Episode 34: National Security (2003) & Witless Protection (2008) (/w Jesse Hawken)

On the latest episode of Eric Roberts is the Man we GIT-ER-DONE with the help of comedy legends Martin Lawrence and Larry The Cable Guy! First up is the action-comedy NATIONAL SECURITY, which cleverly mines police brutality for plenty of (terrible, unfunny) humor! Then we go down south for 2008’s WITLESS PROTECTION which is utter, utter garbage. Also, Eric Roberts is in both of them! Poor Jesse Hawken had to join us for this cavalcade of pain, so do him a favor and LISTEN!

As always, check out ERIC ROBERTS IS THE MAN on Twitter, or come chat ER (or anything else) on our Facebook group. Don’t forget to head over to iTunes to subscribe and rate the show. If you like it.. tell a friend! Our theme song is (unofficially) officially endorsed by ERIC ROBERTS!
