Another year has flown by, so what better way to celebrate than to revisit some of the best Comedy Bang Bang moments that YOU voted for! Special guest Paul F. Tompkins makes a rare appearance as he helps Scott Aukerman countdown numbers ten through six of the listener selected episodes of the year and some very special b-b-b-bonus clips. Stay tuned for Pt 2 to see which episodes made it to the top of the list!

Awesome to hear some Lauren Lapkus love on the charts. It was a banner year for Lauren on CBB and Improv4Humans.

I only voted for 3/5 of those clips. Outrage, outrage I say!

I only voted for 1 out of all those clips (although a couple of them probably would be my 11 and 12) I feel out of touch with what the other fans like. Unless it's because one person voted 1000 times. I found that Adam Pally non-character work funny too but top 10 really?

Well, I was enjoying this, but then that host guy called me a swiffer for listening. What the fuck, man?

I voted for all but one of these. Love George St. Geegland and Gil Faizon. Also surprised Finger Guns didn't crack the top 5. Great so far though. Looking forward to the top 5!

I'm also very surprised how low Finger Guns made it. And I forgot how absolutely hilarious that Zazzu clip was.

Paul's the perfect guest for the Best Of! He's heard and/or been on every episode. Plus, I appreciate someone who is just as excited at the prospect of yelling B-B-B-BONUS as I am while listening!

It really warms my heart that Paul F Tompkins seems to enjoy listening to the show as much as any of the fans.

It is outrageous bordering on insane travesty that the Schwartz/Watts/Besser Bjork episode only made it in as B-b-b-b-bonus-s-s-s.

Assuming it's not showing up more in depth later. That was my favorite episode of the year!

BBQ pulled bjork should be top 5. That's a travesty.

If I don't see Fourvel & a cavalcade of suicides in the top five I'll probably cry.

Outrage! I demand a recount!

But for real, it's a wonder that any of the shows can be picked best,when they are all amazing. The b-b-b-bonus clips keep me satisfied for those little nuggets of goodness that don't warrant a whole episode.

St. Vincent audibly groaning after a Foam Corner joke is my favorite moment of the year.

I have no idea what you're talking about. The man known as Paul F. Tompkins, as they said, has only appeared a handful of times on the show.
