On today's episode, I talk to writer and musician Geoff Garlock.
Geoff has been playing music since high school, first with the
hardcore punk band Switchstance, and eventually with the seminal
screamo band Orchid, who in their five short years together
released ten albums and 7"es, mostly on Ebullition. After Orchid
broke up, most of the members started Panthers, who released four
albums on labels like Troubleman Unlimited and Dim Mak, but after
they broke up, Geoff began pursuing comedy. He wrote sketch and
taught at UCB from 2002 until the theater was bought by private
equity, and has written series for IFC, Adult Swim and numerous
other outlets. Most recently, Geoff co-founded and co-hosts the
sketch/improv podcast 108.9 The Hawk, which is easily one of the
best comedy shows out there!
