Here's this week's episode of comedian Chris Gethard's nutty public access/web show The Chris Gethard Show with super special guest Amy Poehler joining the gang for the full hour in a show that involves them predicting strangers' futures because that's what public access TV is for.
Comedian Chris Gethard's public access show has a big-time movie star dropping by this week: Zach Galifianakis. Gethard announced on The Chris Gethard Show's blog that the show will be handing out free haircuts on-air this week, despite the fact that nobody on the show knows how to cut hair, and that Galifianakis will be cutting strangers' hair right alongside Gethard and the rest of the gang. The show airs tomorrow at 11pm eastern online or on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network. It's really impressive and a testament to the strength and inventiveness of The Chris Gethard Show that they were able to book one of the biggest movie [...]
Last week, comedian Chris Gethard told his fans that if they helped his public access program The Chris Gethard Show become the #1 video comedy podcast on iTunes, he'd host this week's show while doing algebra, listening to "Gangnam Style" on a loop, and being slapped in the face – all with an ice pack down his pants. Gethard's fans achieved that goal in a single day, causing him to up the ante. Gethard has now promised that if the show becomes the #1 overall video podcast, on top of all that other stuff, he'll do the show with his face painted (without looking at how his [...]
There's now hope for folks who are worried Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert's election coverage will be too serious. Comedian Chris Gethard will be hosting a live election special on his silly New York public access program The Chris Gethard Show, beginning at noon EST on November 6th. The special will be streamed online, in addition to airing on public access station MNN4. If the Gethard Show election coverage is a big hit, maybe CNN will bring in a Human Fish to analyze Electoral College maps in 2016.
Last month, Chris Gethard basically hitchhiked from LA to Bonnaroo, making friends and videos along the way. One stop was at Kentucky's Asbury University, where he decided to broadcast a full hour-long episode from the dorm room of some fans at the last minue. It was hastily put together but includes all the hallmarks of a good CGS: strangers calling in, threats of violence, Geth getting tied up with pink rope for much of the show, and a dice game that results in him then getting absolutely covered in Silly String. Who needs a studio?
The Chris Gethard Show has booked another famous comedy guest. Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler will be dropping by the show for this Wednesday's installment, which airs online and on New York public access via the Manhattan Neighborhood Network at 11pm Eastern. Poehler is the second big name guest in a row for comedian Chris Gethard's web/public access show, following an appearance by Zach Galifianakis last week that featured Galifianakis spending most of the episode cutting strangers' hairs live on air alongside Gethard. The Amy Poehler episode this week will involve Poehler and the panel predicting callers' futures. I can't think of anyone better suited [...]
"Put my show on at 2 in the morning. We'll be the cheapest show to produce. Some cable network: Put us on at 2 a.m. Give us almost no money. It'll still be more money than we get on public access. Let us take a chance on this idea that if we create this completely interactive show, that people really feel like is theirs, that it will click. It will click in the way that things on the Internet click. That's what I want to say to TV development people … 'You shouldn't be scared of this thing. What you should be scared of is the Internet killing your medium. [...]
Comedian Chris Gethard's delightful, zany public access show The Chris Gethard Show is about to lose its studio for two months. Beginning in December, the Manhattan Neighborhood Network's studio will be renovating, and The Gethard Show needs your help finding a new place to film for the duration. If you have a studio/warehouse/giant empty space to offer up or suggest, head on over to the Gethard Show forums and do so. If you end up letting the show use your space, I'm sure you can negotiate to keep The Human Fish out if that's the biggest fear you have about the whole arrangement.
As election season becomes election month, top contenders are focusing on tying up swing states and trying not to tank debates. Connor Ratliff, the official presidential candidate of The Chris Gethard Show, has other priorities: putting the finishing touches on his new documentary, Old Enough To Be President: Connor Ratliff's 35-Year Journey To The White House (which premieres October 15 at 92YTribeca).
Ratliff’s campaign began as a one-off video for public access talk show TCGS, and quickly blossomed into a full-blown political powerhouse, branching out to include national events, a full staff, and celebrity endorsements. His platform is simple — he meets the Constitutionally mandated minimum age for [...]
Chris Gethard and the group of weirdos and outcasts that participate in his cable access talk show/experiment The Chris Gethard Show love stunts, and they especially love stunts that put Chris in humiliating, dangerous or painful situations. So it's only natural that before the show sets up shop and performs at Bonnaroo this summer, Gethard is going to try to make it from LA to the festival in Tennessee with no money and no phone, relying entirely on strangers from the internet to help and/or hurt him. The whole thing will be taped, with daily updates on Geth's journey to be uploaded to the official Bonnaroo YouTube [...]
Zach Galifianakis was the guest on Wednesday night's episode of comedian Chris Gethard's self-titled public access/web show. You can watch the entire episode, which involved Gethard, Galifianakis, and company giving strangers haircuts live on air, above.
Here's the latest episode of filmmaker Scott Moran's PBS documentary web series Modern Comedian, in which he follows comedian/author/public access host Chris Gethard around with a camera for a day. It's an in-depth, serious look at what The Chris Gethard Show means to its fans and to Gethard himself. The only thing it's lacking is some deep introspection from the Human Fish.
Comedian Chris Gethard's nutty public access show will be broadcasting live election coverage all day, from noon to midnight EST, both streaming online (embedded here) and on the Manhattan TV station MNN4. Get ready for some seriously uninformed but fun political coverage, which should be a nice break from the mainstream media's the election reporting, which is not any fun outside of all the flashy graphics. The Chris Gethard Show's candidate Connor Ratliff will be in-house, and if the underdog pulls of an upset and beats favorites Obama and Romney, it'll make this episode of The Gethard Show pretty historic.
For Chris: I’ve always really wanted to get into acting and/or comedy but I’m terrified of failing at it. How do you get the courage to perform?
First off – the terror you’re feeling will never go away if you choose to go into this field. That’s just something I want to say very bluntly right at the top. There is no sugar coating that. I know it’s horrible to hear, but the terror ain’t going nowhere. That fear will manifest itself many [...]
