Start at Weird Al

I started with the Weird Al episode and after crying from laughter 5 minutes in I knew this podcast was gold.

Love this!!!

If you’re an entertainment junkie like I am, then this is the podcast for you! The knowledge of Gil and Frank is second to none. They get “in the know” guests who really dish the stories on the celebrities we grew up watching in a raucous and hilarious format. The podcast has been my constant car companion for several months since I discovered it and keeps me laughing every day. I highly recommend it!!

Show biz Trivia and Obscure Tidbits Shared With Lots of Laughs

This podcast is a keeper. I personally can’t stand Gilbert doing his unfunny standup and he’s pretty foul mouthed here too. But he knows his show biz biz and Frank is the perfect knowledgeable foil. The two hosts always bring out the best in their Great guests.
