Welcome back friends, let’s get to know another very talented performer who you may or may not be familiar with already. This week’s human is Sam Richardson, who is known for his breakout role as Richard Splett on Veep, and is also the co-creator and star of the new and very excellent Comedy Central show Detroiters alongside past Funny Human Tim Robinson.
Here’s a clip from the first episode of the new show! It’s such a great show, you guys.
I first saw Sam when he was a performer here in Chicago at Second City! He was excellent then, too. Here’s a sketch from his Second City days.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AJoHrSOObk
Sam was recently a guest on Conan, here’s a clip of him talking about the new show, and the real-life inspirations behind their characters!
Now is the part of the column where we embed some nice tweets from our featured funny person. Here we go!
My dream is to one day punch someone so hard it causes an explosion.
