"This show is the best thing I've ever done, and if it never stopped I'd be fine with it,â€ť says D.J. Buckley. â€śLast year, I got to see a lot of funny comics and great people come together to work on something none of us could have accomplished by ourselves, and I think this year will be even better since we actually know what we're doing this time.â€ť
"Itâ€™s the greatest dumbest thing weâ€™ve ever done twice,â€ť Chad Riden smirks. â€śIf you asked me that old guidance counselor question, 'if you could do anything in the world, what would you rather be doing right now?' the answer would always be 'a stand-up comedy show.' We figured out a way to be able to do comedy all day, every day and it was a dream come true. I've missed the first show ever since we ended it and I'm really excited to be doing it again. Maybe this time we just won't ever stop. Nobody can ever beat our record if our show never ends.â€ť
