Frotcast: Billy Corben On ‘God Forbid’



Good Night And Good Cuck

Director Billy Corben is absolutely SMASHING the record for the director with the most Frotcast appearances, with three or maybe even four already. Who can even say?! The man behind Cocaine Cowboys, The U, 537 Votes, Screwballs, et. al. is always a great interview — a “raconteur,” you might even say, which happens to be the name of his production company — so any time he has a movie out it’s a great excuse to get him on.

This week (month?) he has ‘God Forbid’ out on a Hulu, a documentary about Jerry Falwell Jr.’s swingery relationship with a “Miami pool boy” named Giancarlo Granda, who was really only a pool boy for one year of his life but now is forever associated with the phrase because of the scandal. Jerry ALLEGEDLY liked to watch Giancarlo have sex with his wife, Becki, but, because Giancarlo and Jerry caught tied up in a real estate deal with some sketchy Miami dudes, they ended up suing and the whole pool boy/swinger thing got out. ALSO, Trump lawyer Michael Cohen knew about the relationship and has claimed that he used this knowledge as leverage in trying to get Jerry Jr. to support Trump’s bid for president — which Jerry Jr did, and probably had some hand in evangelicals voting for Trump in record numbers.

Phew, now you know why this conversation lasted for a whole hour. Lotta ins, lotta outs, lotta what have yous. Hope you enjoy, and don’t forget to check out God Forbid on Hulu.


TEASER: Frotcast 520 – ‘House Of The Dragon’ And Awful New Startups, With Jessica Sele



To hear the full episode, subscribe to the Frotcast at Patreon dot com slash frotcast.

This week on the Frotcast, comedian Jessica Sele joins Matt and Vince to discuss oh so many things. Things such as House Of The Dragon, the new HBO prequel for Game Of Thrones about House Targaryen. It opened with a dragon and I went “ugh” inside and then I watched the entire thing. Does that mean I have to apologize to all the Baby Yoda people I made fun of because I’ve proved that I’m just as much of a piggie? We also discuss the rottweiler that may or may not have caused Sylvester Stallone’s divorce, as well as the bull mastiff that Sylvester Stallone got tattooed on his arm over his wife’s face. Which is a normal thing that everyone does. Finally, we talk about a new startup that promises to make any user sound white and American over the phone, regardless of their actual voice. Technology, is there anything it can’t do?

DESCRIPTION:

TEASER: Frotcast 457 – Havin a Mank, With Laremy Legel



If you love Mank puns and content in general, become a Frotcast Patron now at Patreon.com/Frotcast to hear the full episode.

Description:

By now you’ve noticed the internet’s recent obsession with dank Mank memes and this week Vince and Matt have decided to see what the hubbub is all about with David Fincher’s new Netflix feature Mank. Mank is the story of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, widely known as the guy who co-wrote Citizen Kane. The movie is 2+ hours of Gary Oldman pretending to be his arch nemesis, a Hollywood socialist Jew. Despite being in black and white and trying very hard to do an art, the movie was a solid B+.

Also, the boys discuss that drunk “Stop the Steal” girl Mellissa Carone and her recent legal troubles and sordid past as a dancer at the Bada Bing. Seriously. She worked the Bing. I’m not even fucking joking. Jokes are officially dead. Enjoy!


UNLOCKED: Frotcast 454: Toobin On Sorkin In ‘Trial Of The Chicago 7’



Hey all, this episode is from our Patreon bonus episodes but we feel like you piggies needed a free one. Here it is:

This week on the Frot, we’re talking about the hot new Sacha Baron Cohen project currently setting the internet wags on fire. That’s right, I’m talking about The Trial Of The Chicago 7, Aaron Sorkin’s new Netflix joint about hippies, protests, the radical left, broads who need a good talking to, brave men in uniform, and courtrooms (you’re free until next week, Rudy Giuliani). We discuss Sacha Baron Cohen’s bonkers  Boston accent (so strange coming from a guy who has spent his life doing weird accents in real-life situation) and the filmography of Aaron Sorkin in general. Sorkin had it all with this project — Boomer heroes, courtroom drama, a packed cast, a premise generally far less obnoxious than The Newsroom, and best of all, NO WOMEN. His whole wheelhouse. After years of giving him a hard time, we were so ready to finally give him his due. And yet he even managed to make this one kind of annoying at the end.

Before that, we discuss this week’s top story. That’s right, I’m talking about Jeffrey Toobin cranking his hog on a Zoom call. You’d think that would be the perfect joke for at least a week, but no, the internet had to quickly separate into warring camps of which teachable moment this incident best represented. We were going to debate that one in earnest, but you remember the Frotcast rule: no hugging, no learning. Only lumming. Finally, it’s an episode worth paying a premium for. No refunds.

 


Frotcast 422: Matt Tries To Get Fired, The Exciting Conclusion, With Jessica Sele



Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah and sure, Happy Kwanzaa, I suppose. It’s the most wonderful time of the year and to make things just that much more wonderful, Matt and Vince have invited Jessica Sele to the Frotquarters for a very special episode of the Frotcast. It’s special because Matt finally got the Christmas present he had been hoping for… he got his ass fired right before Christmas with severance and – since he was fired without cause – unemployment. IT’S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE! Also, he may have yelled at a couple of his bosses.

We also discuss things like Trump owning the libs for their need to conserve water, the true story behind Noah Baumbach’s Marriage Story, and Matt’s trip to Disneyland with Francesca (his girlfriend who he loves very much and who loves him back.) So don you now your gay apparel and fa la la la la la, la la la listen to this dope ass episode of the Filmdrunk Frotcast. Get bonus content at Patreon.com/Frotcast.


Frotcast 409: Pray The Warts Away, With Jason Webb



Ask and you shall receive: back by popular demand on this week’s Frotcast, it’s Joe Sinclitico. Joe is freshly engaged to be married (!!!), which doesn’t stop him from talking about his stint as a porn cameraman in his mid 20s (another listener-requested story). Comedian Jason Webb is also joining us this week, talking about his preacher father, his North Carolina upbringing, and the incredible story of the time a man used prayer to cure his plantar wart (you have to hear this one).

We also talk the best Tom Selleck movies, and of course Game Of Thrones. We answer all the burning questions, like whether Bran is the Night King and which Stark kid is the best. Is Game Of Thrones the best normie-approved cultural phenomenon we can hope for? Or is it the cultural juggernaut known as the FilmDrunk Frotcast? As always, subscribe to our Patreon for this week’s bonus content and leave us a review on iTunes (and thanks for the recent ones, you guys).

You’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.


Frotcast 404: Abducted In Plain Sight, With Francesca Fiorentini



Hello Frotland! Matt Lieb here and we’ve got your weekly fix of the Filmdrunk Frotcast. This week, we had the hilarious and beautiful and my girlfriend Francesca Fiorentini in the LA Frotquarters and we discuss everything from Jussie Smollett, Jacob Wohl, to our nice little day trip to Palm Springs that we just got back from where she and I lounged by the pool all day. She’s my girlfriend. Eventually, Vince and I discuss Netflix’s Abducted in Plain Sight about a super sexual predator who will seduce an entire family just to get to a little girl. It’s pretty amazing and horrifying. So have a listen! And give us some stars and a review on iTunes, if you want. THANKS!
