Hi, I'm Rick Glassman, and I'm a goofy guy and a cute boy. As a kid, I had debilitating OCD. I still have a lot of “things.” The title of my podcast “Take Your Shoes Off” is a microcosm of my need for control and order in a world that... keeps their shoes on. I created this podcast to showcase a more serious side, as I have conversations with some of the funniest and most interesting people in the world. I’ve learned the language of comedy in an attempt to survive this shoes-on world, so of course there will be some goofs and spoofs, but think of this podcast as you being a fly on the wall, as opposed to being an audience member in a theatre. Please, take your shoes off, and enjoy!
Brent Morin & Adam Ray
1:35:18ADAM RAY & BRENT MORIN join us for the most chaotic of episodes. The three comics sit down and do bits upon bits on top of bits, could you ask for anything more? (SORRY FOR THE DELAY ON YOUTUBE. LOTS OF EXTRA ANIMATIONS ON IT, SO IT WILL BE UP LATE MONDAY OR EARLY TUESDAY) Adam graces us with another barrage of unnecessary anecdotes, Brent reveals his true character, and Rick’s spill-paranoia peaks. We have another songwriting moment for Brent to show off his pipes and Rick to spit some bars. The group wonders what Brad Pitt calls his privates, if Kevin Bacon’s nudity was the real deal, and we get to meet the Shat Cat… As I (Betty) write this I really have no idea what happened in the episode, but its great. So if you like singing, burns, bits, bats, bears, and Battle Star Galactics (Hi, Rick here. I added the "Bears and Battle Star" joke because Betty only knows of the UK Office)... and the anxiety of every liquid possibly ruining Rick's rug... YOU’LL LOVE THIS EPISODE !

Lamorne Morris 4.0
1:26:58LAMORNE “I Rise” MORRIS brought his A-game to the couch this week! The actor and entrepreneur continues the theme of guests acknowledging how terrible the TYSO studio/home looks. Nonetheless, THEY RISE to produce this rap-filled-chaos of an episode that goes nowhere and everywhere. Rick enquires about Lamorne’s fitness regime and how he stays in shape, while the two ponder the age old question “are you funnier if you’re out of shape?” Our host offers up popsicles and corn dogs only to be rebuked, and they argue about whether or not Jay-Z still watches this podcast. Lamorne of course cannot show up without bringing his impression hat, and he gives us a near-perfect Jamie Foxx while recounting the story of how he knows the most talented man in Hollywood. They break down the role of “The Confident Guy” and even do an improv session which somehow turns into a tutorial on how to pick up chicks (poorly). Honestly the second half of this episode is basically ‘Hamilton’ in podcast form as the duo decide to freestyle rap pretty much everything. We’re still waiting on our royalty cheque from Meghan Trainor, so this week's sponsor is the brand you’ve heard Rick talk about more than any other: HELIX! Helix is offering up to 200 dollars off all mattress orders AND two free pillows for our listeners at http://helixsleep.com/tyso RICK GLASSMAN https://www.rickglassman.com https://www.patreon.com/takeyourshoesoff https://www.instagram.com/rickglassman https://discord.gg/Z2v4HTC LAMORNE MORRIS: INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/lamorne Lamorne 1.0: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZOtIVk3Lxs Lamorne 2.0: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpkLBvUPG_E Lamorne 3.0: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wwmR5QlZf8 Music Beats: https://www.instagram.com/jordanjameslife & https://www.instagram.com/theyarethejam #RickGlassman #LamorneMorris #HollywoodHello See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
2:25:01"Ladies and gentleman, it is my pleasure to introduce this next comedian. He’s sold out countless clubs, theaters, and stadiums across the globe. Platinum comedy Album. Teen Choice Award. Blockbuster films… and now his biggest achievement to date-- A GUEST ON TYSO! Please make sure your cell phones are off and put your Su-Fi's in the air... for DANE COOK!" The comedian, actor, and creator sits down for a cup of luke-warm tea while Rick enquires about him process, and how he’s able to kill at a set even when he’s physically or mentally drained. Dane recollects his origin story, growing up on stage with Dave Chapelle, moving to LA, and early career highlights. The conversation somehow goes everywhere and nowhere all at once as the hyperactive duo try and stay the course, but inevitably veer off into goblins, pants on fire, and some country singing. They discus why Dane didn’t come on the show earlier due to cancellations… and why rain isn’t always just rain… Dane passes on some insightful advice from his dad, the two discuss Steve Martin’s career, and why Dane has managed to pick himself out of any career rut.

Erik Griffin 7.0
1:40:42No introduction needed for Erik Griffin!!! He’s practically a co-host now. With his seventh appearance, the comedian, actor, and podcaster jumps straight into it with Rick. They break down being type cast, Erik’s late career change, and discussing their significant others in Stand Up sets. This is a real Business-Of-Stand-Up episode that details their feelings toward turning a crowd and how they each go about developing bits. Erik gives us some insight into how he reformats an opinion by finding a different perspective and moulding it into jokes. Rick discusses some of the difficulties he's faced with stand-up and Erik gives him some literal coaching. They discuss how they deal with negative comments and how sometimes blocking is the best approach. Erik encourages Rick to step into his “character” self when on stage and they get into their usual disagreements about nearly everything.

Meghan Trainor (feat. Ryan Trainor)
1:59:00IT’S SUPERSTAR Meghan Trainor!!!! Thats right Boppers… the Grammy, People's Choice & Billboard Music ( x2) Award winning Pop Star comes over to the TYSO home studio and immediately offers to buy Rick a new house. Rick gives Meghan his usual coffee concoction which apparently is some kind of truth serum as she proceeds to critique his home and jokes. Meghan discusses the ordeal of landing her first record deal, regaining her confidence after having a baby, and why she thought Rick was “desperate” when he asked her to come on the podcast (Hi Betty, thanks for writing this description. Rick here looking over it -- I wasn't "desperate!" I was marketing TYSO! F*ck come on). The Goblin Doctor drops by, Rick asks all the heavy hitting questions about money, mental health, and why she doesn’t remember him when she guest starred on NBC’s Undateable (Good work Betty, Rick here again. Listen, I wasn't surprised about Meghan not remembering me on Undateable. This wasn't a big deal rofl. Hahahaha. Imagine if I cared about something like that? Hahahahaha. I'm confident. So...). Ryan Trainor (Meghan's brother and Podcast co-host) drops by despite some miscommunication and opens up about sobriety, being the non-famous sibling, and their new podcast Workin’ On It. Rick finally gets his dream song writing session as the trio find a beat (shout out to Jordan Omley, we'll put his instagram handle up here: @jordanjameslife), some lyrics, and a new HIT song for Meghan’s up and coming album.

2:02:16This week's guest is Caitlin Reilly-- a comedic social media phenomenon! If you’ve ever scrolled through TikTok or instagram you’ve probably come across her viral videos of incredibly accurate characters. She takes a seat to answer all the hard hitting questions… like can we still address a group of people as “Guys”?, abortions, and navigating a very explosive cancel culture when you’re a comedian. Rick enquires about the world of TikTok & Instagram and how they became her main platforms and income revenues. Caitlin and Rick get into a disagreement about social interactions and niceties and what is the best approach without triggering imposter syndrome. Caitlin divulges her struggles working with advertisers, auditioning for drama school, and she recites a perfect millennial Shakespeare monologue. Rick delicately broaches the subject of Caitlin’s father's (Actor John Reilly) recent passing, how the effects of the pandemic kept her from seeing him whilst he was in a care facility, and she recounts what it was like filming the "General Hospital" memorial episode dedicated to him shortly afterward. This episode is full of laughs, cries, farts, and dramatic reenactments… what more could you want!

Ron Funches 2.0
1:17:36Another guest in the UK that happens to be... American! Ron Funches joins us for his 2.0 episode across the pond and takes his swanky slippers off to basically wake up far too early, advertise cereal, and discuss a show that got cancelled because of diarrhea. Ron unpacks his new evolution in comedy and why it’s less about him and more about supporting his peers, the British comedy scene, and lessons his son has taught him. Rick recalls falling asleep during a stand up bit and discusses his maturing as a performer and comedian. Also becomes a donut.

Mircea Monroe (featuring Betty)
2:18:35OUR FIRST ACTUAL GUEST IN THE UK! And how fitting that it's an American :) Mircea Monroe - American Actress, Dreamgirl, Former Date Of Rick Glassman’s and Non-Pooper. Rick and Betty (hi this is Betty writing this… don’t hate me for HOW BORING I MAKE THESE EPISODES) interview the comedy actress about being in "Episodes," being in a relationship with someone else in the biz, and how she ended up in London. Rick enquires about Mircea and her partner’s working relationship and how that bleeds into their personal life. They bond over their lack of bowel movements and Betty gets to hear about the dates that Rick and Mircea went on way back when, even if only Rick remembers them. Mircea fills us in on her COVID hibernations which included studying at Cambridge and turning down roles. The three of them ("us", hi, this is Rick editing. Betty, since you established yourself in 1st person, it's confusing if you include yourself as "them"... NOT that they're anything wrong with if you IDENTIFY as a them!) discuss having house guests, most notably ones named David who sleep on your floor :).

Dad & Cousin Teddy w/ Adam Ray (feat. Uncle Bob)
1:54:13Get ready for some absolute chaos… (FYI this is one of those episodes that is best watched on YouTube by clicking here) You’re about to find out what happens when Comedian Adam Ray and Cousin Teddy meet in Cleveland to smoke with Rick and his dad and discuss absolutely nothing. Steve monologues why Teddy was robbed by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and questions Adam Ray’s 9th appearance for the title of most featured guest appearances. Rick ingests some KIVA edibles to make the conversation tolerable as the room fills so densely with smoke we can barely make out the Goblin poops. We get some “The Vegas Dads” flashbacks and Teddy brags in the form of a eulogy. Also we hear and see more of Momma Glassman’s Craft Corner and Rick phones some comedy friends. Teddy gives his hot stock tips, and you guessed it. We... MEET UNCLE BOB! Again… so it's a real family affair. comment below which Glassman deserves their own solo episodes!!
