Paul and Corey Cross the Streams: Season 5, Episode 5 [‘Waiting for Guffman’ (1996)]

Paul and Corey Cross the Streams is a bi-monthly podcast in which hosts Paul Pakler and Corey Pepper watch and review streaming content. It’s the Great American Podcast where two friends learn about life as they float down the river of streaming services.

It’s season five of Paul and Corey Cross the Streams! This year, Paul and Corey have decided to try something a bit different: Instead of monthly themes, they’ve decided to improvise. Each subsequent episode will in some way be linked to the one that preceded it.

Based on Paul’s In the Mood for Love (2000), Corey was swept up into the world of Chinese cuisine and figured, “We need a movie with a great scene in a Chinese restaurant.” And so… Waiting for Guffman (1996).

Directed by Christopher Guest and co-written by Guest and Eugene Levy, Waiting for Guffman is the mockumentary that kinda started it all. With a Murderers’ row of improv performances, infinitely quotable dialogue, and catchy showtunes, Guffman is a brilliant comedy that holds up nearly 30 years later.

What am I telling you for? If you’ve ever done theatre, someone has made you watch this.
