James III & Matt Catanzano
A reverential pop culture variety show, hosted by Matt Catanzano (Daddy’s Home 2, Above Average) and James III (Astronomy Club, Adam Ruins Everything), two nostalgic grown men with too many opinions about the fringe films, tv shows, music, and merchandise from their childhoods all the way to their last week-hoods.
A sketch, improv, and VERY LOUD talk show with special guests that dares ask the hard-hitting questions: does M. Night Shyamalan deserve more chances, how attracted to the female Gremlin should we be, and was Ecto-Cooler ever good? (yes, very, no)
