We're back from Sketchfest and Alison can't stop talking about it. Jeff packed light to accommodate audio equipment so he had to perform his previously-unknown-to-us hair routine on the fly. Wendy Molyneux's got plans for the afterlife. David Huntsberger may or may not have gotten tiny hair extensions. Alison's relationship with grocery stores is unsettling to Daniel. Plus a round of Just Me Or Everyone!

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.
