The Odyssey Storytelling Podcast

Mar 13, 2020

The world is kind of terrible and scary right now, so it's probably a good time for a hilarious, lewd, or not-entirely-appropriate story of some kind. Fortunately, Roscoe Mutz specializes in all three of those things. You should know that this story, from the September 2016 Forgiveness/Grudges show, includes a pretty awful slur. It's not included hatefully and is being repurposed for comedic effect, but still, trigger warning for homophobic language. And speaking of trigger warnings, here's Roscoe's Odyssey bio:

Roscoe Mutz is a juvenile trapped in an adult body, with a dark sense of humor, appreciation for sarcasm, and (despite having no children) an affinity for dad jokes. He practices employment law and commercial litigation at the law firm Farhang & Medcoff, where he vacillates between calm, measured counselor and antagonistic, shouting legal zealot (mostly at other lawyers). Roscoe is a producer for Odyssey Storytelling and spends much of his free time destroying his body through mountain biking (one over-the-handlebars wreck at a time). Contrary to popular belief, Roscoe was not named after the sheriff on the Dukes of Hazzard, but he did have a pet basset hound for many years. While not a stranger to the Odyssey stage, he is debuting his very own “dad joke” that he made up: What do you call a dinosaur that wakes up super early?  A Buttcrackadon.

This story was performed and recorded in front of a live audience at The Screening Room in Tucson, AZ, on September 1st, 2016, and was curated by Molly McCloy. For more information about Odyssey Storytelling, please visit
