Chris Gethard is the host of the podcast Beautiful Stories From Anonymous People and The Chris Gethard Show, a bizarre talk show on the Fusion network that became a cult hit on Manhattan public access over the course of five years. He’s also a stand up who’s had a half hour special on Comedy Central and tours all over the country, as well as a UCB Theater mainstay having performed at the NYC branch of their theater for sixteen years. You may have seen him come up for air in the mainstream with acting roles on shows like Broad City, Inside Amy Schumer, Parks and Recreation, The Office, and Louie, and films like The Heat and The Other Guys. He’s been heard on This American Life a bunch of times and New York Magazine once called him “The Carson of Cable Access”.
Beautiful Stories From Anonymous People
with Chris Gethard
1 phone call. 1 hour. No names. No holds barred. That’s the premise behind Beautiful Stories from Anonymous People, hosted by comedian Chris Gethard (the Chris Gethard Show, Broad City, This American Life, and one of Time Out’s “10 best comedians of 2015”). Every week, Chris opens the phone line to one anonymous caller—and he can’t hang up first, no matter what. From shocking confessions and family secrets to philosophical discussions and shameless self-promotion, anything can and will happen!
