Monster Party

MONSTER PARTY ends the year with an episode that is NEVER NOT FUNNY...or FRIGHTENING!

JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD make your holiday dreams come true by welcoming comedic force of nature and host of the trailblazing podcast, NEVER NOT FUNNY... JIMMY PARDO!!! Since Jimmy is allergic to MW's familiars, the guys set up in his studio, and challenged him to answer the question, "WHY AREN'T YOU A BIGGER NERD?" Sure, Mr. Pardo enjoys a good PLANET OF THE APES film, or cheering on "The Shape" in the HALLOWEEN film series. But, where is his action figure shelf?! Where is his Klingon dictionary?! Why doesn't he own a Lawgiver statue?! And would it kill him to wear some Stormtrooper armor from time to time?! C'mon Jimmy, we know you can do better!!

Help MONSTER PARTY expunge the fetid stench of 2016, with this attempt to give a celebrated comedian, the ultimate nerd makeover! 

Next year...MONSTER PARTY may be coming for YOU!

MONSTER PARTY celebrates the granddaddy of horror/fantasy/sci-fi fandom, and his remarkable legacy! 

JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, ring in the holidays with a topic that should touch the palpitating heart of every Monsterpartier... FORRY ACKERMAN & THE MONSTER KID GENERATION! In case you've been hiding under a gravestone, the late FORREST J ACKERMAN was a science fiction writer, literary agent, and editor of the first ongoing monster magazine, FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND! Known as Uncle Forry to his friends, Ackerman was one of the most active proponents of fantastic films and fiction, and practically single handedly started science fiction fandom! Forry was also known for his massive collection of genre treasures, and would often give fans a tour of the "Ackermansion." 

Helping us to understand the impact that Forry left on a generation is writer/FX artist/Polynesian entertainer/studio vocalist/dark ride designer...JOE MOE! Joe took care or Forry during the last years of his life, and gives us a unique perspective on the man, as well doing the definitive Forrest J Ackerman impression!

If that were not enough, the gang is also joined by actress BARBARA LEIGH, star of such films as PRETTY MAIDS ALL IN A ROW, JUNIOR BONNER (alongside her then boyfriend Steve McQueen), and the cult classic TERMINAL ISLAND. But, Barbara may be best known by horror fans, as the first and best, live action cover model for VAMPIRELLA magazine! 

And don't miss out on our special new segment: THE MONSTER PARTY GIFT GIVING GUIDE!

To paraphrase Uncle Forry, "Take this podcast home monster kids, you will love it!"
