Jeff Hiller, Jon Gabrus, and Mike Still follow the journey of a man with meaty meaty hands, reveal their inner monologues when pressure arises, and see if the greatest directors can answer simple questions on this week’s improv4humans with Matt Besser! Plus, we see what might happen if airlines allow cellphone usage in another edition of What’s Bothering You. You can now get the UCB Comedy Improv Manual at http://ucbstore.com/...visation-manual, Matt Besser’s new comedy album at mattbesser.com, and Dragoon’s new album at dragoongalaxy.bandcamp.com! Humans of San Francisco, there will be a LIVE improv4humans on Sunday, February 9th as part of SF Sketchfest. Go to www.sfsketchfest.com for tickets.

Three fucking Best Of contender sketches in a row. Holy shitballs. The "Meaty Hands" sketch and the "Vase" sketch had me hurting I was laughing so hard. I'm not even done with the episode yet.

Also, Mike Still is so great.

I was kinda bummed out you didn't really dig into how fucking terrible of a human being that "pick up artist" guy is. The bit you did based on the video was funny and it sort of delved into that creep's belief that he is owed sex when he pays for a date, but did not touch on how this tattooed misogyny golem apparently also believes women are dogs that you need to express dominance over and ugh. Ugh. "Pick up artists." The fucking worst
I don't have any electronics and food is hard to come by

I've listened to the bit where they open the restaurant like 5 times now. This episode is ridiculous.

Great episode, but Besser's views on cell usage in airplanes make no sense. We can use phones on buses, or trains, or other crowded spaces; the no-phone rule for planes only exists because airlines were worried cell usage would interfere with navigation. When that proved to be a trumped-up concern, the rule stayed in place so airlines could gouge consumers with $15 Go-Go wifi.

Most of what we do with phones these days doesn't require voice. Why shouldn't I be allowed to text, email, and browse the Internet on a plane? Because of the paternalistic impulse to create an "unconnected" space for a few hours? And if someone next to me wants to make a quick phone call to, say, coordinate with the person picking him/her up from the airport, why shouldn't they be allowed to? Because it might annoy me slightly? Whether my seat mate wants to have a phone conversation or a conversation with the guy across the aisle, I don't have some inalienable right to silence. That's why I bring headphones.

Silence is the foundation that serves as the basis for all creativity.
