Break the monotony of this Manic Monday with a new Comedy Bang Bang featuring Amy Poehler, The Bangles, and possibly the biggest guest we've ever had, DavidFiene! Amy and Scott gab about the original UCB pilot and the alternative comedy scene of the '90s, but that's nothing compared to the showbiz stories David has to offer. David came up with some of the biggest legends of comedy (I'm not going to namedrop, but he certainly will) and has walls and walls of quotes and advice for young comedic upstarts. Match that with the dulcet tones of The Bangles and the rap stylings of our guests and you've got an hour and a half of aural decadence. Would you rather listen to this episode or go about your humdrum day? I thought so!
Episode 123 — No Scoop for You

Freestyle Rap Battle needs to be a part of every show. I think Amy might have beaten Paul Rudd with her verse, seriously that was a thing of beauty. I love how both Amy and Paul's ended up completely nonsensical, but still managed to rhyme most of the time.

How in the name of Holy Sweet Baby Jesus did you get The Bangles on to perform? Loved that. Freestyle battle was amazing as always. I loved David Fine in the WYR "What if you already yell white power when you get out of vehicles?". Just terrific stuff.

That freestyle rap was an instant classic. Loved that Amy was actually trying to tell a weird story about being home-schooled and not just rhyming words. Although I did love Pally's rhyming of hallway with "infirmaray" and of course, Spot Awkwardman's non-rhyming MATH-SCIENCE. (I think he needs to do a collabo with the Who Charted gang + PFT on a MATHROCK/MATHSCIENCE mashup.)
