On today's show I talk to comedian Jake Fogelnest. Jake's career in entertainment started at the age of 14 when his public access show Squirt TV became a phenomenon, eventually making the leap to MTV. While Jake has regularly worked since then - doing things like writing for Best Week Ever and contributing jokes to SNL's Weekend Update - it's only recently that his career has truly bloomed: writing for places and shows like Funny or Die and Billy on the Street, as well as the new Hulu series Difficult People and the new Netflix series Wet Hot American Summer.
