Episode #53: Max Silvestri

Max Silvestri is a comedian, writer and actor living in Los Angeles. But for seven years, Silvestri hosted one of the hottest indie comedy nights each Wednesday in Williamsburg, Brooklyn – co-hosting “Big Terrific” with Gabe Liedman and Jenny Slate. While living in Brooklyn, Silvestri began recapping Top Chef and other mostly food-based TV shows for the likes of Eater.com, Food & Wine Magazine, GQ and Grantland. He released his first stand-up comedy album, “King Piglet,” in 2014, making multiple best-of lists – that year he also co-hosted The Feed on the FYI TV network. Now he’s hosting a new culinary competition series, Recipe for Deception, on Bravo.

So let’s get to it!
