Please give a warm Secure The Gag welcome to writer, comedian, and actor, Caleb Hearon (Human Resources, Fargo, Variety’s 10 Comics To Watch)!

Caleb is the king of POV character videos and we are mere peasants. In this episode, Nathan and Caleb discuss and breakdown his viral character videos, joke writing, and Twitter as a platform for ugly wordsmiths. They also chat about the ~performance of masculinity~ and Caleb’s sketch comedy goals! (Those two last bits do not go together - but very well could!)

Caleb’s Work That’s Discussed:

pov: you’re my coworker and I’m telling you the first part of an entire weekend I spent with our other coworker

a polite person calling in a bomb threat

@EvaVictor “the girl from the movie who is “different” thread

the best man speech at every straight wedding

one of those little stories they tell in folk songs
