#417: "You're Gay" w/ Matteo Lane
Standup Comedian Matteo Lane comes on Ari Shaffir’s Skeptic Tank this week to tell me all about gay culture. It’s FASCINATING. And it’s changed so much since I first discovered gays back in college. Matteo Lane is one of the most interesting and rational people to talk to at the back table of the Comedy Cellar and I’m glad to finally get him on the podcast. We talked about Prep, blasting loads into butts, Grinder, cheating, and anything else I could think of to ask him about what it’s like being gay these days. Such a fun one. ◆ Check out Matteo's podcast "Inside The Closet with Matteo Lane & Emma Willmann"!

#416: "Serious as a Heart Attack" w/ Keith Robinson
Standup comedian Keith Robinson joins standup comedian Ari Shaffir this week to tell me about his stroke. I had a lot of questions. And Keith was forthcoming and hilarious. My favorite kind of guest. Keith is one of the most giving comedians on the planet. You can trace tons of great comics who point to him as one of the biggest influences on their careers and their lives. He looks out for young comedians, especially the ones from Philadelphia. It really makes me want to work harder to help younger comics. And I already do plenty. But Keith Robinson makes me want to do even more. ✦ Follow Keith on Twitter: https://twitter.com/1keithrobinson ✦ For all of Ari's projects and accounts: https://linktr.ee/RIPAriShaffir Music: Toni Braxton - Unbreak My Heart The Strokes - Is This It?

#415: Baby Skeletons w/ Adrienne Iapalucci
Donate to Adrienne on Paypal Donate to Adrienne on Venmo We’re trying something different this week. I, Ari Shaffir, am bringing you an entire album of one of my favorite comedians in the world. For free. Adrienne Iapalucci has been opening for me for the last couple years. Anyone who saw my Jew hour and thought, “Fuck, that lady was dark” knows what I’m talking about. You know why I refer to her as “The Dark Queen.” And that’s what she is. Standup comedian Adrienne Iapalucci is a cold-blooded dark joke writer. Following her every night forced me to improve my punchlines. I’m not exaggerating. She’s that good. If you saw her open for me, you know I’m right. This pandemic has hit her really hard, though. She was about to start headlining so much that she wasn’t going to be available to me and my crowds any more. And then this virus changed everything. It took away our ability to perform. There’s no more income. She’s seriously looking for day jobs and wondering how she’s going to pay her rent. And now she’s got a new album out called “Baby Skeletons” that she recorded before the pandemic. So here’s what we’re going to try. I’m letting you hear it for free. And I want you to give Adrienne what you think that was worth to you. If I were you, I’d start with $1 before you even listen to it. Because any album is worth that much. But then once you’ve heard it, I think you’ll agree it’s worth a lot more. And I understand that not everybody is in the same financial position as everybody else. So maybe you can only spare $7.00. Or maybe you’re doing great and you can spare a 20 or a 50. You gotta decide for yourself how much you laughed at what took her years to make and how much you want to support comics like this putting out their own material. Show this podcast to your friends and tell them to support her, too. I do this kind of thing for the Edinburgh Comedy Festival. The richer people end up paying more. The poorer people end up paying less. And overall I make enough money to justify me going out there to Scotland for a month. Enough that I can justify going out there. More than I made in a month of road gigs 10 years ago. And more than Adrienne makes now on the road. But the coolest part of it for me was how the poor college kids and the adults with real jobs could all come together to enjoy something they all liked; my degenerate comedy. After the shows, I would stand in the back with a bucket. And people would toss in whatever they had. When I was off, I definitely felt that in the bucket. But no matter what people gave me, it was cool to have them say thank you as they passed, and know that no matter what they put in there, they were putting it in because they wanted to AFTER knowing what they had gotten in terms of the show I put on. So that’s what we’re doing with Adrienne. All the money you Venmo her or Paypal her will go directly to her. If she makes enough, she can use the money to film her next special. Adrienne is an introverted joke writer. And the standup she does end up doing on big platforms gets censored to hell. That Parkland joke was the number one joke of 2018. Most NY comics agreed with that. And they wouldn’t even let her do it on a dirty comedy on Netflix. That’s the state we’re in for standup. If she was as big as Dave Chappelle or Bill Burr it wouldn’t have been a problem. So you guys get to hear it here instead. You gotta make the world into what you want it to be by supporting that vision with your dollars. The Music The Misfits - Last Caress

#413: My 2020 Year In Review Part 7 of 7 - Resolutions and Goals for 2021 - Ari Shaffir's Skeptic Tank podcast -
I try to do these public resolutions every year. That way I'm more likely to stand by them. Everybody should make resolutions. They're not lame. They're goals. It's important to verbalize where you want to go this year and what you want to do. These are the goals of me, Ari Shaffir. Please leave in the comments your own goals. Maybe we can steal some of each other's. Here are mine in no order: Read two books Finish writing my book Make a standup special for someone Go to 2 new countries (maybe 3) 100,000 YouTube subscribers 3,000 Patreon subscribers Reach out to comics going through public trouble Remember the great parts of 2020 Please sign up for My Patreon. Not many more till I start my follow up on there to each Skeptic Tank and answer any questions the patrons have about the episode. I get how frustrating I can be with my half finished stories and questions I forgot to ask. This'll be your chance to hold me accountable. And starting today, there's exclusive merch on there available on to the Patrons and nobody else. Patreon.com/AriShaffir Thank you to our sponsor, hammocks. Hammocks are like sleeping on air.

The Music Reginald Omas Mamode IV - In Search of Balance I really love this song. Nothing more to say about it. I don't know much about the artist. But at very minimum the guy nailed it at least one time, which most artists never get to.

#413: Year In Review (6 of 7) - Leaving America - Ari Shaffir's Skeptic Tank podcast
With the winter approaching, and the threat of lockdowns looming, I decided to leave the country to do some exploring. Ari Shaffir loves to travel. And what a better time than now. It's scary to do, but once I made the decision it became a lot easier. This episode of My 2020 Year In Review podcast breaks down why I decided to hit the road, how I chose where I would go, and what things are like where I went. My first week was scary, just like every time I travel. But then I settled in and figured out all the best places to get food poisoning, how to properly wrap up pooped-on toilet paper for the garbage since you're not allowed to flush it here, and the process of finding weed. This runs all the way through December 31 and the most unique New Year's celebration I've ever taken part in. Please sign up for my patreon! Bonus content all the time. Plus access to exclusive merch. And early access to some of the podcasts. And the main thing is it helps keep me sane to know that even if I lose all my sponsors, I'll still be ok to keep making the content I find interesting instead of being forced to make things that'll pay my rent. Patreon.com/AriShaffir Thank you to our sponsor, $3 meals. At $3 meals you won't believe how much food they give you for $3. A soup, main course with side and tiny salad, sensible sized desert, and a big fresh fruit juice. It's nuts. You expect it to be like $15-$20 but then when you ask for la cuenta and they hit you with that $6 para dos people you're like, "whaaaaaaaat?" And they're available all over the country. Pretty much any time you get a lunch by the side of the road, that's what you're getting. I love it here. And our other sponsor, Terrible Internet. With terrible internet, it becomes nearly impossible to plan podcasts. Terrible internet is available all over this country. You don't even have to seek it out. It'll find you. And remember, when your AirBnB host says the internet is "really good." they mean it's really good in relation to the rest of the country, which means it's terrible. And if you get terrible internet, make sure to use promo code: "bang on the desk in anger till your hand breaks every time you lose the signal in the middle of a damn 6th and Jump podcast" for nothing off your order. Terrible Internet; it'll make you appreciate America. The Music James Brown - Let’s Make This Christmas Mean Something This Year (Parts 1 and 2) I listened to James Brown's Christmas album on Christmas day in Cuenca. Super underrated album. I had a tree for only the second time in my life. With a mask I burnt on New Year's Eve on top of the tree like it was a star. Stockings behind it. And I was playing cards, drinking a hot cinnamon drink called canelazo, my dog there, hanging out in a town in the Andes. And when that chorus came on talking about "Let's... Make Christmas... Mean something... This year," I just felt so happy. Like, yeah man. I am making it mean something this year. And let's all make it mean something next year, too. How about it?

#413 My 2020 Year In Review 5/7 - The Skanks Election - Ari Shaffir's Skeptic Tank Legion of Skanks Luis Gomez Big Jay Oakerson Dave Smith Shane Gillis Zac Amico Joe Derosa No More Weeks
I almost forgot about the election that saved comedy. Not the presidential election. No, that doesn't really matter. We're still gonna be at war with 7 countries and watch the rich get richer and the poor get poorer regardless of who won that. I'm talking about the Legion of Skanks election. I decided to run for the president of someone else's podcast. I'm Ari Shaffir, and I stand for Mayhem. Every week, I would offer a different sacrifice at the alter of comedy. And in return, the gods of laughs rewarded me with the highest office in the land. During this recap, I didn't even remember some of the best stuff that happened. There was way more about this than I remembered while avoiding sheep poop. I forgot making Derosa wait downstairs in the sweaty basement just to get betrayed like a chump when he came upstairs. I forgot getting the best celebrity endorsements and then getting Big Jay's family and Luis's son to endorse me. Dave Smith's jerk of a daughter refused to betray him. I forgot the lie detector. I forgot hosting the debates and my announcement that I'd be running. I think I even forgot that I wore a different suit all 8 times I came on. If you want to watch the recap of the Skanks election, there's a 2 hour video about it here that I'll link to on the YouTube video of this podcast. I'll put a box link to it at the end of the video. Thank you to our sponsor: Dan Soder. Because of the generous contributions made by the Soder Superpac, I, Ari Shaffir, was able to win the most important election of our lifetime.

#413: My 2020 Year In Review 4/7 - Best Summer Ever
In part 4 of My 2020 Year in Review podcast, I talk about returning to New York City. I am standup comedian Ari Shaffir. And I'm only a standup comedian while I'm doing standup comedy. Otherwise, I'm just the internet's greatest yogi. Things in New York were starting to open up again. So I made my return. And what a great decision that was. New York was ALIVE. People were drinking in the streets. All our comedian friends were hanging out. They say crime was up, and if crime includes drug use, then yeah, my crime was WAAAAY up. Molly flowed. Booze flowed. Weed flowed. The cokeheads and the potheads came to terms with each other and met in the middle at the bar. Everybody was happy. And standup was the coolest it's been in decades. Comics were responding to things. Not just doing well written jokes about nothing. Now we had BLM, Covid, the elections, Ellen, and so much more to talk about. It felt important. I loved it! We all gotta figure out a way to hold onto the good parts of this summer when next summer rolls around. Please subscribe to my Patreon. If you were a member, you could've heard this podcast over a week ago. Plus at patreon.com/arishaffir there's exclusive merch and bonus podcasts for patreon members only. Thank you to our sponsor, walktails. It's like a capri sun pouch full of booze. Imagine a pouch of margarita to go. Yeah. And they were available at just about every bar in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Walktails. I didn't invent the word, but I love the word. Eventually they made the bars serve food with them so bars would give you chips or a half a bologna sandwich or even a single tortilla. I barfed outside so many times! The Music Pinc Louds - Shake It The Pinc Louds are the spirit of creativity in New York. They are a fake band and they are at the forefront of a movement to steal the city back from the rich and make New York cool again. You should see them live. You can listen online until you get that chance, but once you get that chance, take it. Claudi is a busker. And busker's play. And the Pinc Louds play well. And they play loud. And they bring the party. Get a tall boy and come hang. Check the Pinc Louds instagram to see when they're playing next and then get on a bike and make your way over.

#413 My Year In Review 3/7 - Moving Into My Parents' Basement
Covid changed a lot for a lot of people. Bezos is killing it more than ever. And whoever owns Purell. But for the rest of us things went off the rails. With the March lockdown looming, standup comedian and yoga guru Ari Shaffir decided to take his dog and go live with his parents out in the suburbs. In part 3 of my 2020 Year in Review podcast, I talk about living with my parents. My NYC apartment didn't seem like the best place to be forced to stay inside all day. So I left the city I love to have a unique and lovely time with my mom and dad. To get to hang out with your mother and father for that amount of time, as an adult, is an experience I'll never get to have again and I'm eternally thankful to that bat dude in China for making it happen. My dog loved it, too. All she did all day was figure out ways to escape the yard and run into the woods to chase deer. While my friends were busy signing hundred million dollar deals, I was busy nailing mesh fencing to trees. Wouldn't trade places. And I pondered that every afternoon, drinking wine on the deck while watching the sunset with my mom. Please sign up for my Patreon.com/AriShaffir for bonus content. You coulda heard this episode a week ago if you were on there. Plus exlusive merch offers and patreon-only podcasts. Thank you to our sponsor, rosay. Rosay. For when you're too old to party but you still want to catch a buzz in the burbs, think rosay. It's the wine you're afraid to admit you love. And our other sponsor, Outfield Fencing. When you want to keep your dog in the yard until the moment you go inside for 2 freaking minutes to go pee, think outfield fencing. It's strong, totally destructible if your dog chews on it a little bit or a deer runs into it, and easy to run under. Outfield fencing. It's really just for baseball. The Music Big Freedia - Rona Rona If you don't know Big Freedia, you're missing out. You can pretty much play any 10 of her songs in a row and you've got an instant dance party. She's the queen of bounce, the diva of dance, the shake it up shaman, and the party princess. Go look her up. Tell her to come on the podcast to talk about the history of New Orleans Bounce.

#413: My 2020 Year In Review 2/7 - Troll of the Year
Troll of the Year. On part 2 of My 2020 Year in Review podcast I talk about how I brought a city to its knees. With a few expertly timed and crafted words I made Los Angeles crumble. It was hilarious. Even the comedy world wasn’t immune from my power. While most standups laughed and were tremendously supportive, a few comedians fell to my power. Some who had previously held that jokes were always just jokes, for the first time in their lives took the side of the censors. They had never been so expertly triggered before and they lost their minds. And we all laughed at them. It was one my greatest trolls, if not my greatest. It made hypocrites out of the mighty and showed the world how much they overvalued the lives of celebrities. Their anger was my applause. Their threats of violence were my standing ovation. I am God. The Music Distillers - City of Angels Please subscribe to my Patreon.com/AriShaffir so that I can keep making jokes I find funny without having to worry too much about the massive amounts of money that it keeps costing me. You also get bonus stuff. Like you could've listened to this podcast a week earlier than everybody else. And there's bonus podcasts available only to the patrons. Like travel stories, Q&A's, sex advice, and arrest stories. Plus exclusive merch. And if I get to 5000 subscribers, I don't think I'm gonna do ads any more. So do me a favor and sign up!

#412: The Peoples Revolution (with John Dennehy)@JDennehy_Writes
John Dennehy came over to talk to me about Ecuador. Specifically about the 2005 People's Revolution that toppled their government. John was there for all of it. He even helped set up road blocks during the protests. Really interesting stuff that seems kind of extra relevant this week, huh? He also told me hella stuff about Ecuador. From the food, to the roads, to the customs, to the crazy obsession with 2 dollar bills. It was a crash course in a country that I desperately needed a crash course on. It's useful and interesting stuff about an amazing paisa. John wrote a book that I just finished reading called "Illegal." It's about being deported, about illegally crossing back over that border again and again, about love, about my balls, about standing up for what you believe in, and it's about following your heart. There's a ton of ideology hidden inside the plot that had me thinking about stuff all week after reading what he wrote. Pick up "Illegal" by John Dennehy at Good Reads or at Amazon. And if you read it, tell him you read it because of this podcast and he'll tell all his friends at the UN what a powerful interviewer I am.

#411: Tim Dillon - "Eat The Rich, Gas The Poor" (Intro/outro with Joe List and Ari Shaffir
Tim Dillon got together with me to help me understand wealthy people. They're not like you and I. Sometimes I hate them and sometimes I am in awe of them. Tim broke down all the reasons they suck, and also all the reasons the poor aren't much better. Tim Dillon always has great insights into stuff like this. And he's been obsessed with the super wealthy since I've met him. Joe List joined me for the introduction and outro to speak a little on the same subject and then we took some calls from people who left messages about what it means to be rich or to be poor.

#410: Auto joErotic A Fixation with Joe Rogan (plus Ryan Oneill joins for the intro)
Joe Rogan loves two things. Fast cars and dank weed. And he's owned plenty of both. Joe and I talked about where his automobile obsession came from, the coolest cars he's ever driven, road handies, and much more. Joe smoked a fat cigar as I was watched with jealous eyes as I was stuck inside what looked like a Chechnyan prison where they had a no-smoking policy. We talked about the old days vs new days of the Store and how cool it is that comedy is dangerous again. Rogan and I were both sitting behind tables the whole time so there's no way to know what our pants situation was for this. You'll learn a ton about cars in this one and it was legit a hella great time laughing and talking to my buddy. Valpo's finest, Ryan "Dr Dingus" O'neill, joined me for the intro and outro. I amazed Ryan with stories of real-life freak show, Dog Boy. Talked about cars a little with him too, and then we took some callers at the end of the outro to get the best road sex stories among some other fun topics. You will learn absolutely nothing during the intro and outro. It was a legit hella great time laughing and talking to my buddy but for real, your life will be in no way enriched by the intro and outro to this podcast. You might actually become worse as a person for listening to me and O'neill. Again, quite funny. But zero social merit. Thank you to the Stereo App for sponsoring today's podcast.

We got into why to chop it off or not, the bar scene, Katelyn Jenner, how hard we like to fuck, some history, and a bunch more. God, I wish you could talk to people in real life this way.

#406: Oh, The Horror! (Zac Amico)
Zac Amico told me some amazing stories about producing low budget horror movies. Zac is a hilarious comic and podcaster and he's also a producer of films for Troma, one of the greatest pulp horror makers of all time. We talked about the history of this kind of campy, low budget horror. Why they always seem to have ditzy bimbos. Where the ridiculous titles come from. All of it. Plus I did the intro from an abandoned cemetery for maximum effect. Watch Zac's horror podcast, Zac Amico's Midnight Spookshow,. catch him hosting Catalyst Wrestling or follow him on instagram at @ZacIsNotFunny. I'd tell you to go watch his movie that he made, Shakespeare's Shitstorm, but the last screening happened on Friday so unless it becomes a cult classic, you're gonna have trouble watching it. But I heard it was really good. You can watch the entire podcast at YouTube.com/AriShaffir if you want to see what monsters Zac and I actually look like. And please subscribe to my Patreon.com/AriShaffir for bonus content, a way longer introduction to this episode, and really just o support me so I can keep doing the outsider stuff I like doing sometimes without having to worry about the financial impact it'll have on my life every time I lose all my sponsors just because I love crossing the line 3 times a year or so.

#405: War Stories (Jake Hanrahan)
Jake Hanrahan talked to me about conflict reporting. He goes to war zones and tries to bring back word of what's actually going on in these areas. It's crazy. He brings back tons of footage. Look at PopularFront.co and you'll see what I'm talking about. He's not even welcome in a lot of these places. Once they put him in a Turkish prison! Really interesting stuff in this one. You gotta excuse the sound a little. I recorded in the wrong button on my audio recorder so I had to end up using the laptop mic and it's not as good as the regular Sennheiser mic. You'll get used to it but the first 2 minutes you're gonna get annoyed. I'm telling you, this one is worth the trouble. Jake Hanrahan has some crazy stories! Go support Jake in his quest to bring the truth about wars. Become patron. You can do $1, $5, 0r $10 and no matter what you're going to be helping a real independent guy do his thing.
