Nerdist Podcast: Nick Frost

The hilarious Nick Frost is on the podcast! He hangs out with Chris and Matt to talk about his fascination with “butter dogs,” why he thinks he is so good at bowling, and the perks of being a knight. They also come up with a great TV show idea called What’s All This, Then?, Nick talks about the children’s book he is currently writing, and he talks about his new movie The Boxtrolls! Plus, Matt’s got an iPhone 6 Plus, there’s NSFW talk about, well, several different things from the East, Edgar Wright’s “foppish” bowling style is noted, there are Fleshlights galore, and the guys imagine the Klan on the moon and Hitler in color.

See The Boxtrolls in theaters September 26th!

See Isaac Hempstead-Wright talk about The Boxtrolls at Comic-Con here!

Why the Internet is Overreacting About RICK AND MORTY Season 4



  1. Derrick says:

    Did you have to start with a Walking Dead spoiler?  For the Netflix crowd just recently got the episodes. I’m almost  through the last season and then I decided to listen to the Nick Frost podcast…..Thanks!   I make through the whole Spring and Summer only to have the ending spoiled when I’m literally five episodes from it!     Anyways, love the podcast, really enjoyed Kevin Smith’s third episode.

  2. Nikki says:

    Last crusade is my favorite Indy too, Matt!
    Also, I used to watch Stigmata all the time for some reason hah

  3. zer0zer0 says:

    This one will stay on my computer for ever, right next to the Katee Sackhoff and Joe Manganiello episodes, since listening to this will never get old!
    And after listening to this a few times, I now want to here an X-rated version of Phirman’s “Chicken Monkey Duck” song with Nick singing “Pussy, Pussy, Ass”  I can’t stop laughing at the thought of seeing this!

  4. objectivecyd says:

    I’m incredibly disappointed that in all of the filthy talk about butter dogs no one addressed the inherent dangers of letting a *giant fighting dog* anywhere near one’s lady parts. Missed opportunity

  5. Gwen says:

    Loved this show! So funny, all the way through. Also: my heart leapt in my chest upon hearing that Matt  watches and enjoys ‘The Great British Bake-off’  – me, too! 🙂

  6. farleyk says:

    Yeah, this is one of those gems where you laugh your way through it, then the next day, you’re just going along, and you think “Smiling Hitler” and you lose it. Or “What’s All This Then”.

  7. John in Ohio says:

    I’d give a kidney to see Simon, Nick, and Edgar on @Midnight uncensored/uncut!  Love them all, but I can’t get enough of Nick.

  8. Arabrabbra says:

    I HEART HIM SO MUCHHHHH!!! So genuinely funny

  9. Bianca says:

    I laughed the whole way through this podcast, awesome chat guys!! 

  10. Sarah says:

    My coworkers now think I am crazy because I am laughing so hard about the sliders and “What’s All This Then?” riff. Such a great episode, guys.

  11. Delightful. So nice to have Matt back on. And Nick is EVERYTHING: funny, talented, down to earth. Really great. His WTF interview was really great as well.

  12. tomK says:

    This episode is a great bookend to Nick’s episode on WTF with Maron. I think they recorded that one Friday, and the Nerdist episode on Monday. On Maron’s he was talking about how nervous he was to meet Ben Kingsley, etc.

  13. Lu says:

    Chris, I share your love for Better Of Dead. My whole family loves that movie. My sister and I rented it weekly, and we still all constantly quote it. (It’s got raisins it it- you like raisins. I want my $2! Right off. You said you didn’t like all the grease from fried bacon, so I boiled it.)

  14. Jen says:

    The walking dead train car…the Schrodinger’s Cat of TV hiatus states. 

  15. Ian Buck says:

    I would watch the shit out of “What’s all this then?”

  16. Wildride says:

    Butter dogs, sure, but mayonnaise dogs:
    (watch to the end) 😉

  17. Juan Garcia says:

    Nick frost is the best!!! Loved every minute of this podcast.

  18. Louie says:

    Do they discuss his role in the Doctor Who Christmas Special? Or was this before that was announced?

  19. JustinHoskie says:

    Nick Frost? Matt Mira? Fleshlights? Sign me up!
    Also, quickly, for anyone who’s interested, I’m working on an article on lost Nerdist stuffs. Things like podcasts or videos that were never released or got released then got pulled. (Think Shitzy the Moose or Mira’s first Indoor Kids.) I have a few more things I need to dd, but I know there’s alot of live shows not accounted for, so let me know of anything I’m missing.
    (I’m not 100% sure of the rules of the Wiki, but tit seems to me like only people who create an article is allowed to edit it? At least that’s what I’ve been noticing. Let me know here or in the article’s comments what I’m missing.)
