On the first-ever HuffPost Comedy podcast, Carol Hartsell and Katla McGlynn sit down with comedian and storyteller Tom Shillue to discuss the latest photo hacking scandal, the origin of Tom’s “Tonight Show” barbershop quartet, the ultimate #TBT photos and why you’ll never hear them talk about social media breaks.
“I was talking about having an affair with a married professor and that wasn’t a thing a nice Jewish girl talked about. And I was talking about my mother, desperate to get my sister and me married. I was talking about my gay friend Mr. Phyllis, and you just didn’t talk about that. It sounds so tame and silly now but my act spoke to women who weren’t able to talk about things.”—Joan Rivers in "We Killed: The Rise Of Women In American Comedy"
“I thought ‘Garfunkel and Oates’ would be too confusing, but it ended up being confusing in the best of ways because the first time we played a comedy club, it was because they thought we were the real Garfunkel and Oates.”—Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci discuss how they got their name, what to expect in their new IFC show, why they don’t smoke weed with their fans, and a bunch of other stuff in our interview.
