Mediaite author Jon Bershad sat down with 'The B.S. of A.' host Brian Sack and showrunner Jack Helmuth just a few hours before the season finale of GBTV's new comedy show. What were some of their favorite sketches? And did you know it's a bad idea to pepper spray a freelance comedy actor in the face?

Bershad writes:

So, Season 1 is in the can. Lets start with the highlights. What were both of your favorite moments or segments from the season?

BRIAN: Certain sketches we’ve done resonated with people across the political spectrum and that’s wonderful because it means we don’t always have to be sanctimonious, bitter tw-ts to one another.The TSA opera, for one. And taking on the nanny state whether it’s buying cigarettesordering lunch, or driving the Chevy Bloomberg. I’m also partial to Shariah Law & Order. And Pumpernickel Boulevard which is our interpretation of Sesame Street.

We’ve also been soliciting “under-the-table” sponsors outside of the network’s actual sponsors. These are small businesses across the U.S. that send the show money to produce a commercial of questionable effectiveness that usually ends with someone getting killed. Ridiculous commercials. We’ve done quite a few and the response has always been great. With the money we made I bought the staff iPads and a very nice dinner. The remaining money factors in to the season finale in a big way.

JACK: To be honest, I’ve never seen the show, so I’m the wrong guy to ask.

A lot of shows, perhaps comedy shows in particular, require a bit of a learning curve in the beginning. What was something that surprised you or needed some course correction?

BRIAN: Like any show you’re starting off flailing around in the dark before getting your bearings. The great thing is that we’re this autonomous show on a fledgling network. We don’t have to answer to a room full of corporate suits. That’s not the culture here. We ultimately just have to amuse an excitable goateed man with an Armageddon complex whose weight fluctuates wildly. We can try one thing, decide it doesn’t work, and try another.

We had a live audience at first but that proved difficult logistically since we taped weekly at an inconvenient time for a no-name show on a network owned by someone New Yorkers burn in effigy. We had monologue jokes but started feeling like everyone has monologue jokes so we played around with that and ultimately dropped them. I was interviewing authors, but who doesn’t do that? So we changed it to a The Experts, where I discuss the news with people, living or dead, played by Upright Citizen’s Brigade performers. If you’ve ever wanted to hear Adolf HitlerMichele Obamaand a lesbian truck driver opine on breastfeeding in public, we’re your show.

JACK: Back in December we were going to do an experimental piece that dealt with the big pepper spray debate that was raging at the time. Police were using pepper spray quite liberally on protesters around the country and FOX News anchor Megyn Kelly essentially said that it was no big deal since pepper spray was made from vegetables. Matt Fisher, our writer and performer, came up with an idea where I would eat Newman’s Own spicy salsa and he would then actually get pepper sprayed in the face and we would see if Megyn Kelly was right. We debated and argued this internally for a full day and finally decided to do it. Matt, after all, came up with the idea and, for the sake of comedy and to make a point, wanted to get pepper sprayed in the face. So I, in my excitement to really do something different, allowed things, gave this the go-ahead, and we shot well over half the sketch until the very point where Matt was going to get sprayed. We were literally seconds away, with our PA standing in front of Matt, holding the spray up to his face, finger on the trigger. At that moment someone from the network intervened and we were told “no, you absolutely cannot pepper spray a freelance employee in the face.” And of course, they were right. That was a learning moment for me in a number of ways.

The far Left has intensified its push toward Marxism for months now, but it's more than clever catchphrases or slogans. Their radical rhetoric and policies have violent consequences.

Calls to defund the police have led to officers being ambushed and killed. Crime is spiking in record amounts all over the country. Critical race theory has the government, corporations, and now schools brainwashing Americans to believe the entire system is systemically racist. And it's paved the way for actual violence in the streets from groups like Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck exposes their endgame: tearing the entire system down. Marxists did this in the Soviet Union and China, among other places. Millions died, and the first to feel the brunt were always the landowners and farmers. The most recent example of this is happening in South Africa, where Glenn reveals terrifying on-the-ground interviews.

As American farmers now also face unprecedented racial discrimination by our federal government, award-winning South African journalist Lara Logan warns of what could happen if the seeds of Marxism aren't uprooted now.

Glenn Beck has been warning since last summer that you would not recognize your country in a year. Well, it's not even summer yet, and he says he already doesn't recognize the country.

Do you recognize an America in which people are making more money off government unemployment benefits than they can make by working, inflation is ramping up, housing, supply and labor shortages are widespread, and the current administration gives cybercriminals from Russia a free pass after the biggest cyberattack on our nation's infrastructure to date?

On the radio program this week, Glenn pointed out that while businesses all over the nation are downsizing, one brand store is actually booming — and it says a lot about the state of the economy and what it means for our country's future.

The largest American gas pipeline shut down on Friday due to what experts told the media was the "most dramatic cyberattack on U.S. soil to date." Investigators are looking at a group believed to be based in Russia known as "DarkSide."

It's time our leaders in the White House take national security seriously because this isn't the first time enemies of the U.S. — namely Russia and China — have used the cyber world to attack our nation and weaken our infrastructure, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program. Between Russia, China, and Iran — which President Joe Biden is now trying to make another nuclear deal with — it looks like the "Axis powers" of a "digital World War III" are lining up

"The journalists seem to care about the price of gasoline for the first time. Is it because they actually care? Or is it because they're trying not to focus on the fact that this was an attack most likely from Russia? And it isn't the first cyberattack from Russia of the year ... maybe we should be paying attention, to Vladimir Putin," Glenn began.

"And by the way, the pipeline going down, that's not the only [cyberattack] happening now," he added later. "Thirty thousand U.S. victims, small businesses and local governments, were hacked by cyber espionage units backed by the Chinese government in January of this year."

"There is an 'Axis power.' It is Russia and China. And, by the way, who is also aligned with Russia and China? Iran. Wow, this is weird," Glenn surmised. "But don't worry about that. Just leave your dog tags on another table. Let's not talk about China. Let's not talk about who actually crashed the jugular of our oil pipelines. I don't want war. But I got news for you ... this Biden administration is doing the job for our enemies."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."
