Monster Party (general)

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,... the 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, Svengoolie, and 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.

Get your stinkin’ ears listening, you damn dirty humans! This jam packed new episode of MONSTER PARTY is all about PLANET OF THE APES! Talking humans James Gonis, Shawn Sheridan,  Larry Strothe and Matt Weinhold, welcome back our comedy Lawgiver and “Apes” expert supreme, DANA GOULD, and knock back a few rounds of “grape juice plus”. Get ready for behind the scenes mayhem, Dana’s audience with Charlton Heston, how the ending of “Beneath” f**ked us all up, and why James would have ruined “Dawn”! IT’S A MADHOUSE… in the sense that we record this in a house and people often get angry.

COMIC CON 2014 ANYTHING GOES!

For this special 2014 San Diego Comic Con podcast, James Gonis, Shawn Sheridan, Larry Strothe, and Matt Weinhold throw the rules out the window and let demon booze decide where the conversation goes. We don't want to give away too much but let's just say that the film, "Free Enterprise", is revealed to be a malevolent force, capable of destroying friendships. And don't get us started on "The Big Bang Theory". Oops, too late!

Get ready for one of strangest Monster Party podcasts ever!

The topic is TIME TRAVEL and James Gonis, Shawn Sheridan, and Matt Weinhold, welcome super comedian and Late Show with Dave Letterman staple, Jake Johannsen, to explore the complexities of the time/space/booze continuum. Sadly, Larry Strothe could not join us (due to some good natured tampering with his time line that temporarily erased him from existence), but filling in is Matt’s lovely, intelligent and opinionated wife, Carolyn Ray Weinhold. After imbibing copious amounts of an experimental vodka, the conversation covers the greatest time travel films, whether Jake is actually female and from the future, and what exactly is a “taint”?

Monster party just got sexier, if that’s even possible!

This time out, James Gonis, Shawn Sheridan, Larry Strothe and Matt Weinhold, are graced by the loveliness of scream queen Max Wasa as they discuss…wait for it…SCREAM QUEENS! It’s a celebration of those tantalizing heroes and victims who are the staples of cinematic horror!  Oh, and it’s also a drinking game, created from our inability to be inebriated say, “scream queen”. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! In this episode, we also welcome vampire/zombie rapper Wayzay to the party. Let’s do this!
