Academy Award-winner Nat Faxon reveals his most secret pain on today’s Comedy Bang Bang! Special co-host/DJ Forsythia drops by to bring up listenership to her late night radio show, lifts spirits by playing some of her favorite songs, and tells us about the struggles of becoming a woman at the age of 14. Also, Nat describes the premise of the show Ben and Kate, shares the truth behind Hall & Oates’ “I Can’t Go For That,” and talks about his pet collection. Plus, Forsythia has something to tell her mother during a game of Would You Rather?

Really nice episode. It was mellower than usual but was super clever.

And did I hear correctly on Doug Loves Movies that the CBB Live show is ending soon? Does this have any implications for the other forms of CBB (Podcast, TV show)? That kind of made my heart skip a beat when I heard it.

Call me crazy, but upon hearing Scott and company discuss Ralph (actually Rowlf) the Muppet at length and pronounce him a "bear," I had a hard time not emphatically saying "he's a dog" out loud, as if my important message could somehow get through to them by magically passing through the barriers of space and time.

I ain't never heard of no Fax Natton. Is he one of them dudes that you can only find on the Wingding Internet?

Big ups to Forsythia! I've been listening to her for the last 45 years on the WIND.
Chop off the "En", Chop off the "In"

Lennon Parham and Andy Daly should make a baby together, and Lendy Dalham would instantly be the funniest person ever.

Great low-key, slowburn of an episode. Nat was perfect for the show (I'd love to hear him back) and diving into Lennon's character's backstory was hilarious (obviously Lennon should be back as well).

Nat Faxon is one of those guys that shows up in a million shows/movies/commercials and is always good in it, even if the thing itself isn't that good.

I must admit, I did talk to my computer to correct Scott. Now I feel bad...

Obviously there are more qualified people that can answer this, but based on Scott's twitter this is him retiring from the putting together the live show at UCB after 10 years. There was no mention of this choice applying to any other forms of CBB.

I remember hating A Winter's Tale. At the end she's like "Pow! I'm alive, king-hole. How ya like me now, bitch!?" The ending felt a little un-Shakespearian

Ya he only talked about the live show ending not the podcast or the TV show so I think those will be fine, and Scott even said that a new stand up show will take bang bang's place even though it will be sad to see it go.

Also just wanted to say how great of an episode this was and I have got to say when Scott said who watches the watchmen that just cracked me up.
