SectionsEdit

Each episode features an interview and a music segment. In addition, Rollins' monologues and other short segments are organized into several sections that are shown occasionally throughout the episodes.

Teeing OffEdit

Rollins gives a short social commentary at the beginning of the show.

Letters from HenryEdit

Rollins does a voice-over of humorous/sarcastic open letters he has written to celebrities and politicians.

Rollins ReconsidersEdit

Rollins gives a sarcastically exaggerated "positive" speech, interspersed with humorous imagery (often photo manipulations), in which Rollins "reconsiders" a fad or issue he actually disapproves of.

The DisquisitionEdit

Comedian and political activist Janeane Garofalo shares her free-form musings in monologues filmed in her apartment.

Drawing ConclusionsEdit

Nine animated monologue segments were produced by Lylofilm for Swift River Productions and IFC during the show's two-year run. Rollins appeared as a stand-up comedian and his spoken word stories were animated with 2D visuals depicting his jokes and performance. The nine animated segments produced were titled: METHOD ACTING (with Danny DeVito); JUNK MAIL; WALL MART; CEDRIC; A TEXAS BARBECUE (with George W. Bush and Saddam Hussein); JESUS (with Jesus Christ); HIS GAY NEIGHBORS; TEEN ALCOHOLICA and NUTS ABOUT HENRY.

IFC SoapboxEdit

Individuals from both sides of a debate (example topics from the show include pornography and same-sex marriage) are given a soapbox on which they can express their views.

End CreditsEdit

Rollins draws attention to lesser-known facts regarding historical figures and/or the work of actors and directors.

DVD and iTunes releaseEdit

Season one was released as a three disc DVD box set on June 5, 2007. Both seasons of the show are available for download from the iTunes Store as of February, 2010.
