WELCOME TO THE ADAM SANK SHOW BLOG!

Emma Willmann Gets Topless, and On & Dave Tell All 

Happy Labor Day, A.S.S. Fans!

As most of you are off from work today, it's the perfect time to get caught up on some podcast listening! DNRStudios subscribers can listen to our latest episode, featuring renowned comedian Emma Willmann.

Emma joined us in studio – it's always a treat when we can have someone live and in person – and the first thing she did was whip her shirt off and use it as a towel to wipe up some spilled coffee. (Lest you get too excited, she had a tank top on underneath.) Anyway, she was HILARIOUS. And so easy to talk to, opening up to us about growing up in rural Maine, her first lesbian experience, how she first got into stand-up and why she's no longer into Demi Lovato. Honestly, the half-hour flew by so quickly that I was shocked when I looked at the clock and realized it was time to go to "A.S.S. Me No Questions." Emma's episode goes wide on Saturday, Sept. 10, and when it does, you can listen to it HERE.

Touched by a Lesbian

If you can't wait until next Saturday, available free now is last Saturday's episode with social media superstar On Mekahel, founder of Mounderwear, and his equally hot husband, Dave. These guys were extremely candid with us, which was quite refreshing, given Dave's prison record. He shared with us how it was that he went from an upper-middle class upbringing to the world of drug trafficking... and how he survived a year in state prison. I also asked On, who met Dave only three weeks after the prison sentence ended, whether he was wary of beginning a relationship with someone who has a criminal record. Really, really interesting stuff. You can listen to the whole episode HERE.

I wouldn't mind having either of them as a cell-mate.

Next Saturday, we'll be live in studio with one of our favorite guests, hot straight guy-comedian Kevin Israel. (He's the voice that says "Give a warm round of applause to my friend and yours, Adam Sank!" in our current show opening.) I can't wait to gaze upon him once more!

Until then, thanks as always for listening.

Sanjaya-Mania! Plus, On and Dave Get Ready for Their Closeup 

Wow, what a week! When Sanjaya Malakar agreed to be a guest on the A.S.S., I knew there'd be some interest from the media. For several months, back in 2006, Sanjaya was one of the most famous people in the world. EVERYBODY was talking about him – from late-night hosts to radio DJs (most notably Howard Stern) to standup comedians, including yours truly. I also knew that his coming out publicly as bisexual for the first time, which he and I had discussed during a pre-interview, would make some of the gay blogs.

What I was NOT prepared for is that this episode would make headlines across the world.

There's no way I could list all the publications, websites, blogs, TV shows and radio stations that ran the story, but here are some the bigger outlets that did so:

People... People Who Need People...

I was obviously THRILLED by all the great coverage from these media titans. But actually, my favorite article about us was on Heavy.com. I feel like the author, whoever she/he/they are, really got the importance of the interview, which was not just Sanjaya's sexuality but the bullying he received on American Idol from the loathsome Simon Cowell. 

I am also endlessly tickled by the fact that the first 30 minutes of the episode, which thousands of new listeners will hear, was one of the filthier discussions we've ever had on the podcast. Now everyone will know that J.B.'s "thick cakes" require at least nine inches of dick. LMAO!

So after our biggest episode ever, what do we do for a follow-up? Enter On Mekahel and his husband, Dave.

Um... Woof


Yeah, yeah, I know – a couple of hot thirstraps with a huge social media following. Who cares? Well, trust me when I tell you that they BOTH have fascinating stories to tell. And they're truly great guys. I can't wait to speak with them tomorrow (Saturday, 8/27). DNR Studios subscribers can listen live at 11AM ET. 
 

Finally, I feel like our episode featuring Daddy Cream aka Jovon Joseph got overshadowed by all the Sanjaya hoopla. Jovon was a TERRIFIC guest, and his episode is now available for free to all. Listen to it HERE.

Thanks as always for listening.

EXCLUSIVE: Sanjaya Malakar Comes Out as Bi on the Adam Sank Show! 

Hey, kids. Big A.S.S. news this week. In fact, it was so big that we released the episode to non-subscribers five days earlier than usual and sent out a press release, which goes as follows:

Sanjaya Malakar, Iconic American Idol Finalist, Comes Out as Bisexual 

Former Teen Idol Tells Discusses His Sexuality and Simon Cowell’s Criticisms with Podcast Host Adam Sank 

Aug. 22, 2022 (New York City) – In a new and exclusive interview on the Adam Sank Show Podcast, one of American Idol's most iconic former contestants, Sanjaya Malakar from Season Six of the long-running reality singing competition, comes out as bisexual. Sanjaya also speaks publicly for the first time about the treatment he received from former Idol judge Simon Cowell and from Internet bullies... and well as what he's up to these days. 

Sanjaya, now 32 and a pastry chef living in Montana, was only 16 when he first auditioned for the TV talent show in 2006, alongside his older sister, Shyamali. Although Cowell and the other judges – Randy Jackson and Paula Abdul – initially deemed the shy teen to be sufficiently talented to put him through to the top 40 round, Cowell soon soured on Sanjaya and began berating his singing week after week, at one point describing it as “utterly horrendous.” At the same time, Internet bullies across the country were incessantly blasting Sanjaya, even sardonically encouraging people to vote for him on a Vote for the Worst website. 

“I definitely had quite a bit of verbal abuse from stepdads growing up,” Sanjaya tells Sank during the 40-minute interview. “So I was really good at letting it kind of wash off my back. Obviously, it affected me. But more than what Simon said, what was perpetuated online by haters… like, the people that loved me were so balanced by people that were literally starving themselves until I got cut from the show. So that effect that I had as a child on that many people had way more of an effect on me than the things that Simon was saying.” 

Sanjaya speaks candidly with Sank about his struggles with overnight fame/infamy, even addressing the infamous “ponyhawk” hairstyle he sported in the Top 10 round, which launched a thousand late-night jokes. 

“I would literally go to Dean, the hairstylist, I would go to his studio the day or two before, and he’d have like four of five mannequin heads with wigs on them with hairstyles and be like, “What do you think?”, Sanjaya tells Sank. The week that the stylist came up with the ponyhawk look, Sanjaya says, “My mom went in and was like, ‘This is ridiculous. My son is not a joke. I’m not going to have him walking around like a fool.’” But according to Sanjaya, executive producer Nigel Lythgoe ultimately convinced Sanjaya and his mother to go ahead with the hairstyle, saying it would be a “media phenomenon.” 

Toward the end of the interview, Sank asks Sanjaya if he’d like to go on the record about his sexual identity, a source of great speculation when his season was airing. “I identify as bisexual,” Sanjaya tells him. “At the time, I did not know, which was why it was so weird for me… I was raised by women, I was in theater, I had a hard time figuring out how to interact with young boys… Everyone [kept] telling me that I’m gay, and I’m like seven. I’m like, I don’t even have any attraction to anyone, so why are you telling me this?” 

At the time that his Idol season aired, Sanjaya says he was in the midst of a long-term relationship with a young woman. “I was exploring my life as a child, and then American Idol happens, and everyone’s like ‘He’s gay.’ And I’m like, ‘Well, now I have to say “No.’ Because at this point, they’re forcing me to make a decision, and to define myself… I grew up in a time when being called ‘f-ggot’ in school was the worst thing that could ever happen to you.” 

Sanjaya went on to tell Sank that even now, he hasn’t discussed his sexual orientation with his parents. “At this point, I don’t care what people know of my sexuality,” Sanjaya says. “If I got into a serious, long-term relationship with a guy, I would bring him to my family, and they would be like, ‘Oh, cool.’”

Daddy Cream Rises to the Top 

Hey, Fam!

As I mentioned in the last post, tomorrow (Aug. 13) at 11AM ET, DNRStudios subscribers will get to hear our live interview with adult video star Daddy Cream, also known as Jovon Joseph. Jovon/Daddy is about to drop his second memoir, entitled "Life After Marriage."

He sent me an advance copy, and honey, it is JUICY. One of the things I admire so much about this guy, aside from his beautiful penis, is that he is an open book. From living with HIV to his troubled relationship with his daughter's mom to his quickie marriage and ultimate divorce, Jovon isn't afraid to put it all out there, without shame or fear. In other words, he's the PERFECT podcast guest. I can't wait! (Also, J.B. is quite excited for this episode. And by excited, I mean erect.)
 

I'm Going to Ask Him About That Cute Dr. Seuss Tattoo on his Tummy

 

In other show news, our episode featuring Tye Blue, director of "Titanique," is now available free for all HERE. One listener who seemed to enjoy it quite a bit is Kevin, who left the following review:

Tye Him Up 

Bravo Adam! 

I have been a fan of you and the show for a long time, but never felt that I had to tell you what a great job you’re doing. That’s until I heard your interview with Tye Blue, you always have great energy with your guests, but it was especially sultry during your time with Tye. Please tell me you were able to get some alone time with Ty. 

Thanks for the great podcast! 👏👏👏 

_______________________

So did I wind up getting a date with Tye? You'll have to listen and find out!

Finally, I'm super-duper-extra excited about next week's interview with Sanjaya from American Idol. It occurred to me the other day that he will be the first guest we've ever had who's instantly recognized by his first name alone – like Cher or Madonna. Literally everybody over the age of 25 knows who Sanjaya is! And now he's gonna tell ALL, exclusively on the A.S.S. Get ready.

As always, thanks for listening.

xoxo Adam

Get Ready for Sanjaya... and Some Other Amazing Guests! 

Happy Friday, fam! 

Just two more days until we find out whether the A.S.S. has been nominated for a Podcast Award. I'm on pins and needles! BTW, now's a good as any time to make sure you're following us on all our various platforms:

Speaking of YouTube, we may be doing a video edition of the A.S.S. sometime in the near future. Stay tuned.

And speaking of the near future, I'm always excited to talk with the various actors, comedians, singers, activists and other talented folk that we're fortunate enough to have on the pod. But I am particularly jazzed about some of the guests we have coming up in the next few weeks. 

Note: I don't usually announce guests more than a week in advance, because people's schedules change, conflicts arise, shit happens, etc., and I don't want to jinx anything. But fingers crossed that the following folks appear as scheduled:

Aug. 6: Kelly Mantle – Kelly may be best known as a contestant from Season Six of RuPaul's Drag Racebut they were an established actor long before that, having appeared in major shows like NYPD Blue, Just Shoot Me, Judging Amy and The New Adventures of Old Christine. Their career has continued to blossom since Drag Race, including appearances on Lucifer, Modern Family and The Browns. We pre-recorded Kelly's episode last Saturday. They have a really fun, laid-back vibe, and it felt like I was talking to an old friend I've known for years, though it was our first time speaking. Plus, their uncle was Mickey Mantle! DNRStudios subscribers can listen to the episode beginning tomorrow (Saturday, 8/6) at 11AM ET.

Kelly on the Telly

Aug. 13: Daddy Cream aka Jovon Joseph – One of J.B.'s favorite porn stars! I've been wanting to get Jovon on the show for a while. Aside from being ridiculously sexy, he's got a very interesting story, which he's completely open about telling. Here's a teaser: The year he turned 18, he went to juvenile hall, had a baby with a woman and made his first gay porn video. You want to know more, right? I certainly do.

Um... Yum.

Aug: 20: Sanjaya Malakar -Yes, THE Sanjaya – iconic former American Idol finalist from Season 6. For years, I've been wondering, what ever happened to Sanjaya? I finally reached out to him, and we became social media friends. He's a total sweetheart with zero fucks left to give, and he is ready to tell ALL – from his personal life to the hideous treatment he received from Simon Cowell. I cannot wait for this one.

The Ponyhawk that Launched a Thousand Clips

Aug. 27: On and Dave Mekahel On Mekahel is an Israeli model, reality star, clothing entrepreneur and social media superstar with over 2 million Instagram followers. He's got quite a story to tell, but so does his equally humpy husband, Dave, who once served time in prison for drug trafficking. We're going to devote most of the hour to these two. 

I'm Going to Ask if They're Looking for a Third

Good stuff, right? A reminder that you can only hear these shows live and throughout the week they first air by subscribing to the Adam Sank Show at DNRStudios. The rest of you can listen a week later on Apple Podcasts and most other streaming platforms.

Thanks for listening, and much love.

I Want Your Sex (But Not Your Monkeypox) 

I'm alive! This despite a nasty super-flu that knocked me on my ass for the better part of last week. It wasn't Monkeypox or COVID... but it was bad. Suffice it to say, I fell behind on my ASS-blogging, but I'm back and happy to tell you what's been happening on the pod lately.

First, the Dallas Steele episode has generated a lot of buzz, as I expected it would. It's available for free now, so give it a listen HERE. (As George Michael would say, "Listen without prejudice.")

Speaking of George Michael, we recently had as our guest celebrity biographer James Gavin. James has written a fascinating and exhaustingly researched new book about the late, great British pop star entitled George Michael: A LifeReading it brought me immediately back to middle school and reminded me just how many massive hits George had, both with Wham! and in his solo career. I can honestly say that the video of "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" (1984) awakened something sexual in my 13-year-old self. And by the time the "Faith" video hit the airwaves in 1987... featuring a bearded, sunglassed George in a black leather jacket, shaking his perfectly round rump... well, I was fully on my way to Homotown.

God, he was beautiful.

Sadly, as James tells it, the joy that George brought to me and millions of others was not something he often felt himself. Plagued with self-doubt, the pressures of living in the closet, significant personal loss and, ultimately addiction culminated in his untimely death at the age of 53 in 2016. You can listen free to my interview with James (and the rest of the episode) HERE.

On a much lighter note, this past Saturday we had in studio Tye Blue, the director and co-creator of NYC's current musical-comedy smash, TitaniqueThe show imagines what would have happened had Celine Dion been a passenger aboard the fated ocean liner... and lived to sing about it. It's truly one of the funniest things I've ever seen, and I spoke with Tye about how it all came together... and what Celine herself thinks of it.

I also asked Tye out on the air. You'll have to listen to see how that went. DNRStudios subscribers can hear the episode all this week; the rest of you will have to wait until this coming Saturday, 8/6, when it'll be available HERE.

She's Queen of the World!

Finally, some odds and ends:
 

  • Steve Chazaro finally returns to the pod as co-host Aug. 6. Woo hoo!
  • Nominations for the Podcast Awards are now closed! We'll know Aug. 7 whether we were nominated. Stay tuned, and fingers crossed!
  • We have some iconic guests coming up... prepare to have your minds blown.
  • We've seen a tremendous growth in listenership over the past several months. I couldn't be more thrilled, but... and it's a big butt... we can't take advantage of the growth unless every one of you leaves a review on Apple Podcasts. Please take a few minutes and do so today. I'll be forever in your debt! 
     

Make sure all you sexually active gay and bi men get your vaccine for Monkeypox, aka Schlong Covid, ASAP. Thanks, and love to you all!

xoxo Adam

Big D... Little-A-Double-L-A-S. 

(Extra points for anyone who gets the title reference.)

Some weeks back, I posted about an ethical dilemma I was having with regard to booking a huge-dicked and seemingly nice but possibly right-wing porn star. Well, I did it. The porn star in question is Dallas Steele, and his episode is currently available for DNR Studios subscribers and will go wide (like his penis) to the rest of you on Saturday, July 23.

In the end, I'm so glad I decided to have Dallas on; his interview turned out to be one our most compelling ever.

And the view ain't bad either.

Dallas has an unusual backstory; for 23 years, he worked as a local TV news reporter and anchorman before shucking it all for adult video work. We talked about that – but things got a lot deeper, as Dallas revealed an unhappy childhood, including an adolescent suicide attempt, and the horror, many years later, of finding his own longtime partner dead of suicide.

After those revelations, we turned to his politics. Contrary to popular belief, Dallas is not a Trumper. He's not even one of those feckless third-party voters; he voted for Biden. Nor is he an anti-vaxxer, though he does have some anger toward the CDC over what he sees as regulatory overreach. We touched on that, as well as on the Black Lives Matter movement, about which his views are nuanced. 

I came away from the interview feeling like Dallas is a good guy whose heart is in the right place, even if he's been influenced somewhat by right-wing tropes. One of the things he said on the show is that he likes having conversations with those who hold differing political views to his own. I believe him, and I think the result was some great radio. I look forward to hearing what you guys think of the episode.

One performer with whom I'm in general agreement, politically and comedically, is Julia Scotti. The openly trans comedian, who made it big a few years back on America's Got Talent, has a hilarious new album out called Primal Cuts. On a recent episode of the A.S.S., we talked about the making of the album, how her comedy has evolved over the years... and how she feels about Dave Chappelle's virulently anti-trans material. 

Beam me up, Scotti!

On the same episode, guest host Logan Hardcore and I discussed a list of famous historical facts that are absolutely wrong! (Here's a teaser: Napoleon wasn't that short. And contrary to what Logan thinks, he's not a tri-flavor ice cream.)

You can listen to the entire episode HERE.

In less fun news, I've been talking a lot on the show lately about monkeypox. It's real, guys, and it's here – especially if you're in New York. I have three friends who have been suffering with excruciatingly painful lesions on their anus. You do NOT want this. The vaccine distribution system has been a disaster so far, but please, as soon as you can, get vaccinated. And maybe refrain from humping for the time being, as difficult as that is when it's summertime and everybody's feeling frisky.

Finally, nominations are still open for the Podcast Awards! As a reminder:

  1. Go to www.podcastawards.com
  2. Register as a nominator and voter. It's fast, free and easy, and they won't spam you. Make sure you click the box agreeing to become a voter as well.

Nominate this A.S.S.! 

UPDATE: It turns out that Derek and Romaine DID, indeed, submit for a 2022 Podcast Award in the LGBTQ category (albeit later than most). So please vote either for them OR for If These Ovaries Could Talk in that category. But vote for the A.S.S. in the Comedy category!

___________________________

Belated happy 4th of July, kiddos!

I'm behind in my blogging again. So, in lieu of an apology, here's a photo of my behind.

Butt seriously...

Now that I've gotten your attention, it's time to nominate the A.S.S. for a 2022 Podcast Award! And the good news this year is, we're not competing against any other DNR Studios shows! That's because 1) I entered us in the COMEDY category this year, and 2) The only other DNR show to submit this year was If These Ovaries Could Talkand they're in the LGBTQ category. So, here's what I'm asking you to do:

  1. Go to www.podcastawards.com
  2. Register as a nominator and voter. It's fast, free and easy, and they won't spam you. Make sure you click the box agreeing to become a voter as well.
  3. Nominate Adam Sank Show in the PEOPLE'S CHOICE and COMEDY categories. (Note – it's listed without the "The" – just "Adam Sank Show.")
  4. Nominate If These Ovaries Could Talk in the LGBTQ category.
  5. Nominate whomever you'd like in the other categories. (If you're not familiar with the shows in a given category, just select one at random.)
  6. Go back to the site anytime between Aug. 8-Sept. 13 and make sure you vote for A.S.S. and Ovaries in the categories in which we're nominated!

Thank you in advance for your help!

We've had some really great guests on the show lately, at least according to the listener feedback I've been getting. In particular, make sure you listen to Ep. 238 with actor-comedian Rick Crom and Ep. 239 with legendary journalist Michael Musto, both of which are now free on Apple Podcasts. Both of these guys know how to give a fun and lively interview, and it makes my job a lot easier.

Speaking of easy, my trusty co-host Steve is taking off the month of July due to his multiple visits to The Woods Campground, the idyllic playground for horny gay men located in the Poconos Mountains of Pennsylvania. But not to worry, we'll be hearing from Steve in a series of live call-ins we're calling "Steve is Into the Woods." (Cue the Sondheim music.)

Waiting in the Woods

This means I'll be sharing the studio with some delightful guest co-hosts throughout the month. For the first two Saturdays, it's notorious NYC drag queen Logan Hardcore! Logan and I were live together on July 2 – guestless, no less – and it was a wild ride. Prepare yourself for Logan's evil laughter after I tell a horrific story about a woman who gave birth to a headless baby.

And he took out his titty.

Last thing before I go: We've experienced some significant growth in our listenership over the past three months. I am thrilled, but I want more... MORE... MOOOOOOOOOORE! The No. 1 thing you can do to help us grow, aside from posting reviews to Apple Podcasts, is to tell your friends about us and share posts about us on social media. We will be eternally grateful for it.

Thank you and much love.

xoxo Adam

It's NYC Pride! And You (Michael) Must-o Listen! 

I'm baaaaack! Sorry to have fallen off with the blog posts lately; I've had an unusually busy couple of weeks. But all my extracurricular obligations have ended for the moment... just in time for NYC Pride Weekend!

This is my favorite time of year, and since we're past the worst of COVID (fingers crossed), the celebrations across the city should be off the chain. (Of course, now we've got Monkey Pox to worry about, but so far the spread is relatively contained – with only 30 known cases since early May. Fingers crossed again.)

God, save us from the Monkey.

For tomorrow's Pride episode of the ASS, we're not live in studio (duh!), but we do have a brand new episode featuring legendary journalist Michael Musto. Michael is one of those iconic figures who are inseparable from one's image of New York City – like Fran Lebowitz, Al Sharpton and the Statue of Liberty. It's always a thrill for me to have him on the podcast, because I've been reading his dishy columns in the New York papers since I was a mere twink.

We talked to Michael about the fact that he is one of the most sought-after talking heads in documentary filmmaking – having appeared in well over 120 such films. This comes with some benefits, but mostly, says Michael, it's a big pain in the ass. We also asked Michael what his reaction was when he learned that notorious club kid murderer Michael Alig, whom Musto knew and covered extensively in the 90s, had died. And we discovered that Michael is deathly afraid of my dog, Lady.

Who let the dogs out?

DNR Studios subscribers can listen to this episode beginning tomorrow (6/25), at 11AM ET. Also tomorrow, non-subscribers can listen to last week's fabulous interview with comedian/actor Rick Crom, who's currently starring off-Broadway in Sarah Silverman's The Bedwetter. Rick is always a terrific guest, and he was a hoot last Saturday, talking about sex after 60 and performing his stellar Johnny Carson impression. Listen to that episode free HERE.

A quick shout-out to my former co-host, Ryan Frostig: He debuted his new cabaret show this past Wednesday at the Green Room 42 in NYC, and it got rave reviews! Ryan is performing the show again tomorrow night (6/25), and you can still get tix HERE

Go, Frostpig!

That's all for this week, kids! Wishing you all a joyous and safe Pride. Thank you for listening, and please keep those reviews coming HERE.

xoxo Adam

Drew Droege, Questionable Audio and an Ethical Booking Dilemma 

Dear Reader:

We begin with an ethical dilemma: I recently became acquainted, via a Facebook thread, with a well-known gay porn star. This man has an interesting backstory; he was already known to many people before he began his porn career. Also, he has a truly magnificent penis. But after mentioning to him that I'd love to have him on the ASS – and he said he'd be into it – I had multiple people reach out privately and inform me that this guy is something of a right-winger.

He's not a Trumper – I actually found a tweet of his in which he says he can't understand how any LGBTQ person could support that POS. And he also posted on FB his opposition to Florida's "Don't Say Gay Law," although in the same post he stated that he admired Gov. Ron DeSantis's "approach to business."

That seems to align with one of his main political talking points – that COVID shutdowns were unnecessary and harmful. He seems to have a particularly visceral hatred for California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a man I admire very much. In general, he seems to prefer Republicans over Democrats, which, in 2022, is simply gross.

(Also, one FB friend claims that the porn star at one time was suspected of murdering his boyfriend, but I can find no evidence of this online.)


Now as y'all know, I've had people on the podcast with whom I disagree politically, most notably right-wing comedian Aaron Berg and a certain Canadian podcaster who shall remain nameless. You can check out both those episodes below:

Ep. 184: Aaron Berg Stirs Sh-t Up    

Ep. 189: Adam Interviews an A--hole

But honestly, I felt weird giving either of those guys airtime, because I find their views to be toxic and harmful. At the same time, they made for good radio. And the porn star in question doesn't seem to be nearly as wacked out as those two. (In a recent FB thread, he seemed to support responsible gun laws, which gives me tremendous hope.)

So what should I do? Do you want to hear me interview the big-dicked, right-leaning-but-not-Trumpy porn star? Let me know in comments. 

Yay or Neigh?


Speaking of COVID, I caught it... again. Symptoms were super-mild this time, no doubt owing to the fact that I am double-vaxxed and double-boosted. But the five-day quarantine meant that I had to record this past Saturday's two episodes from home, with Steve and J.B. in studio. Thus, the audio quality is less-than-stellar, particularly on the one featuring ASS favorite Drew Droege, which premieres this coming Saturday, June 11 for DNR Studios subscribers and everybody else the following week. Drew is one of my all-time favorite guests, but I had a very hard time hearing him throughout the interview, owing both to a questionable phone connection on his part and the fact that I was connected via the dreaded CleanFeed app. 

Say what?


I actually remastered the episode on GarageBand after the fact, doing my best to boost and clarify his audio for the interview segment, which makes me sound grossly overmodulated. Sorry, guys, we did our best. In any case, Drew is always charming, witty and talented. If you're in L.A. or New York, you should go out and see him in his renowned one-man show, Happy Birthday, Douglater this month.

Our live episode this past Saturday featured master impressionist Rachel Butera, another one of my faves. This made for an instantly classic round of ASS Me No Questions, in which Rachel answered each question as a different celebrity – including Sandra Bernhard, Amy Schumer, Rosie O'Donnell and Roseanne Barr. It's truly hilarious. Everybody can listen to the episode free this Saturday, June 11 at 11:00AM ET by clicking HERE.

That's all for this week. Thanks for reading, listening, laughing, sucking etc.

xoxo Adam
