SuChin Pak, Matt McConkey, Kulap Vilaysack, Scott Aukerman

Kulap Vilaysack  00:10

Welcome back to Add To Cart, I’m your auntie Kulap Vilaysack and carters, I’m missing the wings underneath my wings today, that’s right, our beloved Susu is on a 14 hour flight to South Korea, probably strapped into her seat with her foot hammock, neck pillow, her eyes are covered. If there is an emergency, she’s going down with the plane. But worry not, listeners, you are in good hands this week, because my co host is bringing uncle energy to the show. Welcome Matt McConkey.


Matt McConkey  00:43

Hello, Kuku and got what giant wings to fill to be here in Su’s place. I do love imagining her on that plane with her giant bag checked in underneath the plane, shoes brushing up against the clean clothes and the granny undies.


Kulap Vilaysack  01:02

So upsetting. It’s so upsetting


Matt McConkey  01:04

A cubeless bag.


Kulap Vilaysack  01:06

A cubeless bag. I mean, well, that’s similar to you. That’s similar to you.


Matt McConkey  01:10

Well, I definitely don’t bring the same chaotic energy to packing that SuChin does, but I’m closer to her end of the spectrum than the Jason Mantzoukas end of the spectrum. I can tell you that much for sure.


Kulap Vilaysack  01:22

Well, sure, there’s nobody beyond, like, sort of, like, science labs that is around where Mantzoukas is.


Matt McConkey  01:30

Yeah, it’s an impossible.


Kulap Vilaysack  01:32

Yeah, is an impossible task. Yeah, that’s right now, Matt, you’re bringing uncle energy. And I just wanted to share with our listeners, a little audio of what you can create big, yeah, let’s hear it.


Kulap Vilaysack  02:06

That’s a video of Emmy, and at the end, she’s waving because I sent this to Matt. And the day before this recording, we were at Matt’s house.


Matt McConkey  02:16

We had a whole kids Jamboree, and Emmy graced us. She was really like the guest of honor, like the older kids were already here splashing around in the pool, and then Emmy shows up, and it was like we all just kind of freeze to sort of watch her. She never come over to the wait. I guess she’d been over before, maybe when she was littler. But, you know, I just it’s hard, because I want so badly to please her and to be liked by her. And at first, when she walked in, much like her mama, she said, don’t bring me that energy. Don’t bring me that thirst, and she was hiding, really, in your crotch.


Kulap Vilaysack  02:54

Yes, she wanted to go back in, which is strange, because we had a surrogate, but, you know, whatever.


Matt McConkey  02:59

Yeah, but she was like, that’s where I belong, and that’s the only place I feel safe right now. And so I had to, like, find my chill and just like, let her breathe. Breathe in, into your crotch. And, eventually, slowly but surely, we started to have some fun.


Kulap Vilaysack  03:19

Absolutely, she kept calling your name, but she’s known your name for a long time. She knows who you are. There’s the aura frame has Uncle Matt T on it, holding little Emmy when she was just weeks old. So she’s known uncle Matty, but then as soon as it’s like she warmed up, it’s just Matty.


Matt McConkey  03:44

I, it was just, it was like, a siren call. I’d be like, across the yard, and I’d hear it and stop and be like, yes, yes, yes, Emmy. I Please never stop saying. It’s also makes me really, like, more attached to that nickname. Like, I like that people call me Matty, but there’s something weird about nicknames, where it’s like, but it’s not for me to introduce myself as Matty to people, but like the way Emmy says, It is just such music to my ears that it makes me like, should I just, should I legally change my name to Matty? You know?


Kulap Vilaysack  04:18

I mean, it’s something maybe we pull our listeners? Matt, maybe we let’s leave it up to the public.


Matt McConkey  04:25

Should I change legally change my name again? I already did it once. My last name confused a lot of people. Should I do it again?


Kulap Vilaysack  04:34

Maybe? Matt, I mean, we’re gonna talk to my husband in a little bit, but I am just so glad that you were available and willing to to do some shows with me while Su was away.


Matt McConkey  04:47

Are you kidding me? Listen, I I’ll be here any day, any time.


Kulap Vilaysack  04:54

Matty, Matty, we have another friendly face, the show today. I mean, what can I say? He’s add to cart’s unofficial podcast agent. He is my lover, and he’s going on tour. Please add to cart, Scott Auckerman.


Scott Aukerman  05:14

Yay, Matt, I’m not your lover, am I?


Matt McConkey  05:17

Not yet, I hope everything changes today, because, as I said to you, before I started recording for a second, I thought you had a mullet, and I was very aroused.


Scott Aukerman  05:28

Yeah, I have the beginnings of a mullet, which is I have hair. That’s where it starts. Yeah, not the endings of a mullet, which is a mullet, I believe. Hi, guys, hi.


Kulap Vilaysack  05:38

Hi, babe.


Scott Aukerman  05:40

Wonderful to be back on the show. Heavy sigh from my wife.


Kulap Vilaysack  05:43

Well, yeah.


Scott Aukerman  05:45

Odd energy to start with.


Kulap Vilaysack  05:47

I know, but it’s like we’re talking we’re gonna start talking about your tour, and I want you to go out in the road, but I don’t want you go out in the road, that’s my thing, because I’m gonna miss you so much, but.


Scott Aukerman  06:00

Yes, we’re all gonna miss each other, but it’s it’s a tough life being a road dog. You know what I mean, just humping cases in and out of the load out. It’s a long road, but you gotta do it in order to connect with those fans.


Kulap Vilaysack  06:18

Oh, okay, yeah. When’s the last time you went on tour? Scott.


Scott Aukerman  06:24

Did two shows last year.


Kulap Vilaysack  06:27

But you were a road dog.


Scott Aukerman  06:30

It’s real dog energy. Yeah, it’s time. We’re I mean, we did a tour two years ago, which was very successful, and so we thought, let’s get back out there and do some of the cities that we did last time, but a bunch of new cities as well. So it’s very exciting.


Kulap Vilaysack  06:49

It’s so exciting, talk about it, babe. Talk about the tour. Talk about where you’re going, talk about who you’re bringing. So are you allowed not?


Scott Aukerman  06:57

I mean, one person, certainly. But, um, yeah, it’s the comedy. Bang Bang, Bang Bang, into your mouth tour 24.


Kulap Vilaysack  07:05

Nope, and no one of the people who you’re bringing was not happy with that you didn’t tell him that was the name of the tour.


Scott Aukerman  07:13

No. Paul F Tompkins is not happy about the name of the tour, which is an inside joke from the podcast, but not from him. So he was unhappy when it was debuted, but the t shirt art looks great with it. It’s it actually all worked out. I think it’s, if you haven’t heard my show, comedy, Bangbang. It’s an improv podcast, and so every show is totally different. It’s going to be myself as the host, and then Paul F Tompkins will be playing different characters every single night, and then we have a rotating group of what we call the CBB. All Stars, or the CBB, are ready for prime time players. Okay, a bunch of, bunch of rogues, the Rogues Gallery, and we’re all, you know, it’s just a rotating group, and we’re very excited, and we want to see the people we’re comedy. We’re coming to them. You know, they don’t have to come to us anymore. They don’t have to show up at our house anymore, and that’s normally what they do. And I don’t listen to reverse stalking, yeah.


Matt McConkey  08:16

I mean, I know you can’t say who’s going to be on, but it’s like, I know that it’s going to be a murderer’s row of the best. I mean, just look at who guests on comedy, bang, bang every single week. It’s going to be all the greats.


Scott Aukerman  08:28

Yeah. So if everything happened correctly, last week in Boston, we had Jason Mantzoukas showed up for the Boston shows, as well as Ryan Gaul in New York, ego Odom. It’s going to be a different group of people every single tour stop, and which is really exciting to for the fans. I think, who really want to see people?


Matt McConkey  08:50

They were all fantastic, by the way.


Scott Aukerman  08:53

They were amazing. None of them dropped out,


Kulap Vilaysack  08:56

Nope, nobody.


Scott Aukerman  08:59

Not a single person dropped out.


Kulap Vilaysack  09:01

Not one first, buried in cubes, not a one.


Matt McConkey  09:07

Do you pack cubes for tour yourself?


Scott Aukerman  09:10

No, I don’t. I pack a if it’s like the last two or two years ago, I forget to pack everything, and have to make multiple stops at different department stores along the way to buy underwear, belts, shirts, everything.


Kulap Vilaysack  09:23

There’s another way. Scott, I just, I can help. Let me help you. I okay for Christmas, I got you a really cool suitcase that you just have to, oh, boy.


Scott Aukerman  09:38

Well, you know, because I don’t know. I opened it up and Kulap went. I have no idea what this does.


Kulap Vilaysack  09:44

Okay, to be fair, Paul Scheer recommended Santa Paul Scheer recommended it. And I just thought, oh, this is great, because it’s a situation where you can pack it and then you’re able to remove this piece of it and hang it up. Like, there’s, like, cubes that can be hung.


Scott Aukerman  10:03

That’s great, this is so boring.


Kulap Vilaysack  10:06

Scott, this is Add to Cart.


Scott Aukerman  10:11

Oh, this is the show.


Matt McConkey  10:14

Any suitcase is good enough for Paul Scheer, I gotta imagine, is a good suitcase.


Kulap Vilaysack  10:18

He has, he’s got. He’s my guy, he’s my go to guy. Okay, so you’re gonna be gone for the entire summer. Your child is gonna grow.


Scott Aukerman  10:28

No, no, no, no, I’m coming back every 10 days or so. It’s not that. It’s not gonna be that much.


Matt McConkey  10:34

Well, Scott, I know Emmy’s not gonna forget you, because when she was at my house the other day, every picture that I pointed to that had a man in it. She said, Daddy, and I was like, Oh, that, yeah, that kind of looks like Daddy, and that he is a white man.


Scott Aukerman  10:50

Wasn’t she also calling you daddy at some points?


Kulap Vilaysack  10:54



Matt McConkey  10:54

She was, she was definitely calling me Matty, but she was calling you saw a picture of Michael, I think she was referring to as Daddy, daddy, and then also keep hearing daddy, yes, right? Which is a compliment.


Kulap Vilaysack  11:07

It is a compliment. But I had to say to Emmy, that’s racist. Not all white men are daddy. They don’t all look alike.


Matt McConkey  11:15

It’s gonna take her a while to learn that, though.


Scott Aukerman  11:18

Yeah, I know it’s tough. Do you think when I get home after the first leg, she’s gonna like kind of gesture over to me with her thumb and go, who’s this guy?


Matt McConkey  11:30

I don’t know she might be because she is hilarious.


Kulap Vilaysack  11:33

She does have a great personality.


Scott Aukerman  11:36

She’s very funny. We were sent a video yesterday of her pointing at her rear end, just saying, but, but, but, but.


Matt McConkey  12:04

It’s a great bet. It’s a really solid bet.


Kulap Vilaysack  12:07

So proud of her.


Kulap Vilaysack  12:18

Scott, let’s get into your carts. Wait before we talk about carts. Are we going to talk about how you’re writing a Spider Man digital comic? Can we tell the people about that real quick?


Scott Aukerman  12:28

Sure I am writing four issues of a Spider Man comic. I’ve written a few comics before for Marvel, and I usually try to fit Spider Man into them, if I can. So I wrote something for Deadpool and I put Spider Man in it, and then I wrote something for Secret Wars and I put Spider Man in it, and then I wrote something for Spider Man Deadpool, and that already had Spider Man in it. So I always try to put Spider Man into stuff. He’s my favorite. So I got offered to write four issues of a of a title called Spider Man unlimited. This is on the Marvel Unlimited app. It’s exclusively online. And so I wrote four issues of it, and sort of created a new character, co created a new character, a couple new characters, and kind of with the intention of, oh, maybe if I ever write any more, I can follow up on it, and pretty quickly after that, it looks like I am writing more. I can’t exactly say what as of yet, but yeah, this is just the start of some stuff I’m setting up. So check those out, it’s Spider Man, unlimited, 39, 40, 41 and 42 those are my issues. So there will be more coming down the down the road, the line, the web, the pipe.


Kulap Vilaysack  13:55

There we go.


Matt McConkey  13:57

That’s so cool. I mean, if I can ask some nerdy questions about this.


Scott Aukerman  14:04

Sure I have room for two more.


Matt McConkey  14:06

Okay, I better make them count. One, when you’re working in the Marvel multiverse, how much leeway are you given to create your own stuff? Are there certain like structure rules that you have to follow or like character limitations put on you.


Scott Aukerman  14:25

I don’t think there was anything in terms of creating stuff. It’s it’s always a dance, especially with spider man, who’s in so many books and also has a main title that other people are working on. It’s sort of a delicate dance of, like, what can I do with some of the people that have already been created. So for instance, I was sort of like, hey, I want to do this with this villain. And they said, no, that one’s already being used in another book. And so it’s, it’s a little stuff like that. But as far as creating stuff, it’s been pretty easy. I mean, I think they’re happy to have new stuff created for them. A lot of people go in and just try to write the same old people. So I love the early issues of Spider Man, when it was like all about creativity and and creating new things and new subplots and new ways to do stuff. So that’s sort of what I’m emulating with what I’m doing.


Matt McConkey  15:16

The Kulap character, the Kulap comic character.


Scott Aukerman  15:19

What was she? Catharsis? Catharsis.


Kulap Vilaysack  15:21

She’s DC. She’s DC competition.


Matt McConkey  15:26

She doesn’t belong in this conversation at all.


Scott Aukerman  15:29

Believe you, me, I I thought about a crossover, but I don’t think they would be able to do that with the rights. Unfortunately.


Kulap Vilaysack  15:37

I’d give it to I’d give it to you, babe. If it was up to me, I’d give it to you.


Scott Aukerman  15:43

Thank you.


Kulap Vilaysack  15:44

Scott, let’s get into your cart. You are adding to cart. Doctor Who?


Scott Aukerman  15:49

Doctor Who is back. Oh, baby. I started watching, you know, back, back during the modern reboot, our friend Rob Schrob. I remember we went out to dinner. Do you remember this? We went out to dinner with him and John Hamm and and a bunch of Sarah Silverman and a bunch of people. And Rob was, like, on his phone and sort of fidgeting the entire dinner and and I was like, what’s going on with you? What are you checking? Do you have a big important work thing, and he’s like, they’re announcing the new Doctor Who like the new actor to play it, I guess. And I was just kind of like, found it very amusing, because I was like, oh, that old 60s TV show. But it got me interested. So when they started airing them on the BBC. I started watching, and it became one of my favorite shows. And I I love it. And the recent years, I really like the actress who was playing Doctor Who but I didn’t really love the recent seasons, because a man let her down. They got a new show runner, and it wasn’t really exactly the greatest fit. So the old showrunner is back. There’s a new doctor, and just really has the feel of Doctor Who, again. So I’m very, very excited about it.


Kulap Vilaysack  17:15

Matt, are you familiar with Doctor Who?


Matt McConkey  17:18

I am not familiar at all. I’ve never seen a frame, but I’m interested in this one because I know that the doctor who is from sex education, I really like that actor, could I just jump in to this?


Scott Aukerman  17:29

Well, I’ll send you one. I’ll send you one frame if you want.


Matt McConkey  17:33



Scott Aukerman  17:34

And then that’ll be enough.


Matt McConkey  17:36

That’ll be it. That’ll do me. And if I decide to go beyond a frame, I can, I could just watch the new right?


Scott Aukerman  17:42

Anyone can jump in, really, even in the middle of a season, if you wanted to. It’s all you need to know is that the doctor is a, what they call a Time Lord, which is he can time travel and lives a long time. And anytime he dies, he gets regenerated into a new body. So that’s why there’s been so many people playing the doctor over the years, since the 60s. So it’s been 60 years that the show’s been on the air. And yeah, so you can just pop in with really any episode, or at the beginning of a season. […] This is a great season to just start new with, because, yeah, he’s a great actor. It’s, I may be mispronouncing his name, but it’s Ncuti Gatwa is the new doctor, yeah, and yeah, it’s, it’s a really good season. It has kind of the feel of what I love about Doctor Who.


Kulap Vilaysack  18:44

Matt, if you get interested, trust that Scott has a doc. Do you have a notes on your phone of just like the best episodes?


Scott Aukerman  18:53

Yes, I did a rewatch recently of the entire modern era, and I ranked every single episode on my phone. So I even, I even ranked best seasons theme song, which, because it’s the same theme song, but the arrangement is different. So I ranked, and.


Matt McConkey  19:10

This was not for a publication.


Kulap Vilaysack  19:14

Oh, no, Matthew.


Scott Aukerman  19:16

For a thesis or anything like that. No, I don’t get course credit for this, or I don’t get my driver’s license back if it’s suspended because of this, but I just did it for fun. But yeah, if you’re interested, I got all that stuff.


Kulap Vilaysack  19:32

He’s got the info, Matt, you don’t have to waste your time, okay.


Matt McConkey  19:36

Okay, thank you so much. What a great service.


Kulap Vilaysack  19:39

What is falling in love on the path to hell?


Scott Aukerman  19:43

So as you mentioned, I’m writing comics. The very first one that I ever wrote, I mentioned it was for Deadpool, and that’s because a friend of ours, Jerry Duggan, was writing Deadpool at the time, along with Brian Posain, another friend of ours, and Jerry asked if I would write a five page story for one of his Deadpool issues. So this is a new comic that Jerry created. It’s out now in stores, and it’s called Falling in love on the path to hell. It’s about people on two sides of the world. There’s a it’s, it’s set in 1877 there’s a gunslinger in Los Angeles, who, you know, is basically a Western for his half of the story. And then there’s a woman Samurai, or just a samurai, I should say, don’t need to gender her, but it comes into play. There’s a samurai in Japan, and they both die at the same time and end up in Purgatory, where they fall in love. And so it’s a mixture of cowboys and Samurai, and then also weird purgatory, kind of world building, magic kind of stuff. So it’s a very interesting comic. The first issue just came out, and it’s really good, and I wanted to tell people about it.


Kulap Vilaysack  21:00

I love it, I love Jerry. Speaking of romance, we went on a date recently and saw a movie. Just this past week, we saw Furiosa. Scotty is adding it to cart.


Scott Aukerman  21:23

I’m adding it to card. I think because we added a I wouldn’t even call it a disagreement, just a difference of opinion on it, which I thought was interesting. It was one of those times where, like, you watch a movie and you think you’re on the same page with the person you’re seated with. I was really enjoying it. And at the end, I said, wow, that was great. And Kulap, before I could say that Kulap, turned to me and went, well, that was.


Kulap Vilaysack  21:49

A movie. And then Scott goes, I loved it. I think you did.


Matt McConkey  21:58

Why didn’t you Kulap


Kulap Vilaysack  21:59

I don’t know. There’s times that I was just bored. There’s parts that I liked, but then I just didn’t.


Scott Aukerman  22:05

You liked Fury Road, though.


Matt McConkey  22:06

I loved Fury Road loved it.


Scott Aukerman  22:09

This is a little bit different from Fury Road in the sense of there are only a few set pieces that are like Fury Road, where it’s that kind of relentless action. So I can see anything that’s not that maybe someone being bored with, but I really like the world building and the the emotional stakes of it, and just the images in it are just it’s so crazy that George Miller, the director, is 80 years old and doing just crazy stuff.


Kulap Vilaysack  22:39

And it feels like no one else is. So it’s, yeah, I think I would have benefited from seeing the Charlie’s their own Fury Road more recently. Like, I there’s certain things. I was like, ah, this is in reference to something and I don’t remember, and I’m trying to put it together while I’m listening to it. And I’m like, okay, like, and Scott, you had recently watched them.


Scott Aukerman  23:01

I recently watched Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome for my own show, the my movie show Scott hasn’t seen. So I was kind of deep in the world and I, and I had watched Fury Road around then as well. So it’s not like you need to know Fury Road, though, in order to enjoy it. In my opinion, because it’s like there’s just certain things that, yeah, you she ends up being Charlize Theron at the end. That’s about all you need to know, you know, right?


Matt McConkey  23:31

But, I mean, you need to see Fury Road just because it’s an amazing movie. But I’m happy to know that at least one of you thinks that Furiosa is too.


Scott Aukerman  23:39

Yeah, I mean it’s as long as you don’t go in expecting Fury Road part two, where it’s just gonna be non stop action, then I think you’ll just enjoy the craziness of it.


Matt McConkey  23:48

Have you ever seen this? Is completely unrelated. Other than that. It’s just something I just rewatched that I think is a perfect movie. Is the Invisible Man, the Elizabeth Moss Point.


Scott Aukerman  23:59

Oh, the reason i That was the last movie I saw before covid, I believe in the theater.


Matt McConkey  24:03

Same, and that might be why I love it so much, because it is of another, another, uh, better time, but God.


Scott Aukerman  24:12

I gotta say, what I really liked about it, that I I just was surprised I had never seen before was normally in the Invisible Man movies, you know, be it the Invisible Man or Memoirs of an Invisible Man, you know, all the Invisible Man lore over the years, it’s always been like a doctor who drinks a serum or something, and literally, his body becomes invisible. And when they showed basically that this was a piece of tech. This was a piece of like, it was a bodysuit that, like, refracted light or something like that, and made it so that you could see through the actual suit. I was just like, oh my God. I’ve never seen this before in a movie, and I thought it was very, very cool.


Matt McConkey  24:55

It’s awesome. It’s awesome. And it’s the fact that Elizabeth Moss, it’s really not. About the Invisible Man at all. It’s about his victim, and she just gets to kick ass over and over again in the movie. And it would be so easy for it to just be about a movie who about a woman who is being scared of the being terrorized and running from it, but she’s so smart, makes the smartest decision at every turn.


Kulap Vilaysack  25:21

Oh, wow.


Matt McConkey  25:21

Just a good time.


Kulap Vilaysack  25:22

Scotty white.


Scott Aukerman  25:23

I really enjoyed it.


Kulap Vilaysack  25:24

Why didn’t I go with you? Did you ask me to go? Do you recall?


Scott Aukerman  25:27

I went with director of sharktail? Rob Lederman, oh. I guess there’s tension in it and you don’t like scary things. Thriller verging on horror elements.


Kulap Vilaysack  25:39

Yeah, I’m out, I’m out now, Matt, did you know that Scott remembers where he’s seen every movie in theater, like, which theater that’s like his special skill?


Matt McConkey  25:51

Well, I was struck that he not only remembered that he was at the arc, like, because this was, like, now, four or five years ago, but that he also remembered who he saw it with.


Scott Aukerman  26:02

Oh yeah, we had a nice conversation afterwards. It was in the dome. It was the last movie I saw, not only in the Arclight, but in the dome itself. And then everything closed down right afterwards.


Kulap Vilaysack  26:15

Is this special ability? Are you able to remember what you’ve seen for the first time at home, or is it only about movie theaters?


Scott Aukerman  26:23

If I saw it at home, I can usually remember that. And sometimes like where, like which place, what home, or whatever.


Matt McConkey  26:30

God, that’s amazing.


Kulap Vilaysack  26:31

Oh, we have many homes.


Scott Aukerman  26:33

Yes, no meaning, like, where I was living at the time, what I was doing at the time, I don’t know. I always felt like going to the movies was very fun and special, and so it always was very exciting to me. So they say that memory is tied into emotion, you know, and I always really loved it as a kid, so I can kind of just remember everywhere that I’ve ever seen movies.


Kulap Vilaysack  26:56

Let’s go around the horn and say, What was the first movie that we saw in theaters, I’ll start coming to America.


Scott Aukerman  27:05

Oh boy, and you were 15, hopefully.


Kulap Vilaysack  27:08

No, no, I was there with my parents, and we loved it. We loved it.


Scott Aukerman  27:16

And do you remember it?


Kulap Vilaysack  27:17

Yes, of course, yes it’s time to clean the roll of penis, yes.


Matt McConkey  27:22

I have no idea what my first one was. I couldn’t I have, I have many memories of going to the movies with my family and the my you know, we were a family that always brought our own soda, bought the popcorn. We decided the popcorn is worth the investment, not the soda. And I was so embarrassed of the sound of these cans opening in the movie theaters like so loud. Yeah, I was like, can we at least open the cans quietly? Or choose a loud moment, my sister like reveled in shaming me by with just the loud, bold crap.


Scott Aukerman  27:59

That your sister knew that it didn’t matter.


Matt McConkey  28:01

Yeah, exactly. And she was, like, she was the most well adjusted, 100%.


Scott Aukerman  28:04

Mine like, like Matt was saying it, there were so many, but I would have to say it was either Bambi or Snow White or Pinocchio or, like, the Apple Dumpling gang. It was one of those, like Disney ones. I went to a lot of those, just whatever Disney had out at the time, like Gus the place, kicking mule and, yeah, you know, all those kind of things. So escape from which mountain, like all of those kind of blend together for me when I was really young. So I think I probably didn’t go to movies until maybe I was five, or something like that. I do remember being about five and going to a drive in with like a random cousin and seeing a double feature of Friday the 13th, and maybe, like Friday the 13th part two, like terrifying slasher movies as.


Kulap Vilaysack  28:08

Oh my God


Scott Aukerman  28:47

A child, yeah.


Kulap Vilaysack  28:58

Well, you love, you love horror films, I mean.


Scott Aukerman  29:02

I do, I do, my parents would do the thing where it would be like, we’d go in the station wagon. We could watch the first movie. I remember watching the Muppet Movie, how to drive in movie theater, and then it was like, okay, go to sleep in the back of the station wagon while we watched the second movie. And so we would always like, sort of like, have our sleeping bags in the back, and then kind of like, try to peek over the seed every once in a while to see some of the second movie, you know. But in my mind, it was always like, the second movie was always more adult for whatever reason. But I that can’t be right, like, can’t be showing, like, the Muppet Movie as a double feature with, you know, like deep throat or anything like that.


Matt McConkey  29:44

But in between they’re like, nope, everybody, put those kids in the way back, get the sleeping bags out.


Kulap Vilaysack  29:51

Can you even imagine doing that with Emmy? Like, just go to sleep, just go, go in the trash.


Scott Aukerman  30:00

I don’t even know when she’ll be able to see a movie or anything. I mean, she doesn’t have the patience to even watch one at home right now.


Kulap Vilaysack  30:07

We’re at three quarters, three quarters of Moana at any given time.


Scott Aukerman  30:11

She does have the ability to pick up a control and crank up the max app and ask for some Elmo.


Kulap Vilaysack  30:18

She she took, she took over at Matt’s house. She was just all of the remote Scott, all of the remotes.


Scott Aukerman  30:27

So she’d navigated to the max app and then saw Elmo on it.


Kulap Vilaysack  30:31

She was looking.


Scott Aukerman  30:31

She was actually pointing at the max app, like thumbnail, and saying, Elmo, Elmo, Elmo. And I was like, God, she’s smart. And we, I kept saying, I kept saying, we don’t have Max. We’re poor, sorry.


Kulap Vilaysack  30:58

Let’s talk about what you’re removing from cart.


Scott Aukerman  31:02

I’m finally removing the boot that was on my foot for weeks. I had foot surgery pretty recently.


Kulap Vilaysack  31:13

Tell them why. Why did you have to have it?


Scott Aukerman  31:16

We were playing pickleball with Casey Wilson, and this is on my birthday, and a couple years ago.


Kulap Vilaysack  31:26

It was our baby moon. It was our baby moon that we were celebrating together. Oh, I forgot you were away. When this happened.


Scott Aukerman  31:32

I forgot we were away. We were in Napa Valley and playing pickleball. And Kulap was saying, you gotta play pickleball. It’s so fun, it’s so fun, you gotta play.


Kulap Vilaysack  31:39

I packed my own paddles and balls and yeah.


Scott Aukerman  31:43

So I played pickleball, broke my ankle, So ever since then, it’s been a long journey of going to physical therapy and several doctors visits, and there’s always been like something wrong with it. So I finally had surgery on it a little while back, and then was in a boot for a while after that. So finally got the boot off. I’m hoping that it recovers and that it’s gonna be back to semi normal ish, but I’m happy to have the boot off, happy to be able to actually go into a shower without having to wrap a plastic bag around my leg. And yeah, I took a bath the day that I got it off, and just like, soaked luxuriously, because I hadn’t been really, you know, in had any water on me for quite a few weeks. And, yeah, it’s just great to be out there bootless.


Kulap Vilaysack  32:49

I offered to be of service, and Scott said, No, I’m like, I’m available. I’m available for anything.


Scott Aukerman  32:54

Sponge bathing and the like.


Matt McConkey  32:58

I forgot that you to break an ankle as hell, enough, but to have it to be in Napa?


Scott Aukerman  33:04

That was the ultimate indignity.


Matt McConkey  33:06

Just so you have to go to a hospital in Napa Valley.


Scott Aukerman  33:10

No, so I was like, sort of hopping around or walking on it, and then I put some ice on it, and just kind of like walking around it gave us a nice excuse to be honest, because our Casey had hired like someone to drive us around because we were going to wineries and stuff and didn’t want to drive, and he suggested this restaurant, and we went to a different restaurant with the same chef the night before and didn’t really like it. And then we were like, how do we tell our driver? We like, it’s his friend’s place. How do we tell our driver? And it was like, such a good excuse of like, Oh no, our friend hurt his ankle. We can’t go out. So that was good but then then I walked around on it for maybe three more days, I know. We went to the Hollywood Bowl, and we saw Steve Martin and Martin Short, where I was like, walking around on it, and then after, like, untreated after, after, like, five days of this, I’m like, it’s not getting better. Let me go see the doctor. And then yeah, just became a long saga.


Matt McConkey  34:14

They’re like, yeah, that’s uh, broken, can I ask? Will you ever get back on a pickleball court?


Scott Aukerman  34:21

Hell no, Matty, I didn’t want to go the first time.


Kulap Vilaysack  34:24

Now, Matty is an avid dinker, so I say it, Matt?


Matt McConkey  34:31

I don’t know about avid but Kulap and I learned together, and I have continued in a way that I think Kulap, you know, kind of moved on, but I’m playing in it. I mean, it’ll be over by the time this comes out, but I’m playing in like a pride tournament this weekend. I’m very nervous about because I am a little bit out of practice. Hmm, for as long as I’ve been playing, I should be much better. I’m fine. I’m proficient. I’m not good.


Scott Aukerman  34:56

I did have fun. I mean, I used to play racquetball. All for gym, that was my, my choice when I was in high school, of you could pick any kind of like thing to do during gym, and that was my thing as racquetball. I also picked scuba at one point, you know, the Self Contained Underwater breathing apparatus. So I almost got certified.


Kulap Vilaysack  35:19

You know, Casey certified. I was saying Casey Wilson, and she’s, I’m just, I don’t want to, just want to bring it up.


Scott Aukerman  35:26

I’m not doing anything else with her, because I felt, I felt unsafe during the picket pickleball thing.


Kulap Vilaysack  35:33

Well, to be fair, I was the one who lobbed it at you when you leapt up and broke your ankle. So that was it was me. It was me.


Scott Aukerman  35:44

I feel like Casey’s chaotic energy was a big part of the reason why everything was just going haywire during that.


Matt McConkey  35:55

Every time I’m reminded that she is a scuba diver, that she’s certified, I’m it’s just so conf, none of that fits like that is such a terrifying activity to me.


Kulap Vilaysack  36:10

And it’s a family activity, her brother, her dad.


Scott Aukerman  36:13

They’re all scuba divers.


Kulap Vilaysack  36:15

They’re all scuba divers. Yeah, just


Matt McConkey  36:18

When you think she’s gonna Zig, you know that girl will surprise you.


Kulap Vilaysack  36:22

Scott, I don’t want to let you go, and I won’t ever, until you die, and even when you die, I’ll try. I shall stuff you, that’s my plan.


Scott Aukerman  36:32

That’s right, I guess it’s just accepted. I’m gonna die first in this family, but which is fine.


Kulap Vilaysack  36:40

Scott, where can people find out about how to get tickets to this tour, this 35 stop tour?


Scott Aukerman  36:48

All of the information is at that’s, some of the shows are sold out. Some are not even close, because we’re playing really, really big venues. And, but yeah, all the tickets are available right now. And and it is really fun. If you’ve never been to a show, it’s all new. It’s all improv. It’s unique to that city. People can also, if you, if we’re not playing anywhere near you, people can go to and follow along, because we’re posting all of the shows as we do them, so people can listen as we go and follow us like we’re the Grateful Dead or something so, but orally, but, and when I say orally, I mean A U R.


Matt McConkey  36:52

That’s not what I heard.


Kulap Vilaysack  37:45

Okay, kind of hate this Road Dog persona that you’re developing. I like it. No, Scott, I asked you for the 100th time you mentioned comedy CBB world. I asked you to be brave, and I’ve pitched you over and over, a show that will bring hordes of subs, of subscribers. Ask me anything about Scott. I host it. I get callers, I answer explicitly, whatever the callers ask about you, your fans, the people who love you, will you be brave today?


Scott Aukerman  38:23

I don’t know that we have the budget for that show, unfortunately.


Kulap Vilaysack  38:27

Because of my rate?


Scott Aukerman  38:29

Yeah, it’s not fitting into our budget. It’s not fitting into the I don’t know that we have available days to release it. It’s just, I don’t think it’s something that we’re interested in at this time, but we will let you know.


Matt McConkey  38:45

No bandwidth over at CBB. I mean, Kulap. I don’t know what’s stopping you from just doing that show.


Kulap Vilaysack  38:54

Interesting, interesting, interesting, unauthorized. Oh, oh, wow, oh, wow. I could have my own discord. I don’t know what it is, but I could have my own.


Scott Aukerman  39:07

You’re really testing the am I gonna die before you?


Matt McConkey  39:11

This might change the equation. This might change it.


Scott Aukerman  39:16

I’m gonna murder you. So what I’m trying to say.


Kulap Vilaysack  39:18

Oh, that was clear to me. I just was sort of waiting to hear the words.


Scott Aukerman  39:21

Invisible Man style.


Kulap Vilaysack  39:25

And on that note.


Matt McConkey  39:27

Which, if you think about it, is, I Sorry, just, just is very is it’s, it is very romantic. He loved her so much that he went invisible and faked his own death.


Scott Aukerman  39:37

It is a romance. You’re right, that movie is very sweet.


Kulap Vilaysack  39:39

Oh, gosh, that’s a different point of view. Oh, honey, thank you for loving me so much. You can find Scott on Instagram at Scott Ackerman. Look, he’s only gonna post things about his shows okay, you’re not gonna get political stances. You’re not gonna get personal photos. Okay, that’s what his social media is and sorry if he didn’t know you at the time that he started Instagram. That’s the reason why he’s not following you, don’t take any offense.


Scott Aukerman  40:10

I have a social media policy, which is the app asks me, do you want to follow anyone in your contacts list? It follows everyone who’s in my contacts list who is on the app at that point, and I never add anyone else after that.


Kulap Vilaysack  40:24

I have seen people over the years be hurt by that explanation, close friends of ours, hurt.


Scott Aukerman  40:33

It is what it is. It is what it is.


Matt McConkey  40:35

I think you I think the fact that you keep putting that out, keep reminding people periodically, you’re covered. You’re safe.


Scott Aukerman  40:42

If you want me to follow you, join the app before I do.


Kulap Vilaysack  40:46

Well, Scott, you will be gone for many days, but I will always light a candle for you, and I’m going to create sort of a pillow, approximation of your body to kind of have, like a placeholder.


Scott Aukerman  40:58

Is it only gonna get 1/8 of the bed, like I do.


Kulap Vilaysack  41:01

That’s not true. That’s so not true. Okay, we’re gonna go.


Scott Aukerman  41:05

We’re so far over last.


Matt McConkey  41:08

You guys have a king bed, by the way, don’t you?


Scott Aukerman  41:11

We have a California king. And I get like, like half a twins worth of it.


Kulap Vilaysack  41:16

I looked at Matt’s bed the other day, and I was like, but there’s, it’s so small for two.


Scott Aukerman  41:21

We’re in a queen, Michael won’t. Michael will not go bigger than a queen bed. And it’s like it is a small bedroom, but like we could squeeze a king in there, and he refuses.


Kulap Vilaysack  41:34

Ah, all right, Scott, we gotta let you go. But before you go, say that you love me.


Scott Aukerman  41:38

Um, add to cart. Listeners, it’s so great to connect with you, and it’s wonderful to be back on the show. And Matt, it’s a pleasure to be talking to you, and.
