Overall Rating: Good

Comedy Bang! Bang! is a weekly podcast hosted by Scott Aukerman, one of the creators of the Earwolf podcast network. The show is part interview format, part improvisational sketch comedy show.

The Good

Scott Aukerman can be considered a veteran of podcasting, consistently delivering his highly creative, weekly madcap podcast Comedy Bang! Bang!. This is the theater of the mind, a showcase for great entertainers playing ridiculous characters in implausible situations. It’s one of the better ways to waste your time.

The Bad

Occasionally there will be a guest on Comedy Bang! Bang! who doesn’t seem to get what’s going on. Or maybe they’re just not on board with playing pretend. It doesn’t happen often. But, when it does, it drags the show down. You feel embarrassed for the show and the guest.

The Ugly

Some may stumble upon this podcast thinking it’s something it isn’t. The show features some big celebrities, including comedians, actors and musicians. Newcomers might think they’re going to hear an interview-style podcast. That’s not what this is. Comedy Bang! Bang! is an absurdest, improvisational playground, which is a great thing, as long as that’s what you’re in the mood for.
