Have you ever endured an aggressive tickling before? Andy Daly, Stephanie Allynne, and Chris Kula are here to improvise some scenes inspired by a listener’s cupcake eating competition incident, Stuff You Missed In History Class, and Oscar Pistorius. It’s enough to make you feel even better baby! Be sure to pick up an improv4humans shirt from the Earwolf Store and follow @MattBesser on Twitter to send in your improv suggestions. Music by Bobby Matthews and Dragoon. You can also now get Matt Besser’s new comedy album “The Six Most Important Sets in the History of Standup” at mattbesser.com!
Happy 200th episode of Comedy Bang Bang! Take a break from reading the funny papers and tune in as Jason Mantzoukas joins Scott to talk about his role on Enlightened, movie theater handies, and anything else in the news. Old friend Don Dimello sends over the snake skin wearing Cactus Tony to shed some light on the recent controversy at the daycare he runs during Don’s late night productions, tells us about his one year of service for the Croatian armed services, and gives us a look into his other job at the Arclight theater. Check out the full video at Youtube.com/Earwolf!
Once again we asked YOU which were some of your favorite scenes from the past episodes of improv4humans and we put together volume 2 of this special collection of improvised scenes. Listen to an all star cast of improvisers create scenes based off suggestions from Twitter, Man On The Street Interviews, and horror stories. Be sure to pick up an improv4humans shirt from the Earwolf Store and follow @MattBesser on Twitter to send in your improv suggestions. Music by Bobby Matthews and Dragoon.

This week I’ve been going through my hoard of podcasts and decided to relisten to everything I have that features Andy Daly. Daly is a darn good comedian who excels in performing as outlandish characters in his acts (here’s a good sample of what he does), but his true talent lies in improv. Every character he performs on Comedy Bang Bang goes from a goofy premise to an outlandishly hilarious result that has to be heard to believed. There’s Don Dimelo, a lecherous theatre director, Hot Dog, a waterskiing champion who’s trying out for Sha Na Na, and Chip Gardner, a jolly satanist seeking to be elected as the honorary mayor of Hollywood. Daly’s easily one of the most underrated comedians alive.
Hmm, maybe I should do a podcast portrait series…
We know not everyone can get to one of the Comedy Bang! Bang! LIVE tour dates. So, the final portion of every show is being recorded and released through the Earwolf store. Pick up the collection for $25 and receive each show as they happen. Wow, what a deal!
Note: Episodes will also be available individually for $2.99. These recordings only represent a portion of the live show, so be sure to make it out to a show near you!
- Portroids of people who appear in episode 2 airing this Friday (June 15, 2012) on IFC. DON’T MISS IT (even if you already watched it online)!!
There is stuff in the broadcast this week that wasn’t online. So watch!
Comedy Bang! Bang! on IFC has been a long time coming and in less than a week you’ll be able to catch the premiere! To ease the pain of the wait, we’re bringing you a full week of Earwolf podcasts heralding the show’s arrival. I know it’s highly illogical, but we’ve brought in bandleader Reggie Watts and producer/guest Tim Heidecker to talk to two of the the interesting strangers who made their way from the podcast to the television show. Stay tuned to Earwolf all week to hear Scott, Reggie, and special guests like Will Forte and Dave Koechner preparing you for the premiere of Comedy Bang! Bang! on IFC. Tune into IFC this Friday at 10/9 central to see Zach Galifianakis, Gillian Jacobs, Thomas Lennon, Will Forte, and some guy named Andy Daly.
