Every week standup comedian / writer / notorious goofball Kevin Anderson interviews his favorite comedians and any number of Los Angeles' strangest characters or "influential experts."
Learn about the LA comedy scene, the weirdos that inhabit it, the dingy dives they perform in, and the lives they lead in a riotous, mostly improvised hour-or-so session of comedy goodness.
247: I Tip My Hair To You
Welcome back to Bleak in Review! In this episode, Kevin goes hard on mobile games and the ads contained within them. Then, Kevin and Matt sit down for a riveting one on one in which they discuss Big Flag, Kevin's foster kitties, bad Twitter people, and much much more!
246: Rust Buttonlips (w/ John Fahy)
Welcome back to a truly Bleak week for a podcast! In this episode, Kevin laments the *new* shooting and illustrates a fascist "utopia." Then, Matt and Kevin welcome back prospective third mic John Fahy for a riotous, pre-tragedy romp with discussions surrounding Vin Scully, barf bags, and goofy headstones. This episode is brought to you by Gicky Rervagious' Cancellation College!
245: Don't You Forget About Dre (w/ John Fahy & Radostin Zahariev)
Kevin kicks off this week's Bleak with chatter about American injustices and comedian assaults. Then, Matt and Kevin welcome comedians John Fahy and Radostin Zahariev back to the podcast for a no-holds barred riff sesh on all types of silly nonsense. Too much to describe, really, but it's a real doozy of a good time.
244: CD-ROM Dass (or, We're Back?)
We're back! Sorta! Bleak in Review returns with an out-of-nowhere podcast in which Kevin prattles about his podcast sabbatical, comedy drama, and the infamous award show punch. Then, Matt Brousseau returns to do a whole dang episode with Kevin, just like the good ol' days! They speak on impulsive thoughts, marionette theaters, and a whole lot more. This is just a goofy romp with two pals, and perhaps the beginning of a new era for this infrequently updated podcast feed! Enjoy, dear Bleakling!

Welcome back to FunHinged! In this installment of Hollis and Kevin's continuing efforts to unearth the strangest content available, the duo is talking about James Wan's 2021 psychotic backwards boy action-horror romp, Malignant! Special guest and local YouTube weaponizer Nadav Fleisher (@Im_nadav_hello) joins the show to break down what is easily the strangest piece of content in Wan's catalogue, complete with every kind of spoiler you could possibly imagine, so strap in!

FunHinged! #15: The Suicide Squad (w/ Olivia Haidar)
FunHinged! returns with a contemporary banger of an episode! Kevin and Hollis have an equal parts raucous and insightful discussion with their guest Olivia Haidar (@hitherehaidar) about James Gunn's delightfully bonkers blood-soaked revival of a previously doomed DC franchise.
Are there theories about Weasel? You bet! Is Kevin obsessed with the rat? Duh. Is Olivia very good at talking about movies? Oh, most assuredly!

Bleak in Review is always a lot of fun. Kevin is a great interviewer who can move between silly and serious topics with guests well. I also revisit episodes of the show for the character segments and for the intros because Kevin and Matt (original cohost) always had hilarious banter.
I hate bed bug but...
I really enjoyed this podcast.
Kevin is a treasure & I’m sorry I didn’t start listening sooner.
Kevin is one of my favorite Unpops co-hosts & I can’t believe it took me this long to listen to his pod. It’s so funny & I’m looking forward to catching up on all of the old eps.
