Musical guest The Smith Street Band joins improvisers Drew Tarver, Betsy Sodaro, and Dan Lippert for this week’s improv4humans! They perform songs that lead to scenes about bringing a girlfriend to band practice, the worst fake laugh in the world, and a romantic evening on a freezing rooftop. Plus, a rock star has trouble explaining lyrics in an interview, and schoolchildren identify with animals for deeply existential reasons

(0:54 - 20:07) Let's Listen to a Song - "Death to the Lads" [2:15 - 5:05] - Introducing a new SO to parents enthusiastic about everything Trump has done so far

(20:24 - 35:25) Let's Talk Some More About That Song - "Sleeping in a bedroom full of assholes" - A bandmate's girlfriend comes to band practice with the sole purpose of shitting on the band

(36:24 - 49:45) Let's Listen to Another Song - "Laughing or Pretending to Laugh" [36:52 - 39:58] - Dan has a disastrously poor fake laugh

(50:03 - 59:44) Let's Talk Some More About That Song - Wil's romantic rooftop encounter - Sleeping on a rickety, freezing roof in the pursuit of a whimsical romance

(59:51 - 1:12:15) Let's Listen to Another Song - "Birthdays" [1:00:02 - 1:03:35] - Falling love over having to go to the bathroom at the same time

(1:12:29 - 1:23:46) Let's Talk Some More About That Song - How did he pick those names? - Musician has trouble explaining who their lyrics are about

(1:24:04 - 1:41:21) Let's Listen to Another Song - "When I Was a Boy I Thought I Was a Fish" [1:24:17 - 1:28:40] - Schoolkids relate to animals for morbid, existential reasons

Oh man, I was really hoping that last bit with the professor listing dancers in front of the dean would have fit in one last Kendrick callback. That would have been perfect!
