Okay, then, here’s a heads-up for what’s coming up on the Nerdist Podcast Network this week, and it includes a special JUST FOR YOU:
You know how Chris Hardwick’s Comedy Central special and album Funcomfortable debuted Saturday night? We’ll have a bonus just for you, the Nerdist Podcast subscriber and listener: the uncensored audio from the show will be released for one week and one week only as an episode of the Nerdist Podcast. You like nice things, right? So subscribe already. And remember, you’ll also be able to buy a deluxe version with more content and a bonus Q&A, too.
Also on the Nerdist Podcast this week will be Rob Reiner, in advance of his new movie Being Charlie. There’s talk about comedy inspirations from Rob’s dad (of course) and Mel Brooks, to the Smothers Brothers, Norman Lear, and Garry Shandling, and talk about making This is Spinal Tap, The Princess Bride, A Few Good Men, When Harry Met Sally…. If you’re any kind of movie fan, you won’t want to miss it.
The Writers Panel will put Paul Scheer on display, and you know how he’s done practically everything from acting (The League, Fresh Off the Boat), sketch comedy (Human Giant), podcasting (How Did This Get Made?), producing, and writing. It should be a great conversation.
And if you wondered if The Jonah Keri Podcast will be covering sports outside the big 4, the answer comes this week when Jonah chats with members of the Colorado Mammoth, the pro lacrosse team. He also has a second episode with a guest he tells me is huge but hasn’t disclosed to me yet, so Friday should be… um, huge.
