Hello everyone. My name is Chris Gethard, and I am nervous all of the time.

I’ve really enjoyed being back on MNN, but I won’t lie – the episodes feel slightly off to me and I think it’s because I am so overwhelmed by this year. We shot the pilot and are waiting to hear if it’s a go. My album comes out this week and I’m terrified no one will like it. I taped a Comedy Central half hour and am scared it will bomb.

These are all GREAT problems to have but I can’t lie, I am nervous all the time. I haven’t really done anything except WORK and stay at home. I am no longer social and barely see other human beings. I am scheduling tons of shows so I can just kind of stay under the radar personal life wise.

This week, we discuss that nervousness, the nervousness of the rest of the TCGS world regarding the pilot’s fate, and the idea of nervousness in general. Call in at 212-757-1393 and let us know what makes YOU nervous! We want to hear about nerves. It’s all I’m feeling lately, so let’s deal with it LIVE ON PUBLIC ACCESS!

On top of that, music from JEFF ROSENSTOCK! Jeff is by far one of the people our fans have requested the most to be on the show and we’re lucky to have him. On top of his solo career, Jeff just started a new band called ANTARTIGO VESPUCCI that put out a killer set of songs, and he was the head honcho of the incomparable Bomb the Music Industry! AND he and I are working on a musical about an ice cream store. This is not a joke. I can’t wait to have him on it. There are few people whose methods and ideals and vibe match TCGS as well as Jeff Rosenstock, and we are lucky to have him!


4/16 on TCGS: JD’s Nightmare w/music by Field Mouse!

Everyone knows that a director is the linchpin to any endeavor with as many moving parts as TCGS has. And our fans know that TCGS’s director is JD Amato, a workhorse who has put so much of this show on his shoulders since our move to public access that he arguably has more to doContinue Reading

Last week we returned with a bang! We waxed the Human Fish! Random Sandy Kane became our newest Random!
