Last month, an incident occurred on The Chris Gethard Show with a public access producer known only as Smith (played by comedian Brett Davis) who interrupted the show with complaints about TCGS and some personal digs at Gethard. For this week's show, Gethard's time slot on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network was overtaken by Smith for the debut episode of his own stuffy conspiracy show Truth or Myth with Smith, and the result is a hilarious hourlong look into Smith's twisted mind. I'm not sure which part is my favorite — the intense panel debate about 9/11, an overabundance of references to zinc, Smith singing "Brown Eyed Girl" with [...]
A little over a month ago, Chris Gethard took a break from hosting his weekly public access show The Chris Gethard Show and announced that its fate would be decided on September 24th. Thankfully for TCGS fans, the show returned to the Manhattan Neighborhood Network last night, and Gethard wrote an update on his blog explaining why he decided to continue with it and what his plans are going forward:
The show is going to be different. It’s going to be rocky. We’re going to rebuild it from this perspective – when we started at UCB, I was a twenty-nine year old kid who slept in a human [...]
In January, comedian Chris Gethard shot a pilot of his public access series The Chris Gethard Show for Comedy Central. The network recently passed on the show, but Gethard announced today there will be a one-time only public screening of the pilot, with a catch: you have to win an intense Game of Thrones-themed competition to be able to see it.
For the UCB Theatre's annual Del Close Marathon this coming weekend, The Chris Gethard Show is doing a Game of Thrones-style show with audience members forming teams and competing in a series of trials. Gethard writes:
"When only one team is left standing, they will [...]
Comedian Chris Gethard announced on Tumblr today that Comedy Central has decided not to order his pilot for The Chris Gethard Show to series. "Apparently at the end of the day, their marketing department thought we were too weird," Gethard writes. "We knew we were too weird. It happens."
Gethard taped the pilot, a continuation of his public access show of the same name, in New York City in January. The pilot was produced by Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, and Adam McKay and featured Michael Cera as a guest. "I want to be very clear on something," Gethard wrote on Tumblr. "It would completely break my heart [...]
Wearing a white t-shirt with the words MAKE IT OR BREAK IT scribbled on the front in black ink, Chris Gethard stepped in front of the cameras last night to tape the Comedy Central pilot of The Chris Gethard Show. Longtime fans of Gethard's public access show traveled from Ohio, California, Hawaii, Canada, and Brazil just to be part of the inaugural episode, and Michael Cera had the distinct honor of being Gethard's first guest. Though we can't give away too many details on the content of the pilot, here's a peek at what the taping was like and why TCGS would make Comedy Central's best new underdog.
