Improv teacher, performer, and theater owner Rance Rizzutto joins Justin and Doug this week at the iO Theater in Chicago to talk about masculinity in society. Rance gives some insight as to the types of people and expressions of masculinity he’s seen while teaching comedy over the years. Doug references the documentary, The Mask I Live In, and asks everyone if they can remember the first time someone told them to “be a man.” Doug reflects about accessing emotions in his life and Rance tells a wonderful childhood story about emotions getting the best of us. The heroes talk about crying and why, as men, we feel like we’re not supposed to cry and Rance gives the inside scoop on how commercials get approved through test markets.

Things are wrapped up with a throw-down between the legend of Chuck Norris vs. the legend of Clint Eastwood.
