Podcast: WTF w/ Marc Maron. Episode 459. Featuring Andy Samberg. Download Link: Here. iTunes Link: Here. Official Link: Here.

Andy Samberg (Native) says he’ll probably be most remembered for “D*** in a Box,” and that’s okay by him. Marc talks with the former SNL cast member to find out about the other things he’ll be remembered for, including his Lonely Island collaborations, his films and his new television show. Plus, Andy tells Marc why pro-wrestling is responsible for his devotion to SNL

[This really cleared up a lot of Lonely Island lore, as well as a delightful porthole into Andy’s goofiness. Good talk.]

[Exclamation! Lady 2 Lady has nestled under the wing of Maximum Fun (brainchild of SF Wonder Boy Jesse Thorn), raising their already high profile as go-to podcasters in the CC Offices (i.e. my apartment). I’d like to think and thank the comedy gods for making this debut so perfect; for a LA-based show this episode exudes Bay relevancy. You know what, fuck it, time to gush. Lady to Lady, in its excitable babble and unapologetic goof, is coming ro SFSketchfest (that’s right fucker of mothers*!) The Fest begins in 21 Days, bringing in an overdose of talent, including L2L (Live!) @ The Dark Room Theater on February 9th (last day of camp).

*note “fucker of mothers” was stolen from Johan Miranda]
