We headed to The Comedy Store in Hollywood a few days back to drown our Charlie Murphy sorrows with Bill Burr, Judd Apatow, Joe Rogan, Chris D’Elia, Bryan Callen and others.
Afterward, we made our way back to Antiquiet HQ for AQ Podcast #13, a lively debate on the best living comedians in this new Golden Age of stand-up. In this episode, Skwerl and I each break down our top 5, before going haywire on the old “women aren’t funny” stereotype, breaking all the funny bones before turning to new music.
We shout excitedly from elevated places about the incredible new Builders & The Butchers album The Spark (out 5.19), the best offering yet from Portland’s hauntingly fierce folk maestros. We also dive into the tremendous new record from Austin’s dark psychedelia champions Black Angels, called Death Song (4.21), which you can hear now on NPR.
Need some lava in your veins? Get in on the action with Skwerl’s new playlist, Outperforming the Index Fund. It’s fucking fantastic, and the only thing that’s gotten my ears off Kendrick’s new shit since the weekend.
