It doesn’t get better than this. The comedy is unbelievable but the fact that this pod introduces me to such awesome songwriters is a crazy awesome bonus that can’t be overlooked. Very thankful for this podcast!
Love the show
The master of improv entertaining us even during a pandemic! Making art, experimenting with new forms and concepts, and sending it out weekly for an audience. Amazing work!!
Best podcast in the universe
I wish Matt Besser was always in my kitchen wearing a bath robe, reading the newspaper, and smoking a joint, complaining. The guests are great too. Comedy this good shouldn’t be free.
