An entertaining and informative collection of interviews of primarily comedians by the NPR show Fresh Air, helmed most by Terry Gross, that fans of comedy will much enjoy. The only downside is that each clip should have been at least an hour long. Some great anecdotes and insights.
I actually guffawed during a couple of interviews...
started listening to this and am loving it. Terry Gross is one of my favorite interviewers and to hear her interviewing Mike Judge, the South Park guys and even people I'm not normally fans of like Sarah Silverman and Will Farrell - my mood improved just hearing it and I had several needed laugh out loud moments.
Listen to it as a book on CD. I don't imagine it would be as entertaining in written form.
My only complaint is I want more! I LOVED each and every interview and didn't want it to end!
Fantastic collection of excerpts from Terry Gross' interviews with some very funny people.
Nice CD to listen to in the car. Terry Gross is a terrific interviewer.
