7: Mary Houlihan
My guest this week is Mary Houlihan, a New York based comedian, writer, animator and artist who's appeared on Broad City, Billy On The Street, Difficult People, The Chris Gethard Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Rachel Dratch’s Late Night Snack, as well as in The New Yorker, McSweeney’s and Reductress. She also did the artwork for the Adult Swim show 'Joe Pera Talks With You'. Her work has also been celebrated by Entertainment Weekly, Vulture Magazine, Paper, Onion AV Club, and Forbes. Esquire Magazine even described her interview with Martin Shkreli as evidence that “justice still exists in our world”. She also created the Comedy Central hybrid animation miniseries ‘Learn to Paint With Mary Houlihan’ - which I urge you to check out on YouTube immediately. Over the course of the show, you’ll hear about art via painting versus performing, what makes alt comedy alt, performing absurdist standup in Montana and Edinburgh, the canon of Jack Nicholson, and so much more.
