Barley & Me

Episode 41: Christmas Bottle Share at Sail Inn Grotto w/ Comedians Stephen Furey, Garrett Boatman, Luke Soin, Emma Haney & Becky Lynn

January 10, 2017

Host Ben Rice conducts a Christmas bottle share with some comedian friends at West Sacramento restaurant Sail Inn Grotto. Guests Stephen Furey (The Comedy Store), Garrett Boatman (retired), Luke Soin (Epic Tiki and The Sexy Podcast), Emma Haney (Fem Dom Com), and Becky Lynn (Hot Drunk Sets) join us, with Stephen Furey leading the charge as we rate the best and worst of: Candy! Cookies! White Elephant Gifts! Beer! Plus Garrett and Ben beef with BevMo, Luke explains how he learned to be intolerant of gluten (the answer might surprise you), and why everyone in comedy hates the word "skit." Plus a look back at the surprising oeuvre of Dane Cook and made-up facts about your favorite young adult novelists. Enjoy episode 41 of Barley & Me!
