Attention humons, this is not a con. Paul F. Tompkins, Stephanie Allynne, Dan Lippert, and Ben Siemon join Matt Besser this week for a special improv5humans! Ever run into someone you hardly remember? Have your ever wondered what the real deal is with bronies? Was there ever a time when a person pestered you about possibly being related to you because you share a last name? Well, step back and relax with a nice glass of lemonade as you tune in to hear improvised scenes about these instances and much more! 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 Dragoon’s new album at dragoongalaxy.bandcamp.com!

The titular sketch was best-of material. Great episode in general, glad to hear PFT finally meet I4H!

(Sorry to be this guy, but...) Anyone looking for the song referred to in the sketch "Fucking Jesus in the Ass", it is by the Feederz, of their album "Ever Felt Like Killing Your Boss". Highly recommended.

Amazing episode, as always!

PFT on i4h -- this is a glorious marriage that should renew its vows once per fortnight. I'll gift you a toaster everytime.

Many don't know, but the F in Paul's name actually means something.

Paul Fucking Tompkins!

Bronies scene is getting my vote for the next Best Of.

I love that i4h changes up the format so often. People seem to get annoyed when podcasts do that but I disagree. Musical episodes, including non improv performers, Case Closed, Best Ofs... Never 100% sure what to expect each Thursday and that's the way I like it.

The brony sketch reminded me of how good the Bob's Burgers "Equestranauts" episode. PFT was so good as the evil Bronconius

I also got a crazy amount of satisfaction from the ending of the glider sketch, I knew it was coming and it was even sweeter when it actually happened

For some reason, the line "Welcome to Pitch Black's. I'm over here." made me bust out laughing.
