The irreverant and thorougly silly snack-riffic show, Mike and Tom Eat Snacks is now calling The Nerdist Network home. Last week's hershey kiss episode marked the first new show on the Chris Hardwick operated network. The show had been missing-in-action for over a month. No word yet on what the network shift might mean to the show. Suffice to say, the real question is how many new snacks are left for Michael Ian Black and Tom Cavanagh to argue about.

Everyone's favorite impolite comedian, newly christened snack authority and podcaster, Michael Ian Black released a stand-up album via Comedy Central Records yesterday. The album, Very Famous, is a companion piece to Black's recently aired Comedy Central special. You can grab the album via Amazon.com (CD or MP3 formats). Bonus point for the fittingly obnoxious title and album art.
You can also catch more Michael Ian Black comedy-ness via his weekly Mike & Tom Eat Snacks podcast.
Listen, commitment-phobe. If you break out in a cold sweat when you find your recently downloaded podcasts are all over an hour long, I have some suggestions. First and foremost, calm down. Maybe see a medical professional? Or, at the very least, start a Yahoo! Answers thread regarding your weird podcast-related anxiety issues. While you’re refreshing the thread, awaiting responses, check out these tidbits of aural delight.
One of the more inane (in the best possible way) comedy podcasts making the rounds is the we-kid-you-not snack oriented show, Mike & Tom Eat Snacks. The show is the comedic offspring of comedian Michael Ian Black and actor Tom Cavanagh. The twosome added a Tumblr Blog for their show. Now fans of the show can locate past episodes and submit questions and snack suggestions for future shows.
Each Mike & Tom Eat Snacks episode follows a simple formula. The two friends, Black and Cavanagh eat snacks, discuss snacks and argue a lot (not always about snacks). Michael Ian Black is his usually playfully obnoxious self with his buddy Tom Cavanagh sincerity serving as a perfect foil. Cavanagh gets in plenty of comedy, too. Of course it's dumb. But hey - it's dumb on purpose. That counts for something. The show is a great deadpan satire on the lameness of the friends-talking-about-nothing comedy podcast format. Yet, these guys are naturally charming and funny, making it a fun show to follow for non-satire reasons. Plus, they do a damn good job sucking you into intense conversations about snacks. A reminder to find humor in the little things.
