Lots of special guests stopped by for what is definitely one of the funniest episodes ever recorded. #BruijWilliamsThanksgiving #SLAPthanksgiving

Our very own John Szeluga was nominated in the Best Comedian category, and Chris Sorrentino's band, the Wahoo Skiffle Crazies (featuring past SLAP guests Laura Williams and Ezra Donellan) were nominated in the Best Cover Band category. Voting ends on Sunday, November 16th, so cast your votes today.

You'll recognize many past guests from our podcast, including Tim Duffy, Jay Miller, Comic Book Jones, JHU Universe (episode coming soon), the Impractical Jokers (we had Sal Vulcano on), and The Seconds (featuring Joe Pecora and Joey Patches). Last but not least, there's Kevin Devlin, who we've already named World's Greatest Bartender, so of course he should be named Staten Island's Greatest.
