    Seth is unique in interviews in that, as a comedian, he gets what other comedians are going for. He understands the setup for bits and how comedians have to support themselves by finding humor in when their jokes DON’T land. “Ah that didn’t get a laugh but let me just roll around here in the mud for a bit so long as I’m down here.”

    Working for drug dealers is the same as law enforcement and military.
    I would rather make bank as a comedian.
    You made a good move sir.

    I guess that those people who go to therapists are afraid of therapists and therefore expose themselves to therapists.

    At first, I didn’t love that he wasn’t making eye contact with Seth. But then he was just, like, the funniest possible guest on this show.
