Dan Harmon Explains Why He Was Fired from Community (and Why He Was Rehired)

Dan Harmon created the NBC sitcom Community. It’s a show about seven misfits at a community college trying to get their lives together as they deal with their new friendships. The show’s offbeat humor and characters earned it a devoted following and helped Harmon rise to fame.
Harmon was fired from Community after its third season, but it wasn’t long before he was able to find a new job… as the showrunner for Community.

In the year that Community went on without him, he took his podcast on the road. Documentarian Neil Berkley produced a movie about the tour and Harmon’s impact on others. It’s called Harmontown.

Harmon will talk about his mindset going into the sixth season of Community, what he likes and dislikes about traditional sitcoms and why he will never again share a personal voicemail from Chevy Chase with a public audience.

You can catch the documentary Harmontown in select theaters and available on demand now.

Rob Corddry’s Golden Childhood

Rob Corddry has been a correspondent for The Daily Showand starred in a bunch of different movies, but more recently his face -- covered in clown make-up -- has been a fixture of Los Angeles billboards and bus stops. It’s because he created and stars in adult swim’s Children’s Hospital. It’s probably the silliest show to have ever won an Emmy.

Corddry also plays a doctor in the webseries Wedlock. In it, he attempts to help a couple played by Mark Duplass and Jennifer Lafleur who are desperate to start a romantic relationship, but have none of the chemistry necessary to make it happen.

Corddry will talk about growing up as the oldest sibling, what he worked out in therapy, and what it’s like being on-set with Michael Bay.

Wedlock is available through Vimeo on Demand. Children’s Hospital can be seen on Adult Swim .

Rob Corddry on "Back to Work"

| 0 comments



One of the most popular discussion topics here in the MaxFun universe is how to"Make Your Thing". And one of our favorite experts in this area (besides Jesse, of course) is
former MaxFunCon keynote speaker Merlin Mann. In addition to producing many influential articles and speeches on the subject of how to focus your time, energy and creativity, Mann also co-hosts a weekly podcast called "Back to Work". The show is a fun and engaging look at how to hone the skills and tools that you need to break through barriers and become more effective and productive.

Ordinarily, Merlin hosts the show with Dan Benjamin; but while Benjamin is away this week, Mann is sharing the microphone with writer and actor Rob Corddry. It's a terrific episode as Corddry discusses how he has employed many of the techniques that Mann advocates. The pair also chat about writing, fear, Lost, Louie and how Corddry used Getting Things Done to create his show Children's Hospital. Check it out.
