Scott Aukerman, Anthony King, and Alex Fernie join Matt Besser for this week’s improv4humans! They turn suggestions from Twitter into scenes about getting blacklisted from alarm clock stores, the consequences of celebrating Kid’s Day, and pragmatic fairy tale parents. Later, a Crap on Youtube leads to a confrontation about asking permission to order food on a date, and a rock group decides to destroy the venue for their encore.

Wow, I can't believe it's been five years since Scott was last on I4H (and that episode was coincidentally the one I ended up sponsoring!)

Ah, so Scotty Auk's hoping to get that I4H bump for his own podcast. Hope it works out for him.

Do we think that Matt Besser's prominent mentioning of the fact that Comedy Bang Bang is reaching a 500 episode milestone was also a sly way of emphasizing the fact that Improv4Humans is also approaching a 300 episode milestone, and -- as he made clear on the 200th episode -- Matt will simply not tolerate any further failure on the part of corporate podcast culture to acknowledge this kind of achievement? Or, am I sounding a little too much like Alex Jones here?

Also -- though I thoroughly enjoyed this episode -- whatever happened to the continuation of the multi-episode Mope arc from last week? I really hope that that will continue.

Also (at the clear risk of outstaying my welcome) -- I really like how much Scott Aukerman's improv style differs from most people who appear on this podcast, insofar as he will sometimes appear to willfully focus on inane, dead-end details (as he does on CBB) in an apparent effort to derail everything, which forces the other (more classically trained) improvisers to try to deal with his gleefully-introduced roadblocks. Talented and experienced improvisers (such as those featured here) are usually up to the challenge, but the results are always very engaging.
