Movies and TV recommended in this episode:
The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith
On August 25th we will be recording special live tapings of Jordan, Jesse Go! and International Waters in London and we want to invite all of our friends in the UK to the show!
Jordan, Jesse Go! 2pm. Tickets!
A very special live edition of Jordan, Jesse, GO!, the freewheeling comedy podcast about life and everything else. Your hosts are Jesse Thorn, "America's Radio Sweetheart," and Jordan Morris, "Boy Detective," who are in the UK because they thought the Olympics happened here every year...
There will be a brilliant special guest TBC.
International Waters 4:30pm. Tickets!
International Waters is the pop culture comedy quiz show where land laws do not apply.
Join host Jesse Thorn and competing teams of world-famous comedians from the US and UK in a hilarious and lively test of pop culture knowledge (and the ability to make up baloney when that knowledge fails).
It's part panel show, part trivia quiz and all laughs. It's also a little embarrassed it wrote that last sentence.
We'll be announcing our teams closer to the taping but we have some GREAT people ALMOST lined-up!
The Phoenix, Cavendish Square, London United Kingdom
The venue opens 30 minutes before each recording. The phoenix has good food, good booze and there's going to be a MaxFun meet-up afterwards.
