Scharpling & Wurster

 

THE BEST OF THE BEST SHOW

NUM203

“Almost all of Wurster’s calls or occasional in-studio appearances were meticulously scripted and planned out, and eventually worked to build out this expansive universe of strangeness and disrepute centered around the fictional town of Newbridge. Considering that each did it while also maintaining thriving careers (Scharpling as a writer/producer on Monk; Wurster as one of indie rock’s most in-demand drummers) makes their efforts seem even more Herculean.” –Paste Magazine

“History doesn’t repeat itself, but it rhymes, and it’s no coincidence that the history of podcasting has mirrored the history of indie rock – aficionados such as Scharpling and Wurster toiled in relative obscurity, followed by a watershed moment that attracted epic inflows of imitators and carpetbaggers.” – Globe and Mail

"Scharpling & Wurster are keeping the fine art of two-person comedy alive. Some of the funniest stuff out there!" - Conan O’Brien

“Listen, I’m not going to sugar coat it; this is a 16 CD boxed set of phone calls. Almost everything about this is technologically redundant. However, I promise this is one of the funniest things you’ll ever own. Scharpling and Wurster are the greatest.” - John Oliver

“Scharpling & Wurster are like an old married couple. Except when they argue it's funny and not depressing. This collection includes hours of fake calls, fake outrage, and fake knowledge. The real part is that it's always funny." - Amy Poehler

“I love Scharpling & Wurster. Their comedy has brought me so much pleasure over the years. And now with this boxed set, you can either relive the magic or experience their classic comedy for the first time. All for the price of $2,500.” - Paul Rudd

“Scharpling & Wurster are purveyors of some of the most bizarre and brilliant comedy I’ve heard in ages. If you want your brain thoroughly melted, this  collection should do the trick nicely.” - “Weird Al” Yankovic

“These twisting, strange, impossibly funny dialogues describe a world as complete as any novel, and a style of comedy no one has ever done before, because no one else can.” - John Hodgman

“Scharpling & Wurster (not in that order) are top shelf comedic surgeons.” -  Zach Galifianakis

Culled from the vaults of WFMU—the world’s most acclaimed free-form radio station—comes more than 20 hours of mind-bending, hilarious phone calls between the renowned comedy duo of Tom Scharpling & Jon Wurster. From 2000 to 2013, their tremendous imaginations took over the WFMU airwaves every Tuesday night with bizarre tales from a fictional town called Newbridge, New Jersey, and the desperate denizens that inhabit it.

Included inside this definitive collection are 75 calls over 16 compact discs, edited by Scharpling & Wurster (more than 50 of them previously unreleased or unaired), a 108-page hardcover book with cover art by Joe Matt that features essays by Patton Oswalt, Julie Klausner, Damian Abraham (lead singer of F*cked Up), and Best Show associate producer Michael Lisk (aka A.P. Mike), a definitive interview with Scharpling & Wurster by Jake Fogelnest, notes on the evolution and inspiration behind each bit written by Scharpling & Wurster, a USB drive with all of the calls plus 4 hours of bonus material, a fold-out map of Newbridge, Philly Boy Roy & Timmy von Trimble Paper Dolls, postcards, and temporary tattoos with The Best Show catch-phrases.
