Episode 42: The Sanity Clauses

Official description: "Two Jews and a Brit celebrate Christmas and ring in the new year with our Marx Brothers hot takes!

"We like a film that most don’t, dis a famous artist, and suggest changes that will make you dance barefoot in our lemonade. And as a special treat, Noah tells how he risked his sanity and marriage to prepare for this episode.

"Name dropped in this episode: Richard Pryor, Rudolf Nureyev, Danny Kaye."
