On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Film Podcast, two of the funniest (and also most underappreciated) comedians around, Todd Barry and Chris Gethard, sit down for a conversation at Sonos’ flagship store at 101 Greene Street in New York City. The two multihyphenates talk about their myriad projects, including Barry’s newly published book Thank You for Coming to Hattiesburg, Gethard’s one-person show Career Suicide (which hits HBO later this month), the Webby Gethard just won for his podcast, but focus most of their conversation on the minutiae that is the very stuff of comics’ lives: clothing choices, frequent flyer miles, college gigs, life on the road.
