"Mike Danforth, and Ian, chilidog whom Mike rather endearingly calls. Chilly are the executive and senior producers respectively of wait. Wait, don't tell me in your mics. I hire. Oh, yeah. That's true. He called me as soon as he heard. I had got fired from my previous job. I did I left on him dating or like a vulture. Yeah. It was kind of a rebound job. You guys are the behind the scenes guys whose whose name super fans may recognize. But how do you feel about not getting any of the glory that the host and Bill and the panelists get will. We, you know, we like to say things that you know, we we like to push our takes on things as much as possible and occasionally like, I will, you know, write something or will will come up with a joke together that I will insist Peter says, and then if I ask myself would I be willing to say this to five hundred people, and then to, you know, millions of people on a radio show and have it come out of my mouth. Absolutely not. I would never say that. And so it's like it's very secure, and it's a real luxury to be able to put horrible things out into the world and have someone else be blamed for thinking them if there's. Anything that we do that causes a fence? I'm the person that gets in trouble. When something goes wrong on the show for real. Yeah. How do you get in trouble? So the people at NPR, they'll call me and say, hey, we've had a lot of people complaining about this thing that happened on the show last week. Can you give me an example when this has happened? One good example was a bluff game that we did years ago. So one of our panelists Peter gross wrote his bluff, and it was basically built around polish jokes. I let's hear from Peter gross. The city of Gdansk Poland isn't just famous for having the country's six biggest population. An average temperature of seventy two degrees. A large seaport and a very easy to read Wikipedia page. It also boasts one of Poland's most thriving theatre communities. This fall the people's theatre of Dansk was mounting production of west side story, but on opening night, a key light on the set went out in the middle of the show, but an argument or opted over whose job it was to fix it. It. Strict electrons union rules dictated that only a union electrician be allowed to work on lighting equipment, but equally strong stagehands union laws called for stagehand to perform any and all work on the theatrical set. So they made a deal the electricity stood on the chair holding a light bulb while the stagehand turned the chair the show was able to go on after it took two poles to screw in the light bulb. So we did it and people complained and that happens every week someone complains, but the polish consulate in Chicago also complained, and I think they may be talked to Chicago Tribune. Oh my gosh. So then I got a call from a reporter about it. And I talked to the reporter, and then I had to call the weather. It is the polish general counsel here in Illinois in Chicago. And I talked to that person. I'm sorry..

Let's hear first from Peter gross the Brown theatre in Louisville Kentucky, which describes itself as the grand Dom of Louisville's artistic community prides itself on presenting exceptional theatrical experiences and on Saturday the audience was treated to a truly unique event. The single worst performance of the musical the wiz anyone had ever seen almost every element of the production. Was cursed starting with the costumes, according to one audience member the shows Dorothy was wearing dress that was quote, clearly from WalMart. Another patron told reporters that the cowardly lions costume didn't include a tail or a main and he was missing one of his paws, which he made up for covering his hand with a black sock. He didn't even look like a lion reported. This budding Ben Brantley he looked like a dumb sasquatch, then there was the crew which set up for the wrong seen several times then had to quickly scurry to reset for the correct seen after the lights came up revealing their mistake on the back. Wall of the set was an image of a cornfield in a barn projected from a laptop which lent a nice touch until notification said to that laptop kept popping up over the image of the cornfield a giant tab asking. If you want to download the latest version of windows, ten kind of takes you out of the reality of being in Kansas. So does the actress playing Dorothy saying she wants to go back to Texas, which is something that also happened during the top of all that in the whizz Dorothy isn't even from Kansas. She's from Harlem where you're more likely to see Ted Cruz sitting at a barbershop talking about the OJ's than you are to see a cornfield at a barn. Suffice to say there were few friends of Dorothy in Louisville last Saturday night, it did break one box office record, though, people began walking out only nine minutes into the show spokesman for the theater declined to say how many angry calls they received. But that's probably because all the phones in the theater were replaced with black socks the staff. Purchase at WalMart. Production of the wiz. So terrible. People began demanding phones after just nine minutes.

"The guests seemed amused by this eccentric display until one of them lost his balance fell into the table and caused the terrain Eum to slide to the floor and tip over. That's when the spiders began crawling toward the dinner tables, apparently drawn by the scent of the first course, a warm mushroom tart quote, the chef obviously had no idea that wild mushroom smell like dead creek. Tickets which are spiders favorite food chambers explained to the New York Times. Last week, I was worried about the tragedy in my friends were worried they were going to die this. The spiders were all retrieved unharmed. But the party ended early and no one touched the birthday cake in the shape of a giant tarantula. I have seven legs left, said chambers. Part of an entomologist gets a little hairy tarantulas. Get out your last story of Suare snafu comes from Peter gross gender. Reveal parties are great way to let people know to important facts the gender of your baby, and that you are in narcissist who thinks people want to come to a party to find out the gender of your baby. Attendees to a recent Tucson, Arizona party found out a third fact gender veal's and explosives don't mix Arizona border patrol agent. Dennis Dickey was looking for a way to impress his wife at their recent gender reveal party. So he did with any soon to be dad would do. He went overboard according to police reports, Dickey fire day, quote, high velocity firearm at a target. He packed with a substance intended to explode pink or blue powder into the air. Instead Dicky's active high-velocity stupidity caused an immediate combustion and due to the hot and dry air Zona condition sparked a fire that wound up consuming forty, five thousand acres, forcing hundreds of people from their homes and costing the state over eight million dollars. What's worse as the explosive substance Dickey placed inside the target is called tannery, which is legal, but extremely volatile and had already been the cause of several major. Wildfires state regulators are exploring new law under which Tanna right would come in the following warning cautioned. Highly explosive material. We can't believe we have to say this, but do not stuff this into target and fire a gun at it for gender via party. Dickey was contrite, but was still charged with one count of starting a fire without a permit and two counts of ruining his pregnant wife big day, which carries a minimum sentence of sleeping on the couch for a month and a maximum sentence of a lifetime ban on. Well, let's just say the activity that would result in a pregnant wife. Somewhere, somebody who party and it did not go as planned, was it from Paula Poundstone Spiderman birthday party, which is going great until Spiderman got stuck trying to climb down the wall. Then also, Batman got stuck when he tried to rescue them from Roxanne Roberts an entomologist birthday party with tarantulas got out or from Peter gross agenda reveal party. That ended up causing a terrible wildfire which of these the real story of party gone wrong. Founds the least plausible, but I have a feeling that that's actually true. All right. You say, see, that would be Peter story of the wildfire caused by the gender reveal party and the all right. We'll bring you the correct answer. We spoke to reporter who covered this Ray gone wrong, a guy with setting up a gender, reveal party and start aid. That was riana sacks, breaking news reporter for BuzzFeed news, telling us about the gender, reveal party, turned inferno. Congratulations, you got it right. And now everybody knows don't throw agenda, reveal party figure point Peter gross. You wanna prize the voice of anyone. Congratulations. Thank you so much. Thank you. Take care of. Thanks a lot.

"Because of my experience writing for seth meyer's and for coal bear and they want me to bring me along as like a you know like i had writer type person and as we started talking we realized you know has a lot of the same comedy references in and the old tv comedy references and just as we were brainstorming i think either anthony our adams said own you should you should play pence as a anthony said i think asia play pence as his a psychic like ed mcmahon other guy out degraded love to do that and i never once thought about impersonating mike pence united sat down and watched him and he the range of trump is anthony has just expressed so well it just goes from like little child too old woman to um you know impetuous man to all sorts of voelkel ranges and pence is way more down the middle and i think what i do when i try to impersonate him is too always at some point at the beginning of the show sort of show people that sort of squint d ernest mike pence that wants to just like you know pull the country up on his knee and tell ya bedtime story that kind of thing and then also veer off into like the sound of that clip with like that's not buds and sally pence it sounds like me but i think i think we want to show people like what the characterization of a of pence behind the scenes sort of is so even if it sounds exactly like me and i was sort of lose like any sort of impression i think if i just behave in a way that shows what pence might be like that that seems to be good enough for us so mike pence defines himself this way he says emma christian conservative and republican in that order woohoo so they got the jewish guy peter gross picture until you have to italy coincident yes my friend said that when i told her the idea she said you are the bagel to mike pence is corn muffins mad that's our magic trick my guess are anthony atomic and peter gross the stars of the comedy central series the president show after a break we'll talk about their christmas special which is coming up tomorrow night and a.
