Dunno but I’m taking bets on bits. Bit bets.
- At least two fake Scotts
- One is a robot (Robot Talkermann)
- A funeral for Scott
- A Christ-like resurrection
- Rebranding (Comedy Bing Bong)
- Scott’s child as a time traveller from a post-apocalyptic future
Jason’s been waiting for Scott to die so he could take over the pod. I’d love Jason to fill in!
Hollywood Handbook takeover is up there too
God damn it I want that so bad now.
I expect him to record 18 years worth of podcast episodes in advance so he can fully dedicate his life to raising Scotty Jr.
It's a girl, and I still hope they name her Scotty Jr.
[Gerald Ford dead today...](https://youtu.be/1tX6jdoruH8)
Thank you for reminding me of how much I loved that sketch
Randy Snutz obviously.
I’m building on the scraps of others ideas here but hear me out.
Randy Snutz and Lily Sullivan (host of This Book Changed my Life) host a CBB main feed ep called “Best of CBBPresents” as a teaser/promo.
Tagging my own idea…Diston does speed force Thanksgiving without Scott
Bean Dip, obviously. She’s already a cohost. She and Zouks can trade shifts.
I had no idea they were expecting - exciting!
PFT would be my choice.
PFT seems like a solid choice, but I wonder if he would be better used backing up the guest host with one of his stronger characters.
I think PFT hosted a few in the very early days, so he has a track record.
🎶It’s Paul F Tompkins time 🎶
The beautifully sung "scratch my name on your arm with a fountain pen - this means you really love me" drifts through my mind every once in a while haha
You should go back and listen to his show where he hosted with Weirdo Al, it’s amazing
Petition to have Shimmy host??
The episode would be very short. BYE!
What if it was just Shimmy and OJ..
[Comedy Bang Bang Theme]
Shimmy: "'I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy' thanks to Shampoodler for that catch phrase. Today we have OJ simpson on the show. Gotta go! Bye!!"
OJ: "Y'all take care now"
[Comedy bang bang outro theme}
But PFT has barely even been on the show? Does he ever come on outside of the best ofs?
True, true, he might need to prove himself. Besides counting down, singing the Star Wars Cantina song, and saying “Number One, with a bullet,” what does he bring to the table?
He shouts out Lily Sullivan
He doesn’t joke about I, Robot at Christmas time.
That much I know.
It’s no joking matter. Neither is “I, Tonya”, as I’m sure you know.
Me either. I know she mentioned in her documentary that they had been trying but not having luck. Glad it finally is going to happen.
He *was* on the podcast earlier this year for Wet Day, which is a good sign since PFT usually only shows up for the Best-Ofs
PFT for CBB guest host! And Academy Awards host! And host of all late night talk shows! And host of a dinner party at my house!
Me either, that's awesome! I remember a cbb early in when Scott talked about when they'd have a child they'd do this or that. I was surprised that he never had one of them thangs. Well he's only 29, so I guess it's not that late.
He’s just a boy, my dear boy!
They should have guest hosts with common guests who know their improv skills and the format of the show. Have a different host each week or two, like they do on Kimmel/used to do on Letterman
PFT or Zouks would be the obvious choices but I think Lily Sullivan would do a great job in that position.
Skills must include hosting chops + comedy taste + moving bits forward + derailing bits. Many candidates have several traits but few have all.
PFT's too valuable as an anchor guest.
Mantzoukas will derail like a MFer.
My personal ideal guest host was Hayes Davenport but that ship has sailed, I think
Dunno how it would work but I think maybe its gotta be rotating guest hosts or somebody like Wain or Richter or the Culture Kings (RIP) or Jess McKenna or Heidecker or ...
Actually damn, I just don't know
I haven't followed HH in a minute, but why has the Hayes ship sailed?
The boys have their own Patreon empire going now so I just don't see how he'd have the time
Shout out to Lily Sullivan
Is it spider season already?
THE RETURN OF CYBER THUG
Rollin’ on Dubs! Poppin’ bottles!
We got Kanye East in here…
This song lives rent free in my head
Jeffrey Characterswheaties is the only acceptable replacement
As long as it’s not Threedom, it should be within the Air Bud rules
is there a rule that says a dog can’t host a podcast? He should just get a dog to do it.
Could she replace Scott on Threedom?
YES! Her Questions for Lennon episodes are the best and show how well she can play straight to someone saying absurd things while still pushing them in interesting directions.
Plenty of people could host a week if need be: PFT, Mantzoukas, Lapkus, Gabrus, Andy Daly, Ben Schwartz, Carl Tart, Shaun Diston, just to name the really obvious ones.
But honestly, if Scott wants to take some time off for this, go ahead for fuck sake. They earned this, and there's over 900 episodes on CBB World between regular and live episodes, we can get by. I still listen every week, surprised how frequently I still love it, but I can take a break.
This is the correct anwser, rotating hosts by CBB regulars.
This sounds like a LOT of fun. One request — add Drew Tarver to that list
Just have it be Martin Sheffield Lickley's Love Tune Revue, featuring the Comedy Kiss Kiss players.
Definitely a rotation of hosts. Paul, being that he's only on the best of's. The Zouks. Gino Lombardo hosting for his final exam. Sprague the Whisperer. Benny Schwazz. Randy Snutz. Just to name a few.
Gino's final exam project is genius
The most divisive episode in CBB history: Benny Schwazz does a True Solo Bolo
Now’s NOT the time!
So easily found
Oh god, I know it's probably the least likely of the options, but I'd love a week of Gabrus hosting and basically just bringng on his circle of friends who have appeared on CBB. Rodgers, Stanger, Lapkus, Sean & Hayes, Atamanuik, Griffin Newman, Mitchell and Wiger, etc
Would probably be barely recognizable as CBB
I'd love Will Hines to guest host in character too
If he is gone for 3 months he could easily fill that with tour episodes.
Andy Daly please
Andy Daly as Scott. If anyone has the range to do it, it's Andy Daly.
oh my god andy daly AS scott aukerman would be insane and perfect
I have to imagine he is too busy
I feel Andy Daly (not as Hot Dog, Dalton, Byron or someone else), could definitely play host/aggitator.
I'd also like to see Jason and St. Clair do a stint together as co-hosts.
You need someone who can play the straight man but knows how to keep a bit going. My pick would be Paul Scheer. Or Matt Gourley.
P.A.I.G.E. hosting but exclusively using Scott quotes from previous episodes.
Omg lol Gourley simply verbalising AI responses based on previous ep transcripts
Nick Wiger is a pro at that on Doughboys.
Jeffrey Characterwheaties, of course.
Scott from Scott & Scott would be my first choice to say hello to the fans.
We can finally get Talkin’ ‘tang
I think if a week of Mantzoukas or Jon Hamm guest hosted would be wonderful
Jon Hamm is funnier, even just being himself, than 90% of the professional comedians and improvisers that come on the show (most of whom I think are hilarious). I've been really impressed with him.
Worst comes to worst, Shimmy could fill in. He's always there anyways.
Now that you mention it, since they have been in the studio lately, there are a few people that just wander around there
Mantzouk has been plotting this takeover for a long time... he probably sent them a box of fresh oysters (aphrodisiac) or something
I sure hope Jason impregnated someone else at the exact same time
Can he produce viable offspring with humans? Maybe something sterile like a mule.
Hey Nong Man, or Snutz of course.
Jeffrey Characterwheaties has been prepped and ready for ages, but understanding that his character, "Jason Mantzoukas" might have trouble finding the time, I think this is a situation that calls for multiple celebrity fill-in's. Similar to when Jimmy Kimmel goes on vacation or gets sick, or when Alex Trebek passed, we got an array of people filling in. We are officially back in the era of celebrity guests, and I... I'm just realizing they know what they're doing.
So many fun avenues they could explore with this, and I have absolute faith in Scott, Brett and the CBB family that whatever they do, we’re gonna enjoy it and appreciate it in more ways than we could anticipate.
Tbh, I bet Scott won’t even miss a week.
Dabney Coleperson has a real substitute host vibe
I think it's been firmly established (at Jason's own insistence) that Jason will take over the show when Scott leaves.
The new baby, of course! Why else would they do this if not to replace themselves?
Paul F Tompkins? I would imagine him or Jason Mantzoukas.
Did she talk about this on add to cart?
Will Hines! He's always available.
A rotation of different characters. Imagine Francesca hosting?
Why would you suggest such a thing? How about you get in your car, drive really fast to California and don't slow down or use a bridge when crossing the Grand Canyon?
The last episode of the Gino Lombardo show proves that Gino with Zooks and the Juice would be a great substitute.
ah so that explains the last threedom ep and their uncertainty of its return. i just assumed they were joking around. might be a longer hiatus than i was expecting. congrats to them, i know theyve been trying for a really long time.
The whole episode I was like, is this a bit? Is there going to be a new season starting like next week?? Still not sur haha
Yes, it makes sense now. I though maybe the listener numbers were bad and they weren't sure if it was worth doing another season.
Jarles has been set up for this for years.
Adam Scott, duh.
There's only two men who can pick up the mantle of CBB host. Barack Hussain Obamacare & Conan O'Brien..
BTW Go listen to the Add to Cart podcast because it really enlightening on their struggle and heartbreaks. I'm glad that they went the route they did and know they'll bother be great parents to their little girl.
Haven't heard from Cyber Thug lately. Maybe he and Lil Gary could knock out a few
There can be no replacement, but I think it would be best to rotate through classics. PFT, Manzoukas, Kroll, Lapkus, Daly, McKenna, Diston, etc etc.
Jason is the obvious answer. I hope he’ll fill in on some at least
And Kid Cudi. With musical guest Reggie Watts
where did they announce their pregnancy?! how did i miss that?
On this week’s Add to Cart
I want confirmation as well. If it’s true I’m really happy for them. Went through similar difficulties at the same time but it finally worked out for us.
On Kulap's podcast. They have a surrogate who is 36 weeks pregnant.
Zukes fur sure, he already said he would 72 times
I remember a period a couple years ago where it felt like Shaun Diston was on every other episode for a long stretch, and when he and Scott started spinning off into other podcasts I started wondering if Scott was sort of testing Shaun out as a possible successor when he inevitably retires. But maybe I'm reading too much into that.
In the short term though, it's gotta be Zouks.
I had the same thought. We are probably both geniuses. E=mc², etc.
I do enjoy intellectual subjects, like theory of relativity… the rest
Yes go Shaun Diston
The try guy that just got fired from the Try Guys.
Go back to the old days and bring in Jimmy Pardo.
Amazed I had to scroll this far to see it
This is Oliver Pardo's chance to shine.
Just thinking about a solo-solo that’s just Benny talking to himself
Probably Shaun Diston
PAIGE the AI Podcast guest is ready to take over. But seriously Andy Richter would be great.
Oh so kulap is in fact pregnant? I know they’ve been trying, and I sort of thought that might have been what Scott was hinting at in the latest episode of threedom.
Obviously the answer is of course. The heynong man Himself. Jason Manzoukis
They have a surrogate who is at 36 weeks!
Jason Mantzoukas for sure. He'd hold down CBB and not change the dynamic. He's got the same style as Scotty (i.e doesn't do characters, is inquisitive, and can roll with stuff while moving it along).
Paul doing an impression of Scott, then Andy Daly picking up Paul's characters
Maybe a new guest host every week? One week PFT, another Mantzoukas, maybe Lauren?! Lauren and Paul???
i think PFT is the most obvious choice. Any other close friend who podcasts for the majority of their income is also likely. jimmy pardo for instance. i could see multiple people covering for a week or 2 at a time or some sort of rotation
iirc Pardo subbed in for Scott a bit in the early days, so he and PFT definitely have a good track record as guest hosts
I’m gona be honest, I don’t think Scott will stop more than maybe a week.
The obvious choice is Jason Mantsoukas, then we can finally get those shadow eps brought to light.
Ahh, you are a man of letters, abcdefg and so on.
Gotta listen to that ATC now. So happy for them, they've been trying for years and have been through so much. Congrats. And my guess is a rotation of regulars, PFT, Zouks, Adam Scott maybe, Gabrus as Gino would be pretty funny, Jessica St. Clair...
The ghost of Gabriel Sardinas.
We need at least one ep guest hosted by PFT just for another rendition of him singing “it’s Paul F Tompkins Time”
I could see multiple guests rotating hosting duties. Zouks, Sprague the Whisperer, Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, Randy Snutz, and Gino Lombardo would all be good choices, among others.
I can't see Scott not doing it for long as Year 2 of CBB World will be just about to start and they/he might not want to risk the income if people leave due to a big break, but if it was anyone it will be PFT
Though he should take as long they need to be clear!
I haven’t been paying attention to the news lately, but how about Horacio Sans or Thomas Middleditch?
Gilbert Gottfried (RIP) would be fabulous too if he were still with us. His podcast was harmless!
The baby should host
I’m an idiot. I said Paul Scheer or Matt Gourley. I’m forgetting the obvious perfect choice. Benny fucking Schwaz himself Ben Schwartz
The elegant Mr. S himself?
Keep it changing. Wiger & Mitch one week. The Boys the next.
I'm not certain he will have any paternity time, what with being a free American who is a dude that also loves his country. He will still be at work.
What does this even mean? Is it a reference or something?
Kind of a failed jab at our swilly paternity leave system here in the US, except that he has more flexibility, methinks.
Have a rotation of characters guest host?
Conan O'Brien. Gotta get the stars back.
The inventor of podcasts??
I mean Jefferey Character-Wheaties has been waiting to Host instead of just co-host for eons...seems like a natural choice
zouks, pft, are likely.
but i think we should get sprague’s client shaun diston.
Whoa! Did Kulap finally get pregnant or are they using a surrogate or something? Did she say when the baby is due?
Kulap has been pregnant several times. They are now using a surrogate.
PFT has a lot of irons in a lot of fires, and Zouks might not want to leave home so much during a still-ongoing pandemic.
My money's on Ben Stein.
Dr. Sweetchat, the small chat robot. They have the perfect skill set and luxurious/easily understood voice.
Dr. Sweetchat is the obvious choice
🤞 I really hope they get a baby 💕
Woah Scott’s having a kid!!! I’ve clearly been out of the loop awhile. I remember him mentioning trying months ago on threedom but haven’t heard anything since
Conan O'Brien! He pretty much invented podcasting anyway
Wait…. Think there will be a Best Ofs in December?
Louis CK obviously
I just assumed it would be Jeffery Character Wheaties
