It is always great fun to appear alongside two of my favorite people/funny people, Scott Aukerman and Gillian Jacobs. I adore these two. I would marry them if I could! HURRY UP, SLOPE! YOU NEED TO GET SLIPPERYER!
It’s that time of year where you try to not get burned when roasting chestnuts over an open fire and have the whole family gather round the ol’ computer for a special holiday podcast treat! Scott welcomes fan favorite Harris Wittels as he tells us about his new book/stocking stuffer Humblebrag: The Art of False Modesty and showcases a brand new edition of Harris’ Foam Corner. Bjork, Neil Young, and Billy Braggart serenade us with some holiday cheer and Paul Rust has a couple of New Ho Ho Hos for us. Ice-T gives us a history lesson on Santa Claus and Bill Cosby-Bukowski makes up a holiday themed Jelloem. Then first timer Liz joins in on the festivities to talk about her new reality show “Publicity.” Merry Christmas!
One of our favorite film directors Werner Herzog and one of America’s favorite comedians Chris Fairbanks are here on today’s Comedy Bang Bang! Werner lets us know about his upcoming acting debut and Chris reveals the truth behind pancakes and flapjacks. Will Werner give up directing? Why are pancakes plaguing the nation? Does role play come into a game of Would You Rather? All these questions and more will be answered once you give this episode a listen!
“Fellow podcasters and first timers Julie Klausner and Jake Fogelnest are here on today’s Comedy Bang Bang! Jake & Julie recall the first time they met, each describe their podcasts “The Fogelnest Files” and “How Was Your Week” respectively, and share their love of BuzzFeed’s Katie Notopoulos. Garry Marshall returns to reveal his secret name, tell us about his new family sitcom based on The Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players, and plays a game of Would You Rather? You will hear tales of Garry’s past and we’ll finally answer the age old question as to if there is indeed a Scope brand toothpaste.”
“Paul F. Tompkins stopped by this episode of Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend to discuss clothes, words such as natty and Zumba, vegetables, the YMCA, guarding his house from early morning intruders, Sniglets, his career (Mr. Show with Bob and David, Kelsey Grammar Presents, Best Week Ever, DAG), the Pod F. Tompkast, relationships and therapy and having dated the wrong people and more. We also did a round of Just Me Or Everyone (click here to see the JMOEs we put on the screen), Topic Sombrero and HGFY. This is a special two-parts-in-one-week episode and some of the above is discussed in the second part which you can download bright and early on Thursday morning. Set your alarm. Which one? ALL OF THEM.”
