I was so happy to chat with my old pal Kaitlin Olson about It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and life and competition and motherhood and sketch shows that didn’t quite work out so great. She is a tremendously talented, thoughtful, funny and warm person. Watch and see for yourself. YOU JUST WATCH.
(If you like the show, please let people know about it! If this is your first time watching Speakeasy with Paul F. Tompkins, there are many more episodes for your viewing pleasure to be found here on my YouTube channel.)

THE DEAD AUTHORS PODCAST, CHAPTER 27: TENNESSEE WILLIAMS
Thanks to Kristen Schaal, for no particular reason.
FX/FXx has found their next comedian that they want to develop a series around thankfully in Jen Kirkman. Much along the way Legit and Louie are focused on the comedy of Jim Jefferies and Louis C.K., ‘Jen’ will be seemingly very much centered on Jen Kirkman’s stand up.
It’s also good to see that FXx is keeping their development slate robost and moving. If anything, this should emphatically prove that Jen Kirkman, as her podcast suggests, is indeed fun.
We’re not sure how many times we’re going to say “nice move” to Fox by picking up what sounds like an amazing comedy project, but here we go again as they have gotten their hands on something from the combined talents of Matt Gourley of Super Ego, Amanda Lund of Yahoo’s Ghost Ghirls, Jack Black, and Diablo Cody.
Paul F. Tompkins' new show on Fusion is pretty great if you haven't seen it yet or got around to getting Fusion on your TV.
Basically, Tompkins discusses big time issues with puppets (i.e. immigration reform with an alien puppet) and there are a few clips of it to watch at Fusion.net that you should absolutely watch right now.
Me and Hal Hartley in 1997 on the set of “Henry Fool.” In 2006 I reprised my role as Simon Grim in the sequel “Fay Grim.” Now Hal is Kickstartering “Ned Rifle,” the third movie in what he always conceived as a trilogy.
Hal’s a true artist, a personal filmmaker with a real vision. He’s always had to work to raise money. He’s working hard at it now. If you’ve enjoyed “Henry Fool” or any of his films, I urge you to help make this one happen. You can also help just by reposting this. I’m looking forward to putting that jacket back on.
SUPEREGO EPISODE 3:7 - Dimello, Webber & Giger

Wouldn’t it be kiiiiiiinda cool if there was a TV show where there was a lot of stuff like this by these people and everybody involved got paid to do it?

Our thanks to Yerd Nerp for his candor and thoughtfulness.
