Chris got a chance to hang out in a (noisy) hotel lobby with up and coming stand-up Erik Charles Nielsen, who you may not know (yet) from his act, but you DO know from the show “Community” where he plays the character of Garrett Lambert. Erik and Chris get all up into the techniques of stand-up and philosophy of absurdist humor, as well as talking about his experiences on the set of the tv series. Check it out!

Chris and Erik Charles Nielsen

Written by

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
