improv4humans w/ Matt Besser – improv comedy podcast on EARWOLF – new release every Thursday

I have a podcast that features improv comedy done a lot like Asssscat. I have a goal to make it the best comedy podcast in the universe. We can only do it with your help…


We’ll be doing a live improv4humans at UCB and in the RiotLA comedy festival…

RiotLA fest on Jan. 10 w/ Andy Daly, Laurne Lapkus, and Seth Morris.

We have a new i4h tshirt with a very sexy robot lady!

This one was Live from Bumbershoot and we got into a fight with a heckler
Here’s our third Best of I4H
Amy Poehler was on i4h recently.
Andy Daly returned to the show on this one.
And Matt Walsh debated John Gemberling on bestiality on this one.

Music by Bobby Matthews and Dragoon.

Listen to the Best of improv4humans Volume 1

We take suggestions off twitter, so follow me @mattbesser

Upright Citizens Brigade Comedy Improvisation Manual

Ladies and gentlemen, after seven years, Ian Roberts, Matt Walsh, (edited by Joe Wengert) and I have finally finished writing the Upright Citizens Brigade Comedy Improvisation Manual. If I know anything about improv it is in this book. This is now the text book for the UCB Training Center. We wrote it so that someone who has never seen an improv show nor taken a class could still learn to improvise by reading this book.
It’s only $25 and for now it is only available at our website ucbtheatre.com store.
If you read it and it works for you please help us spread the word, and give me some feedback if you have any questions. We’d rather you buy it off our site but it is also available on Amazon. If you do buy it on Amazon please give us a review. Thanks!

“Woo Pig Sooie: Comedy for Atheists” available for dowload

I recorded this one man show at the end of the Bush era, but unfortunately, I think all these issues still apply. Separation of church and state?! That doesn’t sound funny! Relax, even the Bible has funny stuff about masturbation.
Press the button to the right for atheist hilarity and maybe some insight into my rants on improv4humans->>>>>>>>
