Andy Daly. Booby Booby.

No show notes from Garon-substitute Tony Thaxton. Who know, they might show up! Or I might get time to do my own notes. Or a fan might want to do them. You can even listen to the episode right here on this page and make your own set of notes.

Rachel Quaintance

Rachel Quaintance

We have two whole sets of show notes! I did a set because I didn’t get any from Jay, but then after I did mine, Jay’s showed up, courtesy of Matt Belknap. So enjoy the most notes ever for an episode of Never Not Funny. Rachel is worthy of them! Jay’s notes follow mine below:

All notes and editing by Darryl Asher, because Rachel is awesome and deserves to have notes of her appearance available for posterity, despite the fact that she used to think my name was Ronald

Jimmy: “I don’t need Johnny Porkchop talking to Darryl Asher in the chat room while I’m trying to figure out if Darek Jeter is still in the league”

(Don’t worry, Jimmy. Besides hearing you talk about it, Darryl Asher has ZERO interest in fantasy baseball!)

aspecialthing.com is probably now a ghost town. (I admit to not having logged in there in years). Facebook and Twitter have taken over what AST used to do.

Jon Hamm with a ham sandwich.

Jon Hamm with a ham sandwich.

In studio notes by NO ONE because Tony Thaxton sat in for Garon and I have no notes from him. Tony Thaxton: incredible drummer. Terrible Never Not Funny note-taker. If I have time and/or interest, I (Darryl) might eventually do the show notes for this episode.

Meanwhile, enjoy this photo of Jon Hamm holding a ham sandwich.

Jimmy talks about the Family Guy seen where Stewie beats the hell out of Brian when he doesn’t get his money. Jimmy full of thievery today.

New Rule: Sick stay home. Jimmy blaming me! We’re in a bomb shelter. No air flow.

I always laugh at an aids joke.

Stay home if you are sick! Let’s keep the child home? Eliot’s got Joseph on back-up in case he got sicks.

The Citrin’s were great! He, Conan, and at the improv!

05 – Oliver was at Conan and was critiquing Jimmy to Danielle. Jimmy says Oliver is getting out of his shyness and is eating up the attention now. He gave a big wave at Conan.

The man upstairs keeps his eye on all of us. Eliot agrees.

Jimmy’s seatbelt alarm reminds him of Look Down, every day.

00 – Hello! 1524! The Christmas eve! Get those gifts under those trees parents!

We got some guests in from Bonobos.com. Not really.

The Citrins are with us today! Marc and Ethan. They won the Conan Meet and Greets. They’re in from New York.

I’m on the mend! Matt’s hair is product free today.

Some scheduling chat. We’ll work it out off the air.

05 – Jimmy saw Eliot on a date at his comedy show. Took a date to see Daddy.

Some celebs showed up. Graham, Tony Thaxton, Alan Havey, and Eliot. Eliot got the best response when Jimmy gave some shout-outs. He got an upswell of applause!

Jimmy recounts the show on Saturday.

Ethan is a computer science major, currently working with his Father who is an Attorney. He handles malpractice suits for doctors.

Jimmy wants some info on who he should sue in terms of his unnecessary knee surgery.

Mr. Citrin is like a lawyer/Doctor in one!

Jimmy asks if he’s ever dealt with a waking on the surgery table situation. Feel and see and hear everything but no one knowing.

He only works for the doctors.

Jimmy asks Ethan what he does with his dad. He files stuff at courthouses, and requests medical records.

10 – Fun with words guys!

Ethan’s got a girlfriend named Amanda, like Boston sang about in the 80s. They’ve been together for 1 ½. Ethan’s 24.
Marc is 56.
Jimmy saw Paddington. He’s going Billy Idol. Calls it Phenomenal! Charming is the best word to use for it.

Eliot is talking for some reason. Jimmy’s furious and will open him up with a scalpel (Scapel) and try to have Eliot sue him.

What’s the better medicine? Music or Laughter?

Jimmy saw Kevin Pollack’s movie over the weekend. Misery Loves Comedy – 

Jimmy joined Matt at Disneyland to do the Star Wars 10K.

15 – Jimmy used Elise’s “bib” for the run. If he had hurt himself he’d have no causeation (or crustacean as jimmy heard).

Jimmy and Matt talk about the run at Disneyland.

The corrals were very important apparently. Matt calls it a 10k meets comic-con. Some people had no business

Grabbed our guest! John Ross Bowie!!

Eliot annoys Jimmy as soon as the show starts

Jimmy apologizes for not being sensitive about Eliot’s mother

“Go fuck yourself if you think I’m insensitive”

No Garon due to illness, and not enough time OR INTEREST to get Darryl Asher

I  don't know if this count as a shout-out or a shit-on. Half and half I guess.
