    Meet the voices behind all of the idiocy.
 

     
    Randy juggles two jobs and is the miserable retail slave of the two. He lives outside beautiful Flint, MI, USA and struggles with being a lazy, yet overworked dreamer and a struggling, but barely trying writer.
     
    Tommy also lives outside Flint, MI with The Beloved and his two step daughters. He's a stand up comedian and a man of questionable common sense. Check out his stand up dates and plan a trip to throw tomatoes at http://tomethompson.com

Nick Haskins ,

Absolutely HILARIOUS!

I love listening to every single minute of this show. Randy's sarcastic wit always leaves me in stitches and it's such a perfect contrast to Tommy's pretty straight-laced and oftentimes bewildered delivery. Their observations are amazing and perfect. You will never laugh harder than you will from listening to Randy & Tommy. Subscribe to this amazing show today!

LOL

When I actually laughs out loud you’re doing something right! Seriously funny !!

DougGoodwin ,

Best thing from Flint, MI since the water.

Now that Randy has a new job and Tommy owns the human life of his mechanic, maybe this podcast should be retitled Mildly Aggrieved White Collar Indentured Servant. Nah, that would kill the SEO. Keep the episodes coming, and I’ll continue resurfacing on occasion. The armchair producer has spoken.
