The sweet dulcet tones of Never Not Funny’s Matt Belknap are all over today’s Sklarbro County! Matt takes us through how ASpecialThing, an online message board he created originally for Tenacious D fans became a hub for comedy fans to connect with each other, how his role on Jimmy Pardo’s podcast Never Not Funny has evolved over the years, and gives us the info on the 5th Annual Pardcast-a-thon. As always, Daniel Van Kirk is here to bring us crazy stories that involve a grocery store melee between groups of women, a man who installs a middle finger statue after buying the house next to his ex-wife, and a drunk man who wakes up to find himself inside a body bag at a morgue. Later, Steven Seagal drops by to respond to Jean-Claude Van Damme’s viral epic split stunt. Make sure to check out Daniel Van Kirk’s NFL column over at cover32.com and don’t forget that you can now get your tickets for the Sklar Bros one-hour special tapings at the Majestic Theatre in Madison, WI. Also, the brand new Sklarbro County shirt is available in the Earwolf store just in time for the holidays!

The three discuss what “I’m Dying Up Here” gets right about the comedy world. Erik talks about how he got his courtside season tickets, what it’s like having players actually hear what you’re yelling, and what the Clippers need to do to take it to the next level. Then the discussion turns to the NBA Finals, how close in talent the Warriors and Cavs truly are, and how NBA player contracts should work. All three agree college athletes should be compensated, and debate the best way to do it. On Quick Hits: the Austin Rivers/Big Baby beef, pro athletes living in apartments, and Mr. Met’s fingers.
