David Gborie (All Fantasy Everything) joins Jordan and Jesse for a discussion of how much drama everyone's mama is bringing to the table, the overwhelming popularity of juggalos in David's hometown, and the results of our previous JJGo Calliseum where we asked people if they have ever been to the restaurant Vij's in Vancouver, have a bad experience at a Blink-182 concert, or have seen Tony! Toni! Toné! in concert in an attempt to find and experience that only 15 members of our audience has had.

Tights and Fights Ep. 145: Double or Nothing w/ Box Brown

Guests: 
Box Brown

This week, Hal and Danielle are rejoined by Box Brown. He’s a comic creator whose new book "Cannabis: The Illegalization of Weed in America".

Brown is a longtime, but lapsed, fan of WWE. The trends of the product have led to him being less dedicated to following televised wrestling. But this week featured a show that rekindled that love and has the entire panel excited for what’s to come: Double or Nothing from All Elite Wrestling.

It wasn’t perfect. But it was a great first step for a fledgling promotion that has the money and roster to compete with WWE for attention. We’ll go over everything that worked and what didn’t work… and take a quick look at what RAW’s response to the show was.

The Three Count

Box put over the all-women promotion AEW’s post-show press conferences.

Danielle put over wrestling in WWE shouting out AEW.

Hal put over Zack Ryder’s appearance on the Defunctland Podcast.

Hosted by Hal Lublin, Danielle Radford and Box Brown.

Produced by Julian Burrell for Maximum Fun.

Timothy Simons on playing Veep's Jonah Ryan for 7 seasons

One of the most iconic things about HBO's Veep was the way the characters insulted one another. Each insult was delivered with laser-like precision to get at each character's insecurities. Perhaps no character on the show received more of these zingers than Jonah Ryan. He was an unlikable White House aide who went on to become one of New Hampshire's least popular members of Congress.

Veep starred Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer. A narcissistic politician who, despite constantly sabotaging herself, manages to ascend to the Oval Office.

Only to lose it almost as quickly.

Jonah, Simons' character, starts the show as a lowly staffer in the West Wing. By the final season, he's a presidential candidate facing off against Selina. It's a wild and funny ride.

Simons talks with Bullseye about his unique, fascinating journey to Veep. He dreamed of being a film and TV actor since he started out in Chicago. He and his wife had only been married a short time before they dropped everything and left the Windy City for Los Angeles. At the time it was a big risk. He didn't have a gig lined up. He had never even been to California. The first time he saw LA was on his drive in from the long haul.

It was a tough transition, but soon after he landed the part as Jonah. When he went into audition he did not look the part at all. The casting directors were looking for someone short, bearded and kind of chubby. Simons, who's slender and tall, gave the writers something different to work with. But it worked.

Simons explains why thick skin doesn't always protect you from fictional insults. Plus, how being a dad has impacted his acting career and knowledge of elementary school handball.
