Weekly Comedy Podcast Highlight: Comedy Bang Bang’s “Blow Me Up, Tom!”
September 16th, 2013 by Matt
For some reason I put off listening to last week’s Comedy Bang Bang episode. I don’t know if I was subconsciously saving it or what, but I didn’t listen to it until Sunday afternoon at work. About 5 minutes in and this one was a no-brainer for the comedy podcast highlight for this week. I love Maria Bamford, who you might have seen recently as Debrie on the new season of Arrested Development, and James Adomian does some of the absolute best characters on Comedy Bang Bang, so I should’ve seen it coming. As soon as Adomian makes his intro as Tom Leykis, the show turns into a hilarious mess.
If the character-driven weirdness of Comedy Bang Bang isn’t the side of the programming you enjoy, you might want to skip this one. But if you’re into CBB’s brand of improv radio conversation, this’ll likely be one of your favorites too. It’s so amazing to watch sweet little Maria Bamford fielding overly sexual questions from “Tom Leykis.”
