What’s this!? A b-b-b-bonus second episode of Comedy Bang! Bang! recorded live at the South by Southwest Festival! Featuring co-host Reggie Watts, as well as special guests Ken Marino, Rob Huebel, Natasha Leggero, and Martin Starr of Burning Love. What else could make this better you ask? Maybe Jesse Ventura crashing the party to spout conspiracy theories, wrestle, and join in on a game of Would You Rather will satisfy your podcast needs!

I really loved these past two live episodes more than I enjoy most of the live ones, both were awesome

And it was nice getting some songs from Reggie and Ken

Also, being someone who used to love wrestling as a kid I was cracking up at the Sting questions from Jesse Ventura in WYR

These are the best live episodes yet! Still bummed that I missed the second appearance by the Sheriff of Notthingham. Still want a follow up to "A Worthy Uhh..."

SERIOUSLY! How he doesn't have his own podcast or anything is flabbergasting.
Also, get Dan Van Kirk and Chrix Cox on here for some characters! Adomian along with those two on the Sklars' Character Extravaganzas make comedy magic.
Blame the stupid mime.

I think this episode may be even better than Monday's.

Also, interesting note: when comparing Reggie's performances on both of this week's shows, it's crazy (though maybe unsurprising) how much more active and eloquent he is when he's extremely high.

Oh, so THIS is what happens when actual fans show up to the live shows!

Also, Jesse Ventura dominated this episode.

I'm pretty disappointed in Scott for being in league with Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash,

For those interested, the guests for tonight's VPN live show are Paul F. Tompkins, Doug Benson (who is making his first appearance in years) and Steven Yeun from The Walking Dead. Great line-up!

That Legal Zoom commercial was the worst freestyle rap battle ever.

Yep, this should be great. It's cool to see them book a funny actor who isn't known as a "comedic actor". Yeun was on Speakeasy with PFT this week, and talked about having done improv before (with "the other" Howard Kramer, funnily enough), so I'm sure he'll be good.

I liked this episode a lot more than Monday's, too. Ventura is my favorite Adomian character, and when he showed up, I had forgotten that James was a guest on the show, so that was awesome.

Was there a catchphrase at the beginning of this ep? If so I totally missed it. Anyone know what it was?
