We asked the comedian to share his online fixations. It’s eclectic – including a British food influencer, a podcaster takedown and the best graph featuring Ludacris
My strongest memory of the internet is pirating stuff off LimeWire and Kazaa. I felt pretty cool downloading CD rips of Guido Hatzis albums and Adam Sandler’s Piece of Shit Car but I wanted more. My friends warned me that there was hella porn on LimeWire and I should watch out because I’d probably download it stupidly and get in heaps of trouble. I hated being patronised. Still do. That’s why I decided to make a point and fearlessly pirate a TV show just to brag to my friends the next day.
I snuck down to the family computer, opened up LimeWire and searched for this random sitcom starring Ryan Reynolds called Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place. I was pretty much a pro at the internet by then so I only typed in the first half of the title. Two Guys and a Girl. I clicked download. Long story short, my friends were right.
