The Grawlix Saves The World

The Grawlix Saves The World

A comedy podcast about making your world a better place! Standup comedians Adam Cayton-Holland, Ben Roy, and Andrew Orvedahl (a.k.a. The Grawlix, stars of the sitcom "Those Who Can't") make a sincere but hilarious attempt to better themselves and the world around them. Follow these three best friends and their special guests as they guide one another through the muddy waters of modern fame, choosing a creative lifestyle, parenting, mental illness, traumatic childhoods, getting older, and making the right choice when everything goes wrong. It's part advice podcast, part self-help podcast, and part dick joke factory. Get out your maps of Riff City, sound the Earnestness Horn, and join us for a weekly laugh at this old toilet world. For a guaranteed dose of positivity, each episode features good news from around the globe and standup comedy clips from the renowned Grawlix live show in Denver, Colorado, showcasing comics such as Josh Blue, Debra DiGiovanni, Shane Torres, Nikki Glaser, Kyle Kinane, Chanel Ali, Mo Welch, Sammy Obeid, Ian Karmel, David Gborie, and many, many more.
