The leaves are falling, there is a chill in the air, the kids are at school so it’s time to curl up with a brand new Comedy Bang Bang. Our guests are the always charming Jon Hamm, the hugely influential Nick Lowe, and Garry Marshall. Jon teases the next season of Mad Men, Nick plays some incredible tracks off his new album The Old Magic, and Garry Marshall does the whole Garry Marshall thing. You get an Autumn Rap, a laugh-filled Would You Rather, and an excellent round of plugs that will no doubt lead you to some sexy discoveries. So throw on a cardigan, grab a pumpkin spice latte, and relax to a perfect fall podcast. And hey, if that’s not enough for you, visit Earwolf.com for bonus interview content from Nick Lowe! Perfect for pumpkin carving and apple cider drinking!
While talking about John Carpenter, Jon Hamm mentions he directed The Thing. This leaves Garry Marshall exasperated, saying, "If you can't even think of the name then don't even bother. Hey, you know this director he put out Whosey Whatsey?" Garry Marshall talks about his plans to retire from making movies so he can become a Cryptozoologist and begin searching for the Loch Ness Monster. Garry asks why Scott calls Nick Lowe "Mr. Lowe" but calls him Garry and asks him to show more respect. Scott says, "Okay, Mr. Garry," to which Garry Marshall replies "Please, call me Garry, Mr. Garry was my father."
Would you rather always laugh to the tune of the M.A.S.H. theme song OR have Tony Danza appear as a devil or angel on each shoulder or every decision you make.
The game is interrupted to talk about the fact that Meridith Baxter-Berney is now known as Meredith Baxter until she made a sexy discovery.
Jon chooses the second scenario and Garry chooses the first scenario, Jon is declared the winner because Mr. Marshall chose uncorrectly.
