The Grawlix Saves The World

The Grawlix Saves The World

Bettering the world by bettering ourselves! Comedians Adam Cayton-Holland, Ben Roy, and Andrew Orvedahl (stars of the sitcom television series "Those Who Can't" on Hulu) take a passive-aggressive look at their daily lives and then assign one other self-improvement or wellness challenges to address their issues. Once they've completed the challenge, the boys come back into the studio to review their experience, offer advice to listeners, and declare whether or not the challenge is good for the world. And because laughter definitely makes the world a better place, every episode features stand-up comedy clips from their renowned 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. A proud part of the Starburns Audio network. Ad-free episodes and bonus content available at patreon.com/grawlixsaves
