John Lee, along with his co-producer Vernon Chatman and their production/art collective PFFR, have created some of the weirdest and funniest television of the past decade. Wonder Showzen, a show that shoved absurdity, politics and social commentary into a nonsensical children’s show ran on MTV2 for two seasons and Xavier: Renegade Angel, a psychosexual spirit quest wrapped up in fast-paced absurdity and N64 graphics was an Adult Swim hit. Among other projects, John currently executive produces and directs Jon Glaser’s show Delocated. A few weeks ago we sat down with John at his house in Brooklyn to discuss paper videogames, Occupy Wall Street, Jim Jarmusch, Ewok dogs, being open to randomness, and Gordon Lish. Mark maybe gets a job! Both of us mutate into giggling fanboys! It's fun!
