Fred Armisen sits down with Marc for a surprisingly revealing chat, especially considering how Fred can completely disappear into the many characters he creates. They talk about Fred’s love of music, his desire to take comedy to uncomfortable places, the biggest perk of being on Saturday Night Live, and the one aspect of his life that always feels like chaos. This episode is sponsored by Chipotle, SimpliSafe, MeUndies and Warby Parker.
