Show: 
Bullseye

On this week's show, we entertain two wonderful (and entertaining) guests.

Jimmy Carr is one of the UK's most popular standup comics. Here in the US, he's hosted the game show Distraction on Comedy Central and appeared on Late Night and The Tonight Show. His new book, written with his long-time friend Lucy Greeves, is "Only Joking: What's So Funny About Making People Laugh?"

Then we talk with Amy Sedaris. She's a rabbit lover and taxidermied squirrel owner, as well as the author of "I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence." The book provides domestic advice of many types, ranging from recipes to costumes to how to make fake food out of felt.

Before he'd even released his first album, Chicago rapper Rhymefest won a Grammy award for co-writing the Kanye West hit "Jesus Walks." He's also a veteran of the battle rap circuit, having bested Eminem at the famous Skribble Jam in 1997.

His first LP, Blue Collar, was one of the most critically acclaimed hip-hop CDs of 2006. His upcoming release, "El Che," bears the name his grandfather gave him at birth.

In our interview, 'Fest talks about being a revolutionary, what it means to be a grown man in an industry full of people clinging to adolescence, how battle rapping feels, and more. In our bonus audio (bottom), he talks about what it's like to tour with legends like A Tribe Called Quest and the Wu-Tang Clan. He also reveals an impressive production and guest lineup on his upcoming record, including Ghostface Killah and DJ Premier.
