Gotta Watch: This Jest In

CNN recently launched a new comedy series called This JEST In, and every Friday we’ll be sharing interviews with some of the finest comedians in all the land.  In the coming weeks we’ll bring you such big names as Chris Hardwick, Russell Peters, and Maria Bamford, just to name a few. There are no rules and no topics are off limits.

Adam Lakers Carolla – It wasn’t quite like gaining access to President Obama’s birth certificate (you know, the long-form one), but the most difficult part of putting this video together was obtaining a scan of Carolla’s drivers license. But we kept at it, and can proudly bring you proof that his middle name really is Lakers. As in Los Angeles Lakers. As in, no longer in the playoffs.

Kristen Schaal: Sex is hilarious – From "The Daily Show" to "Flight of the Conchords," Kristen Schaal is an accomplished comedian known for her alternative style of comedy and unmistakably unique voice. When she sat down with CNN, she talked about her favorite subject: sex. She also talked about an awkward experience with Wolf Blitzer. Is it as scandalous as it sounds? Maybe. You’ll have to watch.

Jim Norton: career killer – It can be argued that no other man has been as destructive to the careers of other comics as Jim Norton. He considers himself a “cancer” and even admits to single-handedly bringing down the Jay Leno Show.

    You're considering Adam a comedian, how interesting. He's right downn there with Kimmel,Sandler,and Ferrell. Cosby,Allen and others must no longer be proud of their trade.

    I dated an Allen once. Very gentle but too handsome. He was stolen from me due to another man.
