Not only is one of the cornerstone’s of the original National Lampoon’s brand, The National Lampoon Radio Hour has officially relaunched today, there’s another bonkers fast paced, absurdist sketch comedy podcast, a truly hard thing to pull off in a space that so much relies on being not scripted.
The new National Lampoon Radio Hour gets to be steered by the likes of:
Cole Escola (Emmy-nominated At Home with Amy Sedaris, Difficult People)
Jo Firestone (Adult Swim, The Tonight Show)
Brett Davis (Andy Kaufman Comedy winner, Podcast For Laundry)
Alex English (The Rundown, Night Train)
Maeve Higgins (Maeve in America: Immigration IRL, 2 Dope Queens)
Aaron Jackson (UCB, The Opposition)
Rachel Pegram (The Week Of, Don’t Think Twice)
Lorelei Ramirez (Comedy Central: Up Next, Pervert Everything)
Meg Stalter (Vulture: Up-and-coming Comedian of the Week, The Meg Stalter Show)
Martin Urbano (Jimmy Kimmel, Comedy Central).
There are two episodes up now, exclusively on Spotify and they have every bit of that National Lampoon irreverence, but rebooted from a 2019/2020 perspective. Definitely, they go for territory SNL could never touch and it’s pretty damn fun for that reason.
So, go get into the National Lampoon Radio Hour on Spotify now.
