The Kasper Hauser Comedy Group are a San Francisco-based sketch comedy group who’ve been mainstays of The Sound of Young America, and have appeared on Comedy Central and on This American Life. They’re the authors of three hilarious books: “SkyMaul: Happy Crap You Can Buy From A Plane,” “Obama’s Blackberry,” and “Weddings of the Times.” They also wrote the website Wonderglen for former Onion editor and Daily Show executive producer Ben Karlin.
On this special hour-long Sound of Young America special, they talk about their careers, and we hear their comedy — both sketches produced for The Kasper Hauser Comedy Podcast and all-new pieces.
About the show
Bullseye (formerly known as The Sound of Young America) is a weekly celebration of the best of arts and culture. Host Jesse Thorn sifts the wheat from the chaff to bring listeners in-depth interviews with the most revered and revolutionary minds in our culture.
The show is carried by public radio stations around the country, and was the first public radio program west of the Mississippi to podcast. It has received plaudits from publications like Time Magazine (which called it “Pick of the Podcasts”) and Salon.com. It was also honored by the iTunes editorial staff as a “classic” Best of iTunes selection. Since April 2013, the show has been distributed by NPR.
