Covino & Rich— Wednesday, 2/7/18


Tom Papa – promoting his new book “Your Dad Stole My Rake”

Show Topics

  • It’s day 3 of Rich’s new lifestyle, and the “Dad Bod to Rad Bod” challenge may already be over. He went out last night for tacos and margaritas with Covino, but claims that he is using it as his cheat day. Can you really claim your “cheat day” three days into a new diet though? They were at a Mexican restaurant in Sherman Oaks and ran into Shannon Gunz, had a few sugary margaritas, too many chips and guacamole, and now the dad bod challenge is in jeopardy.


  • Rich was on a commercial shoot the other day in Downtown LA and had to drive a hour to get there. When he arrivied he was supposed to be in a tailgate scene, but the costume people kept messing up the outfit by making him look a little gay. At the end of a 40 minute fitting session he ended up in a football jersey and a hoodie, which he could’ve told them from the start. On his way back from the shoot, he was involved in a minor accident though, and now he has to deal with the hassle of insurance companies and getting his car fixed.
  • Tom Papa stops by to talk about a new book he is promoting, but really he’s here to tell us that he is a loyal listener. He heard Covino’s story of the douche in the car yesterday, and has some wise words for him as well as a theory on how to handle the situation further. He talks about relationships with other comedians, what it was like getting started with people like Jim Gaffigan, and what it’s like being friends with some of the biggest names in comedy.
  • Father-Daughter dances are the newest trend to come under fire from the Political Correctness movement. In NY an elementary school has cancelled its dance because of a new rule about gender roles, and it has people infuriated. How can you cancel the tradition, instead you should just modify it and allow others like uncles or moms to come too. This also goes along with a new theory Rich has, about the next type of “shaming” that will come out. Preference Shaming, where people are shamed for their preference in a specific race, ethnicity, or body type, is his new idea, and honestly it could happen. People are so overly sensitive nowadays that they will hate on anything they can.
