Not the actor John Larroquette, this is his son. Jonathan is a former Rastafarian with a peculiar and often amusing upbringing. Heís done almost every popular psychedelic drug and sometimes talks about his experiences when the topic comes up. Heís slowed down over the years but, he has been known to occasionally smoke cannabis or drink weird energy drinks while they record the show (more early on).

His unique past and drug use shaped him into a humble and self aware person who occasionally goes on rants about society. He got the nickname Jah from his rasta past, but mainly because in the first 50 or so episodes he would sometimes read hilarious and awful poetry from when he was a teenager and they would start the segment with a loud, echoed JAH-AH-Ah-ahathanís poetry sound bite. It was a popular bit, but sadly he ran out of material quickly. Heís currently unemployed, but sometimes goes on tours with his band "Jogger" featuring his pal Amir Yaghmai.






Seth is awesome, heís the funniest person I've ever listened to. He has his own style of comedy and impersonations that contain incredible delivery. He doesn't participate in social technology or own a cellphone (although he does use the internet to occasionally uncover material for some of the darkest moments of the show). It's easy to imagine him being one of the greatest stand up comedians on the circuit if he wasn't so private and slightly neurotic (likely exaggerated for the podcast.)

He was small time actor that's featured in Britney Spear's Crossroads. He doesnít reveal as much as Jonathan does, but he is a former alcoholic, which sometimes leads to incredible rants about sobriety. He often talks about TV and even has must watch short length video compilations from the strange collection of television content he's taped over the decades: http://uhhyeahdude.com/media/seths_corner/

For their 100th episode they started experimenting with video and recorded a few clips from the podcast that can be found on their youtube channel. I'll list some of the better ones, but I find the actual podcast is a better way to jump into it and that the clips, while funny, don't represent the show as a whole.

I never set out to be weird. It was always other people who called me weird.

Also worth noting is that their website, https://www.uhhyeahdude.com has some extra features that are worth checking out, including a Wiki of common UYD memes to help the newbie listener get acquainted with some of their long-running jokes. For instance, Seth Romatelli acted in the Britney Spears movie Crossroads, and this occasionally gets referenced on the show.

I love this show, but obviously it's not to everyone's taste, as you can tell by reading the Comedy Podcast Megathread. But I think if you listen to the June 30, 2011 ep. of UYD and aren't brought to tears of laughter by their discussion of the boy who survived two plane crashes, then you probably don't have a sense of humor.

What's a not gay way to ask him to go camping with me?

I started listening to UYD in January I think. Only up to episode 230 or so, but it is probably the best podcast around that has no guests. It's amazing how they can put out such quality episodes so consistently. I do cringe sometimes when Jah will talk about something he obviously only read a sentence about and be completely wrong, but I can forgive him.

UYD's continuing listenability can't be overstated. Episodes they recorded in 2006 are still hilarious an relevant, which makes this a great show to archive binge on. I listened to episodes 1-260 over the course of about 6 months.

This can't be stressed enough. Anyone I turn on to this podcast I tell them to just start at episode 1. When I jumped in in the early 200s I didn't really like it, but I started to listen in order out of curiosity and I got hooked. The early episodes really build up the two hosts as the characters they are and you learn the origins of every insidy type joke. Like Song For The Deaf said, they have rarely felt dated at all so it's all fresh and hilarious content.

If you jump in to the newer ones and don't care for it, give the older ones a try. I'm still not caught up to the current ones, I have like 50 to go.

I'm gonna try to get some episode recommendations/clips up soon as well, so if anyone has any to add let me know.

UYD is the best. Currently I seem to be obsessed with digging up info about Seth (no actual luck) Jahnathan shares so much that I feel like I need some Seth info. I have heard from somewhere that he works at a dispensary. It's possible this info is on their forums. I am also wondering if he actually has a daughter (like it seems possible but its hard to tell sometimes when he is being sincere). I wish there was a seat-belts bumper sticker.

Has anyone heard the episode of JJgo! where they attempted to guest star on somebody elses podcast? That was one of the most awkward things imaginable (not that I personally don't like JJgo! I just think that those two groups really don't work together well).

As for favorites (Going off of the ones I five stared in I-tunes): 16 (the white man calls her flute playing, wind), 61, 83, 87, and 115.

I can't overstate how much joy i get from listening to this podcast, honestly I can (and have) been just listening and re-listening to episodes for about a year and a half now.

In the latest episode (Sept 15 2011) they started making fun of children's names in the context of a story and Jonathan mentioned a particular, normal name and made it sound like that was Seth's kid's name. I'm pretty new to the podcast so maybe it's an inside joke I'm not aware of but I think that's what it was.

I've listened to about 15 or so episodes (a few in the 120s and the most current ones) and had been hoping to get recommendations so thank you

Seth's Sexy Sativa: A strain of medicinal marijuana sold in Hollywood, California. After people smoke it, they're not sure at first, then they sit back and realize, "wait a minute, everything here is like, awesome. Wicked awesome" (Episode 121, 8:51 Jonathan smokes it.)

Yeah, the greatest modern day (relative to me getting into the show at around 110-120) would be Seth's mom co-hosting. It's really, really funny and charming.

How about some old timey UYD (sometimes one-off) segments that you miss? Real hobo or Seth hobo, real/fake Grateful Dead song and Who's *something* *something*, Jonathan's book review of A Clockwork Orange ("Hey, Jon, man. Great work. It's almost ready for your portfolio. First off, gotta read the book. Secondly, gotta read the book."). I specifically remember the segment that really got me hooked (other than the Craigslist readings obviously) being Whooooooooooooo am I?

Relistening to the Seth's mom episode. She has the thickest accent ever. It's funny because sometimes, once in a while, Seth's accent sneaks out (specifically during a Craigslist reading where he shouts "IT'S SHAKESPEAAH").

I can't remember which episode(s) it was, but Seth did a segment called "You tell me, dog." Basically, he would read a story that would have some kind of paranormal angle or it would have a really strange twist/coincidence in it, and he'd end the story with, "You tell me, dog. You tell me." I wish they'd bring that back.

Been listening to UYD for a little more than two and a half years now. Started in January of 2009. The first episode I happened to download was 146, where they covered the nominees for the 2009 Adult Video Awards. By the end of that segment I was downloading the entire series to get caught up. It really is amazing how the show never feels dated, even though they're usually talking about current events and trends for half the episode.

Not just two plane crashes, but two plane crashes where his Dad was the pilot, and the first crash killed his mom and two siblings. It's the craziest, most hosed-up story possible yet somehow they wring about 5 solid minutes of comedy from it.

Even if his job is to clean the ATM (Which isn't a job I'm familiar with, but whatever,) why was the guy ordering people to move back so he could take a bunch of pictures of the ATM? Why did he pull the the discarded receipts out of the trash and take pictures of those? That's one where I totally bought that Jah ran across a legit crazy LA person. Their stories about Los Angeles are phenomenal, but they have also convinced me that I want to do everything in my power to avoid ever being in that city.

Honorable mentions are the three blues traveler stories, especially the first one. I'll try to have all of these in the op in some form soon.

I love Uhh Yeah Dude, my girlfriend and I have been listening to it while driving around for like three years now. Nobody else even really anywhere sounds as deeply 90s as these two. I think because they're pretty young and producing everything in this show that the way they talk just doesn't sound affected at all, its so much more natural and listenable than the hundreds of others out there trying to put on a more planned scripted show. This is a super consistent show, too. Out of the hundreds of episodes there aren't any drought periods that I can remember. Gotta get out to one of their live shows sometime if they're ever back on the east coast.

My favorite bit was when Seth did a streak of like twenty 'Hey Florida's in a row, just telling each sordid tale and punctuating it with 'Hey Florida' over and over, slowly building intensity. Seth's rants are the best.

I love Seth because he grew up in Haverhill, MA which is the town next to my hometown so we sound similar accent-wise, and I pick up on a ton of references that I'm sure don't mean anything to anyone. Like him going on a date with a girl to a Papa Gino's.

I mentioned it in the other podcast thread but my favorite Jonathan-spewing-nonsense instance was also one of the few times that Seth straight up refused to accept it.

It was something like this:

Jah: So there's a video out there from the 70s that shows people's auras
Seth: Nope. Nooooo there's not.
Jah: Anyway so there's footage of a baby being born and you can see the moment when the baby's aura separates from the mother's
Seth: Well, no there isn't, but okay. Moving on

I'd ask why not just take the physical receipts, but listening to it again Jah says he didn't notice what he did with them after he took the photos. I can accept that it's a job, but the way they're going about it sounds really weird. Also maybe their employees should wear uniforms and gloves instead of just walking around with a spray bottle hidden in a bag while wearing "Full loving motorcycle regalia."

Anyhow, can you blame me or Jah for being suspicious? Remember, this is the show that brought us the story about the guy walking around a supermarket spraying women with his own jizz in a bottle.
