So far, 2014 could not be much better for comedian Chris Gethard. His first album, My Comedy Album, will be released in April, and a few weeks ago he was selected to do one of
Comedy Central's half-hour specials this year. On top of that, he fulfilled the dream of every cable access show producer when Comedy Central ordered a pilot
episode of The Chris Gethard Show. The live, call-in show, which has aired in New York City
since 2011, features loveable underdog Gethard and
his crew of weirdos (the Human Fish, for instance). Special guest have included Zach Galifianakis, Amy Poehler, and Jack
McBrayer, as they tackle a predetermined theme each show. Past episodes have
centered around Gethard getting his ass kicked by a kickboxer, critiquing phone
calls to the show as they are received, and the aforementioned Galifianakis giving haircuts to studio audience members.
As he waits to find out the fate of his show, Gethard will be at Acme Comedy Co. for five nights. City Pages caught up with him to discuss the pilot filming and what's next.More »
