The bros are back in town! Andy Samberg, whose film That's My Boy opens this weekend, and Scott's weed dealer Bro have reunited, and this time they have a good rapport (unless you were to ask Bro about it). The boys talk Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, Bro's paradise, and Woody Allen. Plus the debut of a new feature, "Bobby Moynihan Talk." This is a good week to be a bro!

Sweet! I've missed bro, can't wait to listen. I have to finish editing my podcast first, but this shall be my reward. I fucking loved the show. I hope that it's successful, because it's fucking hilarious (seriously, it almost ruined my brain so get off my back Louis) and you deserve it.

This latest appearance only furthers my view of Adam Pally/Bro as a strange comedy enigma. I don't really enjoy his unwillingness to play along with any of the show's regular stuff (as it's hard to tell how much is genuine versus being bad improv character work), but I totally enjoy Scott and Andy calling him out on it every time it happens.

Andy was great as always and I am totally on board with the idea of Scott and him moving to Telluride to live together in a cabin. As long as they podcast their experience constantly while doing so.

I hope Bro comes back. Awkwardly awesome show.

Scott, your Improv4humans (5humans?) appearance was hilarious. Love that podcast!
Congrats to Earwolf on the IFC show!

I'll never watch a Woody Allen movie the same way again.

Yeah, this episode was odd. It seems like "Bro" stopped being "Bro" at a certain point and slipped back into being Adam Pally. I feel like "Bro" was a little more committed to the character of "Bro" the first time he made an appearance as "Bro". Are you starting to get annoyed by the repetition of the word "Bro" in quote marks? Cuz I'm starting to get annoyed at myself for doing it, bro.

The thing is, Pally really showed he can commit to a character in Episode 123, with Amy Poehler. He even freestyle-rapped in the voice of David Fine, which was kinda amazing.

Despite the guests' brazen ignorance of (goats?) protocol regarding the timing of plugs and voting in WYR, I liked the episode a lot.

If Andy wants to become Comedian of Hollywood, he should get in touch with Chip Gardner and propose a joint ticket.

My favorite lyrics to the Would You Rather? theme song used to be "Shut the fuck up, we're listening to the Would You Rather? theme" but I sincerely hope Bobby Moynihan Talk keeps going.
I actually loved how early Adam Pally was called out on his character so he was gradually able to joke in his own voice, just using Bro when something called for it.
Great episode, but I was kinda sad for Scott when Would You Rather? completely fell apart. I'm sure he'll be fine.

Not nearly enough praise for Bobby Moynihan for my taste. Come on guys, give that man his propers.

HAhahahaha the idea that Scott texted Bro saying "Adam's here, come burst in and ruin it" raises so many questions on Comedy Bang Bang's "open door policy".

Oh man, I would kill for an entire episode with Samberg as Nic Cage. That impression screams out for some crazy CBB-style improvised backstory a la Tompkins/Daly/Adomian's characters.

Crazy that it's been almost a year since the last Andy/Bro episode, really doesn't feel that long ago..

And Andy and Adam have the most infectious laughs ever, thanks for another great ep!

WOW do I get unnecessarily pissed when guests don't respect the Would You Rather rules. IT'S A COMEDY PODCAST! THE POINT OF THE GAME IS TO BE FUNNY JAINDDKDKJEWSHAHGEHEHD
