Meryl Streep and Hillary Clinton snap photos with Meryl’s iPhone at the Kennedy Center State Dinner, Saturday December 1st in Washington D.C
hey guys remember when the american soccer team was out of the world cup and the new york post ran this cover
I have never, ever, ever, ever
met someone I believe in
as little as you.
INTERVIEWER: When you were working on Comedy Bang! Bang!, what didn’t translate well between the podcast and the show?
SCOTT AUKERMAN: The big problem in translating is that we had to translate the language. People may not know that we record the podcast in Japanese, translate it to English and then actors play us on the podcast. I’m not actually Scott Aukerman, I’m the actor who plays his voice on the podcast. Unfortunately, it’s cost prohibitive on a television show. There were other issues that came up, too. The podcast is an hour and the show is only half an hour. We considered taping for an hour and then speeding it up and just running the show in fast forward. People don’t balk at slow motion in a show, why not fast motion? We would be pioneers.
INTERVIEWER: In a recent article the New York Times called you a “curator of comedy.” Do you feel like that’s an apt title?
SCOTT AUKERMAN: I would prefer they call me a king of comedy because they made a lot of money on that tour. I mean, Bernie Mac, rest in peace, but I could slip in there now with Cedric [the Entertainer] and who else? Oh of course Steve Harvey. I would like to consider myself the new slightly paler Steve Harvey. That’s what I wish the New York Times had called me, but you can’t control the media. You know that.
INTERVIEWER: Yes, yes I do. In that same article Zach Galifianakis called you “a den mother.” Is that more appropriate?
SCOTT AUKERMAN: I think he’s a very rude person. He knows I’m a man. I have proved to him that I am a man on more than one occasion. For him to call me a “mother” when he knows that is not true, is just rude. You know I don’t like him very much. He’s just not for me. I’m glad that there are some people who appreciate his look-at-what-I-grew-on-my-face thing, but he’s just not for me. (x)
The world is becoming so immoral! At least… If it must be immoral, we should not be immoral alone!
