Oh hi, Filmdrunk readers! I didn’t see you there because thousands of miles separates us, most likely. It’s time for another ACTION PACKED edition of the FilmDrunk Frotcast – literally the world’s only film podcast that also covers television. Which is fortunate for you because this week we talk about the Emmy awards with Uproxx’s own Zach Johnston and Roundball Rock’s Joey Devine. Also featured in this episode: Vince talks about Sean Penn’s “issues” with the MeToo movement and then proceeds to reveal that Sean Penn sexually assaulted Madonna (seriously) ((allegedly… but seriously)), Matt Lieb explores his love of Mystic River via Sean Penn impersonation, and Zach discusses living in Germany and the many, many types of sausages they enjoy there, while also teaching Matt where and what the Berlin wall was. If you love FILM AND TELEVISION, you’ll LOVVVVVE this podcast. (-Matt Lieb)
Are y’all ready to talk about CINEMA?!?! Good, because this week’s Frotcast, which features comedian and Vice columnist Alison Stevenson and future NFL hall of famer Brendan, is jam packed with the same in-depth film critique that keeps you coming back for more. America’s number one film podcast dives into the classic Burt Reynold’s film Stroker Ace – a movie about NASCAR racing and normalized sexual assault. We also talk about the the Beatles having a circle jerk, Matt recalls a circle jerk story of his own, Norm MacDonald’s apology tour, and Mark Wahlberg’s daily schedule.

This week brings great guests to the Frotquarters, comedians Joey Devine from Roundball Rock and returning guest Kaseem Bentley, soon to be recording his comedy album. Strangely enough, we actually talk almost exclusively movie stuff this week, from Shane Black getting flack for hiring his pal the convicted sex offender to the Oscars postponing their “popular achievement” Oscar. Also, Kaseem saw Ladybird, Matt has a Norm MacDonald story, and there’s a new Eminem album out, giving Matt ample opportunity to try out for official slam poet of the #resistance.

That’s Well that was Dave Thomason (Comedy Central, HBO) who said that, and he’s on the show this week. He joins Vince and Matt, along with fellow comic Scott Luhrs. We’re revisiting Jaws (in order to better appreciate The Meg), as well as Tales From NPR, and Christian Corner.

Here’s the full episode description: This week on the Frotcast, we talk about the biggest miscarriage of justice of the modern era. That’s right, I’m talking about “Paul Flart,” the farting security guard who got fired simply for being so good at farting. Should we write letters to our congressmen? Was Paul Flart inspired by the famous Frotcast segment “Paul Blarg Presents?” Helping us ponder these questions and more are comedians Johnny Taylor Jr. and George Chen, the latter of the SupDoc documentary podcast. We also talk cults, Asia Argento, the Boots Riley/Spike Lee feud, and of course, we devote a good 10 minutes to Matt’s weird childhood masturbation stories. This one is for the Patreon donors! Enjoy!
So, do you like Cars 3 director Bobby Hacker? What about Vice writer Alison Stevenson? And how about Brian Abrams, author of Obama: An Oral History (previously of Heeb and Death and Taxes)? All these acclaimed past Frotcast guests join Matt Lieb from the Star Wars Show and me, Vince Mancini from FilmDrunk, for a podcast about Brian’s new book and our thoughts on the new Netflix rom-com, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Of course, this being The Frotcast, we also have to cover jelqing and the NYC Tinder girl who set up a date with 100 guys and made them compete for her affection.

This week on the Frotcast, it’s co-host Brendan’s triumphant return from fathering children. Brendan joins the irregular regular Matt Lieb and Vince, with returning guest, comedian Yusef Roach. Yusef just got fired, possibly for social media reasons, so we ask about that, and then I play all my favorite football reality shows for ex-NFL Europe player Brendan. Can you predict the moral of the bad football coach parable? After that we talk “Bitch I’m a Cow,” the song of the Summer, and we all watched the 1993 classic The Fugitive. Is it the best cast movie ever made? We also talk awards shows, Colin Jost, and more. Enjoy and Frot on — donate to our Patreon at Patreon.com/Frotcast, and help out Yusef at Patreon.com/deathisimminent.

This week on the Frotcast, we’ve got comedian Jeff May from Tom & Jeff Watch Batman on to discuss Justice League, which we finally made it all the way through after falling asleep two or three times. Worth it? (It’s currently free on HBO). We also discuss James Gunn getting fired by Disney thanks to a letter writing campaign organized by an accused rapist, and the Georgia Assemblyman who resigned after Sacha Baron Cohen tricked him into shouting the N-word and being incredibly racist 16 or 17 times. That Cohen, such a trickster. Also best wishes to overdosee Demi Lovato from ex-heroin addict Matt Lieb. Eat the rich, eat that butt. Much love and Frot on, donate at Patreon.com/Frotcast.
Sacha Baron Cohen talk begins around minute 15.
Justice League talk begins around 42 minutes.
