Tom Scharpling's 'The Best Show' to return in November

Posted on

The Best Show

The Best Show, Tom Scharpling’s beloved long-running radio comedy program (and podcast), had its ostensible final show on home station WFMU last December, but the host never claimed that was the end of the show’s 13-plus year run. Rumors swirled about a live tour with cohort Jon Wurster (who voiced most of The Best Show‘s memorable characters), but Scharpling remained cagey. He still is, but he announced via a slew of tweets today—the 14th anniversary of The Best Show‘s rebirth on WFMU—that it’s coming back.

Just how it will all be back remains a mystery for the moment. But it’s coming back next month—”or thereabouts,” as the poster says. Philly Boy Roy lives.
