No new episode this week, as we prep Theme Month 2020, announced here by myself and Lara, complete with some surprise twists, aka, I based it all around one director and accidentally included a movie he didn't direct.
Brian and Courtney review the long-awaited "Santa With Muscles", a Hulk Hogan kiddie flick with a surprisingly overqualified supporting cast of "that guy" actors and kids who will be famous some day.
Okay, this one's a bit weird, but you can blame election week. Join the Mayor and Emily as they examine "Last Christmas" a little movie with a big heart and a rather tenuous concept.
FINALLY the randomizer gives us some Christmas, even if it is mostly over by Act 1. But who can be mad when you've someone as charming as Jimmy Durante taking you along? Anton joins us for "The Great Rupert"!
YET AGAIN the randomizer taunts us with the merest hints of Christmas, this time with the mediocre slasher film "ATM", whose claim to being a Christmas movie seems to be that it takes place in view of a tree lot.
Justin has a special Halloween message for everyone, so we've got a special main feed bonus episode to deliver it!
CHRISTMAS IS BACK! Kind of! How fitting that for their first episode back in the prime universe, Colleen and the Mayor review "Meet Me In St. Louis", a movie that takes its sweet [jingle] time in getting to the Christmas part everyone knows.
Well, the original plan was to release this one after the outbreak was over, but…*Looks forlornly out window* Anyway, this was Lara’s original first episode as a full-time Tinseltownie, and it’s a DOOZY.
Read the article at ComedyWham.com This week, Tyler Groce sits down with Valerie Lopez live on our first ever Twitch broadcast of the interview podcast to talk about how he's learned the most in comedy by doing comedy - from improv to standup to videos, and most recently to podcasting. We learn about his most intensive learning experience with Boom…
In this SUPER SIZED episode from our final alternate universe, Brian and Sarah review the extremely super sized movie The 10 Commandments, a weirdly horny biblical epic.
As the Mayor tries to sort out his dimensional drama, have another from the Patreon vaults, as Anton helps cover a classic film of his people, the Soviet-era winter fantasy "Jack Frost".
In the Independence Day universe, Anton and the mayor review the holiday's titular movie, Independence Day. It's an incredibly long film with ten thousand characters, most of whom are completely inexplicable.
This week, in the Halloween universe, Brian and Justin review "Trick 'r Treat", which is just... It's just so ding-dang good, y'all.
This week, the Brian and Colleen of the Easter universe look at "The Robe", a rather typical overstuffed and undercooked Bible epic that takes the weird tactic of being mostly about someone who's a few blocks away from whatever's happening in the Bible.
Whatever rumors you may hear, the Mayor is NOT uploading a years-old Patreon episode because the stress of starting the school year right now wrecked his schedule up. Certainly not. The actual reason is time travel. Or quantum.
This week takes us to the pagan holidays universe, where Brian and Courtney look at Midsommar, a movie about what happens when you go with a hippie to a second location.
Back in the Labor Day universe now, Brian and Emily take an in-depth look at Newsies, the number one source for millennial childhood crushes by volume.
This week, our transmission comes from the Mardi Gras universe, which, as far as transmissions you can get from Mardi Gras goes, is fairly mild. Robbie and Brian of that world bring you: "The Princess and the Frog"!
From a universe with terrible sound quality on both ends (sorry), Lara and I review Leap Year, a movie that is MARGINALLY about leap years.
The Mayor's wifi is still on the other side of a dimensional vortex, so this week, we're stopping off in the Labor Day universe to look at "Salt of the Earth", a fairly mild melodrama containing nothing anyone could disagree with, yet was SOMEHOW considered horrifying communist propaganda in the 50s.…
This week, despite the swirling vortex in the Mayor's home office, everything goes completely normally. We're Ross and you're the boss.
Bringing guest month to a very unconventional end, Matt joins me to talk about "Barbie Princess Charm School", a movie my students made me watch.
Alonso Duralde joins us again to discuss ANOTHER Christmas Carol musical, this time starring Kelsey Grammer, Jane Krakowski, Jesse L. Martin, Jason Alexander, and probably also some people who weren't on NBC shows.
Tim Montoya joins us again to talk about Trapped in Paradise, a movie that he loves, yet freely admits isn't very good. It's a 1994 comedy that feels like it was made in 1987, written and directed by someone who - and this isn't a joke, just a true behind the scenes fact - utterly did not care.
Read the article at ComedyWham.com This week, Vladimir Caamaño sits down with Valerie Lopez to talk about how starting comedy in New York City was a successful training ground in no small part due to living rent free with his dad, successfully landing Just For Laughs Montreal, and his growing TV career. Apologies in advance for the deep dive into a…
Lisa Kopitsky rejoins us to go over what is, the the great shame of the Jewish people, the biggest Hanukkah movie of all time, "Eight Crazy Nights". In this episode, we discuss Adam Sandler's singing voice, the film's confused ethics, and why all basketball movies are Hanukkah movies.
Chant MacLeod joins the Mayor to discuss "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians", one of the shiniest gems from 1964, which was just... just a TERRIBLE year for film.
Read the article at ComedyWham.com This week, Luis Flandes sits down across a computer monitor with Valerie Lopez to talk about how comedy was something he's always wanted to do, how he's seen the Austin comedy scene change over the last 8 years, getting his invitation to his first festival (and what a first festival to land -- Moontower), and how …
BLACK LIVES MATTER, AND THE SYSTEM IS BROKEN. Please support the struggle any way you can, whether actively, monetarily, signal-boosting, or just plain old yelling at your uncle on Facebook. You know the one I mean. This week, Matt Rowbotham of "Endeavor" and "Kids Love Batman" joins the Mayor to talk about the fairly recent creature feature "Kramp…
Lights, please. In this episode, Sarah and Brian recap "The Nativity Story", a boring and bad movie that everyone already knows the plot of anyway. Topics covered include whether Sarah's daughters are better than Jesus (yes), whether you'd know these people are good actors from watching this (no), and whether donkeys are waterproof (unclear at best…
The Christmas Boys take another crack at the current culture's most dominant form of blockbuster with Shazam!, a superhero movie that didn't exactly bust any blocks, but is very good. The Christmas Boys are Brian and Robbie.
The Mayor and Colleen get embrangled in a sea of dames as they review the truly bizarre POV film noir "The Lady in the Lake".
Anton and the Mayor join forces for an alarmingly sloppy Rankin-Bass Santa origin story... No, this is the other one. "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town".
David joins us to talk about "Just Getting Started", a movie that asks the question "What happens when a reasonably accomplished sports movie director does a mob comedy with two acting legends?" The answer: Nothing worth watching!
We might have to shut down for good after this thick slice of Canadian bacon, "Christmas in Wonderland". This week, Lara unofficially officially joins the mayoral staff, the Mayor almost burns down his apartment, we name a new Tinseltown All-Star, and we have our lives spiritually transformed by a sublime filmmaking experience. Also there may be a …
Read the article at ComedyWham.com This week, Symply Courtney sits down with Valerie Lopez via Zoom to talk about how working at a kid's camp helped launch his comedy career, the lessons he learned from doing 34 shows in 30 nights (pre-quarantine, of course), and how remaining positive has helped him navigate the rough patches in his life and comed…
1 - Don't expose him to light. 2 - He hates loud music. 3 - Ass, gas, or grass, no one rides free. IT'S GREMLINS!
The Rom-Comtesse, Emily, has returned with her quarantine partner Spencer in tow, and she's brought "The Holiday". This one had to be done over the phone, so the sound quality is... variable.
Coming at you almost live from inside a small orb of glass and metal, the Mayor is joined by Justin to review that classic-ass classic, "A Christmas Story"! Hope y'all like NOSTALGIA, because Jean Shepherd ain't the only one doling it out this week.
Little Sweet comin' on the podcast! You deserve a sweeeeeeet episode of Tinseltown! OW! Nothing unusual happens in this one.
Just our little contribution to the war effort: it's not a pandemic if you can't drink shitty wine and listener, we have the crossover episode to help heal your isolated soul. Forget about the world falling apart for a little bit and learn about the crazy history of Manischewitz, the little matzoh company that became a household name and synonymous…
Read the article at ComedyWham.com! This week Toronto based comedian Jarrett Campbell sits down with us after having a skyrocketing year leading to a Juno nomination for Comedy Album of the Year. While a pandemic has temporarily put his tour on hold, he graciously spends some of his social isolation time to share how he came to love comedy and it's…
You're a socially distancing one, Mr. Grinch, and Courtney and the Mayor go a little loopy reviewing your latest movie, which frames you as a sort of depressed millennial. But hey. Hey. You're all right.
Read the article at ComedyWham.com This week, Lando Shepard sits down with Valerie Lopez to talk about how he's broken down stereotypes, learned about comedy from the ground up, and he even shared with us some breaking news that had Valerie squealing with joy. And how throughout all its ups and its downs, only 1 thing matters...his family. Lando ca…
Anton and the Mayor take a look at another movie about a hot Christmas toy, but this time, it's SCAAAAARY! Allegedly. It's "Pooka!", a competently directed and incompetently scripted movie that paints us into the corner of having to watch at least six made for TV horror films.
Read the article at ComedyWham.com This week Portland transplant Christian Van Wade sits down with Lara Smith to discuss how he got his start and learned to stay true to his instincts for the abstract. His new video short, Nature Scene, is a must-see. Get to know how Van Wade uses context to drive each and every show. Christian can be seen: Slaught…
