  • Thanks again for doing this for me, Keith. I also like how you managed to include a picture of Sam in this (older Sam, not boat girl).

  • Of all the moth­er­fuckers on the internet, I never thought it would be Scott Bromely making me cry. That was a truly incred­ible story, glad we finally got to hear the whole thing.

  • Amzing story. As fan of the comedy button and as a fan of human life in general, this pleased me. Also, who would’ve thought that Scott Bromley was a human being this whole time?

  • Damn Scott, never knew you went through all that. Thanks for sharing your story. Glad you’re still here to make us all laugh! 🙂

  • Been a fan of both of you for some time all the way from Brazil, thank you for sharing this wonderful story and editing it so well, amazing stuff.

  • such a great story. what became of the shitty doctor that busted Scott’s spleen? Also, amazing track list. I’m currently trying to track them all down now. Thanks from Australia.

  • Beau­tiful story, beau­ti­fully edited. Awesome job, Keith — this is one you should shop around to public radio. Have you consid­ered joining PRX?

  • I’m a massive fan of the Comedy Button. I decided to email the show with a ques­tion whilst I was in hospital for my third brain op (not knowing anythin about this story) and Scott person­ally directed to this podcast. Scott, you are truly inspi­ra­tional. And I know exactly what you mean about the catheter thing!

  • Scott i have to say i never thought you would be a source of inspi­ra­tion for me. I’ve been going through a rough time in my life lately and your advice at the end of your story really had an impact on me thank you for telling your story.
