Chris Kattan was the first guest on the Classic Hits 93.1 Comedy Couch. I interviewed him this morning and played clips from the interview this afternoon on WNOX. He’s appearing at Side Splitters Comedy Club this weekend. Interviews from the Comedy Couch will be a weekly feature on my new afternoon-drive shift.
In addition to airing highlights on the radio, we will post the complete interviews on the Internet. I only expected to talk with Chris Kattan for ten minutes but once we got rolling, we kept going for 23 minutes. Like me, he is a fan of old-time comedy, as you will be able to tell from the names he mentioned as influences. We also chatted about The Groundlings and Saturday Night Live.
We both enjoyed riffing on odd topics like BBQ and cheese. I know because Chris told me so via Twitter (which made my day) and again when I went to see his show at Side Splitters on Thursday night.
