It’s the middle of the week, and we’ve got a shot in the arm to get you ready to start the second half… We’re mixing metaphors here, but you get what I’m saying, IT’S THE PLAYBOY MORNING SHOW, BABY!!
Ahem. So. We started the show this particular morning by reading the first series in our “Apology Notes” segments, where our lovely ladies write their very own “sorrys” to people and inanimate objects in their lives. Sometimes its nice to just to hear it, you know?
We then talked via Skype with funnyman, podcaster, and author of the new book, “Rubber Balls and Liquor,” Gilbert Gottfried. He proved why he’s the most daring comedian out there today, and helped supplement his article in our July/August issue of Playboy on being part of the “Apology Epidemic.” To continue on the theme of offering condolences, we played a game called “Sorry/Not Sorry” where Gilbert gave advice on when to apologize based on hypothetical situations. Spoiler alert: almost never, except when it costs Gilbert himself some money.
We took a break and then welcomed in Sterling “Steelo” Brim, from the MTV show “Ridiculousness,” which has just started its 5th season. Steelo talked about how he got his start in radio, and the real secret to what makes a video of somebody getting hurt funny.
To round out the show, we put Steelo’s skills as a commentator to the test, by playing “What Happens Next?” Playmates of a decade ago edition. 10 years doesn’t seem like a long time ago until you check out some of our Playmate videos and realize that we were all a little bit more young and naive back then… That’s the only way to explain the silliness that exists within.
