Episode 5 — Wistfulness & Kevin

I just realized a double meaning to the title, and I love it so very much. It's Improv For Humans, and it's also Improv By 4 Humans. This is a good episode, but nothing will ever live up to that pun, and it only took 5 weeks for me to figure it out.

This is such a good concept for a podcast that in retrospect I'm shocked that no one started doing it earlier. My only suggestion would be this: I know he's a busy man, but for the love of God, try to get Andy Daly to appear on the show as often as possible. That guy is so preternaturally funny that I almost find it disturbing.

I love this show and everyone involved, but I can't help but be a bit critical of the last episodes. it seemed more of a "let's all gang up on the weird person and give them a hard time" instead of the characters and scenarios of the previous weeks. And I can't help but cringe when the British robot voice announces the "one word suggestion...from Twit-ah." And yes, please more Andy Daly!

I'm finding that one of my favorite things about this show is that it has more re-listen value than practically any other podcast I listen to. I listened to (and enjoyed) this ep twice yesterday, and while I love stuff like CBB and Doug Loves Movies, I rarely feel compelled to sit through any episode a second time. This show is really something special. Keep it up, Besser! The pregnant daughter scene was possibly the best yet.

There's always one bit that really shows off just how good the comedians on this show are at improv, this week it was the pregnant daughter bit. The way the ham on the bagel kept coming back, especially at the end, and the way all the phrases like "juiced up" kept recurring, it was a thing of beauty. Please have Sean Conroy on every episode, not only is he hilarious in his own right, but his sensibility really complements Matt Besser's, they always seem to be on the same page. When the two of them take control of a bit, it always goes to some absurdly brilliant place.
