"Chris Elliott: A Television Miracle"


Me & Ben Karlin on Current


Here's my second segment for the excellent Current TV. It's part of a larger pilot that may or may not end up being anything, we'll see. It's a video version of my interview with former Daily Show and Colbert Report Executive Producer Ben Karlin. Wow, that's a lot of Capital Letters. Enjoy!

Mike Birbiglia on "Sleepwalk with Me", interview on The Sound of Young America


Last time comedian Mike Birbiglia was on The Sound of Young America, he talked about developing the narratives in his work, and leaving behind the joke-joke-joke repetitions that are standard in standup comedy. He recently premiered his first theatrical performance, "Sleepwalk with Me," at the Bleeker Street Theater off-Broadway, to rave reviews. It chronicles his struggles with sleepwalking, and in a long-term romantic relationship.

Go ahead and skip past the awkward intro to this video and catch a great talent. Me and Intern Chris tried to book him last summer, but failed. Would still love to have him on the show sometime. Nice to know someone is building on Outkast's legacy.

Worth checking out: his "Hi, My Name is B.I.B." tape from last year.
