Chad Carter, Ian Roberts, and Sean Conroy join Matt Besser to celebrate 300 episodes on this week’s improv4humans! They perform scenes about a variety show performer with terrorist inclinations, President Martin Van Buren’s upbringing as a bubble boy, and dating someone who speaks like a James Joyce book. Plus, we witness the final round of cuts for the Safety Patrol, and a struggling ice cream franchise promotes itself with fancy napkins.

Ian takes it to another level. Whenever an episode has Ian or Andy Daly, I get so excited!
