Happy April Fools! The joke is on us as today’s co-host Nick Kroll joins Scott to talk about Kroll Show season 2, sandwiches, and showcase his Christopher Walken impression as they wait for Jon Hamm to arrive. Eventually Jon arrives to chat about the return of Mad Men, shooting the pilot of Mad Men with the crew from The Sopranos, and Capitol One commercials. And if that’s not enough for you, we are introduced to El Chupacabra’s brother El Chupacabro!
One man band Reggie Watts joins Ku-Ku & Wie-Wie to countdown some charts in a LIVE episode from Vancouver, British Columbia!

The gang finds out which audience members suffer from the clench and we’re also treated to a special performance by Reggie Watts himself!
