episode 1: Maria Bamford Wants You to Know How Much Money She Makes (Rerun)

The interview focuses on the commencement speech she gave at the University of Minnesota—her alma mater—in which she discussed the negotiations that took place to arrive at her fee for said speech, along with a long list of the mistakes she's made in her life...

episode 2: Ron Funches's "F Linda"


Jesse talks to Ron Funches about his short but sweet joke "F Linda". The "F" in this joke title stands for f**k, so you're going to hear the word f**k a lot. Wait, where are those stars coming from. I can't type f**k here? Ok. Fine. Moving on. "F Linda" is just over a minute and half long, but Ron Funches achieves maximum hang time in between the few words that comprise the joke...

episode 3: Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok


Back in Season 2, Jesse got to speak with actor, writer, and director Taika Waititi about his remarkably comedic take on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor: Ragnarok. The interview touches on Taika's New Zealand style of comedy, and how he approached changing a historically serious protagonist like Thor into the goofy, muscly, laugh-inducing character that he is in Ragnarok. Jesse and Taika talk pre and post production, as well as what role improvisation takes on set. Also included: eggs...

episode 5: Roy Wood Jr.'s Black Patriotism (Rerun)


In 2017, Jesse recorded a live episode of Good One with Roy Wood Jr. at the Just For Laughs Festival in Toronto. The bit that they discussed was "Black Patriotism?", from Roy's 2017 special Father Figure. Roy reveals the staggering amount of live comedy he watches in order to ensure his material is truly his own. He's a brilliant comedic strategist who understands that for a joke to truly be funny, it needs to be funny everywhere--even in front of the people it pokes fun at...

episode 6: Jeff Garlin Refuses to Pick a Joke


Jesse sits with Jeff Garlin for a somewhat flipped version of Good One. Jeff didn’t feel he’d be a right fit for the show as he's not one for dissecting his process. Hear why that is, why he thinks Eddie Murphy is the Babe Ruth of standup, and about making the latest season of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
