Shane Torres's Guy Fieri

This week, host Jesse David Fox sits down with New York stand-up comedian Shane Torres to discuss one of the greatest jokes of the last decade - Torres’s now legendary defense of Guy Fieri. 


Torres started working on the joke in 2016, after seeing Fieri used as a cliche example of someone who sucked. Quickly he realized he was onto something special and that there was room to build on it. A year later, the result was both hilarious and surprisingly poignant. After going viral in the summer of 2017, the joke forever changed the perception of Guy Fieri in our culture, revealing the power of comedy.
