The Comedians and Cameos

April 10th, 2015

Episode 442 of 627 episodes

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson, Glen Weldon, and Chris Klimek discuss the new FX series The Comedians, starring Billy Crystal and Josh Gad. They'll discuss its relatives in the broader family of show business stories and backstage satire. Then they'll take a look at the briefest of acting triumphs: the cameo. From football players who are a little wooden to politicians who should have stayed in their offices, they'll chat about what cameos are and how they work. All that, plus What's Making Us Happy
