[Now Unlocked] This week on the Frotcast, long-time friend of the Frotcast Alison Stevenson (twitter.com/JustaboutGlad) joins Matt and Vince in the virtual Frotquarters to discuss: Shia Labeouf’s new “Creeper” tattoo and his new movie, The Tax Collector. As well as, “brownface,” the character evolution of ex-Disney stars in general, and BOMBSHELL: Matt reveals that he briefly went to high school with Shia Labeouf. We discuss Alison’s love life and what it’s like to try to Tinder in a time of quarantine. Can you still smash, bro? After that we discuss Seth Rogen’s new movie, An American Pickle, about an unfrozen Jewish pickle man. Also: Seth Rogen’s new views on Zionism, Israel and what Jews are taught about it in general, and BOMBSHELL: Alison reveals that her mother is Israeli. In any case, a very fun Frot was had and we hope that all the piggies love it as much as we love our piggies.
For this month’s bonus live riff, the FilmDrunk Frotcast has selected Limitless, the original (lol, kinda?) “what if hunnert percent brain?” classic from 2011. It’s a film that plays like the screenwriter took a bunch of Adderall and wrote a film about SUPER Adderall that gives you superpowers. What if Bradley Cooper took Adderall? Would he court Lady Gaga even more meticulously? Turns out he mostly just gets a haircut and puts on a new suit, transforming himself from David Foster Wallace into Bradley Cooper, handsome movie star.
Joining us on this adventure are Joey Devine from the Roundball Rock podcast and Alison Stevenson of V Single. This is just a teaser, but you can get the entire episode by subscribing to our Patreon at the $20 level. That way you can hear our entire live riff of Limitless PLUS Matt telling the full story of finding out an ex was cheating on him from hearing her on a podcast. What a fun episode! Totally worth your donation! You’ll also get to hear all of our movie review podcasts. You’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.
Holy hell, gang, can you believe we’ve done 400 episodes of these?? What is that, like 17 straight years of podcasting? With that much pod time is it any wonder that one original host has died and another gone into hiding?
Anyway, we didn’t plan a massive, self-indulgent extravaganza episode to celebrate, but it is a pretty damn good episode nonetheless. We have actual TV star Jake Weisman from Comedy Central’s Corporate (season two premieres tonight!), who joins us to talk about creating the show, the despair of working, and he and I being the first two people on the internet to admit hating Three Billboards. Oh, and about that time he wrestled a heckler on stage and a bag of cocaine fell out of the guy’s pocket.
Comedian, writer, and Thicc Strip pioneer Alison Stevenson also returns, to talk about the high-highs and low-lows of the stand up life, and to yes-and all of Matt Lieb’s jokes. Hooray! You’ll never be lonely when you have the Frotcast.

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.
