Sean Evans Eats L.A.'s Spiciest Fried Chicken with Brian Redban | Sean in the Wild

  • Published on Feb 28, 2017
  • At Howlin' Ray's in L.A.'s Chinatown, chef Johnny Zone and his wife Amanda have created a sensation with their Nashville-style hot chicken, which regularly attracts hour-long lines of poultry-loving spice fiends. There are six advertised heat levels-so, needless to say, Hot Ones host Sean Evans had to go try the off-menu level seven, which is packed with Carolina Reaper. Watch him struggle through the fire with comedian Brian Redban.

    Next time you eat something that bad, you look at ground below your feet with an open mouth and push the saliva out. Just let it drain out. Works within a few minutes.

    Funny thing is that Redban wasn't intending to be a comedian. He used to host livestreams for Joe Rogan, among doing the engineering. He pretty much is the reason why JRE is big today, especially as a visual podcast. After he parted with JRE he continued working on his podcast network DEATHSQUAD where he continued hosting other shows by other comedians and through them he got to know a lot of people in LA. I guess somewhere along the way he decided to give stand-up a shot, but he really sucked at first (as most comedians do). I have yet to see any stand-ups of his in recent time, but knowing Redban he's probably veeeery toilet humor. Catch him on the Kill Tony show tour with his raunchy comments!

    They anesthetize the chickens before butchering to make the meat more tender. I say people are standing in a four hour line because the residual drug has turned them all into junkies.
