The Hall: Honoring The Greats of Stand Up | The Official Podcast

THE HALL podcast series for “Netflix is a Joke” is delving deep into the lives and careers of the greats of Stand-Up Comedy. This second episode of THE HALL looks at Joan Rivers who is appropriately described as “fucking funny” by one interviewee. On this episode, host Cristela Alonzo talks to so many of Rivers’ friends and colleagues to honor the trailblazing comedian. From Rivers’ early years experimenting with Stand Up in New York City’s Greenwich Village to her comeback after professional and personal setbacks after getting banished from The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Rivers was rarely afraid to offend, she took on sensitive topics and hecklers alike. There aren’t many examples of comedians who, on the day they die, are the most popular they have ever been. To honor Rivers, we speak to Susie Essman, Ellie Kemper, Aisha Tyler, Sherri Shepherd, Mario Cantone, her daughter Melissa Rivers, and more.

Busy Philipps is Doing Her Best

Busy & Caissie are doing their best, but, not gonna lie, it’s been a rough several days…in our world, in our country and in Busy’s flooded basement. However, this episode’s guest appearance is rare and special. Once in a lifetime, really. This week marks 7 years since Joan Rivers has been gone and, by chance, Caissie recently found a long-lost interview she recorded with Joan, her friend and mentor and colleague, ten years ago, in 2011. In it, she discusses some pretty important pivots, which is prophetic considering this podcast wasn’t even conceived yet. Joan discusses her feud with Johnny Carson, what she really thought of Donald Trump’s Presidential aspirations at that time, who her celebrity BFFS are and who wrote the note she carried around in her bra for years. It’s pretty magical to hear from her again. (Thank you to Melissa Rivers for giving her blessing to publish this recording.)SPONSORS:OliveandJune.com promo code: BEST for 20% off your 1st mani systemSakara.com/BUSY for 20% off your 1st orderGirlfriend.com/BEST for $25 off orders of $100 or more for 1st time customersWondrium.com/BEST for a free one month trial with unlimited accessVizzyHardSeltzer.com/BUSYForiaWellness.com/BEST for 20% off your first order
