Download

This week on Going Off Track our guest is comedian Chris Gethard, host of public access sensation The Chris Gethard Show and author of A Bad Idea I’m About To Do: True Tales Of  Seriously Poor Judgment And Stunning Awkward Adventure. “I think some of the funniest stuff in my stand-up and the book is some of the least funny stuff in real life,” he explains at one point and that’s a great summary of this incredibly honest podcast which highlights Gethard’s own battle with depression. That said, he does it with an unrivaled sense of humor and whether he’s talking about a gun being drawn on him in New Jersey or being traumatized by high school bullies, Gethard has an uncanny ability to put a humorous spin on some of life’s darkest moments.
