This Week in Comedy is cool and I always enjoy the people being interviewed and I usually enjoy Crasnick, but he did something that really bothered me in this interview. First of all, he had complimented David Cross's honest attitude. He said he always liked that David wouldn't change himself for an audience which would also seemingly imply that he appreciates David's unwillingness to lie to be nice, that David always says exactly what he thinks of any given person and directly to that person's face. David made fun of the band that Ed had on and it didn't seem like a big deal for anyone since they all laughed and then moved on with the interview. When it came to the point where the band was going to play another song, the technical difficulties were suddenly too much for Crasnick and he cheerfully asked Cross to disconnect so they could be fixed. And as soon as David was gone, he and the band started talking bad about him. They played another song and David was reconnected. The way David was so sweet, friendly and oblivious to the mean little thing they had just done made watching it very uncomfortable at the end, especially when he got a little nostalgic with Ed about when they met long ago and how it had felt like finding a group of friends on the first day of school, and the way Crasnick smiled at him then like a two faced asshole. If he really did appreciate that David didn't talk phony to any audience, he would have also appreciated that David didn't talk phony to him. At least enough to say, "Yeah, well I like them." back at David, which is what David Cross would say to anyone who was knocking a band he liked. That small part of the interview sort of ruined it for me, but otherwise it was funny and interesting.
