On episode three of 2 Bears 1 Cave, the newest podcast from #ThiccBoys Tom Segura and Bert Kreischer, the pair talk about a show they pitched that didn’t make it on television. The show, Buzzed, was a cash cab style game show where random people were picked up from a bar on a party bus and drank while trying to win money. Contestants would party and drink with Bert, while playing ridiculous games written by Tom. As you can imagine, the games escalated and became something the two would never expect. We may never get to see the show but enjoy this clip of them describing the craziness that Comedy Central wouldn’t air.

We all know Kelsey Cook from her podcast, Self-Helpless, and her video series on All Things Comedy, Wrists of Fury, but have you seen or remember her show on youtube, Stand-ups Doing Makeup? She is a foosball champ, hilarious comedian, and a really good makeup artist. Is there anything she can’t do? With that being said there are many comedians that should just stick to telling jokes on stage. Despite their best efforts, her guests transform Kelsey’s face into some version of the joker without fail. It is the thought that counts though, right? Some guests on the show were Sean Patton, Mark Normand, Ryan Sickler, Bert Kreischer, Brad Williams, Jessimae Peluso, Jim Norton, and Sam Tripoli. Kelsey no longer does this show but it is nice to go down memory lane!
