Episode 371 - The Emoji Movie

Recorded live at the Abrons Art Center on the Lower East Side of Manhattan— Part of the 2018 NYC Podfest.

On this week's Summer Vacation Live, the gang chats about the abhorrent, feature-length commercial for a keyboard add-on you can download for free, The Emoji Movie! How does time pass in the twisted Emoji realm known as, ugh, Textopolis? How come Sir Pooptrick Stewart didn't have a bigger role?

PLUS: Returning for its second season this fall, it's the beloved television classic that took the nation by storm, the one and only— wait, what's that? Oh, never mind. Hey, everyone, Alex, Inc. was cancelled after 10 episodes!

The Emoji Movie stars Patrick Stewart, James Corden, Anna Faris, Maya Rudolph, Steven Wright, Jennifer Coolidge, Christina Aguilera, Sofia Vergara, Rachael Ray, Sean Hayes, Jeff Ross, and—last, and certainly least— T.J. Miller; directed by Tony Leondis.
