Look, It’s The “Jonah’s Arcade” Pilot
by Perry Michael Simon on August 24, 2011
Once upon a time, a fine television program was created, nurtured, and lovingly crafted by a crack team of experts. They worked long and hard on making it the best television show it could be, and when they were finished, they knew that they could be proud of what they did. And that would have to do, because the network brutally rejected the show. The End.
But not the end, not in this age of the YouTubery. Thus, you may now see the pilot for Jonah Ray’s Jonah’s Arcade, produced for Comedy Central and starring the aforementioned Jonah Ray of Nerdist Podcast fame, alomg with Kumail Nanjiani of The Indoor Kids fame, Eddie Pepitone of Puddin’ fame, and Johnny Pemberton of MTV’s MegaDrive fame.
And here it is, in all its unbleeped glory (yes, that means this one is NSFW unless you’re wearing headphones):
