Mo Willems is a household name to any parents who have had to endure innumerable readings and re-readings of Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus, Knuffle Bunny, or any of his other colorful kids books. Given the pantheon of cartoon animal characters that populate his bibliography, it's not a total surprise to hear that Mo started out in animation before settling into a writing position on a famous children's TV show. On this episode of Hold On, Mo sat down with Eugene Mirman to tell the story of how he got his foot in the door (and so much more!) at Sesame Street.
In each episode of the Audible Comedy series Hold On, host Eugene Mirman (Bob's Burgers) pauses the funny stories of comedians and performers to get the skinny behind the story. Featured and future guests include: Jim Gaffigan, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Ira Glass, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Kyle Kinane, Jonah Ray, Kumail Nanjiani, Maria Bamford, Hasan Minhaj, Karen Kilgariff, Matt Bellassai, Rhea Butcher, Michael Ian Black, Kelly Oxford, and more!
