Some weirdos have been requesting more up-and-coming and less "established" comedians for a glimpse into the beginnings of standup and Mike Lawrence, although he has appeared on John Oliver's New York Standup Show and taped Conan shortly after recording this episode, at least somewhat fits that bill. A super weird guy and a super interesting and hilarious guy. Please enjoy you weirdos!

Myq Kaplan (Last Comic Standing, Vegan Mind Meld, comedy), and I know we say this a lot but FOR SERIOUS, gets real weird in this episode. Non-monogomy and other serious or deep things come up somehow amidst a sea of jokes. Just a SEA of them. A quick, deep mind. Get into it!

Larry Miller (Seinfeld, Christopher Guest's movies, comedy) comes by and makes it both delightful (another wonderful happily married man to join the ranks of Greg Fitzsimmons and Gaffigan before him!) and weird. This episode made Pete happy inside. He hopes it does the same for you, weirdos!!

Nikki Glaser (Last Comic Standing, You Had To Be There podcast) is one of the best, funniest and most interesting comedians we've had on to make it weird. Good lord it gets weird. I'm not just saying that. This one goes some places that made Pete's face all flush. And we left it in. Because that's what we do. Incredible episode. Please enjoy!

Pete sits down and gets real weird real fast with his longtime Chicago buddy Nate Craig with whom (how fancy! "with whom"!) he started standup back in 2001. So they get nostalgic, crispy, weird, all of it. Plus some of the deepest and bittersweet relationship stuff we've had so far. Please enjoy!!

Dave Holmes (no relation, MTV, A Drink With Dave, comedy) is the greatest. Just one of the funniest and nicest guys you'd ever want to meet AND he lost that MTV VJ competition to that weird Jesse guy! Of course, Pete asks about that and learns that Dave is asked about that on the daily. So, needless to say: weird. Also, lots of sexy sex talk for you sex people out there, getting all sexy. GET CRISPY WEIRDOS!

Comic giant Paul F. Tompkins comes by to talk about so much more than just his role in There WIll Be Blood, but let's be honest: you can't be in Pete's favorite film and have it NOT come up. Then, comedy. Then, sex. Then who knows. We get weird. WEIRD. And well dressed!

Bill loves to break chops, but as you will see, he is actually one of the nicest guys Pete knows and was someone who was incredibly helpful to Pete in the early stages of his standup career. So, like most episodes, Pete does his best to recreate helpful, funny and wonderful conversations they've had to share with weirdos everywhere. Oh, and the funniest anti-marriage rant that's ever been recorded. So... look forward to that!

Pete sits down with one of his best fwendz in the world, Emily Gordon, writer/blogger/producer and wife to one of Pete's other best fwendz in the world, Kumail Nanjiani, and breaks just about everything Pete cares about wide open: life, love, the whole deal. It's all in here. Pete says this is his favorite episode (although he admits he shouldn't play favorites) but "fuck it: this is the best." Get crispy, weirdos!!

Joe Mande is an internet rascal, comedian and Jew. What? He's Jewish. Why bring that up? Well, Pete and Joe talk about Judaism. That's why. See? Even the description is weird. Imagine what it's like inside... That's right, I consider listening to the podcast to be "inside." This intro, more or a foyer-type area. Get in there!

Pete sits down with his goofy goof friend Chris D'Elia (Whitney, comedy) to talk about how comedy can be silly, goofy and a third word that means silly or goofy as well as some real deep shit about psychology and crazy comedy thoughts for real. It's VERY crispy in there, weirdos. Be careful.

Pete sits down with two of his absolute favorite New Yorker cartoonists Matt Diffee and Alex Gregory to discuss hilariously and in depth-edly the intricate and complex world of cartooning. Comedy takes many forms, and this one is one of the weirdest. No sex or God talk here, rather an in-depth look at one of the strangest and most exclusive comedy-worlds Pete feels lucky to have ever infiltrated.

What could be weirder than having What The Fuck sit down with What The Heck? Do you really need a description? You're still reading this, so okay. "The incredible host of WTF sits down to make it weird. The only question is: will he say "keep it crispy" at the end?"

What’s weirder than Nick Kroll telling Pete his laugh is the absolute worst? Let’s just say Pete calls Nick a son-of-a-bitch like 40 times. And “vaginas dentata” is mentioned, if that’s a thing. And comedy, sex and God. Oh, and candy bars and growing up pretty well off.

Anthony Jeselnik (Comedy Central Presents, Comedy Central Roasts, CD "Shakespeare") is Anthony Jeselnik ALL THE TIME. This episode is a delightful and oddly honest and weird conversation about EGO (Pete and Anthony discuss at length their egos and the importance of a performers ego), confidence, voice, persona, weed, traveling first class, likability, and of course sex and God. Plus a bonus track from the unreleased UCB NY CD about, fittingly, bragging. Enjoy you weirdos!!

One of the funniest, quickest and most pick-up-huggable comedians ever gets super weird with his buddy Pete getting into blackout drinking, being older than he looks, Best Week Ever and the ethical conflict behind doing Last Comic Standing. Plus another standup track from Pete's UCB NY recordings (the never-released standup CD). CRISPY!

Fans of Family Guy and people curious about television writing, hilarious tweets and the usual weirdnesses of YMIW are in for a treat: Alec Sulkin is a writer for FG, a huge, hilarious twitter monster and a wonderful guest to delve into sex, God and comedy with.

Oh man. This is a weird one. Pete asks Sarah Silverman if she "tells herself she's a good person" and, I mean, that's in like the first minute. What more weirdness do you want?! How about Sarah talking about losing her virginity. I mean, this is all in under the four minute mark. Or new euphemisms for masturbation. Pete also overshares his virginity story and calls the Old Testament "your half of the Bible." God, this is a weird one. This is also the first ep where Pete shares a track from the lost "UCB Tapes," never-before-heard standup recordings from NYC.

Neal Brennan, who co-created the friggin' Chappelle Show for crying out loud (and is a great, hilarious standup, writer and director), has the best show biz stories in the world. He shared a ton of them here, as well as a couple of the things that make him incredibly weird. Neal, like past guests, is another brunch buddy and we've recreated the feel one of our many vegan feast chats here for you to enjoy. SO ENJOY. got it, weirdos?

Boy, if you like talking about comedy AND sex, this episode is for you. Definitely NSFW, NSFP (playgrounds), NSFDIACWYIL (driving in a car with your in-laws). NSFC (church). It gets super personal, super sexual and mildly sexy. Sex! Also, drugs. Also, loads of laughs with Pete's good friend and hilarious comedian Moshe Kasher.

BONUS EPISODE! What's weirder than a long talk with Dave Coulier? Like, for real, anything? Pete and Dave talk about getting-then-losing SNL, what Dave "pulled down" for Full House, Muppet Babies, sex, and God. Somehow it was both deep AND filled with the occasional fart noise. Weird.

It gets REAL weird with my longtime friend/movie star/rapper/weirdo T.J. Miller. We get into life-threatening brain surgery, the meaning of life and he makes me feel weird for being a TV writer. But in the best kind of way.

There's plenty weird about my hilarious friend Kumail Nanjiani to get the show started off right! I've been good friends with Kumail for ten years so we're able to go deep into his comedy (specifically how his early voice was so different from his style now), his marriage (Kumail is one of the few young, married comedians I know) and his thoughts on religion. Buckle up for weirdness!
