Comedian and writer Harris Wittels passed away on February 19, 2015. This is Marc’s conversation with Harris, originally posted on September 16, 2013. Plenty of casual talk about Harris' relationship to drugs, which is hard not to focus on given his death ~15 months after this was recorded. Otherwise, lots of good talk about Harris' upbringing and intro to comedy. Also, some good music and concert talking – including some great tales of Harris' time following Phish on the road.
0:00 – Marc's brief intro (recorded February 2015). Worth listening. Brief sentiments on news of Harris' passing, as well as comments on the varied casual talk about drugs during this episode.
2:39 – Interview with Harris begins. Good stuff from here onward.
21:34 – Terrific little story from Harris about buying fake tickets at a Phish show, and what he did to the scalper to get even.
1:05:30 – Final comment from Marc (recorded 2015). Very short.
