Nude Not Descending A Staircase

Powered by pickles (delicious McClure’s pickles to be exact) Larry launches another poetry-packed, joke-jammed podcast. This week, we hear about what Larry finds so disappointing about “Nude Descending A Staircase.”

Then he tells us how many times his car keys can be lost in 20 square feet of space, in the span of an hour. (Spolier alert: Marcel Duchamp is blamed for both.) Set your phasers on “mirthful” and tune in to this week’s This Week With Larry Miller!

Quote of the week: “It’s not quite like leafing through a Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue.”

    Gee whiz Wally… the number 2 pencil refers to the hardness of the graphite and not the color. Number 2 pencil came to international fame with in introduction of the Scantron answer sheet and machine that optically read those little bubbles that your filled in and the number 2 pencil worked best.

    Bureau or not, it’s tough to do comedy in Czechoslovakia because… drum roll please… there is no longer a country called Czechoslovakia.

    Hey Larry,

    So glad you mentioned Frostiana on the podcast. I have heard the piece many times and got to sing Randall Thompson’s The Testament of Freedom once. I didn’t think your podcast could get any better, and then you added poetry. Thank you so much.

    Here’s a performance of Frostiana:

    Rain as a free car wash”: sometimes in the past, when it rained I would go out and squirt or pour dishwashing liquid or laundry detergent over my car, so the rain could “wash” it better.

    It works a little bit.

      dishwashing liquid will ruin the paint over time

    Sorry Larry but I nodded off during the poem. Maybe rethink doing the poetry corner please?

    Here’s an idea that is just crazy enough that it might work. As you know, Larry, stand up comedy is a tough nut to crack. Sadly, not everybody makes it to the big time and a lot of those that do, don’t have the staying power to remain on top. A lot of those dead horses that the failing comics are beating still have a couple of furlongs of good jokes left in them so why not develop a venue specifically designed for the failing comic called “Catch a falling star”? I’m not mentioning any names here but I’m sure people would “welcome back” old sitcom performers. The Laughs would be Smothered in nostalgia. The tag line could be “you can see them here or you can see them at Taco Bell… either way you must pay.”

    Another “Superman Pondering”…

    Why were the first two people who called superman a “bird” or a “plane” super excited?
