Ep. #273: Mary Lynn Rajskub

Mary Lynn Rajskub is a talented comedien and actress who originally hails from Detroit, Michigan. Though she’s likely best known for her portrayal of data analyst Chloe O’Brian on the hit Fox drama 24, for comedy fans she’s well-regarded for her work on groundbreaking efforts like Mr. Show, The Larry Sanders Show, and as a character actress in numerous films. She’s currently touring behind a one-woman comedy show called 24 Hours with Mary Lynn Rajskub, which has been staged at Just for Laughs in Montreal, including upcoming performances on the evenings of July 26, 27, and 28 at the Mainline Theatre. Here, Mary Lynn and I discuss just getting off-stage in Montreal at JFL with her new one-woman show, talking about her family and being known for her role on 24, the yoga teacher and the miniature horse, Chloe as Jack Bauer’s comedic foil and when that dynamic turned, Czech mate, royalty city, the state of the States, a therapeutic performance, current news and politics within her show, the Republican National Convention and fear mongering, the difficulty of mocking the mocker making a mockery of everything, real time social media reactions, Drumpf the performer and character, word salads, a Canadian invasion, her work on The Larry Sanders Show, her relationship with Garry Shandling, his generosity and emotional awareness, Janeane Garofalo and David Cross and how their friendship led to her auditioning for Shandling, Peter Tolan and Judd Apatow and Peter Smokler, inside Hollywood, love and hate, taking her show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and then the day was done.

For almost 30 years now, he’s been at the vanguard of comedy, writing and/or performing on influential and hilarious TV programs such as The Ben Stiller Show, Mr. Show, Arrested Development, The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, W/Bob & David, and many more. He’s appeared in dozens of feature films, published a book of essays called I Drink for a Reason, and he’s well-known for his three incisive stand-up records: Shut Up You Fucking Baby!, It’s Not Funny, and Bigger and Blackerer. He’s on a world tour right now for a stand-up show he’s calling Making America Great Again!!, which includes July Canadian stops in Calgary on the 22nd, Edmonton on the 23rd, Toronto on the 24th and 25th , Ottawa on the 26th, and Montreal on the 27th. During a phone call while he was in Stockholm this past Monday, David and I discussed the mood in Europe post-Brexit, immigration and misinformation, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, how his current show actually relates to”Make America Great Again,” the state of satire, plans to work with Bob Odenkirk again, what’s happening with Arrested Development, “Flying on a Mexican Plane,” and that was it.
