The Original Gentlemen return with our yearly tradition of talking about independent comics, more specifically, STAPLE! The Independent Media Expo in Austin, taking place March 7th-8th at the Marchesa Hall and Theater in Austin Texas. To that point, we have Uncle Staple (Chris Nicholas) joining this week along with the owner of Rogue’s Gallery Comics and Games, Randy Lander, and comic writer Paul Benjamin. But lest you think this is just dry discussion about comics and such, think again. We’re wetting our whistles with a bottle of scotch Martin brought along for the ride so, as you might expect, really funny madness ensues.

Now how can you not want to listen to this awesomeness? Only caveat is, The Original Gentlemen, guaranteed now to be bi-weekly, is part of the subscriber package for Brown Coats.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
