I've been very sick for a couple of days, and taking care of my very sick son for a couple days before that. It's been podcast time. Dan Harmon (creator of Community) and Jeff Davis ('suit-clad gadabout,' formerly of Whose Line Is It Anyway?) do a show called Harmontown -- it's a chance for the compulsive, depressive, 'self-destructive' Harmon to get some performative therapy, in the form of long unhinged rants and the occasional piece of surprisingly deft two-handed improv. Sometimes Harmon's girlfriend and comedienne/improvisor Erin McGathy joins in.
Every week they play Dungeons & Dragons with a DM named Spencer, whom they plucked from the crowd at the Nerdmelt Theater in LA. He is their Karl Pilkington.
They are on tour right now (yes, even Spencer), releasing each of twenty mostly-nightly shows as a free podcast the very next day. I've been listening to Harmontown for a while. At times it's brilliant, transcendent, heartrending not-quite-comedy of the kind Community fans know well, as when Harmon read a loooooong excerpt of his teenage journal onstage; I actually cried during that bit. At times it's two drunks fucking around onstage. The tour is going very, very well so far; they are nervous and feeling their way through things.
Please give them a listen.
