History of Laffcast.com
January 2009, Chris Scamuffa and Nick Kupsey form The KupMuff Show, a weekly one hour podcast, which operated from CMuff's parent's basement in Upper Darby, PA.
March 2009, Branden "The Drizzle" joins The KupMuff Show. Leaves in March 2010.
May 2009, The KupMuff Show performs their first Live Event broadcast from Barnaby's of America in Havertown, PA. The room is so full and loud, no one can hear the show occurring. A recording of this 3 hour travesty does exist. Music notably by Radiohead tribute band, Meeting in the Aisle. And not so notably by, Last Kids Picked.
September 2009, CMuff became a big boy and bought his own home in Media, PA. And the studio equipment moved with him out of his parent's basement into his own basement.
March 2010, Steve Ippy becomes co-host of KupMuff. Leaves in July 2010.
March 2010, CMuff attempted stand-up comedy for the first time at Cantina Diablos Mexican bar and restaurant, and quickly realizes after 2 more feeble attempts that he's not cut out for the stage.
April 2010, Nick Kupsey attempted stand-up comedy for the first time at Cantina Diablos Mexican bar and restaurant. He later attends Helium Comedy Club's school of comedy, and is still performing stand-up to this day.
September 2010, Joanne Mac becomes co-host of KupMuff. She is still with them today. In March 2013, Joanne recorded her 100th KupMuff show, dubbed The Joanne Show.
October 2010, CMuff meets the diabolical N.A. Poe, who asks to start using the studio equipment for his own weekly one hour show, The Panic Hour, which began in February 2011. Here Laffcast.com was born, as to support two podcasts from one website, which is locally hosted/housed at Laffcast.
May 2011, The KupMuff Show returns to Barnaby's of America in Havertown, PA with MMA pal, Sam Oropeza for a Take Two rendition of their Live Event. It was not as good a turn out as the first show, but definitely a fun event which benefited Sam's Autism Awareness foundation. Performances by comedians Evan Marz, Nick Abate and Omar Scruggs. Music by Mike Nappi and Timaro Sadiq.
October 2011, Joe Mayo's powerful presence on The Panic Hour merited him his own weekly one hour show, Verbal Assault.
December 2011, The KupMuff Show celebrated their 100th show.
January 2012, Jay West and Eric Todd co-hosted the weekly one hour show, The Donkey Show. Moving over to Laffcast from Volta Radio. But only after a short eleven show run, as of July 2012, The Donkey Show no longer operates from Laffcast.com.

(Former co-hosts: Chris Mas, Chris Mezz and Beth McNulty)
August 2012, Christian "Mezz" Grey and Tom "TR" Robinson created the weekly one hour show, Danger-Radio. Shortly after starting, Mezz and TR had a falling out, and TR continued Danger-Radio with his new co-host, Greg Lynn. Mezz and TR have since made up, and the show now has 3 co-hosts. This show has provided some of the most popular or recognizable guests to appear on Laffcast to date. For example, former Philadelphia Eagle running back, Thomas Tapeh and legendary wrestlers from Terry Funk and Tully Blanchard to New Jack.
Also August 2012, Canadian football enthusiasts Eric Todd and co-host Steve Rees, along with their pals Dan Friel, John Kensil and Darin Martinez begin their weekly one hour show, EricToddcast. "Eric Todd, the only comedian in America with his own podcast." A world wide phenomenon known as "Old fat lady in a fanny pack, sitting outside a paint ball place" originated from this show.

Studio Photos of Laffcast.com
2009 - First ever studio setup for The KupMuff Show. This was a corner of CMuff's parent's basement in Upper Darby, PA. Yes, their guests used to sit behind them, because they had no idea what they were doing.
2009/2010 - Second setup. The KupMuff Show gets wise and introduces a bigger table for a better "round table" effect.
2010/2011 - Third setup in CMuff's new house in Media, PA - If you use the black and white face (NMuff) in this picture hanging on the wall as a guide, compare it to the "2011 to present" pictures below for the same face. It's hanging in the same spot on the same exact wall.
2011 - Fourth setup, the new overhaul. Popularity is picking up, and separating the engineering equipment from the table was a must.
