Nerdist Podcast #111: Live from SDCC with RiffTrax, Pereira & Friedlander

It’s the second Nerdist Podcast live from San Diego ComicCon! Joining the show is Kevin Pereira, Judah Friedlander and the guys from RiffTrax, plus some very special guests! They tell stories from the convention, Jonah and Matt find out which fans are on their teams and some very gross tales are shared. We once again earn our “explicit” tag, kiddies! EXTRA NSFW.

    And apparently posting a comment reloaded and fixed the page issue… nothing to see here, pay no mind to the crazy man talking to himself

  2. RainmanFTW says:

    Not sure if it’s only on my end, but it looks like we’ve got a broken file on this one *sadface*

  3. Cheeseball701 says:

    Chris, may I suggest a title for your first episode of Hard ‘N Phirm’s Musical Timehole:

    “Abraham Lincoln and the Phallus with Malice Toward None”

    *The phrase comes from the end of his second inaugural address. It becomes a little funnier if you continue the sentence: “With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right…”

    I was wondering when Big C would do some RiffTrax. Also, Doug’s Buffalo Bill voice makes me wet myself. Judah’s story reminded me of when I shit myself in my car. Recently. Also, I think I know more about MST3K than Chris. TRIVIA-OFF!

  5. pixelbuffer says:

    FUPA was new to me.

    My friends and I have traditionally gone with “gunt”.

  6. Duncan7 says:

    Chris, when you referenced “that thing at the school where people turned into dicks,” I think you meant the Stanford Prison Experiment. As it happens, a 40th-anniversary writeup was just posted, here:

  7. The Volunteer State says:

    I really enjoyed this episode! And as someone who doesn’t comment on blog posts often, that means something?

    However! I’d just like to offer a hearty “fuck you, buddy” to the guy that said “Tennessee” so derisively at the end of this episode. As much as it may pain some of you coastal jerkbags, you don’t have a monopoly on culture! This is the deal we’ve worked out: You guys get to have 98% of cool cultural artifacts (basically everything that isn’t Saddle Creek Records), while we get to have an annual Rifftrax Live show and occasionally Jack White, when he’s not touring or whatever. Deal with it, Los Angeles!

    That is all.

  8. Q-Dragon says:

    Hello just thought I’d say loved the episode. I’m actually a very new fan, my brother and friend pretty much just listened to the podcast on the drive down to comic-con. (unfortunately too young to go to the live show)

    I might get some shit from other commenters but this seems like the best way to contact you. I’m wondering if you’re looking for a science blogger? I know Mira Booey writes about NASA sometimes but I’d be honored to write for you guys. Like a weekly article about science news from a nerdy perspective, I already have a science news vlog that might interest you.

    Anyway great work and thanks,

  9. jarod says:

    Off topic, dude you should totally create a section linking to each podcast.. The current way is great but it would be easier to find the podcasts if they each had their own link to subscribe somewhere and a description of what each podcast was about.

  10. Rodney Brett says:

    Great podcast! Loved the bit about Sarah Silverman performing at a college and the entire crowd is tweeting on their phones about how much they are enjoying the show. LOL. so accurate.

  11. Anita says:

    Chris originated Rock of Ages? Wow, didn’t know that! Cool stuff, thanks!

  12. Rob S says:

    One of the first MST3Ks I saw was Rocketship XM. About a week later in was the weekend movies on one of the Independent channels in Chicago.

  13. Walter says:

    Is it me or does it seem like there is hostility between Judah and Doug?

  14. eileen says:

    Which podcast awards can this episode win and how do we nominate you????!!!

  15. Ryan says:

    This episode was absolutely hilarious. I loudly burst out laughing and was brought to tears by the Pannekoeken bit and people in my office came over to my desk to ask if I was ok.

  16. M. Bentley says:

    The dick moment in “Teen Wolf” is actually a woman. Yet again another fantastic episode!

  17. Taryn says:

    Another Ohio nerdist fan…

    Listened to this at work today, where I do most of my nerdist listening. Hoping to make my own trip to Ceder point soon but for me it’s a four 1/2 hour drive so will need a bundle of nerdist podcasts to sustain me.

  18. Mandy W. says:

    Totally Hilarious! Well worth the wait.

  19. Rob O. says:

    A super awesome amazing podcast. The Lincoln song was great, and the plethora of guests was like a cornicopia of joy pouring into my ears.

    I hope that one day, when I’ve mastered the ways of the Force, that I might sit in on such a podcast and bask in the tumultuous waves of comedic euphoria that the nerdist so lovingly emits.

    Thank you.

  20. Vincent S says:

    ^I’d like to think it’s appreciation for the content being released rather than the content itself. I sometimes get the podcast just before I leave for such and such but I want to say Good Job before closing the site.

    Keep it up guys.

  21. Dereck says:

    Why do people comment about how they are going to listen in the future? THANKS FOR THAT INSIGHT

  22. joe non says:

    NO, The Kid in back to the future 3 needed to use the restroom, signal to his parents.

  23. TamiJK says:

    Hey JetPackBlues, another OHIO nerdist fan here, but I’m an adult…I’ll be listening at work tomorrow not CP…boo! Have fun and some salt water taffy 😉

  24. anncoultersadamsapple says:

    I didn’t know Chris was in the original Rock Of Ages, and just yesterday I recorded and watched House of 1000 Corpses without knowing he was in it. Chris is a fascinating person.

    Great episode.

  25. Amanda says:

    That poster is amazing! I would totally frame it and put it on my wall.

  26. JetpackBlues says:

    Wow, almost two hours! This will be great to listen to on my way to Cedar Point tomorrow.

  27. Miles S. says:

    I find your lack of Hostful disturbing…

  28. CXRengel says:

    The creative stuff they come up with for the posters remind me of flyers for Patton Oswalt’s shows.

  29. Tom says:

    Or maybe the fine print that says “Doug Benson” in the banner is a better clue. Doh.

  30. dana says:

    as is the woot monkey and the apple bong… haha…

  31. Tom says:

    Enjoy your shithead must be a clue to who one of the special guests is….
