Search My Trash

"Having been in a relationship for either 14 or 22 years (depending on which one of them you ask), whatever Ralph (Jason Stuart) and Randy (Mitch Hara) once felt for one another has gone into hiding, and the romance has long escaped their life together."

iHeart Radio

"Comedian, actor and star of the Amazon Prime series Smothered calls in to talk about his work, his new book and what it was like being gay and Jewish when he first started out.
About 15 minutes in, his co-star, comedian Mitch Hara joins in on the fun. These guys are hysterical! That takes up the first half of the show."


"Anybody could mistake Jason Stuart and Mitch Hara for a longtime married couple.
The two have an immediate rapport, a rapid-fire banter between them that lends itself toward completing each other’s thoughts, or spontaneous bickering. No wonder, then, that the pair decided to actually play a married couple in the new digital series Smothered."
