Loved the interview at the end.
Wow, episode 95 really dominated this and the best of What's Bothering You.
Best of 4 SOON.

Totally different podcast. That's Amy's podcast where she teaches humans how to improve.
But in all seriousness, Matt, thank you for all of the great laughs you've provided over the past 100 weeks. I too have been a listener since episode 1 and the evolution of this podcast has been great to see. Truly the best podcast in the universe (i.e., you did it).

HAPPY 100 EPISODES!
Yeah I was going to say, they seemed to act like it was a complete non-sequitur, but it had a logic to it, a very silly logic but I could see what he was going for.
And if someone stole my beard, I would be fucking mad.

ALSO: We absolutely NEED more behind-the-scenes stuff for favorite sketches. That was so awesome.

Then when they started in on the Tom Petty concert, my eyes went wide with recognition. I loved that sketch and Paul’s turnaround as Petty in the flashback so much that I even transcribed that exchange in the episode’s messageboard. “HOW COULD I HAVE FORGOTTEN THIS SKETCH?!”
I was happy just hearing the sketch again, silently laughing until tears in my cubicle where I am sitting as I type this. But then! To have Matt and Paul and John dissect the scene and attempt to recount their improv steps was such an absolute delight. Thank you so much for that, you guys!
In honor of this great, cagey improv sketch, I am now copying and pasting my initial transcription of the inciting incident:
Paul: "It's not like his BEARD fell off, did it?"
Paul: "It's not like halfway into the first song his BEARD fell off, I mean, that didn't happen, did it?"
Paul: "Ok ok ok. It's not like-"
Matt: "You're being a real fucking asshole, Paul."
Paul: "Well I'm speculating here! I want to know!"
Matt: "I'm sitting here with a goddamn Tom Petty tattoo on my fucking chest and you're laughing and having a good time knowing that we had our concert destroyed by some selfish asshole-"
Paul: "Ok! So THAT's what happened! It's not like this hypothetical scenario of his BEARD falling off."
Matt: "No... You don't even know what happened tho."
John: "You don't know what happened."
Paul: "No I don't! I'm just trying to get details, guys!"
(cuts to concert)
♫ This is the last D J♫
Matt: "So what song is this? Is this a cover?"
John: "This is the- no, this is one of the, it's like 10, 15 years ago it's like one of his newer songs he came out with-"
Matt: "15 years ago? Newer?- Hey what's happening?"
Tom Petty: "HEY! THIS FUCKER'S TAKING MY BEARD, MAN!"
Paul: "Ok, so WHAT HAPPENED?! You guys are at the concert, he's playing 'The Last DJ,' and some guy runs up and takes his BEARD? I was pretty close, between his BEARD falling off and a guy running up and taking it! You guys are assholes! The fact that I stuck my neck out there and said his BEARD fell off— which is pretty close to an audience member running up and taking his BEARD— and y-y-y-you don't even agree!"

I get most of the video game references (not proud of that...), but I still don't know what the hell "pawn all my limbs to afford an 18 hour car ride" means

I always felt like the laughter was from a) "This is ridiculous; did I just say his beard fell off?", and then b ) "Wait... does Tom Petty even have a Beard? Am I even thinking of Tom Petty right now/Did I forget who Tom Petty is? Or can I just do a Bob Dylan impression"? lol.
I felt like everything just got more & more ridiculous, but everyone established it and had to keep plowing forward (luckily for us all), and Paul just had to laugh at what was transpiring. All because of his decision to talk about someone stealing his beard. Awesome scene!
And awesome bit! The I4H Best Of's are always great, just being a collection of fantastic & hilarious sketches. But to get that little bit of new material was both interesting and added another hilarious layer to everything. Loved it! Best Podcast in the Universe continues! Time to make a few new fans out of I4H, I think. It's always a good idea to use the Best Of's to introduce this to friends...

If you waste one moment of your life trying to understand it, then he wins. Don't let him win.

I haven't listened to this Best Of yet, I don't think I voted for this one. I mean…there....why there could be ANYTHING on here! There could be anything from the last 99 episodes on this episode. The possibilities are near limitless. There could be:
- a Matt Besser Weird Guy™ voice...
- Lauren Lapkus could talk about ass play...
- Tim Meadows and Horatio Sanz could be cracking each other up...
- WENGERT!! could be on there...
- Lennon Parham and brian Huskey could be excitably enthusiastic about something...
- Chad Carter could be fucking brilliant...
- John Gemberling could talk about ass play but with ass meaning donkey this time...
- satanic face scraping…
- fecal blow through (FBT)…
- jazz scat cruiseships…
- the Sprite dunk-off brought to by Sprite…soda….
- the guy who's just "doing his thing" at the worst possible time…
- a blind brothel goer…
- albino friend census…
- the world's best (and worst) Raiders fan…
- the Sunshine Band Van…
- a Tom Petty beard thief…
- apocalypse crush smush scenarios…
- Dale Oshack of Butter, Texas…
- Dum Dum Dugan's Avengers teambuilding exercise…
- how to celebrate your Panthers v. Red Knights…
I MEAN VIRTUALLY ANYTHING!!
I love this show and I tell everyone I talk about podcasts with to listen to it.
