The Number 23

The Number 23

By Earwolf and Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael, Jason Mantzoukas

Today, February 23rd 2023, Paul, June, and Jason break down the 2007 Jim Carrey thriller The Number 23. Coincidence? Let the HDTGM team decide. They discuss all the bonkers names—from Topsy Kretts to Fingerling to Sirius Leary—the protagonist who hates dogs, Walter Sparrow's sanity, Bud Court's crazy room, the son's childish mug gift, Danny Huston's villainous vibe, and Chekhov's Saxophone. Plus, they ask "At the beginning is Jim Carrey basically playing Ace Ventura?" And Paul reveals his theory that maybe Walter Sparrow's dog bite gave him rabies. Is Paul right? Crack the code.

HDTGM will be in Boston on June 16th & Nantucket on June 20th! Go to hdtgm.com for ticket info, merch, and more.
