oh my goodness i’m listening to episode 6 of Comedy Bang! Bang! and it includes a call from PFT OUT OF CHARACTER talking about his last day on Best Week Ever, and then the Sklars treat their “Scarlett Johansson Pizza Hut” bit as a story and it’s WEEEEEIRD SO WEIRD OH MAN.
Demanding a Michael Cera and Harris Wittels + Armen Weitzman collabo. Something starring all three, written by all three, directed by Cera… or Wittels and Weitzman… or all 3. They should all just work together because that’d be Cooooooooooool.
Y’all can tsk and say you’re getting tired of Michael Cera but the dude is transcending that pigeon-holed state we all talked about for so long and is doing tight, weird shit. All the stuff he’s done with Jash as a director and actor (Gregory Go Boom and Brazzaville Teenager are fantastic and impressive) and his roles in things like Crystal Fairy where he plays an unsympathetic anti hero who barely becomes a hero, Magic Magic where he plays a psychological horror film weirdo, This is the End where he plays an absolute scum bag, his work with weird comedy shows like Children’s Hospital, Burning Love, Comedy Bang! Bang!, and soon David Cross’ dark comedy Hits- it’s adding up to a career worth watching once again. Dude’s done some cool stuff, and hopefully will continue to do cool stuff.
Lord I’m listening to old Comedy Bang Bang episodes and I’m getting distinct memories of walking around Union Square in SF or riding around in a school shuttle in the evening just listening to these… I’m also remembering I was bummed out generally at those times.
So thanks, Comedy Bang Bang, for making things suck less.
