EJ Podcast #071 with Matt Walsh

Below is the next “Scratch the Surface” EJ Podcast. EJ has as his guest today Matt Walsh.


EJ says:

Matt Walsh is a stand out comedian among stand out comedians on the HBO show VEEP. But he didn’t start out wanting to do comedy. He started out as a psychologist. During this interview I think Matt uses some of his training on me and divulge things about myself I don’t think I have previously on my podcasts.
Ej and Matt talk about:

  • improv,
  • Chicago sports,
  • how humor helped Matt make friends and not get beat up,
  • being a dad,
  • drug use,
  • meeting his wife, Morgan,
  • directing,
  • being on the Daily Show as a correspondant and his return for the end of Jon Stewarts run,
  • co-founding The Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, which has 4 locations now,
  • his fear of providing for a growing family as an actor,
  • growing up 1 of 7 siblings,
  • Del Close,
  • his belief in religion after being raised a Catholic,
  • his frustartion as a teacher,
  • coaching the Harlem Globetrotters in improv
  • and so much MORE!!
