The popular improvised sketch podcast Superego hasn't released a new episode since the spring of 2013, but the group behind the show is finally bringing the show back.

Tompkins joining the group full-time as a regular member alongside Matt Gourley, Jeremy Carter, and Mark McConville.

Launched in 2006, Superego has attracted some of the biggest names in comedy, including Patton Oswalt, Jason Sudeikis, John Hodgman, and more. During the show's year-plus hiatus, [...]
If you're a fan of animation and the hit improvised podcast Superego, Nerdist is launching a new weekly series that will take classic Superego sketches and give them the animated visual accompaniment they so richly deserve.

Hard copies and digital downloads of the album will be available via the official website, Bandcamp, iTunes, and Amazon. I've had the chance to listen to some of the album, and it's really funny and full of good music too. [...]
Last week the AV Club asked, “Are we nearing comedy podcast overload?” To which the writer not surprisingly asserted we were. I both entirely agree and totally disagree.
