Martin Rickman of the new newsletter Assigned joins the Frotcast this week. We’re discussing Richard Linklater’s new Netflix movie, ‘Hitman,’ starring Glen Powell. But long before we get to that, we breakdown a new Trump clip in which he ask whether it’s better to be electrocuted or eaten by sharks. There’s also a new Dane Cook project, leading us to reflect on the Dane Cook comedy-vehicle era, and a new Maura clip, which makes us try to imagine what great American novels might sound like as Maury Show intros. Finally we discuss the movie, before betting into Axe Body Spray commercials, and reminiscing about all the ridiculous companies that have advertised with the UFC.

David Farrier is the acclaimed documentarian behind Tickled and Mr. Organ (as well as Dark Tourist on Netflix) who also runs a newsletter called Webworm. More importantly, he has a nice Kiwi (New Zealand) accent and we’ve already established that the best qualification one can have to discuss a Martin Lawrence movie on the Frotcast is having an accent. David is here to discuss 1999’s Life, an initial flop-turned cult favorite whose director went on to die in a cocaine related celebrity basketball heart attack (before that he directed other movies I liked, like Beautiful Girls and Blow). It’s a very strange movie, sort of a Jim Crow drama turned into a comedy, but we all liked it more than we expected and it certainly wasn’t the movie we imagined. We also talked about Calvin bumper stickers and Jerry Seinfeld’s latest baffling paean to old school values.

Everyone knows it’s ‘Martin May’ on the Frotcast, so this week we’re talking ‘Blue Streak’ (1999) with Alice Fraser from The Gargle. At least, we start talking about Blue Streak around the one hour mark. Before that, Matt’s child pooped in the bath, inspiring some other stories of inopportune poops, Rudy Giuliani pulls a Naked Gun by leaving his court microphone on while peeing, Ben Affleck and J. Lo are consciously uncoupling again, and former offensive lineman Brendan has finally actually seen ‘The Blind Side,’ which he dubs ‘Birth of a Lineman.’ Because it’s a racist-ass movie, you see.

Jerry Seinfeld apologizes for Bee Movie! A Bitcoin guy gives a commencement speech! Bill Burr DESTROYS Bill Maher in a Battle of the Bills! All these topics and more on this week’s Frotcast, with our guest, comedian Matt Braunger. He’s been on Rogan, which I think means we all get 10 extra dollars by association (is that how that works? We’re not good at business). Meanwhile, Martin Madness, aka Martin March, aka Martin May, continues with our discussion of the 2000 classic, Big Momma’s House. Fun fact: this movie stars THREE Oscar nominees. Not to mention Cedric “The Entertainer.”

This week the Frotcast welcomes Eric Peacock, aka Uwe Bollocks, host of the Soundtracker podcast, to discuss Jerry Seinfeld’s directorial debut, Unfrosted, a movie about the invention of the Pop Tart. And what a movie it is! We also get caught up on Dwayne The Rock Johnson’s alleged history of being late to every set and hiring his dopey brother-in-law/former assistant to run his production company. A company that’s currently $250 million in the hole in his latest terrible-sounding movie (which was the brother-in-law’s idea, by the way). ALLEGEDLY. Also, Brendan went to an ostrich farm so we talk about which large flightless birds we think we could beat up. You know, if it came to it.


Teaser – Frotcast 576: Tracy Keith’s I Love This Fast Car & Grill, with Alison Stevenson



Subscribe to the Frotcast at Patreon.com/Frotcast at the $5 tier or above to hear this premium episode!

Description: Alison Stevenson, comedian and Thick Strip impresario (comediENNE and impresARIA??) joins the podcast this week to talk about Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car” being suddenly cool again, and we mourn the death of Toby Keith, and along with him the George W Bush era, which was maybe an even crappier era than the current one. Holy crap, I just realized George W. Bush was president when I started blogging, I’m circling the freakin’ drain over here. We also discuss Peter Thiel financing the “Enhanced Olympics,” an Olympics for steroid users which compares PED users to historically oppressed classes. It’s a great show!

Also, go see Matt at the Sacramento Punchline on March 17th, and check out Alison’s strip show on Valentine’s Day at the Morroccan Lounge in LA. frotcast@gmail.com, 415 275 0030

Laremy Legel and co-host of the Roundball Rock podcast Sean Keane join the Frotcast this week to discuss Bradley Cooper’s ABSOLUTELY SUMPTUOUS biopic of composer (or is he a conductor???) Leonard Bernstein. He liked women, but also men! That brings us to all manner of related topics, such as, how you can tell when a conductor is good or bad? Our review makes up the last half of the show, and in the first half we discuss Barack Obama’s favorite movies of 2023, and compare notes on living with Bell’s Palsy. Enjoy.

This week on the Frotcast, Pod Yourself A Gun producer Brent Flyberg joins us for a pod about thievery and robots. There’s a bit about Karina Longworth, getting pitched on a pay-for-play listicle to be posted in the publication she used to work for. Then we read an article about “10 Sci-Fi Movies That Aged Poorly” and try to figure out if it was written by a person or AI. Finally we discuss Telemarketers, about sketchy telemarketing firms, who are now using dead people’s voices to solicit money under the guise of police, cancer patients, and the troops. It’s a brave new world! Also, there are jokes.
