Pick of the Day: Return of Who Wants $2.69? with Martin Urbano 3/28
Martin Urbano has been at the helm of the best game show in the live-stream era of comedy, Who Wants $2.69. The very timely and sharply written trivia and the novel prize of $2.69 has been keeping us and plenty of other folks get through another hour of lockdown wherever we are.
Urbano took a hiatus over the last month, which, among so many other things, has made so much of March very, very hard to get through. Yet, fret not, as the second season of Who Wants $2.69 is on the horizon, specifically this coming Monday at 5PM PT/8PM ET at its home, Planet Scum.
Whether you’re a loyal follower of the best game show in virtual comedy or not, you should get ready for this Monday, which is set to be a “surprise bloodbath” edition of Who Wants $2.69.
There Will Be a Marathon of Chris Gethard’s Failed Comedy Central Series “Big Lake” for Charity
The archives are definitely being cleaned out while quarantine continues. So many artists of all ilks have been digging through their past works and sharing pieces that have been rarely seen or not seen whatsoever.
This Sunday, The George Lucas Talk Show will be airing Big Lake, the incredibly short lived sitcom on Comedy Central that was supposed to be Chris Gethard’s big debut as a TV star. Connor Ratliff, Griffin Newman, and Patrick Cotnoir of TGLTS have managed to dig up all 10 episodes and will binging them on a marathon this Sunday on Gethard’s digital comedy network Planet Scum as well as talking to cast and creators, no less. For those that miss the days of the old school The Chris Gethard Show, this Sunday afternoon will be for you.
Of this event, Gethard comments, “Up until now, the episodes have been notoriously hard to find. I have no idea how the gang obtained them, let alone how they are distributing. I do know for a fact they tried to upload them to a porn website and they were removed for copyright violation. Big Lake: the show so bad even pornographers won’t trifle with it.”
Also, this Big Lake marathon will be raising money for water.org to bring access to clear water around the world. Tune in at 12PM PT/3PM ET at Planet Scum to join in on the binge watching and inevitable shenanigans at Gethard’s expense.
