  1. Big things are happening for Hannibal and he’s only going to get bigger.  And it’s well deserved…this guy’s hilarious and hardworking.

  2. Jenny says:

    I love Hannibal on Broad City! That show is so refreshing and hilarious! 🙂

  3. Joe says:

    Here’s a link to the Bill Burr turnaround reference in the podcast

  4. Nick says:

    Chris, stop being hypersensitive to the race of your guest. It sounds creepy. #awkwardwhiteguys

    Wow your on a first name basis with Chris Hardwick? I am sure he cares about your opinion of how he is or is not being sensitive. #internettroll

  5. Blue says:

    Chris, stop being hypersensitive to the race of your guest. It sounds creepy. #awkwardwhiteguys

  6. Brian says:

    For real though Kyle. Try to fucking calm it down with your loud ass laugh. It’s truly annoying and distracting.

  7. Deegan K says:

    Such a great podcast. Love when you have guests who are comedians and really bring conversation to the table. Felt almost as good as a hostful.

  8. Dylan says:

    Love Hannibal. Hilarious, offbeat in the best way, and seems like a nice guy.

  9. cp says:

    If I had a bachelorette party, I would absolutely want to go to a good comedy show. But that’s because I’m not an asshole, and you would never know its a bachelorette party.

  10. Cion says:

    edit this part out lmao

  11. Dave says:

    Hannibal is my favorite comedian now, too.

  12. Tillburg says:

    Hannibal is so crazy good. Found him and Pete Holmes through Pandora and I’ve had such a high bar for comedy set ever since. I’m so hyped for that new special.

  13. David says:

    @td: please keep #CancelNerdist alive!

    • Robb says:

      Seriously, why are you here?  Some of us actually enjoy listening to this podcast.  We actively seek it out to listen to.  You’re actually putting effort into the trolling that you’re doing.  Find something more productive to do.  Eat a cape of dicks.

  14. Td says:

    Chris wanted Hannibal on the podcast for a really long time, then he turned it into you made it weird with the some assumptive mildly racist questions…

  15. carol says:

    I loved this podcast have never heard of this comedian but he is hilarious!

  16. Patrick says:

    I have this feeling that Jonah used a stapler for his conference call.

  17. bastien says:

    I hope they talk about the time he helped save the town from wild hogs!

  18. TimParker says:

    Joy! One of the funniest comedians and coolest people in the business! Can’t wait to listen. Thanks guys for these podcasts, always a bright spot throughout the week.
