Better Call Saul’s Bob Odenkirk & Cabin Boy director Adam Resnick stop on by for a b-b-b-bonus Comedy Bang! Bang! Bob debuts his Johnny Carson impression, Adam reads an excerpt from his hilarious memoir Will Not Attend: Lively Stories of Detachment and Isolation, and author Thor Silverblatt stops by to ask a couple questions about Adam’s new book. Then, local advertisers Pammy and Earl Bixby drop by to announce their summer hours for their spooky haunted house in Connecticut. Warning: Listening to this episode might cause you to have a laugh attack.

I haven't listened yet, but I am already nervous about Adam Resnick on CBB. He is hilarious but extremely low energy. I hope I am wrong and it turned out awesome.

By the way, it's always great to have Sal Goodfellow on the show!

I was confused by this episode. Scott kept saying Adam was to his left, but he never established if he was at the 6 o clock or 12 o clock. So was Adam at the 9 or the 3? Hard to follow.

I'm sorry if this offends anyone, but that Thor guy seemed a little long-winded.

Thanks for playing my plugs theme today! Hearing Scott say "Static in Verona" totally made my day. Not to mention how much he seemed to like it!

Yes, I'm a real band with real music on iTunes and http://staticinverona.bandcamp.com.

Thanks again!

Adam Resnick sounds like a Zach Woods character.

Adam Resnick's involvement with Late Night with David Letterman's golden age and Get A Life makes him a Comedy God.

The Bixbys were clearly ghosts themselves. Kind of you not to brace them on this, but self-awareness is useful even for the dead.

Congrats, Bernard_Shakey, on your absurdist catchphrase! It would have stuck, if Bob hadn't interfered.

Thank you. It was an honor and a privilege to have my words spoken by the great Bob O, even if he did call me a "wise apple".
Scott and Bob were right though, it was a bit absurd and 'it's not that kind of show'. I therefore have decided to take their advise and "wise up". Now if you'll excuse me, the PBS New Hour is on and I'd like to begin masturbating to Jim Lehrer, post haste. Good day.

That was really good. Very Pixies-ish.

I can't believe it took Bob 55 minutes to use his catchphrase. Neil & Fran were really funny. I think they went to the Horatio Sanz School of Character Development.

Did anyone else catch that when Pammy talked about singing spooky songs, Scott started to ask if one of them is Monster Fuck, but got cut off?

I was wrong. Adam was really peppy, and had a hilarious rapport with Scott!

I loved Bob's take on that well spoken charisma bomb we all know and love as KCRW's "The Bookworm," AKA Michael Silverblatt.

good stuff, the most well-produced plugs song they've ever played on the show by far.


did you write that for CBB as a Pixies pastiche or is it on an existing album and it just happens to sound that way?
