Studio: Will Sasso
What It Is
Comedian Will Sasso and a variety of his comedian friends get together for a quick chat.
New episodes come out sporadically, sometimes two or three a week, sometimes with more than a week between. Each episode is, you got it, around ten minutes in length. The iTunes archive has the most recent 300 episodes.
What About It
I really, really love this podcast. The ten minute restriction forces the show to be super fast-paced and Sasso and company are typically up to the task. Also, if you happen to hit an episode that’s a dud, you don’t have to waste an hour figuring it out. By the time you figure out that this one’s a dud, it’s almost over. Not that duds are that common. Typically, this show has me rolling on the floor.
Your attention span just can’t tolerate those eleven minute podcasts.
Avoid Like the Plague If
You like your comedy like you like your molasses.
Best Entry Point
I’m going to recommend a back to back pair of episodes from back in February of this year. First off, there’s Big Huge 20 Year Old Piece of ****, in which Sasso and Bryan Callen swap stories about their early years in the comedy business, which culminates in one of the most hilarious songs I’ve ever heard in my life. The next episode is Toki Fong Returns in which Bobby Lee guests as one of his most ridiculous characters, the incredibly offensive Chinese stereotype Toki Fong. Your mileage on Toki Fong may vary depending on *ahem* how seriously you take things that are specifically not to be taken seriously (and there are a lot of you out there for some reason). Anyway, good place to start.
