Steven and Matt find themselves slightly richer as Tom and Don have a wallet flexing match.
…It was late one evening back in the winter of 2011 when after sharing a warm case of Guinness, Steven and Charlie mused about their overall discontent with the diminishing quality of work in their industry and their growing desire to lend themselves to a greater cause. Steven revealed that he was toying with the idea of returning to his roots as a writer. He was considering blowing the dust off a script that he began writing back in 2003 that was to be a follow up to his award winning short film based on his grandfather’s experience as a POW during WWII, but that his acting career had since taken priority. The script would follow soldiers returning home from war during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom and explore the psychological repercussions of combat life and the collateral damage on the civilian world. Steven suggested that in order to continue to write a genuine and authentic piece, he would need to go directly to the source – the soldiers, doctors, veterans, families – themselves – and research and develop on a grass roots level. He also revealed that there was a strong supporting role of a British soldier whom he secretly had Charlie in mind to play. Charlie upped the ante by suggesting that the two garner corporate sponsorship to help fund their collective endeavor and agreed to join him on the journey.
Live and in studio, the gang talks with Rocco about golf for a very long time.
Rocco Anthony Mediate is a professional golfer who has won six times on the PGA Tour. Mediate has been featured in the top 20 of the Official World Golf Ranking and considered to be one of the best putters in golf. His best finish in a major championship was a second place showing at the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines South Course. Tied with Tiger Woods at -1 after regular tournament play, then tied again at even par through the 18 hole playoff, Woods finally bested Mediate on the first hole (hole #7) of sudden death, the 91st hole of the tournament. It was only the third time a U.S. Open playoff had gone to sudden death. Mediate’s performance gained him 111 spots in the world golf rankings, moving him from 158th to 47th place.
Like rap? Then you aren’t Tom and will love this episode.

His feature documentary directorial debut, Raw Deal: A Question of Consent, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2001, making him one of the youngest directors in Sundance history. Examining the alleged rape of an exotic dancer at a fraternity house at the University of Florida, the film utilized extensive clips from videotape footage of the alleged assault. Considered by critics to be “one of the most controversial films of the modern day” and “one of the most compelling pieces of non-fiction ever produced,”. Raw Deal has been seen all over the world.
Even though the room was 3/4 white, it was Black Sunday anyway why not. Starring Phillip Wise.
This episode had two comedians on at once. Tom comprises the bulk of the episode anyway.
Described by many as “energetically laid -back,” Jeff Capri is one of very few second generation comics working today. Jeff’s observational comedic palette takes a different direction than his father’s classic Catskill style. Jeff covers everything from pop-culture, biographical and political twists as well as a silly pun or two. The Los Angeles Times calls him “…consistently fun, spontaneous, smart and witty.” With over fifteen years as a world traveled stand-up comedian, Jeff has worked a wide variety of audiences. Ranging from national television, headlining comedy club chains, cruise lines, numerous military tours, (including Iraq/Afghanistan) and a favorite at collages and corporate events. He has even preformed at a nudist colony! (Fully clothed.)
