EP. 332 — Munchies LIVE!

Paul, Jason, and June dive into the 1987 Gremlins knockoff Munchies. LIVE from the Warner Theatre in D.C., the crew discuss using comedy props for sex toys, Dude’s tragic story, evil Harvey Korman looking exactly like the “My Pillow” guy, and why Melvis is the MVP of the movie. Plus, the audience Q&A brings out a Space Lawyer, drunk Fry Guys, and the thought-provoking question, “Are the Munchies against Apartheid?”
