EHG 158: Standing Up With I'm Dying Up Here

Omar Gallaga returns to talk about Showtime's new period dramedy!

As I'm Dying Up Here, the series adaptation of a non-fiction book, premieres on Showtime, Omar Gallaga returns to talk about its portrayal of the L.A. comedy scene in the '70s (and precisely how awful its opening credits sequence actually is). Around the dial stops at The Leftovers, Fear The Walking Dead, Amazon's documentary Long Strange Trip, and a retro surprise from Dave. Omar makes the case for us to induct the Ren & Stimpy episode "Space Madness"/"The Boy Who Cried Rat" into the Canon; and then after a discussion of the week's Winner and Loser, it's on to a Game Time that might really make you sick. Get ready to shell out for the two-drink minimum and listen!
