Colton Dunn, Pamela Murphy, and Alex Fernie are here along with special musical guest Chris Farren of Fake Problems for a musical edition of improv4humans with Matt Besser! Chris treats us by playing some songs which serve as inspiration for improvised scenes about a member of a band who only sits back & gets high, giving that special someone a gift that really benefits yourself, a store that specializes in “Fleeces & Jesus,” and much more! Humans of San Francisco, improv4humans with Matt Besser will be LIVE at San Francisco’s Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival on Saturday, August 9th at 2pm with special guests Chris Gethard, Lauren Lapkus, and Seth Morris! Be sure to watch many of the stars of improv4humans on the new Hulu series called Hotwives of Orlando. This is some funny shit and it’s available now. Make sure to get the UCB Comedy Improv Manual, Matt Besser’s new comedy album at mattbesser.com, and Fake Problems’ music over at www.fakeproblems.com.

Nice. Just a few hours ago I listened to the recent Todd Glass Show that Chris was on. Good songs and a funny guy too. This should be a good episode.

Hilarious! When Colton Dunn asked Besser to read the letter as a Casey Kasem and he paused and said..."What's that?"...jesus christ I busted up uncontrollably. Normally, awesome, I laugh at this podcast on the regular. But I'm at work, in an office, using headphones, and everyone just looked at me like I lost my mind. But that probable happens every day as I'm usually listening to Improv 4 Humans here daily.
My band could use a guy that just sits back and gets high btw, thanks for the idea!

These bands I4H keeps having are terrible. They aren't bands, actually. They're just these pedro the lion douchebags one after the other. Really steps on the flow of the show and seems like a pointless addition.

Harsh frostedbutts, but I see your point. A podcast isn't the best format for an epic 6 piece band though, so that explains the smaller singer/songwriter types. But ultimately, I think it's just another way to spark the improv, like twitter suggestions or crap on YouTube. It's just a new fresh way to inspire the scenes.

@frostedbutts 4 posts on these boards. All complaints. 3 complaining about musical guests. 2 comparisons to Pedro the Lion. What's your deal? Lazy trolling? Passionate hatred for anything that reminds you of Pedro the Lion? What did Pedro the Lion do to you?

Just came to agree with everyone except for frostedbutts. I like Matt's taste, Colton Dunn is one of my favorites on this show, oh yeah and Pam Murphy kills

I really liked Chris Farren, I never heard of him bebore. I'm trying to cut out his first song, the acoustic version of eagle eyes, really beautifull!!
I thought david bazan was great too, Improv4Humans introduced me to him aswell.

Every single comment you have on here is negative, every one. Don't you have better things to do than bitch about a free podcast? The music isn't always my style per se but I always enjoy it and it adds a different element to the show and they usually get some great bits from it.

Guys, give Mr. Butts a break, he's absolutely right - this wasn't a band, actually, it was a solo singer-songwriter.

Fantastic episode.

Fernie's twist by going bland and 'wanting to work at the orchard supply store'; and then ultimately not getting a job there was really great.

Good callbacks about the attempted murder throughout.
Check out my podcast! A friend and I watch an old show and do some bits.

I lived in Naples until I was 21, and it's always weird hearing it namechecked in the real world. For a tropical paradise, it's a real shithole.

I like music, I like comedy.
But I have to say that I find myself skipping through the musical guest here.
Artists I like as well, and I know it's another way to spark improv- I can appreciate the cleverness but I find it to be a gear change
I don't enjoy here.
I have a similar experience when a stand up opens for a live band.
Two great tastes that for me don't taste great together.

Lucky for you, this is a podcast, and not a live band, so you have the option of fast forwarding if you don't like it. Your opinion is noted. Now can everyone stop whining about the music you don't like on the free podcasts you listen to?
