"You’re not even a man. You’re like an early draft of a man, where they just sketched out a giant, mangled skeleton, but they didn’t have time to add details, like pigment or self-respect."
That one will always be my favorite.

Jake’s old pal Adam McKay stops by to chat about mixing up the Second City format with “Pinata Full of Bees,” the Bill Brasky SNL sketches, and the inspiration behind Anchorman.
Quite enjoying this conversation with Adam McKay. It’s them walking through some classic SNL sketches— I really want to see The Hulk Hogan Talk Show now but I can’t find it. (EDITED: It’s on Netflix!) I thought all the SNL sketches were on Yahoo but I can’t figure out how to work that thing. (They do have the Tina Fey Census Taker sketch which is one of the all-time greats)(but I can’t find Jack Handey’s Tales of Fraud and Malfeasance in Railroad Hiring Practices— that’s over here).
Paul Rust is one of the top 5 humans.
Paul Rust had this thing I saw him do live once— this was, like, 5-10 years ago, and I only saw it the one time at this show that started at midnight called the Tomorrow Show, so I only half-remember it, but for some reason it’s just stuck with me since. It was just this guy with a name like Party Boy, or Party Man or something, and he was just screaming about how much he likes parties, just silly party andrew wk stuff (did he have a bag of little pieces of bubble gum in it that he threw at the audience? He had a bag of something)— until things suddenly take a turn and it just got really, really dark and you realize that he liked parties because he was horribly sad (did he have a problem with his dad? i don’t even remember what it was). I don’t know why that character’s stuck with me but I just always, always, always like when a comedy character just gets really sad— I just find that so funny. Anything where a character cries (like, Bill Hader at the end of Remastering the Sting or whatever)… I like being allowed to laugh at people who are crying…? Is that normal? Feels normal…
Or I have another half-memory of that show him and Neal Campbell did at the UCB super-early on, where … I can’t even remember which of them it was, but one of them gets super-emotional and and is like, “Oh yeah? Well, I’m going to go to the fire-escape and play my saxophone!” Or something like that. And there’s 80’s sax music playing…? Man, I remember that being a really good show but that feels like forever ago. I haven’t gone to shows like that in too long…
So yeah, comedy shows from a million years ago that I half-remember! Wee!
Yes, you read that right: Eddie Pepitone freestyle rapping on nationally syndicated television with Colton Dunn as a hype man.
So, with that being said, watch MC Destructo’s latest appearance on Arsenio here.
