After a short hiatus, the best Entourage podcast on the Internet – Oh Yeah, Oh Yeah – is back with a new season and an awesome lead off guest! Comedian Chris Distefano joined me to discuss the Season 2 Premiere The Boys Are Back in Town and he instantly became one of the best guests we’ve ever had.
Chris gave his real time reaction to the Odell Beckham Jr. trade, discussed his favorite pizza and bagel places in NYC and told an incredible anecdote about the time he was invited to Derek Jeter’s birthday party. Trust me, you won’t want to miss hearing this story. It involves rapper Mos Def, human sized birdcages and wiffle ball bats, I’ll leave it at that.
We also dove deep on the boys from Queens, who return to LA after shooting on Queens Boulevard has been completed. We discussed Turtle’s questionable fashion choice of wearing a personalized New York Giants jersey to Ari’s office and the introduction of a legendary character in the Entourage universe, LLOYD!!!! Other topics include his relationship to stars Jeremy Piven and Jerry Ferrara, our favorite celebrity cameo from the episode and the show’s incredible soundtrack.
I asked Chris to join not only because he is one of the funniest comedians working today, but because the climax of this week’s episode is when Turtle has the boys’ favorite NYC food overnighted to them (using Ari’s DHL number). I wanted to have a true blue New Yorker on to see if the Entourage writers got it right. Would a couple of guys from Queens really be missing Eddie’s Pizza, H&H Bagels and Carnegie Knishes? His answers didn’t disappoint.
