Two of the quirkiest musicians around, Les Claypool and Dean Ween, are teaming up with two of the funniest people in the world, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, to create a reality show. NJ.com is reporting that the show will "fuse sport fishing with music and comedy, following Melchiondo [Ween] and Claypool as they go out on the water with celebrity guests".
Over the past few years, Ween has been giving fishing trips along the Jersey coast. Fans travel from all across the country for the chance to spend a day on the boat with a rock star.
Claypool also wrote the theme song for South Park, adding just another connection to this almost perfect marriage of music and comedy. Ween told NJ.com,
"The idea is to get the show on after Anthony Bourdain or Tosh.O. It's a fishing show that you do not have to be into fishing to enjoy".
The show has a chance to be pure gold. Matt Stone and Trey Parker don't generally make unfunny things, and we can't imagine them putting their names on something that isn't gold. It's also a nice way for Dean to stay in the public eye after the demise of Ween.
