#448 Mother Of The Year with Ms. Pat, Bob Saget, Rich Vos and Robert Kelly

por Ari Shaffir

We got a whopper! Comedian and mom Ms Pat join comedian and America’s dad Bob Saget, comedian and dad Rich Vos, comedian and father of a son who loves me more than him Robert Kelly, and fatherless multi-time abortionist, me, as they talk about what it’s like to have and raise a child. We cover such important topics as when to beat your children (Pat and I agree on this one but I probably say to do it more than she says), the hemorrhoids women get during childbirth (I am a mother in this way), and what it’s like at Ms. Pat’s house with all her lesbo and hetero kids running around. Saget and I had both been over there. I got crushed at spades by her daughter and Bob had narrowly escaped getting beaten up after being mistaken for a banker. 

This was recorded live at Skankfest South, the greatest comedy festival on the earthly planet. It is a pure expression of the joy of live comedy. Get tickets to next year’s event. I won’t be there.

Big announcement of how I beat covid during the intro. And stay tuned for the outro where I break down what a jerk Dumbledore was to Harry Potter and how much I wanted to beat on the fans at Universal Studios. 

I think this episode finally helped me figure out how to properly do a live episode of Skeptic Tank. It’s gonna be a fun, lighthearted topic, and I have to get out of the way of the other comics and just let them go off. My job on these is as a producer and I’ll just snipe away a little ala Mark Normand.

#447 From Rogan to La Grange with Shane Gillis and Mark Normand

por Ari Shaffir

Comedian Shane Gillis and Comedian Mark Normand take a ride with me, known child abductor, further and further away from the liberal safety of Austin and closer and closer to the sexy dangers of La Grange. 

We talk about our appearance on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast the day before as well as above ground pools, the Drake burn rap, Shane’s disgust that he’s even doing this, my terrible driving, Shane’s horrible fat fat fat body, my excellent shape for such a young man, and Mark just sits in the back and fires shots and butt trumpet songs at the front seat like a true American sniper.

#446 Swipe Right If You're Horny with Jared Freid

por Ari Shaffir

Modern love guru Jared Freid talks to me, a renowned late pull outer, about the dating scene, what can be improved on the apps, his successes, and failures with romance, and his hatred of charcuterie boards.

I go off during the intro about my own sexual mishaps with Tinder and why these dating apps are worse for society than a billion nose jobs.

#445 My Daddy Was A Mobster with Anthony DeVito

#444 Rehab with Chloe LaBranche

por Ari Shaffir

Recovering coke enthusiast and comedian Chloe LaBranche tells me about all her many trips to rehab. This one was WILD. So many great stories from Chloe about a world that’s waaaay interesting and for some reason never really gets talked about too much. At 16 Chloe lived cooler than I do right now. I'm a dork. Your podcast host is a dork compared to this lady. It was a really fun episode by someone who’s willing to share everything without worried about being judged, which is everybody’s favorite type of podcast host.

I go over the Chappelle/Netflix situation in the intro. Finally, a network executive has put into words that standup comedy is an art form and shouldn’t be regulated by anyone. Let’s hope this creates a new standard and allows all network execs to follow the amazing lead of Ted Sorandos and just leaves us alone to agitate some while entertaining the people who sign up to be entertained. Everybody else can take your anti-art stance and move into your place alongside the Taliban as they blow up antiquities. Because that’s the side they’re on. They’re on the side of getting rid of art and we’re on the side of enjoying art. Which side do you want to be on?

#443 Can I Get A Witness with Doug Smith

por Ari Shaffir

Former Jehovah’s Witness Doug Smith and I talk about the Jehovahs. They. Are. Weird. Doug got raised in it when his mom decided some guy at her front door had great points. Parents never run it by their kids when they decide to join some cult. They always just sign everybody up for it without even a chance to weigh in. Anyway, it was a funny discussion of one of the world’s most interesting sects of Christianity. I guess those snake handlers might have them beat. And the Shakers. Did you know the Shakers let their prepubescent boys practice pulling out on post-menopausal women? Also, they made great furniture. So I guess top 5 of weird Christians would be Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, Shakers, Snake handlers, and the Amish. Damn. That gives me 4 ideas for new podcasts.

#442 Summers End with Mat Edgar and Ryan O'Neill

por Ari Shaffir

Mat Edgar, Ryan O'Neill, and I talked about our adventure in the woods for the final day of the greatest summer of my life. We found one of the coolest, most remote, wildernessy, beautiful, amazing, relaxing places I’ve ever stayed at. I wish I could’ve taken you all with me. But it’d be weird if I did. Mostly because there wouldn’t have been enough Raniers to go around. But also the smell of poop would’ve been overwhelming. Counterpoint, though. Maybe I could’ve pooped on someone’s poop. Either way, I’m taking you there if you close your eyes and use your imagination. This is the way I share my experiences with you. And this was an amazing one. I already want to go back.

This summer lasted about 19 months for me this year. So I was sad to see it go. But it also made me remember all the great times I had. The beautiful sunsets I witnessed. The intro was actually kind of emotional for me. It really makes me want to get lost again. Just go live out my days on a beach. But… I got jokes about child death to tell to midwestern drunks. See you next week!

#440 Avoiding The Conversation with Yannis Pappas

por Ari Shaffir

Yannis Pappas came over to my house to talk about the greatest baseball game ever attended. But it turns out I'm a terrible podcast host and as much as Yannis tried to get to the topic we agreed on, I just kept missing the hints. So this ended up just being two friends joking around for 3 hours. I mean, you’d think after 10 years this guy would have learned how not to do this. Just real rookie stuff dude. Totally unprofessional.

#439 Wrecks In Effects with John Hastings

por Ari Shaffir

John Hastings and I talk about car accidents on a fun episode of Skeptic Tank. John has been in a dozen accidents so he’s got a lot of experience. And I have hit and run over 34 people in my life, many of those resulted in fatalities. So I can’t quite fully join in because of an antiquated statute of limitations rule in the state many of these “crimes” took place, but I've still got some stories left over.

#438 Six Months Of Hating Men with Annie Lederman

#437 When The Store Had Balls with Eleanor Kerrigan

por Ari Shaffir

Eleanor Kerrigan comes over to talk about the glory days of the Comedy Store. Eleanor and Ari were employees of the Store together at the turn of the century. That sounds weird but it’s true. Are we old? Am I old? Is the only thing keeping me young a steady flow of mind-altering substances and laughs from live audiences? Or is it just the general utter lack of responsibility? My friends from high school look like you should call them sir. I look like a guy you’d find sleeping on your lawn on a weekday.

Anyway, Eleanor and Ari talk about our favorite time at the Comedy Store. Back in between when it was famous in the ’80s and when it was famous again in the 2010s. It was dark in those tweener years. Dark and vicious. That’s when I got to the Store. When nobody in LA gave a fuck about that place. Literally, agents and managers were told by their companies to not go there. Crowds were sparse. Really really sparse. Sometimes we couldn't even get enough customers to start the show. And it was a breeding ground for fun. For wild nights. For mayhem.

So come along with Ari and Eleanor. Two paid regulars who started as non-comedy employees. And listen to some amazing tales of a time and a place long gone. Back when the Store was the place that made me. When the Store had its balls.

#436 Breastfeeding For Adults with Greg Fitzsimmons

por Ari Shaffir

Greg Fitzsimmons and Ari Shaffir go on a deep dive into forbidden acts of love in this public Patreon episode of Ari Shaffir’s Skeptic Tank.

The boys, victims of generational inbreeding of different styles, take Patreon submitted stories and questions about trouble with the law which leads them down the taboo road of adult breastfeeding. It’s a very special episode of Ari’s podcast and one which will go down in history as the reason neither of these overgrown children will be allowed into heaven.

#435 Cockfighter with Rojo Perez

por Ari Shaffir

Standup comedian and retired rooster fighter Rojo Perez sits down with Standup comedian and rooster fight enthusiast Ari Shaffir to talk about cockfighting. Futu Manu in Tetum. Pelea De Gallos in Spanish. Probably some other names in other languages.

Rojo entered his pet into one when he was a small boy in Puerto Rico. Too young to be doing stuff like that. Ari went to his when he was 43 in Timor Leste. Rojo Perez is now a small man so he has distance and age to help him look back on his cockfighting experience. And Ari Shaffir is about the same age but far more bald.

You guys should see it. They're siiiiiiick. So much fun. And beautiful. And it really brings the community together.

#434 Just A Little Bit More Than The Law Will Allow with Steve Rannazzisi

por Ari Shaffir

Star of the League, shoplifter, and standup comedian Steve Rannazzisi talks to tagged stealer of Netflix passwords, and standup comedian Ari Shaffir about breaking the law.

These two friends of 20 years riff on Patreon submitted stories of run-ins with the police. There’s a great story about eluding military police. It’s part of a series called “Arresting Content” that Ari usually does as one of his selections on patreon.com/AriShaffir.

Once every month or two the Skeptic Tank is having one of these Patreon-style podcasts for free for the general listener. It’s an excuse to have some stupid fun instead of getting caught up all the time with a theme. You gotta let loose sometimes!

Make sure to submit your own stories or your friend’s stories of run-ins with the law to patreon.com/AriShaffir. There’s also a “General Mail Bag" where you can submit topics, ridiculous would you rathers, stories, and news stories for Ari and sometimes guests to riff on, and a “Dear Ari” section where you can submit sex and dating advice questions or stories of sexual woes.

Break the law whenever you can get away with it, young students. The law is not for you to follow. The law is for them to enforce. Make them work for their money.

#433 Anorexics Have Sick Diet Tips with Maddy Smith

por Ari Shaffir

Former fatty and current standup comedian Ari Shaffir talks to world-renowned weight fluctuator and comedian Maddy Smith about her massive weight gains and losses and then gains again and then losses and then pass outs and then weight gains and then anorexia and then back to normal. 

Nobody gives better weight loss tips than anorexics and Maddy has some great advice if you’re trying to shed a few pounds. I mean, don’t be anorexic, but also definitely do listen to their ideas on weight loss because obviously. 

Ari is of Semitic heritage so his reaction to the sun in this video is massively more comfortable than the Irish and melting Maddy.

#432 Bark Like A Doggie With Luis J. Gomez

por Ari Shaffir

Comedian and homosexual child predator Luis Gomez talks to pot-stirrer and comedian Ari Shaffir about his old days selling comedy tickets to classless tourists in Times Square. The stories were WILD. Stories of sex and violence and an early Kurt Metzger.

The podcast starts inside and then moves outdoors to Times Square to try and find some of these hustlers still working the beat. Plus Luis tries to make some sales himself to these idiots and even makes one.

If this doesn’t want to make you go to Skankfest November 4-7 (that’s right, they’re announcing more programming for the 4th) I don’t know what will. Maybe you suck and you don’t like great comedy. Or good comedy at least. The point is, Luis is homosexual. The whole comedy scene knows it and they just go on as if it’s nothing and we shouldn’t warn the gays that he’s coming for their butts.

#431 Edibles: This Is How Those Stories Start with Mike Cannon and Brendan Sagalow

por Ari Shaffir

Space Cakes, Gummies, Brownies, chocolates, and the legendarily deadly Banana Bread. Comedian Brendan’s Sagalow and standup comedian Mile Cannon talk to standup comedian and creator of This is Not Happening Ari Shaffir about the dark arts of the baking world. It was a fun podcast about edible marijuana. You’ll be laughing the whole time.

Ari has been friends with the true dose king Joey Díaz for over 20 years so you know Ari has accidentally gotten bonked on edibles far more than the average person has ever even taken them.

The intro is full of a couple of good UFC on edibles stories. And the outro has a good story about acid at a UFC in one of the very few moments where Joe Rogan was jealous of us.

Standup comedian Stavros Halkias and former friend of Bert Kreischer’s wife Ari Shaffir answer Patron submitted questions about wild sex, lame friends, and partners who pork out.

#429 Anxiety Ridden Time Bomb of Self Loathing with Big Jay Oakerson

por Ari Shaffir

Standup comedian and host of The Bonfire and Legion of Skanks (in that order) Big Jay Oakerson talks about his struggle with anxiety disorder with comedian and host of nothing Ari Shaffir. Jay really went through it, man. He was fine and then one afternoon, he wasn’t. He couldn’t breathe, he couldn’t think straight, and the walls started crashing in. Ari has always been intrigued by mental disorders and this is the first time he has been able to really take a deep dive into anxiety. It was a very revealing and interesting discussion.

Check out Big Jay Oakerson every week on the Legion of Skanks podcast. Ari Shaffir is the President of that podcast. Shane Gillis is the Vice President. Big Jay holds no office.

#428 Crazy Latin Chick with Kim Congdon

por Ari Shaffir

Comedian Kim Congdon is fucking nuts. Standup comedian and your host Ari Shaffir sits down with this crazy Chonga to discuss the origins of the stereotype of the fiery Latin woman and how wild and fun it can be to observe her in action. She has always frightened me with her crazy Puerto Rican-style rage. The intro is live from the Mexico City Central Parque de Perros. Viva Puerto Ricas!

#427 You're Fired with Graham Kay

por Ari Shaffir

Comedian Graham Kay has been fired more than anyone on Earth. Stand-up comedian Ari Shaffir, fresh off not appearing on the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast for two years and before that losing his own show 'This Is Not Happening,' now sits down with Graham to discuss the many times he’s been fired.

The intro covers some of Ari’s own firings even though he left off getting fired from his own stupid show that he’s just realizing now would’ve been a solid thing to talk about instead of the same Domino’s story he’s told like 80 times already. Although, to be fair, he wasn't exactly fired from that show as much as blackmailed and forced to step aside. Plus stay tuned for the outro where Ari also profits off another comedian’s hard work.

#423 Pinc Louds Saved Our Summer

por Ari Shaffir

Lead singer of Pinc Louds, Claudi, sat down with standup comedian  @Ari Shaffir in Tompkins Square Park NYC to talk about busking and street performing in general. The summer could have gone in two directions. We could have shut ourselves in, and given into the gloom and doom of the news, or we could've gotten out there and taken back our city. And Pinc Louds were among the many outsider artists who took charge and said "We're not going down without a fight." That fight involved socially distanced mosh pits and meetups in the park to watch some actual live music. We could've lost this summer, but at least in the East Village of New York City, Pinc Louds saved it. Pinc Louds saved our summer.

Podcaster Ari Shaffir interviews Claudi of Pinc Louds about one of the most interesting summers in New York City's history.

#422 Chinese Circus Freak with Andrea Jones-Rooy

por Ari Shaffir

Comedian and Political Scientist Andrea Jones-Rooy came over to talk to standup comedian  @Ari Shaffir about her time being a circus performer in Shanghai, China. That is correct. It’s one of the more interesting episodes of Ari Shaffir’s Skeptic Tank you’re ever going to hear.

Andrea made me miss Shanghai. Even though I’m traveling right now, this podcast made me have wanderlust. She made me homesick for being away from home. And what a story!

Andrea Jones-Rooy got into circus performing in one of the wildest cities in the world, Shanghai. I did the intro in a river tributary in South America. It’s a podcast that’s gonna make you want to leave. Wherever you are, you’re going to want to leave.

#421 There's No Glory Holes For Women with Ian Fidance

por Ari Shaffir

Ian Fidance and I took a drive down to New Jersey and talked and laughed about his weird level of sexuality. He’s got some unique views on sex and love and whether or not he’s gay. I assumed he was at least bi but he doesn’t agree. 

It’s a fun driving episode that I’m gonna do more of. I think the last one I did like this was with Duncan Trussell talking about Buddhism. Solid way to multitask while putting other drivers and pedestrians in grave danger.

#419: "Stay in Your Lane" w/ Nate Bargatze

por Ari Shaffir

My guest today Nate Bargatze and I are talking about Hollywood, and its pontifical actors who can’t seem to stop gabbing. They give us their opinions constantly, all day long, and most of the time without doing any research or taking the time to educate themselves beforehand. Or it's the self-important cause that they’re shoving in your face. But a lot of people are struggling, and Hollywood just keeps talking down to you. It’s infuriating, and we can’t stand it or them.

Us comics, on the other hand, like to stay in our lane. We try to tell jokes, make you laugh. Not telling you how to live or what the deal is with this or that. And Nate does just that. His output & the level that he’s hitting on stage is amazing. He crushes it every time.  An interesting thing about his stand-up, which has nothing to do with his success — is that he’s incredibly clean. But you wouldn’t necessarily notice it unless it’s pointed out. You can’t go wrong with his stuff. You will go wrong with my stuff. You don’t have to pause his specials when your dad walks in. That's 3 specials you can watch with your family, including his new one that is available now! 

His brand new special "The Greatest Average American" is available and streaming on Netflix today. He literally is the greatest average American. You won’t hear any thoughts on social justice, how to live your life, who to vote for, or what church to go to. You will, however, laugh the entire time.  Watch 'The Greatest Average American' on Netflix is a Joke TODAY!

The Spiritual Healer w/ Bonnie Willow

por Ari Shaffir

Bonnie Willow is a super interesting woman I met in a hostel in the Andes. She is a Reiki Master and Inter-Faith Minister. Bonnie also runs a school, The School of Peace. I don’t even know how to describe it. It's about spirituality. And about energy healing, cleaning your insides. We sat in the setting sun and talked about meditation, consciousness, and a lot of other really heady stuff that I, standup comedian  @Ari Shaffir, have tons of trouble wrapping my head around.

I know a lot of this is going to sound like hocus pocus to much of my audience. But for those of you who get a spark out of what we were talking about, I encourage you to reach out to Bonnie to ask her whatever you want or just to tell her you enjoyed the conversation.

It was a fascinating talk and I’m lucky that my travels put me in contact with such unique people.

#417: "You're Gay" w/ Matteo Lane

por Ari Shaffir

Standup Comedian Matteo Lane comes on Ari Shaffir’s Skeptic Tank this week to tell me all about gay culture. It’s FASCINATING. And it’s changed so much since I first discovered gays back in college.

Matteo Lane is one of the most interesting and rational people to talk to at the back table of the Comedy Cellar and I’m glad to finally get him on the podcast. We talked about Prep, blasting loads into butts, Grinder, cheating, and anything else I could think of to ask him about what it’s like being gay these days. Such a fun one.

#416: "Serious as a Heart Attack" w/ Keith Robinson

por Ari Shaffir

Standup comedian Keith Robinson joins standup comedian Ari Shaffir this week to tell me about his stroke. I had a lot of questions. And Keith was forthcoming and hilarious. My favorite kind of guest.

Keith is one of the most giving comedians on the planet. You can trace tons of great comics who point to him as one of the biggest influences on their careers and their lives. He looks out for young comedians, especially the ones from Philadelphia. It really makes me want to work harder to help younger comics. And I already do plenty. But Keith Robinson makes me want to do even more.

#415: Baby Skeletons w/ Adrienne Iapalucci

por Ari Shaffir

Donate to Adrienne on Paypal

Donate to Adrienne on Venmo

We’re trying something different this week. I, Ari Shaffir, am bringing you an entire album of one of my favorite comedians in the world. For free.

Adrienne Iapalucci has been opening for me for the last couple years. Anyone who saw my Jew hour and thought, “Fuck, that lady was dark” knows what I’m talking about. You know why I refer to her as “The Dark Queen.” And that’s what she is. Standup comedian Adrienne Iapalucci is a cold-blooded dark joke writer. Following her every night forced me to improve my punchlines. I’m not exaggerating. She’s that good. If you saw her open for me, you know I’m right.

This pandemic has hit her really hard, though. She was about to start headlining so much that she wasn’t going to be available to me and my crowds any more. And then this virus changed everything. It took away our ability to perform. There’s no more income. She’s seriously looking for day jobs and wondering how she’s going to pay her rent.

And now she’s got a new album out called “Baby Skeletons” that she recorded before the pandemic. So here’s what we’re going to try. I’m letting you hear it for free. And I want you to give Adrienne what you think that was worth to you. If I were you, I’d start with $1 before you even listen to it. Because any album is worth that much. But then once you’ve heard it, I think you’ll agree it’s worth a lot more. And I understand that not everybody is in the same financial position as everybody else. So maybe you can only spare $7.00. Or maybe you’re doing great and you can spare a 20 or a 50. You gotta decide for yourself how much you laughed at what took her years to make and how much you want to support comics like this putting out their own material. Show this podcast to your friends and tell them to support her, too.

I do this kind of thing for the Edinburgh Comedy Festival. The richer people end up paying more. The poorer people end up paying less. And overall I make enough money to justify me going out there to Scotland for a month. Enough that I can justify going out there. More than I made in a month of road gigs 10 years ago. And more than Adrienne makes now on the road. But the coolest part of it for me was how the poor college kids and the adults with real jobs could all come together to enjoy something they all liked; my degenerate comedy. After the shows, I would stand in the back with a bucket. And people would toss in whatever they had. When I was off, I definitely felt that in the bucket. But no matter what people gave me, it was cool to have them say thank you as they passed, and know that no matter what they put in there, they were putting it in because they wanted to AFTER knowing what they had gotten in terms of the show I put on.

So that’s what we’re doing with Adrienne. All the money you Venmo her or Paypal her will go directly to her. If she makes enough, she can use the money to film her next special.

Adrienne is an introverted joke writer. And the standup she does end up doing on big platforms gets censored to hell. That Parkland joke was the number one joke of 2018. Most NY comics agreed with that. And they wouldn’t even let her do it on a dirty comedy on Netflix. That’s the state we’re in for standup. If she was as big as Dave Chappelle or Bill Burr it wouldn’t have been a problem. So you guys get to hear it here instead.

You gotta make the world into what you want it to be by supporting that vision with your dollars.
