Red Bull is being sued for false advertisement because apparently their product doesn’t actually give you wings. Pretty sure we all knew that, but Benjamin Careathers did not and he is quite unhappy about it. 

Rather than pay exorbitant court fees, Red Bull decided to settle outside of court and elected to instead give everyone who has ever bought their product in the last 12 years $10. To collect your payout all you have to do is go to their website. You don’t even need proof of purchase!

How many people work on The New Show?

On the daily production we have 4 aside from me

Josh is our Associate Producer, he handles most of the production scheduling elements and organizes all communication that has to do with our show.

Braith is our Editor, he edits my words and face and stays much later than is probably fair to ask of him.

Chris is technically a web producer for Revision 3 but he writes and researches the pieces with me and tells me what’s funny or not.

Molly is technically part of the audience development team but she manages a lot of the social media accounts and tells us what videos did well and which ones did not so that we can make more good videos and less shitty videos.

Reading anything interesting at the moment? If not maybe just a favorite book or 2?

I bought into the hype and am reading Gone Girl. I can’t stop picturing Ben Affleck. I keep wondering what Batman is doing in Missouri… 

Can you explain to me what a latke is? Because it sounds like it's delicious yet it also sounds like the noise my grandfather used to make when he was clearing his throat. So which is it?

It’s not one of those exclusively. I will say, that this is my favorite out of the two:

I love your new show but I gotta say it's just not the same as Sourcefed. Sad that it had to come to an end. But yeah congrats on The New Show and I hope the absolute best for it.

Thank you.

And trust me when I say that if I tried to make it the same as SourceFed it would feel ROUGH. SourceFed was a group of friends recounting news stories and playing around, that’s where the magic comes from and it’s fun to watch. It also took about a year to find that groove.

Think of this as an early stage of a project that’s still looking for its voice. I think we’ve taken huge steps the past two weeks toward finding that voice, and I’m very interested to hear what the viewers think. It’s so young all input is listened to and appreciated.

TL;DR: Watch the show, it’s getting better.

Is there anyone that inspires you in your comedy? I feel you've got a good mix and remind me of a good late night show host, potentially.

So many inspirations. Robin Williams, Jim Carey, and Adam Sandler in my formative years. Stephen Colbert and Conan O’Brien, in my intellectual years. And now I’m really looking at Pete Holmes and John Oliver. Mostly because Pete’s podcast is incredible and the Internet won’t stop shoving John Oliver down my throat (nor should they).

How tall are you, sir?
