Ron and Ed talk to Emmy-winning writer Kevin Avery about his Nerd GOAT: Han Solo! A second look at one of our earliest GOATS, with a bit more canon under his belt.

Kevin won an Emmy as part of the brilliant writing staff for LAST WEEK TONIGHT WITH JOHN OLIVER. He's the head writer on THE NEW NEGROES for Comedy Central, and is currently writing for the upcoming animated series THE GREAT NORTH. See Kevin perform at The Punch Line in San Francisco, Nov. 27 through Dec 1, and again in San Fran at Cobb’s over New Year’s.

STANDUP ALERT: December 13-14, see Ron perform with the hilarious Ian Harris in his hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico! Go to for details.


“If you’re world-weary, there’s a real world.”

“Why didn’t Chewbacca have a dashiki? Wait a minute! WAIT A MINUTE. That would’ve worked just fine.”

“In order to show how badass Han Solo is, they constantly make him fail.”

“Quentin Tarantino was like ‘Why am I so scared right now?’ It’s because Gary Busey could die.”

“Evel Knievel never learned to type, that’s why he broke so many f**kin’ bones.”

“You will be hurt if you trust people. You WILL be. BUT. But. It’s worth it in the aggregate, at least.”
