And instead of using Google to find out if they play Would You Rather?, what Andy is doing to get in shape, or how Werner's war on nature is going, just give this episode a listen and you'll get your answers!

Mon, 12 Dec 2011
We have a lot of fun here on Comedy Bang Bang, but this week we'd like to share an important holiday message with you all. You see, the holidays are a time for friendship, giving, forgiveness, cakes, and Would You Rather?! This week is a merry celebration of all of that and more. Our joyful carolers are Erinn Hayes, Dan Telfer, and Paul F. Tompkins who is mysteriously absent when our good friend Cake Boss drops by. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll learn a thing or two!

Bride of Chucky
Mon, 05 Dec 2011
This week's Comedy Bang Bang serves as a forum to learn about show business from some of the industry's biggest names. From Kevin Nealon auditioning for Cheers to Ben Schwartz freelancing for Saturday Night Live, you'll have an earful of exclusive knowledge before you can say "What's Up Hotdog?" And while Kevin and Ben have their fair share of insider stories, you'll never believe what Jennifer Tilly has to say about her movies, her manager, her sister, and her breasts. Be sure to pick up your tickets for the 2011 Comedy Bang Bang Nativity Pageant and start getting yourself in the Christmas spirit with The Complete Comedy Bang Bang Christmas Collection .

Patton Oswalt is back in the Comedy Bang Bang hot seat! Fortunately, he has a new movie coming out and he's ready to give us all sorts of exclusive information. Unfortunately, we still have our open door policy and a gentleman named Leslie Schecter finds his way into the studio. Fortunately, Patton was still game for Would You Rather? and Fortunately Unfortunately despite this rude interruption. Unfortunately, Leslie hangs around for the rest of the episode. Fortunately, you can forget all about his rudeness and relive your favorite Comedy Bang Bang moments by heading to the Earwolf blog and voting for the CBB Best of 2011.

At the intersection of comedy, music, and fashion lies this week's Comedy Bang Bang. Margaret Cho and Grant-Lee Phillips provide the score for the episode in addition to delighting us with tales of the 90s and fun rounds of What Am I Thinking? and Would You Rather?! David Wain is the comedy legend you'd expect him to be, but by the end of the episode you'll be in awe of his keyboard skills. Dov Charney came here to talk about American Apparel and he does. That part is pretty straightforward. But throw it all together and you have a podcast stew to whet your pre-Thanksgiving appetite. Speaking of stew, head over to the Earwolf store and pick up The Complete Comedy Bang Bang Christmas Collection . All proceeds go to the LA Regional Food Bank.
Mayor of Hollywood
Mon, 14 Nov 2011
It's sure been a while since Jason Mantzoukas popped in for an episode of Comedy Bang Bang. And I don't know about you, but I could really use a good interruption from a total stranger! We get the best of both worlds this week as Scott and Jason are joined by Chip Gardner, former television personality and (hopefully) future Honorary Mayor of Hollywood. Enjoy, and if Chip's spiritual wellness inspires you to give, consider buying The Complete Comedy Bang Bang Christmas Collection. All proceeds go to the LA Regional Food Bank.
Mon, 07 Nov 2011
This is not a prank! We really do have Jenny Slate from SNL and Elizabeth Laime from the Totally Laime Podcast on the show! Joining them is legendary actor Fagin Platt, son of Oliver Platt (the Canadian-American actor currently starring in the Showtime original series, The Big C with Laura Linney). If you listen carefully you might hear a surprise cameo from a legendary basketball player and prankster. Be sure to check out the new Earwolf Youtube channel for clips, videos, and exclusive content like a sneak peek at next week's episode on Wednesday. Lastly, if you're looking to make some purchases on Amazon, please do so through our affiliate link and a portion of the money will go to Earwolf.

Mon, 31 Oct 2011
It seems as though every year around this time something awfully spooky washes over this podcast and takes it in a devilish direction. I'm sorry to say that this year is no different, with guests like the dreadful Beuford and Messmore le Barron of Suicide House and the frightful Ghost Boy. Hopefully the positive energy of Neil Campbell will be enough to prevent your nightmares, but I won't make any promises! If you find yourself too scared following this episode, follow these directions: Listen to the Bumbershoot Comedy Bang Bang recordings , and swaddle yourself in a warm Comedy Bang Bang t-shirt . If that doesn't work, well then I suppose we've done our job. Muahaha!
Coach? Coach? Coach?
Mon, 24 Oct 2011
Boy, what a fun episode of Comedy Bang Bang we have today! Our old friend Harris Wittels is in the studio with a brand new edition of Harris' Foam Corner. Our new friend Jon Heder makes a great first impression with an impressive round of Harris' favorite game What Am I Thinking?! To top it off, our new acquaintance (I hesitate to call him a friend) Hank Williams, Jr. offers up some commentary straight from the zeitgeist and inspires a round of Alive or Dead as well as a ghastly rap battle. Making friends, cracking jokes, learning about each other, isn't that what Comedy Bang Bang is all about?
Mon, 17 Oct 2011
How many ingredients are in pizza? Can you high five an orangutan? What does the moon do when we're not looking? The answers to these questions and more can be found in today's Comedy Bang Bang! Nick Swardson finally found his way back to the studio and is joined by two first time guests: Comedian Brody Stevens and Nic Cage stand-in (and brother) Bob Cage. They guess the misheard lyrics, get on their soap boxes, and ponder "Would You Rather?" their way into Comedy Bang Bang history! And hey, you too can be part of Comedy Bang Bang history too if you pick up either of our new shirts from the Earwolf Store !
Suicide is Painless
Mon, 10 Oct 2011
The leaves are falling, there is a chill in the air, the kids are at school so it's time to curl up with a brand new Comedy Bang Bang. Our guests are the always charming Jon Hamm, the hugely influential Nick Lowe, and Garry Marshall. Jon teases the next season of Mad Men, Nick plays some incredible tracks off his new album The Old Magic, and Garry Marshall does the whole Garry Marshall thing. You get an Autumn Rap, a laugh-filled Would You Rather, and an excellent round of plugs that will no doubt lead you to some sexy discoveries. So throw on a cardigan, grab a pumpkin spice latte, and relax to a perfect fall podcast. And hey, if that's not enough for you, visit Earwolf.com for bonus interview content from Nick Lowe! Perfect for pumpkin carving and apple cider drinking!
Wine in the Whirlpool
Mon, 03 Oct 2011
It's been way too long since our good friends Sarah Silverman and Nick Kroll stopped by! They join singer Dan Mangan this week for a "haha lol" Comedy Bang Bang complete with surprise appearances from Bobby Bottleservice and Nick's "Old Lady" Erma. It's occasionally philosophical (why don't men wear dresses?) and perhaps a little inside about Hollywood (Bobby B has some big plans for Sarah's career), but at the end of the day it's still a good ol' Comedy Bang Bang complete with Would You Rather? and Plugs! Sip some brandy and enjoy!
Bro-ing Out Pt Deux
Mon, 26 Sep 2011
I don't know about you guys, but I've still got some bro in my system and I gotta get it out! Enter Todd Barry, Nick Thune, and Matthew Sweet who join Scott for an hour of songs, games, stories, Hot Topics, and bro time. I mean, what else do you need to know? Oh, that Matthew Sweet's new album Modern Art comes out tomorrow. A perfect soundtrack for bro-ing out!
No Scoop for You
Mon, 19 Sep 2011
Break the monotony of this Manic Monday with a new Comedy Bang Bang featuring Amy Poehler, The Bangles, and possibly the biggest guest we've ever had, David Fiene! Amy and Scott gab about the original UCB pilot and the alternative comedy scene of the '90s, but that's nothing compared to the showbiz stories David has to offer. David came up with some of the biggest legends of comedy (I'm not going to namedrop, but he certainly will) and has walls and walls of quotes and advice for young comedic upstarts. Match that with the dulcet tones of The Bangles and the rap stylings of our guests and you've got an hour and a half of aural decadence. Would you rather listen to this episode or go about your humdrum day? I thought so!
Shanghaied by Irene
Mon, 12 Sep 2011
Welcome to Comedy Bang Bang! As today is our first day on Funny Or Die, we've pulled out all the stops and brought in some of the most talented folks we know. Folks like Zach Galifianakis from The Hangover and Between Two Ferns. Folks like famed film director (and friend of Paul F. Tompkins) Werner Herzog. And who better to score this star-struck episode than Yo La Tengo, gods of alt rock. If this is your first episode, enjoy! If you're a long time listener: Be on your best behavior, we're having company!
Mon, 05 Sep 2011
On a hot summer day, what could be better than chilling out with a bunch of bros? Nothing, that's what! Rob Delaney, Jimmy Pardo, and Paul Rust join Scott for the ultimate Comedy Bang Bang chill sesh. They play some games, chat about some hot topics, and participate in other bro activities (brotivities, if you will). Grab some bros of your own, and dig in!
Farts and Procreation
Mon, 29 Aug 2011
This week's episode of Comedy Bang Bang is devoted to all the Parks and Recreation fans in the audience. We've jam packed the show with Parks and Rec insiders from Chelsea Peretti to Harris Wittels and even Adam Scott! If you like the unique cast of crazies that Pawnee offers, you'll love hearing Chelsea Peretti's brand new characters. Maybe you watch the show for the compelling relationships: Prepare for the deep, meaningful, fascinating relationship between Jack and his brother-in-law Bryan from Carl's Lumber Yard. This episode will answer ALL your Parks and Recreation questions, as long as your questions are "How many episodes have there been?" and "What's the name of Adam's character?"
Andi Callahan, RN
Mon, 22 Aug 2011
They say laughter is the best medicine. If that is the case, take out your IV and put it your earbuds because we have a great new episode of Comedy Bang Bang for you! We have two first time guests: Gillian Jacobs and Andi Callahan. We all know Gillian from NBC's Community and if you aren't a fan of Andi yet, you will be once you hear his hilarious tales of working as a nurse. The laughs just keep coming this week, so protect your funny bone and get me 119 CCs of CBB, stat!
Mon, 15 Aug 2011
Since our last episode with Patton Oswalt was so rudely interrupted, we have asked him back on to discuss his upcoming special, Finest Hour. Unfortunately, in true Comedy Bang Bang fashion we receive an unexpected visit from a stranger so strange I can't even begin to describe who he is, what he does, or how he got to the studio. Our apologies to Patton Oswalt purists: We promise (but cannot guarantee) to have him back soon on a far less gassy episode.
Can't Never Did Nothing
Mon, 08 Aug 2011
This week's Comedy Bang Bang is perfect for all our ambitious listeners looking to make their dreams come true. Hear how director Ruben Fleischer created a career in comedy which has afforded him the chance to meet his idols. Be inspired by Ultimate Frisbee Advocate Sam Darling who has never let his dreams of playing the game fall to the wayside. Not every story has a happy ending though, like the infamous story of David Cross trying to play basketball with Bob Odenkirk. However, if you have dreamed of an episode with Would You Rather?, Hollywood Facts, AND a plane break, I think you'll feel satisfied once all is said and done.
When I Go To Queens...
Mon, 01 Aug 2011
With summer almost over, we knew we had to have Marissa Wompler back on the show before she goes back to school. Womp It Up! With her is "Tough But Fair" Todd Glass who teaches Marissa how to get started in comedy. Subaru! The episode is chock full of games and stories, including the much anticipated follow-up to Todd's Subaru story from his last appearance, so listen up and check out Todd's new podcast which premieres next month on Nerdist!
The Plug-In Drug
Mon, 25 Jul 2011
Paul Rudd freestyle raps in this episode. There is a lot more I could tell you, but that should have sold it. Does he talk with David Wain and Ken Marino about Wet Hot American Summer? Yes, of course, but he also freestyle raps. They play What Am I Thinking? and Would You Rather? but you probably already know that because you're already listening because I told you that Paul Rudd freestyle raps in this episode. Kind of a lot. What else needs to be said?
Hats Off to Caruso
Mon, 18 Jul 2011
The Earwolf studio is experiencing a British Invasion! They're coming to Attack the Block and we're too Spaced to call the Hot Fuzz. It feels like Earwolf Vs. The World and hopefully we won't end up (Shaun of the) Dead (okay, I'm done now). Joe Cornish and Edgar Wright are our special guests who earn their keep in a heated game of Hollywood Facts and a rousing round of Would You Rather. Representing for the US of A is songwriter and entrepreneur Martin Riley who helps us with the creative process of penning a tune for a special occasion. Go see Attack the Block and check out Martin's friend Matt Besser on Earwolf's very own competition show The Earwolf Challenge.
Mon, 11 Jul 2011
Stars- They're just like us! Bobby Moynihan from Saturday Night Live joins us this week and proves his comedy nerd cred with an impressive knowledge of SNL history that will embarrass even the nerdiest of listeners. Our old friend Ozzie Patinkin (no relation) of the Bakery for Dogs returns and tells us about dog treats, dog costumes, dog amputation, dog guns, and so on and so forth. Another old friend is back: Hollywood Facts! It joins Would You Rather? in this episode that defies reality and begs the question "How far would you go for a Plane Break?"
Since You've Been Gone
Tue, 05 Jul 2011
It's been five long months since "Weird Al" Yankovic last left his mark on Comedy Bang Bang. In that time he has released his highest charting album to date with Alpocalypse and he's in studio to discuss the recording of the album as well as his worst gig ever and his nerdy relationship with groupies. It's been even longer since Dame Sir Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber flounced his way into the show, and thank God he's here to once again jazz up the Would You Rather theme song and offer up parody ideas to Al. If you haven't yet, be sure to read How The Bread Is Made , Scott's blog series about the making of Comedy Bang Bang.
Hi, How Are You?
Fri, 01 Jul 2011
Two Comedy Bang Bangs in one week? Why, this must be a Christmas miracle! I bet this is how all those homeless people felt when David Guy Levy, producer of the upcoming film Terri, generously gave to the LA Food Bank this past Christmas. However, as you'll learn from this episode, his donation was not completely selfless: He got to co-host Comedy Bang Bang! Along with mostly-enjoyed guest Harris Wittels and a special surprise guest he brought himself, David guides us through segments like Harris' Phone Corner and the What's Up Hot Dog Memorial Plugs. Be sure to see Terri this weekend! David supports us so let's support him!
Mon, 27 Jun 2011
With a cascade of puns, a round of "no, but" style improvisation, an appearance of cake bugs, and latent racism, this is a classic Comedy Bang Bang waiting to happen. Our guests are Colin Hanks and Myq Kaplan who match wits on What Am I Thinking? while throwing down on Would You Rather?. We also have an appearance by Kylie Bloom (I think) who is the editor of Spa Magazine (I think) and shares the Cake Boss' gift of the second sight (that one I know for sure). I can neither confirm nor deny the appearance of a certain deceased hip hop legend, but I can tell you that you will give this episode a Thumbs Yes!
The Andy Samberg Special
Mon, 20 Jun 2011
This is a show for lovers of Hollywood, pizza, marijuana, and plane breaks. Our guest this week is Andy Samberg from The Lonely Island and Saturday Night Live who gives us the inside scoop on creating a record and working with talents like Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga. There is an unfortunate appearance by Scott's weed guy Bro, but we make up for it with a great game of Would You Rather and the first Comedy Bang Bang semi-prank call. And yes, there are plane breaks.
Mon, 13 Jun 2011
Comedy Bang Bang welcomes back an old friend this week with Rob Corddry. With him comes his beautiful and hilarious Childrens Hospital co-star Erinn Hayes who has a kind word for everyone in the room. Even the despicable and disgusting Dov Charney of American Apparel is subject to Erinn's kindess, despite his repeated attempts to violate her in the most sustainable, organic way possible. With the return of Mr. Corddry, we also see the return of past features What Am I Thinking? and Jukebox Jury. If you're curious about future episodes of Childrens Hospital (how can you not be?) or want to hear about Scott's past experience as an American Apparel model (I mean, come on now!), tune on in to Comedy Bang Bang!
Maybe It's Maybelline
Mon, 06 Jun 2011
In podcasting, you do a lot of things you don't want to do. This episode isn't one of those things! Our guests are the hilarious John Mulaney and Nick Kroll. You know what that means? We'll hear some of their classic characters like Freckle Face and John's Uncle Cowboy. Learn "how the bread is made" on Saturday Night Live and how Law & Order has informed John's comedy career. Come for the Plane Break, stay for the Plugs!
It's A Fucking Podcast: Pt. 2
Mon, 30 May 2011
By now you've had a week to dream up possibilities for this episode. Will Cake Boss be able to reach Chewbacca? Will he be bitten by a radioactive cake animal? Will Buddy and Andy Richter play Would You Rather and figure out the origin of steampunk culture? I won't spoil anything for you, but there WILL be plugs so listen up! Be sure to check out the newly renovated Earwolf website complete with new features, new apps, new merch, and new donation opportunities.
It's a Fucking Podcast: Pt 1
Mon, 23 May 2011
If you aren't yet glad you survived the rapture, you will be once you hear this episode of Comedy Bang Bang! Not only do we have the hilarious and talented Andy Richter, but we receive a visit from Earwolf's very own Harold Camping: CAKE BOSS! Buddy Valastro tells us what heaven is like, just in case the rapture is upon us, and presents us with yet another bone-chilling tale of cake and death. There is just enough time for Who Said It before we put Buddy's cake trance on hold for next week. Catch the exciting conclusion next Tuesday on Earwolf.
Comedy is Honey
Mon, 16 May 2011
There are three things our listeners have come to expect from Comedy Bang Bang: Inside information about Hollywood, brilliant improvisers, and drunken English roller-blading Christmas trees. Well this week is no exception! Matt Walsh makes a welcome return and brings with him The Hangover 2 co-writer Scot Armstrong and entertainment legend Sappity Tappity. Alive or Dead is resurrected, along with the Improv Scene of the Week, and we get a batch of limericks, a look into Hollywood auditions, and some post-improv chit chat. Join us on the Comedy Bang Bang Facebook page if you haven't yet, and leave your comments here on Earwolf .
Shut Up Dracula!
Sun, 15 May 2011
Welcome to Hobo Chat, hosted by Scottabot Saucerman. This week, our bumbling argumentative hobos are joined by noted television and film director Paul Feig and acclaimed sketch group The Birthday Boys. In between the drug deals and dumpster diving, if you listen carefully you can hear Paul talk about working on the movie Bridesmaids, and The Birthday Boys pitch some movies of their own. Get your first ever glimpse inside the Earwolf Studios Antechamber and the celebrities we're storing in there for future episodes. Be sure to "like" Comedy Bang Bang on Facebook , and send your Would You Rather questions to the Comedy Bang Bang WYR Twitter
These Times They Are A-Changin'
Sun, 15 May 2011
It's finally here: The Two Year Anniversary Celebration of Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast! There are big changes afoot in the CBB universe about which you will hear in this episode, but many things are staying exactly the same. You can still expect hilarious guests like Paul F. Tompkins, Reggie Watts, and Tig Notaro. Nothing is happening to our open door policy and the crazy guests it brings along like Truck Bastien, El Chupacabra, Clive Dundee, and the boys of The Enigma Force Five. And if anything, there will be even more improvisation, fun games, and impromptu musical numbers. Be sure to listen to the inaugural episode of Professor Blastoff and cast your vote for the Comedy Bang Bang theme song.
Behind the Music
Sun, 15 May 2011
To all the listeners who have requested Tim Heidecker: We hope you're happy. Tim makes his inaugural appearance to talk about...his music? His show? The music on his show? We're still not sure. Neil Hamburger stops by to set his finances straight and get the word out about his new iPhone app (which has nothing to do with Mountain Dew) before joining the somewhat-agreeable Tim in a game of Dead or Alive. I don't want to tip off the biggest surprise of the episode, but prepare yourself to hear some classic songs of yesteryear in a whole new light. If you'd like to book Tim or one of his multiple musical projects contact P.D.A. out of Little Rock, or just go to his Tumblr.
Mon, 18 Apr 2011
Good Riddance! Just one week since we hit the big 1-0-0 and we're back with another great episode! Joe Lo Truglio (the most tolerable member of The State) joins Casey Wilson for his first Death-Ray appearance, which thankfully goes better than Casey's first show. Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church takes this opportunity to give his God Hates Report, try out some improv (or impr*v if you prefer), and talk about his favorite spring-time beverage. Would you rather end the episode with plugs, or more improv? Well you're in luck either way!
The Big One-Oh-Oh
Mon, 11 Apr 2011
Happy 100th Birthday to Comedy Bang Bang! While there won't be cake and ice cream, there will be hilarious guests, some of your favorite features, and amazing music courtesy of Susanna Hoffs and Matthew Sweet. Tom Lennon and Rob Huebel try to redeem themselves from their first Death-Ray appearances by pitching restaurant ideas, recounting some of their favorite pranks, and playing a game of Who Said It?! To make it a true blast from the past Doug Benson reprises his former feature 8 Words or Less Movie Reviews. Don't forget to visit Knobs.com , submit your entries for the Sunburn Contest, and pick-up a limited edition Hot Saucerman bottle from our store .
Somethin' for Daddy!
Mon, 04 Apr 2011
Would you rather learn about Patton Oswalt's career, or hear what Don Dimelo has been up to since Christmas? That is just one of the many questions posed in this thought-provoking episode of Comedy Bang Bang. We also explore such taboo subjects of sexuality in children's theater and Zach Snyder's odd career choices. Aspiring actors can learn a lot from this veteran director and the emotional role-playing he does with Patton and Scott. And if none of that amuses you, as always Don will bring in the girls.
A Worthy Uhhh
Mon, 28 Mar 2011
Prepare yourself for true comedy gold this week on Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast! We are joined by two of the finest actors of our generation with Independent Spirit Award nominee Adam Scott and Emmy winner Alan Rickman. You can expect music by Heidecker & Wood, the reprise of Guess The Misheard Lyric, and a round of Jukebox Jury, but you cannot possibly guess what will happen when all the fun and games are over.
Can I Catch a Ride?
Mon, 21 Mar 2011
This week on the show we're once again joined by Angry Fella' Jon Hamm. Jon gives us details on his upcoming projects and explores the correlation between religion and obesity. Bob Ducca drops in with important information about addiction which is followed by an exciting round of both “Who Said It?” and “What Am I Thinking?” Will Bob's new found friendship with Mr. Hamm be what he needs to recover from the loss of Dennis? Sit back, open up a bag of Trader Joe's Peanut Butter Pretzels, and find out in this weeks episode of Comedy Bang Bang.

Phishing for Compliments
Mon, 07 Mar 2011
Creak! Slam! Sit down for some Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast! This week's episode has everything you love about the show; the music of Phish and pussy jokes! Natasha Leggero, Harris Wittels, and Harris' protege King Henry VI are our guests, along with Natasha and Harris' new characters Maude and Jack. Death-Ray fans know Jimmy Stewart to be dismissive, but we've unearthed some footage that proves that he's also winning. Be sure to vote in the Harris' Phone Corner Poll at our blog , and come visit us next Sunday in Austin for a LIVE Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast!
Dip Didda Dip Dow!
Mon, 28 Feb 2011
After months upon months of asking, Scott finally receives an answer to the all important question "What's Up Hot Dog?" He also receives the answer to the less important questions "What is Hot Dog's favorite band?" and "How does Hot Dog feel about races other than his own?" Comedian and detective (as we'll all remember from The Opener ) Ben Schwartz helps Scott through this chance encounter by judging singing contests, proctoring depression tests, and performing some impressive role-playing. Jukebox Jury makes its final appearance (we hope), and we take a trip through comedy history with some Slam Slam jokes. Keep leaving your catchphrase suggestions, and check Scott out in Austin and Chicago .
And The Oscar Goes To...
Mon, 21 Feb 2011
And the Oscar for Outstanding Episode of a Comedy Podcast goes to: THIS EPISODE OF Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast! Additionally, the Oscar for Outstanding Former Musician Who is Now a Comedian and Does the Theme Song goes to Reggie Watts! Of course, the Oscar for Outstanding Call-Back to a Previous Episode goes to Jeremy Piven. We just have one more, the Oscar for Outstanding New Feature which will go to Oscar Trivia. No Oscars for Paul Giamatti because he's fat and bald and doesn't bathe.
How's Your Boner?
Sun, 13 Feb 2011
Hey guyz it's Marissa Wompler and Scott was all like "if you want to be an intern you have to write about the show" and I was like "um ok I guess." So, ummm....i kind of dont remember what happened. that guy Andy Richter was there. do you guys know who that is? hes like from Conan or something. umm so yeah, he was there and he talked about boners and stuff. we played this really STUPID game called "Guess the Celebrities' Real Name" but we also played this really really fun game called "What Am I Thinking" and i was really really good at it and it was super fun and I think I'm going to play it at my next sleep-over. if you want to leave me valentines and stuff you can leave them in the comments with catch-phrases and stuff. KBYEZ!
Garry Marshall Presents
Mon, 07 Feb 2011
When you have your own talk show on IFC, you can get some pretty huge guests from the world of entertainment. This week Scott shows off his showbiz credentials with former Monk writer Tom Scharpling, gay marriage advocate Gary Marshall, and future "Best Book" nominee "Weird Al" Yankovic! If you want to know what it was like to write for Your Show of Shows, or how to behave during a Costco book signing, this is a show to which you should pay careful attention. Scott once again rolls out a new feature with "Who Said It?" but in proper tradition follows it up with a rather rousing round of "Would You Rather?" Like "Weird Al" always says: What's Up Hot Dog!
Is This Sexual Harassment?
Sun, 30 Jan 2011
We know that many of you are not ready to forgive Brett Gelman for the way he made a mockery of Comedy Bang Bang in 2010. However, we let him back this week solely to bring along Michael Gladis (aka Professor Kinsalot from Mad Men) and Maria Thayer from the upcoming Adult Swim show Eagleheart. The cast lets us in on the graphic beginnings of Eagleheart and try out our newest feature, Is This News Story True or False?! Scott scores the episode with songs off of Don't Stop or We'll Die's new EP , and Brett helps lead the first-time guests through What am I Thinking?, Would You Rather?, and of course, plugs.
Great Big Hill of Hope
Sun, 23 Jan 2011
Lovers of spoken-word poetry and vokka rejoice! Harris Wittels once again has his dream of an hour-long phone corner dashed by craft-services coordinator and pudding aficionado Fabrice Fabrice. No disrespect, but Bobby Bottleservice comes by and relieves Fabrice of his interrupting-and-mocking duties with important info about upcoming events and his relationship with his mother. Jukebox Jury is back, and somehow overwhelmingly positive. Listen through the very end to hear Engineer Doug's opus based on last week's episode, Steak Shake , available from the Earwolf Store. Keep leaving your catchphrase suggestions, and go vote on the What's Up Hot Dog Poll .

We're droppin' wallets in the Earwolf studio this week! Attractive comedians (and teddy bear enthusiasts ) Chelsea Peretti and Nick Thune join Scott for a feature-filled episode of Comedy Bang Bang. With the premiere of Sports Results, the return of Mike Detective, and classic favorites Jukebox Jury and What Am I Thinking?, we get to learn about Nick's brand loyalty, Chelsea's middle school lunch lady, and, of course, fucking.

The New Year Attack of 2011
Sun, 02 Jan 2011
It's 2011, and you're listening to "Mike Detective" with Rob Huebel! Also, before and after that you are listening to Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast with Scott Aukerman, Patton Oswalt and the aforementioned Mr. Huebel. The gang somberly and respectfully discusses the great phosphorous attack of 2010 before launching into hilarious comedy bits like our newest feature: Alive or Dead. It wouldn't be a Patton Oswalt episode without Star Wars talk, and it would be a shame to have Huebel on without discussing prostate cancer prevention or letting him show off his brilliant foley work. Thanks for listening, and be sure to leave us comments with your catchphrase suggestions and applause videos.

Scott and Adam discuss the pop culture phenomena of U2, Top Chef, and Piranha 3D. Ice T and Jesse Ventura stop by after a long trip from Mexico and tell us how their friendship has evolved since their last appearances on the show. The rest I will leave to you to find out for yourself, but I will warn more squeamish listeners that there is a murder investigation, and for once Richard Belzer isn't there to help out!
Who'd Fuck Tom Brady?
Tue, 09 Nov 2010
Comedy Bang Bang is always trying to do great things for mankind, whether through helping out a poor delinquent child or bringing in amazing comedians for us all to enjoy. This episode does both! Claire Woodruff (who does not have a robot arm) was sentenced to court-ordered podcasting, and boy does she fit the minimum community service requirements! Zing-Talker Eugene Mirman makes his Comedy Bang Bang debut to support his potential sponsors and talk about his upcoming show Bob's Burgers. Scott once again opens up to us about his past, this time about his first date. Scott and Eugene show their competitive side when they place bets on the famous "ball pillow challenge" and follow it up with a rousing game of What Am I Thinking?

Poundin' Puss in Heaven
Sun, 31 Oct 2010
For those who aren't familiar with Doug Benson, he hates candy wrappers, screaming children and sticky seats. However, he does love movies and he joins Scott on Comedy Bang Bang to play the movie game he has made famous on his podcast, The Leonard Maltin Game. Scott has on Pastor Rhe Holner to get down to the theological nitty gritty with deep questions like "What is heaven like?" and "What is your church called?"

Tue, 26 Oct 2010
Listeners beware, you're in for a scare this week on Comedy Bang Bang!First of all, what could be scarier than a CYBER-THUG TAKEOVER!?!!?

Thug and Archer very kindly allow Scott to stay in the studio (mainly to talk about the new Earwolf app) as some ghastly guests come by. The Ghost Boy who has been haunting the Earwolf studio finally reveals himself, and brings in some much needed levity with his happy songs and silly jokes. Messmore and Bueford LeBaron, innkeepers of Suicide House, join the show mainly to talk about their dicks and ghoul-themed daytime television. In an effort to regain the journalistic integrity of the show, Scott has on Leo Karpatze to sing for us the first draft of Monster Mash, which the guests use as an excuse to start a cypher.

Head on over to the Earwolf Store to buy your "Coolest Person on the Planet" Halloween costume and don't forget to check out the Earwolf App!
Don't Cry Rolling Skate Train
Tue, 19 Oct 2010
After all the goofing around of the previous hour, the guys get some business done the second half of the show.

The Farting Fuck Faces
Tue, 12 Oct 2010
This week's theme on Comedy Bang Bang is well-adjusted adults who take criticism well and never had issues being accepted as adolescents. Sleepwalker Mike Birbiglia shares with us, in Mike Birbiglia-style detail, how he and Nathan Lane became friends, what it's like to do comedy at a college, and how close he was to becoming a world class break dancer.

Punk-Billionaire-Genius Mark Zuckerberg shares some data with Scott regarding their shared love of The Beatles, The Big Lebowski, and Asian women. Pop culture aficionados will enjoy a rare trailer for the film Nowhere Boy, which is one short game of Fortunately Unfortunately away from a fantastic round of plugs.

Wed, 06 Oct 2010
Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast FINALLY gets the guest you have all been waiting for: Rocky Aukerman! Scott's adorable Boston Terrier will keep you company through this week's episode. He's there while Jason Mantzoukas tells us about his role on this season of The League. He hangs around silently while Bill Carter of Trainer for the Stars, Seeking Stars.org tells us about training his celebrity clientele (spoiler: It's all about getting your heart rate up!), using black magic, and what it was like for him growing up without cell phones and Tivo. It isn't hard to imagine Rocky curling up in your lap to hear the traditional Irish storytelling of Patrick McMahon, and then getting up and leaving when Patrick starts composing his own impromptu limericks. If you listen closely, you can very faintly hear Rocky telling you all to check out the Earwolf store for awesome podcast merchandise.
Featuring Betty White!
Wed, 29 Sep 2010
What do Nick Swardson and Bill Cosby-Bukowski have in common? They are not only both guests on this episode, but they both have a sexual history with Betty White! Fortunately they take time away from doing inappropriate things with Ms. White to play a rather unconventional game of Would You Rather, judge a surprisingly positive round of Jukebox Jury, and answer the very first Ungame Question of the Week. The show gets a little personal when Mr. Cosby-Bukowski shares some of his Jelloems and Nick Swardson introduces us to his brother Gary. Don't miss the upcoming Nick Swardson's Pretend Time on Comedy Central, and while you're here you might as well check out the Earwolf Store. This has been Bruce Vilanch: Thank you.
History in the Making
Wed, 22 Sep 2010
Have you been waiting to hear Huell Howser explain Inception? Had you not even thought about how great that would be and are now super excited to listen to this episode? Well, don't "pull a plugs" and fast-forward straight to that, because you'll miss appearances by Janeane Garafalo and Andy Dick. Andy gives us some saucy Hollywood stories, while Scott gives Janeane some advice for her upcoming show Criminal Minds Miami. Paul Giamatti very graciously comes by and humbly discusses his career, and Huell Howser ponders whether or not wolves can hear. Super fans will enjoy this rare glimpse into who Scott was in the 90's when he first met Janeane.
Comedy Death Scott
Wed, 15 Sep 2010
What a busy episode! Scott is joined by the ENTIRE cast of FX's "The League." That's right, both Paul Scheer AND Nick Kroll! Before Nick gets to the studio, El Chupacabra joins a particularly wheezy Scott to talk about his father, show off his impressive foley work, and take a call from a New York City firefighter. The last portion of the show involves actor J. Montgomery Scott and his illegitimate Hispanic child, Paul Scheer's mumblecore film based on Family Circus, Nick Kroll's pun-blecore film Long Story Short, Howard Stern's penis, several barn-yard animals, and more indescribable hilarity. Listen to this episode, buy The League on DVD, watch the second season premiere, and then kill yourself.
Rock 'n Roll Dreams
Wed, 08 Sep 2010
They say all musicians secretly want to be comedians, but today's guests do not seem to keep any secret of their comedic leanings. Aimee Mann, Ted Leo, and Jon Wurster all have serious comedy cred, between touring with Paul F. Tompkins, making music videos with Paul F. Tompkins, and performing on radio shows with Paul F. Tompkins. Speaking of Paul F. Tompkins, artist Mr. Brainwash makes his first appearance to discuss making art (and science) for the people. Listen to musicians doing what they do best (critiquing music), and what they do worst (short-form improv), and french artists doing what they do best (pronouncing the word "mustard") and what they do worst (pronouncing the word "mustard").
I Am Not Food
Wed, 01 Sep 2010
LIL' GARY IS BACK! If I may say so myself, this is the closest he's ever gotten to pronouncing a word correctly. Loch and Key serve as the house band for this episode, which brings back Kumail Nanjiani for his second appearance. Lil' Gary talks about raising awareness for burn wards, Kumail talks about his wedding, Loch and Key talk about the genre classification of their music, Scott gives an Entourage re-cap, and What Am I Thinking? makes an appearance for the first time in a while. Enjoy!
Live from LA it's Comedy Bang Bang!
Thu, 26 Aug 2010
Sometimes Comedy Bang Bang gets serious, and today is the case when Scott finally breaks down the all-important question on everyone's mind: What is Fred Armisen's ethnic makeup? Buuut seriously folks, Scott and Fred discuss the aspects of Saturday Night Live (or Sanightli as most people know it) that nerds out there want to know, from what it's like to be a newcomer to just how Bill Hader perfects those impressions. After a quick music break by Trainwreck, Howard Kremer teaches us how to have a summah and Fred Armisen announces his and Carrie Brownstein's upcoming program Portlandia. Would You Rather, Plugs, music, comedy, and other things, what more could you want???
What Happens In Vegas
Thu, 19 Aug 2010
Rob Corddry and Lake Bell take a break from rehearsing the movie What Happens In Las Vegas, Nevada STAYS in Las Vegas, Nevada (which I believe is some sort of Japanese shadow puppet theatre) to talk to Scott about their Adult Swim series Children's Hospital. Fan Favorite Buddy "Cake Boss" Valastro makes his second appearance and talks about building a cake to take into the afterlife. After a bit of other-world communication, the gang launches into a game of Would You Rather and a great round of plugs with a great plugs theme song (but please don't fast-forward straight to it).
Cool Whip Play Challenge
Mon, 16 Aug 2010
And now, the exciting conclusion of EPISODE 66! Scott, Brett, and Bob try working out their differences and trying to heal the past with a performance of a touching recreation of past events. I won't spoil how it ends, but I will tell you that they have time for a round of Would You Rather and the plugs you have been waiting patiently for since last week.
Where Do Babies Come From?
Thu, 12 Aug 2010
Well, I guess it was time that someone had “the talk” with Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast. It seems appropriate that it would be comedy legend Bob Odenkirk. Bob and Scott talk about the birds and the bees and the history of TV's and myths and legends regarding the band U2 and all the other questions a pre-pubescent comedy podcast might have. Comedy legend Bob Odenkirk talks a bit about his show Breaking Bad Kids on Naughty Nick and Scott helps comedy legend Bob Odenkirk out with his upcoming concept album “Motown Bus Through Middle Eearth”. When an unexpected and unwelcome guest shows up, Scott really has to learn the meaning of “host”, with a helpful acronym from comedy legend Bob Odenkirk. This cliffhanger episode truly will leave you hanging…on a cliff.
Welcome to Earwolf!
Thu, 05 Aug 2010
This week Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast switched studios and I know what you guys are thinking: 1) Will we still get topical material about the world today, and 2) Will our favorite guests still find a way into the studio? Well, you'll be excited to hear Scott and the Sklar's discuss Fantastic Four, the band Boston, the movie Outbreak, and other top topics you've been dying to hear a comedic take on. Plus, Scott's ex-step father Bob Ducca finds the studio and let's us in on one of the fascinating parts of his past, as well as the problems he's having with his neck and his morning journals about his family. And don't worry about being a sports fan, any and all can enjoy The SklarBro Country podcast, assuming you are an orphan.
Harrison Ford Approved
Fri, 30 Jul 2010
Well, we got a couple a ladies on the show today. They talk about their boyfriends, and hanging out, and showing each other their buttholes, and their hit TV shows, and what Harrison Ford thinks of their work, and other stuff that girls blabber on and on about. Repeat guest Merrill Shindler comes in to talk about the food he enjoys in LA and to tell us a bit about what you can expect when going to his house. All of this plus a big announcement regarding Earwolf (whatever that is)!
Harry's World: Mad Men
Fri, 23 Jul 2010
Matt (pronounced "wee-ner") Weiner likes to keep all the secrets of Mad Men close to the vest...so let's all not tell him about this episode, okay? I mean, can you imagine how angry he'd be if he knew we knew about *CENSORED* and *CENSORED* and don't you DARE tell him that Jon Hamm and Rich Sommer mentioned *CENSORED*. Fortunately, before they could spill TOO many secrets, Jerald "T-Bones" Tibbons comes in to talk about some controversial issues like teabagging and Green Acres. Don't miss this glimpse into Don Draper's private life and feelings about artificial sugar.
Serious or Sarcastic?
Fri, 16 Jul 2010
What a great episode! Now tell me, am I being serious, or sarcastic? The boys from Don't Stop or We'll Die stop by for some crazy mad jams, and Andy Richter makes his first appearance since that whole….kerfuffle he was involved with. Plus, Scott gets a lesson from a legendary podcaster, the host of Humor Laser Beam Radio, Bennett Stephens.
Fri, 09 Jul 2010
Did you know that Jimmy Pardo voted for Sarah Palin? Well, just make sure you don't tell Sarah, it would crush her! Also, did you know that someone is capable of being offended by the super funny Rory Scovel? Well, you can hear just how he did it this week on Comedy Bang Bang.
Now Hiring Interns!
Sat, 03 Jul 2010
Dreams DO come true, nerds, and even the notorious grump Scott Aukerman has a heart sometimes. Why else would he let clearly obnoxious, secretly horny tween Marissa Wompler try her hand at being an intern. Unfortunately, sometimes your dreams will also get crushed, like when you hope and pray that Brendon Walsh will stop doing his Flavio character. Donald Glover just might be the only 100% charming part of this episode, but he's definitely not the only funny part.
Free Subarus for Moms!
Fri, 25 Jun 2010
Important Message: We here at Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast are giving Todd Glass' mother a new car! For free! As long as her credit is good! And it's only for lease! And…we cannot guarantee she'll get the car! Also, on an unrelated topic, if anyone see's a German pretzel maker near the Hollywood sign, tell him that there is something to live for and that hell isn't nearly as great as it seems. Oh, and Paul F. Tompkins!
I Want It That Way
Sat, 19 Jun 2010
You've heard Steel Panther on Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast before, but isn't it always better to get heavy metal PLUS conversation from the people making it? And if you're going to have someone proctor a conversation with such eloquent and articulate people as heavy metal musicians, it should be someone who can shred a little himself. Someone like, say, Rob Huebel? Done!
A Buttery, Juicy Episode
Fri, 11 Jun 2010
Two first time guests join us on this episode of Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast. The co-host is none other than Mr. Show alumni Brian Posehn. The other, noted food critic Merrill Shindler, sits down to talk about some of his favorite places to eat around Los Angeles. Both of these guys are such long-time friends of Scott's that they are actually able to go back in time to one of the darker days of Scott's life.
Is Dave Foley Here?
Fri, 04 Jun 2010
While Scott always gets interesting guests on the show, Comedy Bang Bang gets its first television mega-star in the Cake Boss himself, Buddy Valastro. He, along with David Higgins, wait patiently for Dave Foley to show up (spoiler alert: he doesn't) by talking about David's career, how Buddy got into cakes, and playing the first ever game of Fortunately, Unfortunately.
Go Rent Delgo!
Fri, 28 May 2010
I know, I know, you guys are tired of these drop-in's from Scott's ex-step-father, but for whatever reason Bob Ducca won't stay away. But please don't ignore the episode just because of that! Jason Mantzoukas talks about working with Scott on the 2009 MTV Movie Awards, and Natasha Leggero gives her opinion about how women can get what they want. Plus, there's jizz talk!
The Wacky Ding Dongs
Fri, 21 May 2010
Hey, so Marc Maron is super good at podcasting, right? Let's have him on Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast to talk about his ex-wife and his depression and caffeine and nicotine addictions and all of those other things he talks about so hilariously. Plus, Adam McKay's favorite sketch group “The Birthday Boys” makes a big impression on the Comedy Bang Bang audience. Listen to just what happened that created such a reaction.
A Cover of a Parody
Fri, 14 May 2010
“Weird Al” Yankovic's first appearance on the show was mostly informative. His next visit, mostly humorous. So when Al makes his third appearance, he combines the two and becomes perhaps the most beloved Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast guest. Hear how his career has differed from that of the super-filthy and super-sexy group “Garfunkel & Oates” who may or may not know about oral sex (according to Riki's mom). Plus, maybe the greatest plugs, and unexpected bathroom break, in Comedy Bang Bang history!
Introducing: The Japan Dogs
Fri, 07 May 2010
Sarah Silverman, Ben Schwartz, and Harris Wittels have worked together on numerous projects, which is perhaps why the three of them have so much fun and such great chemistry on this episode of Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast. Whether they are revealing deep dark secrets about each other's sexual history, or starting a barbershop quartet, there are non-stop laughs. Don't miss stories out of Sarah's book "The Bedwetter", information about Ben Schwartz's upcoming television shows, and see what Harris has been saving up since the last time he shared the jokes from his phone.
The Party's Still Raging
Fri, 30 Apr 2010
The year-end celebration continues with original UCB member Rich Fulcher. Bob Ducca stops by to let us know about some of the reasons he hasn't stopped by lately, and Bobby Bottleservice and El Chupacabra join the fiesta! Plus, don't miss Jerry Minor doing weird, indescribable, but hilarious things.
One Year Anniversary Party
Fri, 30 Apr 2010
Scott starts his year-end celebration off with a bang. And by a bang, I mean a story about the meeting (or should I say meetings) of the great Tig Notaro and the even greater Taylor Dayne. Some of our friends (or should I say Paul F. Tompkins' friends) call in from the Goodyear blimp (or should I say I say the good-one blimp). You'll never believe what Jesse Ventura and Huell Howser are up to!
A Thrilling Hour or So
Fri, 23 Apr 2010
Comedy Bang Bang was a huge event in Los Angeles for years before it became a podcast. Well, this week Scott granted a nation-wide audience to another L.A. comedy hit, The Thrilling Adventure Hour. Enjoy an appearance from Colonel Tick-Tock, and a visit from his modern “urban” counterpart Michael Crappaport. Guest host Paul Gilmartin does a great job of keepin' up the funny and making everyone wish Dinner and a Movie was less of the movie, more of the hosts.
Fri, 16 Apr 2010
Adam Scott is a phenomenal comedic actor who proves in this episode that he's hilarious in any medium. He somehow manages to be funny even with the tragedy that is relationship experts James and Cathy McDowell and their neglected son Damian Vast. After they've sufficiently bummed everyone out with their upsetting views on parenting, Chris Fairbanks comes in to close us out with some of the trademark (admin note: don't quote me on that) wit and quickness that makes him such a great stand-up comic.
In the Thicke of the Night
Fri, 09 Apr 2010
The Sklars are here! The Sklar Brothers make their second appearance on the show, and do the whole twin-thing. Not to disrespect the Sklars in any fashion, but they are classless jerks compared to our other guest, J. Montgomery Scott. I know what you're thinking: “How in the world did Comedy Bang Bang get world renowned actor and voice over artist J. Montgomery Scott?” Well, all that matters is that he's here, and he and The Sklars get to enjoy the premiere of Weirder Scott's new song Halo.
Fri, 02 Apr 2010
This episode is PURE class! The super classy Greg Proops talks a bit about his participation in the greatest film of all time. Then the captain of class, jazz musician Barry R. brings up the class level. They class about for a while until a very classy Would You Rather and classy Plugs.
Curb Your Suicide Attempts
Fri, 26 Mar 2010
Isn't it great in life when you get unexpected surprises? Like the surprise of a 2-hour episode, or the surprise of Hasty Pudding Theatrical's Man of the Year Ben Stiller? How about of Jeff Garlin from TV's Shorty McShorts Shorts? What would you say if rapper-turned-actor Ice T showed up? And how sweet would it be if Scott let an older gentleman whose dying wish is to do stand-up on the show? All of these things happen.
Cyberthug Take Over Pt Three
Fri, 19 Mar 2010
Be warned, it's another CYBER-THUG TAKE OVER! This episode features quite the motely crew of guests, starting with David Sitek from TV on the Radio. The Thuggy one brings into the studio Mr. Jesse “The Mind” Ventura who blows everyone away with some of the truth he's uncovered. Craig Robinson makes a quick appearance to be hilarious and wonderful, and Tik Tok is on Cyber's right hand side the entire episode.
We Got a Caller on the Line
Fri, 12 Mar 2010
This episode is a global episode if ever there was one. Repping for the U.S. of A. is Jason Woliner of Human Giant, and honestly, who else would you WANT representing this country? To represent our neighbors down south is El Chupacabra who helps Scott quite a bit regarding how to be a great radio host. And from across the pond as “they” say, Dame Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber shows up and gives some hints of what to expect from his upcoming work. Don't miss the first semi-regular appearance of Jukebox Jury!
Fri, 05 Mar 2010
THE GOOD ONE ROBOT IS HERE! Everyone had been requesting it, and here it is! The Good-One robot! This almost makes up for the awkward addition of Julie Penzmere, Scott's ex-girlfriend (if you can call her that, I mean, they only dated once!). Tig Notaro quickly sets herself apart as a fan favorite with her phenomenal Foley work, and Rory Scovel gives us his Oscar predictions. If you were wanting more music from Cracked Out, this is the episode to check out since it is literally the only option Scott had.
Winter Olympic Fever: Deux!
Fri, 26 Feb 2010
Comedy Bang Bang has caught winter-olympic fever, and has on some of the members of the world famous Georgian Olympic Figure Skating Team as well as the coach, who teach us what it means to be a famous figure skater in this world. Nick Thune is the co-host for the hour and treats us with a song off of his album Thick Noon. Plus once James Pumphrey shows up we get to hear some of the brilliant improvisation that makes the UCB and those who perform there so renowned.
Winter Olympic Fever
Fri, 19 Feb 2010
The winter Olympics are here, and I know what you all are thinking: “What does Academy Award nominated singer/songwriter Aimee Mann think of the winter Olympics?” Well don't you worry your pretty little head, because you get 15 solid minutes of Olympic talk before Kumail Nanjiani joins the group. After a quick and hilarious retelling of his interactions with John Mayer, poet Maya Angelou reads us some of the beautiful work she's written regarding the winter Olympics. Good Morning.
Happy Valentines Day
Fri, 12 Feb 2010
Harris Wittels comes to save face after his last appearance, and gets some great tips from comedy legend Doug Benson regarding the jokes he stores in his phone. Notorious grump Christopher Hitchens shows up to let us know why Valentine's Day, the concept of love, and everything in between are corrupt and terrible. By Valentine's Day, I mean the holiday not the movie. But the movie is also terrible, as Gary Marshall admits in a call he makes into the show.
The Premiere of Bob Ducca
Fri, 05 Feb 2010
When Bob Ducca shows up to Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast, it can be hard to keep up the pace. Fortunately, Miss Riki “Garfunkel” Lindhome and Miss Kate “Oates” Micucci do just that. And who would have thought, Brendon Walsh and Bob have quite a bit in common! You won't want to miss the bonding that occurs between those two.
Live from UCB NY!
Tue, 02 Feb 2010
When Scott goes to New York to do a show, he gets the absolute best New York comedians out there. Scott and guest-host Todd Barry do some improvisation before they bring out their first guest, comedy nerd demi-god David Cross. Once he's done, Zach Galifianakis comes out and entertains us all with some pre-fame talk. This OBNOXIOUSLY whiney baby takes the stage before Ted Leo (the musician Ted Leo? But he's not a comedian!) finishes us up.
Paul F. Tompkins Steps In
Fri, 29 Jan 2010
While it is impossible to replace Scott Aukerman, Paul F. Tompkins does a better job than any. On this episode he does the whole Paul-F-Tompkins-thing until his grandma's get there to teach us a little bit about Paul's upbringing. Paul also brings on his friend from the highly underrated (in this nerds opinion) show It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Kaitlin Olson, who teaches us a bit about working with a depressed alcoholic version of the Gentleman Tompkins.
Exclusive Prince Interview
Fri, 22 Jan 2010
Todd Glass might be the most seriously funny person. And by that I mean even when he's talking about his dog dying or asking for Twitter advice, it's hilarious. Hannibal Buress drops some bon mots, and Sarah Silverman is fortunate enough to be in studio for the SECOND Comedy Bang Bang Celebrity Interview, this time with Prince.
Live from SF Sketchfest!
Mon, 18 Jan 2010
In the first Doug Loves Movies/Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast cross-over event, Scott brings on his friends Doug Benson, Dana Gould, Paul F. Tompkins, Michael Ian Black, and of course the theme-song composer Reggie Watts. The show gets its first ever appearance of a Tony Award winner in Dame Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, and experiences what it's like to do the same type of show they do in a studio in front of real live people.
Another Cyberthug Take-Over
Fri, 15 Jan 2010
Run for your life, it's a CYBER-THUG TAKE OVER! Cyber and his buddy Miles Archer discuss the state of hip hop with Kanye East, and whatever type of music it is that Taylor Slow does.
And a Happy New Year!
Fri, 08 Jan 2010
I made some New Year's resolutions this year: 1. Catch up with my old friend, Lil' Gary, and see how his health is.2. Do some reading, maybe Sci-Fi or Romance?3. Listen to Patton Oswalt speak. I was glad Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast was there to help me stay true! Don't miss the much-talked-about short story by Brett Gelman, iBrain, and hear two of the smartest comedic minds (that would be Patton Oswalt and Lil' Gary) wax philosophic.
The Best of 2009
Sun, 27 Dec 2009
Scott asked us all to vote, and we did. Only, not for him. Listen in on what fans decided were the most memorable moments of 2009 on Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast. Because nobody wants to be alone during the holidays, Scott brought in his good friends Huell Howser, Ice T, and Bobby Bottleservice to help him count 'em down.If you are new to Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast, this is a great place to start!
Have a Merry Christmas...
Fri, 18 Dec 2009
If Santa asked ME what I wanted for Christmas, I'm sure Jon Hamm, Nick Kroll, James Adomian, and Paul F. Tompkins would be involved. Well, Scott answers this nerd's Christmas dreams with a commercial for Masculinidad, a peek into Jesse “The Mind” Ventura's new show, and an acting-off between John C. Reilly and Jon Hamm. Of course, a special episode wouldn't be complete without a super-special guest, Weirdest Kulap Vilaysack!
Welcome to Jamrock
Fri, 11 Dec 2009
Welcome to Jamrock, I mean Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast! Scott counts down the best songs of the year, and of the Christmas season, with his friends Paul F. Tompkins and Kyle Kinane. They wind down the year discussing their favorite Christmas customs, incense smells, door-to-door fliers, pizzas, and everything else the Holiday season brings. Don't miss possibly the most famous guest, Ray Romano, when he stops by with some Holiday cheer!
Fri, 04 Dec 2009
Brendon Small is the genius behind the band Dethklok (who you might know better as Metalocalypse, but he would prefer that you didn't). Aziz Ansari is the genius behind Raaaaaaaandy from Judd Apatow's movie “Funny People.” Stan Lee is the genius behind Spiderman. And while Captain Moustache isn't necessarily a genius, he does offer some funny stand-up!
Happy Black Friday!
Fri, 27 Nov 2009
The day after Thanksgiving, most people are too hung-over and full to do anything hilarious. This is not true for Michael Cera, James Adomian, Jimmy Pardo, Nick Kroll, and Paul F. Tompkins. Also, Harris is there. Learn about the history of Thanksgiving from the always insightful Huel Howser, hear what the hip Jersey kids are doing this Thanksgiving via Bobby Bottleservice, and experience the brainstorming of two great minds as Scott Aukerman and Ice T do some business planning.
Yerr An Egghead!
Fri, 20 Nov 2009
You can't get three guests better than Matt Walsh, Dave Holmes, and Howard Kremer. Unfortunately, for much of the time at least one of them is missing. Radio Disney sends over one of their most famous DJ's, Lil' Timmy, who brings up some tremendously upsetting information. Dave Holmes presents us with one of the most carefully thought-out and well crafted characters since the history of characters, and Matt Walsh lets us in on what aliens want to know about our world.
Introducing Huell Howser
Fri, 13 Nov 2009
Fan favorite (well, at least this fan's favorite) Ben Schwartz makes his first appearance, and we're lucky he and Chip Pope were there. You see, public television host Huell Howser came in James Adomian's stead and boy did he have a lot of questions! Chip and Ben kept him informed, but confusion ensued when Chip left to get his friend R.O. Manse. Don't miss the premiere of Do They Know It's Christmas!
Did Somebody Sit on a Duck?
Fri, 06 Nov 2009
Theme-episodes aren't Comedy Bang Bang's forte, so why Scott wanted to have a Philly episode we'll never understand. I mean, Paul F. Tompkins and Todd Glass I get, but (the great Dr.) Bill Cosby? And he's become such a shill! Well, listen anyways, for Paul and Todd at least.
A Cyberthug Take-Over!
Fri, 30 Oct 2009
CYBER-THUG TAKEOVER! The Thuggy one brings in his very best and thuggiest friend Miles Archer who helps cohost this unspeakably terrible overtaking of the show we love so much. Don't be too worried, as show favorite Bobby Bottleservice shows up with Jerry O'Connell from Carpoolers (Jerry Minor was in that….whatever happened to that guy?). You've been warned!
What Do You Say to Your Dog?
Fri, 23 Oct 2009
What do you say to your dog that you wish someone would say to you? I bet it isn't as funny as Andy Richter's answer! How would you serenade a porn star? I bet it isn't as melodious as Sarah Silverman's song! What would you ask Elvis Costello if you could ask him anything? I bet it isn't as hard-hitting as Scott Aukerman's questions!
We're Down for Whatewers
Fri, 16 Oct 2009
Comedy has always been a young man's game, which is perhaps why Neil Hamburger cannot get an audience to do anything but boo and hiss until his set ends. You'd think they'd enjoy his stuff, as so much of it is about Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears and the other people who keep this culture running. Maybe it's because of his opening act, Mike O'Connell. I mean, he's the type of guy who you keep your babies far away from, especially if they are Asian. Fortunately the somewhat likeable political analyst Anthony Rivera drops in who is “down for like whatewers.”
No Such Thing as Shirter!
Fri, 09 Oct 2009
This episode features some of the best acting known to man. Nick Swardson from Comedy Central's Reno 911 guest hosts, and Academy Award winner Gary Busey steps in for a chat (while James Adomian steps out). Don't miss a peek into the actor's process as Matt Walsh prepares for some of his upcoming projects, and if you pay close attention you'll hear Paul F. Tompkins!
Guest Host Paul F. Tompkins
Fri, 02 Oct 2009
Many nerds dream about the meeting of Paul F. Tompkins and “Weird Al” Yankovic. Well, now you can know just exactly how it happened! Spoiler alert: It's hilarious! And I know we all heard about the mysterious pink-lining of Tig Notaro in Vancouver, so be sure to get the truth behind the rumors!
Live from Vancouver!
Fri, 25 Sep 2009
When Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast goes in front of a live audience, you never know what to expect! Like an audience not really understanding just what it is that Todd Barry is doing. Or that Ice T might look nothing like he does when he's acting on TV's Law and Order. But you can always count on Would You Rather, Garfunkel & Oates, Nick Thune, and the most famous and beloved segment: The Patented Chime-Off.
Yet Another Pardo-sode
Fri, 25 Sep 2009
And here we are, yet another appearance of Jimmy Pardo. You'd think he'd grow tired of the live radio scene, but when he's got great guests like shock jock Kirk rocker and Paul Stanley from KISS to help him out how can you complain? Add universally loved comedian Dana Gould and the founder of ASpecialThing.com Matt Belknap and you have a fabulous episode for your ears to feast upon.
Morning Becomes Oddly Racist
Fri, 18 Sep 2009
I know a lot of you have been complaining about the fast paced comedic nature of the show, so we thought we'd bring in Nathan Brantley from Morning Becomes Eclectic to slow the pace down a bit. It's kind of hard to do that when you've got the comedic genius of Chris Hardwick and Charlene Yi at work. They try the first (and as of typing, last) ever game of What Is It Wearing and Charlene shows off some of her talent for impressions and music.
World Premiere of Tangelo
Fri, 11 Sep 2009
Of course we all miss Mr. Show, but fortunately Scott recreates the magic by having on Mary Lynn Rajskub. She updates us on what has happened in her life since 1996, and that one show she's on. It's a number or something….ugh, do you guys know what I'm talking about? Ugh, well…Reggie Watts makes his first appearance which is one of the greatest things that has happened in the world. The only thing that could make the episode better: Rory Scovel! Oh, and one other thing, Scott Aukerman's new hit single Tangelo! And one more thing…oh wait, that's it. Scratch that.
Fri, 04 Sep 2009
Rarely does the show go super-informative-like, but this episode is a great look into the life of the “Not Ready for Prime Time Players” that make up Saturday Night Live. From the classic Laraine Newman, to the modern Casey Wilson, and the fan-favorite Kevin Nealon learn about the evolution of America's most famous sketch show.
Fri, 28 Aug 2009
It's always great when Scott brings on his friends from Mr. Show, but it's hard not to be disappointed by the fact that Jerry Minor has given up comedy in place of music. Granted, he's an amazing musician, as you'll hear, but it's still disappointing. Fortunately the fabulous Andy Kindler is there to keep the funny flowing. Brendon Walsh makes his first appearance and talks about his comedy beginnings, as well as his comedy currents.
Live from Downtown Franklin
Fri, 21 Aug 2009
Unfortunately, Tom Lennon had a hard time getting to the show on time. Fortunately, the new announcer Lil' Gary was there to keep the pace up. In between Gary's shouts of confusion, you'll hear some hi-larious jokes by Matt Braunger and hear about Matt Walsh's new business plans.
Bob Odenkirk's Death Bed
Fri, 14 Aug 2009
Andy Dick and Bob Odenkirk were two of the cast members of the fabulously fabulous Ben Stiller Show, and they're on this episode! They bring in new L.A. resident Chelsea Peretti in for some great improvisation and sketch work, like a Cheaters remake and Bob's last words on his death bed. Several moments from this episode made the “Best of '09” episode, so you won't want to miss out!
Four Douche Episode
Fri, 07 Aug 2009
This episode is all about fame! Famous twitterer Steve Agee talks a bit about his trending topic #2DoucheConvo, Natasha Leggero does the best “ladies comedy” you could ever hear, and Matt Besser tries to figure out just what it would take to get him a trophy, or medallion, or certificate, or maybe just a belt.
An Old Fashioned Dinner
Fri, 31 Jul 2009
Sometimes really talented comedians get some fame. And by sometimes, I mean in the case of Zach Galifianakis and Andy Samberg. Hear a little bit about each of their rises to fame, but certainly do not miss learning about Life of the Party Inc, and the future famous Los Angeles-based comedian, Shooter.
Jimmy Pardo's Back
Fri, 24 Jul 2009
Pardo is back! While most fans loved his last appearance, a certain country disc jockey named A.J. Christopher had some issues with it and came on to give Jimmy advice. But it isn't all hate for Pardo, The Shaman performs an original Ode to Jimmy Pardo live from the studio! Jimmy Dore is there to bring the funny, especially when Ice T tries SO hard to take the funny away. All this and Doug Loves Movies on this episode of Comedy Bang Bang!
The Baby's Sunglasses
Fri, 17 Jul 2009
It only took Scott twelve, count 'em, TWELVE episodes to get an Emmy nominee on the show! And that nominee is the fine sir Jon Hamm. He talks about being famous, blah blah blah, and assists El Chupacabra by helping him advertise pajamas. Howard Kremer talks about his love of music, and his love of the town of Austin, TX, while Bobby Bottleservice talks about his love of alcohol and women. Plus, Doug Loves Movies!
Fri, 10 Jul 2009
Two words: Birthday Checks! That's right, it's the premiere of Weirder Scott's first ever single! But before you fast forward over to that, be sure to listen to Officer Dick Butterfield who has some great safety tips for the summertime. With all of that you'd hardly think there would be time for more features, but you'd be wrong! Doug Loves Movies, Half-Assed Sports Report, Twitter Questions and more, on this episode of Comedy Bang Bang.
Comedy Vs. Music
Fri, 03 Jul 2009
They say every musician wants to be a comedian and every comedian wants to be a musician. I happen to think Aimee Mann just enjoys being friends with comedians, but you can't help but pick up on how funny she is. She and Morgan Murphy bring up the estrogen level of the show as Morgan discusses dirty texts and bad dates. And while the show tries to stay away from advertising, Todd Wickey comes in to talk about the bakery for dogs he runs.
R.I.P. Michael Jackson
Fri, 26 Jun 2009
While the death of Michael Jackson put a damper on the comedy community, Scott Aukerman bravely decided to do his show anyways, if nothing else than to put a smiling face on all the grievers and mourners out there. I'm pretty sure he wasn't expecting a visit from the ghost of Michael Jackson himself. To round out the table (if that's an expression) Scott has topical comedy genius Neil Hamburger and friend of Michael Jackson's, R.O. Manse join in to voice their condolences. Dax Shepard co-hosts this beautiful tribute to a lost legend.
The New Doctor Demento
Fri, 19 Jun 2009
Dr. Demento was arguably the most famous comedy radio host…that is, until Scott Aukerman joined the business! The key to Demento's success was one Mr. “Weird Al” Yankovic, who Scott steals away to bring himself fame. On this episode they discuss Al's success and music and are joined by celebrated author Richard Dalton and winner of the Indie 103.1 Unknown Comic Contest Jim Pipe.
Fri, 05 Jun 2009
An episode with two co-hosts? It cannot be! Well, it is…but, when they're The Sklar Brothers you can hardly call them two separate entities. With the comedic force of Scott, Jason and Randy, and Paul F. Tompkins, you'd think unfunny was impossible…that is unless you're newly traumatized observational comic Cal Shipsby. Fortunately things take a lighter turn when the writer of Look Who's Talking, Jerry Jimson, stops by and talks about his process. And I'd be remiss not to mention that this episode features Doug Loves Movies!
Doing Laundry with Sarah
Fri, 05 Jun 2009
You'd expect a show like Comedy Bang Bang to be able to get at least one popular movie star each episode, but TWO? That's unheard of! Until now that is, with Billy Crystal and James Gandolfini both showing up on this episode. While both of those dudes are pretty unfunny, Sarah Silverman and Howard Kremer keep the funny alive with great banter and some live songs from Dragon Boy Suede. The beloved Doug Loves Movies feature shows up on this episode as well, so there is really no reason not to catch it!
Guest Host Jimmy Pardo
Fri, 29 May 2009
Jimmy Pardo is the host of his own show, Never Not Funny, so one would assume that he'd be a good host of Comedy Bang Bang. Well, one would be right! Except for the boring politicians he had on, the show is absolutely phenomenal. Representative Richard Martin and his wife Jazz slow the pace down a bit, but Paul Stanley from KISS brings his rocking attitude in to bring the energy back. All of this plus music from Garfunkel & Oates, a Half-Assed Sports Report, and Doug Loves Movies.
Special Nerdist Edition
Fri, 22 May 2009
Four episodes in and Scott is ALREADY chickening out? Geesh! Well, fortunately the Nerdist Chris Hardwick steps in and does a flat-out awesome job taking over the hosting reigns. With Mike Phirman and Matt Mira on his side, they are unstoppable, and it doesn't hurt that they've got Doug Loves Movies if all else fails!
Never Date a "Brown"
Fri, 15 May 2009
One of the best parts of Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast is the way it introduces tremendously funny people to a wider audience. How many of you knew who Jackie Clarke was before this episode? Oh yeah, I forgot most of you are nerds. Well, did you have ANY idea that the author Greg Behrendt is also a comedian? Oh right, he's an amazing legendary comedian we've all known and loved for years. Well, how about the fact…aww, nevermind this game is no fun. Of course you all know that Nick Thune is tremendously hilarious! Just go on and listen!
Fri, 08 May 2009
It doesn't take a show like Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast long to get some grade-A guests. Guests like SNL's Kevin Nealon? Yes, guests like SNL's Kevin Nealon! And before Aziz Ansari became a huge hit with Raaaaaaaandy, he was a huge hit with his Reggaeton Soundboard. All of this plus more of Doug Loves Movies and songs from The Lonely Island, The Reigning Monarchs, and Hard 'n Phirm make this episode a great one to grow from.
Welcome to Comedy Bang Bang
Fri, 01 May 2009
Welcome to Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast! As is to be expected, the first few episodes are where the show finds its footings, and that it does! Rob Huebel from TV's “Human Giant”, Tom Lennon from TV's “The State”, and Doug Benson from TV's “Last Comic Standing” make Scott's first episode an immediate hit. Hear some music from today's hottest comedy musicians, have your twitter questions answered, and hear an abbreviated version of Doug Loves Movies on this episode.
