This podcast is Narnia meets improv comedy meets Q&A radio talk show. The laughs are regular and out loud, the puns are as groan worthy as puns should be, and the whole thing is COMPLETELY IMPROVISED!!
You actually have no choice. Start listening. Now.
Hilarious improvisation by experienced comic actors. Arnie stumbled through a dimensional rift and found himself stranded in a fantasy world. Naturaly, he starts a a weekly podcast reporting back to Earth and interviewing wizards, dream climbers, incognito princes, etc. Seriously funny.
This is the first podcast I became immediately addicted to. Asap, Matt, and Arnie are the coolest people on and off podcast. If you like comedy, especially improv, this is the podcast to listen to. It's also super re-listenable.
As long as you know it's improvised, this show is absolutely hilarious. It encompasses everything I love about improv - but mainly, it's about a group of friends effing with each other and constantly just trying to validate things that have been thrown at them. They make fun of each other a lot and make fun of improv games. But the BEST part is how much Arnie (the host) breaks and laughs during the show. Sometimes you'll even hear some random loud laugh in the distant background (sound mixer?) Some people think it's "unprofessional" for actors to "break" on stage. But my FAVORITE part of improv is when the improvisers break on stage. And that's my favorite part of this podcast. I'm having fun because they're having fun.
Arnie told me to do it
Sometimes corny, mostly clever and often brillant !
I can't wait for each new episode from Foon! Usidore especially is a delight.
If you love improv fantasy world building, this podcast is for you. Arnie, Chunt, Usidore and the ever growing cast of characters never fail to make me laugh. Can it be overly crude at times? Yes. Do I care? No. I'm always eager to keep up on the happenings in Foon and learn more about the existence of other dimensions. If you're tired of those boring Earth based podcasts, 'Hello From the Magic Tavern' is sure to put you under it's spell.
If you like humor and fantasy this is literally the podcast for you. Enjoy!
This podcast is by far my favorite. About a man named arnie that fell through a dimensional portal behind a Burger King, he's joined by two co-hosts; Chunt, a talking shapeshifter badger and a powerful wizard named Usador. The three host this podcast inside a tavern with weekly guests that can be anything from a singing sword to a sassy flower to a homunculus made of poo. With witty banter, tiny horses with multiple buttholes, and spiced potatoes, this podcast is the true definition of perfection. Aww yeah baby!
This is very smart humor!
This show is amazing, and is totally real.It's definitely one of the best real things, to which I've ever listened.
Show was awesome for a long time. The second season is a big let down. Hoping they get good again someday. Once they are finished being super preachy. Oh well.
This podcast is one of only a handful I listen to. Clever, funny, and crass, this one is worth your time.
A good blend of fantasy and comedy, the skill of everyone involved is really impressive considering that majority of it is pure improv. The side story of the mystery man in space is super interesting and a good balance sense of humor wise (more dark and sarcastic). The show, including the mystery man and Craig (& Trisha I suppose) bits, do an excellent job of world building and keeping me in Foon throughout the durration of the episode, despite all the earth references. If you enjoy fantasy, D&D type worlds and improv, this is the podcast for you.Warning: lots of child death... so much child death...
About a year and a few months ago I stumbled upon this podcast through the space dimensions that make up the Internet and I have been listening with a faint 3G signal via my mobile cellular device ever since.These guys have comedy. I like their friendly banter and bickering.
Hands down, my favorite podcast out there! From the guests to the hosts to the mysterious man, this podcast is top notch fun!
The decor will be feline-themed. It is gleefully on-point.
When I first started listening to the podcast, I would have given it 5 out of 5. Really funny, really original, and very lovable characters. Lately, though... It seems like the entire podcast has been given over to two of the three main characters doing nothing but making 90s pop culture references. There used to be a lot more world-building, and a lot more novel content. And yes, there were a lot of pop-culture puns IN that world-building. But now they mostly forgo all of that storytelling and content to interrupt their guests to shout something like, "one time I met a troll who had 99 Red Balloons!" Nevertheless, the hosts and guests are genuinely funny people, the show has a great concept, and I highly reccomend listening to the podcast from the beginning. Hopefully, by the time you make it back to current episodes, the boys at the Vermillion Minotaur will have found their stride again.

This is hands-down my favorite podcast, and I wait very impatiently each week for the new episodes. It is hilarious, awesome stuff.
Of all the podcasts that I'm subscribed to, Magic Tavern is the one I look forward to listening to every week. Going for a walk, driving, work, what ever it is you're doing, Hello From the Magic Tavern is the perfect podcast for your day to day adventures against the dark lord!
Better then a platter of spiced potatoes. BOYS NIGHT
If you like fantasy stories, magical creatures, and/or hearing three good friends make silly jokes about buttholes, then this podcast is perfect for you. I just love it, and look forward to the new episodes every time.
I was looking for something to fill the time between my standard podcasts, and stumbled upon this. It quickly became my favorite. Just sad that I've caught up and have to wait for new episodes each week. Check out Offices & Bosses on Howl for some more hilarious Foon adventures (sounds like a fake plug, but seriously this whole universe is hysterical)!
Hello from the magic tavern has a wonderful dysfunctional flow. But all of a sudden boom, hit with someone who has vocal tone that blows their wizard prowess into the northeast. Definitely start from the beginning.
I never liked podcasts. They put me to sleep or felt like I was just listening to friends I didn't like argue about stuff I didn't care about. Then I found this podcast. Hoooo boy. It's funny, it's crude, it's ridiculous and they actually make me look forward to Monday mornings. Love it. Just listen to one episode and you'll be hooked.
Very funny improv comedy podcast set in a dungeons and dragons like fantasy world. Great new guests every episode, that add more background to Foon's history
Were this a scripted show, I'd give it four stars. However, as an improviser I know the beauty and imperfection of make-em-ups, and these folks get it right. They manage to capture the essence of improv, which ideally is seen live, and translate it to the recorded world, where many people expect to hear perfection. The whole point is that there is an effervescence and life that comes from risk (and "failure") that improv brings to stage with varying degrees of success. HFTMT brings it to this podcast, which has routinely made me look like a complete, snorting lunatic while I walk my dogs. Thanks, Arnie, Yusidore, and Chunt(ttttt) for helping me scare off my neighbors! I owe you a rainbow bowl!
This podcast gives me life and it genuinely makes me feel better on mondays. Also I feel bad about having written that email about usidore being the next to die..........anyway, this is a brilliant podcast with an equally brilliant and talented cast and I'm so excited to see what's next.
I've been listening for a few months now while I work (do art stuff) and I can get enough. Time flies by and each episode has you leaving wanting more.
This is by far the best podcast I've heard. Can't wait for more!
I was introduced to this podcast by one of the members of my local game group and fell in love with it immediately. I listen to the true, NOT FAKE, interviews conducted by Arnie, Chunt, and Usador definitely get me through the work day.
Favorite podcast of all time, no question. Take a listen.
I commute 2 hours a day and this has made my commute much less painful.
Not so long ago, I would have declared myself a die-hard fan of Hello From The Magic Tavern. But now....with this so-called "Season 2" and the gloom and doom inherent in the new setting, the humor just falls flat for me. I'm still listening, hoping that the trio will pick themselves up from this stumble and find the funny again, but current episodes find me more and more longing for the end of the "transmission" from Foon and the sarcastic negativity of the Mysterious Man, as what used to be an amusing framing device has become an echo of my assessment of "Season 2".
Very informative about trans dimensional travel and butt holes.
You hear me! 5 BUTTHOLES!
This is the best comedy podcast ever. There have been many episodes that I have listened to like 7 times. I am obsessed. I have forced many of friends to listen to these!! They are the best.
This is a podcast that is good. Please listen to it. Like, the whole thing. Not just the new...season? Are we doing seasons now?
But the "Yakkety Yak" joke pushed me over. Great job, Arnie! Five stars!
This podcast is one of the highlights of each week. Thanks for the joy you bring us during the difficult reign of the Dark Lord. Also, Arnie's "yakety yak" joke is the funniest thing I've ever heard.
My Dad, and I love the man, is basically Spock. I'm almost his complete opposite. We've bonded over exactly two things in life and one of them is this podcast. A little over a year ago (call back!) he helped me paint the nursery for my newborn son. It took double the amount of time it should have because we were laughing so much. It was dangerous to be on ladders at the same time as listening to this podcast. The hosts, the guests, the production quality - I just love everything about this show. Plus they read one of my stupid emails. Bravo Arnie! Bravo Usidore! Bravo Chunt!
Hilarious magical renaissance style semi-improv fun
I recently came across this podcast! It has made my life so much better. I listen to Hello From The Magic Tavern every chance I get. You should too!
This is what keeps me coming back to find new podcasts. Because maybe one day I will find another this good.
You keep asserting that it's all "pretend," but thou doth protest too much I fear.
