On today's show, we talk to Chris Gethard. Chris is a writer and
prformer based in New York City, who started with the UCB Theatre
over a decade ago and currently performs on their house improv team
The Stepfathers. UCB is also where he incubated The Chris
Gethard Show, a Best Show-like program which can be
found weekly on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network. On addition to
this, Chris has also penned a book of autobiographical tales
entitled A Bad Idea I'm About to Do and was recently
adopted by IFC as part of their Adopt-A-Comic program. A few weeks
ago, we sat down with Chris in the halls behind the UCB Chelsea
Theatre and debated singing to a girlfriend's mother, discussed the
lawlessness of West Orange and dwelled on our collective shame.
ALSO! Don’t forget the next Beginnings: Live at UCB East. It’s going to be incredible with Lizz Winstead (co-creator of The Daily Show and Air America Radio), David Rees (Get Your War On, How to Sharpen Pencils), and musical guest A.C. Newman (The New Pornographers)! Sept. 11th at 8pm!
