The Daren Streblow Comedy Show Mini-Cast 161: Bob Smiley & Andy Beningo

[display_podcast]My good buddy, Bob Smiley, learned a valuable lesson today at the food court – not everyone holding a tray with food on it is handing out free samples! Soon thereafter, he also learned how to properly ice a bruise.
