As the festive break creaks to a halt, Talkhouse Film is (still!) revisiting some of its most read (or listened to) pieces of the year, including this one. Happy new year! – N.D.
On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Film podcast, Tim and Eric’s Tim Heidecker sits down in the Samsung 837 studio for a chat with Chris Gethard from Broad City and The Chris Gethard Show. The two comedians discuss Heidecker’s new record, In Glendale, their unusual career paths, Andy Kaufman, the SNL theme music, and more – before chaos (and even greater hilarity) ensues as they invite wave after wave of audience members to join them in the studio.
