This week, the gang tries to get rid of some of the anxiety surrounding this week's election by discussing their favorite dumb comedies. They discuss everything from Judd Apatow to the demise of Adam Sandler, whether physical comedy can be smart, and why so many comedies are tied to “The College Experience”. Guy proposes a theory to explain why Troop Beverly Hills has a longer shelf life than Down And Out In Beverly Hills and Wynter talks about why she loves Mike Judge.  

That’s My Jam:

 

Margaret Wappler - At Last and  Unsatisfied

Oliver Wang - Somebody Kill Me Please

Wynter Mitchell - Heaven Is A Place On Earth

Guy Branum - Daddy Lessons

 

Each week we’ll add everyone’s jams to this handy Spotify playlist.
