Scott Aukerman from Comedy Bang! Bang!

I’m a big fan of “Comedy Bang! Bang!” and was happy to chat with Scott about a kinder, gentler surrealist talk show, comedians being funny without doing “bits,”  and the force of nature that is Reggie Watts.   Next time I’ll have to remember to ask him how he manages to balance work and family.

 

Rory Scovel from TBS’s Ground Floor

Rory called in to talk about his work on “Ground Floor” and also wanted to discuss his cool new vinyl-only comedy album, recorded live at Jack White’s studio.

 

 

Joe Lo Truglio

Joe Lo Truglio has been creating unique and memorable characters for more than 20 years.  His latest is as Detective Charles Boyle on Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” We talked about working with a great ensemble cast, the secret weapon of the show, and my suggestion for the next great guest star  (SPOILER ALERT:  A member of “Stella” that’s not Michael or Michael).

 

Michael Ian Black

Ever since I first saw him on “The State” in the mid-90s, Michael Ian Black has been one of my favorite comedy performers.  We discussed his work in “Stella” and his new show on TBS, “Trust Me, I’m a Game Show Host.”   Winners receive $240 worth of pudding.
