Earwolf Synopsis[]

While the death of Michael Jackson put a damper on the comedy community, Scott Aukerman bravely decided to do his show anyways, if nothing else than to put a smiling face on all the grievers and mourners out there. I’m pretty sure he wasn’t expecting a visit from the ghost of Michael Jackson himself. To round out the table (if that’s an expression) Scott has topical comedy genius Neil Hamburger and friend of Michael Jackson’s, R.O. Manse join in to voice their condolences. Dax Shepard co-hosts this beautiful tribute to a lost legend.


Scott introduces Dax, who compliments him on his radio voice. When they discuss Michael Jackson's death, Scott says, "A lot of people are saying R.I.P. Michael Jackson. I prefer to say B.I.H.: Burn in Hell."
