Today on the "needs to have a name asap show" Danny Lobell and Justy Dodge argue over the most important meal of the day. Kevin Allison of the RISK podcast drops by to talk about boot licking, cigarette eating, and rice queens. Author Keith Fenimore tells the crew how to make it in hollywood and comedian Mike Recine argues that he's not a dick. Throw Nick Noto aka "Big Muff" into the mix and we have a jam packed show. When you pack jam things get messy.
Welcome back to another debatably Musical Monday, our intrepid hosts Danny and Esther are joined in the studio by comedian Peyton Clarkson, Larry King, and the world renown Benjy Susswein, comedian booker extroadinaire. We discuss the highs and lows of the club booking lifestyle and why Yeshiva University is such a hotbed for rising talent in the field. Danny offers Benjy a new stage name that he thinks will appeal to both the black and Jewish comedy communities, so keep a lookout for Abaramowitz Washington, a soon to be legend in his own time. Inexplicably, we have Larry King in the studio to discuss life, love, and the importance of the pre-nup. Larry attempts to compliment Danny, which he swiftly undercuts, corrects the legend, and then recieves wise words of advice from America's greatest interviewer. Larry talks about his several broadcasting horror stories. Rock Hudson's widow comes to mind as one of those "Oh my God. It's only been four minutes and we have an hour to fill" interviews. Esther Ku tries to woo our special guest with her song "Hey, Larry King". Amongst all of the Larry King marriage proposal songs this has to be the almost best. To end the day Larry says what everyone was thinking when he stated "You guys are weird." All said and done a great show and a special thanks again to Mr. King for doing it.
Today on the show Danny Lobell is joined by former guests Janine Brito and Peyton Clarkson as special co- hosts. Chris Iacono had his testicle sized tonstacles removed, so he couldn't be present for the show. Illustrator Avery Monsen and Comedian Ian Edwards drop by for a thought provoking show. Danny let's the audience know they are welcome in his house unless they are english,indian, ethiopian, german, brazilian, or any other ethnicity Danny has ever encountered. Avery talks about the verbally abusive woman who actually helped his work out. We put Peyton Clarkson's southern liberalism to the test as he is surrounded by people of different races, religions, and sexual orientations. All this and such questions such as: why can't funeral's be fun?, what happened to the good chicken? , and most importantly who really wrote "Nacho Libre"? Tune into find out . Same "Comical Radio" time and hopefully the same location.
Today on the show Danny Lobell and Esther Ku bring you the debut of "Ku and the Jew". On this debut episode we find out shocking secrets such as :Esther's laughing cost her a job at a pen company and that people don't like Danny when they first meet him.

Don't miss this mostly musical monday show that is "Ku and the Jew".
Still reeling from their recent eviction, Danny, Chris, and comedian Jamie Lee start the show with a lively discussion of Haunted Houses, wherein we learn the French versions are just hotbeds for molestation, and a veritable round table on Chris' new facial hair and whether he more closely resembles Mario, Luigi, or a Jewish Doctor. Thanks to Danny's tireless preparation, we learn Chris has recently switched to whole wheat pizza, is pining for a red panda, and has taken up listening to Tim [Tony] Robbins, all of which he considers a ridiculous betrayal of the man he used to be. This does, however, lead to a gripping preview of Danny's yet-to-be released inspirational tapes, touted as the "Tae Bo of motivational speaking". The arrival of writer/actor John Lutz turns conversation to the worst show's the group has performed in, including a nerdogram at a retirement party, an Indian "homecoming", a Hurricane Katrina fundraiser in a Chinese restaurant, and a benefit at a trapeze school in Brooklyn. Comedian Mike Lawrence joins the group for a dissection of Hollywood's aging A-list, and the impossibility of Carlos Mencia redeeming himself. Finally, comic Josh Accardo arrives to discuss Genevieve's tits, which can be seen in the much anticipated release of her short film, Retardian Angel, possibly the greatest premise for a film since Mall Cop. Josh attempts to promote his own movie but finds it somewhat overshadowed by the implausible brilliance of a deceased Mongoloid turned guardian angel.
Live from his apartment Today Danny goes solo while we welcome back comedian Harry Terjanian in the first episode back from being kicked out of Time Square. They turned the old studio into a haunted house so at-least it was for a reason..Danny Lobell asks the hard hitting questions like why can dogs pee every where and how can I pee through them? It's a hard hitting episode where Harry and Danny get to know each other better by talking about how strict each others parents are . Who won in this battle of the comedians? Well let's just say the winner is the first ever 12 year old jewish Santa Claus. This and the startling revelation that dogs are fun to own. Also the N word might have came up like 10 times.

Because they feel bad about physically abusing their interns, Danny and Chris take some voluntary beatings.
Today’s TMI started off with an appearance by political humorist author Brian Sack who is releasing his new book "The B.S of A: A Primer in Politics for the Incredibly disenchanted." We learned Americans should be provided more choices of political parties, kind of like cheeseburgers. Imagine a world where there are only two burgers. We want our McDemopublicans With Sleeze for all, please. Actor Gregory Korostishevsky came on the show and dropped Soviet-isms on us such as “In math there is no much to talk” and “There is no work for squeegee in New York.” He talked about teaching math in Newark, NJ where he is not allowed to hit his students. Dan Naturman then told Gregory, who fled the Soviet Union in 1990, that Newark “must be rough.” Finally an appearance was made by comedian Ralphie May and his wife Lahna Turner.

The guys try to guess which Hollywood mogul is the pedophile who molested Feldman when he was a kid. The woman whose face was ripped off by a chimp got a face transplant. Chris thinks they should have just left her faceless because now she looks like what the Grimace would be if McDonald’s cast a movie.

Danny expresses his hate for Chase bank and the tomfoolery they have put him through. The second guest of the day is Damien Lemon.

The crew is elated to announce that Justy Dodge will be back from her old stomping grounds next week!
Today’s guest, Kelly Fastuca, is from Australia and has a great radio accent. Warren is at that creepy stage where he’s been sleeping with the same woman for so long that he wants to live vicariously through other people’s sexual escapades. A 20-year-old babysitter in Connecticut sexually assaulted a 14-year-old boy. Chris doesn’t see anything wrong with this. Governor Rick Perry spews a bunch of religious crap. 45, 000 Verizon workers are on strike all screaming "CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?” Kelly thinks the didgeridoo is a terrible instrument. Chris makes the genius statement, “I’m a big fan of genetics”. In an effort to find a cure for Alzheimer’s, Koreans have engineered glow-in-the-dark beagles. PETA is going to be pissed! All this and more on today’s episode of Live From Grandma’s Basement.
Today’s first guest, Julian Hershowitz, jumps right in to promote his public game of tag in Central Park. He just graduated college, having majored in statistics. Chris says all statistics are made up. Trey Galyon enters wearing a T-shirt that says “I drank with Doug Stanhope”. Chris and Trey are both hardcore fans of Gonzo Journalism and Ralph Steadman. The guys discuss today’s stock market crash and predict the entire system will soon collapse altogether. It wasn’t that long ago that thousands of people were waiting in line for bread, Chris points out. Danny says that’s why he has his own federal reserves of food on his body. He also thinks the government wants to keep America fat. He’s okay with this because the fatter everyone else gets, the skinnier he looks in comparison. Chris thinks we need a new holocaust in America where we systematically kill everyone on Wall Street.
During this episode of Comical Radio Classic, Danny Lobell and Chris Iacono are joined by Calise Hawkins on the third mic. Danny and Calise have been friends for years and he used to have the hots for her; they clear up their awkward tension right from the start. The first guest is Jeff Caldwell. They talk about everything from Port Authority to the good ol’ days. Jeff recommends that Chris opens his heart and writes from there. The second guest was Julie Goldman. Even though she called in, the crew google imaged her and let her know how attractive they thought she was. Chris truly believes there are just way too many nail salons. Bobby Slayton joined the show as the third guest. He wastes no time telling Danny not to speak and he goes on a rant about his dislike of hasidic jews. Chris and Danny surprise Bobby Slayton as he’s on air with his neighbor Christopher Titus. Christopher Titus tells a story about how he met Bruce Springsteen. The last guest of the day was Louie Katz. The crew played a game with Louie where they took the bad notes from the interns and asked Louie bizarre questions.
During this episode of Too Much Information, Danny Lobell and Dan Naturman are doing this show as a pair seeing as they’re missing a piece to their puzzle, Justy Dodge. Naturman invented a quiz game after Michael Jackson died, however it’s making its debut now since the death of Amy Winehouse. The game is simple: Naturman will begin with a list of celebrities who are the answers, then he will read quotes said by the given celebrities about the topic at hand, the contestants will then guess which celebrity said the quote. Dan Naturman acted as the game show host, Danny Lobell was contestant one and the intern Carla was contestant two. After ten different quotes, Carla the intern beat Danny by a long shot. After the game, Dan and Danny talk to Carla briefly about the internship overall seeing as it’s her last day. Today is Barack Obama’s 50th birthday.

Chris contemplates committing a crime in Norway to get admitted to one of its luxurious prisons. All this and much more, Live from Grandma’s basement.
Chris comes in today wearing a hat that looks exactly like the hat Danny always wears. He has been tirelessly searching for a new hat after learning that his ex girlfriend gave away his fedora. Not only is Danny unable to wear his hat while sitting next to Chris now, he’s been very depressed for the past week. He threatened to quit the show this past weekend and updated his Facebook with a series of whiney statuses. Intern Andy comes in bearing bad news: for the first time in Comical Radio history, two guests walked off the show before even going on the air. Esther enters in a lovely sun hat, bringing McDonald’s for the second time in a row. She insists on eating her fries during the show. She talks about the song parodies she has been working on. Chris thinks her videos are a sexual turn off and a comedic turn on. She has space issues and doesn’t like to be touched. She doesn’t even like shaking hands, especially with men, because they jerk off so frequently. She doesn’t hate penises, she explains, she hates what’s attached to them.
On this episode of Comical Radio Classic, Danny Lobell and Chris Iacono are joined by Genevieve Joy on the third mic. The show starts off explaining the history of Chris and Gen’s complicated relationship. The first guest of the show is Avery Monsen who has written a few books including “All My Friends Are Dead” and “I Feel Relatively Neutral About NY.” If any listener was wondering, Avery cannot physically defend himself and does not wish to participate in a fight just to prove this. Danny shares a story of how when he was a teenager he was beat up by 30 eight year olds. The second guest was Mike Lawrence. Mike is a friend of Danny’s and Danny goes far enough to compare him to being the next Carlin. In high school he wasn’t allowed to attend prom, yet instead of going to his high school reunion next month he posted on a Facebook forum to let his classmates be aware of his success. Harrison Greenbaum was the third guest of the day. Harrison has been on an episode of TMI before, however the entirety of his visit was dedicated to Naturman proclaiming that Harrison must be gay--today there was none of that. Being a Harvard alum and a comedian aren’t the only things on his resume; he also doubles as a magician and magic camp counselor. Chris has been skeptical of magicians and magic tricks since the wee age of eleven. Oh and don’t forget, we have merchandise now...BUY OUR STICKERS!
Ankle Sprains and Relationship Strains
Right off the bat Chris announces he may have cancer. Chris delves into his relationship woes, his ex-girlfriend’s wrath, and his desperate search for a pilfered vintage hat. Danny irritates Chris by making pesto sauce without basil. Chris admits that he subconsciously disdains everybody born wealthy.

Danny is incredulous that his new friend is as nice as he seems. Danny and Chris reveal a BIG guest who will be coming on the show sometime soon
In this episode of Too Much Information Danny Lobell, Dan Naturman and Justy Dodge begin talking about Danny’s current ankle injury. The conversation quickly skips to how Naturman enjoys eating his meals out as often as possible and that his studio apartment is a total mess. The first guest is Pat Carlin. He started doing stand up at the young age of 78 and spoke about some of the previous professions he’s had throughout his life. He was a car salesman for a long time and tried to teach Naturman the tricks of the trade so he could pick up a side gig. Pat is constantly optimistic and enthusiastic; Danny was hoping some of his attitude would rub off on Naturman which didn’t happen. The next guest of the show Joseph Zdanowski, a chiropractor as well as the inventor of the Evol process. Joseph enlightened the crew with different ways in which they can make themselves healthier. After giving these tips that will not only make you healthier but help you to lose weight he performed some of his chiropractor skills on Danny. Through these different maneuvers Joseph was able to figure out that Danny’s left side of his body is the more dominant one and helped toxins move their way to his colon. Danny is taking this as the first step in his battle to get healthy.
On the latest edition of Grandma’s basement, Chris, Warren, and guest co-host Jordon Ferber try to make the show more conspiracy-oriented. The three men agree that they are all somewhat watered down versions of their respective fathers, but Chris has a hard time believing Warren is any less annoying than his father. Chris and Warren accuse each other of not being well informed on recent debt-ceiling talks. The crew debates whether a video of a UFO sighting in San Paolo, Brazil was doctored. If aliens are out there, Chris hopes they’re all like Alf and eat cats.

Warren wants the old Dominos advertising campaigns back. Jordon recalls a fateful encounter with a beehive at summer camp. Chris wants vaginas texted to his phone instead of the steady slew of dick photos he has received after his girlfriend played a cruel trick on him. All this and much more live from Grandma’s basement.
This is a very special episode of Comical Radio. Danny Lobell and Chris Iacono are joined by Dave Kasten. The ridiculously high temperatures of New York have not put a damper on the crews moods however. The three start off by discussing a fight Kasten and Chris had a ways back. Kasten talks about how he is moving to Israel for six months and hopes that his job is not being a beekeeper. SURPRISE! Myka Fox walks into the studio and joins the crew.

Sunday, Monday, Happy Thursday !
In this episode of Too Much Information, Danny Lobell, Dan Naturman and Justy Dodge are joined by guests Adam Mansbach, Henry Winkler and Rider Strong.. The first guest is Mansbach, who is the author of “Go the F*** to Sleep.” The crew expected him to be a nerdy white professor yet they were surprised when he turned out to be a black guy stuck in a Jew’s body. Our favorite, “Jackie Mason,” stopped by to read from the book. The second guest is the legendary Henry Winkler. Even though most know the legend for his part in the sitcom “Happy Days,” he has written a book titled “I Never Met an Idiot on the River.” Danny knew Winkler was a big Obama fan and asked about his feelings on the Israeli policies. The crew was also intrigued to know who he can and cannot call up. They name drop and the conversation goes on. The third guest was Rider Strong, known for his character Shawn Hunter on the 90’s sitcom "Boy Meets World." Strong has donated money to help reintroduce wolves to Yellowstone in the past, which leads to a conversation on werewolves. Danny tells a story of how when he was a child he would have nightmares of werewolves chasing him and a friend. Whether or not Rider has hooked up with co-star Danielle Fishell, Topanga on "Boys Meets World," is a hot topic of conversation. And surprisingly, Dan Naturman is NOT in a horrid mood!
On today’s first Wednesday show a Rap Battle bit was performed. Danny Lobell and Chris Iacono were joined by judges Gawy, Chester the life coach and Cece the black tranny. DJ Rabi was helping the crew out with some beats. Comical Radio searched high and low to find some of NYC’s finest rapping street talent. First up was C-Bash who was performing for his second time. Second, Robyn briefly performed where she had an ‘oopsie’ and had to restart. One of the judges was quite infatuated with her. Third up was Kon. Kon blew the judges away with his rap skills. And lastly was Marvelous. Danny found him on the street and he continually told us about how much he enjoys marijuana. There was a special performance by Sewer John aka the intern Andy. Right before the freestyle round Robyn and Marvelous both left. Then it all came down to just Kon and C-Bash. There were three rounds of freestyle battling; it was close but in the end Kon prevailed becoming the overall winner. The show finished up by discussing political figures the black tranny would and wouldn’t sleep with.
With Warren out of town and Danny absent from the studio, Chris hosts today’s episode of Live From Grandma’s Basement with guest James Goff. James is a huge video game nerd. He’s obsessed with Call of Duty. The guys discuss the fact that Netflix has increased their membership prices. Chris cancelled his Netflix account a long time ago, now he just steals movies online like a normal person. He feels personally responsible for the downfall of Blockbuster because he was a manager at a Blockbuster when he was twenty and never charged people for late fees. James complains that Netflix thinks they know him. He rents one black movie, and they start suggesting exclusively black movies to him. James plugs his favorite porn site, Xandexcess.com. Chris is disappointed that Danny isn’t in the studio today because he likes to get his input on food-related news topics. For instance, studies have found that eating with a big fork can help you eat less. James thinks the best way to lose weight is to get dumped. Chris disagrees. Instead of losing weight, he sits around crying and eating ice cream. Alcohol was banned for three days in Ecuador because 21 people died after drinking some bootleg liquor. James doesn’t do drugs or drink. On one occasion, he drank half a forty-ounce of malt liquor and swore he would never drink again. A couple from South Carolina thinks they saw an image of Jesus in their Wal Mart receipt. Chris thinks this is a brilliant marketing ploy. He then says there is a company selling real estate on the moon and making millions of dollars. Also, he doesn’t believe we actually killed Bin Laden. Either he’s been dead for years or we didn’t kill him.
Ray Gootz, today’s guest is a 30-year-old virgin. He blames bad luck for his lack of sex life. Danny suggests he move to Brooklyn. Chris advises him to bite the bullet and have sex with a girl who needs it really, really badly. Danny was in love with a girl in high school and was heartbroken when she asked him to loan her money for an abortion. Chris dated the biggest slut in his high school. When he took her to a Bloodhound Gang concert, she ended up having sex with one (of more) of the band members. Ray points out that it could’ve been worse; she could’ve banged Chumbawamba. The guys discuss Disney shows they watched as kids. Danny admits he did, and still does, think Babs Bunny is hot. Chris calls him a pedophile because Babs is a child rabbit, not to mention the fact that she is basically Bugs Bunny in drag. Danny proclaims Tony to be 1939’s “producer of the year”. Ray says Tony looks like a guy who would’ve ratted on Al Capone. Ray tells a tragic story about his monster of an ex-girlfriend from high school. Chris and Danny agree that she may be the reason for his virginity.
On today’s show, Danny Lobell and Chris “big love” Iacono were joined by Gina “Jesus Freak” Brillon on the third mic. The three begin by talking about an upcoming bit that involves a black tranny. Danny and Chris were expecting an ugly tranny to respond to the ad and the one they got is actually rather good looking. Danny resents boobs whereas Chris is a boobs guy. Gina shares a few anecdotes of her trials and tribulations dealing with older people. Danny recalls a childhood memory of not being picked for a flag football team. The first guest of the episode was John Gemberling of the UCB’s Death by Roo Roo Improv Team. Danny has seen him perform before and truly thinks John will go places. Because of this prediction, John says when he makes it big he will give Danny $100. The second guest is Ryan Conner. He recently went on tour in China and shared a few stories with the crew about the scams he fell for while there. Danny relates his pizza addiction to a heroin addiction. Reese Waters joined the group for the end of the show. Reese has been on “Letterman” recently and this sparks a conversation about how the comics feel as though they’re judged by their peers during a set. At the end of the show, Reese proclaims his distaste for Baltimore and Kylie jumps on the mic to defend it, her old stomping grounds.
Danny Lobell, Dan Naturman and Justy Dodge gather for another episode of TMI. Naturman is a dark cloud of gloom as per usual and he hates on Justy for being a ray of sunshine. Naturman gives advice to a new comic, Harry Terjanian, on knowledge that he has gained in show biz over the years. Justy leaves the show for a brief moment, yet when she returns Naturman is already enriching Harry’s mind. The crew has Harry do a small bit which leads into Danny pretending to be a big-wig comic and Naturman pretending to be Harry. In this short exchange, they explain to Harry how he should befriend more famous comics. Some of the advice Naturman gives is make more famous friends, be yourself, be more blue collar, be less nice, be more aggressive and don’t go below 14th street. Danny does his Jay Leno and Lisa Lampanelli impressions. At the end of the show, Justy talks briefly about the bad audition she had at the Comic Strip.
Danny replaces Warren in this episode of LFGB. He and Chris are joined by Kevin Bartini. Danny hopes the show goes more smoothly than he co-hosted with Warren a couple of weeks ago. Chris brings up a UK study that reveals babies should be exercising to prevent obesity later in life. This reminds Danny of the fact that he never crawled as a baby. Worried that he was developmentally challenged, his parents took him to several doctors. He was diagnosed as being fat and lazy. He is so lazy he takes the subway elevators instead of the stairs. Like most people, Kevin refuses to use subway elevators because they smell like piss. The gang discusses an Arizona senator who is under scrutiny for having pointed a (pink) gun at a reporter during an interview. She defends herself saying she didn’t have her finger on the trigger. Chris wants a gun with the Comical Radio logo on it. House GOP leaders are ginning up excitement for Tuesday's vote to roll back lightbulb efficiency standards, calling it the "Save the Lightbulb" bill. Danny brags about his knowledge of light bulbs from his days as a light bulb salesman. He then criticizes Comedy Central for roasting easy targets such as Charlie Sheen, Donald Trump and Flavor Flav. He’d rather see Paul McCartney roasted. Or maybe Arnold Schwarzenegger as long as there were no impressions allowed. Kevin wonders, who give still cares about Charlie Sheen? Think outside the box, Comedy Central.
