The hosts of the comedy podcast Jordan Jesse Go! had an idea. What if they bought an ice cream cone for 1000 strangers? Just to make the world a better place? They launched a Kickstarter, and with the help of over 600 of their listeners, raised the money to do it.
Jordan and Jesse headed to Sweet Action Ice Cream in Denver for the big event. Each person who received a cone also got a card with the name of the Jordan Jesse Go! listener who bought it for them. It took six hours, some running around in the street, and even a (brief) visit to a pot dispensary, but when they were done, one thousand ice cream cones had been bought for folks wandering past the shop. And a better day was had by all.
You can find Jordan and Jesse's profane and hilarious show free in iTunes or online at http://www.maximumfun.org .
Jesse and Jordan thank all our Kickstarter supporters, especially:

On August 25th we will be recording special live tapings of Jordan, Jesse Go! and International Waters in London and we want to invite all of our friends in the UK to the show!
Jordan, Jesse Go! 2pm. Tickets!
A very special live edition of Jordan, Jesse, GO!, the freewheeling comedy podcast about life and everything else. Your hosts are Jesse Thorn, "America's Radio Sweetheart," and Jordan Morris, "Boy Detective," who are in the UK because they thought the Olympics happened here every year...
There will be a brilliant special guest TBC.
International Waters 4:30pm. Tickets!
International Waters is the pop culture comedy quiz show where land laws do not apply.
Join host Jesse Thorn and competing teams of world-famous comedians from the US and UK in a hilarious and lively test of pop culture knowledge (and the ability to make up baloney when that knowledge fails).
It's part panel show, part trivia quiz and all laughs. It's also a little embarrassed it wrote that last sentence.
We'll be announcing our teams closer to the taping but we have some GREAT people ALMOST lined-up!
The Phoenix, Cavendish Square, London United Kingdom
The venue opens 30 minutes before each recording. The phoenix has good food, good booze and there's going to be a MaxFun meet-up afterwards.
