Episode notes

This week on The Sound of Young America, two men who hold the keys to WORLDS OF WONDER.

Chris Elliott came to prominence in the early 1980s as the buffoonish foil on “Late Night with David Letterman.” His career has also included the cult sitcom “Get A Life” and film “Cabin Boy,” as well as several seasons on the hit sitcom “Everybody Love Raymond.” Most recently, he’s become an author, and his absurd 19th century mystery, “The Shroud of the Thwacker,” has just been released in paperback. Be sure to take a listen to our special bonus questions for Chris for comedy nerd insider info on his specials, “Action Family” and “FDR: The One Man Show,” among other stuff.

Then we speak with Terry Gilliam. Since his days as a member of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, he’s directed many acclaimed films, including “Brazil,” “Time Bandits,” “The Fisher King,” and “Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas.” His most recent film, “Tideland,” a dark and disturbing fairy tale, is in theaters now.
