  1. Last Christmas, I gave you my heart. And then I gave my kidneys, liver, lungs and pancreas to some other people because I, George Michael, was an organ donor.

    24 - Songs of Experience

    Hello, I think I would be interested in this podcast but I do not know enough about the band to devote time to an "insider's" podcast. Can someone tell me if the hosts are considerate to those who are not U2 superfans and offer some background information, such as who are the members of this group?

    Episode 515 - Return to Suicide House Part 666

    It can't get old because Leo and Scaroline perform a NEW song every year. They clearly performed a track called "Spooky Love" in this episode. Were you not paying attention?

    Episode 508 - Beach Cheese

    You can't fake something like that. And if you could, why would you? It would be a huge waste of everyone's time.

    Episode 505 - Grass-Fed Bits

    I love it when I learn cool things like semi-famous alt-rock songsters of yesteryear are probably super-rich for helping to write and/or produce other people's mega hits. This guy, that woman from 4 Non-Blondes, the guy from Geggy Tah, the guy from New Radicals...others.

    Episode 502 - Error 502

    I haven't heard Jesse Ventura's actual voice in many moons so maybe it's just me, but for me James Adomian's impression of him is dead-on perfect. I even imagine that the real Jesse Ventura will dissolve into giggles when someone mentions Kitty Kelly.

    Episode 501 - Manchester Orchestra's Kith and Kin

    Great ep. Manchester Orchestra (or the two guys, at least) really brought the "Yes, and" throughout. Best myooosical guest, IMHO, since Colin Hay in terms of playing a song AND ALSO playing along.

    #CBB500 T-Shirt Giveaway!

    I sincerely tried to get into Comedy Bang! Bang!, and podcasts in general, several years ago when I downloaded an ep to listen to with my wife (Mai waiiife!) while we made Thanksgiving dinner one year, then almost immediately stopped listening when the show started with A LOT of talk about the weather. Didn't give the podcast much of a second thought until about three years ago when I got a new car with a USB port as part of the stereo, which made it all too easy to plug in my phone and listen. I got on the CBB horse for good somewhere around #297 (Taking the Bladder Out) and haven't looked back. It also helped that I cut my regular cable TV (television) somewhere around there and replaced it with a Roku that let me watch old eps of the CBB TV program that I hadn't previously been able to see because WTF is IFC LOL. Thanks for 500 episodes. One of these days I'll buy a t-shirt. Now I'm one of those jolly assholes who can't help but sing-repeat "It's been" and/or "It's been a while" whenever someone else says it. The show turned me onto the Birthday Boys, Andy Daly, and proved that I was correct to have a crush on Lauren Lapkus from when I knew of her only from Oranges: The New Black.

    Episode 488 - 3 Kidnapped Boys

    I definitely thought he was going for a Carson impression once or twice, especially when he started to tell that Terry Bradshaw story.

    Just wanted to post today to say: May Nineteen! The Cuervo Gold The fine Colombian Make tonight a wonderful thing

    Episode 473 - Tight Tort

    Maybe it's just me, but for me I'm happy to have a real-life example of a "landing page" to think about, when next I hear a commercial for Squarespace. "Oh yes," I'll say to myself, "like that fine page about the jellies, jams and preserves that they guy from the Comedy Bang Bang forum built on behalf of an imaginary character."

    Episode 464 - A Ton More Sexy

    I should not be surprised that people who actually post to a message board about a comedy podcast would also remember tiny details about this particular sketch. Seth's "Boston Powers" immediately came to mind when I heard this ep, and I haven't been able to stop calling people "Funky Boy" for a week now.
  14. That's pretty awful but still not as "quite unlistenable" as the MIDI conversion of Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas:" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psIdan9GSRM

    You swore wrong, bub.

    Episode 463 - 2016 Holiday Spectacular

    There was a quiet "Daniel Alfredsson" mention somewhere in there. I heard the name but I couldn't quite figure out why he said it.

    They do, but they just call them "steaks."

    Episode 462 - Breakin’ Since the 30s

    It's great that Scotty could book Nick Thune and the world's second breakdancer for this ep, but the REAL impressive feat is FINALLY getting Motion Capture on as a guest! I mean, the guy's been in I don't know how many movies, TV shows, and video games over the years and I'm sure his schedule is just packed tighter than Adam Scott's little butt so BIG UPS to Scott for the booking! Maybe it's just me, but for me he didn't sound anything like I was expecting. Isn't it weird when that happens?!?

    Episode 458 - Solo Bolo Cuatrolo

    "Cuatro" is Spanish for four. "Quatro" is Portugeuse for four.* Maybe they moved away from Spanish after they learned what "trolo" means in some parts of South America? *I learned this when a band I like released their fourth studio album and called it "Quatro" and then had to explain at their live shows that they screwed up the Spanish but were saved by the Portuguese.

    Episode 457 - Prepare for the Quake

    There was a tiny second during the Plugs song where it sounds like Showalter asks him if "Cookin' With Gas" is a real show, and Rowley says something - in what sounded like a non-accented voice to me, at least as far as I could tell with the song playing and the road noise that's always in the background because I listen while I drive - about how he never knows how to do plugs for himself while he's in character. Scott freaks out a bit, maybe because he's pissed about someone talking over the song or maybe because he doesn't want to break kayfabe.

    Episode 457 - Prepare for the Quake

    I thought Mark Sarsgaard the Crime Scene Cleaner/Expert was v. funny and I'll keep an ear(wolf) open for future appearances, but the voice/accent was Mingy to the point of distraction for me. I kept expecting Mark to clown us by suddenly making a sports reference and reveal that he's really Ming! Boy, I sure would've felt clowned if something like that had happened.
  23. Is that you, Kurt Cobain?

    Episode 452 - Pow! Pow! Power Wheels!

    I remember clearly this part of the medley because of the way Al sings "Eeeew!" like he's disgusted. I CANNOT remember anything I learned in Algebra II in high school, which Generals led which battles during the Civil War, or where on our office intranet I should look for certain product codes we use for internal communication. This can only mean that Weirdo Al should record a series of polka-style study guides for grades K-Post Graduate University.
