    Was flipping through the channels and came across the Opie and Jim channel. They were ripping on that fat chick from my fat life on TLC, it was kinda funny.
    Later on I went on to YT to look at the older O&A clips. Some good stuff, mainly them shitting on siriusxm and the wig.

    Anyone else listen ?

    It used to be a fun show but most of the good comics they had on regularly either moved to LA or died. Then Anthony got fired and the show died.

    I agree. It's still better than Stern, but it's on it's way out. They got the brother team that got fired from Letterman as producers, and one of them is always on mic. Radio death. Sad, because with Ant it was great. :banghead:

    Jimmy is really funny. Odd how show chemistry works- IMO Howard hasn't been as good without Artie, and I gotta say O&J aren't as good without that racist cracker Ant.

    I started listening about a year before anthony left. I grew to really enjoy it. Havent listened to O and J or the cumia podcast. Have listened to a bunch of older o and A on youtube though.

    There used to be a youtube channel called VideoOandA that had the radio show synched up with any kind of video they were refencing. It was great. One of my favorite was patrice and them ripping on Independence day with will smith. The channel got deleted a few months back. :(

    I basically started listening at the end of last week so i'm really behind. But they O&A seem to have patrice on more than stern. Also last week jim florentine, and nick dipalo, were on the 2 people that stern has turned against. One thing I like is they still have fairly unknown comedians, unlike wiggy who only focuses on celeb A-listers. Ellen, are you fucking kidding me ? He ripped on her years ago, along with Tyra, and Roise.

    But I guess that's what sellouts do.

    There's a near infinite amount of classic O&A on youtube. My favorite clip ever is Patrice O'neal clowning Gallagher:



    Hilarious.

    This is one of my favorite short clips. Patrice was always gold.

    I still laugh at the show quite a bit without Anthony there, he's a funny guy if he has Jim or another comedian to play off of, but I really was tired of the dude beating the race thing to fucking death. It seemed like every other day he was going on those fucking rants, and after a while it wasn't fun or funny anymore. I do miss him being on the show, but he's in a dark place. I'm not sure how it could have been reconciled really. Any ways, I like Opie and Jim well enought to listen often.

    I just started listening too since my Sirius All Access promo or whatever it's called for Stern ran out in my car. I never gave O&A a chance since I was a devout Stern fan but I kind of enjoy Opie and Jim, mainly bc of Jim because he's fucking hilarious.
    Everywhere I look on the web though everyone seems to hate Opie, I haven't such a universal hatred since Stern.

    Search YouTube for Jocktober and Scorch/OandA clips.

    Great way to get into them and figure out how their show works.

    Patrice making fun of Lady Gaga is also a good start to getting in to the show.

    The Scorch stuff is truly great radio, in part because O & A goofing on him is hilarious, but also because Scorch is fucking TERRIBLE, and yet he's a legend in his own mind. Also, Sam intenred for Scorch, so he's got the inside scoop.

    I enjoy his podcast. I'm catching up on the last years shows, I'm up to mid-January now.
    At work, it's diversity conference season ( I have to attend every single one) and his rants are keeping me sane.

    I wasn't offended by what he was saying, some of it was true, but I was certainly tired of hearing about it. As a daily listener it got tiresome, he would hijack up to an hour of the show and say the same shit he'd said a hundred times over. He needs to lay off the booze a little bit.

    I certainly understand how it would get old. There are days I turn it off for that reason.

    Some of my favorite VideO&As are them watching old PSA and educational videos from the 50's. Ant's commentary is pure gold IMO. I hope some of them can still be found.

    Old O&A is great. Don't buy into that shit Howard was saying about them ripping him off.
