Moe. Larry. Curly. Shemp. Joe. Curly Joe. Emil. Ted.

The Three Stooges are a cornerstone of American comedy, and people feel very strongly about which knucklehead sits at the top of the heap!

Thankfully for Mark and Hal, Billy West can not only impersonate all of the Stooges, but knows almost everything there is to know about them, so join our hosts and Billy as they weave in and out of the rich history of the Stooges to crown the king of the morons!

Mike Judge on Silicon Valley, Beavis & Butt-Head and Office Space & the Challenges of Being a Showrunner

Mike Judge entered the world of animation with little more than a 16mm Bolex film camera, an audio recorder and a stopwatch. In the early nineties, his animated shorts were extremely popular as part of touring animation shows including Spike and Mike’s Sick and Twisted Animation Festival. These shorts served as the birthplace for some of his most memorable characters, including the iconic Beavis and Butt-Head.

Beavis and Butt-Head were awkward and naive teenage boys, whose vocabulary seemed limited to a series of snickers and grunts. However, the show became a cultural touchstone as well as a lightning rod of criticism for conservative social critics.

The show led to more opportunities for Judge both in film and television. They included the hit animated series, King of the Hill and forays into films with the cult classics Office Space and Idiocracy. His latest show, Silicon Valley is in its third season on HBO.

Mike Judge joined Jesse to talk about the parallels between Hollywood and Silicon Valley, his early years in animation and how the character of Homer Simpson helped him maintain the integrity of his own animated patriarch, Hank Hill.

Silicon Valley airs Sunday nights at 10pm on HBO.

Catastrophe's Sharon Horgan on Creating Flawed Characters and Writing Your Own Sex Scenes

Sharon Horgan has a knack for the creating shows that reveal her characters as determined, funny, sexy, complex and at times, very flustered. Her comedy is more than a series of jokes (though there are plenty of them), and includes insightful observations into what it means to be a professional woman trying to negotiate her other roles of lover, wife and mother. In other words, a real person. You can see that in full display on her latest show, Catastrophe which streams on Amazon Prime.

Though she may be relatively new to American audiences, she has proven herself a talented actress, writer and producer and enjoyed success with her previous show, Pulling which she co-wrote and starred in. Though it ran only for two seasons on British television, it was nominated for several television and comedy awards and established her as a modern comedic voice.

Sharon Horgan sat down with Jesse to talk about getting past the awkwardness of writing (and then having to film) sex scenes with her co-star, the challenge of showing the evolution of a relationship before and after having kids and why she likes playing a character who can sometimes come off as a jerk.

Catastrophe is in its second season and can be streamed on Amazon Prime.

Keith Powell

Karen Kilgariff, Keith Powell, Katy Brand and Gareth Gwynn join host, Dave Holmes for a c-bomb littered riot of secret spilling and Gwyneth dissing, comedy quizzing.

Note: The UK team weren't able to take part in the secret spilling part – apparently calling the show International Waters doesn't offer the level of protection from English laws that one might have hoped.

Karen Kilgariff wants to plug her podcasts Do You Need A Ride and My Favorite Murder as well as her recent appearance in Zach Galifianakis' new show, Baskets and recommends Julia Davies' TV show Hunderby.

Keith Powell wants to plug his web series Keith Broke His Leg and recommends Jeff Nichol's new movie Midnight Special.

Katy Brand wants to plug her novel, Brenda Monk is Funny and her up-coming Edinburgh Fringe show, I Was A Teenage Christian. Katy recommends Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney's TV show, Catastrophe.

Gareth Gwynn wants to plug his TV show Bull and recommends former IW guest, Ben Partridge's new MaxFun podcast, Beef and Dairy Network.

And finally, Dave Holmes is on Twitter @DaveHolmes and hosts his live quiz show, The Friday Forty at LA’s Meltdown Theatre on the second Friday of every month. Dave would like to recommend Chris Gethard's new podcast Beautiful Anonymous.

You can let us know what you think of International Waters and suggest guests through our Facebook group or on Twitter.

Written by Sarah Morgan and Asterios Kokkinos, recorded at MaxFunHQ in LA and GuiltFreePost in London, produced by Jennifer Marmor and Colin Anderson.
