Bullseye

Chris Gethard on Fighting

| 0 comments

Here's a clip from next week's Bullseye (or more accurately a clip that was cut from next week's Bullseye but that we couldn't bear to leave on the cutting room floor).

It seems that comedian Chris Gethard genuinely believes that he could potentially win the UFC Welterweight crown. And that it would be worth fighting the current champion, a terrifying man named George St. Pierre, just in case he's right.

Judge John Hodgman Episode 47: The Carry On Carryings-On

| 7 comments

Keep Calm and Carry on.

Blair and her sister Lisa both travel frequently for business and pleasure (occasionally together). Blair always brings a carry-on instead of checking a bag, since her trips are usually of a shorter duration, perhaps two to three days. She is 5'1" and sometimes needs assistance getting her bag into the overhead bin. A helpful person usually offers their services; if not, Blair is not opposed to asking for help from a fellow passenger.

Lisa feels that if a person does not have the ability to handle their own carry-on bag and get into the compartment without assistance, they have the option of, and should choose to, check their baggage.

So, who is free to carry on and who won't help you move along? Only one man can decide, but be careful!- contents in the overhead bin may have shifted during the flight- on the next Judge John Hodgman!

BULLSEYE: Chris Lilley, Creator of HBO's Angry Boys

| 0 comments

Chris Lilley, the Australian comedian and showrunner, talks about his new series Angry Boys. The show pushes boundaries with his faux-documentary of characters in different stages of life and scenes of adolescent torment. Lilley plays six characters, occasionally side by side, a natural continuation of his work in the acclaimed Summer Heights High. You can catch Angry Boys on HBO on Sunday nights.
