Chris: You know what? I’m going to call you out Tim. I think you do know what you want to do, I think you don’t want to admit it on the air, I think you probably have something in your heart that you love to do and you’re too scared to admit that you want to do it. And my advice to you is: you…
TCGS returns to South by Southwest for the third time this year, and to be honest I’m feeling some pressure. Our first year we did a show on the tech trade room floor that ended with The Human Fish leading a parade of people throughout the whole facility while everyone sang “The Human Fish Loves Cock”. Our second year, we played a horrific game of pin the tail on the donkey that ended with me blindfolde on Sixth Street while strangers screamed in my face and threatened me.
Luckily, I think we’ve come up with an idea that might just top them all.
On the evening of Wednesday, March 12th at 6PM, I, Chris Gethard will host a live edition of TCGS at Esther’s Follies right on 6th Street. During that show, we will celebrate Texas in our own unique way. On that evening, we will Remember the A La Mode. On that evening, I will be turned into a human sundae.
I will host the show while in my underwear and sitting in a child sized swimming pool. Throughout the evening, the other core cast members of TCGS will get opinions from you, the audience, on what ingredients should be added to this human/ice cream mixture. At the end of the evening, everyone in the audience will be given a spoon and encouraged to come sample the Human Sundae as we Remember the A La Mode.

I was honored to write a bunch of sketch advice for the UCB blog. I was also honored to be able to shoehorn in a reference to Eagle Eye Cherry.
Here’s some great writing advice from TCGS head writer Dru Johnston!

Murf Vs. Gimghoul is currently being submitted to festivals. Please “like” it, leave comments, blah blah blah.
And if you know of any festivals looking for submissions, hit us up!
The Human Fish himself, David Bluvband, sits in with Riley and Griffin this week to talk about the amazing Lookin’ At Dicks For An Hour episode, some of the show’s best callers and the history of his breakout character. Also, the gang compares the world of TCGS with Pokemon.
We have a hint for you: Griffin and Riley interview the Horse/Bee/Hintmaster himself!
We recap the infamous Hintmaster show and the fictional character takeover story arc. We talk about the plethora of TTCGS spinoff podcasts. We tell stories from the SF live show. We delve into discussion about Dru’s unique sense of humor. We compare the TCGS cast to the 2013 Seattle Seahawks!
