Hilarious & Insightful

I can listen to JB all the time whether he’s a guest on another show or May I Elaborate? He goes way out there but always manages to bring his message home to make outstanding advice. Great interplay with Miles. May I Elaborate is one of my favorite Conan shows for sure.

Bonus: we get Chester Gwazda working on the sound. That may not mean much if you’re not from Pennington, NJ but then again I’m from Pennington and it doesn’t mean too much to me but my ears perked up when I heard JB mentioning his name in the credits. Way to go, Chester.

Conan O’brien recommended you. I have no idea why anyone would want to listen to your MF unfunny angry rants.
