I looked through the archived hour-long variety shows, complete with call-ins, characters, and musical guests. I was instantly drawn in to this offbeat sort of humor. I contacted the audience list email and was signed up. Awesome.
Of course there was comedy and laughs as well. Each person who spoke on stage was forced to wear headphones attached to the Speech Jammer iPad app.
The thing that stood out to me, as a first timer, was how the show started. Gethard began with a poignant monologue about how each person needs to find "their own Chris Gethard Show," meaning that if you have a dream, do it. Even if it is weird and you don't think you can, you should. People may laugh at your idea, whether to be a YouTube show, a comic book, a screenplay, or (in my case) a blog with an eventual podcast. But that is no reason not to try things.
So seriously. If you like funny, quirky comedy and just generally cool people, check out the show. Check out Chris and his Weird NJ/ Weird US series and his collection of stories about his life called "A Bad Idea I'm About to Do" (which he was gracious enough to sign for my boyfriend).
Edit: As promised, here is a link to the "Hundo" episode.
