Comedian Scott Rogowsky (ABC’s “Would You Fall For That?”), his sidekick/dad Marty, and his band The Musical Guests welcome New York City’s finest actors, authors, filmmakers, comedians, musicians, pizza tour guides, sex bloggers, and otherwise interesting people to Littlefield’s couch for some chit, some chat, and a whole lot of laughs. This show’s guests are Eugene Mirman, Demetri Martin, Levi Macdougall, Mark Normand and Grizz Chapman.
Demetri Martin rose to relative obscurity when he started doing stand-up comedy in New York City at the end of the 20th Century. Later he became a writer at Late Night with Conan O’Brien and then a regular performer on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. In 2003, Demetri won the Perrier Award at the International Fringe Festival for his first one-man show, If I. He released a comedy album called These Are Jokes and then created and starred in his own television series called Important Things with Demetri Martin. His first stand-up comedy special, Demetri Martin. Person is considered by many to be his longest and only hour-long stand-up comedy special. Martin has appeared in movies as an actor, most recently in Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion and most lengthily in Ang Lee’s Taking Woodstock. His first book, This Is a Book by Demetri Martin is a New York Times Bestseller. Demetri has brown hair, and he is allergic to peanuts. You can find him at www.demetrimartin.com, at www.facebook.com/demetrimartin, on Twitter @demetrimartin, and in various places in the actual physical world.
Levi MacDougall is a some-awards-winning comedian, writer and actor. He was born in a part of Canada and he tells jokes and stories.In 2004, Levi recorded an hour-long stand-up special for CTV’s Comedy Now! which went on to win two Canadian Comedy Awards. It was also nominated for a Gemini (the Canadian equivalent of the Emmy). Levi was recently seen as a series regular on The Comedy Network’s new show Hotbox. He’s also been a regular cast member on popcultured and The Jon Dore Show (in the recurring role of renowned savior, Jesus Christ). Stand-up-wise, Levi recently opened for legendary comedian Mort Sahl at Pop Montreal. Other acts he’s opened for include musicians Bob Wiseman, Ndidi Onukwulu and Baby Eagle. He’s appeared on Andy Kindler’s Alternative Show at Just For Laughs, Boston Comedy Festival, Hollywood Improv and Comedy Death-Ray at the UCB in L.A. Most recently, he was a writer for Comedy Central’s “Important Things with Demetri Martin.”
Mark Normand was born and raised in New Orleans, LA, where at an early age he was exposed to the odd sides of life. As a kid he spent most of his time acting in plays and shooting short films. Mark started doing comedy right after college and quickly moved to New York. Mark now works comedy clubs and colleges across the country and has been involved in many festivals including Portland, Seattle, DC, Boston and most recently was featured at the Montreal Comedy Festival. Mark also recently appeared on the last season of Last Comic Standing. In NYC Mark now runs two independent comedy shows, one of which is recorded for a popular podcast called ‘We’re all Friends Here’ on Breakthruradio.com.
Grizz Chapman (30 Rock)
6 seasons in on the Emmy Award winning sitcom, 30 Rock, Grizz has a recurring role as actor Tracy Morgan‟s sidekick aptly named „Grizz.‟ Continuing to grow as an actor is very important to Grizz who sees entertainment as a career path that has become as important to him as music. Although his size cannot be ignored, it is not the sum of his talent. Grizz has never been the “stereotypical big dude;” his life has never been one-dimensional, so his roles shouldn’t be either.
Brooklyn resident (and Russian immigrant) Eugene Mirman is a really great guy and comedian. Eugene has appeared on television, which is still a relevant medium for another few years. Some examples include: his own half hour special on Comedy Central, appearances on Conan O’Brien, a recurring role on HBO’s Flight of the Conchords, Bob’s Burgers, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Home Movies, Lucy, Daughter of the Devil and the Adult Swim live action series Delocated.
