We begin the second year of Sklarbro Country with the most relevant and important topic concerning sports: Which players should and shouldn’t be made into bobbleheads? It’s an important issue and thankfully we have Paul Scheer on the show to help us figure it out. In addition to discussing Human Giant and The League, we get to the bottom of the phenomenon of homeless joke theft and Paul uses his knowledge of MTV to help us understand Jay Cutler and Kristin Cavallari’s relationship. Also in the studio is Kevin Seccia who reads a passage from his hilarious new book Punching Tom Hanks. Music is courtesy of Langhorne Slim & The Law who not only play beautifully, but offer up their own opinions on Deputy Butterbean. San Francisco fans, don’t forget to pick up tickets to see The Sklar Brothers this weekend at the Punch Line Comedy Club!
