Jacob is sick and Nathan is annoyed in this week's secure episode of Cut the Chit Chat! The boys talk about Guarding Tess (1994), a laughless comedy in which Nicolas Cage plays a Secret Service agent charged with keeping safe the former First Lady of the US. Talking points include the difficulty of completing one's Masters while being in the Secret Service; the optics and tactics of toupees at the Opera; how severe tonal shifts can further sink a humourless comedy; and the mysterious power of a single tear. Will the President phone in to get the conversation back on track?
Join us for an episode with more laughs than the ostensible comedy we discuss!
