TBS Sullivan & Son bracket challenge

 

 

TBS Show Page

The bar regulars are back for another round of laughs as Sullivan & Son returns for its third season this June on TBS. Starring popular comedian Steve Byrne, Sullivan & Son is executive-produced by Vince Vaughn. With a dynamic and diverse cast of characters, the show brings outrageous humor and politically incorrect zingers that only friends and family can get away with. Especially when they’ve had a beer or two at their favorite bar.

Given their affinity for smack-talking, we engaged the show's four comedians -- Roy, Owen, Steve and Ahmed -- to offer weekly insight (or lack of insight) every Wednesday on their featured bracket, tipping off with their bracket challenge choices:

Roy

When it gets down to the final four, you gotta look at mascots. You have a Badger, Gator, Husky and a Wildcat. If you put all four of these animals in a cage, which would win? I think the answer is a gator -- even though the gator is large and lacks mobility. We can all agree that a gator would thrash a badger and a wildcat. ... The husky might have a chance but the gator is just too large. My name is Roy Wood Jr. and I'm an animal expert.

Owen

I know nothing about college basketball -- and I won. Hello, laaaaaadies ... ;-)

Steve

My bracket is absolutely embarrassing. It's a rare feat to declare: I am in 11,388th place. Are you even competing when you are in 11,388th place? So, I'm all Wisconsin, all the way for two reasons. First, I consider myself a midwesterner, and second, I'm all about beer and cheese. And any excuse, win or lose, to jump into the deep end is always welcome in my world.

Ahmed

March Madness was out of control last weekend! All I can say is that Kentucky, in a nail-biter, pulled off that last-minute 3-point clincher for the win against Michigan. They have a lot of heart and I'd like to see them win the Final Four.
