Presenting a new comedy podcast called Nice Things. We discuss and review ridiculous and expensive luxury items that you can't believe exist. My favorite recently was a handpainted greeting card that sells for $5000! My name is Austen Silver and I run the podcast with Blake Bowles, we are both Austin standup comics and we have weekly guests from the Austin comedy scene and beyond. Check us out, Nice Things on itunes, stitcher, google play, and buzzsprout if you listen, leave me a comment and tell me what you liked and didnt Thanks
I really like the episodes where Besser brings in people outside the UCB family. Todd Glass, recently Paul F. Tompkins It makes for interesting improv to have someone from a different comedy background, and it also follows a more traditional model of podcasting (to bring a guest into the realm of host and parameters of the show). I hope they continue to do shows like this, it really highlights the improvisors' adaptability with hilarious outcomes. I told Besser this in person when I met him in 2012 while touring with CBB. I suggested he should have Greg Proops on, because I thought it would be interesting to hear two old school comedy stoners to talk about improv from different perspectives, and share in the common thread that is podcast comedy. I know it's unlikely since Besser already unleashed his screed against the two types of improv confusion... but what do you think about having guests outside the improv community? would you listen to episodes that were more akin to a pre-existing UCB show like Snowpants?
John Basketball posted a topic in General PodcastingHi everyone on the earwolf forums. I produce a podcast called The Chomps The Cat Food Call In Show. The host is a cat, she takes calls from food, celebrities and friends and talks to them about whatever is bothering them. The show is improvised with up and coming comedians and improvisers (most recently we had on Mike O'Keefe who in the last year has opened for Tig Nataro, Micheal Ian Black, The Sklars and Bo Burnham) The calls range from a pulled pork sandwich starting a kickstarter for his band to Al Pacino and Matthew Mcconaughey celebrating the five year release of their movie Two For The Money. Everyone and everything is a character, the humor is beyond absurd, and its a lot fun. So check it out, thanks guys. Chomps on Itunes
