If you like television, you'll love this week's episode of Comedy Bang Bang! From the newly renewed NBC comedy Community, Gillian Jacobs is here to seek forgiveness for her iPhone indiscretions and give us just a taste of how she got her big television break. Also joining us is the of American Idol's Jermaine "The Gentle Giant" Jones who is using Comedy Bang Bang as the platform to tell the pure, unadulterated truth behind his departure from the Fox reality hit. How will these television superstars fair against each other in a game of Would You Rather? That's for me to know and you to find out...by listening to the podcast, that is.

A little bit in advance, Scott? Recording this in May 2011 was the correct bit in advance, don't misunderstand my italics.

Plugs theme! Yay. Our new album is out next Tuesday. We love CBB and we're glad the guests got a chuckle out of our plugs theme.

Scott got my real name right! That makes him better than most human beings on the planet.

This would have been a great edition of Would You Rather? except Scott wrecked it by disrespectfully talking over the theme music both at the start and the finish.

As someone with a long running and inexplicable obsession with Michigan J. Frog, this made my day.

Okay, first of all, here's the story. I love that the audience has to be helped along with envisioning a 7'1" person by imagining little giraffes eating from banana trees. Immediately one of my favorite episodes - Jermaine's a great character, Gillian and Jordan definitely need to be on regularly. The story of the Aaliyah song in the car was hilarious. "I know you think you found an inconsistency in my story" leading to a hilarious explanation is Andy Dalyian in its greatness.

How is it that no commenters have offered to be Gillian's friend yet? Gillian, I will be your friend. I'll help you put up new lighting fixtures and I won't mind it if you suddenly quit games of Words with Friends.

Great show! I find Gillian to be immensely likable, despite the fact that she is a cat murderer and word-game aborter.
Chop off the "En", Chop off the "In"

Stop in!!

HAhahaha Scott is the best host!

Gillian I will not be your friend, I can't afford to waste time starting Words With Friends games that don't go anywhere, and I don't know what kind of person would quit two games!!

Many of Gillian's mannerisms, involuntary groans, and her general antipathy toward Scott have a decidedly Womplerian bent. I wonder if she's actually Marissa's long-lost older sister…

if marissa had been there there's no way scott would have been able to get away with pushing poor gillian around. there definitely needs to be a jacobs/wompler team up episode, imo

My favorite part was Scott's subtle joke when Gillian was talking about if someone sets off a firework in the woods...'does anyone hear it? Oh, I'm sorry.'. Wonderful!
