A Tribute to Ben Stiller: Respects Paid to Comedy Legend and Critically Acclaimed Writer-Director
Many times the expression ‘jack of all trades’ is followed with ‘master of none’ but this could not be further from the truth when referring to the legendary actor, writer, comedian, producer, and director, Ben Stiller. He’s been delivering impressive artistic projects for over four decades and is one of the most recognized names and faces in the entertainment industry. The son of iconic comedians Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, Stiller was around showbusiness his entire life. He and his sister Amy were well-known in the comedy circuit at places like The Improv and ‘The Mike Douglas Show’. He would later enroll as a film student at University of California, Los Angeles, but dropped out after nine months to pursue an acting career in New York, which, as we all know, paid off enormously for him and his hundreds of millions of fans.

Eps 28: Simple Sketch Comedy Shooting Techniques From The Ben Stiller Show
How To Produce Movies
I recently watched a sketch from The Ben Stiller Show to post with a previous podcast and got drawn into watching the whole brilliant single (award winning) season of The Ben Stiller Show. After I got through most of it I realized how many sketches could have been shot today, even under the restrictions of the pandemic, and decided to share that awareness on this podcast episode with the intention of helping fellow filmmakers get creative with how to shoot the movie ideas they are having right now, even if they think they do not have access to the locations they need.

Inside the MAGA Riot + A Conversation with Ben Stiller January 8, 2021
Mea Culpa with Michael Cohen
The January 6th MAGA riots that saw thousands of Trump loyalists ransack the Capitol Building will stain the President's legacy and will likely shadow the GOP for decades. The revulsion for Trump has grown to a fever pitch with scores of lawmakers calling for his removal from office. This was always the inevitable end for Donald Trump, the violence a by product of the lies and divisive rhetoric he used to stoke fear and foment rage. The only surprise is that it took this long to happen. It was a heavy day and hard to watch. So we decided to lighten the mood by reaching out to Ben Stiller. Check out Michael's hilarious conversation with the movie funny man to soothe your soul after so much chaos and insurrection.Also, make sure to check out Mea Culpa: The Election Essays for the definitive political document of 2020.

Ben Stiller Dishes on Trump’s Obsession with Zoolander
The New Abnormal with Molly Jong-Fast & Rick Wilson
Ben Stiller had no idea he was casting a future president when he grabbed Donald Trump and Melania for a quick cameo in Zoolander. But Trump apparently never forgot about it, Stiller tells Molly Jong-Fast, Rick Wilson, and Matt Wilstein in the latest episode of The New Abnormal. Stiller recalls how Trump even derailed an interview during the last campaign to talk about Zoolander 2. Trump “started going into detail about, you know… in the culture, people don't care about male models anymore,” Stiller recalls. Not that Stiller is particularly gratified by the attention. “Everybody has their own theories about whether or not [Trump] still wants to be president, but I think it's gone so far now. People's lives are being affected. And really, to me, it's not funny anymore. It's kinda just like, it's a little bit insane,” Stiller says. The actor/writer/director/comedian also discusses his work as an advocate for refugees, what it’s like to play Michael Cohen on SNL, what he wants to see from Joe Biden if he wins, and what are the boundaries of comedy in 2020. (“Tropic Thunder probably would not have been made... It would be tone deaf right now to make it,” he says.) Plus! Rick, Molly, and George Conway talk about whether Tucker Carlson will run for president (yes, with Eric Trump as a running mate); whether a war criminal is about to become a new Trumpworld star (unfortunately, that’s a yes, too); and whether our commander-in-chief actually gives a shit about the troops he’s supposed to be leading (hard no). As George says, Trump “expressed more concern about how he was perceived walking down that ramp at West point than he did about the fact that the soldiers that he spoke to that day could go to Afghanistan and get killed, because some Russians are paying money to the Taliban.”Subscribe to The Last Laugh: https://link.chtbl.com/thelastlaughWant more?
