"Take Me To Your Boy Band Leader" with Mike Phirman | Musician and Comedian

About This Episode

Listen to the sketch on YouTube here!:

Mike Phirman is a fantastic songwriter of comedy music for kids (not kids music, HUGE distinction. Seriously). I have been a fan of Mike’s since I heard “American Dinosaur”

and “Anything”

with his band “Hard ’n Phirm” with Chris Hardwick, and saw him perform live here in Portland a couple of years ago with my oldest daughter (her first concert and she actually liked Mike more than headliner Jonathan Coulton, but don’t tell him that in case he is ever on this show). One of the things I really like about Mike is that he is really genuinely nice and was just so pleasant to talk to. Also, I surprise him at the end of the conversation, but he was a really great sport about it! Just to be clear, I was actually really nervous doing this recording, because I am kind of a big fan. Also, we recorded two sketches! The second one will have to wait until the end of the season, but there is something to look forward to!

Make sure to check out Mike’s latest album, “The Very Last Songs I Will Ever Record (Part 1)” where you can get it on BandCamp for $5! ( http://music.mikephirman.com/album/the-very-last-songs-i-will-ever-record-part-1 ) you can also check out the amazing “Horses and Grasses” album he did with Chris Hardwick as “Hard ’n Phirm” ( https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/horses-and-grasses/id269730543 )

Do you like free money? I know you do, who doesn’t? How about a lot of free money? Look, I won my fantasy football league last year and yes, I’m using it to brag, but there is a much easier and less expensive way to make money… REVIEWS OF THIS PODCAST! And, not only am I planning on giving away money, we get to see who is actually the better fans… Apple or Google! How does all of this work? For the next week (that’s September 3rd to September 9th), for every review I get for this podcast on either Apple Podcasts or the Google Play store, I will add a dollar to a pot. At the end of the week, I will randomly pick a review from whichever side gets more reviews and send a gift card to that person for the amount of reviews that I get. Don’t fret, I’m planning on doing this multiple times and, if it is successful, I might just do it on a weekly basis! So share the links and let’s get some money flowing!

They descend from the heavens and awe us with their superior technology and bizarre mating habits, extraterrestrial beings (also known as aliens, but I want to make sure not to offend anyone, or thing, or in-between) will one day come and take their dominion over our planet. Sound bleak? It does now, because movies and media have all been doing a very good job of convincing us that aliens like to destroy buildings and do bizarre mating rituals. But in fact, if they were to really conquer the planet, aliens would target the one weapon that would finish us all… pop stars… then maybe do bizarre mating habits with them.

Well, I don’t know if they will be great improvisors, but I can tell you that I mentioned winning my fantasy football title last year, and I had to add the hashtag #FootclanTitle because it was because of my listening to Andy, Mike and Jason of “The Fantasy Footballers” ( https://www.thefantasyfootballers.com ) that helped me make the right decisions for my draft, keep an eye on the waiver wire and, most importantly, kept me up to date AND entertained! These guys are great, give phenomenal advice and someday I even hope to get them on the show! If you are at all interested in fantasy football, or want to understand what all this crazy fantasy football hype is, this is a great place to start! I’m obviously very excited about this season of Sketch Comedy Podcast Show and another chance to win the coveted “Pattenburg” trophy again!

Next week, in episode 32, I sit down with my friend Kara Cooper, a photographer that likes to take pictures of people with no clothes on and we discuss the decoration that I am going to be adding to my fantasy trophy. Hint: It does not involve pants.
