8/20 on TCGS – SHOULD WE KEEP DOING THIS SHOW? with musical guest BLACK WINE!

Fans of TCGS know that recently I’ve been of a mentality I’ve dubbed EVOLVE OR DIE – meaning the show needs to shift gears somehow or move on. The past month we’ve done some episodes that touch on this in serious ways, we’ve done some goofy episodes to push ourselves in some new directions, and we’ve tried to tie up a bunch of loose ends in case the death of the show is near.

This Wednesday, the Evolve or Die project comes to a head.

This week, we have a simple call in topic – “Should we keep doing this show?” Call up, say yes or no, and we’ll keep a running tally. For most calls, we’ll simply take your yes or no and hang up. Every once in a while, randomly, I will ask a caller to expand on their thoughts regarding this subject.

I’m going to take all these thoughts and opinions and my feelings regarding the show and I’m gonna go away for a while. I’m gonna get married, then I’m gonna go on a honeymoon, and I’m going to put this show out of my mind as best as possible during that stretch so as to enjoy it all as much as possible.

I won’t be emailing or tweeting or thinking about the show in that time.

HERE’S THE DEAL AFTER THAT – Tune in on September 24th. That’s the first week I’ll be back in NYC.

If there’s a show on, then TCGS continues.

If there’s no show on, I decided to hang it up.

Simple.

On this intense and introspective and emo week, I’m glad we get to break things up with the music of our old friends BLACK WINE! This will be Black Wine’s second appearance on TCGS and I’m happy to welcome back their rock and roll stylings. They just released a new album on the great Don Giovanni Records. It’s a scorcher and I hope you check it out!

8/13 on TCGS – 18TH CENTURY AMERICAN GLADIATORS w/musical guest Open Mike Eagle!

Ladies and gents, this week we tie up the greatest loose end in the history of TCGS. Many many moons ago, LLC member Bill Florio off-handedly made reference to us doing an episode entitled “18th Century American Gladiators”. For years, there’s been an ongoing joke between our writers and fan base where we constantly teaseContinue Reading

EVOLVE OR DIE CONTINUES! This Wednesday, our quest to take apart and reassemble TCGS continues! One of the most recurrent themes of our fans’ outreach when we asked for their advice on how to alter the show was that they wanted to see it be more MY show. More my sensibilities and choices, less pleasingContinue Reading

7/30 on TCGS – ShoutoutTV presents THE BOOTY SHAKE HOUR with Bo Montez and musical guest CHRIS FARREN

Hey everyone – Gethard here. Thanks for watching last week. Anyone who saw episode 137 can tell you I’m currently experiencing some very complex feelings regarding the state of The Chris Gethard Show and my life in general. With that in mind, it felt like maybe this week I should take some personal time toContinue Reading

7/23 on TCGS – WHY DID YOU STOP WATCHING THE CHRIS GETHARD SHOW?

This week on TCGS – no characters, no costumes, no musical guest, no house band, no hula hooping. Just us on screen taking calls from people who used to watch our show but don’t anymore, so they can tell us why. Priority will be given to old veteran callers – I haven’t heard from peopleContinue Reading

7/16 on TCGS – Talk About Whatever You Want (But We Recommend Professional Wrestling) with special guest TITO SANTANA and music by BRYAN AND THE HAGGARDS

Hello! For the past two weeks, we’ve explored the strange and wonderful world of professional wrestling, as suggested by a young man named Tyler from Queens. It’s been a good two weeks, with last week seeing heartfelt promos cut on all different people, including the Chat Ratz, New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio, and Comedy Central.Continue Reading

7/9 on TCGS – WE AREN’T DONE TALKING ABOUT WRESTLING YET w/musical guest BAD BEHAVIOR

Last week on TCGS, our whole show was defined by the first caller. That first caller was a guy named “Tyler from Queens”, and he set us down a path where we spent a whole hour talking about professional wrestling. Well, professional wrestling is something that is of the UTMOST importance to me. It absolutelyContinue Reading

7/2 on TCGS – The First Call Show w/musical guest CHUMPED

This week on TCGS, the entire quality of the show rides on the shoulder of one random, unknown person – and it could be you. We will take one call right at the top of that show. Whatever that first caller wants to talk about is what we will talk about the whole time. TheContinue Reading

6/25 on TCGS – THE NIGHT OF ZERO LAUGHS w/musical guest LOW FAT GETTING HIGH

This week on TCGS, a tradition will return. A tradition of endurance. A tradition of skill. A tradition of ZERO LAUGHS. After many years, one of the all time beloved TCGS topics gets revisited as we ask the question “What happens when you tell a group of very funny people that they are not allowedContinue Reading
