EP.79 ANDY KINDLER VS TWITTER  

It's been a controversial week for comedy legend Andy Kindler. The Letterman alum kicked a hornet's nest by tweeting that Sam Harris is an anti-Muslim bigot... on what turned out to be the eve of a jihadist attack on Westminster. Harris pushed back. A Twitter shit-storm ensued. #WeThePeople LIVE is the only show that has featured both Harris and Kindler as recent guests, so we sought a détente. Josh spoke with Sam via email, and sat down with Andy to discuss the disagreement, Islam, bigotry, and the ugliness of trolling. Who's right? Who's wrong? You decide! Our thanks to Harris and Kindler for their time. Make debate healthy again, humans.

Industry Standard 120:  Andy Kindler  

ANDY KINDLER is a comedian, actor, and writer.  Kindler has been writing and performing for nearly three decades.  In 1992, he appeared on the 15th annual Young Comedians special.  He has appeared on Everybody Loves Raymond, Maron, Dr. Katz, The Wizards of Waverly Place, Home Movies, Comedy Bang! Bang!, and Raising Dad.  Andy was a contributor to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and was a regular fixture on The Late Show with David Letterman and appeared four times on Late Night with Conan O'Brien.  Kindler is well known in the comedy world for delivering his annual state of the industry address at the Montreal Just For Laughs festival.  He is currently the voice of Mort the Mortician on the FOX annimated show, Bob's Burgers.

Trump's Comey Over  

Trump's guilty of a cover-up far more blatant than those lion pubic hairs stapled to the top of his skull. Comics Andy Kindler and Bruce Smirnoff along with National Security Reporter for The Intercept Mattathias Schwartz, Constitutional Law Professor Corey Brettschneider and Movie Critic Michael Snyder. Plus From The Vault: Robert Smigel is Donald Trump. Andy Kindler regularly voices the character of Mort, a mortician and the Belchers' neighbor, on Bob's Burgers. He also stars on IFC's Maron. His State of The Industry addresses make history at Montreal's Just For Laughs Festival and are now available for download on iTunes. Kindler is considered one of the funniest comic minds and the most daring, unafraid to attack comics, producers, agents and everybody else who can further his career. He is one of Alex Brizel's all time favorite comics which makes David jealous. Mattathias Schwartz is a national security reporter for The Intercept. He has served as a contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine, a staff writer at The New Yorker, and is currently a term member at the Council on Foreign Relations. In the past, he has contributed to the print editions of the Wall Street Journal, Wired, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, MIT Technology Review, Harper’s, and the London Review of Books, among other publications. He founded and funded the Philadelphia Independent, a broadsheet newspaper, and served as editor and publisher for its 21-issue run. “A Massacre in Jamaica,” Schwartz’s investigation into the extradition of Christopher “Dudus” Coke, for The New Yorker, won the Livingston Award for International Reporting. “A Mission Gone Wrong,” an investigation of the killing of four Honduran civilians during a DEA-led drug interdiction, was later nominated for the same award. Schwartz also wrote “The Whole Haystack,” which examines the government’s collection of domestic phone metadata under the controversial Section 215 program. Bruce Smirnoff's show business career began at the age of 13, when he tried to attempt an acrobatic stunt he witnessed on the Ed Sullivan Show. The next day, from his hospital room in ICU, Bruce chose the guitar as his next foray into the performance world, convinced this would net him the attention from the females he so desired at school! Armed with no real ability, a low IQ, and no interest, whatsoever, from females, Bruce soon found something he was good at, STAND-UP COMEDY. At Boston University in the late 70's, Bruce became famous ushering in the tremendous comedy boom that swept Boston, which included people like homegrown Jay Leno. Bruce wound up in L.A. in '78, where he spent the next twenty-two years, leading to dozens and dozens of national TV appearances and his 1998 critically acclaimed, award winning One-Man Show, "Other Than My Health, I Have Nothing.And Today, I Don't Feel So Good!" The show ran two years in L.A., then made stops in Toronto, New York, Cleveland and Kansas City. Currently residing in Florida, Bruce headlines in top comedy clubs and gated communities throughout the United States, Canada, and Australia, where his topical humor and quick wit have won audiences everywhere. He has opened for stars like Julio Iglesias, the Righteous Brothers, Gregory Hines, and Andrew Dice Clay. Corey Brettschneider, Professor of Political Science at Brown University, teaches courses in political theory and public law. He is also Professor, by courtesy, of Philosophy. He holds a Ph.D. in Politics from Princeton University and a J.D. from Stanford Law School. Professor Brettschneider works at the intersection of constitutional law and democratic theory. He also has been a visiting professor at law schools, including The University of Chicago, Fordham and Harvard. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

John Waters & Andy Kindler  

We got John Waters in the studio (he wore a beautiful Commes de Garcon shirt, btw). John has a new book out, it's a transcript of a commencement speech he gave to RISD students in 2015. Jesse talks with him about Little Richard, trigger warnings, and how the film industry tried (and failed) to make the King of Trash compromise his work. Then, Andy Kindler stopy by. Andy's a terrific stand up and hosts the latest season of the Hulu series Coming to the Stage. Since 1996, Andy's also given a speech at the Just for Laughs Festival - it's called the State of the Industry. For about an hour each year, Andy basically puts comedians and the entire industry on blast - popular targets include Jay Leno, Ricky Gervais, and lazy journalists. It's made him one of the funniest and sincere truth tellers in comedy. His newest album is a never before released recording of his original 1996 address.

Andy Kindler Returns!  

Andy Kindler is back to talk about dropping acid, being judgmental, therapy and anti-depressants, OCD, "checking," why he goes after certain public targets, new atheists, the recent release of his very first State of the Industry address, silverfish and so much more. We also took your questions over Twitter and did a round of Just Me Or Everyone.

Andy Kindler - Episode 634  

Greg is late to his own podcast, so Andy Kindler starts it alone and then brings him to tears.

Episode 792 - Fred Melamed / Andy Kindler  

Fred Melamed is instantly familiar, not only because of his scene-stealing performances in the Coen Brothers' A Serious Man and Maria Bamford's Lady Dynamite, but because he is an indelible New York character. But that familiarity came with a price, as 20 years of successful work actually led to a complete bottoming out in Fred's life. He tells Marc how he pulled out of it. Plus, Andy Kindler stops by to talk about the big change in his life. This episode is sponsored by Showstopper on Spotify, Proper Cloth, and Sonos.
