Welp, we will say that this is the debut episode even though it's actually episode 5 but Kurtis and Andy are artists so they do whatever they want! The good news is this is a proper introduction to the boys with some secrets from behind the scenes of the Addicts Comedy Tour. Y'all get to find out how Kurtis and Andy met and started working together. Kurtis pops off and accuses Andy of making bad comedy deals that only exist in Kurtis's imagination. Lots of frustration and yelling in this episode with a discussion of moments of clarity, Mormonism and why Andy's dad shoots pelicans in the face!
Andy verbally abuses Kurtis for his poor living choices and the boys throw mad shade at other recovery podcasts. After the nonsense, Kurtis and Andy talk about how to stay healthy in recovery and how they're both failing miserably. Kurtis also talks about listening to his parents doing it.
Kurtis and Andy pop off about denial, health issues that accompany addiction, how to differentiate good friends from bad friends and the differences between slips and relapses. This episode is bananas.
Kurtis talks about his upbringing in So Cal and his days as a hardcore alcoholic. He also talks about his road to recovery and spins yarns about his glory days of doing stand-up in the 80s.
Debut episode #1: Andy's story.
Things get off to a contentious start as Andy and Kurtis show the world that even with long term recovery, they're still immature, emotional alcoholic - drug addicts. Things quickly turned around as Andy wins Kurtis's old grumpy spirit over with a heartfelt and entertaining account of his days in active addiction and recovery. This debut is straight lit yo.
