Over the past two years, Who Charted? has evolved into not only one of the most fun and entertaining shows on the Earwolf Network but one of the most fun and entertaining shows in the entire world of podcasting. The key to the show's success is the fast and funny chemistry between co-hosts Howard Kremer and Kulap Vilaysack and the way they smoothly integrate their guests into their show's weird world. In addition to his Earwolf show, Howard Kremer has his hand in a wide variety of projects, including writing for TV, doing stand-up, recording special one-off podcasts like Earwolf's Analyze Fish, and rapping. Kremer recently released [...]
Scott Aukerman and Jeff Ullrich's comedy company Earwolf has partnered with the Video Podcast Network to start releasing live video episodes of its most popular shows. Here's Comedy Bang Bang's first video podcast, which was recorded at the Sundance Film Festival last weekend, with guests Casey Wilson, Michaela Watkins, Lake Bell, and Paul Scheer (as sleazebag Hollywood promoter Scott Jeffries). A live Earwolf show (either Who Charted?, How Did This Get Made?, or Comedy Bang Bang) will stream every Thursday at 6PM PST on Earwolf's YouTube channel. Watching podcasts is more exciting than watching radio shows but less exciting than watching TV shows.

After ten years, Scott Aukerman announced via Twitter he's ending his influential Los Angeles standup show Comedy Bang! Bang! next month. Aukerman started the standup showcase under the name Comedy Death-Ray at M Bar in Hollywood in 2002 before moving it to the then-new Los Angeles branch of the UCB Theatre in 2005. The Tuesday night show has been a linchpin of the local standup scene since it began and helped define "alternative comedy" in an era in which that term actually meant something, giving an early boost to a whole generation of now-famous standups. The live show spawned a popular podcast and IFC TV series of the name [...]
If you like satellite radio, cheeky Twitter/Tumblr antics, and watching people yell at tweens, then you probably already know who Jake Fogelnest is. If you don’t like any of those things, but you do like podcasts, then you’re gonna wanna figure out who he is real fast because Jake Fogelnest has a brand new podcast debuting this week on the Earwolf network that’s ready to finally be the one thing your picky self actually likes.
I’m not used to describing new podcasts because most podcasts are generally pretty similar to each other (insert host’s name here chats with his/her friends about whatever's on their minds), but comedian/DJ/social media luminary [...]
