Dan Pasternack and I go back to 2007, when I was just thinking about launching The Comic’s Comic while he was actually launching Super Deluxe. Dan’s career started when he was just a kid, with a song on the Dr. Demento show, and he’s met or worked with just about everybody — even becoming close friends with the great Jonathan Winters. Dan helped launch almost every IFC series you love, and he’s doing the same thing now as head of Big Beach TV. He also has an amazing signed comedy record collection that he writes about for McSweeney’s. But that’s nothing compared to his Milton Berle encounter.

So let’s get to it!
