The Daily Show Co-Creator Madeleine Smithberg Walks Away From Producing Career To Turn Camera On Herself

SheSez with Linda Grasso

After a successful TV producing career which included co-creating The Daily Show, as well as Emmy and Peabody Awards, Madeleine Smithberg walked away from it all to follow her heart—literally. With a lifelong passion for food, Madeleine did something she'd dreamed of: she kicked off her own cooking show, Mad In The Kitchen, which seamlessly weaves together her love of cooking with her keen sense of humor. During the pandemic, she also moved from New York to Seattle to marry a man she hadn't seen in 20 years, the love of her life who broke her heart back in her twenties.  Madeleine also dishes on the early years of producing all those funny cooking segments for Late Night With David Letterman (remember those hilarious ones with Julia Child?); how she persuaded Jon Stewart to host The Daily Show; and how she helped discover several of today's biggest names in comedy like Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell.  Mad In The Kitchen has been featured on numerous national outlets including The Today Show. You can view and subscribe to it on YouTube here.

Somewhat Damaged

In the ongoing series of “how did TMD score that interview” we bring you, Madeleine Smithberg, host of the new Youtube show “MAD IN THE KITCHEN” and co-creator of a little program called “The Daily Show where she earned a Peabody and Emmy Award.  During her tenure, she was directly responsible for the casting of performers such as Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Ed Helms, and Rob Corddry, Mo Rocca, Lewis Black, among others.  Know them?   Her credits are far too long and the list of people she has worked with will make you weep in jealousy at how amazing her career has been.   We talked about her history in TV, and a lot about food and her new show.   We are so very lucky to have gotten 34 minutes with her.  We have been starving for more since.   Enjoy this one and be sure to check out her show.  https://www.youtube.com/c/MADINTHEKITCHENSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
