Hey guys, I'm not gonna lie. I haven't listened to the episode yet. And, i don't want this to sound whiny, but I noticed that with the new format of the website there's no where for the name of the character(s) that are on the show to go. You have the guests but not who's playing who. It's just a small gripe, but I felt like it should be noted.
Anyway, thanks, I guess... I'll just end this comment now.

Great episode! I was just listening to Mulaney's great What's New Pussycat? bit a few days ago, and actually thought to myself "I hope John Mulaney comes on Comedy Bang Bang if he's ever in Los Angeles at some point between SNL seasons." And, thanks to that surprise buzzer-beating appearance by Uncle Cowboy, I got all I could've wanted and more.
(Also: in the comments section of the 2-year anniversary episode (pre-redesign) someone joked that Paul Scheer does a great "Paul Scheer with a slightly deeper voice"-character, but Mulaney's old man is truly the top dog when it comes to "vocally-puzzling, indistinguishable from one's normal speaking voice"-characters.)

Oh Fabrice, 'More Than Words' was an Extreme song. By the way, Stefon is by far my favorite SNL character. When Bill cracks up I can't help myself. Actually Stefon would be a great character in SVU, there could be a midget transvestite murder in a seedy club and he could be Marishka's Hardandgay helper.

If someone could draw a picture of everyone in the booth during that second segment (Flying Fabrice Fabrice, Don Pardo as Marv Albert, Uncle Cowboy, George St. Geegland and Gil Faizon, the Coen Brothers, John Mulaney, Nick Kroll, and Scott Aukerman) I would be eternally grateful.
