Creating Comedy Central and the Business of Television with Art Bell

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Art Bell is the author of Constant Comedy: How I started Comedy Central and Lost My Sense of Humor. If that title doesn't immediately pique your interest, here's a little taste of what you'll find in this episode:

  • Art talks about the hardships he encountered with his idea for a new TV channel all about comedy — and how he powered through multiple obstacles.
  • We talk a WHOLE BUNCH of Mystery Science Theater 3K, one of the most important shows in comedy history.
  • Art shares stories about top comedians, including a great conversation with Jerry Seinfeld's agent.

We're having a ton of fun here and I know you will, too. Thanks for listening!
