Comedy Bang! Bang! on IFC has been a long time coming and in less than a week you'll be able to catch the premiere! To ease the pain of the wait, we're bringing you a full week of Earwolf podcasts heralding the show's arrival. I know it's highly illogical, but we've brought in bandleader Reggie Watts and producer/guest Tim Heidecker to talk to two of the the interesting strangers who made their way from the podcast to the television show. Stay tuned to Earwolf all week to hear Scott, Reggie, and special guests like Will Forte and Dave Koechner preparing you for the premiere of Comedy Bang! Bang! on IFC. Tune into IFC this Friday at 10/9 central to see Zach Galifianakis, Gillian Jacobs, Thomas Lennon, Will Forte, and some guy named Andy Daly.

Ching-Chong Matinee sounds awesome. Fall can't come soon enough.

It's good to know I'm not the only one who listens to these podcasts at odd hours of the morning/late nights. :P

Awesome episode.

Does anyone else think Reggie sounds like Ike Willis from Zappa's mid-eighties line-up? Listening to Reggie stifle his laughter is infectious.

That was funny when Tim pretended he had a sponsorship from tvguide.com . Also, it's funny when all these Earwolf shows pretend they have a sponsorship from Pepsi.

Oh, I love the new ads.

I was just thinking the other day: "these podcasts are OK, but I really miss those grating and awful ads from normal radio" I know what you're thinking - there have always been ads on the podcasts! But those were all thematically appropriate, in the voice of the hosts and didn't yank the listener out of the show. These unfunny and completely generic Pepsi ads are a welcome change from all of that.

I was just thinking the other day: "Earwolf provides me and 100,000+ other people with 8-10 hours of free audio every week. In an economic climate where advertising revenue — especially online advertising revenue — has bottomed out, I'd be surprised if sponsorships even offset the expense of transferring hundreds of GB of data per week." I know what you're thinking - the success or failure of Earwolf's business model is not my problem! But if the business falters, so too goes the comedy.

Ergo, rather than complain, I have chosen to grit my teeth and endure the sisyphean task of listening to a 60-second Pepsi spot.

Ching Chong Matinee sounds riveting, plus a new production from Don Dimelo, CBB TV on Friday, and another smooth album from Barry R.? Good God, this really is highly illogical.

Great podcast!

Like the rest of the posters, I too want to see Ching-Chong Matinee; truly epic filmmaking by our great arthouse director.
It was great hearing Don Dimelo, but was sort of scared. Was that an imposter Don Dimelo that showed up, since the last time Don Dimelo was on he committed suicide in the Cavalcade of Daly Deaths on the Mantzoukas episode?

That final song I would love to have as an alarm....

Snakeskin babysitter almost made me crash coming back from lunch; when Andy Daly breaks character, it is especially hilarious for some reason.

I was just thinking the other day: "It's amazing how often people will think about a very specific scenario, and then within a few days a situation arises that directly pertains to that same scenario."

But really, the adds shouldn't be that bothersome. I'm actually glad to hear that Earwolf has some support (even if the adds are creatively lame). Plus, without these companies sponsoring the show I probably would never had heard of Google or Entertainment Weekly.

Reggie's "woah"s after every single impression Tim did were my absolute favorite thing about this episode
