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.



(1:35 - 35:39) Let's Listen to a Song - "Death to the Lads" [2:15 - 5:05] - 1. Introducing a new SO to parents enthusiastic about everything Trump has done so far (5:29 - 20:21) / 2. A bandmate's girlfriend comes to band practice with the sole purpose of shitting on the band (20:24 - 35:39)


(36:24 - 59:50) Let's Listen to Another Song - "Laughing or Pretending to Laugh" [36:38 - 39:53] - 1. Dan has a disastrously bad fake laugh (39:56 - 49:58) / 2. Sleeping on a rickety, freezing roof in the pursuit of a whimsical romance (50:02 - 59:50)


(59:51 - 1:24:02) 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 (1:03:38 - 1:12:24) / 2. Musician can’t seem to explain who their lyrics are about (1:12:28 - 1:24:02)


(1:24:03 - 1:41:21) Let's Listen to Another Song - "When I Was a Boy I Thought I Was a Fish" [1:24:16 - 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!
