The Grawlix Saves The World

Bettering the world by bettering ourselves!

Each hour-long episode includes standup comedy clips from national touring comedians at the group’s acclaimed live monthly show in Denver, Colorado. A proud part of the Starburns Audio Network.

Well sir, it's the holiday season and here at Grawlix GloboCorp LTD that can only mean one thing—our annual company holiday party. A raucous bacchanal of EDM, brotherhood, and pure, unfiltered sexual energy. You know, the holidays. As if that wasn't enough, the boys attempt a baking challenge, each presenting their pastries for the appraisal of the Grawlix board of directors. Who will win? Who will even survive? The answers...

The holidays can be tricky for anyone, WHAT WITH THE OMNIPRESENT JUDGEMENT OF THE ALL-KNOWING CHRIST KING. And because The Grawlix Saves the World has been (and always will be) a vengeful Old Testament type of podcast, the boys challenge one another to create holiday self-care kits—three items that bring them comfort and joy—to help them navigate the trials and tribulations of Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Solstice, Bo...

If you're a fan of the pod, you know that Andrew and Adam have been going pretty hard at ole Ben Roy lately with a string of challenges designed to make him face his fears.

The boys give themselves one week to watch three films: The Descent, Gaia, and The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Andrew, wh...

Behold! It's another episode of our pod within the pod, Boi Crazy! Baseball season has come to an end and the World Series is underway—far away—which has us feeling wistful for those hunktastic homerun heroes of the Colorado Rockies in the 1990s, the Blake Street Bombers. In this very important and extremely necessary episode of Boi Crazy, we earnestly objectify baseball legends Larry Walker, Andrés Galarraga, Vinny Castillo, D...

Live podcast episode! We eat exotic mountain meats cooked by Producer Ron and Ben's son Milo! Yes, even Ben, who's a vegetarian! Earlier this month, we were invited to perform at the opening weekend at TACAW (The Arts Campus at Willits), an amazing new venue north of Aspen in Basalt, Colorado. The mountain peaks were dusted with snow, and the aspen leaves were popping off, and we Grawlix three were just feeling, like, reall...

If there's one thing that The Grawlix Saves the World is about, it's friends helping friends overcome. We always strive to provide a helping hand to one another, so that we may better surmount difficult, emotional hurdles. However, this episode features none of that. Andrew and Adam find out Ben is afraid of rollercoasters, so they just make him ride one, like sadistic, unlicensed therapists. Featuring standup comedy clips ...

If you could write a letter to your adolescent self—a missive from the future to a younger, impressionable you—what would you say? And would you read that letter in front of an audience, and then let it be judged by your comedian friends Rory Scovel and Daniel Van Kirk, hosts of the amazing Pen Pals podcast?! The Grawlix boys would. And the result is a live show for the ages.  Featuring standup comedy from Ester Steinberg and David...

Eating healthy is hard. Eating healthy on a road trip—or as a traveling comedian—is damn near impossible. The boys discuss their dietary strategies while touring and their top breakfast, lunch, and dinner choices for the approval/judgement of famed fast-food lobbyist Troy Walker (Denver native and writer for Jimmy Kimmel Live!).  Also featuring standup comedy clips from Troy!
