A not-safe-for-work chat with Eugene Mirman, John Roberts and Kristen Schaal
[WARNING: This video will not be suitable or funny for all viewers.]
FOX premieres "Bob's Burgers" at 8:30 p.m. on Sunday (Jan. 9), the rare Seth MacFarlane-free addition to the network's Animation Domination lineup.
I liked the pilot for the comedy, which comes from Loren Bouchard ("Home Movies"), but I've struggled to find a way to explain my amusement in review-form.
For now, this video will have to suffice.
It's an interview I did with "Bob's Burgers" vocal stars Eugene Mirman, John Roberts and Kristen Schaal at a FOX interview day back in September. Calling it an "interview," though, may not be exactly right. Basically, I walked into a room and sat down opposite Mirman, Roberts and Schaal and held on for dear life. They sang, did impressions and went to some utterly absurd comedic places. Occasionally I asked questions, but that was less about establishing a line of inquiry and more about pushing and instigating their material.
Attempting to edit this video down would be pointless. There's no real beginning. There's no real end. And I'm not sure how many "answers" there are. But large chunks of it are hilarious. Or bizarre. Or... something.
As it says above, this not quite safe for family or workplace viewing.
