My Friends Need A Role Model

Comedy Podcasts >

We all have those friends that talk a good game but really ain’t about shit. Those guys need some guidance. They need a role model. In comes Dan, a filmmaker, comedy writer, and quiet observer of WTF is happening in the world around him. He has worked alongside some of the industry’s leading creatives — we’ll save the name dropping for the actual podcast. Tuge is a rapper and social media personality (AKA Fat Bible). Though not a household name yet, he has been involved in the NYC rap scene for years — he was cosigned by Jay Z, worked with Busta Rhymes, French Montana (OK, gotta name drop a little — fuck you, it sounds cool. And it’s true!). Together, they discuss everything from Hip-Hop to Comedy to… things they probably have no business discussing — never failing to insert a dick joke where most inappropriate. Political correctness is a term they’ve merely Googled. Once. They are your role models — though some might wonder why.
