Podcast About List at Sisyphus Brewery. The Minnesota Daily spoke with the comedians about their show and how it has changed.

Podcast About List took the stage to give their first impressions of Minnesota, along with covering strange and funny lists on Saturday at Sisyphus Brewing in Minneapolis.

The comedy group consists of New York-based comedians Caleb Pitts, Cameron Fetter and Patrick Doran. 

The trio described their experience at the Mall of America and their love for the “Ghost Blasters” game at Nickelodeon Universe. Doran explained he did a “pacifist run” of the game in which he went on his phone instead of shooting any ghosts.

The Juicy Lucy, a Minneapolis staple, was also criticized: they explained that cheese is meant to go on top of the burger, as being on the inside just causes hot cheese to spray out on the first bite. 

Fetter even performed an exorcism on one of the audience members at one point.

Pitts said the most fun they have with the show is putting a high amount of effort into a “low-effort, stupid idea.” 

The comedians shared their thoughts on their favorite episode from the show, in which they hired a focus group to review a fake episode of their show.

Doran said it felt like a humiliation ritual and it was the scariest thing they have ever done.

“It was a full brain reset to record the pre-part where we’re trying to be as annoying as possible, and immediately watch it back with everyone in the room reacting. It feels like you’re at your own funeral and everybody hates you,” Fetter said.

Pitts said the focus group helped the show, as they would comment on things they did not even intend to be bad, such as the cameras and lighting.

Fetter said the show hasn’t really improved over the years. He sees the show as worse after they fixed the problems in their own lives.

“There is something lost in not drinking six beers in the worst apartment of all time. That part of it is gone but that’s got its pros and cons,” Fetter said.

Pitts said the biggest change has been taking it more seriously once they started making money off the podcast. 

“The larger lesson from it is you just have to pretend that you’re doing something that matters, and then maybe it will eventually,” Fetter said.

When asked about their biggest achievement in life, the group gave a variety of answers.

Fetter said his was watching one million movies.

Pitts said Doran’s was either a skate flip or a meal, Fetter’s was probably a math problem he solved and his was “something awesome I did in a video game one time.”

The trio will continue to tour around the country and Canada throughout April and May. Tickets are available on their website
