kingofcomedy.jpg

1983 had De Palma's "Scarface," "Eddie Murphy in "Trading Places" (and "Delirious"!), four Tom Cruise movies and the final film in the original "Star Wars" trilogy, but for their Top 5 of '83, Adam and Josh look to auteurs from here and abroad - and Wally World, of course. Plus, a Blindspotting review of David Cronenberg's prescient techno-horror film, starring a sleazy James Woods along with Blondie's Debbie Harry. And stick around for "Bar-Hopping with Adam: Tampa Bay Edition" in the post-credits 'Hot Mics' segment.
