This Parody Of The “Serial” Podcast Is So Ridiculously On Point

“What’s a pay phone? What’s a Best Buy? What makes its buy the best?”

1. First of all, if you aren’t listening to the awesome true crime drama Serial, WHAT ARE YOU EVEN DOING WITH YOUR LIFE?

2. BUT for those of you who spend all week waiting for Thursday… comedians Will Stephen, Zach Cherry, and Paul Laudiero have a treat for you!

3. Will Stephen does a pretty dead-on impression of Sarah Koenig’s constant questioning of insignificant details:

“Adnan…made phone calls. He also received them… why? What makes a person receive a phone call?”

4. There are three “episodes” so far, and each one contains a parody of the opening Mail Chimp promo:

“You know I use Mail Chimp?”
“You do?”
“No, never heard of it.”

5. Here is the lastest episode… but unlike the real Serial, you don’t need to start from the beginning:

“Where was the pay phone? What’s a Best Buy?
What makes its buy the best?”

The impressive Sarah Koenig impression was performed by Will Stephen, and the parody is a collaboration between Will Stephen, Zach Cherry, and Paul Laudeiro. An earlier version of this post mistakenly credited only comedian Paul Laudeiro for the impression.
