Who Is the Secret Cameo in DEADPOOL 2?



  1. Ronnie says:

    Brody is the funnest comic out there these day’s. 

  2. Shawn Graham says:

    This is one of my favorites yet. Yeah, it’s uncomfortable to talk about mental illness and the surrounding issues, but that’s why comedy is fucking amazing; it lets us deal with some of these things and not feel like we’re just being masochistic.

  3. Stacey says:

    The book you guys were talking about at the beginning is “Allen Carr’s Easyway to Quit Smoking” I used it, it works!! 🙂

  4. Hoot Brooks says:

    Answer to “Why’ did you hit that girl?”
    “Bitch pulled a gun on me!”

  5. Eric says:

    Great podcast! I’ll be at @midnight tomorrow, so I’m looking forward to that.

  6. Nikki says:

    btw, Seroquel sounds like a Pokemon

  7. Nikki says:

    I’m sure I’m no where near as bad as some people, but I’ve been on Lexapro forever for my Anxiety Disorder/Panic Attacks. I don’t like that I’m on it and rely on it – but it helps a hell of a lot. I tried to not be on it for a few months, and then I was having daily issues. During this period, I was even trying natural supplements and such – sometimes that avenue just doesn’t work for certain things. Wish I didn’t have to be on it, but it is what it is.

  8. Jesse says:

    It makes me inordinately happy that Nerdist is talking about DBZ, ad or not.

  9. Down10 says:

    This was a surprisingly rough episode, especially when Brody Stevens started talking about being put on antipsychotic meds. Something about the names of those things and how they are “chemical straitjackets” is really fucking creepy.

    Anyway, I have a hazy memory and was morbidly curious as to what exactly happened during Brody’s manic episode over Twitter. This LA Weekly article is a helpful record of the incident:

    Glad to hear he’s doing better. Brody! Stevens! Medicated! All the way! Yes!

  10. edwardy says:

    my co-worker’s ex-wife makes $76 hourly on the computer. She has been out of work for six months but last month her income was $16913 just working on the computer for a few hours. you could try here>>>

  12. Wildride says:

    Do you think anyone ever referred to the cleavage of the actress who played Gwendolyn Pierce on Charles in Charge as Jennifer Runyon’s canyon? Yeah, probably not. And if they did, they should almost certainly stop.

    “What are we waiting for?”
    “Just a few indecent thoughts.”

  13. Wildride says:

    Yep, the easy way to quit smoking and the easy way to quit drinking. Nikki Glaser is a proponent of his books.

  14. melf melfman says:

    the book is called “The Easy Way to Stop Smoking by Allen Carr” (that helped paul f thompson quit. now i must push AND believe. and i am intimating a number two

  15. Nuke LaDouche says:

    It seems highly unlikely that Brody will read this, but it also seems unlikely that Chris will. Yet, I know he does. So I will say to Brody…You are great! I love your comedy and Enjoy It! I know life can sometimes feel like its never going to go your way, but for a guy as great as you it absolutely will. You are the best Mr. Steven Brody Stevens! Don’t forget it!

  16. chris hardwick says:

    @Travis: Craps! Sorry about that! I have alerted the lower downs! (I almost typed “higher ups” but then realized that I’m the boss)

  17. Travis says:

    Hey, just letting you know, your promocode for funimation doesnt work. and yes, im trying to purchase season one of dbz, bluray, as described in the intro.

  18. Peter Whitney says:

    Been loving him since I first saw him on Public Access here in Seattle. So glad to see things going well for him

  19. kris says:

    came here in the hopes of someone correcting “2midnight”, leaving satisfied. thankyou Purpleslog

  20. Ryan says:


  21. Joe Friday says:

    Well you have to go 2midnight before you can say you’re @midnight. Geographically speaking.

  22. Purpleslog says:

    Is “2Midnight” actually “@Midnight”?

  23. max says:
