A cross between Charlie Rose and This Old House, Inside Joke answers the question �What makes people laugh� without ever asking it.
Past guests at Inside Joke include Stephen Colbert, Anchorman director and co-writer Adam McKay, Scott Thompson of The Kids in the Hall and Al Franken, among others. More information is available at inside-joke.com, as well as the interview with Jon Stewart that started the stage show, Stephen Colbert conversation highlights, an MP3 of the Chicago Improv Festival show with guest Mark Twain, and photos from past chats.
Hosted by Carl Arnheiter
Crowd-roiling by Dave Thunder
?In a perfect world, Inside Joke would be seen by millions on Comedy Central.?
-Joe Grossman, Time Out NY
"The simple setup of Inside Joke, two chairs facing each other on a bare stage, reflects the refreshing candor of its concept: a conversation about the art of comedy with some of its best practitioners. At first glance, it might resemble an Inside the Actor's Studio for comedians, but Carl Arnheiter's ease with his guests is far more entertaining than James Lipton's awe-inspiring pretension and obsequiousness. Of course, the guests are a lot funnier, too."
