Comedy Bang! Bang!: Philip Traumatic Seymour Disorder
Oscar season is upon us so who better to join us than Oscar-nominated actor Philip Seymour Hoffman and fan favorite Nick Thune on this week’s bonus episode of Comedy Bang Bang! Philip gives us a preview of his upcoming Orson Welles project right before Scott’s nephew Todd interrupts the program. We then play a game of Fortunately, Unfortunately until a special guest graces us with his presence!
I liked this episode quite a lot! I could definitely feel that Adomian’s Philip Seymour Hoffman didn’t sound quite right, and that he’d push into other characters once in a while, but I sensed him making up for it quite well with his quick and immensely weird wit and willingness to be insane. I think that just adds to the further proof that he needs to have his own podcast. He’s got a directorial, but sporadic mind, and I’d be intrigued on what he could do with his own show. As for the character of Toby, I thought it was a simple, but ingenious idea that they played off pretty well. These weird, small characters that always feel like a wild card can often be scary, but what works about Toby is that it involves Scott. Scott got to join in and build off this weird story about his home life. With Nick Thune making a truly fun addition to all aspects of the episode, I couldn’t help but enjoy it highly, despite its weirdness. I think I’d replace that ideal with it being somewhat fresh. I especially felt so when they played Fortunately/Unfortunately. It was really great having another game in there other than Would You Rather. This episode reminded me of A Worthy Uhh…, with it having a strange, mishap-like air to it, but those involved being able to create something out of the left field and ridiculous. Philip Traumatic Seymour Disorder definitely is ridiculous, and reaches levels of weird that can easily make one cock their head out of curiosity. It’s just another reason why I love when Comedy Bang! Bang! goes a little crazy.
With the new occasional video format going on, I just really want to see video with Adomian, so I can see him standing up, screaming, etc. That must be a treat.
