J.B. Smoove on Curb Your Enthusiasm, writing on Saturday Night Live and more

J.B. Smoove is without a doubt one of the funniest people we've ever had on Bullseye.

He got his start in television as one of the stars of Def Comedy Jam in the mid-90's. In the early aughts he became a writer on Saturday Night Live. J.B. wrote sketches like a commercial for "Tylenol Extreme," and a hypothetical remake of Norman Lear's "Good Times." He's probably best known for his role as Leon on Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Currently, you can check him out in Spider-Man: Far From Home. In the film, J.B. plays Peter Parker's teacher, Julius Dell. He has some really funny moments as Parker's chaperone.

J.B. joins us to talk about his time on SNL. He'll explain how an audition to be a featured cast member actually landed him a job as a writer instead. We'll hear about a few of his favorite sketches that never made it to air.

He'll also talk about his work on Curb Your Enthusiasm, and why he always goes to an audition in character. Plus, he'll tell us about the time he told Howard Stern, and we quote: "You can't eat spaghetti on an open patio." Join us to learn exactly what he means!

When he's not working on screen he keeps busy on the road. He tries to test out as much new material as possible. You can see him on tour all over the country this summer and fall. Check out his website for latest dates.

A heads up to listeners, this episode contains many censored expletives throughout the interview.

Minority Korner

The Wonder Twins of Podcasting have transformed into Amelia & Badelia, and one of them... we'll say Badelia (James) explains the entire plot of Beauty & The Beast- the live action version to Nnekay... or rather Amelia (no spoilers because it's pretty much the same as the animated version- but James- we mean Badelia is in to it)! Let's go over the chronological timeline of Lil Kim's face. What happened? She was so cute! We must talk about A Wrinkle in Time and how amazeballs it's going to be! Speaking of Amazing things: Spider-Man! But not The Amazing Spider-Man with angst Andrew Garfield (who Badelia ((James) was a big a fan of)) but Spider-Man Homecoming is swinging into our hearts (see what we did there)? James/Badelia continues the exploration of Queen Califia and the California Blacks from last episode. If they did exist, what happened, and where did they go? If you got a kid in your life Amelia (AKA Nnekay) has just the thing for their summer reading with another booklisticle: Social Justice & Activism Books for the younger folks. Yay!
