Chuckle Sandwich is a comedy podcast hosted by YouTubers Ted Nivison, Jschlatt, and (formerly) Slimecicle. In it, the three friends talk about "a multitude of world shattering topics everyone should care about", ranging from video games and current events to a heated debate about cookies. They occasionally bring on fellow content creators as guests, such as JaidenAnimations, CaptainSparklez, and many more.

The podcast can be found on YouTube here and Spotify here.

Chuckle Sandwich contains examples of:

  • Cat Folk: Ted's character in the second Chuckle Dungeon episode is Jim Lion, an anthropomorphic lion.
  • Character Catchphrase: "Audio listeners, love you to death" for Ted.
  • Crocodile Tears: Played for Laughs by Schlatt, as a frequent bit of his is crying at entirely innocuous things (such as listing the members of the Black Eyed Peas).
  • Eat That: When filming episodes with guests in personnote , the hosts almost always make them drink some thick waternote . Judging by the guests' reactions, it's pretty disgusting.
  • Hot Blooded Sideburns: Schlatt's famous mutton chops.
  • If I Can't Have You…: Played for Laughs at the end of episode 54. When Charlie announces he's leaving the podcast, Schlatt and Ted send a bomb to his house so nobody else can get their hands on him.
  • Out-of-Genre Experience: The Chuckle Dungeon episodes temporarily turn the show into a Dungeons and Dragons podcast, with Charlie running short campaigns for Ted and Schlatt to play.
  • Power Trio: Ted, Charlie and Schlatt are certainly a force to be reckoned with, as all three have fairly loud and chaotic personalities.
  • Pun-Based Title: The podcast's name is play on 'knuckle sandwich'.
  • Pungeon Master: Charlie Slimecicle is known for making puns in all content he's involved in, and Chuckle Sandwich is no exception. He's joked that he has to make at least one pun in every episode.
  • Running Gag: Too many to count.
    • "Would you rather have unlimited bacon but no more games, or games, unlimited games, and no games?"
    • Thick water makes an appearance in almost every Chuckle Week episode.
    • Favorite puppy.
  • Stat-O-Vision: Mentioned in episode 40, when Schlatt asks a completely nonsensical question about whether aliens have visual meters and then refuses to elaborate.
  • Take My Hand!: Discussed by Charlie in episode two, after Schlatt jokes that he wants to be able to curl an Xbox controller.
    Charlie: You know those scenes in the movies where they're like "take my hand!", and they grab the hand, and they're barely holding on to each other? I'm just picturing that from a bottom angle coming up at Schlatt, watching this controller gradually slip out of his hands.
  • Team Dad: Ted's the founder of the podcast, and sometimes takes on this role within the group. He's frequently the one trying to stop Charlie and Schlatt from yelling over each other, or keeping their discussion from straying too far from the current topic, especially during guest episodes.
  • Token Good Teammate: In a podcast where the humor can get pretty chaotic or dark, Charlie Slimecicle is a consistent beacon of goodness (at least in comparison to his co-hosts). In Charlie's last episode as an official member, Ted and Schlatt joke that they're likely to get into some real trouble without him there to rein them in.
    Schlatt: Charlie is an actual saint walking among men. I cannot think of one negative thing to say about you.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: The show contains plenty of arguments, yelling, and playful insults, but ultimately it's all lighthearted and the three hosts are clearly very good friends.
