The multitalented Michael Blieden stops by the calming shores for the very first time on this week’s very special Sklarbro Country! Randy and Jason reflect on the past week’s bizarre news stories before getting into with our guest and discussing what is was like working with Craig Kilborn on the early days of The Daily Show. After reminiscing about an old Cheap Seats sketch they all worked together on, Mike discusses how he came to direct the very popular Fiona Apple/Zach Galifianakis music video, which lead to his even more well-known collaboration with Kanye West. Mike shares many more fascinating tales from his career before rattling off some Quick Hits, and the show wraps up with a hilarious phone call with Tim Gunn from a few weeks back in which he shares his thoughts on the shocking Anderson Silva upset.
