Eugene Mirman brought David onstage at the NYC Podfest to revisit the impromptu execution of that practical joke and ask him questions about how it all played out. Live from New York it's Hold On with Eugene Mirman!

He's also probably the most famous astrophysicist ever to tell a story to any Eugene for any reason, but it's the story he told THIS Eugene that you'll want to hear. In it, a pre-fame Neil weighs a potential graduate school job. If you were given as many guesses as there are stars in the universe, you probably couldn't guess what that job was!

You can hear some of that heart – and some of those barbs – in Lisa’s story about a wonderful, memorable man she dated and the health concern that drove her away. Where do comedians go when they want to answer questions about stories they’ve told? They come right here, to Hold On.

    Even kinda horrible insult comics are human....

Asking someone to the big dance comes with enough hurdles as it is, so Hasan Minhaj (The Daily Show) was convinced that his strict Indian father and his family's cultural quirks would ruin any shot he might have at finding someone to slow dance with on prom night. On this episode of Hold On, host Eugene Mirman takes Hasan back to high school to find out if he managed to score his dream date for the big night.

    [Contains explicit content] Alice Wetterlund (People of Earth, Silicon Valley, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates) thinks it's important to do the right thing. Sometimes that means looking out for the disadvantaged — even if they walk on four legs and hiss. Eugene Mirman is a curious cat, so he invited Alice to SF Sketchfest 2017 to spin a yarn about empathy, gratitude, and feral kittens.

    [Contains explicit content] Andy Kindler (Bob's Burgers, Everybody Loves Raymond) seems to possess a neurotic energy and a sharp mind for pointed criticism, so his insights on the world of comedy are respected by many. What might not be immediately apparent about Andy is that he used to be a hippy-dippy folk musician and frequent consumer of psychedelics.

    [Contains explicit content] On this episode of Hold On, host Eugene Mirman sits down with fellow comedian Ken Reid to hear a story about his super-weird neighbor Eddie Murphy -- no, not THAT Eddie Murphy. Eugene asks Ken about being a nosy neighbor, bizarre Halloween traditions, and the effect early exposure to horror movies can have on a kid. Ken originally told his story for the live show RISK! in New York. This one's not for the faint of heart!

    Lizz Winstead: Daily Show creator, author of Lizz Free or Die, radio host, stand-up, activist. There isn't a part of the political comedy landscape that she hasn't had a hand in. The personal is political, too, so Eugene Mirman invited Lizz to come into the studio to share her unique experiences with end of life planning for her parents and all the lessons she learned.
