||ExplicitAt Wits End – Episode 130 – The Last Muppet Show||Episode 30 is a grab bag of craziness! Amazingly enough the first scene about creating a Horse Centipede was the tamest of the bunch.

Funny Stuff From Funny Guys!
Okay... Two things. Yes, this is a format very similar to Improv for Humans, and, yes, I'm in some of these, but that doesn't stop them from being funny. Quick Wits is Utah's longest running improv troupe (started in 1994) and they still play every week. These podcsts are recorded right after their Saturday shows and are a blast. Suggestions form the audience or social media start conversations and that leads to improvsed scenes. Check them out! And if you're worried about the little "E" for "explicit", it's very light. Soiem words slip in from time to time, but nothing to crazy! Enjoy!
I like the fun, bizarre stories.
This podcast has some genuine laugh out loud moments. fun for people that love improv or just love crazy stories.
