We talked to actor, writer, comedian, creator Michael Ian Black (@MichaelIanBlack). You know him from “The State,” “Stella,” “Ed,” “Michael and Michael Have Issues,” and Wet Hot American Summer. countless movies. He was also a part of Joshua Malina’s web series “Backwash” with whom he started the YouTube channel #SadSadConversation. We talk about how SadSadConversation came about as well as how he prepared the material for his excellent new comedy album, Very Famous.
I talked to comedian Marc Maron, creator of the WTFpod, a consummate interviewer and a passionate funny man. This recording was done in late May of this year at the Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut. My intro isn’t perhaps my best but I thought I did pretty good in the actual interview.
Host Thomas Attila Lewis rehashes some recent interviews/developments: seeing Bill Burr in NYC and working on a video with him; doing stand up in Northampton, MA and Albany, NY; and upcoming interviews. The gem in this podcast is the 5 minute clip of Louis C.K. on location in New York City shooting scenes for FX’s “Louie”. It’s about 19 minutes into the podcast if you get sick of the lame banter.
