IT'S THE BATTLE OF THE CENTURY...ONE MORE TIME!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, once again gather beloved characters from horror, sci-fi, and fantasy, and pit them against each other! If you haven't already guessed our topic by the reading the title of this episode, we proudly present... WHO WOULD WIN? VOL. 4!!!
"WHO WOULD WIN?" is one of the most popular and requested MONSTER PARTY topics, and here's why? We all come up with a list of various genre mashups (ex. Thanos vs. Santa Claus), then debate who would win in a hypothetical fight. These beastly battles can can cross time, franchises, movies, television, and sometimes, even logic. Two characters go into a room...one comes out. And we even argue over the merits of the room!
Joining us for this fight we're calling,"THE FRAY OFF SHERMAN WAY", is long time friend of the show, and a formidable creature in and of himself. It's THE PITBULL OF COMEDY... BOBBY SLAYTON! (ED WOOD, WONDER WHEEL, CRISIS IN SIX SCENES, THE RAT PACK, DREAMGIRLS, THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JOHNNY CARSON, LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON)
Feel free to contact us with a "WHO WOULD WIN?" of your own, and who knows, we may use it in an upcoming episode!
BONUS: Stick around after the end music and ouuttakes, for yet another G FEST MOMENT, recorded at the 2018 G FEST CONVENTION in CHICAGO. This time, we chat with father and son monster suit making team... MATT & SIG TICHOTA! Matt? Can you adopt us?
