PAUL F. TOMPKINS IS ONLINE

And plus also, here is a round of Speakeasy word association with Doug Benson that falls apart almost instantly.

NEW SPEAKEASY!

Here I am with my old pal, comedian Doug Benson. He loves movies, but hates 3-D. Just in terms of movies, though, I think. Not just in general. I am pretty sure he is in favor of stuff being solid and whatever. I should have asked him, I guess.

MORE SPEAKEASY!

Here now is my full conversation with Mad Men’s Rich Sommer. We talk booze, Broadway and board games: THE THREE ETERNAL B’s!!!

NEW SPEAKEASY!

Here is a li’l epispodette wherein Mad Men’s Rich Sommer and I play a cleaned-up version of a classic game (the murder aspect remains unchanged).

SPEAKEASY: The full interview with Aziz Ansari

The Parks and Recreation star and I talk about food and clothes, the two topics.

NEW SPEAKEASY!

Here is some word association with my guest Aziz Ansari. He confided to me shortly after the game was over that he used almost all of the total amount of words that he knows.

SPEAKEASY IS BACK— WITH FULL-LENGTH INTERVIEWS!

We are trying 22-minute editions of Speakeasy, and our first guest in the new format is the hilarious and exceedingly likeable Nat Faxon, star of the charming Ben and Kate.

If you ever watch internet stuff on your television via Apple TV or some such device, you will enjoy the fact that Speakeasy looks like an actual TV show, and not a phone video blown up to a collection of 18 colorful squares.

However you choose to watch it, we hope you choose to like it!

MORE SPEAKEASY.

Here, I force Ben And Kate star Nat Faxon to associate some words I say with some other words he then must say. The pressure practically KILLS him.

Next, Nat becomes our first FULL, 22-MINUTE INTERVIEW.

Thanks to everyone who watched the latest round of Speakeasy. We’re doing more very soon!

Catch up here.
