    I do watch the show and it’s great! The comedians you have on are very funny but my favorite part of the show is when kumail and jonah are on stage. You guys are so funny also I hope to see more of emily on the show she’s awesome.

  23. Lauren says:

    Emily was thinking of the band “The Advantage” with the album “Elf-titled” a good one!

  24. New listener and love the show! You guys should check out Power Glove! Awesome metal band that covers video game music!

  25. Louie says:

    I would also like to recommend-
    Chipzel, a sweet chiptune artist based out of London, England. Check out one of her sets on YouTube. She’s one of the most energetic artists to watch, and she composes all her track on an old school Gameboy.
    And, there is a YouTuber by the username hiimrawn, who [use to] write original rap songs based on video games. I recommend his Megaman Rap. →

  26. Tyler says:

    Two things.
    1. Jonah’s Dillinger Four reference at the end almost made me do a legit spit take at my desk.
    2. BioSilkkThaShocker
