Special Guest: Chris Elliott

Interview

Saturday, December 17, 2005

Kurt Andersen and actor, comic, and writer Chris Elliott talk about failures, great and small. 

Chris Elliott got his break on David Letterman's show, playing an assortment of creepy losers like "the guy under the stairs." In the '90s his TV series Get a Life, and his film, Cabin Boy, were considered huge bombs, but both went on to become cult favorites. Elliott's new novel, The Shroud of the Thwacker, is a historical time-traveling murder mystery, written with absolutely no research.
