For Christmas Day, Marc presents a look back at some holiday moments from the earliest years of WTF. First, hear Todd Glass and Marc talk about the perils of going home for the holidays. Then some highlights from the 2009 live WTF Christmas show with Sarah Silverman, Paul F. Tompkins, Jerry Minor, Eddie Pepitone and Jim Earl. Finally, a beautiful story of hope and humanity from the late Mike DeStefano, recorded around the holidays in 2010.
Todd Haynes has been messing with Marc’s mind for decades. Well, his films have. The writer-director sits down in the garage to go over it all, from his Barbie doll biopic about Karen Carpenter to his identity-bending Bob Dylan film to his latest love story, Carol. Plus, Marc gives Sarah Silverman a call to congratulate her on her SAG Award nomination. This episode is sponsored by Colony on USA Network, Warby Parker, Squarespace, and Todd Margaret on IFC.
The Bedwetter herself, Sarah Silverman, talks to Marc about the funny men in her past, the opportunities for her future, and the present state of her relationship with her parents. Plus, Marc wonders what he’s doing in Dallas, Texas.
Back at the UCB Theatre in Los Angeles, Marc brings out the big guns for a special holiday show. Sarah Silverman will serenade you, Paul F. Tompkins will laugh at you, and Jerry Minor will make you question your faith. Plus, Eddie Pepitone lays his vengeance upon thee and Jim Earl recites a special Christmas poem. Taped 12/18/09.
