Episode notes

Amelie Gillette, Travis McElroy, Pippa Evans and James Acaster join host, Dave Holmes for an end of 2014 special.

We discuss favourite falling down videos, argue over which nation has claim over Nicki Minaj’s butt, make a weird number of references to Sister Act and did we mention the paedos?

Other useful links this week:

Amelie Gillette wants to plug the remaining episodes of Selfie playing out every Tuesday on Hulu and recommends The Comeback, which may as well be the official HBO show of International Waters at this point we’ve recommended it so often.

Travis McElroy wants to plug My Brother, My Brother and Me, The Adventure Zone and Bunker Buddies and recommends Sawbones, his little brother’s comedy videogame videos on Polygon.com, Andie Bolt’s Warrior Lady web series Red Baroness and Bunker Buddies theme tune composer Brentalfloss. Travis would also like to recommend the new Walk the Moon album and promises that he has no vested interest in the band.

Pippa Evans is on Twitter @iampippaevans and wants to plug her Christmas single. Pippa recommends great London charity, Hackney Pirates.

James Acaster wants to plug his live dates and his web series, Sweet Home Ketteringa . He’s on Twitter @JamesAcaster and want’s to recommend the new Retro Spankees’ album Meagre Vengeance.

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 The New Basement Tapes – Spotify users can the album here.

About the show

International Waters is a pop culture comedy quiz show where land laws do not apply. Join host Dave Holmes 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.
