1/3 of the Nerdist podcast & host of Jonah Raydio, Jonah Ray makes his first appearance along with fan favorite Nick Thune for a bro out sesh on this week’s b-b-b-bonus-s-s-s episode of Comedy Bang! Bang! After the guys confess their love of baseball movies, newcomer Tito Ben stops by to let us know all about his Eagle Rock plaza kiosk that he calls “Filipino Blockbuster.” Plus, an unforgettable game of Would You Rather? between bros!

I mean this as nothing but a compliment to Scott Achingman but that first stamps.com ad was the funniest thing on this whole episode. Other than Scott's out-of-hand rejection of Jonah's CLASSIC would you rather blunder.

I was liking Eugene's Filipino character here, definitely good enough to bring the man and the charac back.

Noticed him popping up in Kroll Show, seems like a talented enough guy

I was really looking forward to that promised return of "How you weigh?"

Eugene's Filipino character was fucking perfect. Thune is always a great presence, but along with Jonah, this episode was just an active home run. Swing Vote. Baseballs.
Blame the stupid mime.

I think this was the best episode since Bob Ducca's return a few weeks back.

Please make Tito Ben a regular character!! That was one of the funniest characters I've ever heard on the show. Eugene Cordero was hilarious.

Well I mean, if you don't include the two episodes inbetween, then sure.

I found this one much more enjoyable than the last two. I apologize if that is a controversial statement.

Wow, Scott is laying down the law! I felt like Scott was my Dad.

Also, Tito Ben was comedy gold.

Eugene Cordero fucking crushed it! I agreed with CruBolt that Tito Ben needs to be a recurring character. I did a Danny Thomas on my computer screen at work when Eugene was doing the backing vocals.

Great episode.

The best part about this episode and Tito Ben is that Filipino Blockbuster is an actual kiosk in the actual Eagle Rock Plaza. It might really be called Pinoy Blockbuster which is basically the same. Next time I'm in the Eagle Rock Plaza I'll go to the kiosk and ask for Tito Ben...

Did scott say 'A Nat Fraction' in the stamps ad? Does he write movies with Jim Rational Numbers?

I thought he said Matt Fraction, a great comic book writer. Since Scott's a comic fan and all that....
