Funny Cuz It's True with Elyse Myers

Hello, and welcome to my podcast. I first went viral on TikTok after telling the story of how I got stuck buying 100 tacos on a first date. Since then, it’s been a wild and crazy ride. I now have millions of eyeballs watching my videos on a daily basis (which is just a terrifying number of eyeballs, honestly). Each week on my podcast Funny Cuz It’s True, I’ll be sitting down with my favorite creators, friends and comedians to find the stories that have stuck with them and changed their lives in small ways. Not so funny moments that have become funny over time. I want to know how they handled these situations and learned to laugh about them years later. How do they do it? Great question, I’d love to tell you (but you have to listen to find out).

episode 10: Finding My Superpower (with Atsuko Okatsuka)


Atsuko Okatsuka once did stand-up during an earthquake – but that’s not even the craziest thing that’s happened in her life. Atsuko talks to me about turning the things that made her feel different as a kid into superpowers. Plus, she explains why she thinks comedy is a service, getting kicked out of church choir, and her upcoming HBO special “The Intruder.”

episode 9: Podcrushed: Penn Badgley Interviews Elyse Myers


On this special episode, Penn Badgley interviews me on his new podcast Podcrushed! Podcrushed explores the heartbreak, anxiety and self-discovery of being a teenager. I sat down with Penn and his co-hosts Nava and Sophie and shared the real story behind the taco date, how I knew Jonas was different from all the other men I dated, and what I would say to ‘12-year-old Elyse’ today.

episode 7: Falling In Love Again with (Kaitlyn Bristowe)


Kaitlyn is my good friend and appeared on the Bachelor as a contestant before starring as a Bachelorette herself. Believe it or not, she was the very first person I interviewed for this podcast, so you might be able to hear just how nervous I was. We talk about those kinds of first loves you never really forget – for good and for bad. It’s basically an unexpected therapy session. Plus, we take some wisdom from the Kardashians...

episode 6: Hitting Singles with Office Ladies


I thought I peaked when they played my song “Whispers in the Breakroom” on their podcast. But oh no. It just got better. Angela Kinsey and Jenna Fischer (aaaaah!!!), The Office Ladies, are my very special guests this week. They tell me about becoming friends over a partition, the hard years before their big break, and why they won’t stop talking about their time on “The Office.” Plus, Jenna shares a hot tip on how to meet celebrities at fancy events...

episode 5: Sketch(ing) Comedy (with Kevin Nealon)


I grew up watching Kevin Nealon on SNL, and now he’s on my podcast. Are you joking??? Along with being an incredible comedian, Kevin tells me about his lifelong passion for drawing. His new book “I Exaggerate: My Brushes with Fame” features stories about celebrities he’s met, accompanied by caricatures he’s drawn of them. Kevin even gives me a peek at what my caricature would look like...

episode 4: Remembering the First Time I Was Funny (with Rachel Bloom)


If my life was a musical comedy, I'd ask Rachel Bloom to write, direct, AND star in it. The actress, singer/songwriter, and comedian tells me about her quest to make musical comedy actually funny (like, literally laugh-out-loud funny), dealing with ADHD, and what it’s like being a female comedian.

episode 3: Manifesting My Magical Powers (with Tristen Winger)


There are an unbelievable amount of things actor Tristen Winger and I have in common – our love for music, our interest in engineering, our early graduation from high school, and losing our cool in front of our biggest idols. But something that really stuck out to me when I talked to the "Insecure" and "So Help Me Todd" actor was his ability to make his dreams come true through manifestation...

episode 2: Overthinking my first talent show (with Lance Bass)


I did a podcast with my childhood crush and favorite member of NSYNC, and only freaked out a few times. The incredible Lance Bass tells me about growing up while performing with NSYNC. As a closeted teen, Lance had to hide a lot about himself. But no longer – Lance lives proudly as his true self with his husband and two children. Plus, he invites me to Disney World and all I can think about is eating a turkey leg...

episode 1: Overthinking my first kiss (with Paul Feig)


Legendary director, writer, and actor Paul Feig joins me for our very first episode. Note to listeners: he’s in a seven-piece suit, and I’m in sweatpants. It’s great. You'll hear all about my first kiss, and Paul's own awkward romances (like the ones that inspired his show "Freaks and Geeks”). Plus, Paul shares his experiences from “The Office.” I learn the creative process doesn’t really get easier, even after decades in the industry...
