The Boat Show is a special and currently unreleased segment of the Thrilling Adventure Hour.


As part of the JoCo Cruise Crazy 4, The Bens and Paul F. Tompkins were joined by a number of friends of the show to perform this new and then-exclusive segment.[1] While it was recorded in some form, as a documentary segment about it was included in the extras for the Concert Film, it has not been released on the podcast feed.

  • The introduction indicated that this was the same story that had been told at sea, presented for the first time on land.
  • Craig's line referencing Podfest's sponsors SquareSpace and Audible within the text of the show was improvised.[4]
  • Paul F. Tompkins' character referenced a Beyond Belief running gag when he said "I would watch that show" about "Boat Police Academy."


This episode was streamed live and was available for a month after Podfest ended, but to date it has not been released on the Thrilling Adventure Hour's podcast feed.

  • Directer: Aaron Ginsburg
  • Music written by: Jonathan Coulton, Rhett Miller, and Paul & Storm
