This week we see the return of a bit that lead to endless amounts of anxiety, dread, and torment for our panelists. We also welcome a fantastic funk band to the studio, which promises to make Bananaman lose his mind in all the good ways.
Before we get into that – last week, we certainly did write a book! R.L. Stine, Dave Hill, and D.C. Pierson were all amazingly game to be a part of the shitshow that happens when you invite Calstead and stoned kids from the Midwest to call your show and write your book for you. It was a fantastic time. Not to mention, the Disposable Rocket Band brought the absolute heat straight into our studio audience.
This week, the BLINDFOLD SHOW returns. The original Blindfold Show was one of our greatest shows of all time, and saw things like a John F. Kennedy stand up inexplicably hung behind the panel, sausages dangled in the panel’s faces, and a silent performance by literally the worst person ever, Vacation Jason. If you haven’t watched it yet, it truly is an episode that captures the weirdness and fun we like to have at TCGS. This year, Noah Forman and Dru Johnston have vowed to go even bigger, to make things even less comfortable, and to tempt the fury of the panelists even more with the chicanery they promise to execute while the entire panel sits blindfolded in nervous anxiety.
On top of that greatness, I’m very psyched that we’ll be welcoming Ikebe Shakedown to the show! These guys bring FUNK to a whole new level in a way that’s not ironic at all. Dancy, funky, awesome music coming deep from the bowels of Brooklyn straight into your living room via our studio.
This night will be FUN.
