Smile Hostage

Posted in Comedy, Talk, Explicit by robandjoeshow on December 29th, 2015

When Robby forgets to hit record on the first half-hour of the show, adjustments to the usual format must be made on the fly. Joe’s Christmas was filled with disappointment and awkwardness compared to Rob’s which was relatively uneventful. The overwhelming popularity of the of the most recent murder mystery created some additional family-related headaches for Joe. Robby announces that he will again participate in The Bachelor fantasy league from which he had previously been ejected for suspicion of cheating, and Rob and Joe decide to do their own mini-league for this season. The passing of Motörhead front man Lemmy Kilmister apparently completes and strange death trifecta. Chris Restivo is now bombarding Rob with recorded messages, hoping to have them played on the show. Rob and Joe consider candidates for the next “Listener of the Year”. When two women walk out on the murder mystery, its creators wear it as a badge of honor.

Tanning Your Junk

Posted in Comedy, Talk, Explicit by robandjoeshow on December 22nd, 2015

The best way to start your holidays, according to Rob and Joe, is by listening to episode #224 while your drive past all the Christmas lights in your neighborhood. The show gets rolling with props for Marcus’s Star Wars prediction and the show’s rankings for the week of the on-air fight. Restivo performs Joe’s rant from that show and everyone agrees that he actually did a great job. Not coincidentally, Joe give his interpretation of Chris’s vicious voicemail message (from the same episode) on stage, but with a twist. Rob is now even more eager to move after a neighbor knocked on their door to make an odd request. Rob launches into an interrogation, and Joe proclaims his innocence after he is practically named as the prime suspect in a felony investigation. Tommy Sinbazo shares his feelings on Star Wars: The Force Awakens (no spoilers). Joe miscalculates the amount of time he should spend in a tanning bed and his bad decision-making doesn’t end there. Steve Harvey blows it at the Miss Universe pageant, and Joe thinks this will be a boost to the comedian’s career.

Raking PTSD

Posted in Comedy, Talk, Explicit by robandjoeshow on December 15th, 2015

Rob and Joe follow-up on the fight between the Robinson brothers last week. Ultimately it seems that everyone would really prefer to limit Restivo’s participation in the show.

Rob is incredulous when his Cards Against Humanity answers are instantly dismissed at a recent get-together. Howard Stern is in the news and Rob and Joe have thoughts on his satellite radio contract, his career and his comments on podcasting.

Joe confesses that his ability to do some chores is hindered by childhood trauma. There are warning signs that Rob’s next gig for the troops overseas might be a lot more dangerous this time. Some predictions are made about the reaction to Star Wars: Episode VII.
