Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend

This "lost," never-previously-aired episode was recorded live at Bumbershoot in late 2015 and features Mike Lawrence, Hutch Harris (The Thermals) and Rachel Ratner (Wimps). Trapp Dog flew out from New York to play the jingles live! I love everyone on this show.

Merry Xmas and Happy Holidays! Hope you enjoy this replay of my Tiffany Haddish episode with a brand new beginning. Come see me at Sketch Fest!  And buy Tiffany's book!

I first met comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish (KeanuThe Carmichael Show) when we both appeared on a radio show and ever since then I’ve hoped to have her on ARIYNBF. I’d heard bits and pieces of her story and got the sense she’d had a rough upbringing but I wasn’t quite prepared for the intensity of what she’d experienced. Abusive parents, foster care, living in her car, an abusive first husband, care taking from the age of 8, and even as I write this I feel as if I’m not conveying the particulars that make her story so powerful. And yet throughout, she’s joking and positive. In addition, we talked about the importance of trusting your first mind, when she was misquoted by TMZ, auditioning for SNL, the help she received from Kevin Hart, arguing with Dane Cook, Six Flags abortions, eating rat meat, peach jello, audition makeup and so much more. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Wendy Molyneux wishes she could monetize the thing she's best at—word scrambles. Alison has an update about the guy known for saying, "You look like you've been chowin' box, man." David Huntsberger's inquiring about a circling car. Daniel wore a lot of neon as a kid. Alison's concerned her voice is too sing-songy. Plus panic sweats, coughing attacks, The Gal Brothers, Nibbles, eating your own, the saga of Alison's getting Hand, Foot and Mouth from a contaminated beach (maybe), a round of Just Me Or Everyone and an adoptable dog named Penny Lane.
