Adam once considered himself fluent in Spanish. Ben and Andrew, not at all. But that doesn't mean all three of our intrepid Grawlix heroes can't use a week-long refresher course on the second most commonly spoken language in the US. Join them on un viaje hispanohablante!  Featuring a thirteen-year-old standup clip from the well-traveled travieso Adam Cayton-Holland and a much more recent clip from Denver darling Christie Buchele!

Setting out to answer that age-old question, "does weed make you more creative?" Andrew, Adam and Ben celebrate that oh-so-Colorado holiday of 4/20 by saxing a few daggers and then taking creativity tests administered by Producer Ron.

All Apologies

2021-03-2301:01:42

We've all got moments we're not proud of. Times we were dicks. Times we were completely wrong in our thinking. Times when we were...too drunk. And sometimes it helps to talk about those moments, and apologize for them. Because, undoubtedly, if more people apologized when they were in the wrong, the world would be a much, much better place. Allow us to get the ball rolling. Featuring standup clips from Dave Ross and Ryan de la Garza! Find bonus videos, clips, and merch on our Patreon page! Talk to us live on the Stereo app!

Remember our first episode? The one where we swore off social media for a week? Well forget all that.

And we invite none-other-than hilarious comic and TikTokker extraordinaire Steph Tolev to show us the ropes and judge our efforts!  LINKS: Steph on TikTok Steph's website—buy her album!

Look there's just no beating around the bush: The Grawlix are a bunch of fucking uggos. We're just butt. And the pandemic ain't helping.

Boi Crazy: Top Gun

Boi Crazy: Top Gun

2021-01-0610:33

In a move that is just so Andrew, he picks the movie, "Top Gun," for his first time at the Boi Crazy wheel. "But Andrew," we said. "They are men, not teen hunks." "Yes," Andrew responded. "But they helped turn us from Bois into men." And there's just no arguing with that. The rest is Boi Crazy history.  Enjoy this free taste, and listen to the the entire episode (with video!) by joining our Patreon at patreon.com/grawlixsaves And never fear, we'll be back next Tuesday with a brand-new episode of The Grawlix Saves the World!

Typically the Grawlix GloboCorp company holiday party is a fête for the ages! We break into one of those storage PODS and smoke cigarettes until we all get headaches, just like in the bible! This year pandemic restrictions have us homebound, so we celebrate the only way we can—with secret present drops for one another in the dead of night, and barely restrained passive aggression. And we invite producer Ron in on the fun! A Christmas miracle!  Featuring standup clips from Mara Wiles and our own Andrew Orvedahl! Coming next week on Patreon: Video of the party!

Remember Tamagotchis? Those egg-like keychains that were actually little digital lives that you had to take care of? The ones that were so popular in the 1990s? The ones that shit and eat and need medicine and stimulation and discipline? The boys sure do! The boys and special guest Maria Thayer (Those Who Can't, Strangers With Candy, Forgetting Sarah Marshall), just spent a week raising them! What fun! Beeping, kitschy, insufferable fun!

Cannonball Scoot

It was Gandhi who said, "If you hate something, try it, and maybe your attitude will change." And even though we just invented that quote for Gandhi, it feels right in his wheelhouse. All this to say, Andrew, Adam and Ben put aside their hatred of e-scooters and try living as the Vape-Bro half lives, in a free-for-all scooter race through the streets of downtown Denver. It's all very, very stupid.  Featuring standup comedy clips from Colorado's own Eeland Stribling and a deep cut from friend-of-the-pod Ian Karmel!  Learn more about your ad choices.
