This special B-B-B-BONUS Comedy Bang Bang was recorded live on June 6th at the Scottish Rite Theater in Austin, Texas with the stars of Adult Swim’s NTSF:SD:SUV! Martin Starr, Brandon Johnson, and depressed teen Rick Faber join Scott to talk about Martin’s affiliation with the DARE organization, Brandon’s porn habits and Rich’s improv training. Vin Diesel’s scoliosis-ridden twin brother Bill Diesel drops by the show share some Diesel family wisdom and promote his Vine account before the guests and Scott throw down in a Freestyle Rap Contest for the record books!

Is anyone here a Tales From the Crypt fan? I only ask because Bill Diesel sounds so much like the ventriloquist doll from the episode ”The Ventriloquist Dummy” that when he started getting angry I had to check and make sure Don Rickles was still alive...

FREE WHEELY. the aquarium owners(mods) put me in jail.

Nope no video.

Scott did about 10 minutes before the start of the show and Neil did about 15 minutes and they went straight into recording the episode then.

Neil Campbell is the MVP of Comedy Bang Bang for 2013 so far.

This was the best crowd of any live Comedy Bang Bang thus far IMO.

Initial reactions upon firing up this b-b-b-bonus eppie:

1.) Man, that crowd is fired up.

2.) CBB and Doug Loves Movies frequently feature twitter submissions where the submitters' twitter handle is funnier than their actual submission. People be usin' some funny names on twitter, am I right?
Chop off the "En", Chop off the "In"

Stop in!!

Glish Muff!!

Think everybody was just glad to be inside. We were all queuing outside for about 45 mins in scorching heat.

Possibly the best all-around performance by a panel on a freestyle rap battle yet.

I was waiting for Martin's rap because of the Rap Battle episode of Burning Love and I was so not disappointed.

Bill Diesel was such a treat. I remember reading an article a long time ago about how Vin Diesel's mom was about to lose her house and he wasn't going to pay for it. So I think that Bill probably painted a pretty accurate picture.

Great episode. So bummed I was at work and not at this show the other day.

Bill Diesel delighted me in magical way. I can't decide if he has the exact type of voice a brother of Vin Diesel would have, or if I it's the opposite.

Yeah, I think that was the best one, but this one had a larger panel and everyone was good. Or, put another way, Scott was 1/5 of this one rather than 1/3. ;)
