Get Josh and Jake a Money

"It's great." - Apple's 5-star review text.

These two genuine friends throw mad 'bows in a comedic mosh pit, hosting all different breeds and brands of improv boobs. No matter how healthy I am when I jump in, I always come away with a bloody nose. The Meat is "great," but what really juices my jowls is the sidekick podcast I get as a PATREON SUBSCRIBER. YOU don't get it because YOU don't SUBSCRIBE on PATREON you IDIOT! This Patreon sister-cast, "The Potatoes," is essentially an elongated lesson wrap-up you'd get in an actual class with these guys. I hate to tell you this, because I like having more than you, but it's only $5 a month for these supplemental educational materials. If you really want to improve at improv, you'd be stupid not to become a patron.

It's also fun that they both have high-pitched giggles.
