Comedian and Chappelle Show co-creator, Neal Brennan, comes to the calming shores on today’s Sklarbro Country! The guys start by talking about Donte’ Stallworth crashing a hot air ballon into a power line, Stevan Segal and Vladimir Putin finally joining forces, and why we need to bring back the Russia vs US rivalry.
