In this episode, the two Matts use a SUPER Thesaurus Machine, make up a new annoying character for future skits, realize that this dumb writing podcast actually has somewhat of a lore, and discuss writing comic relief in both comedic and dramatic works! When is the proper time for comic relief after a tragic moment? When should comic relief be set aside? How can comic relief and dramatic moments enhance each other? How many times does Matt Donald jump in with a fake Italian accent? We discuss it all, with plenty of laughs and zero dramatic moments, and talk about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Lord of the Rings, a new Ultra series, and the works of Christopher Paolini for some reason.
