This week, we welcome back Simpsons writer Brian Kelley! Last time on “ECUS” we talked to him about the Season 29 premiere episode “The Serfsons”. This time, we expand the conversation to include his experiences writing on Futurama, NewsRadio and the much-maligned Friends spin-off Joey! Brian’s impressive resume is as long as his spirit is embiggening to the smallest man (which is to say, a LOT). Join Allie and Julia as we venture down this ’90s-centric walk down Brian’s memory lane — including the time he wrote sketches for his comedy hero Steve Martin on SNL!
This episode was recorded remotely during quarantine. You might notice differing audio quality from previous episodes – but we’re trying to make it work for you! Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.
