Pop Culture Happy Hour: The Menace Of Laughter And A Life-Saving Allergy

October 22nd, 2010

Episode 105 of 587 episodes

On this week's Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Trey Graham, Stephen Thompson and Glen Weldon consider the surprisingly negative effects of having an audience right there laughing when you're trying to do comedy, as was the case with 30 Rock's recent live episode. Then a talk about a cheese allergy that just might give one man his life back on Freaky Eaters. Plus more Regrettable Television Pop Quiz and Things Making Us Happy including a musical tribute to Marshall Crenshaw.
