This show is pretty self-explanatory. Basically, if the title includes the word "Interview" and then a proper name, you can pretty much bet that's exactly what you're going to get. In this day and age, most everything requires a "description." We don't believe in that. Just call us old school. It might also be one of our many special features or bonus shows. Wouldn't a perfect description of it sort of ruins the surprise of releasing a new and special show for you? Or we might just be being completely lazy - you'll never know. We hope that you enjoy the show and thanks, as always, for the love and support! - t&d

Oh man. What a fun day.

D, coming at you from my recliner with vinyl blasting in the background. Tonight we just got started and we threw on a little “Culture Club” and Man is dancing like a mad baby to it! It’s hilarious!

Thanks to all of the folks that stopped by the show today. Much love to the folks over at The Orlando Weekly for getting us a fantastic interview with Joey Chestnut and Miki Sudo. Both are going to be at the Orlando Chili Cookoff this Saturday and we were more than pleased to have them into the studio to shoot it! Great folks and make sure you head out to hang with them this weekend at the Orlando Chili Cookoff. It’s also DapTone Records week on the show and we have music from only DapTone Record artists. We’re going to be able to do more and more of this as the show goes on. Our show assistant Lee has been getting us permission to play great bands on great record labels. We’re just trying to make things better and better for you.

Thanks to all of you for listening and we hope that you enjoy the show!

Named one of Rolling Stone’s Five Comics to Watch with standout appearances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Conan, The Late Late show, Last Comic Standing, Comedy Central, and Showtime, he’s establishing himself as one of the nation’s favorite stand-ups.
He’s impressed industry insiders by racking up a remarkable number of national competition wins and festival appearances, including winning The Great American Comedy Festival and Sierra Mist’s America’s Next Great Comic Search. He’s also a regular performer at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festivals with several international television performances including The Muppets Gala in Montreal and the Sydney Opera House International Comedy Gala.
He’s often lauded for being a clean comedian, although his audiences span a broad spectrum. One review said, “His stories and delivery are so funny, it doesn’t even cross your mind that he works completely clean. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. When he talks about his experience skydiving or taking a hot-air-balloon ride, you’re too busy laughing to notice he’s not like the others.” (from Vancouver Georgia Straight “For Comic Ryan Hamilton Getting Clean Laughs Just Comes Naturally”)
Growing up in Idaho and making his home in New York City he’s far from his small-town roots, but the contrast suits him. He’s currently headlining comedy clubs across the country building a following of enthusiastic fans.

Hey there gang!

We're so happy to be back with you again for another "A Mediocre Time with Tom and Dan." Trust me when I tell you that this is going to be a huge year for us. There are tons of new things planned and all of them will make our show just that much better! (Look for the expansion of AGGTM and we might even do a few changes to ACT. You never really know! Since this is our brand, some times it's crazy to remember that we can do whatever the hell we want to do! We forget that at times.)

For those of you that are in the market for some new T&D gear, we got you! There are two new shirts on the site; one of them that is the extremely limited "Walk The Beers" shirt and the other is our newest BDM Official design from our friends at The Danger Brain. Last I checked, the WTB shirt is selling fairly quickly and I don't think that this is one that we're going to reorder. Consider this a Tom and Dan and Eddie "one off" and when they're gone - THEY'RE GONE!

On this week's show:

-Dan Cummins calls in

-Dan Cummins' adult kid’s book “Daddy Bear”

-“Clean the garage out”

-Thumbs and D ratio

-Bore it out

-#SquirtHappens

-Kratom

-Tom’s pickle

Thanks as always for joining us for the show - whether it's live or on the podcast. We can't wait to bring you guys more and more cool show, fun events, cruises, and all of the other stuff that pops into our "bad at business" minds! I know that many of you are going to be out at Disney's Animal Kingdom this Sunday. I will be out there but not at AK - I'm taking Mai for a play date at MK but if me and the gals get the time, we're going to try and pop over to see you all!

Have a fantastic weekend and we'll see you next week!

Hey gang,

Dan here and this time I'm coming at you from "AMT Studio 3." Going through a few last minute things to get ready for tonight's BDM Winter Event. You know - mics and cables and PA speakers and whatnot. Hopefully, we'll see a good portion of you guys tonight and I think we're going to have a really good time! I'm mega-excited about it! 

Me, Tom and his wife all had the chance to sit down for dinner with Dan Cummins last night. Such a great guy! I'm almost positive that we kept him out WAY later than he wanted to be but it was really fun to catch up and talk shop with another guy who seemingly has the podcast bug and is dedicated to attempting to make it a profession. If you haven't already, please check out Dan's podcast "Time Suck." You can find it on iTunes and all of the normal places. It's a great show. Speaking of shows...

On this week's show:

-Tom’s high

-Tom and Dan’s UCF trip

-Action Park

-Rope slide

-Meanings of names

-Tom Vann the Marshmun

-Dan Cummins is here!

-Smugglers freak out

-Flat Earth

-Judge Peter Doody

So there you go! We had a blast and apologies for the lack of footnotes. As with most weeks when we have an event, we just plain ran out of time. Much like the robot told you, I'll tack it on next weeks for you. All of these guys were local Orlando band who rule. Sorry, again and we'll see you tonight, or next week!
