Kevin and Kornflake are finally back in Chickentown, just in time for Jackie Chan Day. (We’re celebrating by doing our own stunt work throughout the entire podcast.) This week: An 80s-themed concert report, featuring Katrina (without the Waves) and Howard Jones (with a keytar); reviews of comics we found at
Live from Chickentown, Kevin and Kornflake sip nasty black coffee and talk about silly & geeky things.
Frequent subjects include: Saturday morning cartoons, Dr. Demento-style funny music, TV and movies of the 1970s and 1980s, comic books, classic video games, and, uh, chickens. (We like chickens.) There’s also lots of convention talk, as we regularly attend DragonCon, MarsCon, and other nerdy gatherings. We’re frightened and confused. Join us!

Still live from Minnesota, it’s the shocking conclusion of our MarsCon coverage! We thought we’d end the convention by stuffing a bunch of crazy people into a hotel room. We did it for science. Joining us were: Blasted Bill, Ed, Bob, Tony Goldmark, Break Man Z, Mr. Tuesday, Angela, Jared,
Live from Minnesota, our MarsCon coverage continues! First Kevin and Kornflake are joined by Ed, the other half of The Sponge Awareness Foundation! (We get Ed’s first impressions of the insanity that is MarsCon, and we learn the final fate of the tuba from the previous night’s SAF concert.) Next
This week on The Flopcast: Kevin and Kornflake have always secretly dreamed of being Match Game host Gene Rayburn. (Don’t pretend you haven’t too, you weirdo.) And so for our live version of The Flopcast at MarsCon last week, we decided to play “The Flop Game”! We don’t have Charles
Kevin and Kornflake are far from Chickentown Studios this week, because it’s time for MarsCon! So instead of a regular show, here’s something special we’ve been saving for you. A few months back, while Kornflake was out of town (or so we thought), Kevin and the great Luke Ski spent
The Mayor of Chickentown reports on the Gallifrey One convention (where she met a Doctor Who-themed Muppet) and Rebecca Watson’s Quiz-o-Tron (where Mike Phirman had to count his chickens); during an impromptu Top 4 ½ List of frozen foods, we vaguely recall Hot Bites, Otter Pops, and horrifying school lunches; Howard
Next week, assuming we’re not grounded by a horrifying blizzard (place your bets now), Kevin and Kornflake shall return to Bloomington, Minnesota for MarsCon! In addition to seeing some of our favorite funny musicians, we’ll be hosting a game show-style live version of the Flopcast, and Kornflake will be back
This week on The Flopcast: Kevin and Kornflake celebrate National Drink Wine Day by popping open a bottle of Rex Goliath Pinot Noir… and the Mayor of Chickentown crashes into the studio like Kool-Aid Man to join us. A coincidence? Perhaps. Anyway, a wine-fueled round of “The Pudding Pages” leads
There comes a time for Kevin and Kornflake to devote the whole stupid show to the 30th anniversary of “We Are the World” by USA for Africa! We’re shameless 80s geeks, our Lionel Richie mugs are loaded with nasty black coffee, and we don’t care how long this takes. We
Chickentown is completely buried in snow, but Kevin and Kornflake tunneled and/or tauntauned their way into the studio, just for you. This week Kevin reports on a Niki Luparelli show (Niki can sing like Marilyn, play the ukulele, hula hoop, and remove your tattoo, possibly all at once) and “Pulp
Kevin and Kornflake celebrate Puzzle Day by dressing like the Riddler (or not); a recent production of the Mayor’s favorite musical features hula hoops, chicken people, and the sister of the guy who starred in Automan; thanks to the Pudding Pages, we’re talking about Jim Carrey (Kornflake likes The Truman
In a “very special episode” (as they say in annoying network promos), Kevin, Kornflake, and the Mayor look back on those we lost in 2014 (including folks from movies, TV, radio, and comics — our usual favorite subjects). But instead of getting all miserable (which is more like our plan
