We did it, you guys! All of us! We got together and had a party and talked about John Cusack with slurred speech and danced and drank and watched Cusack movies all night long!

Thanks so much to everyone who came out last Thursday! We hope you all had fun. Thanks to DJ Josiah Hesse, Lisa Prank and SPELLS for providing kick-ass entertainment! If you want to see some photos, check out the previous post.

We’ll let you know when we put together another show. Cheers, y’all!

These Things matter Podcast Live From High Plains Comedy Festival

Episode SIXTY-NINE, DUDES!! Right? Right. We are so excited to bring to you our live show from the High Plains Comedy Festival on August 23rd in Denver, Colorado! Organized by friends of the show Adam-Cayton Holland and Andy Juett (plus sponsored by our favorite pizza company, Sexy Pizza), the 2-day fest was a mad house of awesome comedy, parties, mayhem and weed soda.

We could not have been happier to talk to our three guests, comedians Matt Braunger, Beth Stelling and Sean Patton (who fulfills the return-guest quotient for our return guest 2-month extravaganza). Our topic was Favorite Television Comedy Writers Rooms, and boy oh boy, we got into it. Not actually – it was more of a solid love-fest, your basic bro-down with two chicks – but! It was exciting nonetheless.

Thank you to ACH and Juett for having us, thanks to Sexy Pizza for sponsoring us, thanks to Mutiny Information Cafe for hosting us, thanks to our guests, and most importantly, thanks to YOU for attending/listening/giving us a review on iTunes/subscribing/liking us on Facebook/following us on Twitter/all of those things!

Hey, guys! How yah doin’? Nice to see yah.

In case you hadn’t heard, last Friday was a pretty big deal for us. We had our 2nd live recording at the High Plains Comedy Festival here in Denver! The episode will be out tomorrow, but in the meantime, here are some awesome pics taken by our awesome audience members – Courtney Brass, Matt Bush, Joyce Jasurda, Chris Charpentier and festival co-organizer Andy Juett! Thanks so much to everyone who came out – it was so rad to see you all there. And thank you so much to our guests Matt Braunger, Beth Stelling and Sean Patton!

We went to The Fine Gentleman’s Club’s Too Much Funstival and all we got was this lousy podcast!

Okay, not it’s not lousy… it’s not lousy at all! In fact it features San Francisco comic David Gborie, Bree Davies from Westword and Night of Joy, and the loveable friend of the show Sam Tallent, plus music by Fiction is Fun! Holy cats!
