A FREE Story Slam in Highland Park

Story Slam

Bobby and I are hosting a FREE storytelling event at Ruthie's in Highland Park!

Here's what it is: Starting at 7:00pm on Sunday, November 10th, anybody who signs up get's 5 minutes at the microphone, where they can tell a story of their choosing. Comedy, tragedy, everything is welcome and encouraged!

The night can be whatever you want! Want to participate, you can sign up! Just want to have a fun night out? Kick back and have fun, it's your choice!

Want to participate? Email to get on the list! Spend the next couple weeks considering what kind of story you want to tell. Something meaningful that happened to you recently, something you're struggling with, or even something weird/funny that happened!

We do have a theme for the night, which you can certainly use as a jumping-off point:

"Shouldn't have done that"

Roll that thought around, and see what comes to mind. Explore!

Want to listen? Mark down the date, and then, that night, here's what you need to do: Walk into Ruthie's at 70 Raritan Avenue, Highland Park, 08904, and grab a table. That's it. Done. Enjoy! Grab some coffee or a pastry and have a good time.

This story slam can be whatever you want it to be (Please spread the word!), and no matter what, it's going to be a good time.

Come hang out with Bobby and me for our first event ever. It's going to be a great night, and we can't wait!


WBKE - Episode 50: If I Go Down

Happy 50th Episode, everybody! I'm not sure if that's a milestone or not, when it comes to a weekly show, but it's certainly a satisfying number! This week on the show we're joined again by our buddy Anthony Walker, who you'll probably remember from Episode 24! We have a weird conversation that starts with Bobby's penis, turns into a conversation about suicide, and then amazingly enough, comes back to Bobby's penis. Seriously. It's a really interesting conversation, and in the final minutes, we play a NEW SINGLE from Anthony called "If I Go Down." It's such a good song.

Click here to listen! Or grab the show on iTunes!

We're also available on the Stitcher smart phone app for Android/Apple!

Once you're done with the show, you'll definitely want to check out Anthony's Bandcamp Page, where you can buy his music!

Kaboom everybody! This week on Will and Bobby Know Everything, I (Will) instantly start telling Bobby something that I knew he'd hate. Turns out I was absolutely right.

Episode 41 next week!

WBKE - Episode 39: Candy Cane Lips

Hey guys, welcome to Episode 39 of WBKE, hosted by none other than my (Will) sister Kristen Rogers! I can't believe how well this show came out considering that not only was I in a shitty mood as we recorded, but Bobby Skyped in from Brooklyn, because he wasn't feeling well. It's such a goddamn good show. Kristen tells us about a possibly psychopathic woman who comes into her salon, Bobby talks about a weird control freak who came into his bar, and I generally lose my temper about everything! I say this a lot, but this might actually be one of my favorite shows we've ever done!

WBKE - Episode 36: Writing

This week on WBKE, Bobby and I are joined again by my girlfriend, Allie, and we have a conversation about writing, a topic all three of us have particular opinions of. We read about 50 Shades of Grey, get philosophical about the concept of freedom, and then Allie tells us about her experiences writing for a summer theater program with one of the slimiest pieces of shit we've ever met! It's fucked up and hilarious. Also, Bobby suggests a new theme song for the show... Click here to listen, or get it on iTunes or the Stitcher app for smartphones!

WBKE - Episode 35: When I Was Your Age Part Two

Hey guys, welcome to Part Two of When I Was Your Age. Last week we had my (Will's) father Richard Rogers as a guest, and now we have my mother, Kathie Rogers. In this episode we learn a lot. A lot. So much that my mom asked if we could put a disclaimer at the top of the show. It's amazing. We delve into topics like dating, getting in trouble, and then we find out what mom was doing when she was Bobby's and my age. It's a great show!

So click here to listen from your browser!

Or get it on iTunes (click here), or find it on the free smartphone app Stitcher!

Also note that Bobby and I have our own Twitter handles now, so follow us and find us everywhere else online by going to our About Us section!

That's about it other than the fact that we just put a new installment of Will and Bobby Wrote Something online. This is Part Five of our ongoing narrative explaining all the various shows, comics, and movies that Bobby and I have come up with. This particular installment is pretty interesting as it's all about a time that Bobby and I faced a turning point in our writing, so check it out (click here to read) and let us know what you think of the podcast and the blog at

Thanks guys, episode 36 next week!

WBKE - Episode 31: Curses and Comedians

This week on Will and Bobby Know Everything we're joined by our good friend Mike Schin in a conversation that ranges from how Poltergeist is an awesome movie to how much open-mic nights suck. We also get an amazing horror story from Mike, Bobby tells some jokes, and we play one of the most engrossing, horrifying video games in recent memory: Slender.

Check this show out, guys, it's a fucking hoot:

Episode 32 next week!

WBKE - Episodes 29 and 30!

Hey guys, as promised, we have TWO episodes online for you this week! In addition to Episode 29: Social Ineptitude Part Two, Bobby and I have done a show centered around the movie The Dark Knight Rises! That show obviously contains spoilers for the movie, though, so because some of you may not have seen it yet, we made sure to have another show for you this week. And it's fucking good. They both are. Let me tell you about them: WBKE - Episode 29: Social Ineptitude Part Two

Picking up from last week, Bobby and I try to goad Erica (via Skype) to tell us as many weird stories as possible. It quickly devolves (or Evolves) into me basically shitting all over my old friends from high school. But don't worry, most of them deserve it. Assholes. It's possibly one of the best episodes we've ever done, and I'm a fucking fan of this show, so please check this out, regardless of whether or not your avoiding the Batman show:

Click here to listen! 

Click here to go to the iTunes page, or get it on the free app Stitcher (available on basically every smartphone).


WBKE - Episode 30: The Dark Knight Rises [SPOILERS]

In this episode, Bobby and I plow right through the movie. From beginning to end. It works as a review and a critique. We sound like a couple of Batman experts, and then we start talking about shit that makes us cry, like a couple of weak losers. Anyway, find out what we think of the way Batman's story ends, about the film's treatment of The Joker, and what we hated and loved about it. It's a really great show!

Click here to listen!

Click here to go to the iTunes page, or just get the show on Stitcher (an app for smartphones)

Anyway, I hope you guys like the shows we have this week. At worst, you have one show to listen to. At best, you have two! This means there's almost three hours of WBKE online this week!

And remember to “like” our Facebook Page, follow us on Twitter (@WillAndBobby), email with any comments or questions, and donate (if you want)!

Episode 31 next week!

WBKE - Episode 28: Social Ineptitude Part One

This week on Will and Bobby Know Everything, we have what became Part One of a long, weird conversation. Bobby's friend Erica joins us via Skype for an episode that covers so much ground, it's unbelievable. Gangs, racism, celebrities, and so much more. I swear to god I don't even remember talking about half this shit. It's awesome. Erica seems to be a bottomless pit of bizarre stories. She confuses me at every turn. Check this show out:

Click here to listen straight from your browser!

Click here to go to the iTunes page for the show!

Or search for us on the FREE Apple/Android/Blackberry app Stitcher.

Now next week, Bobby and I are going to have TWO new episodes of the show online at once! We'll have Part Two of this conversation, obviously, but we're also going to have a bonus OPTIONAL episode centered around The Dark Knight Rises, which will most likely contain spoilers for the movie. So only if you have seen the movie or don't care about spoilers should you listen to that show. Assuming that not everybody has, we'll have the regular show up. At best, you get two shows, at worst, you still get one.

Kind of cool, right?

Killer whales being assholes, freak shows, snakes, boobs, and strangely enough, we bring Goosebumps up again.

We're also putting out an open call to get a third person to help us out! If you or a friend are interested (and capable of) helping Bobby and I get our recording equipment set up, edit the podcast, or have a fancy high tech camera, please get in touch with us at, because as of right now it's just the two of us and there are a lot of things we want to write, shoot, edit, and put online!

Thanks guys, I hope you enjoy the show.

Episode 27 next week!

WBKE LIVE: June 2012

Last night Bobby and I recorded our very first live show! I think it went pretty well, but I'm an idiot, so take that with a grain of salt. It was a lot like the regular podcast, except instead of having a host, we basically rotated in a few different people for a little while each. It was fun.

I got to talk about death and yell at Bobby, so I'm pretty happy about it. I want to give a huge thanks to everyone who joined us for the show, and also a huge apology for anyone I may have been mean to, without realizing it.

Anyway, go check out the show by clicking on this link:

WBKE LIVE: June 2012

So that's that, thanks again everybody, I think Bobby and I are going to try to do something like this every once in a while. If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions, please e-mail us at, and as always remember to follow us on Twitter (@WillAndBobby) and like our Facebook Page to get goofy updates and talk back to us about them.

Episode 25 of WBKE will be a new, different episode that Bobby and I recorded on the week I moved into my new apartment, and as such the audio is hazy, but deal with it, the show is fucking hilarious...And there's a special something we talk about that you guys can get involved in!

WBKE - Episode 24: Lady and the Tramp

This week on WBKE, we're joined by an amazing musician named Anthony Walker for a conversation that covers a startling amount of ground. This episode is about twice the length of an average episode of our show, because I honestly enjoy everything we talk about. As long as this episode is, there's still more that isn't making the cut! I just didn't want to clip another minute, so enjoy our discussion of: Shitty writing, philosophy, animal behavior, little people working as bouncers, forming bands, and The Poops (a band Bobby is/used to be in). We also play a fucking badass game toward the end of the show which I'm calling "Are You a Nice Person?" It's genius, so enjoy that, because it'll definitely be coming back.

So let me tell you about Anthony Walker. About 4 years ago, I was at a bar and there were different bands playing small sets. If you've listened to the show before, then you know that I (Will) am not the friendliest/nicest guy, and you can probably imagine that I don't pay much attention to people I don't know. Even still, I remember a guy playing a really awesome set. His music was really immersive. It totally grabbed my attention. Not long later, Anthony got a job with me at Fridays, and I instantly recognized him as the musician from the bar (which is also significant, because again, if you listen to the show, you know I have a fucking horrendous memory). He was that good.

For a good long time, on the odd occasion that I found myself hanging out and drinking at Fridays, I'd get fucking wasted (because everyone bought me drinks. It ruled), and inevitably Anthony and I would get around to drunkenly talking about how awesome it would be to have a combination music and comedy show.

Needless to say, I'm fucking stoked we had him on the show. So please go to his Band Camp page where you can set your own price for his music (Anthony says you can get it for free, but he's nicer than me. Pay him.), and go to his personal website where you can info about him and links to a shocking number of sites like YouTube and Tumblr: Anthony Walker.

So back to the show:

Let me remind you that there is going to be a LIVE WBKE this thursday, June 28th at 8:30pm eastern, over at Vokle! Go check out the site and get comfortable with it (search "Will and Bobby Know Everything" and follow us), and like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter (@WillAndBobby) to get an update about when we've gone live!

Also email us at will comments, suggestions, or questions for us to talk about! Remember that you can speak directly to us while we talk, too! It's a video chat so get your webcam going and bring something to the table! It'll be stupid and fun!

Enjoy this week's episode, I did!

Also, at the end, enjoy Anthony's song "Call Me Custer," from This City Never Sleeps, which has been stuck in my head all week.

Allie and I painted our apartment today, and we were both walking around singing that song, so good. Also "Sundowners."



WBKE - Episode 23: Travel

This week on WBKE, my girlfriend Allie is back on the show to talk about her experiences in travelling around the world. One of them is mind-blowingly amazing, and I guess the other one is too...It's just also incredibly fucked up.

On the show, we typically try to separate repeat-appearances of a guest host by about 10 episodes (unless we're doing a two-parter). That being the case, the last time Allie was on the show was for Episode 13, and coincidentally the day this new episode is going online happens to not only be the day that Allie and I are moving into our first apartment together, but also on her 25th birthday!


So in all likelihood, as you listen to this show, Allie and I are setting up our place (including an office that I'll use as a fancy little recording studio)!

Maybe you want to help make her day by checking out her Etsy Store: Color Bloc!

But anyway, listen to this episode, it's so goddamn funny. I'm absurdly proud of it:

WBKE - Episode 21: There's Something Wrong with Dan Aykroyd

This week on WBKE we're once again joined by Michael Palmer, but this time we're talking all about movies. It gave me a good excuse to freak out about geeky shit. Right off the bat, though, we start talking about one of my favorite fucking weird franchises: Ghostbusters.

You can sit at home, and ask a question face-to-face with us! I'll put up a full post here with how to do it eventually, but it's shockingly fucking easy. You can even log in via Facebook and Twitter. It's awesome, and we have stupid shit planned.

We're talking about Penn & Teller!

We're talking about Michael Jackson!

And then we delve into the horror, the weirdness, and the madness of Dr. Carl Tanzler!

I can't warn you guys strongly enough that the story of Dr. Tanzler is not for the easily disturbed, the feint of heart, or anybody with a weak stomach. It's truly bizarre and disgusting. More than that, it's a true story! Seriously: here's the Wikipedia article, complete with pictures!
