After an entire weekend at CrimeCon, I needed something to listen to other than true crime on my drive home from Las Vegas. Don’t get me wrong: the event and especially the conversations were truly awesome. But binge-listening to a number of crime-related podcasts for all of the interviews I had scheduled eventually landed me in a dark place.
Comedy to the rescue! And boy, did I stumble onto a great podcast. I typed in “comedy” in my Spotify app, and up came Comedy Bang Bang. It was just what I needed for the four-hour-plus drive home. (The “plus” was a result of hitting the usual LA traffic even in the early afternoon!)
But on the bright side, I got to listen to a superbly funny improv-type podcast that had me laughing hysterically most of the way.
The characters were hilarious. This was especially true of Italiano Jones, who reminded me of every ambulance-chasing lawyer with a commercial. Pastor Pasta in the “13th Anniversary”
episode was a blast, too!
If you’re a fan of SNL, this podcast is for you. Whether you need to get in the right frame of mind before dealing with that horrible boss on the way into work or in need of a few laughs before walking in the door to your screaming kids, Comedy Bang Bang is highly likely to give you the humor prescription you need.
