On this special episode of Piecing It Together, comedian Jason Harris joins me to discuss two of the most talked about comedies of the year: Booksmart from director Olivia Wilde and Good Boys from director Gene Stupnitsky (and produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg), as well as the classic comedy they’re both so clearly inspired by, Greg Mottola’s Superbad. We talk about what works, what doesn’t, and get into some puzzle pieces for all three of them.
On the 34th episode of Piecing It Together, returning co-host Josh Bell and I discuss a24’s Never Goin’ Back, a funny, crazy new comedy about the misadventures of two young female stoners. It’s about youth, friendship, drugs and bodily functions. We had a great time talking about it. Puzzle pieces include Beavis & Butthead, Ghost World, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and a bunch of other a24 films.
On the 25th episode of Piecing It Together, first time co-host Jason Harris and I discuss Eighth Grade, the sometimes hilarious, sometimes heart-felt new film from A24. The film from comedian and first time writer/director Bo Burnham follows 13 year old Kayla as she deals with Eighth Grade, growing up in today’s world and the always scary onset of High School, all while continuing to grow her YouTube video series. Puzzle pieces include Welcome to the Dollhouse, American Pie, Ingrid Goes West and The Squid & The Whale.
