Cancel all your plans because Amy Poehler is back along with co-host Neil Campbell for a post-Emmys chat on today’s Comedy Bing Bong! Amy gives us a sneak preview of the new season of Parks and Recreation, tells us about the reality shows she’s working on, and shares some important advice on improv. Then, special guest Alan Thicke stops by to talk about what it was like on the set of “Growing Pains,” if he ever competes with his son over women, and he performs his very own Parks and Rec theme song. Plus, Scott, Amy, Neil, and Alan go head to head to be crowned G.O.A.T. in the Freestyle Rap Battle!

Great episode! I love any episode that features PFT laughing loudly off mic and this episode has a lot of it.

I hope the hand cranked applause machine will become a recurring permanent fixture along with Scott's tear basin.

Neil and Scott rocking the same shoes. Me gusta.

PFT is a god damn national treasure.

This is an Improv4Humans-quality guest list. Neil, PFT, or Amy ALONE could make an episode a classic. All 3 together?!?! This is going to be a great listen.

New character from PFT?!?!?

UGH SO EXCITED.

I don't want to say bad things about him, because he is consistently EXCELLENT but I'm a little burnt out on some of his characters...

Amy Poehler or Neil Campbell as the best rapper of all-time? The world may never know.

Off microphone PFT laughter is always such a joy, especially at the silliest/dumbest stuff.

I have to say I agree, except for Garry Marshall. I will never tire of Mr. Marshall.

However, this new character was fantastic!

From Paul's amazing jacket, I take it that he recently vacationed in the village of Portmeirion. Congratulations on finding your way back, Paul.

My favorite bit of off-mic laughter was at Scott's "It's been" reference because Amy and Neil probably didn't understand why it was so funny to Paul.

Paul's off camera laughs are so genuine and wonderful.

There's a whole piece on Funny or Die that Neil wrote a while back on his time as a child model in Japan.
