Our guest is Art Bell; the man who pitched the idea that became Comedy Central. Art was also the head of programming at the network.
We do a deep dive into the origin of such iconic shows as Mystery Science Theater 3000, South Park, The Daily Show - and talk about the early careers of Jon Stewart, Marc Maron, and Bill Maher.
Art also has a new book out: Constant Comedy: How I Started Comedy Central and Lost My Sense of Humor.
