classics like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, and How The Grinch Stole Christmas. He also made the mistake of listening to Christmas music on the way into the studio this morning.
Chris knows he needs a commercial, but isn't sure about what format to use. He makes sure you know how to celebrate the first Wednesday after Thanksgiving, more commonly known as Broke Wednesday. Chris also worries that he may get food poisoning.
Janet “Mamalicia” Kocher joins daughter Analicia in the studio for a rollicking, Yale-free show. Revel in tales of Thanksgiving in the casino, accounts of working the mic in the principal’s office of a Jefferson County educational institution, a heartstrings-pulling Comedy Rundown and so much Manilow.
Exclusively for the internet, Chris hides in a bathroom and record and records a special episode for the Thanksgiving holiday. Don't play Hallelujah on bar jukeboxes. What are you thankful for? Pie! And a lost tribe knows how to handle Jehovah's Witnesses.
Wind-Down Friday welcomes a new sponsor just in time for the holiday ice cream and coffee season. Our co-hosts explain how the wondrous Thanksgivings of their youth have transitioned over the years into a holiday spent in a casino and/or a drunken stupor. Yale agrees to lend his Black Friday seat to Analicia’s mom. Analicia makes a horrifying revelation with a happy ending. All this plus the independent comedy rundown!
Cold weather usually means that cuffing season is upon us. For Sam and guest Justin Luke, it's the official start of Sad *Neighbor* Season, and you can't survive these next few months without some emotional bangerz on your playlist. They also talk the success of the second annual Flyover Comedy Festival, and weather Cam'ron violated when he played a Puerto Rican in 'Paid In Full'. Book Justin on your shows, or give him a job.
Comedian and Christmas aficionado (Christmianado) Angela Smith joins Analicia and Yale to discuss her carefully strategized and curated holiday rituals, the magic of Hallmark Christmas movies, her random, purely contrarian distaste for soccer and her part in the kickoff to this year's Flyover Comedy Festival. Yale finds a literary avenue to plugging a sponsor. Analicia finds a gardening tool to be disturbingly hilarious All this plus the announcement of two holiday comedy spectaculars and,...
Sam kills Chris again, and takes over the show. Yolanda MizzUnderstood Brown (yes, say the whole thing) joins him to talk Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and cuffing season. Catch her being sued by her son on Judge Mathis Thursday at 3pm on ABC.
Chris has election advice for Missouri voters. Mostly, that advice is to not let Josh Hawley make it to the U.S. Senate. Seriously, Josh Hawley looks like he'd fuck cancer victims, in every sense of the word. Don't vote for him.
It's all we talk about today. Go vote. Unless you're going to vote for Josh Hawley. In that case, wait until tomorrow.
Seriously. Don't fucking vote for that guy.
Also, demons. We talk about demons, and rituals, and food, maybe? It got a little hazy at one point....
On this special Monday/Black Friday edition of Impolite Company's Wind-Down Friday, Yale defends holiday music in November, embraces his role as The Woke Curmudgeon and gives us a preview of the first night of the Flyover Comedy Festival's stand-up and sketch offerings. Analicia vigorously but cheerfully urges restraint on pre-Thanksgiving holiday tunes, and challenges Yale to a game of Shakespeare trivia. Meanwhile, Lyons Den host Sam Lyons texts in to furtively defend the honor of his time...
One night in August, Chris went to a party. The party kept going until it night became morning. The show doesn't stop just because of whiskey.
This is a cautionary tale. If you consume too much of the devil's party water, you're going to say some questionable things. Especially concerning the series finale of M*A*S*H.
So anyway, here's the episode that was "lost" to the general public.
