Who Is the Secret Cameo in DEADPOOL 2?

Who Is the Secret Cameo in DEADPOOL 2?



  1.  Was so fucking pissed of for missing the bus home and had to wait 2.5 hours for the next one. Whent her and found this fantastic gem. Thanks guy’s for making me laught and forgett my long wait

  2. Mjau mjau….mjau mjau….mjau mjau mjau mjau mjau MJAU

  3. Mike says:

    It turns out I’m going to be that guy to point out 1 isn’t prime and 2 is.

  4. Kevy Metal says:

    My favorite comments are the ones that basically say “I didn’t like the thing you did on this thing that is free and that I have no obligation to actually listen to since I didn’t pay for it but here’s my opinion anyway”.

  5. Lance says:

    that was excellent

  6. Dave says:

    2 is a prime number, also!

  7. Dave E says:

    Registered literally just to say every bit killed, up until the last bit which killed all future generations.

  8. Ian Buck says:

    Man, maybe I should get into improv…

  9. Eric says:

    I don’t know why but that was so damn funny.

  10. Wildride says:

    Yeah, I don’t know about that gritty reboot of Weekend at Bernie’s.

  11. BassBone says:

    Hi, I’m not a shark.

  12. michael jeacock says:

    you know what happy days needed?
    more shark!

  13. NotMF says:

    The ending really ‘came’ together there, haha


  14. Chris Hardwick says:

    @LevelledUp: actually the only thing that was missed was by you. we did that when Nat & Jim were on together a handful of months back. SO THERE.

  15. novaseason says:

    Jim is so fucking funny. I think he makes Chris and Jonah funnier. I love when comedians sort of meta-improv and talk about comedy and shit. I am glad I know a little about comedy, because in turn that makes things funnier.

  16. sydney richardson says:

    Loved this episode, especially the ending.

  17. Krump's Brother says:

    Great podcast, but one note. The Seuss book about testicles is One Ball, Two Ball, Red Ball, Blue Ball

  18. Diana says:

    What a delight. I loved the improv act so much.

  19. Rashaad says:

    LOL yea that really did get weird at the end…. But BRILLIANT. Very funny guys.

  20. jon says:

    “Have you seen 700 Sundays? I got through like 25 minutes of it” God, just shut up Jonah. We all know you are a bitter loser hater.

  21. jon says:

    “That is what I like about dubstep” Jonah. God, hearing him is so annoying. There’s nothing funny or original about that fat fuck.

  22. chris says:

    great episode!

  23. BLOOOR says:

    More improv please!

  24. Bran says:

    shhhhhhhhhhh. It was a good podcast.

  25. GuanoLad says:

    Well. That was surreal.

  26. Alec says:

    “I like having written.”

    Whoa, you spilled some Nerdist Writers Panel into my Nerdist Classic!

  27. LevelledUp says:

    Random goofing around can be fun but with this highly intelligent guest who no doubt has a ton of interesting anecdotes, a real interview would have been nice. Not bad, just kind of a missed opportunity.

  28. Atticus says:

    That ending made my pants so cummy.

  29. todd says:

    Awesome work as per usual. Thank you Nerdist.

  30. jgalley says:

    Yah..let’s not do that ending shit again…great podcast otherwise.

  31. What Happened to the Quemments says:

    Wish this had gone up earlier, but seeing Jim’s name made it worth the wait. Not to mention the hardcore improv session you guys had was one of my favorite moments of the show.

  32. zzk says:

    well that got weird 😛
