Amy Poehler, Seth Morris, and Joe Hartzler are roommates, experiment with end of the world scenarios, and through the power of video games leap to a future with laser dollars on today’s improv4humans! Plus, Amy helps Joe send a special message to a certain special someone! 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 “Woo Pig Sooie: Comedy for Atheists” at mattbesser.com and Dragoon’s new album “This Galaxy Is But A Nursery” at dragoongalaxy.bandcamp.com!

First time I've yelled Irvine Welsh at my phone. I'm the worst.

I'm not given to hyperbole, but this is the funniest episode of the funniest show ever recorded by sentient beings.

While I4H is consistently hilarious & enjoyable, whenever there's an episode with another original Brigadier, it's particularity awesome.

I liked that although Amy played a character in one of the earlier scenes that was mocking people who study philosophy, at the end she went on to talk about the existentialist idea that all we have is now, and how we don't have much power over what happens in the world & to us, but we do have control of how we choose to respond to it.

The trope of the college philosophy student mindlessly doubting everything comes from people that we've all met. But it's just like the relatively small proportion of Atheists (or any members of a stereotyped group) who happen to give the rest of us a bad name by being especially loud yet idiotic. It was satisfying, after the pseudo-philosophical dipshit character, that Amy went on to talk about a salient philosophical paradigm.

And that's one of the many reasons why I love you guys.

For real though, 39 hours for a piece of rare loot in some games ain't shit.

Go get Dragoon's new album guys. I highly recommend it if you are into the stuff Matt has played thus far. Plus the start of every song makes me think Matt is about to do his "welcome to improv4humans!" drop.

This episode was really fun. Thanks Matt.

Also, that youtube video was completely insane

Re-listen to this episode and consider the question: What if the woman Joe Hartzler is pining over is Amy Poehler?
