Source – Lost Tape (2017) with Tobydog Tape (2008) Patches
This is a new export and merging of two of the known sources, the episode is 100% complete. The Jerky Boys are making their 2nd appearance of the Adam era, Chris Hardwick filled in for Adam that night in August of 1996, presumably the lost episode CLL #231 from 08/18/1996. The studio sent a limo for the guys but someone gave him the wrong directions, the guys don’t actually join the show until the 3rd segment. Caller Jesse is a standout, the fans online are of mixed opinions regarding The Jerky Boys as guests on this episode, once again decide for yourself.
From Wiki: The Jerky Boys are an American comedy act from Queens, New York, whose routine consists of prank telephone calls and other related skits. Formed in 1989, The Jerky Boys were made up of childhood friends Johnny Brennan and Kamal Ahmed. After Kamal left the act in 2000, The Jerky Boys continued on as a solo act featuring only Brennan, before going on hiatus after the 2001 release of their final album, The Jerky Tapes.
The calls were made by ringing up unsuspecting recipients, or in response to classified advertisements placed in local New York-based newspapers. Each call was made in character, usually with over the top voices influenced by the duo’s family members.
On February 25, 2014, Rolling Stone published an article on The Jerky Boys, in which Johnny Brennan made several prank calls.
