“It’s like doing SNL in a different city every week, no reruns, no off-season, and just the Monday show is 3 hours.”
- Comedian Matt McCarthy on his time writing for the WWE on this week’s Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show.
Matt is one my absolute favorite comedians, and he recently spent about a year writing for the WWE. On this week’s podcast we discuss what exactly that entails, how he got the job, and what it’s like to work for Vince McMahon.
One of my favorite parts of the episode is when Matt talks about how pro-wrestling has influenced everything from comedy to Muhammad Ali to Bob Dylan. I think this is an interesting listen, even if you’re not into the WWE.
Matt’s stand-up CD Come Clean is on iTunes, and his videos with Front Page Films (including the Badman series) are everywhere.
The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show comes out Tuesdays on iTunes, YouTube, and JeffRubinJeffRubinShow.com.
