Today’s guest on the Quik & Slow Comedy Show is Alex Fortin. He was supposed to be a cop.

This episode is not for the faint of heart as these bros “discuss” owning a gym that is also a house, vasectomy technology, the fireman challenge, professional sports and their member sizes, capitalism and communism, Whoopi Goldberg’s eyebrows, and vasectomies. There is so much about vasectomies…it’s incredible. Thanks for tuning in. Enjoy.
