    I enjoyed this episode from start to finish. I always enjoy when they talk about the comedic process and of course the Jerry Seinfield stuff was interesting too. Thanks again for the great episode Chris.

  2. Jeff says:

    Does anyone here know Deepak Chopra well enough to know the quote Tom Papa referenced? I neeeeeeed it :(

  3. Chris says:

    just heard the podcast while you guys talked about people getting offended by jokes. my own rule is that if it doesnt offend somone then it must not be funny

  4. Geoff says:

    Loved the Seinfeld stories

  5. Matt H. says:

    I actually thought the picture was of Willie Geist (from the Today Show and Way Too Early/Morning Joe)…which seemed like an odd guest for the Nerdist, but he does like to mix in some humor into his broadcasting. Either way, I’m excited to listen to it!

  6. Thiago Spegiorin says:

    Wow, So cool!

  7. Kari2171 says:

    Awww, Chris made a baseball reference. (BTW, 30% is a good batting average)

  8. clivodimars says:

    He loves it when you call him tom papa. Especially if you throw your hands in the air, as if you were saying “Im a true playa”.

  9. Andrew Hanwell says:

    Plus Tom has less disheveled hair.

  10. Stephen says:

    That picture of him made me go “Ooo, fat Joel McHale!” Not that he’s fat but he does have a fuller face.
