Earwolf SynopsisEdit

It’s finally here: The Two Year Anniversary Celebration of Comedy Bang Bang: The Podcast! There are big changes afoot in the CBB universe about which you will hear in this episode, but many things are staying exactly the same. You can still expect hilarious guests like Paul F. Tompkins, Reggie Watts, and Tig Notaro. Nothing is happening to our open door policy and the crazy guests it brings along like Truck Bastien, El Chupacabra, Clive Dundee, and the boys of The Enigma Force Five. And if anything, there will be even more improvisation, fun games, and impromptu musical numbers.


Paul F. Tompkins is Scott's sidekick for the full show in a rare non-best of episode appearance. This is the 2nd anniversary show. Paul mentions it is also his first wedding anniversary and he called in from his honeymoon to the first anniversary show. At 16:00 Reggie Watts improvises 4 songs to be voted on to be the new theme song.

There are 3 major announcements in this episode these are:

  1. This is the first episode under the show's new name, "Comedy Bang! Bang!"
  2. The pilot of the TV series is being made.
  3. The first edition of the "What's Up Hot Dog" Memorial Plugs Section.

Clive Dundee interrupts the proceedings to talk about writing the middle eight breaks for U2, he is soon interrupted by a plane break.

Plane BreakEdit

A Plane Break is taken (like that Liam Neeson movie) at 34:40. The Plane Break Theme jumps as it starts up, leading Scott to ask, "What happened to our plane break?", to which Reggie Watts replies, "It just plain broke."

Tig (Yeah?) Do You Have Some Announcements?Edit

Tig talks about her new podcast on the Earwolf network Professor Blastoff. Tig mentions she has stopped eating chickens, leading El Chupacabra into his Chicken Baby charcter. Paul F. Tompkins, Tig Notaro, Reggie Watts and El Chupacabra sing "Tig (Yeah?) do you have some announcements?/It's hot in this room".

Enigma Force Five KuatoEdit

Huell Howser talks about visiting the Large Hadron Collider and seeing infinite amounts of Huells in an infinite number of Californias. It is eventually revealed he has a Kuato like Jesse Ventura connected to his torso which has a Kuato like Paul F Tompkins connected to him. Paul F. Tompkins reveal he has a Huell Howser Kuato with a Yogi Bear Kuato attached to him. All of these Kuatos come together to kiss.
