Comcastrodors, please welcome actor, comedian, writer, producer, and musician Dave Sheridan to the podcast. Well-known for his roles as Officer Doofy in Scary Movie and Doug in Ghost World, Dave began his career with Saturday Night Live and Second City and is credited with introducing the first reality series to the MTV audience with Buzzkill, a show about three slackers who videotape their pranks. Host Maximüs Groves and guest host Jarren Wood chat with Dave about what it was like pitching to MTV and Fox at age 25 and the inherent conflict of being simultaneous writer, actor, and producer in your own production. The conversation turns to genre spoofs, grindhouse films, traditional film financing versus crowdfunding, time traveling social trends in period pieces, and the mastery of Cuban scientists over disease.
