Debbie Millman | Audio

Catie Lazarus

Debbie Millman is endlessly fascinated by work and career. Not only what creative peple think about their jobs, but how the twists and turns of their life explain where they are. This fascination is shared by another host: comic and comedy writer Catie Lazarus. In front of a live audience in New York City, Catie interviews actors, comedians, media stars, and writers about work. John Hamm talks about how he struggled as a cook in his twenties. Zadie Smith explains how she once flirted with becoming a cabaret performer and then sings for the audience. Michael Keegan Key talks about improvising with President Obama for the White House Correspondents Dinner. The conversations are also available as a fantastic podcast entitled Employee of the Month.

Debbie talks to fellow podcast host Catie about comedy and about the grey area of comedians telling off-color jokes. “They may say the wrong thing to get to the right thing because that is where they workshop what they are working on.”
