Award-winning (sleepwalking) comedian, author, and filmmaker Mike Birbiglia makes his second appearance along with intern Gino Lambardo on today’s bonus Bing! Bong! Comedy! Mike tells us about his new special My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend and focusing on a more joke heavy show on his upcoming 30 city tour. Coincidentally, first time guest Victor Diamond drops by with his manager Tiny to talk about his upcoming all Christmas Carol review.

Brendon Small must have the oddest appearance numbers ever, an almost four year gap broken by two shows in a month.

Woah we get to hear Jon Gabrus this episode without a psychopath maniacally laughing over 75% of the show? I'm stoked
I don't have any electronics and food is hard to come by

So I guess people were wrong about Bigbiglia being the infamous mystery CBB guest who got pissed off during his ep

Scott did also say they're on good terms and it was just a misunderstanding about what the show was.

Brenden's characters were hilarious. I love the dual character approach, I'm surprised it isn't done as much, besides Kroll's lunatic Mexican brigade.

Wire Club was a short-lived super group in the late 80's including members of both Wire and Escape Club.

It often sounds like Birbiglia is unable to deal with the extreme bit saturation from Scott and Gabrus and would rather have a real conversation, but he powers through nicely. Solid ep, Gabrus is great and he looks a little bit like Orson Welles

Full confession: I used to listen to a LOT of Opie and Anthony.

Mike B. actually has a pretty long history with them, which led to some pretty good radio after he got booed really badly at one of their live shows.

Mary Lou Henner and her memory are more of a running gag on this show than "my wife." My wife.

As Jack Sjunior would list them: episode 256, 32, and episode 260.

Oh bother. Let's move gracefully on from that episode.

I don't know how Brendon Small can talk in such a deep voice, has to be hurting the next day.

oh my lanta this episode is incredible! brendon was pee-your-pants funny and jon was great as always, but i thought mike really "birbiglia'd" his performance on this appearance... just kidding loved him too!

ps - scott i'd appreciate it if you either reference all religious celebrations this time of year or keep the next few episodes non-denominational out of respect.

pps - is this episode a candidate for BOOTY (best out of the year) 2013 or next year or is there a flaw in the system and will it fall through the cracks?
