15 Minutes: a podcast about fame, with Jamie Berger


Episode 30 - Abbi Crutchfield

Abbi Crutchfield is the co-host of Tru TV’s You can Do Better. She’s a comedian, currently touring as one of four funnywomen on the CAKE comedy tour (cakecomedy.com) and former host of People Magazine’s Now. She has been featured on MTV, VH1, CollegeHumor and in national commercials. She is a contributor to Someecards, and her jokes are listed among the Best Tweets of the Year by Huffington Post Comedy. She’s been living in L.A., to shoot the second season of You Can Do Better, but later this year will return to Brooklyn, where she co- produces the weekly stand-up hour The Living Room Show, Fridays at 8pm Postmark Cafe in Brooklyn. Those of you who’ve been listening to the show for a while will remember my conversation with my old friend Matthew Latkiewicz, her co-host, back in Episode 9. In that episode, Matthew rather extremely candidly expressed his cynicism about the show he was about to debut, along with just about everything about fame. Since watching the first season of the show, in which Abbi tends to play good cop to Matthew’s kind of geek bad boy, I’ve wanted to get her perspective on it all. So I finally did. After one botched recording, we spoke a second time, with much better results, at least in terms of audio quality, in February.
