    Moshe Kasher's Personal Hell (Rerun)

    Moshe Kasher's Personal Hell (Rerun)

    Jesse David Fox and Moshe Kasher deconstruct a joke about heaven from Moshe's 2013 "Live From Oakland" special -- it's a bit that's evolved over time, as he first tried a much shorter version of the joke on his 2009 album. They talk about religion, Moshe's 2017 Comedy Central show "Problematic", and how Moshe mastered the art of "highbrow-lowbrow."
    BONUS: At the end of the episode, we've got a special preview of Moshe's new comedy album, Crowd Surfing, which comes out January 24, 2020. Live in Oakland is available on all streaming platforms.
    Featuring: Moshe Kasher (@MosheKasher).
    Host: Jesse David Fox (@JesseDavidFox) is Senior Editor at Vulture.

    Nikki Glaser asserted herself as a ruthless and talented roaster at Comedy Central's Roast of Rob Lowe in 2016, so it was no surprise that she was invited back for Bruce Willis in 2018. Nikki walks Jesse through the roast process from start to finish, explaining the massive undertaking that is writing effective insults.

    I Think You Should Leave's Focus Group Sketch

    I Think You Should Leave's Focus Group Sketch

    Ok, here we go. The most requested joke/sketch/idea for this show, ever.
    Recorded live from Vulture Festival 2019 in LA, it's the first ever "Live Oral History" featuring one of the year's best pieces of comedy.
    "Ford Focus Group" is a sketch from Netflix's I Think You Should Leave. It stars writers and creators Tim Robinson and Zach Kanin, along with Ruben Rabasa, who plays a boisterous but endearing participant in a focus group for a car development. Hilarity ensues.
    Director Akiva Schaffer also joins to discuss the creation and execution of this sketch, from development to writing to casting to shooting to reception.
    Also included: Someone with only great car ideas.
    Watch the sketch here.
