The Flop House
About the Podcast
The Flop House is a bi-monthly audio podcast, devoted to the worst in recent film. Your hosts (Elliott Kalan, Dan McCoy, and Stuart Wellington) watch a questionable film just before each episode, and then engage in an unscripted, slightly inebriated discussion, focusing on the movie's shortcomings and occasional delights.

He performs infrequently as a stand-up, the highlight of which was taking part in a USO Tour of Afghanistan. He’s also performed as one half of the sketch duo The Hypocrites, as co-host of the internet radio show Fist City, and host of no less than three different untelevised talk shows with his name in the title. He graduated from NYU’s Dramatic Writing Program in 2002. And yes, that’s his actual voice. Stuart Wellington was born in Indiana, USA to Mark and Shelley Wellington. He did poorly in grammar school and went on to an undistinguished career at Earlham College. One day everything changed. He found a magical amulet in an old trunk that was once owned by his great grandfather. It turns out that Stuart is the last remaining member of an ancient royal family of some bullshit fantasy world. Only he can set right what is wrong, and cast the Dark One back into the Abyss. Instead, he is going to spend his time watching shitty movies and eating hamburgers.
