New comedy episode this week: Stephen Brophy as self-help guru Bill Weatherall.

From this week's radio program.

The comedy shows have been some of my favorite episodes, not necessarily the stand-up, but the comedian interviews.

The Zach Galifinakis show was great, and showed another side of him that you don't see very often. And the Paul F. Tompkins show made me an instant fan.

What I do remember of the stand-up I've heard on the show is, "your baby needs better time-management skills." That still makes me laugh.

This thread is more for the comedy bits and standup I podcast from time to time, which are produced for the show, rather than for the interviews with comics, which have their own threads.

Keep it up, TSOYA comedy segments.

Sometimes I am in the mood for a TSOYA podcast, but I don't have a full halfhour+ to spare. Having something that only takes 5-15 minutes is wonderful, and also, I love to laugh.

I see Matthew Lesko all the time around here. I've never seen him in a polka dot car like Morgan Murphy was talking about - as of that fifth season known as "the holiday season," Matthew Lesko was driving an xB with question marks all over it. And he's always in that damn suit. And come to think of it, I see him almost exclusively at Starbucks stores in the burbs.

Holy shit - I was trying so hard not to burst out laughing on the subway while listening to the Andy Kindler set on this week's show that tears were streaming down my face, which in the end was probably weirder than just laughing. The man is a genius.

For the most part, when TSoYA has sketches on the show, they don't quite click for me. I'm not sure why, I guess a lot of them either just seem like they need a visual component or I'm just not wired for that sort of audio comedy.

That said, holy crap I enjoyed El Pollo Loco. Just a large grin and severe giggles from that sketch. Keep it up, Elephant Larry.

Nice shout out to the Columbus public* libraries.

Interesting fact, the Columbus *Metropolitan Library system is one of, if not the best library system in the country. Possibly because of all the presidential genital residue.

"Our swing staters are Theresa Thorn..."

Aaawwwwwwww!

Ah man, I thought I was so clever for calling my Halloween show "Spooktacular". And I was. However, I'm lovin' this. Anything with Adlai Stevenson jokes is great.

Also, I where have I heard this Simon Rich recording before?

Pollos locos.

This is great.

The piece also appeared in print in the New Yorker.

I really loved feeding scraps of paper to Michael Dukakis, and the second skit was really clever. My lack of Spanishness detracted from my loving of the Elephant Larry skit, but I think I would love it if I understood it better.
