The Schmoes, Kristian Harloff and Mark Ellis, met me at the Comedy Store for a second straight year to have fun and talk about the Oscars. It’s the funnest way you’ll find to get ready for your Oscar party (home alone in your underwear with General Tso’s chicken sauce on your chest). This is such fun conversation that barely relates to the Oscars at all. And of course we got interrupted by Pauly again.

Jonas Larsen (the Senior Vice President of Talent and Specials for Comedy Central) met me for the final podcast from Skeptic Tank East headquarters 1. We talked about comedy specials. How they look and why, how they’re shot and why, pretty much I got to ask almost everything I’ve wanted to know about what goes into the process of making a special. I have no idea if it’ll be interesting to non-comedy fans or not. Hopefully it will be.
