Interviews: Punknews speaks to Chris Gethard about his new show

Posted by johng on Thursday, January 29, 2015 at 12:00 AM (EST)
Image Just minutes ago, Chris Gethard aired the very last episode of his public access show, The Chris Gethard Show. Over the course of five years, Gethard grew the talk show through a punk rock dedication to DIY culture, and created a weird world with regulars like Vacation Jason, a man who is always on vacation, The Human Fish, a fish in a man’s skin that dispenses sage-like wisdon, and… um… “The Beast Masturbator.”

On top of that, almost every TCGS features wild, new acts, most of them culled from the punk and indie circles, such as Night Birds, Plow United, and Crazy and the Brains. Despite all the chaos, with many shows collapsing during filming, the affable Gethard remained the constant straight man, reacting to the chaos constantly shambling about the set. (Fittingly, the last episode was cut off with two minutes to go.)

Now, Gethard is taking his show to a for-real-deal cable network, executive produced by Will Ferrell. It’s a big step for Gethard and the show's fans seem to be as excited as they are pensive. To get the details, features editor John Gentile spoke to Gethard on the afternoon before the final taping of the public access show. You can click read more for the interview.
