The Basement Lounge

The Basement Lounge

Hosted by a couple of foul-mouthed comedians that want to find a funny light in a dark place, The Basement Lounge will give you the everyman's view of a world gone mad. We'll make you laugh, we'll make you think, and most importantly, we'll make you question our sanity.

Honest opinions and shameless plugs.

Think Joe Rogan without the douche factor.

Grab a drink, pull up a chair, and settle in with us on The Basement Lounge.
