Welcome to WEEK 4 of our epic October celebration! We sit down and interview special guest Comedian/Nerd Quiz Contestant/Rocky Horror shadow-caster and Lego enthusiast Craig Holcombe! 

We discusses his unique style of stand-up, his time at the DashCon fiasco, and his unhealthy (we mean passionate) obsession with Lego's.

Then we debate that universal burning question, "Zombies: Sex-yay or Nay?" After that Jason and Evan treat the perennial contestant of "Nerd Quiz Live" with a two-part HORROR QUIZ of our own!
Part 1 "Finish The Quote"
Part 2 "Celebrities Who Started in Horror!"

And we close with another bracket challenge, this time we ask the question, "Which Evil Clown from pop culture would make the best Patch Adams?"

This week Jason takes a break during his trip to The Charleston Comedy Festival to sit down with local Chucktown comedians Andy Rider and Deshawn Mason. We discuss Uber: The Comic book! We learn about something called "The Underwear Comedy Show". We talk magic, odd venues, and walking the room. We learn about Andy's childhood and how not every kid grows up on Disney movies, some of us had to watch the most terrifying cartoon movie ever. Then we discover how mimes were created and we find out that you shouldn't insult the MC at the strip club you're performing at because YOU WON'T WIN.

We then have way to much fun with the Bane voice. After that we realize that "The Family Circus" comic strip is full of Ghost Kids! Which leads into a discussion about Charlie Hebdo and why people can't take a joke.

We play a compilation of all the roast jokes about Bearded One Jason Underwood from The Alchemy Comedy Roast of Taylor Dorsett. https://twitter.com/taylor_ocd

Evan remembers an amazing dating story involving odd anime movie scenes and his dates parents.

And we close out with a series of scenes involving a very small Al Pacino, and a very giving Vin Diesel.
