ARIYNBF 117 with Garfunkel and Oates LIVE from UCB

This episode is a very special episode (like on Family Ties when Alex got hooked on speed or Facts of Life when the diplomat’s daughter committed suicide, but more fun) because it’s the first one performed and recorded LIVE in front of a crowd at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater in Los Angeles. Someone even wore face paint!

And except for forgetting to have someone take some photos (thanks to the fans who sent some in!) and losing the first two and a half minutes to the sands of time (explained in the episode), things went amazingly well. Seriously. It was super duper fun and I was overjoyed and it was packed and I can’t wait until the next one.

Garfunkel and Oates (Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci) joined the show to talk about birth control, cellulite, Bo Burnham, granola bars that taste like vitamins, spiders, the state of Virginia and an array of other assorted things. They also debuted their new song, “29/31.”

Buy their album, Slippery When Moist!

Dustin joined the show as well and we read an email from his mom. Alison opened the show by reading a list which, if reduced to three key words would be: “anxiety! farts! bran!”

Anxiety! Farts! Bran!

(thanks to @prototypedemo for sending in the photo)

(note: Kate and Gary are just outside the frames of this photo)

There was also some discussion of sex, a round of Just Me Or Everyone with audience participation, an abbreviated Hey, Go Fuck Yourself! and an even more abbreviated Topic Sombrero.

Plus, Dustin outed Alison for her lack of garbage cans in Brooklyn. More about that can be found here.

Here’s Dustin outing me

Alison is writing this in third person and it feels weird but she’s doing it because some portion of it will be used for the iTunes summary and that should say Alison instead of I, Alison thinks.

Also there’s a surprise at the end of the episode which is teased at the beginning of the episode if by “teased” you mean “stated explicitly” and by “surprise” you mean “a song by Alison’s old band, The Angoras.”

Remind Alison to tell you about when she was 6 and a friend of hers promised her a big surprise (“wait here, I have a big surprise!”) and then disappeared while Alison fantasized about all the amazing things that were in store and then the friend came out wearing a party dress. That was the surprise. Big fucking deal! Taffeta!

Alison hates surprises anyway.

So do I.

  • Riki and Kate deserve to be bigger stars.   They have this quirky, cute-girl funniness, with a hint of naughtiness.   People need to see that on a bigger stage.

    Oh, and buying my father a Mangrate for Father's Day to help him “prevent dry meat and flare-ups” just sounds wrongish.

    This comment is not safe for work and might also serve as a somewhat graphic and fear specific JMOE talking point. Listening to the live episode, which was a lot of fun, the NuvaRing talk at the top of the show reminded me of a period of obsessive thinking I was afflicted with some time ago regarding an exgirlfriend who also used this same type of birth control. So when this woman described to me what exactly the NuvaRing was, the action of its insertion and extraction, and most important to my stupid, filterless brain, its dimension, I became concerned that, while engaged in intimate relations (my favorite euphemism for sex, relations), this ring shaped contraceptive would work its way onto “myself” and thus become a cockring (sorry, I couldn't come up with a softball term for this device). I knew, academically, that this thought was ridiculous; I was told so, more than once, but it was an idea I couldn't shake for quite a while. Just me or anyone?  

  • Michael Pemulis

    And now I just came to the part of the show where my fear was discussed (I'm listening to the episode, and commenting, in fits, between doing the job I'm paid to do and staring out the window at the parking lot). So, apologies, and disregard my previous comment. I am not unique. Thank god.

  • hahaha “Steak Knife! Can I borrow your steak knife?!?!?!” I work in a quiet office, and this show made me laugh out loud a bunch of times. I didn't even notice i was doing it until I looked around and noticed everybody was staring at me. I thought, “Hey! Go f*ck yourselves!!!!!” Awesome show, Alison, thanks.

    Is it just me or everyone?:
    Who is Dustin? I've listened to every show, and I thought it was just Alison and Gary plus the guest…
    P.S. “Steak Kife” kicks ass 🙂

    I have been a huge adam carolla fan for years, and although i really loved teressa, you are so much better. since you have joined, the show has gotten incredible. ur fake book is amazing and u just seem to be faster and funnier than everyone else on the show. I recently just started listening to your podcast and it is also amazing. its very compelling and always makes me laugh. As hard as it is for me to say this, since im such a huge adam carolla fan, you are now the main reason i listen to the show. and one-on-one interviews (even with great guests like dr drew) always disappoint me because you arent in them. I am now a big fan of your podcast, and I wanted to thank you for the hours of joy you have given me while studying for exams.

    Alison, you are awesome.  Keep up the great work.  I have a question.  Why do you pronounce holocaust “hole-a-caust?”

  • boinkity

    Does Dustin's mom really think I am a chick?!!?! Dustin seems pretty cool, and I would enjoy watching some football games and drinking some beers with the guy. I just can't see us together in a romantic way.

  • This episode was so good, I bought a Mangrate for a friend.  I don't even know if he has a grill.

  • DJ finally got to listen to this episode while on a long late-night drive and enjoyed it very much and managed to stay awake for the whole show with energy to spare and no need for Red Bull. As a fan, DJ wishes he could get up to LA from San Diego and see one of these live shows sometime in the near future.

     It was the OMG… “Dustin Goot!!” comment that seemed promising as possibly a chick enamored with Dustin…..didn't meant to offend, of course, and I'm sure he'd enjoy watching some football games and drinking beers with you too.       …….Dustin's mom
