Andy Richter probably best known for being Conan's O'Brien's sidekick, buth he's been a comedian for almost 30 years. You've probably seen him in Madagascar, Arrested Development, or maybe you watched his Emmy nominated TV series: Andy Richter Controls the Universe.
Now, he sits down with Jesse to talk about his new SeeSo comedy special Andy Richter's Home for the Holidays

Emmy and Golden Globe award winner Jane Lynch is best known for her hilarious portrayal of Sue Sylvester on ABC’s Glee, and if you've seen a Christopher Guest movie, odds are her's was the funniest character - no small feat. Recently, she's teamed up with Kate Flannery and Tim Davis on A Swingin' Little Christmas, a big-bad era inspired Christmas album.
This week, she sits down with Jesse to talk about that album, her arms-length relationship with Christmas, and what it was like for her to come out as gay after comedians like Ellen DeGeneres and Rosie O'Donnell paved the way.
We were all there: yawning a little from already having watched "Planet Terror", but soon to be awakened by the intermission entertainment during Quentin Tarantino's "Grindhouse". There we were again: popcorn on shirt, dying of laughter during the first twenty minutes of Ben Stiller's "Tropic Thunder". Fake movie trailers. We couldn't get home fast enough to watch a slew of them on YouTube. Now they're coming to you.
Red Hour Digital, a recent branch of Stiller's own Red Hour Productions, has recently let the world know of The Fake Trailer Project, a twelve-part web series to be launched later this fall that will consist entirely of fake movie trailers. Its success seems nearly assured by Stiller's decision to recruit some top comedy talent for the project including Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant of "Reno 911!" and Amy Heckerling, director of "Clueless", "European Vacation", and "Fast Times at Ridgemont High".
There are two schools of thought in the fake-movie-trailer universe. In the first, you've got your re-cut trailers that mix clips from the actual production with new voice-overs and music to present the film as an upcoming release in an entirely different genre. Prime example below: "The Shining" re-packaged as a romantic comedy. In the second camp are fabricated story lines for non-existent films such as those in "Grindhouse" and "Tropic Thunder". No matter which you prefer, however, these pretend previews have made a name for themselves.

He talks about why he left that show, and why he rejoined Conan for The Tonight Show, and about what it was like to man a sinking ship after the staff of Tonight found out they were being pulled from the air.
