The Sal and Bob Show

The Sal and Bob Show is a podcast hosted by comedians Sal Demilio and Bob Phillips.

They love steakhouses, so they visit some of the best in the country, crack wise and generally act like idiots while enjoying a great meal. They talk comedy, gambling, sports, movies and other things that interest us. With regular bits like the One Hit Wonder and The Whine List, it's a lively half hour of nonsense.

Malone's Prime Beef Steakhouse - Lexington, Kentucky
March 4, 2019

A unique and very special episode with a funny and entertaining interview with our favorite Dateline NBC reporter, Josh Mankiewicz! (@JoshMankiewicz) Coming to you from Smith & Wollensky in Columbus, Ohio, the One Hit Wonder is a nod to Dateline, Haddaway’s “What is Love,” or “Baby Don’t Hurt Me.”

Sal and Bob are huge fans of Dateline, and Josh’s reporting, so they ask questions they think other fans want to know the answers to. Josh talks about why Dateline is so compelling, quoting his colleague and fellow Dateline reporter Dennis Murphy, that “It’s not about the murder. It’s about the marriage.” Josh talks about the “CSI Effect,” which highlights how today’s jurors are affected by crime science portrayed on television, saying that OJ would probably be convicted today.

Bob asks if Josh has a favorite episode that resonated with him and gave him personal satisfaction. Josh shares one where a wrongfully convicted man was helped, in part, by Dateline’s dramatization of the facts, and was ultimately cleared of wrongdoing and freed from prison.

Sal and Josh talk about how there's an art to the interview process, and how families of murdered loved ones want to tell the story of the victim, and how Dateline helps them do that. Josh talks about the challenges in interviewing law enforcement officials. People have asked Josh if he’s scared when he interviews murderers, and his response is that he is not. Partly because it’s in a prison where the fight has gone out of the killer, and partly because the murderers want to tell their story, too.

All the guys laugh about Bill Hader’s impression of Josh, and Sal wonders how Dateline gets the “pensive” shots of the guilty drinking coffee by a window. Josh says one of the trickiest parts of the show is to keep the secret of someone’s guilt or innocence until the right time in the story. They wrap things up by agreeing to meet for a steak dinner at The Golden Steer, The Met, Michael’s Gourmet Room, Manny’s Steakhouse, or somewhere else road warriors meet. What a fun, entertaining, and insightful episode with the very gracious and funny Josh Mankiewicz.

Malone's Prime Beef Steakhouse - Lexington, Kentucky
Feb 25, 2019

Fun episode with guest and fellow comedian, Matt Holt, from Malone’s Prime Beef Steakhouse in Lexington, Kentucky. The guys kick things off jawing about the One Hit Wonder, My Sharona by The Knack.

Matt schools Sal and Bob on the Bourbon Trail in Kentucky. All the guys complain about the weird gigs they’ve had to endure, like busses, deck and basement parties. Matt tells a really funny story about bombing at a church gig. Matt gives Sal and Bob the lowdown on cruise ship comedy and why it’s so awful. All the guys place their orders and Matt gives Sal a hard time about his steak temperature. Sal and Bob reminisce about Randall Cobb. Sal gives some details on Malone’s celebrity menu. As it often does the conversation turns into a shared rant about why the Detroit Lions suck so bad. They wind things up with another edition of Mickey Yelling at Rocky, and Mickey is played by their guest Matt Holt.

Lucky’s Steakhouse - Bay City, Michigan
Feb 18, 2019

“96 Tears” by Question Mark and the Mysterians is the One Hit Wonder on this episode of The Sal and Bob Show, where they travel to Lucky’s Steakhouse in Bay City, Michigan.

Sal relates a story about a guy who won $100,000 betting that the Rams would only score 3 points. Both guys talk about their prop bet where they won $100 betting the over in how long Gladys Knight would take to sing the National Anthem.

Bob yaps about the State of the Union speech, and how condescending Nancy Pelosi was. Sal says he just can’t watch Trump deliver a speech because Trump is always sniffling. The guys discuss Trump’s rumored use of Adderall.
