Life Lessons from the Pizza Hut Lunch Buffet

This week's episode of The Sporkful podcast is up! Listen through the player, Stitcher, or Apple Podcasts. (And please subscribe!)

Comedian Tim Dillon is loud, opinionated, very funny, and really into food.

"Ben and Jerry's, they always have one thing that doesn't belong in the ice cream. It's like we have fudge and M&M's and pieces of my couch," he says, in one standup routine.

This week on The Sporkful, we head to Tim's hometown on Long Island.

Tim grew up eating seafood and swears his town has some of the best fish in the world. So he takes Dan to one of his favorite spots, Jordan's Lobster Farms to talk about why this place, and this food, are so important to him.


Over half a dozen plates of seafood, Tim talks about the foods he grew up with -- from fancy restaurants in Manhattan (on special occasions) to the Pizza Hut lunch buffet:

"A lot of promises were made in the founding documents of this country. Very little of that has been fully realized. And one of the things that is left of that is a $7 lunch buffet," he argues.

Be sure to check out Tim Dillon's Netflix comedy special (part of their "Comedy Lineup" series) and look out for his new Comedy Central stand-up special -- out October 19!
