Monster Party

What better way to scare away the horror that was 2014, and lure in the hopefully less horrible 2015, than with a MONSTER PARTY?!

JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, wish you all the best in the coming new year. But as we all know, that's a long shot! So to better prepare you for a crappier tomorrow, Monster Party welcomes acclaimed comedian/actor/force of nature, RICK OVERTON, to discuss this episode's topic...DYSTOPION FUTURES! You know, like the one we're living in now!

Future imperfect has never been so perfect for a lively sci-fi debate that includes Robocop's marriage problems, cloak fashion in The Omega Man, some Logan's Run "Love Shop" acapella, and a Bladerunner/Air Force One/Stand And Deliver mash-up that's the bee's knees! Wait, are bees extinct yet?

Happy Dystopian New Year Monster Partiers!

MONSTER PARTY is back with a vengeance! Specifically, a vengeance against that movie you think is great but we don't.

In an enlightening, informative, and inevitably abusive holiday episode called... I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU LIKED THAT!, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, make it clear, they really can't believe you liked that.

But what would a Monster Party podcast about hating things other people like without some lambs to the slaughter. Introducing fresh lambs, power nerd couple NADIA & BEN ROBERTSON, two intelligent, thoughtful, funny people who have the gall to defend the movie PROMETHEUS...and actually do a pretty admirable job. Seriously!

Of course the Robertson's eloquence and charm could not stop the usual verbal piling on....or the physical piling on.

You get that many angry drunks in a room, s**t happens!

When there's no more room in hell, the dead will cheer themselves up with another episode of MONSTER PARTY!

Tempted by the smell of fresh brains and martinis, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, climb out of their graves to take on the undead cultural phenomenom that is ZOMBIES! "But Monster Partiers" you may ask, "can you possibly make this dis-corpse a bit sexier?" To which we answer, "Done!"

MONSTER PARTY is proud to welcome MEGHAN CHADEAYNE and RICKY BIRD, the star and director of the hit short film, NAKED ZOMBIE GIRL! Now if you don't want to see a film with a title like that, something has died in you, and unlike a zombie, it's not coming back. In this episode, the gal and ghouls duke it out over topics like slow zombies vs. fast zombies, zombies vs. farmhouses, why bad things tend to happen when Brad Pitt shows up, and how fighting zombies in the nude can be empowering.

Like we have to tell you that!

Wipe away those post-Halloween blues with another electrifying episode of MONSTER PARTY!

Accompany JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN LARRY STROTHE and MATT WEINHOLD, as they take a steamy excursion into SEX, HORROR, and the amazing world of JEWEL SHEPARD!

The eternally gorgeous Ms. Shepard has starred in such MONSTER PARTY favorites as “Hollywood Hot Tubs” and the horror/comedy classic “The Return of the Living Dead”, and brings her provocative, stream of consciousness style to this risqué soiree. Along with sexy horror talk, hear Jewel’s tales of bowling with Phil Spector, Herschell Gordon Lewis’ garage, and why some breasts require a coaster! 

We know…we had you at “coaster”.

MONSTER PARTY has scheduled you a FRIGHT PHYSICAL!

JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE and MATT WEINHOLD, have laced up their labcoats and started tampering with the laws of man and God! The topic is... MAD DOCTORS!!! Those twisted scientists whose theories are always the cause of laughter at the academy. But to be fair, the gang at the academy are easy laughers.

Aiding in this abominable audio experiment is writer/director (MONSTER MAKERS, SANTA JR.) and fellow podcaster (SUCCOTASH:THE COMEDY PODCAST PODCAST) MARC HERSHON, a man still wanted for questioning by his hometown's burgermeister.

Listen in as they dissect the questionable parenting skills of Victor Frankenstein, the attempts of Marlon Brando to save/destroy "The Island of Doctor Moreau", the sweet, sweet sounds of RE-ANIMATOR: THE MUSICAL (Seriously!), and why "The Human Centipede" may not be for everyone. And by everyone, that means Larry.

Get ready to slam back a triple shot of sexy, followed by a super scary chaser! It's the return of MONSTER PARTY!

The hotness of this podcast finally reaches its boiling point as JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, are graced by the delightful and dazzling presence of Playboy's 2013 Playmate of the Year... RAQUEL POMPLUN! That's right... THE PLAYMATE OF THE FRICKIN' YEAR!

MONSTER PARTY has a horror hootenanny coming your way because this time, the subject is... BACKWOODS PSYCHOS! And who better to help us face these murderous mountain menaces than our second guest, writer/director/producer of the upcoming horror spectacular, MUCK (FYI: Raquel has already been cast for the sequel), STEVE WOLSH! Prepare yourself for chainsaw massacres, hills that have eyes, Ned Beatty's famous animal impressions, and the reason why most Monster Partiers tend to avoid camping.

Listen, for Muck's sake!

MONSTER PARTY once again wreaks havoc on the ears of the living with this new episode, saluting those sherpas of shock, the heroes of horrific hyjinks... HORROR HOSTS!!!

JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, welcome the multi-talented JOHN MATTA, to praise such praiseworthy late night iconoclasts as Vampira, Chilly Billy, Zacherley, Bob Wilkins, John Stanley, Elvira, Count Floyd, Peter Vincent (Friiight Niiiight!) Ghoulardi, The Ghoul, Svengoolieand even Dana Ghould! Well, that's the way he should spell it.

Of course they talk about a host of other hosts, but may have have missed your favorite. Why not give this show a listen and then get mad at them? Anger is power! Ask Larry and Matt!

For this somewhat personal, and rather intoxicated episode of MONSTER PARTY, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, reveal their horror/sci-fi fan "origin stories"!

Find out what turned four apparently normal kids into the raving, die-hard nerds they are today. Shriek in terror at stories of creative sibling abuse! Listen in shock to tales of sex, drugs, rock n' roll, and the horror of living in a world without ebay! And can your heart handle James describing the day Woody Allen challenged Godzilla?!

It probably can.

Yes, there is something wrong with your television set. It's scaring the HELL out of you!

In this episode of MONSTER PARTY, JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, raise a glass to... HORROR TV!!! 

But what would this Monster Party be without our special guest (and designated driver), voice actor royalty and everything cool expert... WALLY WINGERT!

Wally's worked on almost every cartoon/video game you can think of, and for years was the voice of "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno"! This time, he's using all his vocal skills to get a word in edgewise as we celebrate such TV frights as The Night Gallery, Kolchak: The Night Stalker, Dark Shadows, The Walking Dead, and a bunch of 1970's TV movies you're about to be very happy we're turning you on to.

Oh, and there's some arguing.
