Episode 576: Pootie Tang (2001) Guest Co-Hosts: Mike McGranahan, Josh Stewart

It's time to sine your pitty on the running kine with our episode all about Pootie Tang (2001). Written and directed by (rightfully) disgraced comedian Louis C.K., the film stars Lance Crouther as the titular Mr. Tang, a performer, poet, and potter who learns a lesson about himself and the evil corporate empire run by Dick Lecter (Robert Vaughn).

Mike McGranahan and Josh Stewart join Mike to discuss this maligned masterpiece. Sa da tay!

  1. Here an old, regular listner from Spain. Did you stop uploading your episodes in Ivoox? I have that app and i don't get any since two months ago.

    1. The redirect that was put in place went away. I added the show again to iVoox since I can't figure out how to combine the two or update the feed.

    2. Wow i just saw it, thanks a lot. Ivoox's app is quite messy, so i'm not surprise.

  2. There was a time when my taste was impeccable enough, and my time was valuable enough to me that I listened to the Scary Movie 3 commentary. I remember David Zucker said he included the Pootie Tang references as a kind of in-joke because he was in a poker group with "the director"; as far as I recall he didn't mention Louis C.K. by name, nor would I have known who that was at the time.
