pablo funny

I've known Chris Hardwick for over a decade, which is just short of "since forever." He was in a fraternity with my friend Cal, and Cal introduced him to our group of friends when I was sixteen or seventeen. Chris and I immediately hit it off, mostly because we have the exact same ultra-twisted sense of humor, and we've been friends ever since.

Over the years, Chris has grown into one of the most talented people I know (which, surprisingly, is saying a lot. It turns out that I know a lot of talented people.) He's a brilliant comedy writer, and an incredibly talented stand-up performer.

But the reason I'm writing about him today is to share with the world his latest project, which made me gasp with astonishment and convulse with laughter: Rodeohead.

Yeah. Because his rock opera based on the movie Tron wasn't enough, Chris made a bluegrass tribute to Radiohead.

Hey Chris, stop being so funny. It's fucking up the comedy curve for the rest of the class, ya bastard.

PS Chris says, "would you mind terribly mentioning that this was done with mike phirman? this is definitely a hard 'n phirm thing that i can't remotely take all of the credit for. this has lived on phirman's computer for the last year and i want him to know that he's appreciated.

thank you a gajillion times,
your friend in time,
emmett "doc" brown

Posted by: Mike at May 27, 2004 10:27 AM

hmmm. highly unorthodox. *wonders if Wil will approve*

Posted by: seasnail at May 27, 2004 10:32 AM

Chris Hardwick is hilarious! I remember him from Singled Out and Shipmates (which pissed me off when it got cancelled; that was my favorite show!)

Good luck to him... He rocks!

Posted by: glitterbelle at May 27, 2004 10:37 AM

Posted by: Lucas at May 27, 2004 01:36 PM

Wil,
I visited the site and that was tooooooo funny! OK by this time next week you should be the proud owner of a Kia! Woo hoo! How do I get in on this deal? LOL!

Posted by: Chattylill at May 27, 2004 03:05 PM

I saw Chris perform once in Westwood, he had me rolling on the floor he was so funny, seriously..best guy

Posted by: Lloyd at May 27, 2004 06:52 PM

Wow. Amazing. It takes a lot of talent to translate a song across genres and these guys have it.

Posted by: Chris at May 27, 2004 06:57 PM

No offense Will, but it ain't Hayseed Dixie -- who do great bluegrass covers of Snoop's Gin & Juice, AC/DC. etc.

The thing is Rodeohead comes off as comedy (the whip SFX, etc).

That's Ok.

But turning great songs (like radiohead's) into a different genre and still making them work -- well, that's art.

Anne,

Enjoyed so much your article about Kris. She seems to have such a positive attitude about life.
Nice picture of you and her; I love your turquoise bracelet.

Freeman :)

P.S. for Wil: I just heard on the news that Brian Bonsall (Alexander son of Worf son of Moag) was arrested for drunken driving. Too many Guinnesses.

Posted by: Freeman in Louisiana at June 2, 2004 05:37 PM

"Naaa na na...na na na naaaa...na na na naaa...
hey Jude..." I see your autographed copy of Dancing Barefoot is up to $127--congratulations!!

Freeman :)

Wil,

I don't think I've ever seen a picture of your Mom. I've seen pictures of your Dad and Aunt Val in your photo gallery. Would you please post a picture of your Mom.

Freeman :)

P.S. I don't eat chicken either.

Posted by: Freeman in Louisiana at June 4, 2004 07:55 PM

Wil,

You have lost a wonderful neighbor and fellow actor, Ronald Reagan. May he rest in peace. May 'los angeles' escort him to the shining city.

Freeman :(
