On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Podcast, writer-director Amanda Kramer pulls back the curtain on the comedy world by chatting with stand-up and actor Chris D’Elia, whose new Netflix special, No Pain, is now streaming. Kramer isn’t just a fan of D’Elia’s work, she’s also a friend of his and so is comfortable pushing him to dig deep on subjects such as the pros and cons of taking comedy seriously, how to take away hecklers’ power, people’s misperception of Chris as a “bro party guy,” whether or not you can truly “get in trouble” online, what happened that time he compared himself to Daniel Day-Lewis, and much, much more.
