Maybe you're making a joke I don't get, but . . . that's definitely their dad on the show?

No, it's Bob Ball. They've name-checked him on the show lots of times as the guy who does their intro. Unless I'm missing a joke?

ETA: Er, to be clear, there may be some pronoun confusion here. When teg says "I don't think that's him on the show", I'm pretty sure she means "I don't think that's Clint doing the intro on the MBMBaM show", not "I don't think that's Bob Ball on the TV show." That was how I took it, anyway, but maybe I'm the mistaken one. In any case, yeah, that's definitely Clint on that preview clip.

Bob Ball recorded the intro for the podcast. Clint McElroy often says it at live shows and is saying it in the trailers for the Seeso show.

Yeah, I thought Teg was saying "I don't think that's [their dad] on the [TV] show," which made no sense.

The latest Adventure Zone and Car Boys have both been fucking magical.

I should not have blazed through the Adventure Zone the way I did... Now I have to wait for new episodes like the rest of you.

It's torture.

I've just started Eleventh Hour and I can see the dreadful point where the archive ends and the wait begins approaching with dreadful speed and horrible intent.

A Whole Lemon, from the most recent MBMBaM (#341: An Erotic Balloon Puzzle) had me and both of my brothers laughing so hard we stopped breathing.

I am very thankful for the Jbear post that got me to look into the greater McElroy brothers media empire.

They're streaming a mbmbam episode and doing a q&a on facebook.com/seesotv in half an hour.

Thanks for the heads up! They just streamed an episode of the Seeso show, and now I'm sadder than ever that I won't be able to watch it. The goofs were savage; it just seemed edited at a breakneck laugh pace, barely giving me time to breathe I was laughing so hard. Which is particularly impressive given how much of it involved spiders, which are... not my favourite thing.

Yeah, that was quickly paced. You could tell that they were trying some different stuff out to see how their comedy best fits with a TV show. I got a bit of a Portlandia vibe, but maybe just because the Mayor was really funny. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest!

Oh hey, Seeso put the first episode on Youtube.

ETA: BTW, the Facebook page from that bit is 100% real.

You know, even having it spoiled for me, Taako buying the Sword of Doom ranks only barely behind the first appearance of Garyl as being the Adventure Zone moment that made me laugh hardest.

I actually just listened to that episode while shoveling a few days ago, and I realized what was going to happen mere moments before it did, and it was magical.

The worst part about listening to MBMBam in reverse order is when one of the McElroys mentions a brand new segment, because then I'll know I'll never hear it again.

So long, Haunted Doll Watch. I'll miss you. I love you.

The weirdest thing is Drew Davinport gradually levelling down.

Man, I stopped listening to MBMBaM a long time ago (after listening for years), but the TV show they put together is just excellent. I feel like the format suits them perfectly, and their awkwardness on camera just makes the goofs land harder. I sure wish I could watch the other episodes! Oh well, maybe if I'm ever in the US.
