Randy Valerio, who started comedy in Boston, is an LA-based comedian born and raised in Queens, NY. Chase Abel is Boston-based comedian originally hailing from Eritrea, East Africa. The two try to make sense of their lives and the world around them each and every week by sharing crazy ideas, news, stories, and their adventures with their listeners.

Randy kicks off the show giving a recap of his McGreevy’s set (thanks to all for coming out!). The guys get into talking about how much doing cardio sucks - are marathoners crazy? Chase complements Randy on his leisure travel skills. Some how a chat about ice cream leads into a talk about small businesses - they aren’t always “mom and pop” stores like the media and politicians would lead you to believe. Randy tells stories about how his dad would play cold jokes on him and his siblings as little kids. The cookies and cream duo bring the show home going over some current events - a crazy N.C. date rape law and the story of a young woman who got convicted of manslaughter for texting her boyfriend to kill himself.

This week the guys discuss Randy's nerves before a show, going to a Chapelle show in NYC, dating older women and Amazon buying whole foods

After opening the show with some banter on household chores, Randy and Chase get into a rather deep conversation about the double edged sword of selfishness and competitiveness - there are times when being selfish or being competitive are very positive and beneficial in your life but you cannot let those traits steal joy from you. After the philosophy discussion, Randy wanted to have a follow-up discussion with Chase on racism, Bill Maher and the inappropriate comments he made. They guys felt the show was getting to heavy, so they lightened it up with a segment on the NBA and the legacies of sports superstars like Michael Jordan. Jordan’s legacy is so big that it has changed culture and fashion in America and around the world. Next up, the boys did their “Financially Funny” segment of the week. Loyal listener Georgia wrote in and asked for investment recommendations on 401K accounts, which the fellas try to provide. The guys wrap up the show talking about the great time Randy had at a lesbian block party during the Boston Pride parade…Chase thinks he wants in on the next party.

Chase and Randy start the show by reminiscing about the last episode, which was a throwback to October 2016.  Chase was in NYC last week, which reminds Randy of the time Jon Stewart bought him breakfast tequila shots. The guys accidentally stumble into their first Financially Funny segment, where they discuss “opportunity costs” in the context of paying a mortgage vs. paying rent (the value of anything is generally always relative, not absolute!). Interestingly, the Financially Funny segment gets the guys talking about how the opportunity cost concept applies to broader experiences in life - getting a post-secondary education and career choices. Chase re-lives his heroic first week of work at his day job, where he saved a stranger’s life. The conversation segues into a discussion of personal integrity - what would you do if you saw someone in need that nobody else was willing to help? Do you admit when you are wrong? To what standard do you hold people in your life to the same standard of admitting their mistakes/transgressions? The guys wrap up the show with a recount of Randy’s trip to Nantucket, an update on current events (Kathy Griffin, Bill Maher, Trump etc.), and listener emails.
