The Earwolf podcast network has been at the forefront of podcasting and comedy for over three years, so it’s with great pleasure that we can now welcome them to SoundCloud! Over the next months we’ll be showcasing their 20+ shows on Voices, but here are a few to get you started.
The Earwolf network was founded by Jeff Ullrich and Scott Aukerman (creator of “Between Two Ferns” with Zach Galifinakis) with the main focus as making original comedy content. Their shows range from the improv to the nerdy to the general conversational, with hosts such as Tig Notaro, Paul Scheer, Jeff Garlin, Matt Besser from Upright Citizens Brigade, Jake Fogelnest, Seth Godin and even Har Mar Superstar. Scott also has his own podcast, the network’s flagship show, Comedy Bang Bang, a podcast which features top comedians as guests each week, like Aziz Ansari, Paul F. Tompkins, Reggie Watts, Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera and many more. If you’re new to the show, check out this episode featuring the wonderful Sarah Silverman. Please excuse the title!
Two more shows to welcome you into the world of Earwolf are “By the Way, In conversation with Jeff Garlin” and “Improv for Humans“. Many people know Jeff Garlin from his years in the comedy biz, but most will recognise him for his role as Jeff in Curb Your Enthusiasm. His relatively new podcast is a straight up conversation with some of the best people in the entertainment industry, who he is friends with. Take a listen to the first show with Larry David below.
Improv4Humans is, on the other hand, as the name suggests, a fully improvised weekly show hosted by Matt Besser from the brilliant Upright Citizens Brigade. The UCB is an improvisational comedy and sketch group with a school and theatre based in both NYC and LA, founded by Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts, Matt Walsh and podcast host Matt Besser. Hear the latest episode below.
