It’s been a while but Owen & TJ are back! Unfortunately, TJ had a little too much “fun” and is calling in from Florida State Prison. That doesn’t stop them from covering the recent news stories involving the long term effects of Sequestration, the North Korean nuclear missile threats on the United States, and restrictions on firearms in Connecticut.
No one can make Jeff shed tears of joy more than Will Ferrell. Will tells us his theory on Tommy Lee Jones’ reaction to his & Kristen Wiig’s Golden Globes bit, the one time he had to perform sketch comedy for the O.J. Simpson jury in a courtroom, and how Christopher Walken is haunted by the more cowbell sketch. He also talks about failing to make Woody Allen laugh, why he would love to work with Michael Bay on a film, and constantly being asked if he is wearing a fake mustache. Plus, we find out what’s in Will’s gigantic wallet.
Out of the street and into the studio, Billy Eichner of Funny or Die’s Billy on the Street is on today’s Comedy Bang Bang! Billy shares his take on George Carlin’s “Stuff” routine, explains where the idea for his show came about, and tells us about meeting Meryl Streep. Scott’s partner in crime Reggie Watts stops by to treat us to some brand new fresh sounds for 2013. The one and only Frosty the Snowman has a short time with us to talk about his failed show Catch Me If You Can, his current problem with an officer, and joins Billy & Reggie for a super sized game of Would You Rather?
On today’s episode of Owen & TJ Read The News, Owen tries his best to read the news as TJ’s step dad Jack (Rob Riggle) drops by to give his two cents on the current events, describes his mentoring relationship with TJ, and tells us about his plans on becoming a wrestler. It gets real heavy when they discuss the fiscal cliff, why sports isn’t news and the war on Christmas.
We JUST RELEASED a brand-new podcast!
From the minds of Owen Burke (Funny or Die) and Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers, Talladega Nights).
