Doing Lunch With Shelly

Posted in Comedy, Talk, Explicit by robandjoeshow on January 24th, 2017

Ben Collins from The Daily Beast joins the show to discuss his pivotal piece on the Keyser Soze of Comedy. The possibility of finding a documentary filmmaker to fully expand on this story is explored. The conversation is then graced by Alex Bell from Isle of Mann’s Manx Radio. Rob and Joe get the scoop on the tiny country’s history surrounding blood sports. They then try to plan a promotion that would gather all of Dan’s comedy enemies (and hopefully the world-traveler himself) for one big show on the island. Robby is reminded of an old feud while channel surfing, and Joe has an update on it four years later. Rob proposes a new way to include Chris Restivo on the show, and then has some good advice for all of the outspoken Trump detractors. Robby has new information about his college professor discussed on the previous episode, and Joe makes a connection when he learns the man’s name. Rob and Joe lose a patron over some of the premium content offered. Rob has booked a last-minute trip performing overseas.

#280 - Want S’more?

Posted in Comedy, Talk, Explicit by robandjoeshow on January 19th, 2017

Scott Apple continues to display his astounding lack of knowledge about anything in popular culture, but there just might be someone who knows as little about music. Scott also displays his inability to build a lightsaber that isn’t substandard. Robby is 'king' of the Bachelor fantasy league, but some have wondered if he was a 'queen'. People don't always get the comedy of Rob or Joe. Siri betrays Joe and makes an unauthorized call to someone in his contact list very early in the morning. Joe may have really hurt someone's feelings when he accidentally replied to the wrong text message. Rob has several instances where he must perform after acts that are impossible to follow. Rob is in the right place at the right time and sees Louis CK do fifteen minutes in a small club. While at the wolf sanctuary, some fellow visitors get testy over the offer of s'mores from Joe and Katie. Rob and Joe don’t like Arnold's new Celebrity Apprentice catch phrase, and new ones are considered for some hypothetical alternate hosts.

#279 - Comedy To the Death

Posted in Comedy, Talk, Explicit by robandjoeshow on January 11th, 2017

Gramps sends a shocking photo to Joe with no explanation. There are a lot of comedians in attendance when one of their own gets hitched, but Joe gets uncomfortable when they can seem to behave appropriately. When a feature in Forbes blows up in the face the “media’s favorite millennial”, Rob and Joe get interviewed to discuss it by a reporter uncovering the story behind the story. Joe gives his review of the book he received from Rob, and Scott Apple gives Joe the worst Christmas present ever. Rob is annoyed with Joe for procrastinating on the newest murder mystery script.

#278 - Gramps is The Instigator!

Posted in Comedy, Talk, Explicit by robandjoeshow on January 4th, 2017

The final Ravens postgame on 98 Rock for the season could have used Rob. Joe receives some equipment as a result to the show’s new revenue stream, but waits until just before show time to install and test it. Rob’s new year starts badly for the second year in a row. Die Laughing Productions does a show in Albany without Joe, and Rob once again struggles to fill his shoes with the pre-show duties. The conversations on these road gig carpools seem to always get weird. Rob thinks the Richie/Carey tour will suffer as a result of their new year’s eve performances on TV. Joe is taking a break from social media. A new story from Gramps doesn’t seem that great to Joe, but it does inspire him to tell a different one involving Robby as a kid. Dan Nainan may have scammed the press one too many times. Rob gets some backlash for his gift-giving. Two tragic deaths at the close of 2016 spawn some bad jokes. Joe was given an extension on his girlfriend’s ultimatum from last year. The Bachelor fantasy league is under way. Rob got a new Sony PlayStation and is frustrated with the new video games.
