Matt Koff

Season 2, Episode 4,  Jul 10, 2020, 02:15 PM

My guest this week is Matt Koff, an Emmy-award winning comedian who has been a writer at The Daily Show, with both Jon Stewart and Trevor Noah, since 2013. He’s also written for The Onion and Hasan Minhaj’s barnstorming White House Correspondents' Dinner, toured with both John Oliver and Bo Burnham, and, at the end of 2019, released his excellent debut standup album, Who’s My Little Guy. (If you haven't heard it already, do so immediately!) Recorded on 7 May 2020, we chatted straight after he finished a day of writing for the show, about the day’s top stories, writing late night in a pandemic, the importance of Monty Python, the surprisingly high-octane plot of Goodnight Moon and much much more. Bonus fun fact: this was the first interview we’ve had that spanned two days due to UK / New York time difference.
