"Scenario: The Milkmen Remix"
To celebrate over 2,000 downloads of The Milkmen Improv Podcast, and the release of A Tribe Called Quest's Low End Theory album twenty-nine years ago today, we are proud to present to you "Scenario: The Milkmen Remix." Former Milkie, Timmy McLaughlin from Seasons 6, 7, and 8, spent some time as a club DJ after graduating in 2015. When we got talking on the podcast, I asked if we would be able to remix "Scenario" into a Milkmen Intro. He was super excited to team-up with us on this project, and this is the stellar end result!
Customer ReviewsSee All
I love this series. The Steven Allen podcast is so great. Hopefully one day you will be able to have will Scott. I love all the different energies that each podcast guest has. It makes each episode all the more enjoyable.
Just listened to the first episode and loved it! As an audience member it’s nice to hear the perspective of the of a milky! My eyes welled up when you all were talking about the Mockumentary show and the response of the audience.
Great to hear the behind the scenes
Being quarantined stinks, but it gives you the chance to listen to podcasts. The Milkmen is a great chance for students to spread their comedy wings and step off the deep end. It’s fun to get some behind the curtain insight into the group and the shows.
