The prophecy has been fulfilled. The Flop House got to sit down and discuss a bad movie with the godfather of "bad movie comedy" as a genre, Joel Hodgson, as well as Matt McGinnis, who works with Joel on a little show you may know as Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return -- and they would like to return AGAIN -- this time beholden to no network -- so please check out their just-announced Kickstarter for all-new episodes of MST3K! ...but also please enjoy us trying to puzzle our way through the truly puzzling "mod superspy becomes caveman-styled new messiah" movie, The Final Programme.Wikipedia entry for The Final Programme.Movies recommended in this episode:The SpongeBob Squarepants MovieSlaxxBetween the Lines
Dan McCoy is the co-host and co-creator of The Flop House, a podcast we kinda like — fans of bad movies, witty banter, and friends dunking on each other will agree. Dan has also won two more Emmys than most of us, as a writer for The Daily Show With Trevor Noah. And his Twitter account is
Starting in Oakland, moving to Portland, now currently living in L.A, Amy Miller is one of the hardest working comics out there. Amy has won Portland’s Funniest, appeared on The Adam Carolla Show, NPR, Doug Loves Movies and her own “Comedy Central Presents...”Amy and I met years ago in Portland, where a snowstorm canceled half of our shows with Tom Segura. We share a bunch of fun stories from that week and have a great comedy chat covering everything from performing in laundry mats to proper green room etiquette and not being a complete dickbag in this industry.Pat House is a nationally-touring comedian based out of Philadelphia. A regular performer in comedy clubs, casinos, and theaters all over the country, Pat has been a choice opener for Sebastian Maniscalco, Tom Segura, and Dan Cummins. He recorded his first album Biggest Thing in 2013, and his latest album Heard Enough Yesterday, hit #1 on the iTunes comedy charts. Both can be heard on iTunes, Amazon, and Pandora.Amy Miller was one of Comedy Central’s “Up Next” comics for 2018, and was a breakout favorite in Season 9 of Last Comic Standing. Her Comedy Central Presents set has been viewed over 3 million times on Youtube and Facebook. She was also a featured comic on Viceland's Flophouse. On Last Comic Standing, Keenen Ivory Wayans said she had one of the “fiercest jokes he had ever heard.” Originally from the East Bay, Amy found her comedy chops in Oakland and is still a regular at the SF Punch Line and Cobb’s Comedy Club. Her material is personal, political, and 100% authentic. The Laugh Button says “She found a wildly creative way to find empowerment while simultaneously sparking laughter” and Courting Comedy says “Miller juxtaposes an unassuming demeanor with unflinching assurance.” After a move to Portland in 2012, Amy quickly rose to the top of the Pacific Northwest comedy scene, winning Portland’s Funniest in Helium's 2015 contest, as well as being voted Portland’s Funniest Comedian for 2013 and 2015 in the Willamette Week. She was the first woman to win each position and the only one to win all three. Amy’s debut album Solid Gold is available on Kill Rock Stars, and was named one of the top 10 comedy albums of 2016 by the Interrobang. You may have also seen Amy on Viceland or heard her on Sirius XM, NPR, Doug Loves Movies, The Adam Carolla Show, The Bennington Show, Put Your Hands Together, All Fantasy Everything, Keith and the Girl, or her own podcast "Who's Your God?." Amy is a nationally touring festival and comedy club headliner, and she has performed in the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, SxSW, the High Plains Comedy Fest, Laughing Skull, Big Sky, San Francisco Sketchfest, the Bumbershoot Festival and more.

Elliott Kalan has made a career for himself out of checking items off the bucket list he made for himself when he was 14, which is a damn fine way to go through life, if you ask us.You may know him as the head writer of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return, which Robb mortgaged his house to Kickstart, or his 12-year run as writer and head writer of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.He's written a bunch of Spider-Man comics, including Spider-Man & the X-Men, which includes what is probably the second-most-memed comics panel of the last decade.He's been co-hosting bad-movie podcast The Flop House since 2007, long before the federal government made co-hosting a bad-movie podcast compulsory for men aged 18-25. And he co-hosted a 13-episode podcast about I, Claudius called (wait for it) I, Podivs with fellow MBTM alumnus John Hodgman.BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, he has written two fantastic kids' picture books: Horse Meets Dog (which was the first book Bryan's son was able to read all by himself) and Sharko and Hippo, out now for your holiday purchasing pleasure.Bottom line: Elliott is great. Please make the two hours he wasted doing this show with us worth his while by consuming all his media.Stories Covered In Detail This Episode:Strange Tales #161: “The Second Doom” - written and drawn by Jim SterankoTales of Suspense #94: “If This Be… MODOK!” - written by Stan Lee, art by Jack Kirby w/Joe SinnottFantastic Four #67: “When Opens the Cocoon” - written by Stan Lee, art by Jack Kirby w/Joe SinnottAmazing Spider-Man #53: “Enter: Dr. Octopus” - written by Stan Lee, art by John Romita w/”Mickey Demeo” (Mike Esposito)Complete List of Comics Published This Month (courtesy of mikesamazingworld.com): Amazing Spider-Man #53, Avengers #44, Avengers Annual #1, Daredevil #32, Fantastic Four #67, Not Brand Echh #3, Sgt.

Hi everyone. Was digging through the archives to see if there was anything we could release today, because it seems like maybe people could use a distraction right now.Anyway, found this old recording of the audio from one of our earliest live shows, way back in 2013, where we riffed over the movie Bratz, and decided to make it public (there are MP3s floating around, but we never put it on the main feed).In the past we were worried that you could hear the audio to the movie in the background, for copyright reasons (and also you'll have to sync this pretty well to the movie to hear us without getting a quiet echo). But you know what? It seems unlikely anyone cares, and if we get complaints, we'll take it down. For now, enjoy this surprise, and try to keep from torturing yourself with anxiety. The show was an early one, and riff shows are hard, so this might not be the absolute -best-, but Bratz is on Netflix right now if you wanna put us on and turn off your brain for a while.Be strong. Take care of yourselves.
EPISODE 11: Goofin’ with Christie Buchele! Christie has made a name for herself by sharing the heart-wrenching and hilarious realities of being a woman with a disability.

Christie has performed at the Crom Comedy Festival in Omaha, Nebraska, Denver's own High Plains Comedy Festival, Hell Yes Fest, and Limestone Comedy Festival.
2020 may be miserable, but it's STILL HALLOWEEN DAMN IT. So we assembled a crack team of the Flop House gang, plus comedy writers Mike Reiss and Ken Keeler (who, between them, are responsible for much of the greatness of The Simpsons, The Critic, and Futurama) to discuss the most important and timely issue possible -- the 1962 novelty hit, The Monster Mash.Also, if you're reading this on the day of release, 10/31, you still have until midnight to donate to charity and be entered in our raffle to win exclusive Flop House merch!

Longtime listeners of The Next Picture Show likely have at least passing familiarity with THE FALL via the many, many mentions it’s received over the years from co-host Tasha Robinson, one of the foremost advocates of Tarsem Singh’s hard-to-find, cultishly adored 2008 film. Joining her in that small but mighty fandom is Elliott Kalan, Emmy-winning comedy writer and co-host of THE FLOP HOUSE podcast, where he has shared Tasha’s experience of singing THE FALL’s praises to his bemused co-hosts. So in honor of… well, nothing, really, other than a shared appreciation of an obscure and highly discussable film, Keith Phipps convened Elliott and Tasha to discuss this extremely weird masterpiece, how its highly unusual filming circumstances resulted in a singular film, and why it’s ultimately a movie that’s “more felt than thought.” Learn more about your ad choices.

Our guest this week is Gillian Flynn, bestselling author of Gone Girl, Sharp Objects, and Dark Places, showrunner for Amazon's Utopia, screenwriter of Widows and adaptations of her own work, winner of the Edgar Award, and BAFTA nominee. We have no idea why she agreed to do this either.But we're happy she did, because for our second and final SHOCKTOBER 2020 movie, our horror-aficionado guest picked Uninvited, and it was amazing! (to be clear, this is not THE Uninvited from 2009, which The Flop House already covered, or, for that matter, The Uninvited from 1944, about ghosts and Ray Milland. This is the 1987 direct-to-video one about the mutant killer house cat).Also! If you're listening on the day of release TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT (6PDT/9EDT) for our YouTube livestream version of our touring show! We'll be doing presentations, talking Exorcist II, taking questions from Twitter, and raising money for charity!

Saluton estas mi, Tyson Saner. Welcome to this week's episode of Succotash Shut-In: The Soundcast Stimulus Package. (In case you missed Epi223, it dropped a week ago and was hosted by our other host, Marc Hershon. In that episode he featured clips from a quartet of comedy soundcasts where the hosts talk about movies, specifically How Did This Get Made?, Dad’s Movie Night, The Flop House, and "Who Shot Ya?. You can get it from our homesite - SuccotashShow.com - or Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotifu, Stitcher, or anywhere fine (and not so fine) soundcasts are to be found.) But this is show 224 and I've got clips from Rough Giraffe, Still Loading, and The Dark Weeb. I've also got a reading from our 100% fake sponsor with the 100% real website, TrumPoetry.com, as well as a spot from Henderson's Pants, our O.G. fake sponsor, with a classic commercial for Henderson's Passive Aggressive Pantaloons. By the way, this episode represents a personal milestone as it is the 100th episode that I gathered clips for in one capacity or another since April of 2013, Epi 57 "Boozin' with Bill (Again). Of course this was after the show debuted waaaaaay back in March of 2011 as Succotash, The Comedy Podcast Podcast with full-time host and show creator, the aformentioned Marc Hershon. I'd like to take this little bit here to thank him again for taking me on as an associate producer now almost a decade ago. I appreciate all the positive feedback and acceptance I have recieved over the years. I'm not great at expressing myself. So I will just repeat, Thank You! CLIPS Rough Giraffe Join hosts Mum and Stacey for a comedy trivia podcast full of weird news, unusual facts, and a wonky cat! Our featured clip is from an episode from this past August, and to celebrate Kipper's 15th birthday, Mum and Stacey are talking all about …birthdays! Still LoadingThis show is focused around video games, video game culture and video game history. The clip we've snipped is from August 23, 2020, and is about NINJAS! For the Summer of PS2, this 'sode focuses on Shinobi by Sega. Kade Call from the Gaming Memories podcast joins Josh Covel to talk about the first 3D entry in the classic Sega series. They talk all about the game and even find time to reminisce on the 3 ninjas movies. (I chose this clip because I was a fan of the arcade game "Shinobi" back when I was significantly younger and, although I do not remember playing "Shinobi" for the PS2, I do appreciate the enthusiasm with which the conversation was had…also, NINJAS! The Dark WeebComedians and weeb-adjacent homies Cody Ziglar & Brodie Reed kick back each week and cover a favorite nerdy pop-culture interest; anime, manga, video games, and everything in between. This week Zig & Brodie are joined by apex nerd, writer & comedian Heather Anne Campbell, and super fan Alexis Qusarano to their love for the mind-bending anime classic, Neon Genesis Evangelion! (I chose this clip because although I have not experienced the subject matter firsthand, I have seen many of the classics such as "Akira", "Fist of the North Star", "Wicked City", "Ghost in the Shell", "Ninja Scroll" and "Princess Mononoke", just to name a few and I AM a fan of Anime in general so… I get the enthusiasm… also, I've been meaning to see "Neon Genesis Evangelion" one of these days…) Yes again, it's another end, my friends. I hope we entertained. I have been listening to soundcasts more and more lately because that's what needs to be done for this sort of show. I'd say that I listen to less soundcasts than I used to but I'm not really sure about that. It's not significantly less… and I only bring it up because I was thinking about how I find shows to listen to and feature on Succotash Shut-In and there are a fair few that I heard of because I'm listening to soundcasts and I hear them mentioned on those soundcasts ,or being advertised somewhere during whatever I happen to be listening to at the time. I also find shows on Twitter. I'm at @revt23 personally and the show is @SuccotashShow in case you happen to be on there… why not say "hi"? We appreciate it when you tell others about us as well…we try to make ourselves easy to find, easy to digest. Thank you for eating us. Thank you for listening. Wear a mask to protect others AND yourself because you may be fine and get thru COVID-19 unscathed but not everyone does. You could spread it to someone who dies from it. That may not legally be murder…but it's starting to feel more and more like it should be at the very least thought of as such if not enforced in the same way. That's just how I feel because I care about you. So, remember to get out and VOTE and remember to Please…Pass The Succotash. — Tyson Saner

Hello, friendo! Or acquaintance-o. Or maybe just first-time-listener-o. Welcome, indeed, to Succotash Shut-In: The Soundcast Stimulus Package. What is a “soundcast”? That’s what we here at Succotash Patch Productions call a “podcast” because maybe you don’t listen to them on an iPod any more, which went out of production a few years ago. I’m your every-other-weekly-host Marc Hershon and this is Episode 223 of our nine and a half year-old show with a slightly new name in honor of COVID-19 and its attendant lockdown. If you missed Epi222, that dropped just last week and was hosted by our other host, Tyson Saner. In that ‘sode he featured clips from a trio of comedy soundcasts: City Mouse Country Mouse, The Bloodybits Horror Show, and Cold Callers Comedy. You can grab it at Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, iHeart Radio, the Laughable app, YouTube, Stitcher, and wherever you normally find your soundcastery. This week’s episode is entitled Revuein’ Some Movie Review ‘Casts. And that’s MOSTLY what I’m going to do. I have a quartet of shows where the hosts talk about movies. Mostly BAD movies because it’s always funnier to riff on crappy films than it is to try to be funny about good movies. But not always, as you’ll hear. My full rack of clips includes excerpts from one that kind of started the genre in the first place, and that’s How Did This Get Made?, along with Dad’s Movie Night, The Flop House, and Who Shot Ya? This episode is brought to you by our long-running sponsor Henderson’s Pants, makers of the new Darkly HalloWear, just in time for this year’s fright festivities! And we are also brought to you by Trumpoetry.com. CLIPS Before we get the clips that match our theme today, we got a submission to our direct upload link yesterday, just as I was locking everything down for this episode. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, we have an open invitation for any comedy podcaster who would like us to feature a clip from their show to get us a three to five minute MP3 clip – not a promo, because promos are for shows that don’t feature clips – and they can get that clip to us simply by clicking over to http://hightail.com/u/Succotash. Include a little blurb about your show, and who the people are we’re listening to, and either Tyson or I will get your clip onto an upcoming episode.) The Jock Doc Podcast Our submitted clip today comes from The Jock Doc Podcast, and features Dr. London Smith as the host. Here’s the note that accompanied the clip: “Here is a clip from the beginning of the first episode of the Jock Doc Podcast, all improvised. I tell people to just give the first episode 5 minutes and they will know whether they will like the podcast.” Well, Doc, that’s fair enough… How Did This Get Made? Let’s start out this revue of movie review soundcasts with a snippet from pretty much the granddaddy of the genre, hosted by Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael, and Jason Mantzoukas, who put some of filmdom’s most unwatchable dreck through the spanking machine. But they do it with love, because they know that no one ever sets out to make a bad movie…it just sort of happens. My featured clip is from an episode from about a month ago, in Spetember, in which they ripped apart The Velocipastor. The synopsis for the movie on IMDB reads: “After losing his parents, a priest travels to China, where he inherits a mysterious ability that allows him to turn into a dinosaur. At first horrified by this new power, a hooker convinces him to use it to fight crime. And ninjas.” Dad’s Movie Night Our second clip of the review theme has a scanty description that goes like this: “Two dads watching movies from our youth and trying to figure out if they hold up, should they be rebooted, and...should we force our kids to eventually watch them.” The dads are Pete and Brian – that’s all I can find on them – no last names, no Twitter accounts, and in their 119th outing they dive into one of my old faves, Tremors, starring Fred Ward and Kevin Bacon. And this is a movie they actually like, BTW, so an exception to that ‘bad movies only’ rule most shows abide by! The Flop House First of all, nice on-brand title for a soundcast that takes a look at crappy movies. It features a triumverate of hosts: Elliott Kalan, Dan McCoy, and Stuart Wellington and they are…you know what? Let me let their homesite blurb lay it out: “They are friends who’ve decided to express that friendship not by doing productive or enjoyable things, but instead by watching critical or commercial flops, and then discussing those terrible movies for you to enjoy in your ear-holes. Although, honestly, most of the time they just talk about random bullshit.” My featured snippet is from their recent Epi323, where they forced themselves to watch Deadly Lessons. Who Shot Ya? Our final clip is a Maximum Fun show featuring “not just a bunch of straight, white dudes”, according to their site. Instead, we are wisked through movie reviews by comedian Ify Nwadiwe, film producer Drea Clark, and film critic Alonso Duralde. We clipped a recent episode where they tucked into Bill And Ted Face The Music, although this segment is more about them flashing back on the two preceding Bill and Ted films. And that is all the show I have for you right now. I hope I am able to offer you a little respite from the Great Weirdness we’re currently all enduring, and hopefully I can turn you on to one or more new soundcasts you’ll go enjoy on your own. You can follow us on Twitter and Instagram. We’ve got a Facebook page. And you can email either me or Tyson Saner with either of our first names AT SuccotashShow.com. Don’t forget to check out Tyson’s upcoming Epi224 and if you’re looking for a show to recommend to friends and/or family that’s kind of a Whitman’s Sampler of comedy soundcast goodness, please remember to pass the Succotash! — Marc Hershon

Guys, we're so excited for our guest this episode. He's a big-time Hollywood gent who's worn many hats -- and to name just a few: he wrote and directed About a Boy. As an actor, he co-starred as "Chuck" in Chuck and Buck. He was one of the producers of The Farewell. The man co-wrote a Star War (Rogue One), for Pete's sake! And, as we never get tired of reminding him, he directed Twilight: New Moon. But up until now, he's been missing one line on his resume -- Flop House guest. I'm sure now he weeps, for he has no worlds left to conquer. Chris Weitz is on this episode! And we're sorry we made him talk about Rambo: Last Blood! Meanwhile the rest of us do some shit. We won't waste your time. Just listen. Wikipedia synopsis of Rambo: Last Blood Movies recommended in this episode: Easter Parade Support the Girls What's Up, Doc? Harakiri
