It’s festival season so Mark and Matt debate what comedians can fill what rooms and who’d they’d like to see on the road. Reader feedback prompts the conversation about the departure of Jessica Williams and her impact on The Daily Show. Writer Scot Armstrong has a new movie out Search Party starring TJ Miller, Thomas Middleditch, Adam Pally, and JB Smoove. Armstrong joins us to discuss what it was like coming up in Improv world as he learned from the late, great, Del Close. He’s written on some of the best modern comedy films like Old School, Road Trip, The Hangover 2, and School For Scoundrels and how he met director Todd Phillips. After our interview with Scot, we play a game of Overrated/Underrated in which Mark gets the chance to talk about Ohio again.
