On my 11th guest appearance on the wonderful Comedy Bang Bang podcast Scott Aukerman and I are joined by Interpol’s Paul Banks and Aaron Neville (Horatio Sanz). Craziness and happiness ensues. Listen streaming above or by clicking on the photo below.
Here is my third and final guest appearance (Craig is stepping down in December) on the wonderful Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. The Late Late Show will always hold a special place in my heart because in March 2013, it was the first live late night talk show I was ever invited on. Per usual, everything is made up on the spot and a series of crazy things occur. In this appearance we talk about a series of ridiculous things and TWO BIG TIME CELEBRITIES CALL IN! Enjoy!
Vulture’s fantastic Adrienne Gaffney interviewed me about Jean-Ralphio’s final scenes in Parks and Recreation, This is Where I Leave You, Rabbis and improvising with Jane Fonda. You can read the full article by clicking the photo above or by CLICKING HERE.
An enormous thank you to Joe Berkowitz for writing such an awesome article about me for Co.Create!

I am insanely honored to announce that I am writing/acting in a movie that Seth Rogen is attached to star in and Adam McKay is attached to direct. That is obviously the coolest sentence I’ve ever written. These humans are heroes to me and now I get to play in the same world as Seth, Adam, Evan Goldberg, Point Grey, Gary Sanchez and Good Universe. This is going to be fucking awesome. Seth, Evan and Adam’s quotes from the press release say it best-
Rogen and Goldberg: “Every 2,000 years, the planets of our galaxy align in a perfect line that funnels the cosmic energies of the universe to flow into one perfect comedic collaboration. The time is now. This is that project. Nothing will ever be the same. McKay and Schwartz are real smart, well-endowed guys, and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with them.”
McKay: “Evan and Seth have been doing amazing things and we’re so excited to work with them. Ben, not so much. Most of my problems with him are personal ones, but I have to give it up. He did come up with a great idea.”
HERE’S MY SECOND APPEARANCE ON CONAN WHERE WE CHAT ABOUT RABBIS, JEAN-RALPHIO, FACIAL HAIR AND THE MOON’S BUTTHOLE
Last night, I made my second appearance on Conan to chat about my new movie This Is Where I Leave You (coming out 9/19)! As always, the legend Conan O’Brien was hilarious and wonderful. Right before I came on, I noticed that the moon in Conan’s backdrop looked like a butthole…so…I brought that up. Watch the interview, split up between the two videos below!
The wonderful Manhattan Magazine asked me to write an article about how much I love New York City in exactly 400 words. I tried to stick to my improv roots and write it all in one shot with no edits…and I may have failed. Read the exactly 400 word article by clicking the photo above or CLICKING HERE.
Last night I made my first guest appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote the movie This Is Where I Leave You! An enormous thank you to everyone over at JKL for having me, it was an honor. Jimmy is so hilarious and kind, I had so much fun. Here’s a clip from last night’s show of me chatting with Jimmy about an awkward moment I had acting with the legend Robert De Niro.

I make my sixth appearance on Matt Besser’s wonderful improv podcast- improv4humans. For those who haven’t heard the podcast before, Matt invites a group of improvisers to record an entire long form improv show off of your suggestions, articles in the paper, etc. This episode includes Besser, Mookie Blaiklock, Gil Ozeri and myself. It’s a super fun one. Listen streaming above or by clicking one of the photos below. NSFW.
