Starring actors you know and love from television and film, a live audience, and a good time in which no one gets notes, no one is fired, and everyone laughs. Presented by Andrew Reich (Friends; Worst Week) and Ben Blacker (The Writers Panel podcast; co-creator, Thrilling Adventure Hour).

Our pilot this month is so great and so special! It’s written by Morgan Murphy (2 Broke Girls, Jimmy Kimmel Live) and it’s called Talk Nerdy to Me. The log line for this one is a squad of four dorky but brilliant women sharing a house in Venice, CA deal with VR porn, leaky rowboats, people urinating while rollerblading, and other facts of life in Silicon Beach.

We had a great cast for this one including Lauren Lapkus as Harper, Kirby Howell Baptiste as Maddie, Elizabeth Ho as Ruth, Aparna Nancherla as Jessie, Scott MacArthur as Nick, Glenn Howerton as Robbie Kearse, Sam Richardson as Walsh, Gary Anthony Williams as Voice/Anthony, Janina Gavankar as Assistant/Hector, and Andrew Reich with stage directions.

In this episode, Andrew interviews Morgan regarding her dead pilot and you’ll also listen to a live table read of Talk Nerdy to Me, performed by some of today's funniest comedic actors!
