Matt Walsh, Kevin Dorff, and Pamela Murphy cook up a buffet of scenes on today’s improv4humans! They cover everything from emergency rooms, highlander golfers, and the presidential debate. Plus, Eric the unpaid Intern returns for some Man On The Street Interviews from the USC game. Be sure to pick up an improv4humans shirt from the Earwolf Store and follow @MattBesser on Twitter to send in your improv suggestions. Music by Bobby Matthews and Dragoon.

I can't get enough of Eric's Man on the Street Interviews. Every one of them has been hilarious.

I just love that Eric can live in l.a. for more than a year and not know that the farmers market is less than a mile from his house. Aloof is an understatement.

As someone who used to work at a hospital, I can substantiate that there are, indeed, way more "strange object in ass" stories than you would think actually happen in real life. Plus, people are willing to yell their embarrassing excuses across a crowded ER if they think it will cut down on their wait time.

Also, Matt's observation that the drunk tailgater actually felt sorry for Eric the Unpaid Intern was hilarious!

Damn it.

Edit: I don't go on 4Chan, but I do lurk many internet forums. Mostly AI ones and this.

According to Know Your Meme, the phrase "rustled my jimmies," which Eric used in this episode, is an Internet meme that has been used on online discussion forums, most notably 4chan.

I'm not very prolific in Internet forums (other than Earwolf!), but my past experience as a newspaper reporter has provided me with the patience and tools (Google! Bing.com!) to research inane Internet references that I missed out on.

Also, I have to Google approx. 75% of what Eric says, both on the show, and in life.

Fun behind-the-scenes fact for Eric's fanbase: Eric's favorite website is Reddit. And maybe Pizza Hut Delivery Tracker.

Oh man, Matt Besser discovering 4chan. That makes me laugh.

Most of those hilarious internet memes on the internet originate at 4chan's /b/ board. Rickroll is one of the most famous examples.

However it's also full of a lot of strange porn. Very strange porn.

My friends are balls deep in the interwebs as well Brettster, and it's a deep/epic rabbit hole. Earwolf has a great forum with very few trolls, whereas 4chan is the bottom of the gutter for the internet. That's where the craziest shit on the web comes together. There's also as Sarel said, very strange "porn."

So basically I agree.

This has been a big week. First Paul answered my question on HDTGM?, then Matt was this close to saying the name of our podcast when they selected my video suggestion. I love where you went with it, funny show as always.

Question to ask at the farmer's market: Which is better, Walmart or Target?

4chan provides a pretty valuable service, if you don't have the cash to get Japanese girls dressed as sports mascots to puke in each other's mouths in person.

I think Matt will eventually pull some strings to have Eric host an interview show on Earwolf in which Matt chooses all of the questions.

The line "my six month old committed suicide" elicited far more laughter then it should.

I also support Eric having an interview show. Look out Charlie Rose.
