Man, was the crowd not mic-ed properly or were they just not responding to a lot of the early material? I was laughing like mad on the subway but it felt weird with almost dead silence after the opening jokes.

Everybody was laughing pretty hard at the opening material, so I don't believe the audience were mic'ed. The only thing that seemed to bomb was Jesse's joke about Mitt Romney's Page 6 girls, whatever they are.

I assumed that Jesse conflated Page Six -- the New York Post's celebrity gossip page -- and the Page 3 girls of The Sun and other British tabloids.

I snapped this photo during the show - it's a bit blurry, but that's just how Jordan and Jesse look in England.

3PM + no warmup/opener + theme music problems = takes a while for an small-room audience to sound big on-mic. That's why TV shows have a person who runs up and down the aisles yelling and shooting a t-shirt cannon before they start.

WTH? Jesse, where was your t-shirt cannon? Did the airlines refuse to board you unless you ditched it?

Myself and friends were laughing pretty hard but the reactions were somewhat cold for the reasons Jesse mentioned. Overall everyone really enjoyed it though and there were no dicks only dick jokes.

As someone who has been watching "Father Ted" and "Black Books" all summer, I loved this episode. It gave me a hammock boner.

I say it all the time, but Jordan and Jesse really turn it on in front of an audience. Loved it.

Well I was there(on the front row in that pic Colin posted) and loved the hell out of it. Laughed a huge amount and so did everyone else. A couple of jokes got lost in translation(like the aforementioned page 6 one) but overall it was great. My girlfriend had never heard anything from MaxFun before but she loved it so you didn't even need to be a fan to enjoy(she was actually the girl Jesse asked about the American accent - "I don't want to offend" is what she said incase you couldn't make it out. I was the 'attractive homosexual gentleman' in red pants!).

International Waters and the meet up were also super fun!

Come back guys!

Any American who is baffled by brown sauce owes it to him/herself to watch Intermission. I think this is the perfect date movie because it has love, violence, car chases and Colin Farrell, e.g. something for everyone.

In it, a couple of bumbling wannabe criminals inadvertently steal a shipment of brown sauce and feel as though they have to use it up, otherwise their criminal enterprise is all for naught.

From Anthony Lane's review: John and his mate even squirt the stuff from plastic bottles into their tea, and encourage a skeptical Lehiff (Colin Farrell) to do the same. My happiest memory of this movie is seeing Colin Farrell gingerly sniff the mug of brown liquid and then take a sip. “That’s fockin’ delish,” he says. Couldn’t somebody be persuaded to run this line on the poster?

For a moment I thought you meant this from Peter Serafinowicz and Robert Popper:
