Monster Party

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.

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!

In this new episode, James Gonis, Larry Strothe, Matt Weinhold, Shawn Sheridan (absent, but there in spirit), and special guest, actor/comedy writer/longtime chum, Ken Daly, revel in the amusement park magic of the DARK RIDE! We’re talkin’ haunted horror houses (Ken’s quite the expert on that one), Japan’s take on the sci-fi of Jules Verne, and that crazy Norwegian ride at Epcot that’s half travelogue/half scenes from the movie Trollhunter. It’s a doom buggy ride for your earholes.

The Monster Party rages on!

James Gonis, Shawn Sheridan, Larry Strothe, and Matt Weinhold  are joined by monster of comedy DANA GOULD as they breathe new life into those undead staples of horror...VAMPIRES!

In this spookily informative podcast, Monster Partiers James Gonis, Shawn Sheridan, Larry Strothe, and Matt Weinhold welcome comedy actor extrordinaire, David Anthony Higgins (Higgins Boys and Gruber, Ellen, Malcolm In The Middle, American Horror Story) to a lively discussion about Ghosts. This leads to some very kind words about "The Shining", some not so kind words about "Poltergeist", some unusual comments about "Casper", and then back to kind words about Dave's new show, "International Ghost Investigators: Hollywood Division", now airing on Direct TV's Audience. And the circle of anti-life is complete. Oh, the horror!
