The two recent Adam-less episodes are, I hate to say, so much better.  Stav and Nick just feed on each other's uninterrupted silliness, and Nick laughs so much more in them.  I get the vibe that the two of them also facilitate each other's depressive tendencies, so better Adam be in the mix and occasionally ruin the flow, than have death really ruin it.

Love the occasional Adam-less episodes but I (and I think they) would quickly become exhausted if it were the norm. I'm not even certain that this is because of Adam himself, or if it could be literally anyone in that third seat, but there's a sense of tension in these one-on-one eps that feels a bit high wire, like they're both a bit nervous about dead air.

While I love all the boys, I do wish Adam would have followed Stav's example and used the exposure/financial security of the show to improve as a stand-up. I think it's made Stav more confident and interesting as the show's gone on, without ever losing his loveable lunatic cackle.

Edit: lol, 8 pages talking about a cum podcast.

Adam has the odd skill of seemingly bringing absolutely nothing to the mix yet I think it would get a bit grating if it were just Nick and Stav every single time.

Although if you listen back to some of the older ones Adam can actually be very funny and has some good bits but in the last couple of months he’s started to bring absolutely fuck all to the table in terms of actually trying to say funny things. Sometimes I do wonder if the constant baiting of him has actually worn down a lot of his confidence and he just can’t be bothered to try and talk anymore. I think I’ve mentioned it before in this thread but there’s a couple of instances where Nick’s said stuff that’s just come across as being properly nasty as opposed to ‘lol bants’ and the atmosphere’s gone a bit weird for the rest of the episode. Still, 15 odd grand a month to take that seems like a pretty fair deal.

Yeah, Nick can just decide to be properly hurtful if he wants to. The rare combination of social hyper-awareness, and being hurtful subordinated to being funny will do that.

I remember one time he called out Adam for thinking about suicide as purely a tool to get revenge on girls that have wronged him, that seemingly came from nowhere and really got to him. I think a lot of it is projection.

I was thinking of a bit a while ago where Adam was clearly trying something out and Nick just interrupted him and sneered something like “Oh, this is that bit you’ve been trying live for ages that never works in a really jolting and dismissively aggressive manner that quite clearly hurt Adam a bit and he just didn’t say anything for the rest of the episode. Maybe I’m reading too much into it but I distinctly remember at the time listening to it and thinking it was pretty harsh.

It is a little worrying how screwed Adam is if the show goes tits-up. It must be quite an uncomfortable situation.

The 'Cool Adam' episode is great.

I've been catching up with a backlog of episodes recently.
I just listened to the one where they spent half the episode doing 'gay Jackass' bits.
Most I've laughed/felt embarrassed for laughing so much  in a while.
Phil getting his dick sunked is just the dumbest thing ever.

Bit edgelord for me though, maybe i'm just boring.

Kind of growing on me. I just wish it weren't so peurile. Some of the back and forth and quips are great but its very laugh free sometimes with the 'lol gay faggot' material.

That's their best stuff!

I've relistened from the start recently which has been a joy. I even plucked up the courage to listen to the David cross episode. I think Cross knew he was wasting his time right from the start, but actually plays along pretty well.

Not for me, Clive.

The only proper uncontrollable smiling and chuckles was the 420 stuff. That got me.

This might not win you over, but in an odd way it's kind of crucial to how the show works. It's entirely improvisational so the flow of the episodes is kind of like listening to an experimental album where the complex, catchy songs are spread out amongst formless, loosely cluttered interlude pieces. An entire album duration of the big stuff might even be too much to digest, especially when you consider how feverish, convoluted or downright crass the stronger content is.

Picture it like "Disco Volante" but instead of avant-garde jazz with flashes of metal, noise, techno and traditionalist music, it's stupidly elaborate and hilarious bits launched from scraped-off-the-U-bend puns and observations, floating in a sea of Adam is a cuck and Stav is a fat bitch.

Plus it allows for a super real listening experience. During my lengthy peak of listening to the first hundred or so, it often felt like I was sitting in the room with them. It has about a 70% hit rate, in terms of overall quality and based on each episode, but when it hits, it's incredible and I feel like what it's doing is strangely important, artistically. Nick Mullen is, dare I say it? a troubled genius?

Yeah like i said it has it's moments. I'm looking forward to this David Cross one, I must say.

Although I hope they don't make it a habit of a one of them being absent, it works better with 3 than 2.

The fact it's all improv is pretty impressive. However, when you've been spoilt by Athletico Mince...

As the world gets more insane and the left gets more annoying, it feels increasingly vital to have these fucking idiots talk shit all the time.

Oh I know, I meant in a more general sense - the more "woke" people get, the more I need Cum Town. Is this what Bernard manning fans felt like?

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.
