Comedian Geoff Tate always found it a little odd that Marc needed to squash so many beefs with other comics because the two of them hit it off so well. Marc and Geoff explore the shared parental connection that helped them relate to each other and also gave birth to a lot of their comedy. Plus, Nick Kroll and John Mulaney stop by as they get ready to launch 'Oh, Hello' on Broadway. This episode is sponsored by South Park on Comedy Central, High Maintenance on HBO, Stamps.com; and Squarespace.
John Mulaney pays a visit to the garage while certain things in his life are in a state of flux. For one, the status of his TV show is up in the air and his next job is unknown. Marc talks to John about the balancing act between unexpected success, like writing for SNL and getting a sitcom produced by Lorne Michaels, and unpredictable failure. This episode is sponsored by The Frame, Hello Ladies: The Movie, Stamps.com and Prosper.
Marc welcomes John Mulaney, Janeane Garofalo, Morgan Murphy, Todd Barry, Greg Giraldo and Tom Shillue. Taped 4/29/10 at Comix comedy club in New York City.
