The Jon and Jess Variety Hour

created by  Jon Golbe, Jess Lane

In this humble writer's opinion, you can only earn the privilege to self-cancel with honor by beating the "longest running show" record (currently at 8 episodes, soon to be 9 or more). But Jon and Jess have never been about honor. They've been about fun! That, and saying "fuck you" to the audience in the most adorable way possible. So perhaps it's no surprise that that's how they went down in episode 5.
