Adam was on a good run too, his Nancy Pelosi tweet earlier in the week seemed to bait a fair few people.

Did he say anything specifically to Chelsea Clinton worthy of a suspension?

I guess calling her ugly might have been what clinched it, but it was rather obviously a joke. Or maybe not obviously, perhaps this is a generational clash of different levels of irony

I know exactly what you mean.
It's an antidote to the increasingly narrow and strained discourse of modern life.
Sometimes, I just need to hear crass jokes about gay sex or Chinese people...
I don't know how other people cope tbh.

I've just been reading some other red hot leftist takes on the Chelsea Clinton thing elsewhere. The main criticism of Cum Town, especially amongst Chapo fans who hate that they're friends, is that this is exactly what makes the show so problematic. But yeah, increasingly, and despite my personal dislike of the endless 'Adam is gay' banter, that's kind of what makes me respect Nick's stance. He knows exactly what he's doing. Irony really is dead in the mainstream, though.

Hopefully this warrants a large slice of Cool Adam in this week's ep

that's a bit of a cliché, if you don't go on social media you can easily avoid woke people (or woke discourse). you just want to hear this kind of banter. nothing wrong with that of course.

As far as I'm aware, the vast majority of Chapo fans have zero problem with Cum Town and there's a huge crossover in listenership, and the antipathy between fanbases is something that is massively overblown on the Cum Town subreddit where 'Chapo fag' is often used as synonym for 'woke' even though Chapo is clearly one of the least 'woke' politics shows available. It just seems like a convenient fiction cooked up by people who are overly eager to have Cum Town unbesmirched by the association with Chapo, rather than the other way round. They want pure comedy untainted by politics. Fair enough, but don't pretend that there's any actual substantial animosity from the Chapo contingent. The Chapo crowd aren't the kind of guys who call things 'problematic', that seems like another misunderstanding that arises from conflating the extremely online libs and the 'dirtbag left'

I wasn't trying to pretend anything, for reference. I'm nowhere near as literate in Very Online politics as yourself Monsieur, and I only began to dip in and out of Cum Town again recently. I've never really listened to Chapo at all; It was just a poor observation from a quick scroll. Nonetheless, I think anyone who expects Cum Town, or anything, to exist untainted by politics right now, is pretty delusional or wildly optimistic.

Well now it's me who has cast too broad of a statement. I didn't mean to say that you were pretending, but rather that it's something that the fanbase seems to indulge in, and it's a fiction that seems to spread easily and gets parroted, particularly on the subreddit. My fault for not delineating properly as to when I was talking broadly about the fanbase or specifically about your post

The Cum Town subreddit always weirds me out a bit, it seems pretty clear they've a contingent of fans who are pretty damn funny but a huge part of the reddit seems to be a combo of either people who seem to have a pretty genuinely shitty streak or just extremely unfunny people.

Their twitter following in general seems better, maybe it's just the way reddit works pushes the dumbest memeiest shit to the top of their threads

Yeah, the reddit is about 50/50 (being generous). I find it pretty easy to filter the shit out - and it’s worth it in the main.

Some guys there are so stupid. Like, legit angry at Stav for ‘stopping’ from Nick saying the N word, not realising that that’s literally the joke they’re doing.

With Chapo, though I’m not a huge fan myself, I think it definitely helps to know they’re friends in real life. One of the best things about Cum Town is that the agenda is never explained but, starting out, I needed that little hint that they’re not really awful to allow me to fully enjoy it.

If any other podcast did a ten minute riff about gay Donald Trump it would most likely be terrible and cringe inducing but fucking hell I just couldn’t stop laughing at Nicks impression.

“This guy saw and he said, that’s literally the gayest sex I’ve ever seen. I’m just telling you what I’ve heard”

The one that really got me relatively recently was Nick's riff about Christian Bale hooking up with someone, whipping out his micropenis and saying "Yeah, I'm preparing for a role at the moment, I'm playing a guy with a really small dick."

Sometimes I'll be listening to an episode and basically finding it incredibly boring for like, 40 minutes. Then Stav makes a lame, half hearted reference/pun about eating pussy or having a big dick or Adam being gay. I sigh and wonder what I'm doing with my time. Then a riff like the San Frangelico guy or the extended Bam Margera stuff comes out and I remember Nick Mullen is seriously one of the most talented, naturally funny blokes going right now (although weirdly his stand-up is only mediocre).

Have to say they do have one of the most annoying fanbases for "trying to unsuccessfully ape the style of the people they are fans of and completely butchering it". And I am genuinely worried for Stav's health. That man has got massive and just takes so many drugs.

Listening to last week's, I was suddenly overcome with hysterics in the supermarket when some discussion about Liam Neeson lead to Nick talking about "Soullllllll Hospital!"

"Stop dancing, I just need my insulin!"

I think he probably got fucked a bit by starting too young. He was somewhat established at 17 hanging out with a bunch of 25+ year olds, with his standup he's trying to do standup like much older guys would do, whereas he'd've been better off just doing shit to amuse himself on youtube or 4chan for those years.

Nah, he's just too cynical and down on himself to muster any sort of passion for it. The gentrification of stand up, to put it like that, has ruined it for the outcasts who just want to make jokes. Nanette is stand up now. I tend to agree with him, it fucking sucks most of the time. Either anodyne rubbish or soliciting clapter. The funniest stand up I've ever seen is Eddie Murphy, and there is no way he would make it today. It has become a career option for upper middle class people who would become lawyers a generation ago.

But yeah, Nick is way funnier in conversation than he is at stand up. Gay Donald Trump was wild.

I thought naming the ep after a no-mark when Bam was on was a bit, but that Elvis-impersonating club owner was easily the highlight of the episode.  You could hear the boys relax as they fell in love with him.  Feel a bit bad for Bam's mate after they dumped on him when he'd left- I pictured him listening to the ep and, like Ralph in that Choo Choo Choose You episode, freeze-framed the moment when his heart breaks.

By the way, at least a third, maybe more, of Bam's capitals were wrong, which is much funnier.

I thought it was shite. Bam's not funny, he doesn't get it, and he's a total washout. The audio levels were terrible as well.

Re: Cum Town Podcast
« Reply #265 on: March 09, 2019, 03:31:49 PM »
I thought the Bam stuff was rubbish, and yeah, he didn't really get it.

The Elvis impersonator/comedy club owner bit was fantastic, however. Loved all the inane detail of his life, and was in hysterics at Nick's, "Did you ever fuck a woman and then she realised you're not Elvis?" line.

Fair play to him refusing to say “suck me, suck me very dick” out of respect for the king though.

Trouble in paradise ... ???

The last episode mistakenly included an argument Stav and Nick had about Stav eating himself to death. It was supposed to be cut out, but Nick forgot I guess (or did he???). It has since been removed from the episode, but you can listen to it here: https://www.reddit.com/r/Cumtown/comments/b02maf/unedited_nick_stav_fight/

The way Nick quickly shuts down Adam, a fine mixture of tragedy and comedy in that moment (mostly tragedy).

It is funny when Stav says he's going to be bouncing his grandchildren on his knee and Nick tells him he'll be lucky to have a knee.
