Delivering laughs, pointed critique on Hollywood, race, political correctness, and the indignities of old age, these conversations between NPR's Terri Gross and stars of comedy features unmissable interviews with heavyweights like George Carlin, Woody Allen, Joan Rivers, Steve Martin, and Sarah Silverman. Listeners will delight in learning just how Tina Fey channeled Sarah Palin (it has more to do with camera angles than you'd think), Trey Parker and Matt Stone's impish delight in riling up Tom Cruise, and Steven Colbert and Jon Stewart singing about the merits of Hanukkah. Other highlights include a rare out-of-character interview with Sacha Baron Cohen, Will Ferrell's awkward meeting with George W. Bush, and Aziz Ansari goading Gross into saying naughty words on air.
