283: The Comedians Of Viceland’s ‘Flophouse,’ the Anti-Circumcision Lobby, and ‘The Witch’

We go INSIDE THE COMEDIAN’S STUDIO this week, or inside the comedian’s flophouse, anyway, in honor of Matt Lieb and Jane Harrison’s television debuts on Viceland’s Flophouse (airs March 17th). Did you know they named the first episode after a Matt Lieb bit? He’s big time now. After that, we talk about Jane’s Bad Date with Rad Tad the Dog-Faced Bartender (and modern dating in general), discuss Chris Rock’s Oscars monologue, we try to get to the bottom of vocal anti-circumcisioners (with whom Matt recently publicly feuded), talk THE WITCH and answer your emails.
