Graham Elwood (“Comedy Film Nerds”) & Susanna Brisk (“MILF Code”) proudly resent the cult classic, “Miami Connection.” They join me at the Hollywood Improv Lab for a live show for a very few (select) people.
Back to this episode… Here’s a trailer for the film and part of the original song that Kathleen covers.
Listen to past live shows…
“A live Tribute to Troma”
With Christian Finnegan (Late Late Show) Mike C. Williams (Blair Witch Project) Asta Paredes & Catherine Corcoran (Return to Nuke’Em High) Robert Prichard (Class of Nuke Em High) and music from Ben Lerman.

Lauren Hennessy proudly (p)resents “Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit.” Chemda Hennessy joins her husband and me (or is it “I?”) to recap this film. The catch? Lauren LOVES this movie! He’s actually presenting this movie. No irony!
This episode is filled with singing, scene recreations and poop jokes. That’s right, poop jokes!
Lauren and Chemda sing parts of the great songs from the movie. Lauren acts out all the parts of the terrible writing.
This married couple not only love this movie, but they hate “Bridesmaids.” They’re not afraid to tell you why. Disagree? Have a favorite Sister Act 2 moment? Comment on our Facebook page.
Show Stuff: This week was supposed to be off, but I loved recording this episode so much I had to put it up right away. The next episode is an interview with the star of “Traxx,” Shadoe Stevens talking about the movie and his career as a radio DJ.
Joel Stein & Kathleen Wilhoite talk “Road House.” Kathleen acted and sang in the movie and gives a candid account of the nuttiness on the set of “Road House.” She talks about the crazy party life on the set and the time Patrick Swayze beat up an extra on camera. As Kathleen puts it, the behind the scenes stories are just as crazy as the movie. Continue reading ““Road House” Sex, drugs and Swayze – What really happened!”→
“Purple Rain.” Prince came out of the movie gate red hot with this movie classic. Michelle Buteau & Ryan Sickler join me to see if the movie still holds up. We are reminded of some serious 80’s fashion Faux pas, lots of sexism and the waitress that can’t stop crying. We learn that Ryan doesn’t know he’s white, Michelle chose a safety school because it was safe and I drank vinegar to keep a crappy job.
Go to the Proudly Resents FB page and tell us your Prince experience. Also tell us what character in the movie you relate to. Mine is the doctor. And tell us what you think “Computer Blue” means. Also, Ryan doesn’t consider himself white? First off, his name is Ryan!!!!
There’s also a trivia contest at the end of the show. Email me at Reachadam@mac.com for a chance to win a Blue Ray of “Purple Rain.” Just tell me what is Jerome’s password for Morris.
This episode wasn’t supposed to go up for a few weeks, but it was so fun, I had to share it.
Jimmy Pardo (Conan) meets “Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park.” Yes, the band Kiss with make up and super powers. Yes, super powers. Watch them fight the evil Kiss created by a mad scientist who happens to work out of the local Six Flags
1978 TV execs. wanted to get that allusive Kiss Army audience. What do they want? The band Kiss, music, magic spells and roller coasters in the background. It’s more “Scooby Do” than “Hard Day’s Night. ” Can’t fail!
We also talk about Jimmy’s popular podcast “Never Not Funny,” his love for Liza and we blow the lid off of Adam Spiegelman’s (Host “Proudly Resents”) great cleaning lady scandal.
Also: Nicko makes an uncomfortable appearance, we introduce new news site @extremelylocal, explore the seedy world of salad bars with Luggage Tuesdays and a plug for a great live show. Go see “Up Late With Adam Fisher” even if one of the writers owes me $100. Cough -Noah Kaufman- Cough.
“Xandu” is both one of the biggest flops & most loved movie of all time. Writer Chris Regan (The Daily Show), actress Judith Benezra and host Adam Spiegelman get critical and historical on this film. Learn how and why it was made. Why Gene Kelly came out of retirement for this, his final movie. Why roller skates? And we ask “Is that graffiti or are you just happy to see me?”
John “Mikl” Thor 80’s rock icon stars in a cheapy horror movie with penis puppets, bad special effects and tons of unexpected laughs. It’s Heavy Metal meets a broke Scooby Doo.
Actor/comedian Joe Mortimer joins Adam Spiegelman (Proudly Resents) to take you behind the scenes of this cult classic. Finish this podcast an maybe you too can rock with the devil (or whatever the monster is, it’s never clear).
