Additional Information

It's always a magical occurrence when a podcast you enjoy, one day, Pinocchio-like, becomes a real, live event.
Join How Was Your Week? host Julie Klausner on October 20th as she welcomes guests PAUL F. TOMPKINS, BILLY EICHNER and rock star TED LEO, who will be on stage the entire night to play a live, full-length version of the How Was Your Week? theme song, in addition to other music that is important for you to have in your ears.

Plus, special surprise guests! Comedy of all sorts of kinds of things! Videos, we think! And much, much more. So much more than a live-on-stage version of a podcast, this show is, however, mostly that. 

Julie Klausner is a comedy writer/performer, podcaster, and author. Her first book, I Don’t Care About Your Band, was released in 2010 from Gotham Books, and her podcast, How Was Your Week, was recently named one of the best 10 comedy podcasts of the moment by Rolling Stone and one of the best podcasts in GQ’s Comedy Issue. In July 2010, Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s production company, Gary Sanchez Productions,optioned I Don’t Care About Your Band for a television series to star Lizzy Caplan. Julie’s TV staff writing credits include Best Week Ever with Paul F. Tompkins, Billy Eichner’s upcoming Funny or Die show for Fuse, and The Big Gay Sketch Show. She’s also written forRobert Smigel’s “TV Funhouse” on SNL, and for comedy legend Joan Rivers on a few different occasions.

Paul F. Tompkins is a comedian. I'm sorry-- Paul F. Tompkins is THE comedian. He was the host of VH1's Best Week Ever for a while. You may have or may yet see him on Mr. Show with Bob and David, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Real Time with Bill Maher, Countdown with Keith Olbermann and over four other things. He has been seen in the films Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Tenacious D In The Pick of Destiny, There Will Be Blood and The Informant! (emphasis the movie's). 
Ted Leo came to indie fame in the late-'80s New York hardcore scene by playing with Citizen's Arrest and Animal Crackers. He then moved to Washington, D.C. where he founded Chisel, a mod/punk outfit that you should already know about. When they disbanded, Ted headed up north to New York City and started playing as Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and eventually signed with Matador Records. He released his first record with them, The Brutalist Bricks, in 2010. Catch Ted Leo and the Pharmacists on tour this fall all over the US of A.

Billy Eichner is a comedian, actor, writer,  and host known for his popular viral videos. He is currently hosting a new pop culture trivia game show inspired by his viral videos, which will premiere on Fuse this winter and is produced by Funny or Die. His credits include Upright Citizens Brigade, The Huffington Post, Funny or Die, Gawker, Entertainment Weekly, VH1, Jezebel, New York Magazine, BBC America chat show Would You Rather? with Graham Norton, Fashion Police on E!, The Bravo A-List Awards on Bravo, Joan Rivers' Straight Talk, and Best Week Ever on VH1.
