This week, Sara and Nikki reveal their hidden motives for hosting a TV show: proving their tween Twitter haters wrong and meeting famous men. It's been a big day for up-and-coming guest comic Michelle Wolf, who arrives at the podcast-office straight from getting herself strategically fired from her impressive-sounding job. Michelle outlines her origin story, twisting from her involvement in the Bear Stearns collapse to her experiments with pretty much every type of comedy and eventually bringing her to today, her first day of fully committing to the craft. Your humble hosts have weathered the risk and excitement of this transition before and offering their insight on the situation leads to a frank and lively discussion about the feelings of workplace confidence and self-loathing that exist in every job everywhere. Before bouncin', the trio talks pee about Jimmy Pardo's landmark podcast Never Not Funny, Cory Cavin's rising webseries Model Wife, and Beyonce's upcomin' rip-roarin' scandal-crushin' Super Bowl show. Oh, hey, and REMEMBER: Nikki and Sara's well-titled TV show Nikki & Sara LIVE premieres THIS TUESDAY 1/29 at 11pm/10c on MTV! Ahhh! Gather 'round the telly with your family and friends and be there from the beginning.
Here is Michelle Wolf’s entire performance at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Most people have only heard clips. Here is all of it – 19 minutes and roughly 50 jokes – unedited. This is the beginning of a broader mission on Wavemaker: exploring the deeper significance of comedy – from ancient Greece to the 2018 mid-term elections and beyond. What’s funny? Why? Can comedy enable Americans of divergent political perspectives to laugh – together? Should that even be its goal? Those are just a few of the questions I’ll be pursuing with future guests (one of whom you’ll get to sample at the end of this episode) from my perspective as both a journalist and the son of a standup comic. Warning: the language in this routine gets very explicit.

You have no idea how badly we wanted to stay away from this whole Correspondents Dinner conversation but we shy away from nothing. We take an objective look at Michelle Wolf just long enough for the hashtag to make sense hehe. We absolutely destroy Bill Cosby for what he did to the Little Rascals and we debate this whole Apu crisis. We spend a little time discussing how great it is that North Korea is getting rid of their nukes... or are they? haha We even have a quick talk about ancient sexting which everyone should enjoy. Danny says goodbye to Mitzi Shore of the Comedy Store in West Hollywood and we discuss the documentary "I am Sam" about Sam Kinnison.
A man kills women because he can't have them. An elected politician reacts harshly to speech he doesn't like. Supporters and critics of Wolf's monologue rip each other apart over whether Wolf went too far or got it just right. This is our second Monday in a row where we book no guests and take your calls. What does this mean to you? It's your calls and Colin.
