Frotcast 418: Eh, I’m Joakin’ Here, With Joey Avery



This week, the San Diego Hammer, Joey Avery returns to the Frotcast to help Vince and Matt sort through our Joker feelings and ask how we managed to avoid getting shot in a spree-killing by some Joker-inspired incel. So this Joker movie… we kinda liked it? That topic takes up the bulk of our time, but we also spare some time to discuss Terrence Howard at the Emmys last week, and some of his incredible discoveries in the realm of mathematics, astronomy, particle physics, and… uh… horticulture? He opened up the flower of life, we know at least that much. Joey has a new comedy album out (Junior Varsity, by Pier 69!) so be sure to check that out, and in related news, Joey recently met his spiritual sibling, Urijah Faber, the most chilled out surf bro ever inducted into the UFC hall of fame. Hope you like this episode! Be sure to join us on Patreon at Patreon.com/frotcast for all the bonus content, including this month’s live riff of Tiptoes.

TEASER: Frotcast Live Riff Of Tiptoes, With Jacob Sirof, Jason Webb, and Matt Curry

Hey Frot fam, this month for the monthly Frotcast super bonus riff episode, Matt and Vince welcome Jason Webb, Matt Curry, and Jacob Sirof to the Frotquaters to riff over the cult classic Dwarf-sploitation disaster film “Tiptoes.” You’ve probably seen the trailer for tiptoes circulating around the internet. If you haven’t, check it out here!

The cast of this film is stacked: Kate Beckinsale, Matthew McConaughey, Patricia Arquette, Peter Dinklage (who inexplicably plays his entire role with a French accent), and Gary Oldman PLAYING A DWARF! Weirdly, Oldman’s dwarfface performance might be the least offensive thing about this film. It’s an absolute disaster in every sense of the word – like if an Oscarbait film were directed by Tommy Wiseau. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll wish you’d been drowned at birth.

TEASER: Matt And Vince Talk The Death Of Dick Long

A few weeks ago I drove across town into the teeth of five o’clock traffic and saw a movie that instantly put me in a good mood — no small feat! That movie was ‘The Death Of Dick Long’ and it was so good that I demanded Matt see it to prove that I wasn’t crazy. Turns out, we both loved it, so much that we had to do a podcast about it. What do most movies about rural goofballs get so wrong and how does ‘The Death Of Dick Long’ get it so right? Why does this movie remind us so much of going to The Gathering Of The Juggalos a few years back? Discover the answers to these questions and more (what is the meaning of life? why am I here? why does the caged bird sing?) on this week’s B-B-B-B-B-B-BONUS FROTCAST! Check out ‘The Death Of Dick Long’ when it opens this weekend (if it’s playing near you) and remember: you’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.


UNLOCKED: Matt And Vince Review ‘IT Chapter Two’



This episode was available weeks ago to our Patreon subscribers. Become one today at Patreon.com/Frotcast. You can add our premium feed to your regular podcast app.

Hey everyone! It’s finally here! And by “it” we are talking about “It” the movie not “it” as in the way teens talked about sex in the 80s. Unlike Vince who is a philistine, Matt has actually read the novel It by Stephen King and has a lot of thoughts about how books are better than movies. In general, Matt and Vince discuss everything from clowns being scary, to redheads being in movies all the time, to Stephen King’s ideas being the product of cocaine. It’s a really great episode and I’m not just saying that because I am one of the two hosts of the show.


Frotcast 417: Eating Crickets With The Kendall Roy Hive, Feat. Jane Harrison



Cancel Culture! Is it real? Is it to be feared? How many racial slurs are comedians allowed to make on podcasts before becoming unemployable? That’s right, this episode of the Frotcast is all about WHERE. YOU. STAND. on the latest CULTURE WAR ISSUES facing COMEDY TODAY! Just kidding, we mostly find the whole Shane Gillis thing extremely exhausting and so we switch to topics more our speed, like Succession, why Matt and Jane aren’t watching Righteous Gemstones even though it’s an objectively wonderful show, and why so many ladies have a curious crush on Kendall Roy. Also, Matt couldn’t get the SD card on his recorder to work and searched all through his parents’ house for a new one but all he found was his mom’s vibrator, which is why Matt’s audio sounds kind of bad this week and also why Matt is a dirty little sex piggy. Meanwhile, we talk about Matt’s five jobs and why eating crickets on the internet is way better than being on SNL. In Jane Harrison’s return, she talks about getting a new cat even though her last cat tried to    kill her. Are Jane’s cats Kendall Roy? SO MUCH MORE.

TEASER – Joe and Vince Talk ‘Rambo: Last Blood’



In this week’s bonus episode, Joe Sinclitico joins Vince to discuss Rambo: Last Blood, a stupendously racist, fantastically gory rape-revenge fantasy that seems to be aimed squarely at the Dads-who-watch-knife-smithing-shows-on-the-History-Channel demographic. Or as Joe likes to think of it, Home Alone for psychotic preppers. Naturally, we had a good time with it. We discuss Stallone’s refreshingly honest takes on HGH and his preternatural understanding of the average America bro-CHUD brain, and marvel at the myriad ways Mexican drug cartel soldiers can be brutally murdered on screen with rebar and punji sticks. You truly do not want to miss this one.

Frotcast 416: More Matrix Movies, Fewer Jeffrey Epsteins, with Casey Ley



Hello all you lovely Frotcast listeners, Matt Lieb here. It’s been over a week since we last Frotted together and trust me when I say we’ve missed you just as much as you’ve missed us. SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED: movie news has happened, internet beefs have come and gone, sexual predators who were once alive are now mysteriously dead, Vince went to Australia and became a man. And on and on it goes. Luckily, we had Joe Sinclitico and comedian Casey Ley in the Frotquarters to make sense of it all for us. You might remember Casey from our Super Bonus Riff episode of the Frot where we watched Weekend At Bernie’s. If you haven’t listened to that episode, you should.

Here’s just a brief overview:

-Jeffrey Epstein’s suicide

-Vince’s trip to Australia where he decides to go full Borat voice

-Matt had internet beef with a Cosby Truther

-Was Jeffrey Epstein murdered?

-Another Matrix movie?

-Casey Ley is not suspicious of Epstein’s untimely death

Spider-Man goes to Sony!

-WHERE WAS CASEY WHEN EPSTEIN WAS FOUND DEAD?!?!?!

Frotcast 415: Once Upon A Time In Frottywood



This week on the Frotcast, we took one of our very special movie episodes that are usually only available to the Patreon subscribers and made it free for all the fans. Our topic this week? Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. That’s right, this week’s Frotcast harkens back to a simpler time when the Frotcast actually attempted to discuss movies. And this week, for better or worse, we actually succeeded.

With Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, there’s actually a lot to discuss. Like, is this the least plotty Tarantino movie ever? And how about that ending, did it make the movie or was it just Tarantino going back to being Tarantino after seemingly evolving for the previous two hours? Also, what were we to make of Brad Pitt’s character’s past? Was he intended as an antihero or just a super cool guy who maybe also did some pretty messed up stuff? We get into whether Once Upon A Time is reactionary, and of course discuss the backlash over the Bruce Lee scene and Margot Robbie-didn’t-get-enough-lines gate.

We get pretty serious, but we’re still us, so we left plenty of time to discuss a porn star’s incredible obituary and whether Aaron Carter has been flipping rescue dogs to make ends meet.


UNLOCKED: The Wiener-Less Lion King, With Live-Action Matt And Vince



Here it is, folks, our POSITIVELY NO SPOILERS review of the new “live-action” remake of The Lion King, starring live-action, photoreal versions of Matt and Vince. I’m just kidding about the spoilers thing, you actually can’t spoil this movie because it’s basically a shot-for-shot remake of that cartoon we all know and loved from 1994. We loved it because of the totally authentic African music recorded by famous African musicians Elton John and Tim Rice. Will the remake be as good? Well, nothing improves a cartoon like PHOTOREAL LIONS, I always say. Topics include:

-When you say Jon Favreau “directed” this, what does that actually mean?
-Why don’t the lions have dicks?
-How did Billy Eichner manage to transcend this format that destroyed everyone else?
-No but seriously, why don’t the lions have dicks?
-Who decided that the lions shouldn’t have dicks and why?
-Are we too hung up on the lion-dick thing?
