Episode 315 - The Smith Street Band and the Incredible Shrinking Feet

Recommended Posts

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.

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!
