More credits and more Muppet mayhem in the theater. Plus a special moment between Miss Piggy and Kermit.

A rainbow appears through the ceiling and the largest gathering of Muppets ever appears to finish the song.
Live from Sak Comedy Lab and recorded on Feb. 15th, 2018, Amanda and Emily discuss break ups. Perfect for a post VD podcast. And the stories from the audience are epic!
The Greg Kihn classic, Weird Al style. The song that both Al Yankovic and Merv Griffin credit for the return of the tv game show Jeopardy. Also, Steve and Charlie also accidentally start a feud.

Another original from Weird Al in the same vein as Slime Creatures from Outer Space. From the UHF soundtrack. Also, as normal, we tangent on to Pizza Hut and Fresh Of The Boat.
