Neon Joe: Werewolf Hunter
, a five-night special from Adult Swim, punches America in the face this week, proving that Jon Glaser is one of the strangest and most talented minds in comedy right now. After a werewolf begins attacking citizens in the fictional town of Garrity, Vermont (B&B Town, USA!), who can they turn to but the gun-slinging, erotica-writing loner, Neon Joe. As secrets get revealed and pubes get tested, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems in this hilarious horror parody.

Glaser is at his comedic best as the one-eyed Joe, but there’s a wealth of hilarious performers adding their own weirdness to the show. Uproxx had the opportunity to chat with Scott Adsit, who plays the local barkeep, Sonny Cocoa, and Stephanie March, who plays Garrity’s deadpan mayor.

Jon Glaser’s characters and his comedic style is just insane, over the top and hilariously bizarre. Neon Joe is no different. What was it about this project that drew you to it in the first place?

Scott Adsit: Well, I’ve known Jon from years ago, we did Second City together back in the ’90s. I felt we had a very good rapport, and it was a great time. So, any time I get a chance to work with Jon, I do, and by doing TV shows, I can get paid for it, so that’s nice too. I just love everything that Glaser does, so I follow him around when he calls.

Stephanie March: I would say I love everything he does, and I follow the two of them around, although this is the first time I have had the opportunity to work with Jon. I worked with Scott briefly before on 30 Rock, but I never worked with Jon before. And it was just too funny and weird and so different from the other things that I’ve worked on not to try it. Scott said it best, saying nobody plays a fatuous, confident asshole better than Jon. But it was still the absolutely nicest, kindest, and most generous group of people. I just felt so comfortable and had a great time.

Stephanie, you’ve done comedy before, but most people know you from Law & Order: SVU, which I imagine is a tightly scripted show, so was it a bit of a challenge working with the more seasoned improv comics, or did you just jump right in?
