Straw hot media. M welcome to another episode of behind the shadows, the podcast dedicated to talking all things shadows with the cast, crew and celebrity fans. Today's guest is our two new favorite twins to show us how to renovate and spruce our home. They talk about how the laughs don't stop when in between takes and in the shadows, and they gush over their brand new favorite director in the Biz. Find out who that is. With Randy and Jason squard breathing, it's sowhelming heart. Bizarre has to tell me you. Why would anyone want to be led? Did my hair a reputation before she arrives, but trust me, we have way more fun in the after line. We have way more fun line. All Right, I'm super excited for today's guests. They are my new favorite twin brothers. Hey, yeah, there's a lot. Okay, there's a lot of people on that list and Randy, Randy and Ja sclar are our new favorite property brothers, if you will. They have joined the world and what we do in the shadows, and in this week's episode they were absolutely phenomenal and I'm so excited to have you both on this show. Thanks for being here. Thank you so much, and it was so much fun to get to shoot with you last November for almost a month. It was you were amazing fun to work with and Randy and I always say like there are jobs that we get that we're grateful for all the work, but then you get a job on a show that you've been watching and you're like wait, wait, I get to actually do these things with these people that I'm a little star struck by because this is a show in my queue that I watch every week. And then you're like, I hope I don't screw it up and I hope we're as good as they are, and it's a whole it adds a whole new layer. Well, speaking of we were so excited to have you on the show, obviously, but you said you were fans of the show before. So were you have founded the movie and then the show, or was the show your first experience? So movie, I mean we go way back with Jermaine and, you know, fly to the concords and those guys, meeting them back in like two thousand and we did a I never forget a show we did with them in Seattle where we kind of we went on right before them and that was like in front of like three thousand people. We each did headlining sets, and so we go way back with them. So when the movie came out, I was super excited to see the movie and I loved it so much. And you know, you get this moment where like, Oh my God, how are they going to make a TV series that can actually hold up to the movie? And then there are those TV series where you're like, oh my God, they're doing stuff in this series that they couldn't do in the movie or that takes it further and goes into different places and it has a life of its own and it becomes like your favorite thing. I think it's the best comedy on TV right now. Well, thank you very much, and now you guys are a part of our world. This week we saw that, unfortunately, Jason Jay, you're you. You have an early demise in the show. What you think we'll ever really die in this world? I mean we saw the baron come back and get a full, real full like rejuvenation of his body, which I mean that was hilarious and which is true. You know, that's the first time, one of the few times, that you've ever seen Doug Jones out of prosthetics, out of not acting with an actual like full face of makeup or prosthetic, and I just saw him yesterday actually here in Seattle and uh, and he was you know, the fans have been like raving, like, can you imagine having a...

...career where you're known for all these creatures and whatnot and no one knows what your face looks like? And so you're right, no one dies in the show and I hope that you know, you come back with a with a nice looking neck, because I think not did a number on you. She goes in. She goes in on that, and the best part about that is when I when I get killed immediately as I as we walk in the house, which is hilarious. They they had a rig inside of my shirt that like is spraying blood and I just remember them being like it's not enough blood, like we need more, like turn up the power on that thing, and so all this blood she gets in my neck and all this blood starts spranging on. I'm just sitting in a pool of this like cold blood and I'm thinking to myself, this is everything you always want to do, like you want to have a sensational dying moment on on screen at some point in your life. Uh, and it was. It was beautiful and she and what I loved about her. Okay, this is why she's so great, because we were sort of the deep background moment of that, like we were the we weren't necessarily the focus. That's seeing, because Randy and Matt just sort of walk into the foreground and start having this conversation about what they want to do with the house, but we're in the background and she's just feasting on me and she's like we're in the background, but she's still going at it as if it was the focus of the scene, and I'm like that's just that's why this show is great. Everybody is like a pro and everybody they don't know. How about the how about the first scene, Harvey and that that we shot where I'm speaking to the camera like it's our show, go flip yourself, and Matt is like right behind me. So right behind me there's really funny stuff going on, and then you and Caveon are in the back dumping the body in the thing and you guys are being hilarious in the deep. I mean there's a joke and then there's a joke and then there's a joke way back there. It's again speaks to why this show so goddamn great and you guys were so funny. That was. Remember that first down set which, by the way, we're shooting up in Toronto. It's the middle of winter and you guys have been up there, but that was that was cold right. That was a pretty cold and it was the first scene we're shooting. And I mean this episode is quickly becoming one of my favorites just because it takes us into a different world, out of the documentary world, but into the like HDTV kind of idea of like home, and it's so well done. Your opening credits to your show, where you're like just smashing and they're like, you know, back to back brothers, and those poses and the camera and the way it pans out from like people opening another blindfolds and looking at their new home just so, so, so funny. Um, when you read the script, where you what? What were your thoughts? Like? I mean people always ask how much do you improvise on this show, and now you get to experience, you know, being going up there and shooting with us for like over a month. What was your experience like? What did you think? What were your expectations and what were your what you really experienced? So the audition came through and of course we're like huge fans of the show, I mean like watching every episode, waiting for the next season to come out, and we were like, Oh my God, I love this show so much, and we started reading the script. We were like wait, was this written for us to do? We kind of got really excited and then we're like, oh my God, don't screw it up, do not F it up. And and so my daughter, I have a seventeen year old daughter and she's like the goes to a theater high school and wants to be a director and all this stuff, and she shot our audition. So we're gonna like do it like on a white wall and kind of do it. She's like no, no, no, I want to shoot it like outside, like pretend like you're coming up to our house, and she gave us, she actually gave us some really good notes in the audition. I was really proud of her and how she shot it and looked really cool. And what was great about that is we did it because you can self tape and you wanted to look good. We did it enough times that the scene became very much a part of who we were, so that when we went shot on that first day and we...

...had that stuff, like you went home and we shot the beginning stuff that night. We were the last shots that night, but we had already done it for the audition and we had done it. But so when we when we didn't sent it in, we thought to ourselves, if we don't get this, we're like, if we don't get this, then we should probably quit the business. quit the business right because we're like we love what we did. We said, the leather go one of two ways. They'll either try and get the actual property brothers, which is definitely a choice to like try and get those guys, and those guys would definitely do it, or get someone who's kind of similar that, or the go in our direction, and we were hoping they would, because we knew if they went our way there's so much other comedy that can come up. We know we can bring so much to it beyond just being like house flipping guys. And so what emerged, and as you saw throughout the whole thing, is like the relationship between my character and Matt's character throughout the whole episode like got much deeper and much like closer, which to me is wonderful, because then the reveal at the end, when you pull the rug out from under everything is just that much more of a Dick move. It's a betrayal. It's such a deep, deep, deep betrayal. And so matt was very generously falling for everything that brand was was dishing out, and the more he felt for it, the more I started to do it. And so there were moments where you know you're you're just doing conversation, as you're kind of walking out and playing the scene out and you're improvising that conversation and it was like he was giving me so much that then let the setup at the punch at the end be so great. That's what everybody did. I mean, you were phenomenous scene. There was a moment where not where you know, Natasha's like hypnotizing us and she's like well, who else? Who Else knows about this? And there are a couple of things in there, but the writers are like just go, just continue to go. So I just start listing all these people. I'm like, the producer has a girlfriend, who I can't believe that made it in. I haven't seen it and the best is you know, so I get killed pretty quickly. But I I'm up in Toronto and I still have some stuff to do here and there, but I'm not gonna just sit in my hotel room or walk around Toronto by myself. I love this show so much. I came to the set days when I wasn't even necessarily shooting that much, and I I just remember I was like on the set because I love being around you guys. I loved hanging in the room and just talking to people, and then I would also pitch randy like little jokes between scenes where I'm like try this, throw this and throw that in. So I kind of became like a little many many writers room for Randy to throw in some main provs. I'm like call him Lasmatazz, call him this, call him that, like you're getting comfortable with this guy and if they don't like it, they'll tell you to stop. And and they kind of just they loved that sort of very like Boogie, like boozy, like a little too relaxed, a little too comfortable with everyone, sort of a guy and as soon as as soon as we got into that, I was like, Oh, this is exactly who I know, who this guy is all the way. I think my favorite line that you guys say are the rents that says, what is it? Hey, you knucklehead, like it just became like the ongoing thing. You knuckleheads. Yeah, you know, hey, knuckleheads, you gonna tell this son of a bee to go flip himself. Jay gave me that line. Son of a B it's like you can tell this son of it, like this guy can't curse, like he's there's something about him. Hey, you can tell the son of a being to go flip himself. I mean it's that once you sort of figure out who that guy is, then you just lean into him so hard and and again. It's like so different. That what I love is like it's so different from the energy what I was saying about you and before we started with already,...

I think this season has been phenomenal and awesome for your character. You've gotten so much great physical comedy. I mean to me, when the you open up the door to the side room and the feathers are everywhere because you've just basically had a huge thing and they're just settling down. I mean, I'm sure as you are, I can just imagine you on set and they're like, okay, fluff the feathers, fluff of feathers, and then the door opens and it's coming down. You're like what, there's nothing going on here, and even when you're sitting down and that one feather falls on your mouth, I was laughing so hard and I'm like, I love it. Jay, you were saying how how you were just loving the deepening of his character this. Yeah, because what I love about it is like, so you think about the journey that your character was on, which is like, for the longest time, at the beginning, it was wanting to be a vampire and that was the main drive, and that was just like wanting to transform oneself. Is really the drive there, right, to become the thing that you thought you always wanted to be. Then to reveal that, like your of the you know, your family and lineage is the arch enemy, which I loved in that episode where your whole family came to the house for the first time, and then you realize it's not just like hiding these people and this truth from your family, it's that they all could possibly kill your friends, which to me is like now you're put in the position to protect those people. And then the fact that, like you come out to your family and they're like we know that, but like you want to be a vampire. Like that moment is hilarious and to me that's such a great moment for your character and obviously it's like the heart of the show is like in the moment where where Nandor's puts his hand on your shoulder and it's like you are my best and like I'm sitting in my living room being like just say friend, man, just fucking say friend, saying are my best friend, and he says man, which, by the way, in my mind I'm like take it, that's still pretty good. That's better than nothing, but that and he does know he's like I'll take that. It's it's progress. It's progress from where we were. You know, even we've had those moments early on where, you know, in season one, weird enough, when you know Nick Kroll comes to town and he gets the witch's hat and explodes the nightclub Permo, flying over the city with Nandor afterwards he lets him go and he falls and he's in the hospital and he comes over to him in the hospital. You are my and he doesn't finish his sentence and it's just disgusted by it. But that scene, this this last episode for two episodes ago, was very, very well done, and that was Sara Enough Talas, who who wrote that episode, and she's so talented, amazing. And in just that moment of me in the middle of two families, a chosen family that he's lived with for thirteen years, who sometimes treat him like ship, but the animal does love them, and his biological family, who are then, who are van helsing's, who are who are born vampire killers. And so here is in the middle of two families, two people that he loves, two groups that he loves, and he uses his sexuality as the buffer to come in the situation town, which he hasn't talked about it for all of his life. It's brilliant writing. It's just great writing and when I read it, it was just Sarah killed it with that, you know, with that episode. So so what our writers? Do you know? All our writers? Do you know? Speaking of writers, in this episode, I mean this is it's gonna go down in history as one of, you know, the top episodes, just because of the way that they seamlessly started filming a show within a show, like we're a documentary crew and then your crew comes in top and films in top of the like it's like the layers, but so so seamless and so smooth. And and the way when you take us into the world of like, you know, go flip yourself and it's like hey, knuckleheads, welcome to stand and like even the voiceover, I don't know if that was the voice actress who does the voiceover for all those ht TV shows like someme is a rising city, I think so...

...amazing. And I was just like this blows my mind. And we're doing a show within a show within a show, and only our writers would, would you know, nail that. And and both do. We're so, so great on this. And it was just the Improv on the on the show. Is there a scene that you were just having a hard time getting through? I know sometimes we we improvise them to keep going and we just make each other laugh, but is there seen that you were like, I'm having a tough time with this one. Okay, so the scene, remember when we're all sitting in the room, the fireplace room, and with the tree sticking through the room, in that main room, and I've got've got I've got the computer open and I'm trying to explain where everybody's you know, like this was going to happen to this room, and so I have to like point to the computer, which is not on and they're going to put that in later. So point to things on the computer, explain what we're doing and try and keep laslow engaged to the point where he doesn't see that this is actually I am, who I really am, and keep not, you know, Naja excited and happy about it, and there's this whole thing going on between Nandor and Marwa that I'm also trying to do. So there was so much and you there's so much and you're questioning who you know, you're kind of question this whole thing. So I have to kind of keep you at bay. There's so much to do in that scene. I was like so no, so I kept on running and kept on running it and I like the first time I didn't get through and I was like damn it, I didn't get through it, but like the second time I got through it and the third time. Then we started to find these other moments. It was just a blast. The other thing that it was so funny is when we did the stupid thing that they do in reality TV shows. That was so funny, where you have a crazy moment where we're like we reveal something that happened, like this is what's going to happen, and she's like not, just like you know, Nata, and then we have to do that bad news, bad news. We have bad news, bad news, and then we come back from the break and we have to do it again, but a little bit different, to kind of make fun of how those really these shows doing. I'm like, I'm sorry, guys, I've got some bad news and she's like bad news, News. That cracked me up so hard. And the editing where like the zooming into your face, zooming into their faces, and then Mar's face like not sure what's happening, or like my face, just like who is this guy? Uh? And it's so, so great. It's so great that it's such a fantastic job. Were you surprised coming into the show of how much we do get to improvise? I know working on other shows that's not usually that's that's not usually the norm, you know, and so was that a nice surprise or what was what did you think? So I love that. First of all, everybody was so respectful of what was written, as you just spent like five minutes explaining how much you love what the writer is right and whatnot. So everybody does it exactly as written, and that fun. But then Yanna Corraskaya, the just one of my favorite directors we've ever worked with in all of the comedies we've ever shot, and we've been in this business for a quarter of a century now. She's one of the best, if not the best, that we've ever worked with. You know, she was like, okay, let's have fun, do a fun run. And in the fun run the only way you can fully improvise so well is if you fully understand who these people are and who these characters are and there's like an unspoken bit that happens and you just keep going with it, like you you don't say, Hey, we're gonna do this right now, you just start going with it, and to me what that does is it creates very real moments, which, when you have a very real moment in a TV you know, in a you know filming of a TV show, to me I think that that's just remarkable and I think there are a lot of those on this show based out of the fact that you guys are on your toes. I mean, Jay got a chance to do curb your enthusiasm years ago, and I mean you can speak to that how right that was in the moment to like even not...

...have any lines but just have to get to a place. Yeah, they I mean that show was here's a strip of paper that says Larry Walks in, he says this, then this happens, then you say this at the end of the scene. How you get there's up to you and like that means you have to be present. It forces you to be present and in the moment and within the reality of the scene, and so you know, for an actor, the thing you want. I think sometimes we get bogged down with wanting to make sure we get the line right so that you know we're honoring the line. But really the truth is is if the spirit of the line is perfect and you're being this person and you understand your character beautifully, and I think all the characters on the show, that's part of the reason why people love it, why it endures forever, is that everyone understands their point of view in pretty much every scenario. So once you get that deeply, the lines become just a tool to get that out. And so if you can improvise off of that, you get the lines out and then you still keep going. Then usually, like Randy said, there's like a real moment. And so for Randy and me, I was only in the top of the show, but we definitely found some little improving moments within the lines that they gave us, and part of that was our thing is like how much energy can we give this opening thing that is totally like incongruous with the house we're about to walk into? Like the more energy we give, the more we sort of give it this Christian rock feel, the funnier it is. And so as we were like we're like having fun with each other's energy, then new little things were popping out and it's so funny because once you start doing that, you forget about the lines. You just get the lines right, because now you're into something else that's like what's behind the lines, and I feel like that is a great moment. That's a good place. I loved our scene that we had with Nan or in in the man cave in the Marwa Man Cave, where he's like lays down on the bean bag chair and clearly you are there to be like this doesn't look comfortable at all. So I have to like dispense with you while also pump him up, which is like, as you know, like if you're did you have to do this so many times on the show, deal with like five different things as an actor where you're keeping this at bay while at the same time trying to achieve this objective and whatnot? It just makes you a better actor. It's like I always feel like people are better actors when they're eating in a scene, like if you have like a thing of nuts and you're just eating, you're just are more natural. That's just what it is. So if there's more things in your hopper and so having you, they're kind of almost unmasking what I was doing or being like this, guys, this is a fraud type of scenario. Was Great. I loved it. It's so funny that you said that, because you you um in character of like that. At the end, the big surprise that it's actually uh Simon, the devious played by Nikkole, when you're playing that, but to to fool everyone and to Guiettimo be the one who's like hesitant and and seeing that and the way they wrote that, the character knows how to get to Guillermo, which is, you know what, we should spruce up gearmos like dump of a room, and that wins him over. And then the idea that that wins Garmo. So you're like, okay, he's on board, like we got him, he's in it, because it's like you'll get this luxury bed, Blah Blah, we opened the wall, we make up and that's how you win guermo over. You just have to find a way to like make him drop his guard. And he did it and I think it's so funny that he completely forgets that. He's like, you know, very cautious of you, both of you, and from the get go, because you get into the House and say your opening line is like so we told him that we had to leave, they had to leave the door open so we can come in and check there. And you go into the House and it's so funny that you just need to get back into that house and you created a show with a guy who doesn't know how to do construction that they you just picked the guy who you now look like. It's so funny. It's such a...

...brilliant way to use twins and it's so sad that what the MOM has to have of J and it's like and so like, why didn't you just find someone who was already good at it? No, I found someone who was on their way pay for their education. Father, your father of three. There's a picture with you and your family, and then that's like the comedy and the tragedies, like no, that was a family man. You you build, you know, you just the wrong one too. That's what's so funny. You would have killed Simon from the guy go. You killed the wrong like it's insane. I love that you talked about that like that was the thing that got you was the that I was gonna just improve your room, because I feel like everybody has the thing about, like, you know, these types of shows, that okay, just, you know, just make my room look nice. Everybody falls in love with that, like you, like we are defenseless against I'm gonna make your room look better. This is funny, but the fact that at the end the Rev all because the budget and then I have to pretend to call from the city and pretend to be, you know, all the bad names. You can't do that and it's like well, sorry, guys, due to the you know, we've never seen this before, but we can't do that, but we will do what we can. And then the reveal of like you just put like the smallest like plant on top of the good the whole tree that's on the living room or the fancy room. You just put a plant on top of this fallen tree to cover up. That's the best we could do with the budget, the best you could do with it. It's ridiculous. So Fun. And and then not just gold toilet was another fun one that I really liked, where she's like, and I literally lean into her, like you can't even take a ship, and she's like to stop trying to water and down my brand. She wants a gold toilet so bad. For no reason. She doesn't need a gold toilet, she can't take a ship. She wants the bling. She wants she wants the bling. And I think this is the other thing, is someone who was watching this episode from like even a little bit of a distance, because once I was out of it, I was just really watching you guys do it there is this feeling and I think in every season there there is sort of one episode that kind of emerges as this like, I don't know, this crazy memory. There's so many memoral moments throughout the season, but one sort of episode becomes like that. Like for us the Jackie Daytona one was such an iconic one. I think the the two Um the energy and the emotional vampire battle was another really big one in the first season. And you know the one where I think it was your you going to the meeting with all those guys, was the mosquito hunters, mosquito hunters. That that was another one of those craig grabs. I mean it's so there are those like iconic moments and as I'm watching this, as they're doing this episode and you guys are doing it, I'm like, I think this might kind of be like there's been a lot already this season, like the wedding and whatnot, but like I think this episode has that potential to be. It's like very memorable one out of this season. You know, it's just I would agree. I I think it's it's I mean when I watched it, uh and I got to see it a little bit Um, you know, before this week, and it was just like I couldn't stop laughing, like it's like and I work on the show and you know, I get to and you already know what the story is gonna be in your head. You're like, well, I know what the story is. I read the script, so I know what it's probably gonna come out looking like like man, you never this show just you know it's running on all cylinders and everyone on it and everyone they cast, uh, you know, obviously both the you know randy and Jay. You know you both included. It's like they there's no mistake, like everything is done with with the reason, there's purpose and and the right person and the right actors and the right people come and join us, because it just makes this world like I'm still blown away. It's season four and I'm still like watching episodes that I'm like how, like I get to do this and I'm still lucky to be a part of the show, but how how do they keep doing it? They just keep doing it, like it's just like it just gets better and...

...better and better, and and this episode is going to be like for the books. It's it's so, so, so good. I want to ask Jay. So you got to be on set and kind of be like, you know, a little bit of like behind the camera and seeing how everything works and like this machine. What was your take on like the whole experience? What was that like? It was a set different than you expected, or was it um very similar to what you're used to, or what was your whole take on having that experience? So I'm gonna talk about one thing that was really special and it involves you as well. is they so maybe it's just because of the location of base camp versus, where we were and how cold it was outside. There was a trailer. You guys have a trailer, this really big trailer that's right near the set where the actors hung out between and before takes so they didn't have to go all the way back to their individual trailers. And we've been on sets where, you know, all the actors are in their individual trailers and you really only see each other right when you step onto the set. But we got to spend hours with you guys in this trailer doing silly jokes and getting to know you and talk about stuff and talk about your experiences in Toronto and all this stuff. And so for that to happen for us, New People joining the set. We were suddenly put at total ease. We were making you guys laugh so that we were hopefully, in our own minds, being like all right, they have confidence in us, these guys who know each other so well. Hopefully they'll feel comfortable with us on set and know that we are here to play. And all those moments, like backstage, before we even got onto the set, to me were like those were like gold moments that of course, never you know, I think we were doing some bit with with Natasha where every time she said something we were like, well, that's actually why we're here. We're here from Fox and we're here about quality control, and we just kept doing that dumb bit and then everyone started joining in on that bit and it was like this little thing we're doing in the trailer and it would it just it gave us this feeling like, okay, we're being accepted into this group of really talented people and we're able to just joke around and improve to them that we can play. And then that translates. You walk onto the set and you just see it go straight from that room, all the play and the joy that was in there go straight onto the set, and so actors hanging out with each other is important. I think it builds the chemistry. You see it. So when we see it in backstage and then see it turn around, right around, on the stage, I'm like, oh, that makes sense. Now in my brain it like clicked in to watch all that happened. I'm like, Oh, this is why you know your character and Nandera's character have a shorthand, because you guys were being funny in the trailer and I saw it happen back there and why Matt is so funny with Natasha and their energy ease, like they just get it, because it's not like they don't talk to each other except for when they step on the set, and so that was really, really cool for me to watch. The other thing was super cool for me to watch was just to see how like Jana was working with everyone and ran, and I said this, like when you do a comedy, we've been on comedies before where the director and the crew and those people never laugh. You're like, what the what are you doing? These people are putting so much energy into this stuff and I know it's funny, but they just feel like, okay, this isn't a laugh track show. So as soon as they get it they're like, all right, moving on, and then your left out there going was that funny? I don't I hope that was good. As soon as she cut Yanna laughs so hard and gives it up and tells you what she loves about it. Same with the crew, same with the producers and the writers. They're so they're there to be like all right, you guys, whatever you did on that last thing. That was so good. So watching all that stuff, I know this is a long answer, but you start to understand,...

...like these are the little things that good shows do that make it like, okay, the actors want to be there, they want to play the people come in. You know what I'm saying? Yeah, it's true. It's your you nailed it on the head. It's a it's nothing is better than when you can make the boom guy who's holding, you know, the boom up, giggle and shake the boom and almost drop it because they're listening and laughing about what's happening. You know, I always say that the crew has the you know, the longevity in this business, because you'll always need a boom, a DP and you know actors. I feel like there's just so many of us and it's like if you get that Gig at such a lucky break. But also they've seen it all, so they're like they can, they can phone it in and just holding the boom and that I got it. We're rolling sound. Okay, we gotta move on. But our crew is so engaged with what the storyline is they themselves are laughing. And so there's been takes where that happens, where like literally our boom guys literally laughing and he almost drops the boom. And that's when you know you're creating something good, when when somebody who's seen it all, who's been around for years and they've been on comedies and dramas and they've been around, you know, the a listers and all the time, when they themselves are laughing and engaged in the storyline, you're like, Oh, this is gonna be good. Whatever way they end up editing, this is gonna look great because if this is how funny it is now and it's the whole crew, I mean that's the thing. Like J and I have been around sets where you know the show is. We've been on sets where the show doesn't know if it's going to come back and you know, there's like a sense of nervousness around this, whereas this set everybody's like what you just said. They know they're a part of this really special show. Even when I went into do my a D R session and I met on saw, on Zoom, the you know, the post production people, and they were like they were like we love this episode so much, we love this episode, we love working on it, we thought it was so great, so funny. You're like, Oh, you guys still care about every little detail, and of course they do. It's not just a job to them. I think they who weren't even there with us. You know, some of the people were, but like the two people I've never seen before. They care so deeply about it and they know that they are a part of something that is so special. And I'll say this. We told people, you know, we do sets at the comedy store all the time in Los Angeles, and they're like when are you guys coming back here, and we're like are they're like can you come and do sets in November? We're like no, we're actually going to be up in Toronto and I don't know if we can say this, but we're shooting what we do in the shadows and told other friends and whatnot. They in the comedy community, I mean the very, very top of the comedy community. They love the show so much we got backed sacked. We got so much love for like, Oh my God, you're doing a couple of episodes of that show. That's phenomenal, and we're just like coming in for a few episodes. So understand that from just a guest starring standpoint. That, like the original of the cast and whatnot, of which you are a part of, it is just held in such high regards all over the comedy community. Well, that means a lot. then. Thank you for saying that, because that that's not you know, comedians are hard to to win over. I mean they at the top, you know, at their games. So for a comedian to say that to another comedian, uh, that's great. I love that and and we're so lucky to have you on the show. We're lucky to have you and hope to have a way to uh, you know, no one ever dies and part of us is like in our heart of hearts for like God, we'd love to come back because we're just so much fun to work with you like in some way, shape or form, like, who knows, maybe you know Nandor is like I gotta I want these guys back in my life, or laslow's like I can't live without brandon toby. So we gotta like reanimate them and bring them back. You never know, or that we didn't love the show. He'd love the show. Get a chance, or that we get a chance to make go flip yourself as an actual show, to me would be hilarious. That's so great. I mean, anything's possible in our world. Anything's possible. Uh, and and, we love you andy. We love you J it's just been phenomenal having you guys on. So on the show. We've been asking everyone who's been doing behind the shadows this question. This season we have nausea's nightclub and, although we mentioned it in your show, you know,...

Um, go flip yourself, if you were to have a drink that was to your character, what would be the name of the drink and would it consists of at not just nightclub? Okay, Jay, you gotta do the Toby. Toby is like not an alcoholic Um, it's probably like milk with a shot of Oat. Milk inside of its milk with a shot of Oat milk and it's called like a white Ukrainian. That's good. Like that. Is it Garnish with anything? Is there any like a thing on top or any decoration? Maybe like a doll, just like sugar, sugar around the rim, like it's not even salt. Milk with a shot of Oat milk and it's sugar around the rim. It's a white Ukrainian. There you go. God, that's so good. I feel like my favorite drink now is the apple. Are All sprits. It's like very Italian, you know. It's like apple all a little bit of you know, with a little bit of Ginger Ale or sprite or whatever, and you put a little ton again then you put a orange slice in it. To me it would be like and brands would be like an entire fruit salad inside of an Apper, all sprits. And we call it I don't know what even what. We call it Ja. We call it like the I mean, I don't know. I know you know. We call it brantastic. Is What we call the Brandt head head, the KNUCKLEHEAD, knead, the knuckle head, and it is bran tasting. There there you go. Well, thank you so much for being on the show. We know you have another show right now coming out knows. Do you want to give us some information where we can see that? Where what's all about? Yeah, go ahead. Yeah, so I'll go ahead. So we did a show. We did show on ESPN classic years ago. It was like mystery science theater for the old weird sporting events that lived in the ESPN library. It was called cheap seats and for years our fans have been like we want you to bring it back, and so we finally have an opportunity to bring it back. Jay, you can continue on and explain it. Yes, so, uh, it's it's it's such a fun show and you don't even have to be a fan of you UFC to to enjoy this show. It's just pure comedy and it's been we did six episodes. The first episode is available on Youtube. If you just search nosebleeds and squar brothers Uh UFC, you'll find it. It's basically mystery science theater, as Renny said, uh, with US running commentary and jokes and then jumping out into sketches. Rob quardreys in the first episode, John Hamm plays a personal injury lawyer WHO's trying to wrap fighters Um. Maryland rice cub is in it, Tony Hale is in it. If we're lucky enough to do more, we'll write something for you to do in it. Uh. So that this is the goal. Yeah, man, it's pure comedy. It's that's that's what, that's what I love about this. It's really like this isn't us trying to do a sort of silly sports show. This is US trying to do a full on comedy, full comedy swing, and they let us do it and it's in our voice and uh, and we're proud of it. So go watch the watch the nosebleeds. UH, squad brothers.
