The holocaust denier's on today's Joe Rogan podcast https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TvHqvYesr9M

At two hours forty minutes that's the longest Adam Egret's ever gone without mentioning the smoke stacks at Auschwitz.

Egret says the podcast is going to be back in the fall (autumn).
Must say, he's looking rather spiteful.

Although he snuck in a Schindler's List mention early on.

'Colourised Schindler's List' went right over Joe Rogan's head, despite his extensive knowledge of just murdering

Fair point. These revisionists can't help themselves.

Very exciting news that NML is to return in one form or another. Joe Rogan enthusiastically agreed to be a guest.

Actually, having actually now listened to the whole thing all the way through, Egret manages to squeeze a mention of the holocaust right at the very end. He just couldn't help himself.

This recent upload was in my YouTube recommendations - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__vjGxzUyjw

Norm on Tom Green's AXS Show (whatever that is) from 2014, in between seasons of NML. He doesn't say much that I've not heard him say elsewhere but an interview with Norm is never boring. At one point they cut to comedy guests including Harley Morenstein who seems a tad pissed off and mentions that he'd heard Norm say his name "on the computer" - Presumably a reference to that YouTube comedy event when Norm said "All the stars are here.... Harley Morenstein".

What does CAB make of Tom Green? My only exposure to him has been through this, his appearance on NML and a couple of older internet shows he did where his guests included Norm and Gregg Turkington. I remember Freddy Got Fingered being absolutely panned by everyone, but I've never seen it or any of his comedy. Anything good worth seeking out?

I know next to nothing about Tom Green but for some reason I remember a sketch (maybe in the 90s?) where he painted his parents’ car with a lesbian sex scene (because they like lesbians) and naming it The Slut Mobile.

Thanks for the link to the AXS show. I was going to recommend Live in Philadelphia as the best example of the stand-up he's been doing on a world tour for the last ten years. He put it on Youtube at the end of 2018 but it's been made private now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLmhYGj1bA0

Maybe you can get access or find it somewhere else. There are shorter clips of some of the same bits on Youtube and some lower quality recordings of other full sets but try to find that one.

Here's a shorter set with some of the same material that he put up recently: TOM GREEN POP UP STAND UP SET AT HOLLYWOOD IMPROV

Freddy Got Fingered has a cult following and a few fans here.

Red Letter Media did a good review of Freddy Got Fingered, if you don't feel like diving into the whole thing.

Is the AXS show his old Canadian one? I remember he carried one of his own shits through the audience and an old man touched it.

Ha! I quite liked that. Those kind of pranks can often backfire and just end up being cringey, but as it's his parents it's done with a degree of knowing love. Reminds me of one of the Jackass films where they put an alligator (I think) in the bedroom of one of their parents.

Cheers - I'll check it out and have a look around online for a full set.

A great suggestion. Watching the FGF review on RLM right now. Mike loves it and I'm sold on it. It looks truly bizarre. I just read a two sentence review of it- One of those two sentences: "The Trout Mask Replica of cinema.".

I'm not sure what AXS is. Norm made a couple of references to it being owned by a sports celebrity of some kind.
