    A Bunch of Gloppin' Comedians

    A Bunch of Gloppin' Comedians

    At the close of trading on November 17, 2021 a share of Netflix stock would cost you $691.69. At the end of trading on May 20, 2022 it was $186.35, a drop of over 70%. What in the wide, wide world of sports is going on around here? The Mighty Men of GLoP are on the case as "woke" ideology meets "stupid money" meets an industry that has started to reach its maturity.
    Then the new Judd Apatow documentary about the late George Carlin (HBO Max) spurs a discussion on great standup comics past and present and how their work stands the test of time.

    The Slap and Ovation Delta

    The Slap and Ovation Delta

    It’s a fairly rare event these days when an event in the pop culture realm becomes something everyone has a take on. But that’s what happened earlier this week when Will Smith launched the Slap Heard ‘Round The World and as such, the men of GLoP answered our Bat Signal and recorded this show. But they don’t just opine on the Fresh Prince’s pugilism. They take a look back at the career of Bruce Willis on the announcement of his retirement from acting, parse Madison Cawthorn’s claim that he regularly attends orgies and explain the proper etiquette if one should find oneself at such an event, and then they tell a few jokes that may not be 100% family friendly. Consider yourself and your children warned.

    With A Machete

    With A Machete

    We know that we've missed a GLoP or two in the past few months. So in an effort to make up for lost GLoPs, we present this super-sized edition, close to 90 minutes long. We won't delve into the myriad of topics covered in this show except to say it runs the gamut from a brief history of cable, William Hurt and his many flaws, Skeet Ulrich, The Godfather, Brando, the woman who protested the Ukraine war in a Russian TV studio, who should play Zelensky and more. Just listen. And laugh.

    Distinguished Gentlemen

    Distinguished Gentlemen

    This week, the men of GLoP remember a friend and someone who they admired from a far.
    P.J. O’Rourke, the great humorist, satirist, author, editor of National Lampoon, car enthusiast, and all around good guy was a friend to all the guys and they trade their stories and thoughts on his passing. None of the guys knew Ivan Reitman, but as the director of Ghostbusters, Twins, Kindergarten Cop, and a producer on Animal House and Stripes, his work was an important part of their entertainment diet.

    Be Like Ike

    Be Like Ike

    This is an eclectic episode to be sure. We start with a review of Wednesday’s presidential press conference and center on how Joe Biden sees himself. The folks on the far left are looking for FDR at a time when, in the eyes of our intrepid trio, maybe what America really wants is Dwight Eisenhower. After the “war,” we get the “remembrance…” Sidney Poitier, Peter Bogdanovich, Betty White and, just to liven things up a little, we ask “who would you not mind seeing dead?” Yeah, it’s a little bit involuted.

G-Man is wrong

I started "Foundation" on Apple TV bc of Jonah's negative review. It's AWESOME and so is this podcast! More GLoP please

Superglide1 ,

Fun!

My only criticism is the same as I have on the Commentary podcast. Pod interrupts too much and doesn’t let anyone else speak.
