Today, in the Dogg Zzone 9000 Podcast, we are joined by our dear friend Jason Pargin, author of Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick. We talk about what happens after a celebrity loses control of their schtick. At what point does a person become a parody of themself? Do they know? Do they care? Who do we blame for Steven Seagal, shown here after you Google his name with the word carrot?
We discuss the rise, fall, fall, fall, fall, and incredible financial success of Dennis Miller– the first and only comedian to be exiled from Twitter for being bad at tweeting after he typed this:

And speaking of face offs and the impossible, in our bonus episode we talk about the fun version of celebrity self-parody gone out of control: Nicolas Cage.
