DCMS Episode 637: My Favorite Summer... The Comedies

My favorite summer continues and this week, it's time to get funny with the ha-ha... because comedies are one of the most important genre of all. Because we love to laugh at the stupid, at the smart, at the dark, at the iconic, and at the silly. 

Returning to the show after being our co-announcer and narrator at this year's Deucie Awards, The Amish Girl herself Jenn Novotny brings all the smile and humor... as well as a rant on an innocent actress and her Oscar winning performance.

First up, a little Denzel game, and catching up with Jenn and her world travels. 

Then, Mikey, d$, and #XLessDrEarl, along with Jenn, give their own top ten fave comedies of all time, from movies they grew up with to recent flicks to the legendary to the downright dumb.  

Mo Money?  You're welcome.
