S2.EP11 - Sean Conroy with music from Modern Man

Sean Conroy is a is a well-respected comedy writer, improvisor & stand-up performer who's work has appeared on Comedy Central, MTV, Adult Swim and Spike TV. He is also a regular performer in the the Upright Citizens Brigade improv show, ASSCAT, as well as the host of one of the funniest podcasts in existence, The Long Shot. During our hour-long interview, Sean opens up about the inner workings of his podcast and the unique personalities of his co-hosts. We also discuss, in no particular order: the all-time greatness of HBO's 'The Wire', memories of Bill Hicks, the appropriateness of social commentary within comedy, the short-lived sitcom 'Players', surviving the wrath of Hollywood and much more. Music for this episode is provided by Washington, D.C.'s Modern Man. We proudly share 2 songs from their release, 'The Almost EP'. For more about Sean's podcast, check out www.thelongshotpodcast.com.

  • on that show other then Hee Haw and Hooooooooudy! ) Because today is Thanksgiving, I was reminded of WKRP in Cincinnati and the gut bnuitsg Turkeys Away episode. I have an unholy love for Archer. (How you say, Wah wah ?) I agree with the point of playing satire straight. Some of the best comedy I've seen and done happens when the people perform it just commit fully to the premise and trust the audience to be able to find the comedy in it. I think that's one reason Bill Murry can still pull off a lot of the same schtick from early in his carrier, we always completely inhabited that kind of, persona as if that's just how he was. Don't get me wrong, I love and respect Chevy Chase, but I don't think he quite had that until more recently Or maybe I'm just talking through my hat. (Which I knit myself.)I'm not saying I can't do adorable anime girl voice, I'm saying I WON'T.

  • Spana, of course the sky won't fall foeervr once the filter's switched off as a result the system capacity will expand nicely to cope with the threat of DDOS attacks as normal.It will still be wasted time (and money) for many people and businesses, and it still won't block illegal porn.Perhaps this analogy might get through to you: Conroy's HTTP-only filter is like only blocking illegal pictures on billboards without inspecting what's available in bookshops, let alone what people are sending each other in the mail or passing to each other around their neighbourhoods. It's emperor's-new-clothes-don't-look-at-the-man-behind-the-curtain stuff. Again, what's the good of a false sense of security other than purely political grandstanding or misdirection about the true use of the filter?
