Fish Out of Water is a comedy writing podcast hosted by Jeremiah Burton and Ryan Tweedy. Each week they have a new guest join them and talk about various types of comedy writing from television to the internet to live theater. It’s a podcast where comedians get to nerd out about writing comedy and talk about what makes them laugh.
In this episode of Fish Out Of Water, Brett Greenberg joins us to talk about writing for the new version of the television show “Mad TV”. We discuss what it’s like being in a writer’s room for the first time and also some of the aspects of writing for television versus stage. Brett, Jeremiah and Tweedy go way back, they were all writers on the same sketch team at iO west for a brief moment but now Jeremiah and Brett still write for Dad Jeans. Tweedy no longer does. That’s pretty sad but he manages to not let it destroy him emotionally.
