This is the second half of our extended interview with Rick Shapiro. Rick talks to us about how he got started in comedy, which leads him into sharing with us his past as a mob errand boy, and his times as a male prostitute. Plus, it wouldn't be an episode of Delicious Mediocrity if we didn't discuss the Tea Party movement. A truly insightful, and hilarious, end to our interview with Rick Shapiro. Enjoy!

We were honored to have comedian Rick Shapiro as our guest! Rick talks to us about his role on HBO's Lucky Louie, his relationships with women, L.A., sex, and his twin brother. We had such a great time that we recorded an extra long show and split it into two parts. So, this is the first half of our talk with Rick Shapiro and the second half will be out next week. Enjoy!

Episode 11's guest (and maybe Joe's replacement?) is comedian, and "Shower Artist", Douglas Gale! This week we discuss the possibility of Derek having children, and what effect Derek's child might have on society as a whole, adoption vs. impregnating, and cats. Then we speculate what Joe might be doing in Canada at this very moment...where is he? What is he wearing? What episode of the Gilmore Girls is he watching?
