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.

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