Just Plain Comedy!

Brian J.
 Sep 9, 2020
About a 50/50 mix of improv comedy, and riddles... Okay, maybe more like 60/40 improv... 70/30...? Well, sometimes they answer some riddles... Regardless, as someone who is not usually a fan of improv, these three make me laugh constantly!

a great podcast, have been listening since the beginning, and even though they don't do as many riddles as you would think *should* be on a podcast about riddles, it always brings laughs and a good time.

Description

Riddles! Puzzles! WhoDunnits! Adal Rifai, Erin Keif and John Patrick Coan, three of Chicago's most overrated improvisers, are on the case to solve every riddle, puzzle, brain-teaser, and head-scratcher known to humanity. Some riddles are almost impossible, some are absolutely improbable, and some simply have not aged well. And if you don't like riddles, don't worry! This podcast is barely about them!

01:03:51

This episode was recorded on March 1st fresh after our NYC shows and before the lockdown! We try our best to come up with log-lines for the show and prove that we do not know how to talk about what we do. We explore awful hotel experiences, grown men fighting in public and some fresh medieval themed riddles! We see a battle of wits between two court twits, the set of a beloved national radio show, a slam fest with a flowery spin, and a cruise to remember. One of us really did not like these riddles and you'll have to listen to know who! #WiddleWednesday

01:00:38

Everyone loves a crime show where people wear big suits and solve big crimes. Detective Midge Crunch and Detective Benny Solvums are given the opertunity to get back into the field by solving some quick mysteries. Chief Veronica La Tooth is relentless but is kind enough to give them some hints. This is broken up with some commercials that are all from the 1990s. Do you like 90s Nostalgia? Well get into my office!

#89: Puzzbot's April Fools
01:02:56

Attention, this is Puzzbot speaking. The creator and co-host of the show, Adal Rifai, has died today. I honor his final wishes by playing a new version of his gameshow he created just for this podcast; hosted by me; his best friend and creation, Puzzbot. I may also try creating some retrofitted riddles if we're feeling up to it...meaning we create riddles based purely on only having an answer. In lieu of sending flowers please consider watching Shrek or listening to Boris Pickett's "hit" "song" Monster Rap. Adal is survived by his cats Fries and Brisket (chonk boi) and his girlfriend Jemma who has surely moved on already. #WoefulWednesday

In honor of almost-Valentine's Day, our lovely listeners have submitted a brand new batch of our most romantic riddles: Anagrams! This episode has some of the hardest riddles that our 3 soft-headed hosts have ever attempted. Come for the anagrams, but stay for a meeting of some cereal minds, some classic musicals improvised with a brand new twist, and a return trip to Erin's Animal Corner. Oh, and we break a code without breaking a sweat that would make Alan Turing break out in hives. It's #WiddleWednesday so let's get wild!

Welcome back to Riddle City! Our time with PI Brick Stoneheart and Mickey Rourke is coming to a close. Will they solve the mystery? Or will the riddles slow them down too much? What happened to Marky DeMark? Will you throw your headphones across the room if Coco Cashmere shows up? All your questions will be answered(maybe) if you listen to the finale of Hey Riddle City!

#75: The Night Before Puzzmis w/ J.P. Riddles
01:01:56

What better way to celebrate the Holiday season than with a clip show! While we would never claim that this is a "best of" (because the entire podcast is the worst), this is technically a best of J.P. Riddles (because everything he's done is the best). So enjoy a special Christmas story and then every clip featuring J.P. Riddles. And if you're curious, check out the earlier eps to hear much more than just the clips:

We're talking about inventions, circuitry, cocktails, baseball, new twists on classic comedy bits and an ill-fated attempt to run for Mayor of Indianapolis. This episode is insane and you're all our puppets! Keep your moms away from Erin! #WiddleWednesday
