Ari Shaffir's Skeptic Tank
A comedy podcast to help better understand humanity and also to make fart jokes.

Mike Vecchione had me over to the apartment he shares with his partner Dan Soder to talk about his first trip to the Orient. He went to China for two weeks. What happens when you make your first trip to Asia is your mind just about explodes with new stimuli. So I was lucky to get Mike on mic as soon as he got home. 

 

Mike is an amazing comic and his new album, The Worst Kind Of Thoughtful, is out now. 

 

I'm going to be in Austin September 19-22 with Adrienne Iapalucci and in Phoenix October 27 with Big Jay, Schaub, Callen, and Theo Von. Go to AriShaffir.com for tickets to either show and my November/December European tour.

 

This episode is brought to you by nobody. Enjoy, you worthless commies.

Tim Dillon and Dan St Germain came over to talk about conspiracy theories. Both those guys are way into that stuff so that's all they talk about anyway. 

 

Get Dan's brand new comedy album, No Real Winners Here at DanStGermain.net or wherever you buy albums. I think I said 500 times that it was called Bad At The Good Times but that was his old album. I messed up. Get No Real Winners Here. I mean, get both if you want. He's been funny for a long time. But definitely get No Real Winners Here. At Danstgermain.net. Jesus. The whole reason we even got the idea to do the podcast in the first place was to use the opportunity to hype his album. And then I didn't even get that part right. I mean, come on. So please help me make up for that by making No Real Winners Here the top album on iTunes. Get it. It'll be a good purchase regardless of my mess-up. But now it'll also help get me out of a mistake. Please. Or if you don't buy albums, at least go listen to it on Spotify and tell Dan how you like it. No Real Winners Here. 

 

And Watch Tim Dillon on the Netflix 15 minutes sets. Streaming now. 

 

I'm in Edinburgh at the Fringe Festival every day at 6pm at the Hive. It smells like vomit and there's no cell phone reception. I love it there. You can get tickets ahead of time before they sell out and then pay what you want after the show. Or, I save as many seats as I can for walkups for no charge. But get there EARLY!

In September I'll be in Austin at Cap City Comedy Club. October in Phoenix, November through Europe. Tickets on sale at arishaffir.com/tour

 

Oh! And I forgot to remind you. Shroomfest is August 25-27 this year. Last minute efforts right now to get supplies. See you on the other siiiiide.

Andy Curtain made his way from Shanghai to Montreal to tell me about the darkest sides of life in China. He's lived in Shanghai for a decade now and he REALLY knows what it's all about. Fun discussion with an intro appearance from my Edinburgh Fringe roommates.

I'm in Edinburgh from August 2-26 every day at 6pm at the Hive.

Go to AriShaffir.com or AriShaffir.com/tour for tickets to see me in Austin, Phoenix, England, Iceland, Norway, Germany, Ireland, Copenhagen, Belgium, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and Sweden.
