El Grawlix Salva La Idioma

Adam once considered himself fluent in Spanish. Ben and Andrew, not at all. But that doesn't mean all three of our intrepid Grawlix heroes can't use a week-long refresher course on the second most commonly spoken language in the US. Join them on un viaje hispanohablante!  Featuring a thirteen-year-…

Sax That Dagger

Setting out to answer that age-old question, "does weed make you more creative?" Andrew, Adam and Ben celebrate that oh-so-Colorado holiday of 4/20 by saxing a few daggers and then taking creativity tests administered by Producer Ron. The results are very, very stupid.  Featuring standup clips from…

Boi Crazy: Presidential Assassins

That's right! It's another brand-spanking new episode of Boi Crazy, and inarguably our most batshit episode to date!  This time, we rank the hunkiness of US presidential assassins—and yes, we included an attempted assassin as well. Duh. Enjoy this free mini episode and then join our Patreon , whe…

All Apologies

We've all got moments we're not proud of. Times we were dicks. Times we were completely wrong in our thinking. Times when we were...too drunk. And sometimes it helps to talk about those moments, and apologize for them. Because, undoubtedly, if more people apologized when they were in the wrong, the…

For Whom the Bell Tocks (with Steph Tolev)

Remember our first episode ? The one where we swore off social media for a week? Well forget all that. For this episode, we throw our respective hats into the TikTok ring to see if as comics we should be embracing new-fangled forms of expression and self-promotion. And we invite none-other-than hi…

Hey, It'd Be Cool If You Didn't Talk So Much!

In what is surely a podcast first, three standup comics vow to be better listeners rather than just wait for their turn to talk. Andrew and Adam put into practice helpful listening tips while Ben takes a vow of silence for an entire week, resulting in a palpable dip in global jiu-jitsu chatter.  …

Operation Stop Being Such An Uggo

Look there's just no beating around the bush: The Grawlix are a bunch of fucking uggos. We're just butt. And the pandemic ain't helping. So we decided to take a week to practice some proper facial skin care—and we reached out to Arbonne Regional Sales Champion Kyle Kinane for help. Featuring stan…

The Grawlix Saves the Zodiac

Starting the year off right, Adam, Andrew, and Ben decide to chuck their pesky free will out the window and let the universe tell them how to live—specifically by putting into action whatever vagaries their daily horoscopes have in store for them. Spoiler alert: We all buy Bitcoin! Learn more abo…

Boi Crazy: Top Gun

In a move that is just so Andrew, he picks the movie, "Top Gun," for his first time at the Boi Crazy wheel. "But Andrew," we said. "They are men, not teen hunks." "Yes," Andrew responded. "But they helped turn us from Bois into men." And there's just no arguing with that. The rest is Boi Crazy hi…

Secret Satan

Typically the Grawlix GloboCorp company holiday party is a fête for the ages! We break into one of those storage PODS and smoke cigarettes until we all get headaches, just like in the bible! This year pandemic restrictions have us homebound, so we celebrate the only way we can—with secret present d…

Got 'Gotchi? (with Maria Thayer)

Remember Tamagotchis? Those egg-like keychains that were actually little digital lives that you had to take care of? The ones that were so popular in the 1990s? The ones that shit and eat and need medicine and stimulation and discipline? The boys sure do! The boys and special guest Maria Thayer …

Challenge Accepted

The Grawlix Get Political

With one week—ONE WEEK—left until the presidential election, Andrew, Adam and Ben hash it out and then decide to do something politically proactive every day for a week. Will the Grawlix actually maybe save the world this week?! Only November 3rd will tell! Or a protracted legal dispute thereafter.…

Cannonball Scoot

It was Gandhi who said, "If you hate something, try it, and maybe your attitude will change." And even though we just invented that quote for Gandhi, it feels right in his wheelhouse.

Meditation Nation

Is meditation just a trick pulled by creepy, crystal-worshiping aging hippies to skeeze on college Buddhist chicks? Or is it actually a way to set your mind at ease and channel some inner peace? The boys try it every day for a week to find out. Featuring standup clips from the eternally amazing Em…

Lighten Your Load

If you love someone, let them go. If you love something, grow up. It's an inanimate object. Life is about experiences, not things. Stop keeping so much shit in your house.

Personality Plus

In an effort to understand one another from the inside out—but not in a disgusting way—Andrew, Adam, and Ben take personality tests to find out once and for all whether they're assholes or just wired a certain way. Spoiler alert: It's both!  Featuring standup clips from Phoebe Bottoms and Chris …

Float On

In an attempt to get in touch with their inner selves, the boys decide to give sensory-deprivation salt tanks a go. No light. No sound.

The Art of Correspondence (with Rory Scovel)

Only In Dreams

Ever wanted to really get into the brains of Andrew, Adam, and Ben? Really delve into those respective subconsciouses and see what makes the fellers tick? Of course you haven't. It's a hellscape in there—a swirling Hieronymus Bosch painting of dick jokes and insecurity. Which on second thought actu…

Yoga Fire, Yoga Flame!

Ben, Adam, and Andrew are no strangers to exercise. We need not tell you this. You see them coming down the block, take in those Grawlix-boy physiques, lower your shades and are all like, "Damn, girl. Damn." But hot yoga is something else entirely. It's yoga. At a 105 degrees. And it's so damn hard…
