Is Fantasmas So Good It's Scary?

Josh Gondelman returns to talk about the weird delights of Julio Torres's Fantasmas, plus a Killing It Canon pitch and a rhyming Game Time!

We’re thrilled comedian Josh Gondelman could come back to talk about Fantasmas, the latest show from Los Espookys‘s Julio Torres, which is as hard to describe as it was for us to resist. We talked about everything from fully realized re-imaginings of Alf, to comedy that doesn’t have to prove it’s smarter than you, to begging the universe to let Torres make American Vandal Seasons 3 through 85. Maybe the show’s not for everyone, but it’s okay with that, which is part of its charm. Later, we went Around The Dial with 9-1-1, Rachel Feinstein’s stand-up special Big Guy, and Sarah and Dan’s Justified marathon, and Josh hoped his Killing It Canon presentation would pay off (before 9 PM, of course. Timothy Olyphant won a second time, The Morning Show found a way to lose twice, and Dave was a poet who DID know it in a rhyming edition of Game Time. Put that clear-crayon project aside and have a listen.
