While it is impossible to replace Scott Aukerman, Paul F. Tompkins does a better job than any. On this episode he does the whole Paul-F-Tompkins-thing until his grandma’s get there to teach us a little bit about Paul’s upbringing. Paul also brings on his friend from the highly underrated (in this nerds opinion) show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Kaitlin Olson, who teaches us a bit about working with a depressed alcoholic version of the Gentleman Tompkins.

Todd Glass might be the most seriously funny person. And by that I mean even when he’s talking about his dog dying or asking for Twitter advice, it’s hilarious. Hannibal Buress drops some bon mots, and Sarah Silverman is fortunate enough to be in studio for the SECOND Comedy Bang Bang Celebrity Interview, this time with Prince.

In the first Doug Loves Movies/Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast cross-over event, Scott brings on his friends Doug Benson, Dana Gould, Paul F. Tompkins, Michael Ian Black, and of course the theme-song composer Reggie Watts. The show gets its first ever appearance of a Tony Award winner in Dame Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, and experiences what it’s like to do the same type of show they do in a studio in front of real live people.

I made some New Year’s resolutions this year:
1. Catch up with my old friend, Lil’ Gary, and see how his health is.
2. Do some reading, maybe Sci-Fi or Romance?
3. Listen to Patton Oswalt speak.
I was glad Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast was there to help me stay true! Don’t miss the much-talked-about short story by Brett Gelman, iBrain, and hear two of the smartest comedic minds (that would be Patton Oswalt and Lil’ Gary) wax philosophic.

Scott asked us all to vote, and we did. Only, not for him. Listen in on what fans decided were the most memorable moments of 2009 on Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast. Because nobody wants to be alone during the holidays, Scott brought in his good friends Huell Howser, Ice T, and Bobby Bottleservice to help him count ’em down.
If you are new to Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast, this is a great place to start!

If Santa asked ME what I wanted for Christmas, I’m sure Jon Hamm, Nick Kroll, James Adomian, and Paul F. Tompkins would be involved. Well, Scott answers this nerd’s Christmas dreams with a commercial for Masculinidad, a peek into Jesse “The Mind” Ventura’s new show, and an acting-off between John C. Reilly and Jon Hamm. Of course, a special episode wouldn’t be complete without a super-special guest, Weirdest Kulap Vilaysack!

Welcome to Jamrock, I mean Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast! Scott counts down the best songs of the year, and of the Christmas season, with his friends Paul F. Tompkins and Kyle Kinane. They wind down the year discussing their favorite Christmas customs, incense smells, door-to-door fliers, pizzas, and everything else the Holiday season brings. Don’t miss possibly the most famous guest, Ray Romano, when he stops by with some Holiday cheer!

Brendon Small is the genius behind the band Dethklok (who you might know better as Metalocalypse, but he would prefer that you didn’t). Aziz Ansari is the genius behind Raaaaaaaandy from Judd Apatow’s movie “Funny People.” Stan Lee is the genius behind Spiderman. And while Captain Moustache isn’t necessarily a genius, he does offer some funny stand-up!

The day after Thanksgiving, most people are too hung-over and full to do anything hilarious. This is not true for Michael Cera, James Adomian, Jimmy Pardo, Nick Kroll, and Paul F. Tompkins. Also, Harris is there. Learn about the history of Thanksgiving from the always insightful Huel Howser, hear what the hip Jersey kids are doing this Thanksgiving via Bobby Bottleservice, and experience the brainstorming of two great minds as Scott Aukerman and Ice T do some business planning.

You can’t get three guests better than Matt Walsh, Dave Holmes, and Howard Kremer. Unfortunately, for much of the time at least one of them is missing. Radio Disney sends over one of their most famous DJ’s, Lil’ Timmy, who brings up some tremendously upsetting information. Dave Holmes presents us with one of the most carefully thought-out and well crafted characters since the history of characters, and Matt Walsh lets us in on what aliens want to know about our world.

Fan favorite (well, at least this fan’s favorite) Ben Schwartz makes his first appearance, and we’re lucky he and Chip Pope were there. You see, public television host Huell Howser came in James Adomian’s stead and boy did he have a lot of questions! Chip and Ben kept him informed, but confusion ensued when Chip left to get his friend R.O. Manse. Don’t miss the premiere of Do They Know It’s Christmas!

Theme-episodes aren’t Comedy Bang Bang’s forte, so why Scott wanted to have a Philly episode we’ll never understand. I mean, Paul F. Tompkins and Todd Glass I get, but (the great Dr.) Bill Cosby? And he’s become such a shill! Well, listen anyways, for Paul and Todd at least.

CYBER-THUG TAKEOVER! The Thuggy one brings in his very best and thuggiest friend Miles Archer who helps cohost this unspeakably terrible overtaking of the show we love so much. Don’t be too worried, as show favorite Bobby Bottleservice shows up with Jerry O’Connell from Carpoolers (Jerry Minor was in that….whatever happened to that guy?). You’ve been warned!

What do you say to your dog that you wish someone would say to you? I bet it isn’t as funny as Andy Richter’s answer! How would you serenade a porn star? I bet it isn’t as melodious as Sarah Silverman’s song! What would you ask Elvis Costello if you could ask him anything? I bet it isn’t as hard-hitting as Scott Aukerman’s questions!

Comedy has always been a young man’s game, which is perhaps why Neil Hamburger cannot get an audience to do anything but boo and hiss until his set ends. You’d think they’d enjoy his stuff, as so much of it is about Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears and the other people who keep this culture running. Maybe it’s because of his opening act, Mike O’Connell. I mean, he’s the type of guy who you keep your babies far away from, especially if they are Asian. Fortunately the somewhat likeable political analyst Anthony Rivera drops in who is “down for like whatewers.”

This episode features some of the best acting known to man. Nick Swardson from Comedy Central’s Reno 911 guest hosts, and Academy Award winner Gary Busey steps in for a chat (while James Adomian steps out). Don’t miss a peek into the actor’s process as Matt Walsh prepares for some of his upcoming projects, and if you pay close attention you’ll hear Paul F. Tompkins!
