Join host Scott Aukerman ("Comedy Bang! Bang!" on IFC, "Mr. Show") for a weekly podcast that blends conversation and character work from today's funniest comedians. While Scott begins by traditionally interviewing the celebrities, the open-door policy means an assortment of eccentric oddballs can pop by at any moment to chat, compete in games, and engage in comic revelry. With all that, and regular bonus episodes, we bet your favorite part will still be the plugs!

This podcast is okay... but it needs more plugs. Sometimes i skip right to the plugs and don't even listen to the rest of the podcast.
First time, long time
This podcast just flat out can make my week since it’s inception as comedy death ray. Shop Talkerman ebbs and flows like the ocean with these weirdos who walk in to the studio like no other.
Hit or miss
Honestly, there’s episodes that make me laugh hysterically nonstop, and then there’s episodes where I go like 13 minutes between laughs without even cracking a smirk. I still always listen though, the good ones make it worth it
