A conversation that begins with Marc suggesting Andrew’s wife might leave him and plumbing issues somehow leads to a long and winding diatribe on puppetry, Chastity Bono and the death penalty. Plus the brothers cover disgraced politician Anthony Weiner and his bid to become New York City’s next mayor, Michelle Bachmann’s fall from grace, male crooners of the Sixties and Seventies who might be gay and “Game of Thrones” business practices. Also loyal Fighting Ungers listener and actor Jeffrey Weissman, who portrayed the character George McFly in the films “Back to the Future II” and “Back to the Future III”, plays Fighting Ungers Busted Out Trivia.
In a pretty chaotic episode, the brothers discuss childhood evictions, the movie Spaceballs, Andrew’s six year old daughter’s artistic talents and offer their less than flattering take on the pathetic, ego-driven Marc Maron/Michael Ian Black Twitter fight. Plus comedian and 98Rock Morning Show radio host, Mickey Cucchiella, stops by to talk comedy, Andrew’s emotional stability, Marc’s career and helps listener Elie Goldstein play a particularly memorable segment of “Fighting Ungers Busted Out Trivia.” WARNING: LISTENING TO THIS EPISODE MAY INDUCE A PANIC ATTACK.
The brothers sit down with comedy legend Paul Reiser to talk a little about his life and career but mostly about how they both think he’s funnier than Seinfeld. Plus assorted riffs on Stephen Hawking and the existence of God, Marc visiting their father’s grave-site, cloning, their alcoholic mother, Pat Robertson’s insanity and a woman who punched a fast food employee over pickles. Also “Fighting Ungers Busted Out Trivia” with contestant Mike Quindlen.
In discussing Marc’s wife Andrew finally crosses all lines of propriety while Marc whines about his stereo. Plus Andrew smells racism in the Republican attempts to impeach the President over Benghazi, the voice of Charlie Brown gets sentenced for stalking, and the brothers have a very disturbing discussion about little kids and guns. Also “Fighting Ungers Busted Out Trivia” with contestant Christine D. WARNING- If you’re Marc’s mother in law, you might not want to listen!
This week the brothers cover deeply philosophical topics including Marc’s lack of a butt, Andrew’s lack of a thin waistline and his increasingly disturbing sexual fixations. Plus comedian Mike Storck stops by to speak French, talk about the NBA’s first openly gay player and help contestant Andrew Gardiner compete for prizes in the “Fighting Ungers Busted Out Trivia” game.
