Go Superego
February 4, 2010 5:42 PM   Subscribe

Go Superego is pretty funny. [Warning: bad words and adult concepts. Warning: no guarantee is made that you will personally find this funny. Warning: it's a podcast.]

Kinda sort of loosely associated with Comedy Death Ray radio [RSS/iTunes], I think, which is also an amusing internet thing.

Whoops! I forgot: This is fantastic.

So, basically, it's a comedian in need of work (in L.A.) approaching other comedians (in need of work) in L.A. to do a comedy podcast? The premise is hilarious.

Er, I dunno about a premise or overarching concept thingy. Basically it's just sketch comedy, podcast-stylee, I think. (I stumbled on the podcast after a recommendation on the Comedy Death Ray Radio show, I think it was, started literally laughing out loud at the first few episodes I listened to, found the site and judged it pretty neat in and of itself, and so, here.)

A recommendation? More like "An Advertisement" for a spin-off. Go Pepsi!

Did you really just equate out of work comedians with Pepsi? Did superego kill you puppy?

I can't view this yet, but I shall soon. The thing about comedy death Ray is though, I want them to be funny but the host is always fuzting out loud with technical details live. This drives me crazy and i have to turn it off. When they're on a roll it's grand but then he'll start bitching at his intern about something not working right, on a NOTLIVE PRERECORDED SHOW WHICH IS POSSIBLE TO EDIT and *click*

get it together podcasters.

I can't listen to streaming audio at work, so I prefer to batch-download podcasts and listen to them in MP3 format. Streaming-only in Quicktime is pretty much the RealPlayer of our times.

Comedy Death Ray is streamed live and until recently was broadcast live over the FM band.

Same here.

Maybe for the best, though - apparently these not-yet-famous comedians have been hyped by others and are, in turn, not worthy of our time.

Since we're talking podcasts, I might also suggest Kevin Pollak's Chat Show, which is also on iTunes in both video and audio-only versions (useful if you mainly listen while driving). I would also suggest fast-forwarding his show to the moment when his guest(s) actually appear, usually about 10 minutes in.

Pollak recently hosted an entertaining two hours with Billy West & John DiMaggio of Futurama fame, his show with Eddie Izzard was great, and his shows with Jason Reitman and Christopher McQuarrie were good for some insider film-maker stuff. Even his show with Dave Coulier (who I've never thought was funny) was funny!

It's on iTunes. Bad as the iTunes app sucks, it's good for podcasts.

Wait, there are comedians who don't need work?

Before you argue, remember that Jay Leno is not a comedian anymore.
