It’s safe to say that Eddie Ifft is one of the most traveled comedians in show business. This year alone, he has headlined not only all over the United States and the United Kingdom, but also in 15 other countries, including South Africa, Australia, China, and the United Arab Emirates. His travels were chronicled for an upcoming feature length, documentary film entitled America the Punchline. It all started for Ifft while working at his father’s insurance firm. One night after work, Ifft tried his hand at an open mic night at a local comedy club. The next day, he was either fired from his father’s firm or quit to pursue his new career, depending on who you ask. Recently, Ifft was one of the five finalists in the MySpace and Sierra Mist Stand Up or Sit Down Comedy Challenge. The finals were aired on TBS, and the winner was chosen on HBO’s Comic Relief. Ifft has now appeared on NBC’s hit show Last Comic Standing season two, Thank God You're Here, Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, BET's Comicview, NBC’s Late Friday, VH1’s Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Comics Unleashed, Chelsea Lately, and has performed with Dave Chappelle, Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, and Robin Williams. Ifft has also hosted Shark Week. He has spent a season as the ABC college football guy, has earned a job as man-on-the-street on the Queen Latifah Show, and was co-host of a sports radio show on New York’s legendary WNEW. He hosted a pilot for Comedy Central entitled Strap-On and also had a role in a Stephen King film. He released his second CD, Jokes That Make My Friends Laugh, in early 2007, after the success of his first CD, I Learned the Hard Way. He also recently taped a DVD in front of a sold-out crowd at the Sydney Opera House in Australia. Be on the lookout for his podcast called Wingmen that he co-hosts with comedian Bryan Callen, and his own comedy special on Comedy Central.

My podcast Talkin' Sh!t is the only podcast to be banned from iTunes for offensive content — it's like my own real-life “Wayne’s World.” On my show I bring together comedian friends, entertainers, celebrities and much more for an hour of raw, uncensored funny. Previous guests include Joe Rogan, Steve-O, Bob Saget, Jay Mohr, Doug Benson, Brad Garett, Hannibal Buress, among folks who have appeared on Talkin' Shit.
I also do stand-up, act and have a daughter and a wife and a crazy legion of obsessive fans of my podcast I call "Shitheads." I'm also currently working on a TV show.
Why did Lilit leave the show? Also, was it Charlie Sheen who infected you with your AID's?
No actually it was the listeners of Talkin' Shit that gave me Google AIDS when they Google bombed me. It was funny until my dad who has the same name as me called me asking why the internet said he had AIDS.
What happened with Yoshi?
I asked Yoshi to wear a Komona in a video. and he thought that was racist. For those who don't know Yoshi is a Korean/Japanese comedian that I have on my podcast regularly.
Your real father. Ask your mother about that.
That was funny.
when Jason came in with that knife to stab the airbed, did you think that he had finally flipped and was gonna kill you?
YES!!! I did think my life ws in danger.
When will we see Jason's road trip videos?
Giving them to an editor this week. Hopefully he will put something together.
Is the Bingle Bus becoming a TV show? If so, Can I have a job?
Like every other show in Hollywood it's up to the jews.
Eddie what piece of the podcast that you had to get Machete to chop at the time do you now wish you could play ?
Some of my fights with Jim. It always crushed me that the Kevin Brennan episode sound quality was too poor to hear.
When is Gummy bears making a come back?
I'll probably record a show with him in New York if his dick hasn't fallen off by then. You're referring to Brian McCarthy? Go listen to his show, The Brian McCarthy Interview Show.
You mean the show he updates like once every three months?
We are trying to change that.
Do you regret letting shithead into your life? I mean, we know where the rape cottage is, your daughters name, and all the intricacies of your life.
In the beginning I did regret it. Not anymore. The ShitHeads have turned out to be some of the greatest people I have ever met. It's the Mongs that worry me. I don't live at the Rape Cottage anymore. If you want to see it, it's at 30 1/2 Breeze Avenue in Venice. It's the back house, so it's actually on Breeze Court.
How did she try to ruin your wedding?
She told my wife that I fell in love with a stripper. Which is true. I do every time I go to a strip club.
Every time he goes on a podcast Rich Vos seems to mention that his favorite Patrice O'Neal memory involved him brutally trashing you. Was it as awful as he makes it sound?
Arguing with Patrice would be like James Taylor trying to play with Megadeath. You just couldn't hear my comebacks.
Do you feel like you owe any money to Jim?
Zero. Completely the opposite.
Did Gene Pompa approve this AMA?
He did. But he was drunk when he did it. And he won't remember.
That's pretty racist. Would you like to tell everyone what a "bong" is?
Edit: /s for the not so smart
It's the sound an aboriginal makes when they hit your brush bar. That's a racist term in Australia.
Why is Lilit such a horrible person?
You'd have to go on her Dad's Reddit and ask him that question.
Why did Lilit leave?
She got upset because she wasn't getting any mic time, so she went on Yoshi's podcast. Then she and Yoshi got in a fight and he came on my show and trahed her and she blamed me and tried to ruin my wedding.
You seem pretty clued up about the world at times but you rarely go after the big topics. You seem to stick to dick jokes on the podcast, loved the podcast with Serj, any plans to have more people like him and less comedians?
I say this but miss Chris Wylde
I'm a comedian, not a political pundit. I don't feel like I am smart enough to give an educated opinion on topical events. I feel like the only responsibility I have is to mock them.
WAY back when you had Kayden Kross on. Was there things that you had to cut from that episode or did you get in any trouble from her after it aired?
It was a pretty harsh berating you two put on her, it was awesome keep up the good work.
Was there any guests leave during the podcast due it being not what they expected?
I'm pretty sure we left everything in. She might have told us she was banging Dave Navarro. Dat Phan walked off the WODcast bc I was being too offensive and he said he works with Disney.
That's what happened?! For a guy who was pretty outlandish, that's oddly tame for him to get upset about.
I was surprised too. I really didn't mean for it to be malicious. I love the guy. I think he is funny and I didn't mean for him to be the object of the joke. I thought we were going to make something really funny.
Who do the shitheads have to harass to get you a comedy central or Netflix special?
I wish I knew. Netflix was courting me for awhile. That;'s the place to be right now.
When are you coming to Seattle? You owe me 2 backstage passes as per kickstarter.
My agent is trying to find me a venue. If I shoot a special, it will be in Seattle and you will be hanging out backstage for that.
I go to New Mexico Tech and you were here like a month ago. First question is, are you coming back here next year? It was pretty great (but probably because everyone was drunk) and 2) how much of your act is based off of real world experiences that you've had? Keep being awesome
I can't write jokes. I have to live them. Yes you were all drunk, but it made me enjoy it even more. I would love to come back. Tell Annine to bring me.
Aww, you're cute, I like you Eddie.
Then fucking upvote! I don't even know what the fuck that is.
I'll be nice with one
Who was your favorite guest?
And not so nice with this one
I've heard Jims version whats your version of events?
My favorite guest was either Kenny Hotz from Kenny vs Spenny or Brian McCarthy the guy had the sex with a post-op transsexual.
Jim cheated on me with a sitcom. So, we got a divorce. And I got custody of the podcast in the divorce.
I'll go easy Eddie, promise,
I know you travel a lot but when are you gonna come to the UK?
the UK shitheads would go nuts, took a few folks to see Stanhope and i think I've converted them
There's a possibility of a tour in the summer. I just want to check with ISIS about their schedule. Don't want it to conflict with ISIS's schedule.
When are you coming to Sacramento, CA?
Tomorrow night. I'll be at the Punchline. 8PM show.
How many coyotes has Jason killed in your backyard so far?
Zero. He can't even hit them with the paintball gun.
Deal. Its big and black.
Make sure you use good lighting then.
Hey there! First time caller, long time listener, when is the last time you got laid?
Truthfully, from my wife, or anyone else? My wife, months. Can't answer the other one.
Prediction for your beer mile time?
I think I can do it under 10 minutes. But, if I throw up I have to run a penalty lap. So it's going to end up being at least 12. The beer mile is a one mile run, every lap you chug a beer. It's for charity.
Are you team Lachlan or Team Praino in the big Kooks of Comedy split?
I'm Team trying to keep them together.
Sup Eddie, Pittsburgh shithead here.
What guest have you always wanted to have on but have never been able to land?
Gary Busey is my number one. I d like to talk to Shia Labeouf too. I like Trainwrecks! On a serious note I'd love to have Kelly Slater on.
Would you missus let you have a threesome with Bonnie?
Never! My wife isn't into chicks...Yet hahaha.
Where does the Show you did in Hawaii rank? Stanhope, Tranny, and showing sack to a camera man.
Probably Top 10 for sure. Maybe even Top 3.
Do you consider inviting Andy Ruther on the show to be the biggest mistake you've ever made?
Do you consider inviting Chris Wylde to be there the same night to rescue the show to be your biggest triumph?
True to both. Just kidding. I love Andy.
Are you good with Jefferies?
As somebody who has never watched or heard of the Talkin' Shit podcast, could you describe it in 3 words or less?
Have you been partying with Charlie Sheen lately?
Never got the chance, but Andy Dick has and he talks bout it on the newest episode of Talkin' Shit that comes oout tomorrow.
of all the no-longer-living comedians, whose work do you mos respect?
Mitch Hedberg probably. I love that anyone can repeat his jokes and they are still funny. Add Mitch's voice to it and it amplifies the funny a billion times. He also was a super nice guy.
His answer would probably involve two fingers and roofies. Why did she leave the show, though?
She wanted to be an on air personality, but we hired her to take pictures.
eddie this is hefty... did andy dick give you some of charlie's tiger blood last night on your date?
Andy and I did talk about how many people would be making Tiger Blood and #Winning jokes
What are you able to tell us about the new Bingle Show that you haven't already? Is it looking like a tv show, youtube show or still remain a podcast?
Edit: Also a completey random question. If you could be a fly on the wall at any time in history, when would it be?
Talkin' Shit will remain a podcast recorded out of the Del Monte Speakeasy (downstairs at the Townhouse) in Venice. All the usual suspects will be there. The Bingle Show is going to be a hybrid show built for viewing on the internet. If it gets picked up for TV all the better. Fly on the Wall the 80's comedy scene.
Hi Eddie! Any plans to go back on Getting Doug soon?
I love the show and it's one of the only times I get high.
Dude You did 2 hours and it was amazing. Think the Comment of the night was Stanhope saying the openers had openers!
He's the Greatest Comedian Ever in my opinion.
Remember when you and Jim Jefferies had a funny podcast? any plans to do more things like beer boarding?
Jim wasn't there when we did the beer boarding or the haunted house or the gay hot dog eating contest. We have done over 440 episodes and he was only there for 180.
Big Shithead here, been listening since Episode 1.
You've had a lot of big name guests on your show, especially recently. Is there anyone you still aspire to have as a guest? Are there any guests that contacted you and you denied them a spot on the show?
I'd love to have Daniel Tosh. He rips on me and it's really funny, but he won't do it. He doesn't do anything.
I'd also love to have Adam Sandler or Jim Carrey.
Whats the craziest thing you've heard Joe Rogan talk about?
Probably the DMT stuff.
I can never tell when you're serious or not on the show, so what exactly is the current physical state of the Bingle Bus?
We have done a great job taking care of it with the exception of the engine (most important part.) We have a diesel mechanic coming over tomorrow. All signs point to that we blew the head gasket.
Is Kevin & Bean Show your favourite morning radio show to do?
I have a couple favorites. Kevin and Bean and the Alice Show in San Francisco.
Do you ever fear Jason getting too big for the show? Or did that phase already occur and you know he's yours for life?
Yes I did. He is an untamable beast! We are going to be buried together some day.
You tour Australia A LOT ... favourite places here? Beach, place to eat, public toilet to blow guys?
Paris Cafe in Bondi Beach. I try not to leave Bondi except to go surf and work.
I also like anything in Blacktown.
What's your favourite shit to talk about?
Meconium or Diarrhea.
How much do you regret getting the Shitheads to troll the AMA?
Yep. That's all I can say. Yep.
whose the most famous person you have ever met, were they an asshole?
I work with Jason Auer every day! He can be an asshole.
did anyone get to fuck lillith?
Not that I know of. Her and Jason hooked up allegedly.
Any plans to do Melbourne comedy fest next year?
It's still up in the air. I'm doing Adelaide and the Perth Fringe for sure. Melbourne Festival audiences are uppity politically correct cunts.
What do you think about the state of podcasting; is it still the next big thing or has it kind of plateaued?
No question here, just wanted to say thanks. Talking shit broke my podcast cherry and my life is infinitely better for it.
I don't know if many people will become rich with podcasts, but it doesn't look like anyone is quitting. People just enjoy doing them in this narcissistic world.
So no Caitlyn Jenner jokes then.
If I'm there I will represent Caitlyn well. I might do my entire show in drag.
Have you seen an increase in ticket sales, or a better fit of audience since starting Talking shit?
Much better ticket sales since I started the show. Real fans too. Not enough to pack the shows completely, so I get randoms at my show that don't get me. The ShitHeads are crazy too. Two fights at my shows in Orlando this week.
How are things between you and Jim these days?
Hold on let me get his cock out of my mouth. Haven't spoken to him in months maybe even years.
Why did you pawn the go pro cameras?
Daddy needed candy! We still have all but one of them. It got stolen off the Bingle Bus. Probably be Gene Pompa so he could make homemade porn.
Who is a bigger douche? Jay Mohr or Jay Cox-Mohr?
Probably Jay Mohr Cox. I love Jay. He has only been good to me.
Do you an Jim really have a thing against each other?you guys sure had problems but when he quit got guys seemed to be on good terms. Now I hear that you hate him. What's going on exactly?
I don't hate Jim, but he isn't going to be the best man at my next wedding.
Big ShitHead here, been listening since the early 200's. What advice would you give to a young professional ShitHead who is lacking in both felonies and neck tattoos? Can I still listen to the show?
Get a skill in something that will make you unfuckable, or put a fin on your car.
How does it feel to have 3 Facebook likes and 10 upvotes for your big AMA?
Better than it must feel to have a Reddit name based on my favorite comedian.
How do i become funny?
Fuck fat girls.
When you saw a dog eat the shit out of an Indian guy's ass, did you think of Jason?
No I thought about what I was going to use to get the cum off me.
I used the dog.
why do you think you're not as popular as you are in australia. What are you doing differently there?
People in America like McDonald's, WWF, Justin Bieber and the Kardashians. I'm not sure if Americans have taste. The truth is I have a really great agent and promoter in Australia. For years I didn't have good representation in America but now I do. So if nothing happens it's all my fault.
How did you manage to survive the mean streets of Fox Chapel?
I carried a Swiss Army knife at all times.
Have you ever thought of being a guest on the after disaster podcast? (Or at least loveline again)
I love those guys. I would love to be a guest. I would also like my baby to stop crying right now.
Should I go see you Saturday night?
Yes if you want a handjob.
Will Jim ever come back as a guest or is he too famous now? Also when are you coming to the UK next?
I don't think fame is the issue. I might be coming over in the summer if everything goes well.
Can i watch The Bingle Show from Asia?
Only if you are a Westerner. We have a filter set up to keep Asian people out. Of course you can watch. It will be on YouTube or ewtube as its pronounced over there's.
Can you give me your phone number?
Only if you send me dick pictures.
Who are you? Why should we care?
I'm a cunt. But not as big as you.
So some has been rockstar then? You sound like a biggity bitch
I am kind of a bitch.
