Comedians Jon Lunger and Glen Tickle are rewriting all of Wikipedia off the top of their heads without doing any research. Each week they take a listener suggestion for a topic, or get the topic from a special guest.
Oh boy. We're gonna get put on a list for this one. How do you make C-4? Should you eat it? Why didn't the A-Team use it more? Should Glen and Jon have learned to weld? Why does Glen remember a scene from the 1995 Sandra Bullock classic The Net in such vivid detail? It does go boom though.
Why are these curvy little guys named after horses? What do they like to chomp? Why do the boys have the babies? Why aren't they at the Jersey shore? Why do people keep grinding them up and eating them even though Glen said not to? Learn all about seahorses in this week's episode! Also go watch Glen's new special The Favorite on Dry Bar Comedy!

80% of people poop their pants on stage. We talk about why. Also sorry this episode is late! It's a big week for Glen. Jerk! The Magazine Issue #1 just arrived and his Dry Bar special The Favorite is FINALLY out! Use promo code GLENTICKLE to sign up for the new Dry Bar+ app and get a free month!
POWDERED! TOAST! MAN!
What is he made of? What are his powers? How big is his crank?
The creator of Ren & Stimpy may be trash, but Powdered Toast Man is a legend. Learn all about him this week from two guys who grew up unsure why they were allowed to watch the show in the first place.
Look. We had no idea what this one was. We take some bold swings about an event in early American history that we thought might have been the pilot for Three's Company or the plot of King Ralph. We don't know everything.
Shout out to Gabe Mara for the suggestion.
We're back! We took some time off because pandemic, but we're all vaxxed up and ready to roll. Learn all about the first Ferris Wheel, all the lives it claimed, and all the boning that went down in the sky.
TikTok user @ri3cjoh gave us this week's suggestion, and it's a gross one. Thanks a lot, Ric. Lot of goo talk this week. If you don't like gross stuff, sit this one out. Lotta goo.
Glen's new special still isn't out yet, but you can download the Dry Bar Comedy app for free anyway.
Ricky Glore joins us to learn all about MI-6, which we maybe didn't think was real, so we talk about MI-5 and James Bond. Taft gets stuck in a bathtub, then we kind of explore the basic concept of British Secret Intelligence.
What is hibernation? Is it just sleep? Do words mean anything anymore? What's Scottish artist Neil Slorance's tortoise up to? Learn the answers to these questions and more on this week's episode of Improvised Wikipedia. Hey, also Glen has a new special coming out THIS MONTH on Dry Bar Comedy.
It's a VSE (Very Special Episode) this week as we break from format to talk about the Netflix series The Queen's Gambit. Why? I dunno. It's 2020. Jon figured if he let Glen get all the chess out of his system in this episode he'd shut up about it for a few weeks. (He won't.)
Thanks to Daniel Moyer for the name!
Daniel Moyer comes on to learn all about the mysterious land of Canada, a place all three of us have been to in the before times when Americans were allowed to leave the country. Learn about tiny Elvis impersonators, Canada's best exports (comedy), and the group wonders what it's like to have a functioning government.
Hey and if you live in Georgia make sure you're registered to vote for the January Senate runoff election! It's important!
My seven-year-old once said, "Dreams are like private movies in your brain" and she's not wrong. We break down everything there is to know about dreams this week with two of our favorites, comedians Roya Hamadani & Ian Webster.
We adopted the "explicit" tag from the jump because of swearing, but boy howdy do we earn it this week.
Learn about urinary tract infections with our pal comedian Kirk Griffiths from the Proper Ebonics podcast.
Ferris wheels! Champagne! A lot of pee talk! Glen hurts himself laughing. Easily our grossest episode to date, but it's still funny. Enjoy!
Well. It had to happen eventually. We brought Glen's nemesis Ben Youngerman onto the show as our dumb guest. Apparently we brought him up enough times that he invoked some kind of Beetlejuice rule where we had to let him on.
He wanted to know about phonographs because he's an old timey time traveler who looks like what would happen if a Dick Dastardly Funko Pop got its wish to be a real boy.
It's a good episode anyway. Glen explains exactly how phonographs work and also why Thomas Edison was such a piece of shit. We don't do people as topics because of the Vincent Price Rule, but Glen might record a special episode just shitting on Edison for an hour because for real that guy sucks so hard. He's the Ben Youngerman of Menlo Park.
Spookytimes is upon us, so we're throwing it back to our classic episode about ZOMBIES!
This was our most-listened-to episode for a long time, but as our audience grew it got unseated and isn't even in the top 10 anymore.
Also I (Glen) edited this episode in the hospital room with my wife waiting for our second kid to be born.
What's up pasta maniacs? We talking pasta today with our friend and person living in Italy, Rosalie Fry! We cover all the shapes. We tell you to make it. My toddler babbles about Moana in the background. All around great ep. Get a bowl of noodles and listen to this show, then tell your best friend about it, but don't share your noodles.
Ermagherd! This week we talk Goosebumps with Gabe Mara from the Slow Readers podcast!
Is there a weird sound issue where the tracks are a little out of sync because we tried a new recording setup again? Of course!
Is it still a fun episode! You betcha!
This week we have comedian Danny Getz (Feel Feelings podcast) and he'd like to know more about McDonaldland. As children of the 80s Glen and Jon are more than prepared to help him out.
Journey with us now to fantastical land made mostly of meat people with questionable power dynamics.
We're back with a Friday classic. We considered reuploading these in order, but Super Mario Sunshine is coming to the Switch as part of Mario's 35th anniversary, so we figured we'd ride this hype-wave all the way to glory and drop in this episode about neither of us ever played. Enjoy!
Hey! Starting today, we'll be posting NEW episodes on Tuesdays and CLASSIC episodes on Fridays. What better place to start than with Episode 1 - "Cardinals"
This was our first go at improvising a Wikipedia entry, and we had such a good time we're still doing it.
If you're wondering why we're doing this, it's a boring technical answer that has to do with the way we were hosting our files before switching to Anchor. Uploading nearly 100 episodes at once seemed like not the best solution, so we're adding them gradually, in order. In theory this will go on forever, because we'll be adding new episodes each week. Plus these episodes were recorded over two years ago, so even if you've heard every episode it might be fun to look back fondly on the old ones.
What up with all these roads? Why are there no mountains anymore? Why can't we drive to Hawaii?
All these questions and more will be answered on this week's episode featuring Jiah Peck from the podcast Amusing Ourselves to Death that he hosts with past guest Justin Passino. Both Jon and Glen were recent guests on their show, so go check it out.
We’re on a boooooooat (metaphorically) in this one.Apologies for the delay in episodes. We’ve been recording them but Glen has been slow to edit them because “the world is on fire” and he’s “sad”.We’ll also be doing some live recordings you can tune into online, so follow us on Facebook to find out when that is.Also please stay the fuck home. Wear a full fucking Spider-Man mask if you go outside. Wash your hands. Tell people you love them. Hold grudges. Do arts and crafts. Do weird video calls with your family.
A lot of Apolo Ohno talk on this one.
What if skating was Sonic the Hedgehog?
How good is Glen’s dad at ice skating really though?
Are Jon and Glen really contentious with each other in this one? You bet!
Glen knows about igloos because of a weird book he read as a kid instead of going outside or making friends.
Jon has his feelings hurt because Glen doesn’t listen, but Glen doesn’t remember exactly what Jon was mad about because he wasn’t listening.
This is a very good suggy jest and a very bad Wikipedia page.
What’s the best rectangle? Turns out we have very strong opinions. They’re wrong. But we have them.
Learn a math thing and also learn that we don’t know everything, but we do agree that Chris Gethard is a delight!
We also stumble across a great prank one of you could AND SHOULD DO to burn us.
Jon and Glen returned to the SteelStacks Improv Festival, the PREMIERE east coast improvisation festival.
Did we cheat and use the same photo from last year’s festival because we didn’t get a picture this time? Sure.
Do we know everything there is to know about Tupperware and do a really good job relaying that information to an audience in a shorter-than-usual amount of time? Of course not.
Do we hold hands? Famously.
