Mike Blejer

Holiest of Molies, tune your rolliest of pollies to the showiest of showies!

Ahem. All that is to say, we talked religion at this month's Malignant Brain Humor Live. Our panel featured comedic voices from the religious to the non. Also the show featured a video from Pastor Extraordinaire Tom Ryberg, check it out.

As always, if you have comedy vids that you especially like which touch on or around the subject, please post them below!

Religiolously yours,
Mike

86: Political Correctness - LIVE

Mike Blejer

Listen Now

Loved this panel. Check them out on the episode and individually.

Hey. Sometimes people say words. And then other people get angry at them. And then we fight over whether the people who got angry were wrong to get so angry or if the people who said the words were wrong to say the words. WHO'S THE REAL VICTIM HERE? WHO DO I SHOOT? (Non-Trigger warning: There will be no shootings at the show).

We'll be talking about political correctness. Is it a thing? Is it too much of a thing? Does it tarnish the good name of Politics? Is it even that correct?

The people on this show. They're phenomenal. You are going to like them and it. And I'm going to like you for coming.

These are their names.
