5/11/2016
More
Okay, so I give my guests the options of some things that aren't strictly comedy, when those things inspired them and at least have some comedic elements to them. Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devils Wears Prada, 27 DressesANDco-creator of friend of the show Rachel Bloom's wonderful show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) took me up on the challenge and picked Fiddler on the Roof with Zero Mostel. There are plenty of comedic songs in Fiddler, and Zero Mostel could be funny falling down a set of stairs....
