You couldn't have fit any more guests in the studio if you tried. We even had to kick Gunner out to make room. Good friend Mark Sweeney stopped by and joined Scott Potasnik for most of the show. We then got to talk about big families and more with Carlos Mencia, and then got our rock on with legendary musician Slash.
With comedy specials, his own TV show and numerous other appearances on Comedy Central, Carlos Mencia became a household name. Whether it is man-on-the-street interviews, studio comedy, commercial parodies, nationwide sold-out tours, or films, Mencia demonstrates an extraordinary ability to connect with a wide and diverse audience. Follow Carlos on twitter and Facebook.
Since emerging into the frontline of iconic rockers with the late-‘80s surge of his Hall-of-Fame band Guns N’ Roses, Slash has been one of the world’s most sought after guitarists. Now hot on the heels of his successful first solo project, Slash is releasing an all new "true to form" album, Apocalyptic Love. Born out of the live band experience that he created on the last album, with a top-notch line up of musicians, this new album promises to be a return to ROCK. A straight forward, balls to the wall rock album that Slash fans have known him for throughout his career. Slash’s musical history encompasses Guns N’ Roses, his own Slash’s Snakepit band and two global hit albums anchoring Velvet Revolver. Follow Slash on twitter

If you ask him, or check out his media kit, Mark Sweeney will tell you he's a "professional comedian," even though his credits also include acting roles in "Boston Public," "The Visitor," and "Days of Our Lives." Along with those TV programs, Sweenz has also starred in several independent films which leads us to believe he's done a lot of porn. The four years he spent in the US Marines were forgettable, either that or he just can't remember them. Though his military history is a bit fuzzy, he's constantly being reminded that at some point he attended college, which is why he's still on the run from the student loan collectors. Mark Sweeney has also recently written his first book, Court Jester: The Making of a Comedian. Follow Mark on twitter.
Costaki Economopoulos is a comedian, true, but he's also a football fan. Those two factors alone make him the perfect candidate to give us a comedic look back at the NFL each week with his new feature that's also been picked up by The Huffington Post and Bleacher Report. With his Greek heritage, it's not surprising that he's been described as a “joke philosopher,” and we're sure he's not the only one saying that. Costaki is also a talented joke writer who's punchlines have been heard on "The Tonight Show," Showtime, BET, and MTV. Follow Costaki on facebook and twitter.
