Episode 185 — Cum Scanners

Recommended Posts

Every once in a while a bro might want to come hang out so who better to stop by than the Nerdist himself Chris Hardwick on today’s special mid-week episode of Comedy Bang Bang! Chris tells us about his upcoming Comedy Central special Mandroid, explains the meaning of dookie cookie, and answers the question as to why priests can’t marry. The always hilarious stand-up comedian JT McDowell drops by to hit the turf, showcase his Julia Child impression, and play a game of Would You Rather? that will make you say WTF!

Maybe it's just me, but, for me, I like having Comedy Bang Bang once a week.

 

But I like it even better having Comedy Bang Bang twice a week.

Maybe it's just me, but for ME, I think this is a comedy podcast that I really enjoy.

Well at least I have this after the loony liberals legalized jazz cigarettes, elected a woman homosexual in Wisconsin, redefined marriage to an abomination, and re-elected the Muslim Atheist B.H. Obamacare II.

Hilarious episode. JT explaining callbacks nearly made me spit out my coffee.

I thought the title was misleading, but nope. My mind has been blown once again, and not only is everything connected, but then is also connected to a graphic cum joke. I feel like I'm inside a cum matrix.

Fun show, but it's really weird to hear Chris not in a hosting role.

 

I'm terribly disappointed that we won't be hearing about President OBAMACARE for four more years (although I'd be a lot more disappointed if that were the case for a different reason).

I have to admit, I was never a huge fan of Hardwick, but he and Scott riffing back and forth absolutely delighted me on this, talking about the suit, the list of JTs (JT Fourmore is my favorite up and comer), and the Gangnam Style stuff. I could listen to those two talk to the CBB guests all day. I am going to start listening to Nerdist now I think!

I agree. I don't really mind Chris like some of my friends do, but I think he is generally sharper when he's riffing with people like Scott. Some of the podcasts on the nerdist network are really good though. I like the 8/16 bit game music cast a lot.

It seems like the characters based on LA-Entertainmentcentric characthers like the stand-up comic, the hollywood exec and even Daly's Mayor of Hollywood are significantly less funny than the vast majority of the others. I think I only come to the comment section to hate, but I don't post often so don't get mad Hot Soccer Mom, and please don't ever bring Paul Scheer back, oy.

my all-time favourite characters are andrew daly as a nurse, dov charney, and Ice-T is the best ever. Those are the ones that stick in my head. I also liked the "boner ghost", and his catchphrase "you have to open your mouth eventually.....I can wait all day".

So, just because Hardwick likes to mention he took Latin in highschool, the "m" in mandroid is kinda' gilding the lily, since the definition of "android" is something like "humanoid robot."

Interesting. I thought 'android' more generically meant robot, and thus 'mandroid' would be akin to 'cyborg'. So is 'droid' meant to be different from 'android' (and not just short for it), or is R2-D2 incorrectly called a 'droid'?

 

Also, Hardwick's special was really good.

[Andro], as a root, means "male," as in androgynous (andro "male" + gyn "female" + ous "adjective") or androgen, a masculinizing hormone. Android is just that root plus the suffix -oid, for "shaped like." Interestingly, the wikipedia page for "android" also mentions "gynoid," which is really where I think the technology ought to be focusing.

 

That same page says

The term "droid", coined by George Lucas for the original Star Wars film and now used widely within science fiction, originated as an abridgment of "android", but has been used by Lucas and others to mean any robot, including distinctly non-human form machines like R2-D2.

Andy Daly's mayor of Hollywood isn't significantly less funny than anything.

I literally did a spit take at the second Kulap bit.

And the Kulap impression that Scott did made me choke on my lunch... twice.

 

i couldn't consume my food or drink either
