Jessi Klein is the executive producer and head writer for Inside Amy Schumer, which is all an intelligent BlocHead such as yourself should need to know to just go ahead and start listening. She was also a development executive at Comedy Central, which means she knows the business as well as the creative side of comedy writing and she’s got a few thoughts about that that are well worth hearing… so just go ahead and start listening. Jessi also wrote for SNL for a short time (we don’t talk about that) and several other shows (which we also don’t talk about), mainly because we’re busy the whole time talking about her influences, her journey to comedy writing, and, of course, Inside Amy Schumer — which is hilarious… so just go ahead and start listening. This episode was taped live at Fontana’s on the Lower East Side of Manhattan as part of New York Podfest 2015. If you missed it this year, look for it in 2016. As Podfests go, it’s definitely one of the best. And don’t miss Season 3 of Inside Amy Schumer starting April 21st. Now will ya just go ahead and start listening already?! Jeesh!! Listen on iTunes.
