Gobble Gobble!

This week join Tuong La  and Food pilgrims Geoff McBride, Jesse Preece, and Desiree Connors Warmington as they brace their stomachs for turkey-itis and rank Top 5 Thanksgiving Foods!

Ground Rules

  • Including Food and Beverages
  • Don’t have to nominate a specific recipe, however mentioning can support your argument
  • Acknowledge that one person’s Thanksgiving meal might be different than another. As long as its food that they have during Thanksgiving then it’s fair game to nominate.
  • Topping or sauces are separate nominations.
  • Making the food is not part of the consideration. We are more trying to think about if it’s something we would want to eat.
  • Each food nominated is nominated as if it is in the best prepared state. (ie: the perfect way to cook a Turkey)

On this episode of The Improv Punch Up Tuong La is back! Alas, when the boys are about to record their no doubt hilarious episode, the podcast feed is interrupted and hijacked by the Punch Up of the FUTURE! Instead of Leslie, Angus and Tuong listen as Skywalker Cserepy, Bloodflap and Tuong La Punch Up disastrous movies while they wait for the Sun to explode!

All joking aside The Improv Punch Up has been an absolute joy to produce for 50 EPISODES! We are so grateful to all of the people who joined us on the show and all of the people who gave it a listen along the way. Since we started the show we have had to move to different cities to pursue our passions. Because of this, it pains us to say that The Improv Punch Up will no longer be a regularly scheduled show. But fear not Punch Up fans, there are still many more Punch Ups to come! They will come when we are able to reunite and record together again.

Ground Rules

  • Wikipedia Definition:
    In botany, a fruit is the seed-bearing structure in flowering plants (also known as angiosperms) formed from the ovary after flowering.Fruits are the means by which angiosperms disseminate seeds.
  • Can bring samples to the table to make arguments
  • We take into consider the fruit in it’s peak ripeness. However, we also take into consideration how seasonal it is.
  • Must specify the type of fruit (ie What kind of Apples)
  • You don’t necessarily have to “eat” the fruit. Some fruits are used mainly for it’s juices in other meals.

This time on The Improv Punch Up we decided to show you the fans a peek behind the curtain!  When we have a guest on we usually do a practice scene or “Practice Punch Up” to get the creative  juices flowing. We tell the guests these won’t appear on the podcast but guess what…we lied! Because they are just too fun to keep locked away. Is this a shameless attempt to scrape together another episode or an inspiring look at our guests before the episode has begun? You decide!

History may have forgotten them, but we haven’t.

Thanks to the internet and some high school classes, there have been historical people and their accomplishments that have stood the test of time. However, most of the time there are amazing individuals who slip through the cracks and are forgotten forever….until now! This week join Tuong La and Wikipedia Wizards Sarah Finn, Catherine Ballachey, and Axandre Lemours who put their Googling skills to the test as they research and rank Top 5 Interesting People You’ve Never Heard About.

Ground Rules

  • No fictional people

  • They can be alive or dead
  • It’s people who the most part have never heard about
  • If they are sort of known it’s okay, they just have to be mostly unknown for the greater public
  • If a person nominated is known to the entire group, barring research for this podcast, then the table can reject the nomination and that person can nominate again

*Spoilers* Below is our Top 5 list from this episode as well as our own personal unordered  lists.

This week on The Improv Punch Up we have no guests so you know what that means…it’s time for a weird gimmick episode! This time the boys read a short story written by our very own Leslie Cserepy. In this version the boys tell the story of the brave Captain Thundercock and his crew as they land on Mars and are accosted by a strange and terrible creature. This story has more heart and shit than you’d expect!

It’s a classic episode where it’s just Tuong spitting off nonsense into a mic on this August’s Edition of Talkin’ Tuong! This month, Tuong gets Fast and Furious while talking about Hobbs & Shaw, gets geeky talking about ‘superheroes gone bad’ in The Boys, and laughs at children doing incredibly inappropriate things in Good Boys! Also things get raunchy in the PodCavern as the folks on the live chat want to Tuong to take off his shirt? Did he do it? Do people understand that this is mostly an audio medium? Listen and find out!

Tsck…pshh…fwshhhhhhhhh..fizzzzz

Hear that? That’s the satisfying sound you get when you pop open a fizzy drink of goodness that’s about to be chugged down. Over the years, there has been a plethora of flavoured, syrupy, sugary, carbonated/uncarbonated soft drinks that has hit the shelves – some great and some that make you question your life.  BUT as always there can be only five that reign supreme! Join Tuong La and Unhealthy Human Beings Angus MacDonald, Matt Barrow, and Leslie Cserepy as they bring drink samples to the table and make themselves nauseous as they rank Top 5 Soft Drinks!

Ground Rules

  • Must specify the brand AND the flavour
  • This is a samples episode. If you didn’t bring the sample then making your case will be exponentially harder

  • Definition for “soft drink” we are going for is as follows (credit to the Internet):  “Soft drink, any of a class of nonalcoholic beverages, usually but not necessarily carbonated, normally containing a natural or artificial sweetening agent, edible acids, natural or artificial flavours, and sometimes juice. Natural flavours are derived from fruits, nuts, berries, roots, herbs, and other plant sources. Coffee, tea, milk, cocoa, and undiluted fruit and vegetable juices are not considered soft drinks.”
  • If the drink is more “juice” than what the group is considered more of a “soft drink” than it does not count and that person has to renominate
