Two years ago, I sat down with Eugene Mirman, John Roberts and Kristen Schaal to discuss their yet-to-premiere animated comedy “Bob’s Burgers.”
The resulting interview was 12-plus minutes of wacky, uninterrupted, only occasionally on-topic hilarity featuring songs, impressions and some of the strangest pop culture references imaginable.
I can’t recommend it highly enough.
A few weeks ago, I walked into the interview room with Mirman (Gene on “Bob’s Burgers”) and Roberts (Linda) and they immediately recognized me from that bizarre interview. This time, Schaal was absent and Dan Mintz (unmistakably Tina) was in her place and it’s possible that if you go back to the original conversation, a good percentage of the insanity came from her direction.
This interview isn’t quite so crazy. But it has some moments of hilarity and it features Roberts singing a new HitFix-themed song in the style of Michael McDonald.
“Bob’s Burgers” airs Sundays at 8:30 p.m. on FOX.
