PODCAST EP.27 – BILL HADER

Hello there. Podcast 27 is a conversation with American comedian, actor and writer Bill Hader.

He recently starred alongside Amy Shumer in Trainwreck which he was excellent in, and alongside Kristen Wiig in a film called The Skeleton Twins which I urge you to seek out, and he’s popped up in films like Superbad, Paul and Tropic Thunder, but he’s probably best known certainly in the US, from an 8 year tenure (from 2005) at American comedy institution Saturday Night Live or SNL, a show which has previously fostered many of America’s biggest comedy talents from John Belushi, Bill Murray and Eddie Murphy to Tina Fey, Will Ferrell, Jimmy Fallon and Amy Pohler and the aforementioned Kristen Wiig.

I spoke to Bill via a Skype link to Los Angeles California on July 13th 2016.

When I spoke with Bill I hadn’t seen this show he does with Fred Armisen called Documentary Now. Here’s the first one, a terrific homage to the legendary Grey Gardens by The Maysles Brothers.

  • Loving the new podcast with Bill Hader, but we cannot get over the similarity between his voice and Hether Ledgers Joker performance. We’ve even played some of the scenes during his interview and wow, you’ve got to try it. Maybe it’s the roomy environment the interview took place in, but it’s just a fantastically strange twist to the podcast.

    Anyway, enjoying your further adventures in virtual conversations and looking forward to the next one.

  • Great interview with Bill Hader. Loved the way you guys share a similar sense of humour (couldn’t really say the same for Sally Wainright!). Love the podcasts – been an avid follower and think you have a rare talent for this medium. Feels like major opportunities await. why radio hasn’t snapped you up for prime time show is beyond me. Keep up the good work and don’t doubt yourself – what you do is both original and really good. Who books your interviews? I think stars are increasingly looking for intelligent but fun interviews rather than the boring press junket types they get on tv and radio currently and clearly hate doing.
