General Discussion The Chris Gethard Show & Tone

Hey Blue schoolers. Help out!

Let’s try to get Tone to appear as a musical guest on the fucking hilarious Chris Gethard Show. It’s a bizarre SNL type of show that films live right here in NYC.

Here’s a link to an episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1GkZe57Prso

I posted a message on the TCGS message board suggesting Tone as a musical guest. Follow this link to see the thread I just started: http://bit.ly/17rORPr

Create an account and send some messages to show support.

Hopefully, this is something Tone would want to do as well, if not, let’s petition him too! Razz

I fully agree. I will speak more to this when I get off work. But right now, I will say here is the application for musical guests:

Awesome heads up! Great meeting a fan of both QN5 and TCGS! Do you go to the live tapings ever?

Blue schoolers, show support! There’s been little turnout. Diddy & Cipha have both appeared on the show so it’s not a small time gig. And this is a thing that could very, very likely happen. Let’s make it happen.

Yeah, I go pretty much every week. How about you?

I think the main thing is see if it’s something Tone would be interested in doing. I think it’d be amazing.


I’m just gonna give some back story on Chris Gethard, as him and Tone are probably the people I look up to the most and have kinda parallel backgrounds.

-Came up as a teenager in improv comedy before UCB blew up and made a name for himself as one of the best in the scene.

-Saw many of his peers get huge amounts of shine (booking gigs on SNL, 30 Rock, etc) while he was constantly overlooked.

-Did eventually get a big break being cast as the lead in a Comedy Central show (Big Lake). Unfortunately the show bombed terribly.

-Eventually, instead of trying to appeal to the major networks and get stuck in Hollywood politics, he decided to make his own low-budget show on public access TV where he could do the weird shit he wanted to do. While he does come from a comedy background, it’s not 100% a comedy show. It’s funny, it’s sad, it’s weird, it’s stupid, it’s everything - goes beyond genre.

-The show constantly gets praised by critics and has amassed a relatively small, yet wildly devoted fan base who Gethard interacts with openly on a daily basis.


Fuck, I don’t think I realized just how similar they are. To go even further, Gethard suffers from high anxiety and neuroses and just recently admitted in an interview that he “eats butt.”


This needs to go down.

I don’t! I I live deep in BK, so it’s hard staying out that late with work the next day. I’m going to make it out either next week for the big announcement or the week after for SANDWICH NIGHT!!!! We should knock a few brews back before going to see TCGS.

The parallels between Tone & Chris are so close to identical that it’s scary. They both have a crazy dark side and are mad talented. Perfect fit. Seriously kindred spirits working in different (and even similar) mediums.

I’m down. Let’s do this.

I posted. Would definitely be cool to see.

Yeahhhh

Tone just fill out this thing:

preferably soon, as I’m not sure if the show is gonna exist in it’s current state for much longer!

Tonedeff said:I’m down. Let’s do this.

Hell Yeah!!

I’d fill out the guest form on your behalf, but not sure if you’d want me to.

Would be insane having this go down!

Yeah! I don’t think there are two people I look up to more than Tone and Geth. The two in the same room would be absolutely mindblowing.

And just FYI - They just announced tonight that TCGS has been green lit for a pilot on Comedy Central, so this would be quite a big deal indeed.


Also, I was reppin my QN5 show hard tonight on camera for the taping.

Dude! Just caught the taped version. You’re on screen for mad long rockin the QN5 tee! So ill! Don’t know how I missed that when I saw it live. I guess I was too amped for all other on-stage shenanigans.

Check out the episode & see QN5 being repped on air during a classic episode:

Welp, that made me so unreasonably happy! Hope this goes through!
