Nerdist Podcast #157: CONNIE BRITTON

Connie Britton talks about transitioning from the sitcom world to shows you may have heard of like “Friday Night Lights” and “American Horror Story”. AND she’s a twin. PLUS she spent two years in the bureaucratic brambles of the African adoption system to get her son, Yobi. ALSO, she is truly hilarious. Now that I think about it, she may be perfect.

Science Explains Why Your Cat Keeps Knocking Stuff Over



  1. Martine says:

    In case you ever have nothing to do at all you should edit this podcast and make it end on Connies laugh in the end, that was perfect and hilarious.

  2. TeenZombie says:

    Connie Britton is down to get stoned….umm…where do I sign up to partake with her???? If she’s this awesome sober, she must be a riot high!

  3. Daniela says:

    The Ukelele story made me spill the water I was drinking, she’s SO funny, she should be illegal: beautiful, extremely talented and this funny, not fair.

  4. Dan says:

    Wow, I knew she was funny because I had seen her on some Late NIght shows, but man, not this funny! Who would have guessed? Hopefully she can land some comedy shows, or movies, and team up with Kristen Wiig… anyway, amazing interview!

  5. Elizabethbettybeth says:

    OK…I needed to pop in and tell you that you have at least one huge fan in Virginia….also, I think I found Steve Hardwick..[email protected]/

    and finally…if Chris wasn’t dating Chloe…I would absolutely think that Connie and Chris would make a really great couple. Hilarious riffing is a fantastic cornerstone of any relationship!! Maybe when the baby gets a little older..oh, and if everyone involved was single…

    This is one of the funniest ones I’ve heard yet. She is freakin hilarious and I loved her on American Horror Story. Listening to this has made me want to search out and watch everything she’s ever been in. I also absolutely LOVE how they talked about that horrible x-mas song!!! The line that stuck with me from that piece of crap is that jack-ass Bono singing “Tonight thank God’s its them instead of you.” Everytime I hear that I want to reach through the speaker and punch him in his smug self-satisfied rock star mouth!

  7. SlimCharles says:

    I am going to be an asshole, but I found her annoying in every TV show I saw her in. But this was one of the best episodes of the podcast ever! She is really nice and funny. Although she watches only sitcoms, which sounds like real torture, but to each his own, I guess 🙂
