  1. Maybe not for you but for me it is now. I hate being told I cannot know something, especially after being told not to worry about it. It's not nigger and I honestly cannot think of a racial slur that would warrant a censorship.
  2. Honestly I have a hard time thinking about any other word that would offensive enough to bleep. To me nigger is the only word I can think of that might warrant it. Even then I don't consider it that offensive. Nor does anyone else I know. This is probably due to the difference of attitudes in the US vs Canada but who knows. But again what really shocked me was the sudden bleeping. In the last 61 episodes there have been plenty of offensive things said that could warrant a bleep, but that it happens now is just kind of weird.
  3. Interesting because I really thought it was based off what was said afterwords. Now I really want to know what it is. Personally I just thought it was really weird since you haven't censored in the past. For me it just took me out probably because I hate censorship. But to each their own. Fantastic! I look forward to it. One thing I am wondering is if having no audience reaction effects how you continue on the scene.

    Hey, guys, I just had a thought...

    I find it hilarious that the wikipedia article for Chris Kuroda redirects to Phish where his name is only mentioned once, in the box beneath the band members at the bottom.
  5. Personally I would like to see less of those characters because after a while it gets kind of tiring. I love PFT but I think that his near constant presence with many of the same characters loses it originality after a while. In fact, take James Adomian. He disappeared for a while and that was great because when he came back it felt fresh and new and tried new things. Not to criticise PFT but it would be nice to see him throw in a new character.
  6. Wow I didn't realise people didn't like the Nancy character. I think it is hilarious. I also loved Lauren Lapkus characters as well. I'm pretty much game for any character and I like to see them become more fleshed out as the episode goes along, such as fleshing out Nancy a bit more because I think she didn't do well last month with Adomian's meh performance. Please have on more female characters! My knowledge of female comedians is very small and I would love to learn about more great talent, such as Lauren Lapkus or Lennon Parham or Jessica St. Clair. Speaking of characters, while it's great to have a Paul F Tompkins or a James Adomian, I am kind of done with them for a while. Actually this is more towards PFT, who is great and I love him, but I do find his characters have gotten a little boring after a while. I get the schtick of Andrew Lloyd Weber or Garry Marshall after the 10th appearance. It's nice to hear something new, say Mike the janitor. Save the well known impressions for big events or maybe bring them out once or twice a year.
  7. One of my favourite episodes of Improv4humans is the gun episode. I thought it was very topical and a good discussion. Personally I thought that the edit of nigger was actually distracting more than the word itself. Kind of ruined the flow for me. As for improvements, I dunno. After 62 episodes you've really gotten into a good grove and a formula that works. Changing up where you get stories from every few months has really helped. One thing that would be interesting would be to try a long form (like 30 minutes) improv. Most of the scenes on this show are fairly short and it would interesting to hear a much longer one. I dunno how feasible that is but it would be interesting to hear.
  8. I agree with 9/10 of the choices although I would have different ordering but the one I do not get is Farts and Procreation 2. I just didn't think it was that good and did not hold a candle to Farts and Procreation 1. I was really surprised to hear it at number 2. I don't think it was top ten material but oh well.
  9. I fully support Marissa Wompler making a podcast, however it would have to be fairly infrequent, say once a month, to preserve the comedy gold. I actually had to rewind this episode a whole bunch to pick up on all the great things like Marissa calling Seth her dad. Brilliant improv guys.
  10. Those photos show a group of very sexy men. Also is PFT going grey? He looks like a distinguished man in that jacket.
  11. I am so very excited for this. Just looking at who is on it makes me happy. Thank you for this special Christmas treat.
  12. Kulap calling Scott honey throughout the entire episode me laugh. It sounds so out of character.
  13. I like how Katt Williams is going all Jesus on people while preaching how much pussy he gets. I'm pretty sure the Bible says that you shouldn't be doing that.
  14. Marisa Wompler is my favourite CBB character. Hands down. You need to have St. Clair back with Lennon soon.
  15. Eric is so bad he transcends to good. He just doesn't get it no matter how hard Matt tries. It's just so pathetic that it becomes hilarious. Keep having Eric and his terrible interview skills come back.

    Episode 186 β€” New York Mainstays

    The catch phrase was brilliant. PFTs laugh also helped sold it. Then again, I love wordplay. Also, what the heck are people complaining about in regards to Jake Fogelnest. He totally played along. I'll never understand some people.
  17. I've never had the opportunity to really speak to someone opposed to gay marriage, but I always want to ask them what they think of Canada. We've had gay marriage now for over 7 years and pretty much no one cares any more. I'd be infinitely curious to see what they say about that.
  18. Matt, you have at least one mathematician who listens to this podcast.
  19. I totally agree with you in some respects. As I said previously, I never got Tim's comedy until I saw it live. Then I finally got it. I think his thing needs to be seen rather then heard so I always find him a terrible guest on an audio medium.
  20. I never got Heidecker until I saw him on the Comedy Bang Bang tour. Then I got it. I am excited for this episode. I also adore Lauren Lapkus.
  21. When I saw that Gillian was on I was like 'yeah!!!' then I wondered how they would address its recent delay. Boy was my wondering immediately answered. Looking at those pictures, it always freaks me out about how short Gillian Jacobs is. Damn television using forced perspective. Also in the final picture, is she stoned? Can we please have more Lauren Lapkus, she is delightfully funny.
  22. 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. Farmer's market questions: why do you buy organic food? what is your favourite recipe?
  23. 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.

    Episode 46 β€” Barb Wire

    The attempt to kill a character with a forklift is forever immortalised by MST3K. Also watching Jason on NTSF:SD:SVU:: made me realise that his voice does not match his appearance. It just adds to the hilarity.
  25. Marissa Wompler is probably my favourite recurring character. I think I need to go relisten to all the old ones again. Also, love the new site!
