Title: Cum Town Podcast
Post by: Large Noise on July 08, 2016, 12:14:34 AM
Anyone else listening to this?

Funny and endearingly unplanned/shambolic podcast by some American stand-ups you've never heard of. Latest episode featured Jim Norton, with whom they had no chemistry whatsoever, which is reassuring.

Ugh, why'd they have Jim Norton on? I might skip that one.
I've been listening to Cumtown since they were mentioned on Chapo Trap House.
Those are my 2 favourite podcasts atm. Highly recommended.
Best opening and closing theme ever.

It was pretty throwaway but in the latest episode where Nick changes the lyrics of 'eye of the tiger' to 'guy who fucks tigers' has amused me no end.
It's popped into mind several times today and I've had to refrain from laughing.
Just earlier I was I sat on the loo and it popped into my head again, so I allowed myself a good giggle.

Longtime twitter follower of Nick and the Chapo lads so both of these are an absolute delight, lost count of the times Cum Town has made me burst out laughing at work.

Couldn't make it through the Cross interview last week though, fucking painful. Convinced myself it was an elaborate gag they were all in on for a few minutes until it became apparent it was just a huge cock-up.

This was my first listen to the podcast and I assumed it was a (unfunny) joke. Seems like everyone likes this though so maybe I'll give it another chance.

I still don't understand what that interview was. Sounded like they purposely made it awkward and crap but I'm not sure.
But yeah if that's all you've heard then give them another chance, episode 1 is probably a good place to start.

Started listening to the David Cross one after it was mentioned in the Richard Herring thread but plan to finish it. The guy seemed to be struggling a bit with Cross' improv at the beginning and kept repeating how they only had one set of headphones. His response to Cross explaining that he was only representing himself part-time was to mention the headphones thing. Again.

Bit of a soggy start but fingers crossed. No pun.

The Cross interview is really strange.

They were definitely fucking with him to some extent. They gave him absolutely nothing when he tried to be funny, and the way they were relaying what he said to each other gave it the air of a prank call, with the listener privy to more of what was going on than Cross was.

But yeah, don't let that put you off. It's genuinely a brilliant podcast. Unaffected, and avoids the self-congratulatory zaniness which a lot of comedy (especially improv style) podcasts slip into at times. At the same time though, there are loads of jokes and bits, so it avoids that other common comedy podcast trap of confusing lighthearted chumminess and inane banter for actual comedy.

Cum Town is very funny, thanks for the tip. It's sort of the exact opposite of something like Adam Buxton's podcast (it's offensive, has no structure, is made with very little care) and I have room in my heart for both.

I'm bumping this thread because a friend got me into this the other day and it's fucking brilliant. The unplanned chemistry between them is absolutely golden, I've been laughing like a drain on so many commutes this week and I'm only like five episodes into it.

Episode four with the Seth Dickfield character talking about the new Ghostbusters, I was listening to it at 6:30am today on the way to the hospital for some SuRgErY aWoOoOo and I straight up burst into loud, hysterical laughter at the bus stop.

"Think of how hard it is for those women. The male Ghostbusters made more money back in the '80s than those women are making now, and think about how much more work they have to do with all those extra ghosts in New York after 9/11!"

I can't wait to listen to every bloody episode.

The recent Cum Town live episode was interesting, hearing each of their stand up sets. In contrast to his whipping boy status on the podcast, Adam's was probably the most structured and accomplished. It was strange hearing Nick doing a planned set that was about half as edgy as you'd expect and Stav telling actual jokes rather than just laughing like a maniac at something Nick's just said.

Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast
Post by: Sin Agog on August 13, 2017, 11:30:09 PM
You mean it's just boring rather than cruel?  Adam seems bothered not one iota by it all.  It has become a bit in a pod that was supposed to be beyond bits.  Personally, I find the lengthy tech reviews more interminable, though I get what they're doing.  Will still stick with it, though, because with Stern and O&A and all of those things dead in the water, this does scratch an itch unscratched elsewhere.

And because Nick has said he isn't bothered by anyone posting links to rips of the premium content, and no one's linked it here yet, here are the premium episodes.  Haven't listened to any in quite awhile, but I wouldn't be surprised if the time you started to burn out on Cum Town was when they started to do these, and maybe stretch themselves a little thin. The ones I did listen to were often a lot better than the main episodes. https://www.reddit.com/r/Cumtown/comments/5fo5eh/premium_cumtown_episodes_mirror_updated_weekly/

Yeah, basically. It seems to take up about three quarters of each episode these days. There was a recent-ish one that started brilliantly with all three of them reminiscing about ropey stand-ups they'd been on bills with (I think it was the episode where Nick witheringly remembers 'The Drum Comic') but then quickly tipped into extended Adam ragging and got immediately less interesting.

Yes! Thank you for this! If I was going to do a Patreon for anyone out of principle, it would be UYD (which is still very good and they've recently started putting all the live episodes on Patreon).

I still love Cum Town, to be honest. The bullying of Adam isn't the funniest bit, but then Adam is a little bit hack-y and half invites some of the abuse anyway. They come back each week and do it again, so no harm done I guess. It's still the first podcast I reach for when it comes out. Nick actually seems a bit more relaxed in general, I was thinking recently - he certainly seems to be laughing at the others' jokes more. It's funny, as obnoxious as they try to be, I still find them infinitely more likeable than the Chapo lot.

I was kind of indulging the Cumplainers here to be sociable, but I actually think many of my favourite moments have been from fairly recent episodes, like Chinese Jews (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVGqsHxgpVw&spfreload=10) and Alt-Right Homer (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tNg5J7MXgA4).

Like you, my eyes just light up every time I see Cum Town in my podcast feed.  It is a fact that the world has changed underneath us, and socially for the better in most ways (i.e. caring about the consequences of how we treat one another), but goddamn I need an outlet for my impish urge to always say exactly the thing everyone is trying hard not to say, and Cum Town is that for me.  Without it I'd just blurt that stuff out myself, and that's no good for anyone.

+1 for Cumtown. It's a rare thing for people to actively try to come off as dumber than they are, and I get the sense Nick Mullen does that a lot. It makes the no-effort-whatsoever 'you're gay' insults/puns/jokes a lot more funny than they should be.
Thanks for the bodega boys recommendation. Shout out to Tuesdays With Stories as another excellent comedy pod with good chemistry - Mark Normand and Joe List on that one. If you go back a few months to when Joe was touring with Louis CK and Mark with Amy Schumer they have some absolutely brilliant anecdotes, but all episodes are worth a listen.

Yeah, thats a shitty joke. But if you listen to the podcast for a couple episodes he comes across as a genuinely nice guy, as opposed to say anthony cumia, who is a terrible person.
Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast
Post by: Sin Agog on December 26, 2017, 10:55:53 PM
You could take any random Mullen twitter post and give it the stark crime scene lighting and it wouldn't look good, but you'd be just as off as the alt-righters re-posting them with a 'finally a MAN who says it like it is' affixed on top.  Like Hank said, he's actually somehow come out of years of latchkey internet parenting a level-headed guy, who just happens to be so fixated with unimpeded free speech that he (used to, before he was banned) would rattle off no-brainer bait like that just on sheer principal.

Still loving Cum Town as much as ever.  Here's a collection of Nick's appearances on other pods for anyone fit to burst from forcing themselves to be polite in front of the fam over the last few days: https://www.reddit.com/r/Cumtown/comments/7k563d/nick_on_other_podcasts/. Weirdly, the two Cumia eps on there are almost as good as any regular Cum Town episode.  He has become one of those Carolla types, itching to rant about some brainwashed yada yadas at any opportunity, but he's always been a giving audience when a comic's in the room, laughing heartily and letting his own nascent jokes ebb off if needed (especially rare from anyone in the comedy world).  I always thought he was strangely likeable, despite being about as politically far away from me as it gets.  I think it was one bit with Patrice when he talked about daydreaming for hours on his factory job about being given secret alien technology that warmed me to him.

Do you remember what you meant by this? I had this in mind when I first started listening to cum town and when I finally caught up to that episode I didn't really notice anything except when Nick threatened Adam with a knife for touching his wires. Was it that?
I do think he's a very interesting character, in real life and the slightly exaggerated persona he puts on. Lucky Nick does seem like a good guy really. I liked that bit with Brandon Wardell where Nick pretends to pause the show and says 'don't you EVER talk about how nice I am to you in real life'.
Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast
Post by: Sin Agog on December 26, 2017, 11:35:33 PM
I forget.  Let me try and guess what I meant... I learnt from Nick's recent trip down the pedo conspiracy rabbit hole that he goes through extremely manic phases from time to time. I think maybe I just caught that manic note in his voice in that particular episode and sensed something was off with him.  Or maybe I was just in a weird mood when I listened to it?  Glad you got into it at least.  Haha I bet you wished Nick had for once let Adam talk when he tried to bring up The Return a couple of times.
Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast
Post by: Hank Venture on December 27, 2017, 09:32:50 AM
Was it when Nick was a dancing cactus, and Adam and Stav was warned he might prick them?

I think Nick is a bit off as well. He said «he might try to kill himself again» a couple of episodes back. Then you have stuff like this: https://youtu.be/SRwL5ZMQsa0

Also his coke habit.

Yeah, still fucking loving this show. Still the only one I actually pay Patreon for. It's just refreshing to have something hilarious that's actually transgressive (without dropping into pointless edginess too often) and surprising compared to the countless boring, anodyne LA-based improviser podcasts. Nick is a comedic genius, although the most I've laughed recently was when Stav asked innocently whether a royal's whipping boy would get any perks in return for being beaten, such as the prince's "run-off pussy".

It's a slapshod affair but I love it.

When I was getting up to the May 2017 episodes I did hope that they'd talk about it a bit. As soon as Adam mentioned it I realised there'd just be a sad awkward silence with Adam trying to explain why Twin Peaks is good to two people who don't care at all. Too close to home, I'm quite glad Nick shut him down.

Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast

They're not rich kids. Nick is the son of a single mother who worked various minimum wage jobs. He's a former alcoholic who was working as a truck driver and living in a Chinese family's spare room until the podcast allowed him to quit his job and move house about 18 months ago.

Stav did refer to himself as a "Cumdog Trillionaire" recently, I'll grant you.

I don't think you're far off with "opie and anthony / stern for people that grew up on /b/ ". But O&A (I don't know so much about Stern) in its heyday, when it had Bill Burr, Patrice ONeal, etc. could be a great show. The worst things about O&A were their right-wing political opinions and mistreatment of vulnerable people, neither of which are a feature of CumTown.

Nick recently said another pod called Tuesdays With Stories deserves all of his patreon money much more than him, and, unlike him, they wouldn't spend all of it fuelling their rampant coke habits.  Just throwing that out there.  Heard one episode and it seems good, though it's lacking in Cum Town's scatty, incompetent charm so far.
Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast
Post by: PlasticTom on January 04, 2018, 09:10:33 AM
Thanks for the heads up on Tuesdays With Stories. I'm 3 eps in and really enjoying it. It seems to focus more on the actual process of stand-up than Cum Town does these days. It definitely feels more like a peek behind the scenes. It doesn't make me feel naughty like I do when listening to Cum Town, but I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes, checking out some of the guests, etc..

As a side-note, I've looked up bits of their stand-up and the Cum Town guys, and have found that I prefer them all in podcast mode even though they're all pretty good. In fact, podcast chatting has almost totally replaced stand-up for me which I used to listen to a lot of. Kind of a shame, but I like a spontaneous chat more than "bits".

Badly obsessed with this podcast (multiple re-listens of most episodes, premium included). It tickles something very specific in the psyche that only CM and PPFR have been able to get at thus far. Sometimes I feel like it's turning me mildly retarded, but I guess that mindstate makes it easier to find sources of healing laughter out in the world.
Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast
Post by: hedgehog90 on January 07, 2018, 11:25:52 PM
I haven't listened to this for a few months now. As much as I enjoy Nick (as others have said - a truly gifted comedian), I increasingly grew to loathe Stav and pity Adam to the point where it stopped being fun.
Is Stav still doing that hilarious bit where he farts into the mic?
Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast
Post by: Sin Agog on January 08, 2018, 12:14:14 AM
Stav ended a recent episode with a great line after they were riffing about gay versions of sitcoms: "Gay Seinfeld", "Gay Friends" etc. with "Regular Frasier".  Maybe a had to be there moment, but it was good.  Also his mangling of the phrase 'thousand yard stare' into 'thousand island stare'- an American salad dressing- and Nick's reaction was especially funny.

With a couple of exceptions, like the damp squib of an episode where they're all recording while watching The Bridge on the River Kwai (Stav's reaction when Alec Guinness tries to stop William Holden from blowing up the bridge was amusing at least), they've been better than ever in the last couple of months.  You should go back to them, including the Premiums.  I think they're at their best when they're happy, and they all mostly seem in pretty good spirits of late.  Perhaps partly due to having more money than they know what to do with thanks to the Patreon (well, Nick at least- he takes 50% of the cut).  They probably pull in more than Gas Digital or the Anthony Cumia studios do in total every month.

As to the necessity of Stav and Adam.  Well, Stav I probably have bugger all in common with.  He's a crude culturally ign'ant ADHD kid, but all successful comedy podcasts need a laugher.  And I do like his generally happy-go-lucky nature.  And Adam, when he's not stepping on Nick's riffs or trying to gracelessly crowbar in not-very-interesting junk he just read on the internet, actually has some of the best lines.  They just all happen to be delivered in that vocal fry voice of his so it's hard to give them the appreciation they deserve.  I think the main point is they both loosen up Nick enough to let him launch into the best bits in a way no one else can.  The first episode where I really warmed up to the show was Autism Powers, and Nick's stumbling across so many great characters lately.  Their Molestrios riffs on a random PSN screen name Nick found, GeoIsGay, and the continuing saga of AfricanMan have killed me.  I get that some people see this as hateful or low-effort or what have you, but really it's a joyful good-time podcast.  And they're all left-wing and shit so you don't have to feel guilty after laughing.

Tuesdays With Stories really is fantastic. I've breezed through 20 in the last week. I initially thought it was a cosier, less offensive version of Cum Town, but they're actually just as casually racist, homophobic, etc... There's no real intent though, they seem like nice enough guys. I guess it just goes with the territory of being a working stand-up in New York? To be fair, they do have discussions about what is and isn't offensive and seem vaguely aware of stepping over the line.
Anyway, it's just fucking funny. The stories about the dying on stage are the best (and pretty frequent)

Some of their riffs are a lot of fun, I agree. But they sure have a tendency to emphasise the unpleasant imagery in their stories. Like the most recent episode, when talking about the black woman crying on the bus. I know the point they were making was that black kids are funny, but then they seem to revel in the pain of others, and then laugh about it.

I know the point they were making was that black kids are funny, but then they seem to revel in the pain of others, and then laugh about it.

There's levels of cuntishness where the sheer, pointless cruelty of the act somehow becomes funny in itself. I think that's what they're laughing at, as opposed to the poor lady and her troubles, which genuinely sounds like a heartbreaking thing to have witnessed.

The cellphone kiosk story (https://youtu.be/dEIcR9Hz_j4) works on the same principle. If you don't laugh, you'll cry, and crying is fuckin' gay dude.

e: the jam festival bit from The Day Today hits similar notes also.

I checked out his instagram after that ep, and for someone who looks like he's fashioned himself on Sean Penn's character in Carlito's Way, it is extra-hilarious looking at how much effort he puts into every photo.

BUT if anyone's still on-the-fence about how dark their humour can get, maybe put the latest episode on the shelf for awhile.  That train/dead dad stuff is brutal.

This week's had me howling with the sheer level of depravity involved. My (queer, feminist) girlfriend gave this a listen after asking me what I was chuckling away each week with a pained look on my face, and I was horrified to find out she'd done so. Luckily, she thought it was funny too, but then she also has a taste in high/low level smut.

Just to chime in with previous discussions; I wouldn't reccomend this to most people, but given the somber, self-serious tone of most other podcasts I listen to, and the cultural climate in general, I do just find it a bit of a release. As has previously been highlighted, Mullen is just an incredible improviser, which saves it for me, even in the bad episodes that can descend into schoolyard homophobia, albeit ironic. The good riffs are above anything else in this field of comedy. Also, it's obvious that they're all pretty to very decent guys, Mullen included. I'd actually like to hear Stav talking more about his experiences dealing with internalised misogyny in therapy, but of course, I just take the podcast as the study in being gay with your Dad that it is.

Great post!  Summed it all up perfectly.

Ian's back for the premium ep (https://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/patreon-posts/bFox8WEtoIwZRan7_rzjrZuldVkV1raCOlgNv-ygQeHvtuJ6uBB-vOcrVwZr2-zy.mp3), and it's somehow even funnier than the last one.  I bet Adam is getting his thorax all twisted up with anxiety in South Africa right now.  I'd definitely be down to have Ian on the fourth mic, but they can barely manage to successfully mic three people at once, let alone four.

I still think about when Nick wanted to be a knife guy and warned Stav and Adam to "watch out, I'm a dancing cactus and you might get pricked." It's been months.

I think about this circa once a day. A guy casually waving a knife around and being a dancing cactus hits me like almost nothing else.

Many thanks for alerting me of this. I've listened to every free episode in less than a month, the fastest I've ever gone through a podcast I reckon. It's vulgar and idiotic but (or maybe therefore) has an uncanny knack of making me crack up at the most throwaway and flippant remarks. Nick is undoubtedly the key talent but I feel the other two provide a necessary contrast as any good co-hosts should.

Does anyone have any favorites of the premium episodes? I'll probably listen to all of those too at some stage but it'd be nice to have some particularly good ones to start off with.

I think pretty much every episode has at least one hilarious bit. I'd second bully town. I wish I didn't have such a shite memory. Sometimes I feel like I should have a little document and write down just brief thoughts and what memorable bits were in there. I do think I have a stronger memory of earlier episodes, probably because they felt newer to me. Still have vivid imagery conjured up from Nick's anecdotes in my mind.

I felt like that listening to Comedy Bang Bang, and well most American podcasts for the first time.  It was like I was letting a bunch of croaky valley girls who say 'like' every other word invade my earholes. I think most comedy podcasts' success is predicated on replicating that joking around with close friends feeling, where the majority of jokes only take off because you know their personalities so well.  It's up to you whether you want to push through to that point.  I never really did with Bang Bang, but I'm glad I did here.

As to good Premiums, Stav and Adam's recent interview with the sleepy-voiced Mexican Bryan Singer victim on the ep Tango Down really got me.

I listened to this and it reminded me of how Norm Macdonald felt about the Brandon Teena murder: "I believe everyone involved in this story should die."

Yes but that is fictional cuntishness exaggerated for comic effect, parodying Paxman's interviewing style. This was an apparently real story about some young cunt scamming immigrants and then witnessing casual cruelty to some woman and her disabled son. And then all his friends did their annoying laugh.

The crucial part, for me, was Nick getting snapped out of his sad & empathetic reverie by the stupidest, most callous analysis of that whole situation possible, and being reduced to hysterical laughter from the shock of it. It's a funny way for the mind to protect itself.
For reasons of age/location/upbringing, a lot of the cultural references go over my head.

I'd say it doesnt work as clips at all.  Like, this bit is probably the most I've laughed but a lot of is down to where it comes in a incredibly languid episode https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpLHQZuB9-Q

My favourite bits are the parts where Mullen is coming across as very on the spectrum tbh, either an extended pissed off explanation of something or just going on about how he's spent hours on youtube watching videos about the different kinds of sounding horns you can buy.
Very hard to see Stav as anything other than the guy that latches onto a bully to be his wingman.


Find it very hard to imagine Mullen doing standup though, he seems wayyyyy too much of a nerd about the whole performance aspect that doesnt match up with his humour at all.

I relish every opportunity I get to say "you just don't get it" and watch those people get even more annoyed that I made such a smug and ambiguous comment, but it's the truth. Most people seriously don't get it, and they don't deserve a proper, decent explanation as to why they should get it. Hey if you don't like Cum Town, fuck you, I don't care

Yeah, it's funny as hell. Not for all occasions but undoubtedly scratches an itch nothing else really does. Also - it's desperately obvious they're all sweethearts beneath the black humour. They're just trying to make each other laugh - and it warms my heart that the podcast they all started from minimum wage misery because they were so depressed has changed their lives.

Re: Stav's laugh. You really miss it when he's not there. He's a hype man - and when Mullen doesn't have him to play to, he can just become monotone and flat. Loved Mullen (ages back) defending Stav's ignorance: 'He's just a fat, happy guy who lives in the moment.'

It's in a nice place atm - agree they're all sounding happier in their lives, and I'm glad to see/hear Mullen's doing more spots. Not all of his humour can translate to the stage, but it would be a huge waste for him to just spend the next ten years on Playstation.

I love how Stav was 100% aware that nothing he or Adam could say could possibly improve the episode in any way while Nick was in god mode. That New York Times bit.  Married to Children.  The American Psycho riff.  People of Coloring Books... It's all too much.  It needs to be made mandatory that Nick gets high on the day of the podcast recording.  With regular brains you become the most tiresome bore on weed, but with Nick's he just comes out with these bits without even trying.

After hearing the boys partially make fun of and partially salute black comics in the "now how many of y'all like sex" Def Comedy Jam vein, I decided to check some out. Holy fuck is it funny. Disregarding the all-time greats (Chappelle, Murphy etc), I never knew someone like Bernie Mac was so fucking funny. And all of them are insanely offensive. It really hits home how lackluster stand up is now, with a seemingly endless supply of upper middle class white women and Indian guys with Netflix specials who are just really unfunny. White guys too for that matter. It's like Nick said, stand up is about getting the audience nodding and applauding your correct takes, and not about being funny.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JkPx0gk6LE

The charisma. The swagger. Just completely owning the stage. It's better than any stand up I've seen on Netflix. Also, without fail, there's a sour faced white woman in the front row not laughing at all, which just makes it better.

Edit: Also, the "Screeching Halt" bit in the latest episode was phenomenal.

I am way behind on these after a 4 month listening hiatus due to not having to walk 40 mins to work. Nice to have a good backlog to listen to but am a bit narked I can't relate to the latest bits on this thread.

I find with this that I can tune out all the "you're gay" back and forths, having it playing the background as I stride to work like a god, and then suddenly snap back in to something that's really funny. I laughed loudly in the street the other day(s) at the bits on different eps about a mobile phone "Hood" tariff where you're not charged for repeating yourself (I find myself wandering around amusing myself saying "Oh my god. I wanna put hands on you. I liderally want to put hands on chu." and "He is not yo mans. He is not yo mans. But he is not yo mans" and "Are you gonna let me finish? Are you gonna let me finish? Are you gonna let me finish?") and also the bit about the special Olympics / Olympics being the wrong way round and how the Chinese could dominate because "there's no test we can do".

Also - I envy Nick's ability to make up language - Spanglish, Cantonese, the Japanese Spiderman theme.

Moving along a bit further in, I'm liking Stav a lot more. He just gave off the vibe of a kind of internet kid with no interests who just somehow winds up being a total cunt but he's clearly not.
Nick deliberately texting other people than Stav/Adam about Call Me By Your Name because he was embarrassed by how much he liked it was pretty funny.

Just jumped months ahead to listen to the Batman one as I trudged round the streets. I liked the interaction between Stav and Nick - seemed a lot more relaxed and Stav seemed less prone to just lapsing into the "you're gay" stuff to try and spark something.

Great to hear Nick laughing too and enjoying it.

I liked the bit about Adam being banned from Israel.

Was outraged to hear Brendan Burns being thought of as British. We don't want him (and I speak for everyone). I can just imagine him keep saying his "muzzo beard" thing and then mistaking silence as misplaced outrage as opposed to indifference or boredom.

Yeah the last one was funny as fuck. Nick clearly in manic/coke mode, although I do think the Adam baiting is starting to get a bit tired. Constantly rinsing his girlfriend seems a touch overboard for example. Although she’s probably in on it and he makes thousands of dollars a month off it so he can’t moan too much I guess.

The main evolution is how they easily have the funniest ad breaks since Norm Macdonald Live.  It's bizarre and cool that Mack Weldon and that betting site are fine with the boys muddying their products' names with their dirtiest material.  Wonder how long that can last... Though they must be aware that such half-baked, conversational ads will render the skip ahead fifteen seconds button useless for their fans, as opposed to some bland, recorded copy.

The “put ‘em on your bitch” bit from a couple of episodes ago was so fucking stupid.

I can’t understand why I like this so much, usually the sort of humour the boys peddle just isn’t my bag at all but when it’s these three constantly calling each other gay and blasting N’s it just makes me giggle at how fucking purile it is. It’s also made me and a work colleague get into a dangerous game of constantly changing the lyrics to songs into references to being gay with your dad. I can’t explain it, with any other comics I just don’t think I could enjoy it but there’s something so endearing about the chemistry between them.

It's because it's the only things scratching the itch of "ostensibly nice guys saying anything they find funny" in a world where comedy has turned to political activism.

Adam Jr is the funnies thing I've heard in ages. I don't care how racist it is, how offended MotherJones magazine writers are, how Nick Mullen is CANCELLED for saying it, it's just insanely funny. I think Adam puts up with it because he knows he's 100% dispensable in a room with Nick.

Yeah, well, there's a reason for that.

Quote from: Stewart Lee in The Guardian the other week
This isn’t the time for ambiguity, or irony, or publicity-seeking controversy. Those days are gone, and I miss them, as I am part of a generation that profiteered from the assumption that political correctness was a done deal, and now we could have fun jumping in and out of its boundaries, like street kids round a spurting water main. But the Nazi-saluting pug bloke has just joined Ukip so his racist dog doesn’t seem remotely funny any more.

If Breitbart or Spiked can roll out your comments approvingly online you have fucked up. Nowadays, your true intentions have to be written through every inch of your content, like the word Blackpool through a stick of rock, so at any point the useful idiots of the hipster “alt-right” and their fellow travellers in the opinion industry chose to snap it, it still can’t be repurposed.

How many people do you think that regularly listen to this podcast of "ostensibly nice guys saying anything they find funny" are actually "ostensibly nice guys" themselves, and not just alt-right dickheads gleefully enjoying it for the wrong reasons? Not all of them are going to be like that, sure, but I'd wager a fair amount. As S. Lee pointed out there, those days are gone - at least maybe for now.

But just in the last few episodes Nick's alluded to being deflated and depressed, having out of control manic episodes, being on the spectrum, and being unable to extract joy from relationships; Adam's mum's got cancer, and Stav, jolly though he may appear, could keep an abnormal behavioural psychologist entertained for months,  4channers pribably have all of those things, but their inability to face them is what keeps them /mu'ing and angry all the time.  I didn't get the internet 'til way late in life, and find extremely online people lacking in empathy and just plain unnerving, but Nick at least strikes a different chord to those people to me.  Talking of O&A, I remember when he was on Cumia's show and offended a porn star whose brother had autism, Nick immediately switched off the hurr de durr mode and was surprisingly gentle with her.  Can't take people's fronts seriously.  Most of those types are mush underneath in my experience,

I think that's Ant you're talking about.  Opie is more of a "the blacks should write me funny lines to say on mic and let me take the credit" kind of guy.

Speaking of, Nick's recent half-hearted battle with the Opie & Anthony sub-reddit was kind of amusing.  Though it was quoting the last episode, all about the Small Penis, Big Problems (https://www.reddit.com/r/smallpenisproblems/) reddit page, that actually got me to make my dad laugh for the first time in months.  I'm almost thinking about introducing him to the pod as he's an old-school Sadowitz fan, but I'm not sure I can be asked explaining to him what a podcast is first.

Still 100% onboard with this.

I don't see where the at-right thing comes from? Because they joke about it? They are all very obviously left wing dudes who will say anything to make each other laugh. Not sure I've mentioned this in-thread before but Mullen used to post on the Doug Stanhope forums when he was a kid (He was v funny and I used to google his name every so often for years after the site got unplugged, because I knew he'd do something).

What's undeniable is how wired he is for comedy. I've had hot streaks, particularly with good friends where the chemistry's established, but the stuff he can pull out of thin air on a daily basis is glorious - and in world where I've become less and less interested in comedy, Cum Town makes me laugh every day, occasionally to dangerous levels.
Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast
Post by: Z on July 18, 2018, 10:51:21 PM
I'd say Mullen has, on some level, a very high empathy streak tbh. Pretty much all the time when he's going on about some ludicrously grim person he found on youtube or w/e, a good deal of focus will be on what it must be like to be that person; there seems to be a sincere attempt to understand them.
He's a total misanthrope though.


These days I'm stunned I thought Stav was a low key douche for ages. I think it's the general all-male regressive camaraderie that the show works off is just ground that (it feels like) the alt right took over but I think Cum Town is different in that very very little of it is driven by hatred and bitterness towards the things they're laughing about.

Yes, it is actually fascinating how nonchalantly he'll just riff something out that's insanely funny on a consistent basis. I'd also agree with him being a cynical misanthrope with finely tuned social antennas. I think he's read as alt-right by people who mistake his cynicism when it comes to bullshit surrounding the online left, and I say that because I'm aware I give off the same vibe. There are a lot of shameless opportunists latching on to the resurgence of leftist politics online, and ruthlessly exposing them can come across as alt-right. The thing is, though, that he does the exact same thing to the alt-right opportunists, and he embraces leftist economic policies every time he speaks candidly about politics. Stav and Adam does to. All of them voted for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently, for instance. Or at least Stav did.

I ditched Cum Town at some point last year as it started getting on my nerves a bit but all the talk on this thread persuaded me to pick up where I left off. I'm happy to say I was nearly incapacitated with laughter today at an ostensibly feeble but somehow hilarious Nick Mullen riff with him just singing the theme from the Pokemon cartoon in a ridiculous falsetto with improvised lyrics about the Pokemon cartoon being all about fucking your own dad. "Pokemon! It's a show about fucking your dad! I know you think it's about animals but the truth is there's a bunch of subliminal messages that tell you to fuck your daaaaaaad! Except the theme song, the theme song is pretty explicit. You are supposed to fuck your dad after you watch the shooowwwww! Fuck your dad!" The wording "you are supposed to" had me helpless.

So I suppose I'm back in then, with about 40 episodes of this to listen to. I dunno if that much misanthropy might break my brain, it's a bit more of an undertaking than 40 episodes of, say, Athletico Mince. And also I dunno if like me you sometimes 'ghost hear' your text message/WhatsApp phone noise when you're half asleep because you're so used to it. I reckon listening to nothing but 40 episodes of Cum Town in a short space of time I'll start 'ghost hearing' Stav's cackle.

Is Adam the modern day Syd Little? Relentlessly bullied, adds virtually nothing.

They seem to noticeably oscillate now with the Adam baiting so any episode that’s just them slagging him off tends to follow with an episode where they’re nice to him and actually treat him like a friend. I don’t think he cares that much. The only time it ever seemed to get a bit nasty was a while ago when Adam told some joke which no one really laughed at and Nick went “yeah you’ve been trying to get that bit going for a while now” and sort of casually dismissed his stand up which seemed a bit harsh and it seemed to genuinely hurt Adam a bit.

Ironically Adam is easily the most accomplished stand-up out of the three, all stand up I’ve seen from Nick has on the whole been a bit shit.

Yeah, anyone who thinks Nick is 'alt-right' or a troll, etc. would surely be disproven by the recent episode. I actually like it when they get a little more introspective, it makes it extra funny when they inevitably say something insincerely horrendous minutes later, but also because it's interesting. But I understand Nick's reluctance to do so, although yes, I think the sheer weight of the world is weighing down on him a bit. If he happens to read this on a narcissistic, coke-fuelled binge, I just wanna say: Hey Nick, you're alright mate.

The second half of the last Patreon episode did counter a few of the criticisms here: he says his latest bout of depression is largely due to the fans mustering up a posse to go after almost anyone the pod happens to mention.  Must be a weird one for Nick as, however puerile the pod might appear, he regularly donates to the ACLU and it's as much about trying to salvage free speech, in a totally non-partisan way, as sucking your dad's dick.  But then the flipside of that are the antagonistic simpletons who glom onto the pod without seeing any of the nuance whatsoever and use it as an opportunity to fuck with random internetters' lives.  So Nick's put in the position of making hundreds of thousands from a pod that's genuinely hurting some people.  Unlike someone like Stav, who might appear more classically liberal on the surface, he's clearly not got the kind of personality that can just shrug that shit off, so he just ends up plunged in a horrific funk instead.  I mean, he sounded like someone podcasting from a hospital bed in the last episode.  I know it's creepy being that invested in a podcast(er), but this is why I get so pissed off when people just shrug him off as a 4channer.  Even Mr. Rogers probably inadvertently had a run-on effect that somehow ruined at least one person's life, but he went to sleep soundly at night, but the Cumia-clone 4channer racist homophobe is beating himself up for weeks on end.

I couldn't be friends with anyone who had that sneering laugh so I don't want to subject myself to it. The name alone previously put me off but someone posted a clip in another thread which I thought was 'lively' and I thought I'd give an episode a go. Snark snark snark snark snark. Like listening to some depressed twenty five year old acting up and swearing a little too loud in public because they think strangers will be impressed or hopefully intimidated. I'm sure there's some very funny material when the stars occasionally align but it's all too mean-spirited and grubby for me, like minesweeping out of an ashtray.

That sounds a lot like the way Bill Burr fans get so weird about him having even slightly different opinions to them (especially regarding women). Or complaining about him being married to someone who disagrees with him politically instead of being the theoretically pure black-pilled incel they want him to be.

I don't really get why Mullen hasn't mentioned schizophrenia as a possibility that I can recall. The obsessive tendencies totally play into that, the "autism" traits kinda do, the more delusional ones absolutely do, and he spent his formative years taking fucking tons of weed iirc.


What's up with Stav and his tooth? That guy seems absurdly depressed these days and the fact that he can afford a house but can't be arsed sorting out his tooth sounds kinda concerning in itself.

For something that's so transparently ridiculous, you could write a thesis on this podcast even if you hate it. There's the political angle, the ironic racism, the free speech reaction, the bullying, the relationships between them, the addition of a ton of cash, the alt-right fan boys and now the mental illness journey. It was so strange hearing Mullen going from that manic episode on the peeds to the recent electric-cord chewing breakdown. There's a lot there.
Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast
Post by: Schnapple on August 23, 2018, 11:36:49 AM
Absolutely, I genuinely find the dynamics on this podcast to be pretty intricate and fascinating. Post-breakdown, Nick really does seem to be distancing himself from the arsehole fan community and making a point of more explicitly kicking against the pricks. Of course, there's still room to be completely, inventively disgusting.

The live show recording was interesting in so much as it really showcased how Stav and even Adam are more talented performers, and definitely the audience surrogate, whereas Nick (who I hugely relate to) was very much just a contributor in this instance.

I think I posted a link somewhere in the thread of pods Nick has guested on.  Most of them suffer from older, insecure comics talking over him*, but there are still some good riffs.

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.



*Kurt Metzger is the worst at this.  You can see him getting demonstrably more squirrelly whenever people are laughing too much at Nick's riffs.  He even yells at him to shut up a few times so he can go on some trite rant about wimmin or whatever.  Jim Norton's the same.  Whereas Bobby Kelly really warmed up to Nick, despite taking exception to his cold, dead shark eyes at first.

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.
Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Oh my god. The newest ep is... something else. Top 3 of the whole run for me.
Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast
Post by: Sin Agog on March 09, 2019, 12:53:46 PM
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 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.

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/

Nick says in the comments it was a genuine oversight, and considering his almost dogmatic devotion to the truth and whatnot, I think that's probably what happened.

Didn't the Daily Mail have a front page story recently about how Diabetes can be reversed if you eat nothing but soup for several years?  Stav knows what he's doing.

I mean, having your foot fall apart literally under its own weight should be a warning sign that something has to be done. Instead he’s just used it as an excuse to not move ever while eating like 5k calories a day. Add gas station dick pills, coke and adderall on top of that, and it doesn’t look good for his heart. Fat fuck.

Nick must have edited the argument out pretty quickly because I got the ep from iTunes pretty quickly after it was uploaded and it cuts off after about a minute. That reddit link is the first time I’ve heard it in full. I can understand why Stav is upset but I mean, he will literally die within the next decade if he doesn’t get his shit together. You can’t constantly take drugs and eat whole pork shoulders in one sitting everyday and escape completely unscathed. Might place an in game wager on who’s gonna be the first to die on beatmeoffguys.com

It lives and dies on what kind of mental state Nick is in I think. He seems to be in a good place at the moment so the last couple of months have had some amazing episodes. Plus Adam has actually started being funny again which helps. I liked his story about getting a condom blowjob in that brothel in Tel Aviv. “The banality of evil.”

He’s one hundred percent saying it, and the mid-word reversal only makes it more incriminating. It’s way more than ‘thousand I...’ , it’s at least ‘thousand isl...’

It makes me so happy, and the slow dawning realisation of what’s just happened alongside their rounding on him and his subsequent ‘vehement’ denials are beyond wonderful. Very glad I just listened to it again.

If you could do anything you would have done it by now instead of being locked in this prison where you're mocked day in and day out."

haven’t been a fan of Amber for a long time, but as someone mentioned previously she’s so rarely on CTH it doesn’t diminish my enjoyment much. if it’s a solo interview episode with her i’ll just skip it. from what i can tell that’s where a lot of her problematic statements come from, i rarely hear anything when she’s in the group.

on a semi related note, the new solo premium episode with Matt on the history of the two parties and their relationship with the constitution is very good. more Matt content please.

Amber often seems more enamoured with the idea of being cool than being compassionate, and a lot of her bad takes stem from that impulse as far as I can see. Still don't understand why everyone on twitter has a meltdown about her every other week. Couldn't imagine spending my life getting attached to podcasters as if they were my friends and then continually getting mad when they fuck up. Seems generally unhealthy

Yeah, they have, and seemingly are both very broken up about it. They only got engaged last year and were in Canada on the tour last month, so aside from Adam being gay and all, I can't help but wonder why? Not that I care or am even at all interested in the lives of these idiots!!!

Dasha seems to have turned towards a new-age liberal Catholicism movement, might've had something to do with it. Nick's gone manic again investigating the Epstein stuff and Stav's still inflating like a balloon. Not a good time for the lads. The Jimmy Buffet stuff on the new ep is great though.

Great episode this week, nearly in tears at Stav's suggestion that Nick hires a black comedian to perform his (brilliant) Def Comedy Jam parody routines, "like an ironically racist Roman emperor." Damn it, it's been said many times on here before, but when Nick is on form, he is astoundingly funny.

At times genuinely terrifying. Everything combines; weird brain, weird upbringing, weird height, weird addictions, weird friends.

Stav screaming with laughter is petrol on the fire, too. He's like a one man audience that Nick doesn't have to feel self-conscious about being in front of.

Also touched (and sad) about the Adam situation. A posted and then deleted rumour on the subreddit was that Dasha was using heroin 'again'. There was also a throw away comment on the pod recently about her spending a large amount of Adam's money, although of course that could have been a joke.

I remember having the same feeling myself.  In fact, I always feel like that at first whenever I'm party to more than two young Americans talking together.  Waiting until you've worked out whose voice is whose is the secret to enjoying any pod.  It really does settle down, though.  If you've gotta listen from the beginning, I think that Austin Powers ep- like, episode 5 or 6?- was where the silliness really clicked.  Maybe because it was all one ridiculous bit rather than just swapping stories about comedians I didn't know about.  Seem to recall Black Magic Schoolbus, Bully Town and Tango Down being good early ones.  Nick Mullen's bitstincts can sometimes feel otherwordly.

Favourite parody song for me is probably still

“I believe my dick’s small
I believe my dick’s way to fuckin’ small
My penis doesn’t even reach my balls
And my balls are also small”

Or when they do Vertigo by U2 but just change it to “Hello - I’m gay.”

Clever? No.
Funny? Probably not.
Does it make me laugh my fucking tits off? Absolutely.

As for best ep, Tai bo is the one that got me hooked. Nick is on fire throughout, the downs jones character being a particular highlight.

“Downs Jones is down five points tonight on Mario party - his favourite game...”

Fucking hell when he’s manic he’s quick as fuck.

Not heard it yet, but Imma guess it's Nick being eerily nice to Adam again.  The Stav-less episodes feel like a floaty reboot of an old show where the character dynamics are all off. Whereas the Adam-less ones are two perennially imbalanced individuals retreating into hilarious infantilism for an hour or so before ending the pod saying they wanna kill themselves.  It's almost like Nick becomes a heightened version of whichever Cum Boy is in the room with him.

I like the occasional episode with just Nick and Adam, they're breezy nothing episodes but its a good reminder that Nick doesn't sincerely hate Adam if nothing else.

No episode with this in it is entirely lost. I fully cackled. I agree that the Stav-less episodes demonstrate why he’s so important to the dynamic. His one man crowd screaming laughter eggs Nick on to ludicrous heights, but I found this Adam and Nick edition a nice listen too.

For such a completely stupid and thoughtless podcast, it is the definition of chemistry. Take out an element and it truly doesn’t work in the way it’s intended to. Leave everything as it is, and it seems that it can go on forever with very little thought involved.

All that said, I do fully believe that Nick spends every waking moment mentally riffing and contemplating potential bits. Although it’s hilarious to imagine his mind at work in menial minimum wage jobs, I love that he somehow found the perfect outlet (but is still miserable).

TBH - within the parameters of Cum Town they all look terrific. Man, I love them all so stupidly much. Complete idiots who have fallen ass-backwards into the exact formula which works for them, and it's wonderful.

Mainly, I am absolutely stunned to see them:

1. Outside in sunlight and...
2. Actually following through with anything they promised on the patreon.

I assumed the pumpkin patch would go the same way as the web series and various other things even slightly more complicated than podcasting.

Also as a recent recommendation: Time to Die. Whole show, obv, but 20 mins in Stav casually mentions, as ever, the exact measurements of another man's penis and is challenged on it. The boys delve into his research process and it's just the kind of funny that can only come from deep understanding between friends and, although every word is the stupidest I've ever heard, it's perfect.

You better unbuckle my pants, and fuck me in my ass.”

There’s no point defending this podcast to anyone that hates it because you can’t. On paper it is everything it’s detractors claim it is. Yet it makes me laugh probably more than anything else does these days.

It's indefensible - and that speaks to its credit. Its only aim is to make me cackle. And although there are natural fallow periods (ones which often illustrate the frailties of the men involved) the hit rate is insane. Nick Mullen is a terrifying bit man. Over this amount of hours, the variety of takes, impressions, references and jokes is medically insane.

These moments are always a rare treat. His absolute loathing for Steven Seagal showing through ‘Then he just fucks her. THAT’S his definition of a Good Man’, the constant Whalberg digs, the episode with Bam’s conman road manager who was regularly acquiring coke for a drug addict ‘and at no point does anything in you say ‘this is wrong’?’ Adam’s non-intervention in the sexual assault of a woman on the street.

Nick seemed a bit overwhelmed by the idea of being serious on that recent Chapo Joker Special, at least at first (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjUmW4vsUoU).  It resulted in his hilarious little non sequitur about The Love Guru. Then when he got comfortable he kinda out-Chapo'd all the Chapos.  It's what makes Cum Town so much more loveable than all that Luis Gomez/Anthony Cumia/Sam Harris 'member when men were allowed to be funny crowd.

He's the funniest person I've ever heard, not even hyperbole, I can say it with full confidence. Constantly finding myself thinking "how the fuck does his mind do this?" yet I feel like I understand him like no other comedian. Even just a stupid bit like Elvis saying "suck me very dick" it's like, yes, I completely get it in the most inarticulable way
I'm alway finding myself thinking back to things like his Joker impression from a year or two ago, starts off with small dick Joker and comes out with amazing phrases like "I CUT MY DICK DOWN - NOT OFF, JUST DOWN"

'Suck me very dick' is emblematic of the whole show. Literally one of the stupidest things I'ver ever heard from a comedian, particularly a brilliant one. Also one of the funniest.

From memory, Adam is in disbelief at the line, he's us, he's asking how it can possibly be permissible as funny - and Nick bats him down.

It just is.

It just is.

The line itself is one thing, it's asking an Elvis impersonator turned failed comedy club owner to say it as Elvis and him refusing because its "disrespectful to the King" that puts it over the top. Sublime.

Nick has been low energy in the last few then coming in with literally insane flights of fancy that other comedians might forge careers out of. I enjoyed the recent one where they had a guest because it felt like they were really really trying to be on best behaviour/act like a real podcast would. And look, completely failing.

Stav in a dick measuring contest with his toddler brothers killed me.

Loving this new soundboard.

Threw on yesterday's ep to find out if I could still laugh, and Nick tactically bleeping Adam at the perfect moment to make him sound all Tom Metzger proved that I can.  It's basic bitch childishness, but so's the best of Cum Town.

I really wasn't expecting to enjoy this at all, on paper it sounds absolutely awful but I've been listening to it pretty much constantly throughout the day at work and it's caused me to laugh out loud on multiple occasions which is a relatively rare occurrence for me. Adam definitely seems the most well adjusted by quite a long way, you know, aside from being a weird bug who eats dust.

Nick's soundboard glee has been so infectious - but how completely shit they are at using it, and what a terrible product this podcast continues to be only makes it more funny.

Him becoming a 'sniper' with the Bleep was brilliant. The recently recurring bit about how much they want the show to end, how much they hate it and are embarrassed by the fans is likewise very funny.

Essentially every single thing about this podcast is wrong. Somehow it really helps at shit times, though.

Edit to add: from, I think, the first soundboard episode, after Nick's wilfully evil take that no woman could ever direct as well as Scorsese.

'How would she make DeNiro look thirty years younger? By sucking his dick?'

Most people probably think it's just Tidbit & The Screeching Halt up to his old tricks, but I like how Adam (and sometimes Nick) occasionally turn Cum Town into a film podcast on the down-low.  The Marnie chat a couple of weeks ago and The Naked Kiss conversation in this one were a nice breather in between the manic pixie dream bits like Michael Balls-Penis.

The 808 beats forced me to run out of a library because I was laughing so much but also terrified my earphones might malfunction and my phone would somehow blast out the (indefensible) audio on loudspeaker.

Nick imagining himself trying to do stand up as an old man to lapsed fans of the show who are just sad to see him was wonderfully bleak, too.

Just out of interest is there a thing remotely comparable to this podcast that’s British? As far as I’m aware the whole “dirtbag left” thing seems to be a very specific comedic niche that I don’t think translates very well across the pond. I’m just talking rubbish on my phone here and I’m slightly drunk  so will probably try and write something more nuanced in due course but it always makes me smile to myself when I get the bus home, say, after seeing something cerebral and witty at the Northumbria Institute and then I put Cum Town on and listen to Nick Mullen sing a sad song about Barney the Dinosaur being racist to his Chinese dinosaur cleaner and someone else is dropping beeps left right and centre so it sounds like constant N Bombs are being dropped and I’m just sat at the back of the bus laughing so much I think I might actually explode.

Yeah, I think one of the factors in the show's success is that the sheer size of America makes it economically viable to go unfiltered (in the certain assumption of cancellation*) and gamble that there are just enough weirdoes to make it pay. It's interesting that these shows are all weirdly linked to the ascendency of Trump (was the first Cum Town ep immediately before or after the election?) - perhaps a tacit rejection of certain elements of political correctness and identity politics on the left?

Although I'm certain many here wouldn't sign up to that, maybe better to say that the tone of cultural debate has made it wonderful to hear the most outrageous things said fearlessly, and that there's no way one could really be that fearless here?

*Interesting to see what happened to 'friend of the show' Shane Gillis when he attempted to leave the bubble of dirtbag left podcasts, and how much support his firing seemed to have even on the threads I looked in here.

Post by: Schnapple on December 27, 2019, 04:46:12 PM
It's interesting, I don't really like consciously 'edgy' or mean-spirited stuff, but I never find Cum Town too trying in that regard. I think the show would be insufferable if it had any element of "Can you believe we're saying this?", but instead, it's as glib about that idea as anything, as well as those who lazily trade on offence. I think the politics of the show and the lads (the fellas) are perfectly fine, Nick has just chosen to die on a particular hill when it comes to his freedom to do bad accents, but most of the humour derives from him being an absurdist, rather than a provocateur. Nick is also one of the few, true 'equal opportunity offenders' I can think of, which means you have to allow for certain material. For example, I find their casual use of the word "bitch" unpleasant every time, but I do not find any of the endless stuff about Adam being gay offensive. His perverted Indian man character makes me slightly upset, but his sleepy, frightened Mexican or shithead Italian dude always has me in hysterics. There's no rhyme or reason to it. Whatever makes this podcast work, it really does make me laugh like nothing else when it's cooking on gas.

My rule with podcasts I sense something special with is hang around until I can tell which similar sounding host is who.  At that point I usually know whether I'm hooked or not.  The pod clicked with me exactly in the middle of Autism Powers, for the record.  Up until then I was torn between placing them as frat bros or disenchanted 40-something suburban N.Y. has-been comedians.  Maybe throw in one of the dead serious episodes from around Cum Town's Suicide Epoch if things all feel too crude and bro'ey at first (which they seem to for pretty much everyone on here who's made a post about wanting to get into them).

Loved all the Charlie Rose stuff in the recent ep.

I started off around episode thirty. I didn't like this show at first, but I persisted based on the odd good bit from Nick and the fact it was generally sort-of refreshing in it's filth. Then I just couldn't stop listening to it. The aforementioned suicide season was really compelling, although they'd never admit to it. A genuine mix of refreshingly earnest discussion amid that episode in which Nick completely freestyles an entire episode of an imaginary crime documentary about the wrestler Chris Benoit. The Stavbot episode is also fucking hilarious, that was one of the first ones that had me on the floor.

I’m slowly making my way through, at about episode 50 of the regulars and listening chronologically to the premiums too so it’s going to take me a fair while to catch up.

Have you ever held a big stick in your hand before? A little twitch of your hand becomes a grandiose sweep by the time it reaches the end of the stick.  Nick's massive beard is actually making his heretofore barely perceptible facial expressions almost readable to me.

Nick said on Instagram that the virus will only make the show better - and damn if he isn't right. I guess the whole point is laughing at the absolute despair of life, and there's no one I'd rather do it with. God bless them all, or SALUTE as Stavros would say.

Just to add: Nick's flashcards to remember how to be racist in isolation.

I’m still working through 2017 episodes and in the last one i listened to, during a lull in energy Stav says they should try riffing on recent movies, suggesting Hidden Figures, then immediately realising where it’s going to go and shouting over Nick (who to be fair doesn’t even connect the dots until after).

I think Nick is very isolated and once again approaching the stage in which he sees secret messages written to him within menus at Chinese restaurants. I sometimes find it frustrating when he shuts down Adam or Stav for attempting to have a personal or intellectual conversation, but respect his commitment to the show just being funny and pointless above all. But when the shoe's on the other foot and he's waffling on about virus conspiracies and shutting down the other two for attempting levity, yeesh! In general, I'm not really feeling the long distance format. I know it's unavoidable, but even when just listening, some of the usual charm and chemistry is missing.

Ah well, shit's boring, who cares.

It does get trying at times on some later episodes. Like some people have remarked though, Stav plays the hype man role well. Especially given Adam doesn't laugh that much and Nick laughs about once every ten episodes.

I've not been a massive fan of the quarantine run so far, Nick especially seems a lot more reserved now he's on camera. It's also boring when he has these slightly manic episodes and just goes on about global warming for half an hour. That shit's boring man who cares.

 I started on the episode 'Tai Bo' which is one of my favourites. I knew nothing about them or the podcast previously and managed to get into it fairly quickly. The only issue I had was finding it hard to differentiate between who was speaking which seems bizarre now as they don't sound similar at all. Also, are you listening to the free episodes or the premium ones as well? The premium ones are all easily available online and I'd say most of the better ones are premium episodes because they seem to cut loose a little bit more on those ones.

Seeing as Zoom has fucked with the Boys' mojo, I decided to finally check out that podcast review of Cum Town from ages back, and if anything they downplayed how bad it is.  They start off with a jingle that seems to go on forever (shortly before slamming Cum Town for not doing some piss-poor Doo Wop over a Windows CD-ROM software beat), and then proceed to barely hide their resentment over how their hard work and rule-following goes unacknowledged. Plus there's their total inability to detect irony or understand absurdism.  Th-th-th-they keep breaking all the podcasting rules! Fun listen.  https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BbyqcAPcD34&t=10s

Yeah it’s horrible. I think it’s been common knowledge for a while his mother was very seriously ill. Somebody mentioned on the Reddit sub they’d messaged Nick asking how long Adam was gonna be absent from the pod for and he replied saying “I’m not sure, can everybody just give him some space.”
You do feel like you know the boys, such is the immediacy and intimacy of the show. The replies on Adam’s tweet about it have all been lovely so it’s nice to see such an outpouring of affection for him.

Some of the low energy/Nick depressed episodes can be a real slog but when it’s on form nothing makes me laugh harder. I was listening to episode 111 the other night (“The Forbidden Zone”) and fuck me, that’s just a straight hour of insanity. Might be my favourite ever episode. I’ve said it countless times but I don’t think anyone else could get away with the stuff they peddle without coming across as genuinely crass and offensive but there’s something so....charming and loveable about the boys. Nick says something on that episode about mixed marriages that is so utterly offensive but I was in agony laughing at the casual way he delivers it. If someone said that sort of thing in the pub you’d think they were an absolute cunt but Christ he just makes me laugh.

I don't necessarily always like them separately but as a unit (sometimes sans Adam) it IS wholesome. it IS good. I can't explain or justify that - I can imagine elements of it devastating certain people and ruining lives, but it makes me laugh like hell and feel like maybe I'm sane.

Is Stav is deliberately not getting his tooth replaced as a comedy bit at this stage or is it just a really visible manifestation of how much he neglects his health overall? like, he could absolutely afford that dental work at this stage assuming they're doing the 50:25:25 split they were doing at the start.

i've been listening to this and finding chunks of it very funny. there are maybe just enough moments in it that lead me to think (without certainty), that i can trust that the hosts aren't as bad people as their worst comment taken out of context would lead you to believe. I am not sure how they've stayed on patreon, given their t&c? feels like there's a harsh wake up coming there at some point.

Some of the fanbase seem awful (not here afaik, maybe that's just how reddit is). Reminded of Stewart Lee talking about the pub landlord's audience “laughing through gritted teeth at jokes they don’t understand like the dogs that they are”. This week's various bans on there made me curious about other stuff that's mentioned in the same breath though - are the other podcasts that get rightly or wrongly lumped with this (Chapo, Red Scare, TrueAnon) any good?

I listened to an old Chapo, they were talking about UBI, much as its an interesting idea I was kind of bored. I listened to a recent one with Stav on it talking about less weighty topics and enjoyed it a lot (given the space, and the freedom not to play the exact role he does in CT all the time, I think he's very good - his twitch show's another example) so I am not sure whether it's good w/o someone I like on it. I gave a TrashFuture a go too but it was a bit serious too (picking the one immediately after the last election might have been a poor choice).

I haven't listened to the others yet, would appreciate any advice that saves me listening to something that will educate me more than amuse me or that is sub-MDE shite that'll do neither.
Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast
Post by: Sin Agog on July 01, 2020, 12:11:13 AM
Red Scare, from my brief exposure, seems like the worst dead-eyed, vacuous hipster shit- like a podcast some of the characters in a Larry Clarke movie might make a few years down the line.  Chapo's probably only interesting if you're into socialist activism.  It certainly shouldn't be seen as reflective of any of the MGTOW crowd some of the establishment media have it muddled up with.  They've all got good hearts, but I haven't really bothered with it since Bernie dropped out.  Time for me to turn inward.  True Anon, never listened to, but Nick's conspiratorial side always was a bit of a comedic dead end, and usually comes during a manic onset, such as the one he had recently which forced him to miss a couple of Cum Town episodes for the first ever time.

As to the spin-offs/guest appearances, I think Stavvy's advice show is definitely the best of a bad lot.  He's maturing quite a bit.  He used to come across to me like some kind of epicurean frat satyr, but he seems like a really nice guy in reality.  Woke without being the least bit smarmy about it.  He and Nick had some good appearances on Robert Kelly's podcast (who I enjoyed calling Nick out on his resting shark face). Really liked Sydney Washington's appearance on yesterday's Stavvy Solves Your Problems (https://youtu.be/BuadZWtSLQg?t=3382).  i can't imagine the other two having as good a rapport with a gorgeous, funny woman like that.  Nick either retreats into himself or talks all over them.  Unfortunately, whenever Nick guests on something, it's usually some pod by a libertarian cementhead like Louis Gomez.  Maybe he finds people like that easier to chill with, but they're too close to the grotty Anthony Cumia crew (Cumia arguably helped launch Cum Town, by the way) for me to not feel a little icky about them cackling in my cochleas.  Adam I've only heard on a couple of Chapo episodes.  Dunno if he has the personality to be much of a solo draw, but he really stepped up on the last couple of Nickless eps.  If you've just started Cum Town around the time of the Coronavirus, well frankly this is not the best time to be a fan.  I'm glad they're all together again in, I think, Stav's house, though, and I'm sure it'll rise again.

Definitive survey of "dirtbag left" podcasts

Tier 1

Trillbilly Workers Party - Best of these podcasts. Has a ramshackle quality that is endearing, and the show benefits greatly from the hosts being in Kentucky rather than New York City. Highlights include any discussion of local politics. Actually has a decent fanbase?

Street Fight Radio - Probably the most genuinely left wing of these podcasts, insofar as the hosts are two Dads who make fun of shitty bosses every week rather than trying to muddle through discussing scientific materialism. Call-in shows can be hit or miss, but they actually seem to have a decent fanbase.

Tier 2

Chapo Trap House - Would be excellent if you have some type of sophisticated audio masking technology that can mute everyone other than Felix and Virgil. Does tend to have the highest comedic peaks of any of these shows, when everything aligns (and Amber is not on the show). Very large fanbase but the most vocal elements seem to be horrible in a way that is unfair to the hosts, who are not horrible.

Red Scare - The two co-hosts are almost unbelievably insufferable, but their frequently wrong contrarian takes do have the merit of being somewhat interesting to hear. Fanbase should be placed on FBI watch list.

Tier 5  - Hazardous Waste

TrueAnon, Cum Town, etc. - Terrible, awful, unfunny, do not listen.

Chapo was my starting point with leftism and it holds a place very dear to my heart. I haven't really listened since the Sanders campaign, which looking back at was a rather odd time. The show had always worked from a place of punching up and despite having some influence in the campaign, I feel the hosts got slightly too carried away during Sanders' ascendancy and it created this rather weird vibe within the show. I'm not sure what the future holds for Chapo, I suppose it could adopt the "Hellworld" angle and revel in the sheer mindlessness of a Biden/Trump campaign but I don't know how that would feel after the brief flirtation we had of genuine change presented by Bernie's campaign. I also get worried when podcasts are aware of their own mythology, and am worried Matt Christman, who is by far the most articulate of the crew, is buying into his own hype. Wearing his own merch, doing hour long instagram live's on an almost daily basis, I dunno.... It would also be a tremendous blow if Felix left, as has been long speculated for the last year or so.

It's nice to see Virgil back, however, and the definitive ranking of Chapo hosts is:

1. Matt.
2. Felix.
3. Virgil.
4. Will.
5. Producer Chris.
6. Amber.

Contrarian for the sake of it. I remember one time on a live show during the primaries everyone took turns to talk about how powerful this moment was and how much it meant to everyone. Almost all of them were sincere, except for Virgil but hey what do you expect, but Amber did this bizarre, five minute joke about Jews, a reoccuring trait of hers.
Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast
Post by: Old Nehamkin on July 01, 2020, 01:21:52 PM
I think that Amber is quite similar to Nick in that they both seem inordinately informed by online culture war grievances and are reflexively contemptuous of twitter liberals to the extent that they often end up bending over backwards to give lame "well actually" defences of various dipshit conservative takes for the sake of contrarian point-scoring. I've never listened to Red Scare, but based on her twitter feed Anna Khachiyan also seems to embody this mindset.

Having said that, I think Amber can be very good when she's talking about nuts-and-bolts labour issues, workplace organisation etc. and I do think she's perfectly correct in her wariness of identity politics being employed by liberals to stifle and obfuscate leftist goals. But her constant anti-woke posturing is pretty exhausting.

Incidentally my favourite Chapo host is Matt.

Don't think it's really that kind of podcast.  It's more like topical talk radio.  Might want to look into some of the interviews with peoples like Alan Moore, Larry Charles and Adam Curtis as they're usually pretty general.

Is Amber that bad? Everyone slags her off on Chapo but I’ve always thought she was quite good whenever she’s guested on Cum Town.

The thing about Chapo Trap House (in my opinion) is that it's primarily a comedy podcast. I'm not particularly interested in their political hot takes, and Amber brings very little comedy to the table while constantly derailing with said hot takes. (From what I've seen she does seem much better in writing.)

Where%u2019s a good entry point for Chapo? Never really bothered trying to get into it due to the sheer amount of episodes.

These are a couple of Chapo episodes that helped me get into the show:

Episode 58 - We Live in The Zone Now (https://youtu.be/oGbrJCS_kcE) - released just after Trump's election, a very cathartic and comprehensive takedown of the Clinton campaign and the modern Democratic party which earned the show a lot of attention at the time as a refreshing counterpoint to the feeble liberal excuse-making that dominated the mainstream reaction to the election result.

Episode 141 - Chapo Cartoon Cavalcade (https://youtu.be/N2cR_jdFfwo) - more of a silly, knockabout one in which the hosts summarise and review a bunch of shitty conservative comic strips - some of them extremely demented - and talk more generally about the tropes and stumbling-blocks inherent in conservative conedy.


Their reading series segments where they go through Ben Shapiro's shitty dystopian novel are also fun and can be found on youtube.

Girls Chat was a great but sadly short lived pod that would discuss LGBT issues and sex work and stuff and would have lots of controversial twittersphere guests on. The entire archive is here https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1TWj9_EsLmL8Cb2OgOJTrzvfpD8z0WfKx

Guests are John McAfee, Ian Miles Cheong, Roosh V, Aimee Terese, Street Fight Radio guy etc. Jake Flores guest on Cum Town was on a couple times too. Def one of the better comedy finds i've come across lately.

Nick either retreats into himself or talks all over them.  Unfortunately, whenever Nick guests on something, it's usually some pod by a libertarian cementhead like Louis Gomez.
This might be correlated? I can imagine Nick being someone who would get extremely self conscious if he doesn't have the freedom to jokingly shit all over the people he's with without knowing either they won't take offence or that he can just dismiss them as pricks a bit.

I think it probably is a bit overstated how heavily improvised cum town is, it does always seem like Nick has a ton of ideas lined up.

It's nice to see Virgil back, however, and the definitive ranking of Chapo hosts is:

1. Matt.
2. Felix.
3. Virgil.
4. Will.
I feel like I'd rank these in a totally different order every time I try to. I think Amber is generally okay but she seems to be way less close to the rest of them and the dynamic has gradually just gotten kinda weird. To some extent Felix feels a bit divorced from it all too these days, but he's capable of being extremely funny so it's easier to ignore.

The episode where they went to that republican convention thing was really good, iirc; pretty sure it's episode 294 but not 100%.
58 is definitely the breakout episode though, in terms of capturing a particular mood in that moment it was extremely effective.


Red Scare is a bizarre thing, there's definitely something interesting about Anna beyond just being obsessively contrarian, feel like in another podcast she could be really good, but her and Dasha combined is just way too much of one specific mood.


Stav's definitely managed to lose those vaguely douchey vibes he used to have and he's been really thriving with it. I do wonder how much of it was just that 90% of the photos of him online around the time I started listening were like this though

i like TrueAnon a lot but Brace is carrying a lot of dead weight with his cohost. i find Liz very similar to Amber, too often contrarian and too rarely funny. Young Chomsky’s musical efforts are top notch though.

the quoted above ranking of Chapo hosts is correct, Felix is by far the funniest but Matt is more endearing and generally the smartest of the bunch.

another couple of leftyish pods i don’t see mentioned much are Struggle Session and Yeah But Still. SS talks more about culture from a left perspective, while YBS is Hollywood centric. Felix is always on YBS, and i think nearly every Chapo member has been on SS.

i mean she’s fine on twitter generally, dunno what it is about her delivery that makes her sound so smug on the pod.

To be fair their first criticism was that he’s smarmy, and I totally agree. Followed him for a while on twitter but in the end got sick of seeing 10 posts as many minutes from him all saying the same thing just with slightly different words. Also a Snyder Cut loving, Last Jedi hating bore. Was funny seeing him get dunked on for giving up weed, drinking some white claws and immediately throwing up.

While we're recommending leftist podcasts, I've recently been very much enjoying Michael and Us - it started off as a retrospective of Michael Moore's career from the perspective of two Canadian guys who followed what I imagine is a pretty common path of idolising Moore as teenagers then becoming increasingly disillusioned with his brand of liberal activism as the Obama years and the subsequent dawn of Trump unfolded. The show has since evolved into a more general format that mainly focuses on political/satirical media from the Bush era - from The Daily Show to Idiocracy to Team America - while also talking about contemporary politics and going down various tenuously linked pop culture rabbit holes when the mood takes them. Its in a similar region to Chapo in terms of perspective and conedic bent, but a bit more subdued and deadpan. Highly recommended.

Last two episodes of Cum Town with them all back in a room have been huge improvements over the slog that Zoom podding/corona talk was. Most recent 'Taste of Coke Zero' had some real crackers in - as well as Nick discussing in detail that weird Hamsterdam-like place in Seattle where it seems the private police force has started to shoot people just like the real cops, which is interesting and bizarre and, being the ultimate contrarian, Nick resists being contrary, and comes through with an actual good take on it all.

Jack Allison is an absolute wank. Constantly made passive-aggressive remarks about Michael Che (the first black head writer on SNL) on twitter then when Che fired back on his social media Allison wrote a whole article about how he was being bullied. Again, can't fault his politics but the holier-than-thou act is a bit rich for a guy who charges hundreds of dollars for seminars on how to be a successful late night writer when his career has crashed and burned. And worst of all - he was boring on Doughboys.

Do you pay any attention to how Che bullies and belittles people on social media, at all? Also - the difference in reach between the head writer on a network TV show and a podcast host is enormous, and it started because Allison quite rightly thought SNL was toothless shite.

Title: Re: Cum Town Podcast

Nick seems to struggle with both stage presence and sticking with a premise beyond the core funny part. It doesn't work so well in standup, like, he's alright but it comes across as though he's putting huge amounts of effort into thinking of bits for it and the return isn't great? It does seem to be remarkably easy to make him lose momentum on a concept

Stav is a natural compere. Have never been too impressed by his own material but he's super likeable; comes across as though he just wants everyone to have a good time and is good at going with the flow of things as a result too. Could do 20 minutes with no material easily.

In terms of doing actual standup oriented material, Adam is probably the best but it's pretty typical Brooklyn based standup shit so doesn't really mesh that well with the audience coming out of cum town.

Half the reason why Nick's stand up doesn't work is his stage presence - even the video podcasts are hard to watch with how awkward he is. It's like Jim Norton, hilarious on the radio but to have to sit through a special watching him blink excessively and open his eyes too wide is torture (also his jokes are shite but I digress).

If Stav was as famous as he is now without the Cum Town association he'd probably be getting some offers like that as it is. Could imagine him being a really good kids tv host seeing as how he comes across like a giant kid half the time too.

Interesting comparison, I remember Mullen saying one time that he thinks Jim Norton hates him, or doesn't think he's funny, despite hiring him to write for things. I wonder if Norton actually just sees way too much of himself in Mullen on stage.

Think he's generally got where he was at in standup bang on though, he was good enough to just about make a living outta it, and totally incapable of moving up beyond that. I'd bet his best shows were ones where he just totally committed to bombing.

Today's premium went some way towards pulling me out of some serious seasonal depression. Given that the episode is called Cream, it's no spoiler to say that Nick spends a high percentage of it in character as Eric Clapton (with a made up but scarily close impression). Everything's here - some truly 'Nick's beautiful mind'-style riffing, hideously offensive digressions and odd nice moments. A Christmas tree.

So sorry if it's been brought up already, but the clip of them using the Stav soundboard just made my throat properly ache with hysteric laughter, so I'd be remiss not to bring it up:

I appreciate the respect the boys have for Katt Williams, especially considering he doesn't seem to get a lot of props from other (white) comedians. I went and watched the Michael Jackson bit they talked about in the newest premium ep and was crying laughing. Also Nick's Biden impression has slightly improved (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKICFpja8A4).

That Katt Williams bit is worth linking: https://www.dailymotion.com/video/xi63s6  I went down a KW Youtube rabbit hole around the time Nick was doing Meatwad Katt Williams, and he's way more worthy of CaB Kudos than all the dusty Limey panel show comedians who get monthly threads on here.

It's fantastic - when Nick, almost embarrassed for him, says: 'We'll just leave that running in the background' - and you can still hear McConaughey blathering on about bumperstickers.

Yeah they went to a cabin somewhere and recorded a load of shows so they could take a few weeks off over Christmas.

The ridiculous “Eric Clapton” episode came in this run but you can definitely tell when they record a few back to back as the quality tends to eventually take a bit of a nose dive..

Last few recent episodes have been great though. The latest one in particular has some lovely Adam baiting from the get go.

For what it's worth I stopped listening to Cum Town again last year (I've dipped in and out since it started) after I found myself wincing too often at every casual referral to a woman as 'bitch'. However ironic you take the racism and homophobia to be the misogyny sure seems real.

It’s cool how you were fine with all the other stuff though until one particular thing made you uncomfortable.

For my two cents I think listening to the boys talk about women and listening to, I dunno, Jim Davidson talk about women are worlds apart.

It’s obviously a similar argument to the “I have black friends therefore I’m not racist” argument but I think the fact they’ve had plenty of female guests on over the years (Bonnie McFarlane, Abby Rosenquist, Amber from Chapo etc) would suggest they don’t hate women. The tone of the show, the jokes, subject matter etc doesn’t change at all no matter who they have on so I’ve no doubt the conviction behind their statements that it’s all in the pursuit of the joke.

For what it’s worth I don’t think they’ve ever said anything that’s made me feel genuinely uncomfortable, although it’s clearly not to everyone’s tastes and I respect anyone that decides it’s not for them.

They’re the sort of guys that I have no doubt actually live their lives adhering to values such as “believe all women” yet gleefully make a point of highlighting the inherent absurdity of that statement. I think their harsh language when talking about women sometimes is just pushing that to the nth degree. Childish? Yes. Funny? Very. It wouldn’t work If it wasn’t.

I suppose it was an accumulation of things. Essentially it popped up in my podcast feed and I stopped looking forward to listening to it. As I say I've dipped in and out, as astonishing as Nick Mullen's mind can be there were always elements of Cum Town that made me feel weary/wary.

Apologies, it might have come across more confrontational than I intended it to be.

I was making the broader point (albeit probably clumsily) that people are quick to laugh at things many will deem offensive but when a particular topic strikes a nerve with them they feel lines have been crossed.

It sounds like you just generally got a bit tired of the relentless nihilism of it all in general which is totally fair enough. I probably misunderstood your point so apologies again for that.

It pivots from being about cum town having a shitty listenership to being about cth being a gateway to fascist leanings on the basis that it leads people to cum town which leads them to fascist shit but like... where’s the evidence of any of that?

Cum town undoubtedly has a lot of shitty people listening to it but I’m not sure that’s stemming from people who were big into CTH. Also don’t see much in the way of proof that cum town is a gateway itself so much as it might attract already shitty people and not do a lot to sway them from the path they’re already on; I definitely don't see how it'd speed up their progress down that path either compared to the alternatives, I'd argue the opposite tbh





Anyways that Clapton episode was a definite low point for me and this whole bulk recording has been ridiculous tbh. Will Menaker is a fairly big humor vacuum for me too but I think it'd have gone even worse without someone else showing up in the middle.

Gwen Snyder is crazy, at least on Twitter. It makes me sad that William Gibson seems to be pals with her (at least on Twitter).

I don't find Cumtown offensive or anything because I grew up in a small town in the north of Ireland in the '90s and if you think a podcast is offensive you should hear some of the things those people say. But I did start to find both the nihilism and the insularity or the faux-insularity boring. The idea that the rest of the world is a punchline or whatever - I mean I guess it's like a metajoke about how Americans think that, but it just started to depress me. These rich guys in an amazing city and all they can do is talk shit and buy esoteric electronic equipment.

I'm always amused by the annual attempt to cancel Cum Town.

Part of the problem derives from the way that when Chapo were rising to prominence, they wanted to share some of their success and so draped their arms around the shoulders of friends who happened to be podcasting. Street Fight did try to lean into the boost they received but the 40 something reformed drug addict cable TV repair guy was never going to be a good fit for the DSA. Similarly, it's not just that Cum Town aren't leftists it's that they're apolitical. I struggle to imagine any of the boys mustering enough energy and civic concern to actually go and stand in a queue and vote. I certainly can't imagine Stav getting passionate about who sits on the supreme court or which group happens to get tax credits.

I think a lot of liberal media types are labouring under the impression that Chapo and Cum Town do the same sort of material. People don't really talk about the 'dirtbag left' except when they're trying to cancel Chapo on the basis of stuff that got said by their mates on Cum Town or Red Scare.

I think that Nick, Stav and Adam were sincerely invested in both of Bernie Sanders' presidential campaigns and Stav to be fair did raise (IIRC) tens of thousands of dollars for various BLM-aligned charities last summer (just by streaming a bunch of games on Twitch, but still) so I don't think "apolitical" is quite a fair descriptor of them, although I think you're certainly right about them being disinterested in most instances of electoral politics.

Having said that, it was incredibly funny when the New York Times did a hysterical article on Chapo last year and they alluded to Cum Town (without mentioning it by name) as part of a list of podcasts that were characterised as "bards of the new American left," especially as this was the period when the podcast mostly consisted of Nick just pissing about with a soundboard.

Adam and Stav would definitely say they're leftists,  but it's clearly an act to look cool (Adam) / get pussy (Stav). Adam is too self involved to care about other people and Stav is too dumb to understand politics.

Nick has said he doesn't identify as a leftist multiple times on the pod. His only strongly held "leftist" position is free healthcare, apart from that he's basically an apolitical, free speech guy.

Red Scare is fucking awful. Unfortunately many leftists on Twitter hate it because it's "fascist" (not really, although the hosts do come up with some contrarian reactionary takes, whether ironic or not), when the major reason it sucks is that it's dull crap produced by vacuous people with no redeeming qualities as podcasters.

Well, it is true that Nick seems the least left of the three but I always got the impression that he mainly says contrary things to get an amusing rise out of people.

I'm afraid I can't think of any specific episodes off the top of my head, but I think the topic has come up quite a few times and these are some of the takes they've given that I can remember (I'm generally a bit obsessed with the spread of UK comedy among American comics so I always like to mentally catalogue this stuff):

- they all like Peep Show and Adam has called it his favourite ever sitcom. Nick, as mentioned above, likes it but prefers Mitchell and Webb's sketch work. I think he's specifically mentioned the sketch from TMAWL series one with the rival actors making a Sherlock Holmes film (where they alternate the roles of Holmes and Watson in every shot) as a favourite.

- Nick, as mentioned above by amputeeporn, has mentioned his love of Keeping Up Appearances several times, calling it one of his favourite sitcoms.

- Adam has definitely talked about liking Brass Eye and Chris Morris in general. I'm unsure if Nick has talked about him.

- they all seem to have a lot of affection for Mr. Bean.

- All three of them (but especially Nick) are generally very dismissive of UK stand-up and particularly the Edinburgh Fringe, which they seem to characterise as a kind of mecca for gimmicky one-man-shows rather than "real" comedy. (this is one of their most frustrating takes to me and I think they come across as weirdly belligerent and incurious on this front for people who otherwise seem quite knowledgeable about comedy.)


I'm sure they've brought lots of other stuff up through the years but that's all I can think of at the moment. Doing a search or two on that cum.tube site might possibly yield some more results.

I've got to say, there are a lot of British comics I like, but he does have a point about a lot of the Edinburgh stuff.

I remember Patrice O'Neal lived in the UK for a bit, and he described British stand-up as "the pontifications of Ian Igglepuss" which I find devastatingly funny.

Haha! I can certainly see where they're coming from in terms of the Fringe as a cultivator of a specifically trendy, boutiquish style of comedy that often seems to prioritise structural cleverness, pathos, provocativeness etc. over actually being funny. It's their total aversion to the very idea of the UK having any sort of worthwhile stand-up heritage and their insistence that its contemporary scene has nothing of value to offer that rankles with me a bit more. Especially since - to be perfectly honest - none of them are really particularly accomplished stand-ups themselves.

Adam has also mentioned Alan Partridge a couple of times which the other two didn’t dismiss so I’m guessing they’re fans as well.

They have a real disdain for U.K. standup though although that appears to be a belligerent blanket dismissal as opposed to any concrete opinions. I can’t remember them mentioning any U.K. stand ups by name, just statements like “U.K. stand up is the worst” etc.

Stav is definitely the stand up with the most potential to actually break out a forge a successful career for himself. I like the stuff I’ve heard from Adam but he seems quite lazy and Nick appears to be quite ordinary at it despite having done it quite prolifically since he was 16 and talking about stand up as if he’s the chief authority on what’s good and what isn’t.

There was a brief period where Nick was quite active on the subreddit. Someone posted the 'This is the one thing we didn't want to happen' clip from the Brass Eye special, he said he hadn't seen it but that the clip was hilarious. I think it was linked in this thread but the subreddit has now been removed in order to stop nazism

Yeah, to me it just sounds like they haven't been exposed to enough of it. I've had to listen to plenty of people in this country just outright dismiss US stand-up because they watched 10 minutes of Joe Rogan on Netflix.

- Nick, as mentioned above by amputeeporn, has mentioned his love of Keeping Up Appearances several times, calling it one of his favourite sitcoms.

Seem to remember Nick mentioning Brass Eye in the context of British shows which are good but ultimately lazy because they only create tiny numbers of episodes.

This is definitely still one of the funniest things ever when it's on form, but I stopped listening regularly a while ago. The absolute best quality about the show - Nick's willingness to make a punchline out of absolutely everything, himself included - is also it's worst, because it literally never changes and goes through infuriating periods in which it's primarily lead by his stubbornness and misanthropy, which rubs off negatively on the brain of any sane person. I tend to listen to old bits and the odd new riff on Youtube and its undeniable from being more exposed to its audience in the comments that a large portion of them are terrible. The same could be said of lots of media I enjoy, but given the nature of their sense of humour and the current cultural state of affairs, it feels a little less defensible than any other old media that couldn't possibly live up to today's standards. I didn't feel like that a while ago, but it's crept in...

Saying that, I don't think any of them are actually right-wing in any discernible sense, Stav in particular seems like a really nice person, and I do admire and appreciate Nick's creative commitment to being really funny and genuinely not giving a fuck. It would be embarrassing to hear if he was proud of himself or courting a broader audience, but it just rolls on carelessly, which is quite charming in small doses.

Part of the issue is the UK comics that get US exposure. You'd like to think Stewart Lee and James Acaster would come up high on lists when people made an effort to find some English comics but it's gonna be after people like Jimmy Carr, McIntyre, Daniel Sloss... And if you were to approach it by watching a variety show (which I suspect would be how standups might approach it) it'd be just the Avalon crew on rotation again.

In the US people who should know better probably think Gervais occupies the kind of role Stewart Lee does.

Catching up on these and think they're low-key going through a really good patch. The vibe seems pretty chilled out, with Nick easing up a lot on Adam and everyone sounding reasonably happy. I enjoyed their ad-read feedback from Blue Chew. One of those Blue Chew reads that riffs on so long that Nick suddenly has to say: 'Kushy Dreams!'

Good post.

I stopped listening to it a good while back now since I binged so hard on it when I first discovered it, ploughing through a good couple hundred episodes, that I felt like I'd heard all I needed to hear. I still maintain that it's some of the funniest shit I've ever heard, up there with Athletico Mince and MST3K as a media which just has me laughing uncontrollably.

Anyone thinking the boys are right wing would do well to go back and listen to the episode they did when Trump was first elected president. They gave a solid commentary on the whole thing which cemented their political stance - very much anti Trump and not right wing at all - without them ever having to outright say it.

That way of communicating sort of sums them up pretty well, I think, in that just because they're never saying they're one thing or the other, doesn't mean they're skirting/avoiding addressing the fact that they are actually one thing or the other. This obviously makes it super easy for right wingers to piggyback on that ambiguity (since we live in an age where post-irony is such a huge factor in why shit really fucking stinks in a lot of the media we can consume) but it certainly doesn't mean Cum Town itself can be tarred with the same brush. Of course, they could be doing a lot more to speak out against that sort of thing, but since when has Cum Town's brand been about acting even remotely responsible for its actions? It's the podcast equivalent of the longest ever fart joke and part of me still wants to defend it for being unapologetically and hilariously awful.

I'm a very occasional listener - I usually only check in on a long commute when I've run out of other stuff to listen to - but I was quite surprised to see how popular it was on here. It's very funny, sometimes incredibly so, but it's hard to deny that it ticks virtually all the boxes when it comes to what your average internet person deems "unacceptable" and "indefensible". I've always been of the mind that some things are funny specifically because of how indefensible they are, and I think Cum Town's a fairly good example of that (especially since it's very hard to argue they're sincere about anything they say), but still the main recurring joke is that gayness is about the funniest thing that could happen in any given situation.

I think what appeals to a lot of people about it (which I think they've even mentioned) is that it acts as a kind of friendship simulator. This is absolutely the kind of stuff your average teenager might've offered among friends to make each other laugh - the carefree days. They've just managed to harness the best of that and turn it into a hugely popular podcast. I think there's been something of a gap in comedy for this sort of thing that they've filled quite nicely, but I don't think there's much more justification to it than that.

I've been in the US a while and James Acaster's special was heavily promoted on Netflix, was on James Corden's show at least once, and I've seen memefied clips of his shared around all over the place. Conversely, I'm not sure many people here could name Michael McIntyre or Daniel Sloss. Even Jimmy Carr gave it a go out here five or six years ago, but didn't get very far. You're more likely to stumble across someone who knows Dylan Moran or Eddie Izzard.

Dunno why I felt the need to point that out. The equivalence of Stewart Lee and James Acaster just struck me as mad. People really don't know Stewart Lee out here. I've met precisely one person who did, and bizarrely it was because of the Tom O'Connor bit (which he loved, despite having no idea who Tom O'Connor was, but also felt no need to investigate further).

Yeah, agreed. They're in that nuanced area that doesn't really get factored into this ongoing debate about offensiveness in comedy. I've got a few "woke" friends who are very intolerant of a lot of stand-up material, but when joking around with them, they'll laugh at the sort of things you might hear on Cumtown. Maybe it's the context, stand-up is viewed as some sort of power position and there should be higher quality control. When you're messing around with friends, there's a mutual understanding. I think Kitson used to have a bit about having a close friend with whom you can "play with the dangerous flame of ironic bigotry". That was many years ago though, so I don't know if he stands by it now.

You have an understanding with the Cumboys because you're in their company a lot, and you know how they actually feel. They do have a habit of hanging about with people who might actually be bad, though. But it shows who they really are when, for example, they were on a show with Anthony Cumia and were very uncomfortable with his real hatefulness.

Feel like I drop in and say this every few weeks, but I reckon they're on a nice little run lately. Seems to be a very friendly vibe between them all, with Adam contributing (funnily!) much more often. While I'm sure some of that is him slowly recovering from his mum's recent death, Nick seems decidedly cool with him right now. And Nick's putting energy in, some newish (to me) impressions and properly going for it, trying to make Adam and Stav laugh. Also clearly enjoying taking things just over the line to make Stav uncomfortable.

I just listened to the recent episode 258 and it's wall-to-wall silliness. It's amazing how funny their adverts are, and so naturally due to their combined incompetence/complete lack of a fuck.

The adverts are amazing and so unique for a podcast. Not only do I not want to skip them, they can be the funniest part of the show. I never would have believed it was possible. Plenty of podcasts try and make their adverts funny but you can still tell they care about the advert doing well and hitting the points from the copy. It dulls the humour. I agree the lack of giving a fuck is the secret sauce here.

I don’t think this is strictly true. If it was I don’t think the podcast would be in any way as popular. When he’s on form Nick can be as quick as anyone.

True, he’s not on Peter Cook’s level (few were) but at his best his ability to come up with outrageously funny stuff off the top of his head (and seemingly out of nowhere) can be almost dizzying.

Of course the criticism of it lapsing into lazy repetition is also completely valid, especially on the episodes when they seem bored and uninspired. Mullen firing on all cylinders makes me laugh more than almost anyone though.
