Plop of The Week: Doug Loves Movies

The holiday week is no reason to skip over some quality comedy podcast listening time. Another member of the Splitsider comedy podcast crew and I took the opportunity to offer a bit of recodnition for the original "plopper" himself, Doug Benson. With two episode picks making the Splitsider "This Week In Comedy Podcasts" list, Benson receives a little bit of well-deserved internet love for his nonstop content factory. Here's my write-up for his fun recent New York City taping of Doug Loves Movies:

Michael Ian Black, Jason Mantzoukas, Dave Hill, Nikki Glaser The comedy podcast bounty often leads to missing out on some of the classics. (My 2012 low-grade shame.) Doug Loves Movies is one such show that shouldn’t be missed for too long, as it's one of the most consistently fun listens. It's always packed with obnoxious guests ready for the games and heavy riffing. And the special live DLM episodes, not recorded at Los Angeles’ UCB Theatre, often treat listeners with extended games and extended guest dicking around. Black and Hill waste no time getting into a “who’s book is better” argument, which, of course, turns into a stellar smart-ass-off. Mantzoukas stands out amongst the stand-ups with his extended shitting on Prometheus and the creation of his fake jerking-off-during-movies app. Mantzoukas also starts up a classic sweaty, sexy dolphin riff circle with his fellow guests. Benson sneaks in a quality emotional outburst about talking teddy bears. The games eventually get going leading to some semi-serious brainstorming and failed gamesmanship. Bad jokes, obnoxiousness, movie talk and overall inappropriateness abound in this particularly packed episode of Doug Loves Movies.

Along with the Benson double dip, the Splitsider crew picked the latest Superego and a few other interesting episodes:

How Did This Get Made? #40 "Judge Dredd" – Erica Oyama
Doug Loves Movies “Live from the Gramercy Theatre in New York City” – Michael Ian Black, Jason Mantzoukas, Dave Hill, Nikki Glaser
Superego Episode 3:14
Storyworthy - Blaine Capatch
The Benson Interruption # 17 "Live at the Del Close Marathon" - Matt Besser, Megan Beuringer, Matt Walsh, Rory Scovel

The Splitsider crew rolled out a few quality Honorable Mentions this week, including Fitzdog Radio (Jay Mohr), Guys With Feelings #114 (Lena Dunham), The Champs (Retta), The Long Shot #515 (Graham Elwood) and Two Charted? #21.
